Cons: "don't know of anything"

Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

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."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

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

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."

Pros: "Crew"

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: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

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: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."

Pros: "Excellent aiways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "The crew never answer the calls when we call"

Cons: "-Seat comfort - stingy with morning coffee -terrible departing plane"

Pros: "The timing of the flight and available entertainment"
Cons: "For economy class, maybe more variety to meals?"

Pros: "Keeping time"
Cons: "There should be wi=fi."

Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."

Cons: "Thx crew seemed s little slow (almost 2 hours) with getting us dinner for a very late night flight (10:45 pm). It just makes for not very much time to sleep."

Cons: "All well"

Pros: "Business class makes the entire trip much more comfortable."
Cons: "no negatives"

Cons: "I asked for water three times, three different crew members but never got the water during the flight to Dubai, when alighting that's when i asked for the water again from a crew who was manning the business class section and got it."

Pros: "Comfort and friendly crew and the food was very delicious and not forgetting the entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"

Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"

Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."

Cons: "poor service"

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated entertainment"

Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"

Pros: "I liked that there was live TV available on this flight."
Cons: "I don’t like that there is not and ovo-lacto vegetarian option available to people like me."

Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"

Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"

Pros: "seating availability Food service"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable, food excellent, and entertainment system fantastic."
Cons: "A 7kg maximum carry on weight is super low."

Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "There was no leg room at all in economy. My knees were in the seat of the person in front of me. Most of the food was terrible and I only ate the bread. The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat."

Pros: "The attention to my two nine year old kids. They enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The washrooms are to few for the people on the flight. We were always queuing as the toilets were always occupied"

Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food, food and food"

Pros: "Traveling internationally is grueling, but Emirates business made the trip easy. After my Nairobi to Washington DC flight, I was able to have a productive day instead of sleeping the first full day upon arrival like normal."

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: "• Food was good •The flight was comfortable and I felt saved •The crew was very nice •The flight was cheap compared with service •The entertainment was excelent but you need to add more songs from Africa ."

Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."

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."

Pros: "The crew, overall were very alloof and disengaged. Rarely did we hear "your welcome" after saying thank you. We were made to feel as if we were interrupting their real work."
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that how consumers feel is almost as important as price. There are other choices that for air travel. It's costs nothing to smile, or to say your welcome."

Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."

Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"

Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."

Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."

Pros: "The Crew were wonderful and tried in every way to make us comfortable."

Cons: "The crew wasn't very responsive"

Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."

Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"

Pros: "I flew from Nairobi to Dubai and then to New York. Very pleasant crew, beautiful plane inside and out, excellent food in the plane. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also the Airbus 380 is just superb. Such a big bird that one."
Cons: "I am personally opposed to entertainment. I see it as the devil and the world's substitute for true joy that is only found in God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. So it is sad for me to see all the entertainment centered culture. It shows itself very much in the plane. Everyone with a screen infront of them to keep them entertained. Headphones to cut you off from the fellow next to you. Some very rotten movies on there too."

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: "The two check in bags rule."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"

Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"

Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"

Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."

Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."

Cons: "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: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"

Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."

Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"

Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"

Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."

Pros: "The aircraft was nice, clean and seemed new. The staff was very professional, immaculate uniforms and appearance. Great attention to detail. We traveled from US - Nairobi - Kigali - Johannesburg, changing planes four times. These were some of the nicest planes. I felt very safe traveling this airline."
Cons: "Too much bread in the meals. The meals were adequate in quantity but each meal came with two rolls, which was excessive. Just a note - for the boarding area in the airport. Please have restroom facilities in boarding area, past security so you can use the restroom without having to go through security again. Also, if food and beverage is available for sale in the boarding area more passengers would make purchases."

Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"

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: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."

Pros: "Was good on time"

Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."

Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."

Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"

Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement"

Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"

Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"

Pros: "Staff courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Some choices on menu do not do well by time of serving ie fish"

Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."

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: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"

Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"

Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"

Pros: "Food was beef brochettes, one of the best economy meals I have had. Wine was very good, from South Africa."
Cons: "Seats were not adjustable. It may be that I was in front of the exit row, but I looked and didn't see anyone leaning back anywhere. On the other hand, flight was only 1 hr 20 minutes."

