Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Vegetarian food. 30% of people are vegetarian"
Cons: "thanks for all from kayak"
Pros: "Staff is the best, very accommodating."
Cons: "It was an old plane so not much comfort in business class"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."
Cons: "Ground crew was very poor at communication, no one warned us we would need a visa; we spent hours and hours queuing for what could have been sorted out in advance. Communication was terrible. The flight was delayed due to Pakistan closing air space. Turkish rescheduled but no real help in Istanbul."
Pros: "Person kicked seat due to reclining and crew did NOTHING to stop. Turkish sold seat as extended comfort, but then said at the gate that they don’t have such seats!!"
Cons: "Fly another airline"
Cons: "Very hot"
Pros: "I highly appreciated the kind care of all the staff in the plane; especially the great selection of food. Thank you very much! For a plane it was really 5 * service."
Cons: "the correspondence between the staff. On my way to New York, I was brought to the lounge to wait until my boarding will start but nobody picked me up as promised, so I had to walk the way. I needed a wheel chair as well on my way back, extra ordered it at the check in, they said it is noted in the system. But nobody was there to pick me up. When I finally found someone, I was brought to a place, being asked to sit down and wait where I still had to pass stairs to come to the passport controll. From there noone picked me up, so I had to go my way alone with pain in my leg. I don't want to argue, I managed it even with pain but I wonder what happens with people if they cannot walk anymore at all. My advice would be that you work on to improve this service. We extra booked business class but this service was not worth being called business class."
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Pros: "the onboard entertainment system is poor: you don't have your personal screen, and the only programmes available are the saftey video and airline's ads. The flight was delayed for 20 minutes at the start however it arrived on time. So that was not really an issue."
Cons: "The crew are professioanl and the service is OK although you need to ask for your tea/coffee. The food isn't amazing but it meets my expectation about the short flight cuisine."
Pros: "The service was excellent, staff helpful and understanding."
Cons: "No business class priority boarding, no assistance available with transfer."
Cons: "Food may become better. Not twice meat, especially not late at night. Give an option for an omelet for example"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment. Late boarding."
Pros: "The check in assistant put us on an earlier flight to Istanbul we didn’t mind as our next flight was at 8pm so had hoped to leave the airport."
Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Pros: "Food is really decent in economy. Good portions and variety."
Cons: "Leg room seems tight compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats"
Cons: "Business class gets only one small lavatory."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"
Cons: "The only kosher foodi is no good must change"
Pros: "Not too long of a flight. Clean toilets and nice smelling soap and lotion. Decent entertainment selection."
Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Pros: "Kids full of praise for on board entertainment. Efficient and helpful staff. Nice food. Provided me with a veggie meal despite my not ordering one beforehand."
Cons: "A little pricey."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient, entertainment options are good and crew is quite responsive"
Cons: "Pitch of the seat is bad for tall passengers at only 31" and on older aircraft the touchscreen is atrocious."
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."
Cons: "It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout."
Cons: "My taxi crashed on the way to Izmir, I missed my flight to Istanbul and my connection to Dublin in still stuck in Istanbul"
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."
Pros: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"
Cons: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."
Cons: "I have a trip from Manchester to Riyadh and I have a stop in Istanbul. Manchester plane was delayed one hour, no problem, but I arrived in Istanbul at the right time and the gate was open I gave them my ticket. They told me that the sestem moved your seat to the second plane but now the plane is open. ? I waited 6 hours at Ataturk airport and had a working meeting I could not attend"
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management. No care for customers."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "There are not diverse food choices"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I still didnt receive my refund."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."

Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"
Pros: "Overall trip was really good."
Cons: "Management of time excellent. Plane went on time. Staff on checking in or in the plane were polite, pleasant, professional and available. Timing of delivery of luggage also was fast."
Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"
Pros: "Evry thing but the dilay"
Cons: "If we arrive on time"
Pros: "Movie selection is great."
Cons: "- Food is mediocre at best. - Slow boarding at Moscow, due to tiny waiting area. People had to queue long through small corridor and stairs, and then stand some more in the bus to the airplane."
Cons: "Flight delayed after previous flight had been cancelled, no communication, awful customer service"
Pros: "best good food"
Cons: "good breakfast"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and good timing."
Cons: "Vegetarian food is very poor quality."
Cons: "Can bend the seat, don’t have to walk and back on the airport"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, excellent crew."
Cons: "Quality of the food could be better for a business ticket. Bread like a stone and not warmed."
Pros: "Both legs were not yet so I was able to spread out a little. Both flights were punctual, despite having to de-ice the plane before take off."
