The fly dubai associated flight was a bit tricky the plane was uncomfortable and I was assigned a seat next to loo.

Fine Emirates service, everything you'd expect. Good food and drink, good service, good entertainment. Not the worst seats, for economy class. Only real problem was the lack of mask enforcement. Probably about 5% of passengers didn't bother, and the crew didn't do anything to ask them.

Check in was smooth, are all the Covid requirements necessary for vaccinated travelers

Cons: "The crew service is very bad, they are rude. And the thing from dubai to Hyderabad one of the attendants doesn't even help with the luggage, don't close the top shelf behaved as if untounchavility prevailed which Is very bad"
Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Pros: "Seat was okay and the laptop bag considered an extra carry-on was not good and I had to consolidate."
Cons: "Qatar airways allowed us to take both separately and we could take up exit row if available without payment"

Then all were offloaded. - We were made to sit on airport for flight for about 6 hours. - I was not allowed to exit or reschedule the flight until i waited for 6 hours. - Still its not confirmed whether the flight will depart on given time. - I missed my important work in India. - The new flight arrives Mumbai midnight 2:30 am which is very hectic for me. I paid more for the flight at the time of booking knowing it will reach in the evening."

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."

Pros: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR.

Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"

Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."

Cons: "Menu options were somewhat limited"
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."

Pros: "Cordial staff and good food"
Cons: "Leg room and head phones did not work properly"

Allow to suitcase for in

Very good service, all were ok/excellent

Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.

Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great.

