Food was not good.

Wonderful time. Everything we enjoy. No complaints. Thanks.

A long haul flight needs roomy and comfortable seats.

Smart and friendly staff

Nice flight

BR sink is not properly draining! Oh my! Water is still in the sink from previous passenger.. gross!!!! No toilet seat paper. Too much trash everywhere.. aisle, tray is taking forever to pick up. Movies are too old- most of them. You should have movies for the past 5yrs only. Mix your food of western and middle east. Food that was served is too much for some passengers who are not so familiar with. Too spicy/smelly for me. One meal of this is enough for me… not the whole flight meals. Crews are so helpful and friendly! They are the best throughout my flight/travel experience. Good job!!! Please prioritize how keep your bathrooms clean! Thank you!

The luggage wasn't handled properly. My checked in luggage was damaged badly.

Not sure why everyone has to go through literally 7 different security check points (not Qatars fault) but besides that, everything went very smooth.

Qatar airways Customer service was terrible especially in Baghdad office! They were very unprofessional, helpless and very rude!

More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing

More variety in the entertainment - for instance more competitive sports -soccer, basketball, etc

For 13 hour flight seats were slightly uncomfortable, not much room. Otherwise, everything else was excellent, food, cervice, entertainment, very pleasant.

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Longer wifi time and faster connection"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment, vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Bit more comfortable seat"
Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."
Cons: "Handling flight delay"
Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Need to improve wheel chair service at Doha."
Pros: "Plenty of beverage service and food was very good."
Cons: "The other passengers were often rude and uncivilized. I guess Qatar couldn’t do anything about this."
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"
Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"
Pros: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "everything was decent"
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seats had enough legroom. Good was second to none"
Pros: "Yes, crews and comfort were amazing."
Pros: "Good check-in experience."
Cons: "Entertainment Systems are old, low-resolution and difficult to view & operate compared to, say, A380 aircraft. Some did not work. Seats were cramped. One recliner was broken. Cabin crew smiled less. African legs should not have lower quality of equipment and service than other legs."
Cons: "Delayed my luggage. Still waiting for Emirates to call me after 2 days"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Professional flight attendants."
Cons: "Inconsistency in packing policies. My sister And I each had a curtain to bring back. I was told that it had to be boxed and wrapped and she wasn’t. Also there were issues with baggage claim at IAD. I took about 45 minutes for the bags to come out."
Pros: "Efficient and very friendly cabin staff. Captain and team kept us informed of flight progression at reasonable intervals."
Cons: "Some slight delay in clearing up some catering equipment."
Pros: "The service and movie selection during the flight."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with pillows, blanket and good foods"
Cons: "The thing which was not good was the service. I would say that service should be done fairly not to see the people background so I asked for something but the crew did bring that. I would suggest to work on this portion. Thanks"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Everything was very nice"
Pros: "I have never been in a flight where a handful of small children were able to make so much noise. There was one 4 year old that talked so loud for ten hours that not even my headphones could drown him out. Not once did any of the parents tell these kids to use their inside voice"
Pros: "Impressive in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The pay to use Wi-Fi was very slow, not worth using."
Cons: "Food was the worst, service extremely poor"
Pros: "Just a fantastic crew, great airplane the Air Bus much more comfortable than the 777 .."
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. I will fly emirates again."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Cons: "They missed me for breakfast despite my being awake and trying to get their attention. Then they ran out of one of the choices for both dinner and breakfast. This despite the plane being less than capacity. Also there were so many empty seats in the back but I noticed that some people were still being packed in like the flight was full. Emirates should do a better job of assigning seats to make as many people comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Nice wide seats"
Cons: "some of the flight attendants were nice and others were openly irritated by the passengers"
Pros: "We are arived safe"
Cons: "The attitude of the crew it was very good and the comportment very nice"
Pros: "The flight updates, services (meals and refreshments)"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The online site didn't let us allocate seats even before 48 hours of schedule flight timings. Complimentary seats were allocated badly. Even when contacted with airline staff they didn't pass on the right information. We found on airport counter that exists seats opened before opening the airline counter at the airports whereas we are told that it would be allocated at the airport counter only. Misleaded at Dubai by airline staff that airport counter would open 3 hours before flight departure whereas we found and told at counter it was opened 48 hours before flight departure. Faced lots of inconvenience in allocation of complimentary seats. I speak with other co-passengers in the flight and found single complimentary aisle seats were allocared to passengers. They same opportunity was not extend to others having more than 1 seats in the flight."
