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

Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"

Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."
Cons: "Helper was literally dragging two whelchairs at a one time. Means two passengers sitting on two different whelchair was pulled by one helper. I actually want to share video with airline so they will understand what they are promissing and what they are providing to their customers."

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: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."

Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Pros: "Punctual on Time. Clean Cabin. Nice Crew"

Cons: "The washrooms are to few for the people on the flight. We were always queuing as the toilets were always occupied"

Pros: "Felt at home"
Cons: "Late take off"
Cons: "Sat next to a man who smelled terribly like alcohol. He then ordered and was served a small bottle of wine... I'm not sure he should have been allowed to board or served more alcohol. He was not causing any disturbance, mostly slept, but smelled awful I had to turn my head the other way and would have liked to move seats."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Cons: "My baggage was ripped and the material inside was damaged. Never expected that from Emirates."

Cons: "You expect more from business class"
Cons: "Sehar for Ramadhan may be improved as we have no other option and neither time to do it outside plane"
Pros: "Crew was cordial"
Cons: "Check-in - it took 2 hrs to check our bags"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "Literally didn’t like anything from boarding to touchdown"
Cons: "Nicer more helpful crew. More leg space. More air temperature control abs cleaner bathrooms"

Cons: "Food served during dinner"
Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "We lost an iPad on the plane and I called and filled a o several times it absolutely no response. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The entertainment was too limited"
Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"
Pros: "First the flight was delayed for 30minutes. And I wanted to watch a movie but the earphone socket in my seat 22A is not working at all. I just have to watch the flight map. The FAs are busy and sounds tired. THe flight is full but I wish I was moved since my ticket was eligible for an upgrade. I seldom complain but they need to check thru the seats -22A"
Cons: "The smell inside the plane glad I have some sweet perfume spray."
Cons: "There was a airplane change that delayed the flight by 4 hours. No compensation was offered. Entertainment volume was too low even at max level"

Pros: "great plane, comfort, crew"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "was easy to find connecting flight info."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"
Cons: "Please, please, please Etihad, implement child-free zones on your flights."
Pros: "They had to delay the flight for those who were arriving from Durban because of the delayed flight."
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Pros: "You can’t beat the quality of service, seating, and other amenities you arrive fresh even after a 14 hour flight"
Cons: "The variety of movies is not that great needs to be improved some series have only one episode which defeats the purpose. While others have more so you cannot watch anything really with series."
Pros: "The staff is great, friendly and attentive. Lounge is comfortable, with good staff as well."
Cons: "I must admit that the food choices is not great. You are catering to international crowd not only emaratis. In general the planes are good, but the smaller older ones are not that comfortable. The older 777 configuration is very uncomfortable, comparing to the 787. When you need to slitly recline, there is no need for the whole chair to come forward in attempt to creat a bed for you. These are little things that need to be addressed when purchasing planes."

Pros: "Nothing because I wasn’t able to make the flight service."
Cons: "Have customer service respond in a timely manner. I know you can’t control other agency have been trying 4 days prior to flight schedule to cancel due to positive Covid-19 results and still no response so don’t know if I will lose my ticket price if so won’t deal with you again"
Pros: "Toilets were clean right up until landing"
Cons: "When breakfast was served, there was only the option of poached eggs. We asked if there was an alternative and Philip said No. Shortly after starting our cold poached eggs Philip brought the people across the aisle to us a sausage alternative?! All the flight attendants looked unhappy until getting off the plane. Entertainment was very basic and not really up to date."
Cons: "Didn’t like anything"
Cons: "KQ is always late! And never provide information to passengers about the delay"
Pros: "I liked when there was turbulent, the pilot told us that we should be calm as the plan was going to experience turbulent in a few moment"
Cons: "I felt like the queen cake had a lot of sugar, think of those who do not eat sugar"

Pros: "Everything went well as scheduled"
Pros: "The plane is nice with wonderful amenities. The flight was on time even though departure was 1 hour late. The price is great."
Cons: "The staff did not care. They caused many of the delays, exasperated many customers, and slept during the flight instead of tending to the needs of passengers. If you're prepared to take care of yourself, the price and speed may be too hard to pass."
Cons: "Old planes and little entertainment"
Cons: "Headphones did not work"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "No complains means i LOVED everything. From start to finish."
Cons: "No complains on this flight."
Pros: "NOTHING. I am NEVER flying Kenya Airways again."
Cons: "Just a horrible experience from start to finish. My flight was delayed three times, then canceled, rescheduled, and delayed two more times. I was reissued three different boarding passes for my connecting flight from Mumbai and then STILL missed it and had to reschedule again from that airport. One of the most stressful travel experiences of my life."
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."

Cons: "Food which was the same as previous flight. We, at back, were told there was only the vegetarian option left for breakfast. We all declined. Later we were brought non-vegetarian food ie had a 'poached egg' on it. This was marginally better. Also, I couldn't use 'entertainment' as connection in arm rest bad. Occasionally, on testing, it worked briefly."
Pros: "CORDIAL HOSTESS AND NICE BREAKFAST"
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"
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: "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: "Having just got off the dreamliner, I may be somewhat biased... apologies"
Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work in our seats. Staff were quite rude when asking for a third beer and refused to allow any more. In eight hours, that’s the first time I have experienced this on any airline. I am a frequent flyer with Qatar and ba and have flown long haul on most airlines. My two colleagues also had the same treatment and they turned there nose up at my Indian wife. Very dissapointed and I will be writing a complaint in person to the airline."
Pros: "Staff is good"
Pros: "Staff behaviour is good."
Cons: "The takeoff is always delayed. Food quality is substandard."
Pros: "Pricing seating and foid"
Cons: "3.20pm flight took off at 10.20pm. Sure, the issues were due to bad weather that affected all airlines at Goa airport, but the other airlines recovered as soon as the airport was reopened around 6.30pm. Air India didn’t have a plane show up till 9pm. They even allowed the 6.40pm flight take off before the 3.20pm flight. No announcements letting passengers know what the deal was except telling us that there was a delay. I had to use apps to get the information I needed."

Cons: "Entrainment on way back was problematic. No information on final departure time after delay going out"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disprganized"
Cons: "The flight was at first delayed by 3 hours because of a technical issue. At first they delayed us by an hour an a half, and added another hour and a half delay to it after the 1st slot. The delays were announced at the last moment. Then Air India sends us for dinner, and while most people are at the restaurant, they announce at the gate that the flight has been cancelled. The few of us who were waiting at the gate were told to head to the transfer desk where alternate arrangements would be made. The Air India staff gave us no information on what these alternatives were or what options we had. The transfer desk is operated by SQ. We passengers had to break the news of the cancellation to the staff at the desk . They had not received any intimation or direction from Air India yet and were unable to help us. SQ called Air India out of their own initiative to get the ball moving on how to assist us. Still we had to queue up and wait for 20 minutes before Air India called SQ and gave some authorisation. There would be only 60 seats offered on the SQ flight the next morning on a 1st come 1st serve basis! What about the rest ? What if I wanted a refund ? No answers. Take it or leave it ! There was no AI staff to assist or even speak to. Much later the people who were delayed at dinner and never made it onto the SQ flight were given the option of flying 25 hrs later by another AI flight. While technical problems happen , what disappointed me was the lack of communication. No reasons, no proper alerts. Nothing at all from AI."