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."
Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the onboarding staff was exceptional. Some onboarding staffs were unfriendly."
Cons: "Not allowing a laptop bag unlike Etihad, Emirates and other airlines was a bummer."
Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"
Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"
Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"
Cons: "Refund my ticket"
Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."
Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."
Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
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: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"
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: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "Good"
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: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."
Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."
Pros: "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."
Cons: "Nothing."
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."
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "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!"
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 times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"
Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"
Pros: "I always appreciate the cleanliness of Rwanda! This carries over to their planes too. Good staff on the plane. Too short of a flight for entertainment- it was amazing they even served the quick drink and snacks they did! Good on-time flights."
Cons: "After I bought my tickets the flights were rescheduled, giving us an 8 hour layover between flights... some in our party were stuck in the airport with nothing to do, and there is nothing to do in that airport. One question, when will passengers learn that listening to music or movies on the plane without headphones is really uncool?"
Pros: "Free wifibat the airport and the charging stations"
Pros: "It was a short flight and all went well. We even had time for a snack."
Pros: "Service! Smooth ride and good food!"
Pros: "Crew.. single person was okay. Overall company operation plus late flight was poor"
Cons: "Luggage handling could be better. Flight on schedule will be good."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Free water please!"
Cons: "Die Wartezeit in Londonit 5,5 Stunden war viel zu lang, das sollte auch kürzer möglich sein"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and responsive."
Cons: "USB slot that works and also headphone jack that works. Warm food will be appreciated"
Cons: "We left Baltimore an hour and a half late and missed our connecting flight to Paris."
Pros: "Check-in at BWI could not have been nice/more courteous. Great flight and crew!"
Cons: "We love this BA flight out of BWI."
Pros: "The crew was professional. Plenty of space to store my carry on bag overhead. I also like the safety video at the beginning, featuring actors and comedians."
Cons: "I have no complaints about this flight."
Pros: "The one saving grace, however, was the arrival lounge at Heathrow, which did have excellent breakfast food."
Cons: "The seats in business class were very small and uncomfortable. We are not large people, but there was no room to sleep. Plus the service was not warm, the food unappetizing. We will never fly on British Airways again."
Pros: "British airways and the customer service"
Cons: "The fact that I was use inbooked a premium economy ticket on Kayak and when I got there it was an economy ticket."
Pros: "Lovely wide windows!"
Cons: "Surprised at check in with a $60 fee for my one and only checked bag for a 2 week trip. Felt robbed. Seats very close together on flight. Sore knees."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Just wanted a glass of coca cola."
Pros: "The crew was great and made the flight comfortable and easy! They brought drinks as needed, free of charge, movies and headphones were provided, and the flight arrived ahead of schedule in London! A wonderful experience! Would absolutely fly again and was so pleased to find the deal on kayak!!!!"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room despite paying additional fee"
Pros: "Nice staff, very accommodating to the fact that we were late and missing connections. The ground staff in baltimore were communicative and really nice about the delay. The ground staff in london were super on top of it, handing us a new boarding pass as soon as we landed given that we missed our connection."
Cons: "The back of the plane is just SO cramped. Seems humane to take out a seat in that back section. The food was pretty dry. Would have appreciated a bit more explanation of options. I didn't watch any movies - just tried to sleep. We took off three hours late. It's surprising to me that none of the BA staff spoke italian. Would have been helpful for the missed connections as I ended up stumbling through some spanish to help an older italian couple who didn't speak any english. it was surprising how little translation there was!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Check-in did not include my TSA-Pre or airline frequent flyer membership. Food was stale and inedible."
Cons: "First flight cancelled. Customer service hung up first time. Almost 2 hours on hold to reschedule"
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "Seats not good for 5'10" and taller. Leg room cut short by box fixed under seat in front of me"
Pros: "The new Dreamliner made for the smoothest, quietest flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "It was efficient and on time"
Cons: "British air is not what ir used to be. It is no longer high caliber flying. The attendant were not impeccable a it once were. The plane was not grand as o expected. Just average like any other airline"
Cons: "Cramped seating with no leg room and dinner was barely edible."
Cons: "Seat space too cramped"
Pros: "Spacious. Great movies. Funny safety instructions."
Cons: "Arm rests on plane do not raise up all the way. I tried to lay down because the seat next to me was empty but I could not. Person operating the jet bridge took 20 minutes to learn how to operate it. We sat on the tarmac for an extended time"