Pros: "Best"
Cons: "Best"
Pros: "So, as mentioned, this was our first time flying Emirates and from our flights from Maryland to Dubai to Philippines has been pleasant, the only issue we've had was with the security process and an incident that my wife encountered in Dubai when we were in the process of boarding to go to Washington Dulles. We landed in Dubai and we were in transit to our connecting flight. We went to our assigned gate and had to check in with security prior to waiting in our gate or boarding the plane. We checked in our electronic devices and my wife was asked to be checked. There wasn't anything wrong up until that moment. My wife cooperated with all the requests of the security agent. They asked her to go inside a security room/enclosed area and the first thing that the security agent asked my wife was why she wasn't wearing her wedding band. It was obvious that she was married because she had a tan line of the marks of wearing a ring. It was her travel ring and she removed it because it was too tight and she explained that to the agent. The agent then made the comment "so you got fat on this trip?". My wife was confused on what she said and asked her "what did you say?". The agent then repeated ..."So you're fat... that's why the wedding ring doesn't fit?" My wife was furious but maintained her cool because she didn't want to give a reason for her to be held from getting on the flight. I didn't see the situation take place and I don't know if there was anything that triggered her comment. My wife felt humiliated. I don't know the agent's name but I wanted to address the incident. Our experience with Emirates has been very pleasant but having to feel helpless after someone with authority to make that comment was humiliating and ruined the rest of her time on the flight as well as mine."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "awosam"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Cons: "They changed our seats to 46F 58F and 88B. We already get boarding pass for connecting flight but they did changed them because of flight delayed from Bangkok. It was unfair. They should hold reserved seats for us since they knew that the first flight would arrive on time."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is very good."
Cons: "For in-flight service call to flight attendant, it took 30 mins for response, and in the meantime two attendants walked by and waved me off. The next time I asked an attendant for water, he said sure he would get it, but he never showed up. Their water & juice service is not adequate for long-haul flights. Dubai has poor air quality, which might be bothersome for a long layover."
Pros: "Online checking"
Cons: "N/ A"
Pros: "The great customer service once on board was outstanding... great amenities and prompt return of requests..."
Cons: "The Airline Denied my WhiteWater Kayak then Allowed 12 hours later 2 Kayaks of equal proportions. My whole trip was focused on having this kayak.. it forced our trip into confined abilities and completely took away from my overall experience in Africa... I want a free flight with a boat.. I can give you flight details of my last flight takken .. What do you say..?"
Pros: "380's are superb"
Cons: "Flights returning to US have an expectation of poorer service. No amenities like the out-going flights (sleep mask, socks, toothbrush, etc)"
Pros: "We liked the selection of movies. The stewards were extremely helpful and kind."
Pros: "check-in process was efficient"
Cons: "food should be better quality"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "The overall experience and lack of response to rectify missed connecting flights, damaged luggage and overall bad customer service for an airline that wants to advertise its pride and attention to service. Much can be improved."
Pros: "The courteous and friendly on-board service, spacious seating and clean men's rooms were the best part of the journey. The smiling stewardess were outstanding in creating a happy environment. I will consider Emirates for my future travels."
Cons: "Coffee was ok but could be better."
Pros: "Foods and electronic entertainment"
Cons: "The male flight attendant accidently hit my head without apologize while I was bending down to tight my shoes."
Pros: "Crew are awesome, helpful"
Cons: "Emirates pizza is not good."
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
Pros: "Great service during flight. It did not feel like it was over 14 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was a problem because there was computer system error. Some folks could board while others couldn't. Staff should have been more vocal in explaining the issue and should have organized the customers better while we waited to board the plane."
Pros: "comfortable and new airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude with a very bad attitude and not friendly."
Cons: "The technical problem with flight from Dubai to Dulles could have been resolved before boarding the flight. Crew could have been more clear on how much longer it would take to resolve the problem before and not after boarding the flight."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.

The boarding crew was rude, everything was disorganized with lack of information.

Delay information

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."