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: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"

Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"

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"

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: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."

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: "Service! Smooth ride and good food!"

Pros: "the only one thing I loved about the flight was it being DIRECT from Mombasa to Kigali. I didn't have to pass through Nairobi."
Cons: "Don't expect a lot in Africa. The service wasn't that bad, but it needs a lot of improvement. Partyly because Rwandair's planes are small (Boeing 737-200) there was a lot of turbulence during the flight... A lot to learn from Kenyan and Ethiopian!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, arrived on good time"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no headphones for music"

"It was so hot. No pillows were available and when asked for a blanket instead there were no blankets available as well"

Pros: "Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one."
Cons: "Food could have been of fish kind variety and hot drinks weren't available. No hot drinks, neither coffee, nor tea."

Cons: "They won’t allow me to fly"

Pros: "nothing is good"
Cons: "the food and bathrooms"

Pros: "I was a nice flight"
Cons: "If was more internment would be better"

Pros: "Actually everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great. Staff of ground services for last security hand bags and passengers checks, documents final checks and all were with great flow, smiles and so professional. Hospitality from cabin crew, cleanliness, food portions and taste were great. Comfortable seats and elite shading side windows. Everything was sooo great. This really escalades recommendations for EgyptAir"
Cons: "The heavy touch down upon landing, could have been a little bit smoother. That was not a big deal at all."

Cons: "Everything was ok and no delays"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight and the crew were nice."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Plus a glass of wine/beer either sold or complementary wouldn’t hurt"

Pros: "The captain"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Timing"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, but the sit was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Since it's along trip the sits should be adjustable not to be straight throughout to avoid back pain"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"

Cons: "Layover time too short so a small flight delay resulted in a missed connection. No entertainment system on board, seats very small, food bad and disembarking was very slow."

Cons: "Leg space was tiny. Uncomfortable seat."

Cons: "Very nice trip"

Pros: "The plane dream liner"

Cons: "Nwver on time"

Pros: "Almost perfect"
Cons: "They didn't give me a travel kit."

Cons: "I chipped my tooth eating your food and no one could help me except to say sorry"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. Food was very good as well as the selection of non-alcoholic beverages. Flight was on time, and plane was clean!"
Cons: "Passenger seating next to me (I was sitting in an aisle on a 3-seat row, economy plus) kept on leaning towards me all the time. I had to "create" of sort of barrier between the two of us with a couple of pillows. A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating. I had to forcefully push back ti get some room."

Cons: "When I asked the flight attendant for an extra snack, he proceeded to tell me he had none left when I could look directly into the tray and see that there was more than enough. After calling him out on this, he complied."

Pros: "Appreciate the hot breakfast that was served."
Cons: "Boarding process can be improved."

Pros: "Helpful friendly crew."
Cons: "Planes a bit old and cramped, but otherwise comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was gentle and courteous."
Cons: "I choose to see only positive things."

Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."

Pros: "They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot."

Pros: "I end up upgrading my seats from economy to business class and made a very decision given the length of flight. Service was excellent and food was alright. The best thing were the seats as my whole family got to sleep 5 - 6 hours."

Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."

Cons: "Second time in as many weeks our egyptair flight was delayed for hours causing us to miss connections. No info or help from ground staff. Horrible airline."

Pros: "Everything went fine. They had many agent helping with the boarding were considering about the luggage. The pilot was clever in landing"
Cons: "People standing before the plane stops"

Cons: "Although the flight attendants were nice, I felt they should have gone through the cabin more often offering water or other beverages since this was such a long flight,"

Cons: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Change the food which was tasteless and was only bread."

Pros: "Excellent service and ontime takeoff"

Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working , toilet not enough only 2 at the end of plane"

Pros: "Positive and helpful crew. A few new movies recently released kept me entertained."
Cons: "The food was not catered to my taste buds it was strictly Arabic cuisine. The software that shows the realtime flight map looked very outdated and complicated to use. No blinds or earbuds given for sleep. Not enough food given for long flight"

Cons: "Delay more than 3 hours"

Pros: "Overall crew is polite and nice."
Cons: "Ground staff needs some training in assuring privacy of customer, during my whole checkin process a gentleman who is another customer stand next to me."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1,5 hrs"

Cons: "The airport in Jeddah was overcrowded, dirty, chaotic and the men’s room was not clean and was stinky"

Pros: "Arrived in one piece."
Cons: "Dirty plane outside. No in flight entertainment. Saudi flights always delayed in my experience so boarding at takeof time. Crew did nothing above minimum. Jeddah airport old."