Pros: "Sitting in exist row with leg room"
Cons: "Seats are small, not enough elbow space. Movie selection was bad."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and friendly, making this 7-hour flight enjoyable."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked."
Pros: "Free wine and drinks with dinner"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for two hours. One hour on the tarmac. Missed the connecting flight to Munich and even though there were two flights BA could have booked us on while in the air they did not. We had to stand in a long queue 1.5 hrs to change our flight to the last one out and arrived at 10pm instead of 2pm. Also, the dreamliner Economy seating is a nightmare. Sardines thats what passengers are to BA. Never again."
Pros: "Safe, comfort, reliable"
Cons: "Food was NOT good at all. Go with theBeef & Potatoes"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable"
Cons: "Headphone jack in seat arm was inoperable . Seats were so cramped a fellow passenger who was taller seated on the aisle was moved."
Pros: "The food was fine, and there was plenty of it. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The crew turned the lights out when we took off, then when everyone was asleep they turned them on and served dinner, at like 10-1030 pm... Way too late to be eating. Then they turned the lights off, then on again for drinks, then off then on again for a breakfast snack, then off then on again for more drinks. Just pick one, on or off please."
Cons: "The British airline flight was operated by american airline and someone who handled her bag stole everything. We purchased prior to the flight. 2 pairs of sneakers a gift spoon for our grandson and other items not mentioned. Then they put her bag on another flight which made her wait for 1.5 hours in Madrid for her bag. Your handlers ruined our trip.How can you allow thieves to do this especially with TSA supposedly there monitoring it? I want a claim form sent to me ASAP so I can recover my goods. A notice was not placed inside, stating it was checked."
Pros: "I like the friendliness of the crew. They were always pleasant and accommodating. The hot meals were good."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped spaces, especially when the person in front of me would put their seat back. It was hard to get in and out if you needed to use the restrooms and to eat with your food on the tray table ."
Pros: "I like everything the service provided by the crew and the airplane"
Cons: "For the second London trip in a row, my return flight to BWI was cancelled. Not weather, not equipment, just cancelled."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was above average, curried chicken dinner was good too!"
Cons: "They lost our suitcase full of outdoor gear (boots, coats, underwear, socks and thermals) days before we head to the inside of the arctic circle on an anniversary trip. Pretty upsetting to say the least"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We learned the connecting flight from BWI TO PHL was canceled when we tried to pull boarding passes.This started a five hour panic for our party of four which was a leisure travel nail biter. We lost a day, flew into JFK and had to make other arrangements to avoid canceling our trip."
Pros: "We were given a snack & drinks. You checked my 2nd bag free which was FABULOUS so I didn't have to deal with gate checking when you asked for us to do that."
Cons: "Was seated in bulkhead & the media screen wouldn't stay facing me. What a pain. Ended up unable to watch it without holding it in place. Seat cushion was very flat & uncomfortable; head rest of poor design did not allow sleep."
Pros: "Overall all was excellent. The only is the sear do not have enough leg room. Particularly if the person in front of you put the seat all the way back. Would prefer a flight from Baltimore to Madrid."
Cons: "Seating was to close"
Cons: "Flight from London to Baltimore attendant stood in the back talking and laughing ignoring my call button. Waited 20 min before someone came so I could get water for my daughter. Flight attendant who responded was very rude."
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was amazing"
Cons: "As soon as i got to the check in window i was informed my flight was delayed and I had planned everything to be on time and since my flight was one hour late it kind messed things up a little bit. It seems that british airlines had a delay on purpose just to have a full flight, i wanted to change seats im a skinny guy and i was seated between TWO BIG people my elbows had to be tucked in all the time"
Cons: "air stewardess was very rude unecessarily"
Pros: "Good food. Beautiful plane. Great stuff. Free beverages of all kinds."
Cons: "There is not enough space to sit. It is insulting to be squeezed into such a small amount of space, particularly on such a long flight."
Pros: "I liked everything! Free drinks, movies on demand on the seat-back screen on the seat in front of you... comfortable seats. I would definitely fly BA again!! (The American Airlines return flight was a bit less desirable in all categories. Comparatively, BA was awesome!)."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "Quiet and peaceful."
Pros: "Nothing in particularly"
Cons: "Disorganised boarding, people standing to find a seat, upgrades being handed out on a whim. Meal service poor."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great"
Cons: "Crew started out way too smarmy. First half hour of flight was nearly continuous, repetitive stream of innocuous announcements. After that, the general mood from the crew was snotty. One male attendant in particular was grouchy and touchy, physically grabbing tables and seats and repositioning the passengers for landing. Another wider attendant seemed to make it a personal vendetta to barrel into anyone who dared extend a shoulder into "her" aisle. During last two hours of flight, the cabin temperature soared into the high 80s (I blame the grouchy attendant), which was made worse because that model of plane didn't have personal air vents."
Pros: "Not much"