Work on entertainment systems and seat comfort. Seats are very old and worn out. Entertainment systems not working,

Food

Pros: "This was our first time experience and we appreciated the dedication and the level of safety the crew administered, especially during this time of Covid 19. Thanks"
Cons: "Just keep up the good work."
Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."
Pros: "Flight Crew were great"
Cons: "The baggage and checking in process. Better training did on the checking in crew for international flight baggage, one one person knew what the requirements are."
Pros: "Your crew were great."
Pros: "The crew practically ignored my request for medical aid. They were not friendly and super occupied. The seats were too uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food could have been better and the crew attention and assistance to the passengers."
Cons: "1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board. Flight from Lusaka to Addis was excellent. But nothing to Nairobi"
Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Ease to select seats on line The flight was a little delayed but they got me to my connecting flight on time at Addis Ababa. Good on board service"
Cons: "2 separate incidents. One, a fight between passengers at ththe check in desk that spilled over before staff could resolve incident. Then at security, after immigration, no cues. Minimal staff overseeing the process. No organization. Early"
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "The crew on the ground could be more friendly and could improve their communication. Improvement needed on the food."
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: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."
Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, good fleet in general"
Cons: "Shabby interior, boarding at Bole. Bole airport needs drastic expansion."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Like the online check in and quick bag drop at the aiport"
Cons: "Food could have been much better with less processed foods"
Pros: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."
Pros: "Plenty of meal service quick boarding process"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Bad plane flight was cancelled. Horrible experience."
Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Pros: "Sleeping most of the way"
Pros: "1) On time"
Cons: "1) Food from Lusaka to Lilongwe was poor. Just sandwithes and drinks 2) Small bumpy, noisy plane from Lusaka to Lilongwe 3) No entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I had to call them every day to locate it. It took a whole week for me to have my luggage back while it was sitting in the Philadelphia Airport for 4 days waiting to be delivered to my house. On top of that no one seems to know the whereabouts of my luggage. Bad customer service. Be aware when flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay for departure!"
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: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "Friendly team."
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"
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."
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
Pros: "The movie and music collection was good."
Cons: "The awaiting time to get the boarding pass to long."
Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."
Cons: "same flight crew"
Cons: "boarding announcements difficult to understand toilets not kept clean - not enough for size of plane stewards just OK - understaffed for a full 787 food mediocre - definitely better on other carriers to Africa spent 21 hrs in one plane from JRO to IAD in part caused by a 5 hr mechanical repair in Dublin pilot lead us to believe repair would be quick but it wasn't overall my worst international flight out of several dozen I will not fly Ethiopian Air again"
Pros: "this part of the flight was not a pleasant one. the crew kept passing me over no matter how much I called. but they seemed more attentive to their native people (Ethiopian) because they spoke the same language. this was frustrating, the entertainment did not work for the entire flight, thank God I had my Bible to read...."
Pros: "Food was adequate and good."
Cons: "Seats in both flight weren't adjustable."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "The food portions were disappointing."
Pros: "By far the best food I have ever had in a flight. And I am still trying to figure out how we landed without and no one noticed. Every one on the flight were amazed that we didn’t feel a thing upon landing. The crew were so friendly and accommodating, it was unreal."
Cons: "Perhaps advertise more to Europeans as this airline is up there with the best of them."
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."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and spacious leg room."
Cons: "Good ride and smooth landing."
Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"
Pros: "The plane is quite comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and keeping time."
Cons: "The breakfast was a donut and roll so no protein or healthy option."
Cons: "Late departure led to missed connections, but Kenya Airways did not provide much assistance with this. No-one on hand to upon disembarkation to help affected passengers. I just managed to get my onward flight, but my baggage did not make it, so I am awaiting that."
Pros: "nothing always delay on schedule and angry to them as i didn't receive all my parcel on arrival"
Cons: "KQ needs to review everything and being better like 4 years ago, it was really the proud of Africa"
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"
Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food too dry"
Pros: "Very quick, smooth flight"
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: "All good"
Pros: "The planes are clean, the attendants friendly but formal."
Cons: "The food selections was basic - the entertainment selection was mediocre"
Pros: "Boarding was on time. The flight attendant’s response to my call and request for a blanket...first she smiled as if my request was ridiculous but still went ahead to get me the blanket and we joked about it cause the cabin was getting too cold for me and if she hadn’t given me a blanket I would have caught a cold!"