Pros: "The Saudi planes are relatively new and quiet. The seat pitch in coach is acceptable as there were plenty of empty seats on the flight. They offered free connection for texting apps which is nice to have. The entertainment selection was broad enough, but I did not use."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 3 hours without a good explanation. Saying a flight is late because of a late incoming flight is a circular argument - we're late because we're late."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Terrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food, airplane age, they boarded us and then kept us inside airplane for 45 mins because of bad weather at destination airport. They should confirm flight info before boarding."

Cons: "Departed at 1310 o e hour late and all that time insid the plane"

Cons: "Taking the bus to board the plane is not convenient"

Pros: "Everything!!"
Cons: "None..."

Cons: "The Jeddah team was so awful, rude, and also not helpful"

Pros: "Nothing but the food & the timing."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, uncleaned, bad smell, over priced for an economy class and a small narrowness plane and shortness flight. Hope it is improved next time for others; however, I won’t utilize this airlines in fact it is my country’s airlines."

Pros: "movies food service"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Over all. ...nice and good"

Cons: "There are no variety in the food menu."

Pros: "Nothing. I would never fly Saudia again and will tell my friends and family not go via saudia. This is my worst airline experience ever. Choosing saudia was a worst decision."
Cons: "The food was bad. The FA did not meet service expectations. You left all my luggages in Jeddah and when i asked help you promise to deliver it to my home before 12midnight. I am so tired and sleepy but i waited until 11pm cz i need my stuff and i have very important medicines there that i need to take tonight. When i called to check the location of my delivery, the driver just plainly said he will deliver tomorrow. I found this very unprofessional and no care about their customers. You gave your commitment to me to deliver before 12midnight, twice. 3 times including the airport personnel. I expected it tonight. Now u just change your mind and tell me you will deliver it tomorrow? I am working in a different city tomorrow morning and i travel via bus. It is an extreme inconvenience cz i will not be at home when u deliver and no one is left at my flat. Worst airline experience ever. I regret flying with Saudia. This is my first and last. Please just send my luggage urgent. Thank you."

Pros: "The crew were helpful The seats were far from each other The food was good"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Security measures is ridiculous, too much. Air port is crowded. No place to sit down. Airport is Not very organized"
Cons: "We took off our shoes twice"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The wait times at the airport were atrocious! Every single checkpoint took more than 25-30 mins to clear. Staff needs to be better trained to handle international passengers. Bilingualism should be implemented or provided to better assist guests that cannot speak Arabic. The final stretch that tested my patience to the max was the last security check before boarding the plane. We were waiting in line to be cleared for boarding for more than 1.5 hrs! Our flight was delayed, the food was served late, it was over heated...in short, everything went downhill from there. Needless to say, will not be flying Saudi Airlines again! I'd rather deal with layovers than poor customer service."

Pros: "The check-in staff were nice and accommodating. For a short flight we did get a box lunch which was filling."
Cons: "The plane has seen better days, paint was pealing off some places. The chairs were ok. The flight crew seemed annoyed at everyone."

Cons: "My baggage was days late, and they never communicated with me."

Cons: "The flight delayed for more than 2 hours, they didn't provide any drinks or snaks"

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Once it was noted that the flight wasn't full I was able to move to a different seat so that I could stretch out."
Cons: "I didn't like how there was no clear direction on where we were supposed to go to our connection. At the airport we had to wait for someone from security to check us in again, thankfully we had a wait or else we could've missed our flight. Then when we got to the gate there wasn't an announcement saying that it was time to board."

Pros: "On time, comfortable seats new plane"
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Good crews, not excellent"

Pros: "Generally good"
Cons: "Lacks the attention to details. The Airport lounge is a Desaster"