The boarding process was smooth and the seat quite comfortable. The snack served was tasty. There could have been better entertainment options available. The crew was quite courteous and friendly.

Pros: "Amazing crew. Spacious and clean aircraft."
Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the flight was really short and comfortable."
Cons: "Update the movies and music on the passengers's TV"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."
Pros: "Crew was attentive, punctual, and third meal on a 14 hour flight is right."
Cons: "Movies are badly dated, and a bit limited in choice. System was a bit difficult to navigate, and slow to respond."
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: "Staff was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The quality of the food. You pay a lot for a ticket, for that pricem, I just don't expect a croissant (no butter or jam included) and a dry cake. Flight would normally leave at 7.30 AM. A normal time for an airline to serve some kind of decent breakfast for the price you pay. Not at KQ. They are not making friends this way. Am not even talking about emails going unanswered for days with very specific questions: how to book extra luggage allowance. Anyway…"
Pros: "Barely functioning entertainment portal. Average food."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and I was offered to move to an empty row but my next seat neighbors moved and I had a row on my own. The food was excellent, not spicy as I like it."
Cons: "As it was a night flight, it would have been better to be offered blanket on the 4 hours night flight."
Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"
Cons: "All is well."
Pros: "The journey from Yaoundé was great. The crew was excellent. Part of food needs improvement. The journey from Nairobi was good and we arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "The flight for on Nairobi, had no entertainment, nowhere to charge cellphones."
Cons: "I am waiting at the airport to catch a flight tonLusaka. This is because I was bumped off my floor flight that I have no seat. Not sure when I will get ion that flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You cancelled my trip without informing me and I need to be rembushed Me transportation to Logan airport and going back for six people and 16 bags please"
Cons: "The food, horrible, I would like to describe but not going to do it. Rather get something at the airport before boarding, no space on the plane enought, the seat distance has been squeeze, I guest to accomodate more sheeps ( not seats) on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "No delay."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Over 5hrs flight and no entertainment as the screens were not working and very boring. Looks like the flight needs real servicing and upgrade for that long haul"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and I didn't know that at time of choosing a seat."
Pros: "Crew was amazing! Elvis smelled good!!!"
Pros: "The timely departure and arrival."
Cons: "The aircraft deployed is old no entertainment facility...you cannot charge your phone."
Cons: "The food could be improved and the movie collection could be updated"
Pros: "The crew on the final leg was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "From Entebbe to Nairobi I was cold during the flight. I wish I had been offered a blanket."
Pros: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Cons: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Cons: "It was really great flying with them"
Cons: "By far the most uncomfortable and crowded plane I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew...they were friendly the whole time. The food was great."
Cons: "The delay was painful. Hope they work out overlays properly to avoid further delays."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable, good food. Good service, friendly boarding crew."
Cons: "My luggage was moved from the overhead compartment to another compartment much further from where I was seated. I was not informed of this and was not aware. I had to wait for all the passengers to leave while the cabin crew searched for the back. This was most unpleasant and stressful."
Pros: "Airline and service"
Cons: "Asked for a window or aisle seat and wasnt given"
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Kenya Airways on my recent round trip from Kigali to New York to visit family for Christmas. Due to a delay on my connecting flight from Kigali to Nairobi, I missed my flight to JFK and had to stay in Kenya for a full day, shortening my already brief trip. I do not know what caused this delay other than Kenya Airways staff having seemingly no urgency to get us off the ground. On my return flight to Kigali a delay attributed to “operations” increased my layover from 8 hours to 12 hours. On top of the scheduled delay we were delayed an additional hour because boarding did not begin when it should have. I was also less than impressed with the movie selection on the plane. I will not be flying with Kenya Airways again and now understand why they were the cheapest option!"
Pros: "Enjoyed this flight; smooth and no problems."
Cons: "The flight was small, so they didn't have a large entertainment selection."
Pros: "Service was good and flight was smooth"
Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"
Cons: "Nothing"
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"
Pros: "Great job by entire crew"
Cons: "outdated uncomfortable seats, no cell phone charging available which is needed for international travel. This must be fixed asap."
Cons: "Entertainment system plays very old films Stop over 5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. The gate changed at least four times with no clear announcement."
Pros: "They wheelchaired my companion to the airport after delayed medical examination to make the flight."
Cons: "Kenya changed my flight to two hours later 18 hours before I was to leave. Making me have a 10 minute connection. Then after an hour in a airline office they promised to hold my connection. When my flight landed on time, they did not hold my connection. So they changed my flight and didn’t follow through on the fix. We would now miss wedding activities and business meetings. Then my partner got sick and they refused to taxi us to hotel for the night but take a bus that leaves every three hours. Her sickness got worse and there was a Kenyan airlines doctor who evaluated her at the airport after waiting 40 minutes laying at check in with her crying due to pain. We had a medical release from the doctor saying she needed extra space to lay down but the check in manager refused to make room for her saying the flight is full and she would not upgrade her to accommodate the medical release because we had an economy ticket. My partner looked so bad that the flight crew considered kicking us off but eventually made the space for her to lay down and were helpful on the flight. This is this disgraceful and the worst experience I’ve had with any company."
Pros: "Once on the flight the flight crew were caring and accomodating."
Cons: "Kenya changed my flight to two hours later 18 hours before I was to leave. Making me have a 10 minute connection. Then after an hour in a airline office they promised to hold my connection. When my flight landed on time, they did not hold my connection. So they changed my flight and didn’t follow through on the fix. We would now miss wedding activities and business meetings.

My partner looked so bad that the flight crew considered kicking us off but eventually made the space for her to lay down and were helpful on the flight. This is this disgraceful and the worst experience I’ve had with any company."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Broken, dirty toilet on board. No control of how much hand luggage bought on board. Broken seats. Dirty."
Pros: "They no take care of my bag"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Price, hard seats, food"
Pros: "Overall it was fine. However there were some downsides..."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't make it. Also, the plane left late for some reason. We weren't sure why they didn't start letting us board sooner. Finally, the airport in Nairobi is dangerous when early morning planes arrive. Arriving passengers who are in transit are ushered down an escalator where they are pushed into one another because of a security line backup...yet the escalator just keeps bringing more people. This happened to us in Nairobi in the early morning of July 26 and again in the early morning of August 2. I feared someone would be trampled or hurt."
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: "The crew were nice. And the plane got me to London"
Cons: "As with the outbound flight the my screen didn't work. Seats were not particularly comfortable. Food was tolerable. Bag was not transferred from my Arusha flight but I guess that is not Kenya Airways fault."
Pros: "The arrival to Monrovia."
Cons: "Losing baggage for a week."
Cons: "Flight cancelled streessed up"
Pros: "I liked the food and actual service on the flight"
Cons: "The airport staff sucked!! VERY RUDE! Acted annoyed when I asked how long the flight delay was or for directions to the next gate. I know I am an American and used to different services. When a foreigner asks me for guidance, I go out of my way to help. When out of your element, rude staff just add to the stress of being delayed! I hate Kenya Airport staff!!!"