Cons: "Delay to take off, and spaying of the cabin with insecticide when passengers have boarded!"
Pros: "I like that the trip had no stops and the food was ok."
Cons: "The check-in counter did not have a credit card machine for me to pay my extra bag fee. This made things very inconvenient for me because I didn't have cash. I had to leave the airport to find a place with wifi because I didn't have service and the airport doesn't have WiFi. I had to contact a family back home in the US to wire me money. The money never came thru and I had to make a cash advance with my credit card which resulted in me having to pay fees. The entire process almost caused me to miss my flight and the lady at the check-in counter tried to keep my change. After wasting all the time getting the money to pay for the extra bag fee the staff were rushing me to get to the plane and threatening me I would be left behind even though it's not my fault I'm running late. I was not happy with my experience."
Pros: "The easy and comfortable element of the flight."
Cons: "I didn’t really hear any boarding announcements, it would of been to be told we would be debording the plane by steps in the rain"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "At one time the flight got too cold"
Pros: "On board movie selection is good, however could be a bit larger."
Pros: "the service was outstanding.The crew were very jolly and friendly and were very helpful all the time, well trained crew ,...excellent job KQ crew and Kenya Airways"
Pros: "KQ usually has great service. Sometimes this flight is delayed, but this time it was on time, not full, and the plane was very tidy."
Pros: "The flight attendants were the best! I fly a lot every year, but I found the flight attendants among the best I have ever had. In addition, the flight was early in arrival! I love Kenya Airways!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "There was no food for vegetarian."
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Left late. Boarding experience was stressful and confusing."
Pros: "This company obviously trains its employees to belittle and disregard customers. I have never dealt with a company so at fault for an issue and so utterly unwilling to make up for it. First, they cancel the first of our 3 flights to Delhi 18 hrs before it is to leave. The flight they replaced it with would leave us 10 min to make the connection. So we went to the counter and they told us they'd hold the plane, as did the stewardess on the flight. They lied. The plane left 10 min before we landed. We were stranded. Also, I got food poisoning from their food. They did nothing to help. They would not pay for the hotel we wanted, when we asked they rudely served everyone else they stranded first. The employee would not call his supervisor or give his name. The next morning i saw a doctor but the stomache infection was so bad i couldn't sit up or walk. The doctor wrote this on my clearance to fly document. I needed to get to India to get better medical help. We presented this to the kenya airlines agent and she would do nothing to help. She had business class reclining seats available but would not upgrade me. Even after everything this shitty airline has caused. Unbelievable. Every step along the way of this nightmare could have been made better, so much better, by some human decency but instead we got rude disregard."
Cons: "The flight to Nairobi was so late that I missed my connection and have to wait about 10 hours for the next flight out."
Pros: "The plane was pretty comfortable, they gave us blankets and pillows even though it was only a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "They served "breakfast" halfway through which was two tiny servings of meat and a piece of chocolate cake. Not much food and not really what I wanted to eat in the middle of the night! Boarding was completely chaotic, some screens said the flight was delayed, others said it was on time (it was delayed). When we arrived in Nairobi they hardly apologized for the delay, and also insisted on sending a bus to come pick us up from the plane because it was raining, which took forever. Missed my connection by about 5 minutes and had to wait almost 10 hours for the next one."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Timing & touch downs. Good flying."
Cons: "Food & drink. Little choice, poor taste."
Pros: "We were connecting on a delta flight. The agent offered to connect our bags all the way through. We checked with delta. The bags were there but if we didn't ask about them I'm not sure they would have made it."
Cons: "hospitality"
Pros: "The flight arrived early to Bangkok"
Cons: "The plane was old. Some seats didn't recline. My husband's sound system didn't work. The audio selection was minimal. The bathroom started out filthy with urine everywhere, and stayed that way. These things are inconvenient on a 10 hour flight!"
Pros: "It was fine."
Pros: "My bags arrived gate agent efficient"
Cons: "The fact there was no such reservation for me from Lusaka to Nairobi"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."
Cons: "With the exception of one male flight attendant who was friendly and professional, the Kenya airways flight attendants were surly, invompetent and unprofessional. One yelled at us for asking if we could get a vegetarian meal (on the advice of another Kenya airways flight attendant). Another only bothered to give water to the first 2/3 of the plane and then for some unknown reason simply stopped passing out water. All three of the Kenya airways fights were late but no one said so or why. I would avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "The flight was delayed in leaving but the Captain didn't say anything until we were about to land. The overnight flight was pleasant but the food was pretty mediocre."
Cons: "Crew were pretty good and the Dreamliner is an excellent aircraft, particularly in business class."
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."
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "Food was terrible throughout Seat was tight"
Cons: "The flight was 5 hours late, we were not informed while waiting or why it was late. It was very frustrating, especially that Nairobi airport has no free wifi. Kenya Airways is not to the standards of other Sky Team companies."