Cons: "The announcements were spoken very quickly. Both Russian and English. It was hard to understand , especially with the English translation"
Pros: "A simple connecting flight turned into a complete joke!!! Somehow, despite flying Aeroflot all the way from Sofia to St Pete, the tickets sold to us were sold via Bulgaria Air, which meant we had to collect suitcases and re-check them at Moscow, all while we were not checked-in for the second leg!! LastMinute.Com is hands down the WORST travel website in the history of travel websites, as the above was not disclosed at any time. NEVER again will I even entertain booking via them."
Cons: "LastMinuye.Com - the worst experience ever ... and now thankfully never again"
Pros: "Crew was nice very polite and helpful that is why excellent rating. Comfort was as good as that can be in economy class, very good food and decent entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit inconvenient as the plane was not at the gate and bus ride was used to access plane."
Pros: "Nuff said, having a gold Aeroflot card is nice"
Pros: "Regestacion online"
Cons: "I am middle size person ,but size between chairs not enought"
Cons: "Worst service, disgusting food, no organization, pettiness with measuring the size of a carry on (including the wheels) at JFK and charging $100 for international standard sized bags (less than 21.5 inches), racist behavior from the flight attendants against anyone who is not Russian, little to no communication with passengers, flight attendants started arguing with people for no reason"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Boarding was pleasant Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment was very hard to navigate and to follow"
Pros: "Some cabin crew tried to do good job Flights were on time"
Cons: "Checkin at SVO terminal D is total disaster. Understaffed counters, hours long lines, lack of instructions and assistance. On oversees flight 4 out of 6 lavatories were out of service. Cabin crew were in such hurry that they missed our row couple times. They served water only 4 times for 10 hours flight and refused to give a whole bottle for some bogus security concern."
Pros: "The service is awesome"
Cons: "It take some time to board as there is a need for a better birding procedure"
Cons: "Food was horrible, boarding was in between 2 gates, easy to be missed"

Pros: "on time efficient boarding - comfortable seating"
Cons: "no entertainment but who cares on short flight"
Pros: "Was excellent"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Cons: "I was in the cue to board the plane and the Aeroflot employee just told me that bording is closed, then 7 other passengers came after me and no one was allowed to bored. They literally just didnt let us enter the plane saying that boarding is complete and they don’t care."
Pros: "Good crew, good food."
Cons: "Bad airplane SSJ-100 (new, but noisy). Boarding was terrible!!! They started boarding 15 minutes early and we were waiting in bus 20 minutes to go to airplane and were going to airplane 15 minutes yet!"
Pros: "Good aircraft. Nice flight with professional crew. No delays."
Cons: "Poor snack (one sandwich and mineral water only)"
Pros: "Plane, level of service"
Cons: "Passport control at the UK border"
Pros: "Generous meals with great food choice. Professional crew. Excellent choice of entertainment to fill the sleepless night."
Cons: "Unless I was doing something wrong, long-haul economy seats barely recline. Combine that with quite limited legroom, and an overnight flight can turn into a questionable experience."
Pros: "Generous meals with great food choice. Professional crew (even though live announcements are barely understandable). Aircraft seems quite new."
Cons: "Not once have I seen an Aeroflot flight to take off at the advertised time. Yet, online reports show a perfect picture, with an occasional departure ahead of schedule. However, that means only gate being closed. Further preparations take quite some time more, and actual take off can start much later than expected."
Pros: "the crew was very good but the food was very bad frozen can't eat it is will never fligh again with this flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding at Sheremetyvo Airport."
Cons: "Food was awful. No tea or coffee after the meal. Long delay at Sheremetyvo on taxeyway for de-icer. Audio system on in flight entertainment was high pitched. Screen was dark even with added contrast. Seats rather cramped."
Pros: "Was really happy"
Pros: "Speed of boarding and staff"
Pros: "Some of the typical premium economy features in the economy class - like the slippers and eye masks, open snack bar, ice cream between meals, menu for meals."
Cons: "Limited choice in alcohol. No whiskey. No healthy options in snack bar."
Pros: "Good flight, departing Moscow wasn't so bad even with the wintry conditions (JFK on the other hand...) Flight staff was friendly and well dressed, video worked, needs were met. Wasn't cold on the flight though I did sit by the window seat so the temperature was adjusted accordingly :) Overall, very pleased with Aeroflot. Would I do it again? Already have a trip booked in two months!"
Cons: "Two go-rounds due to wind sheer in the airport environment."
Cons: "Unpleasant staff lost luggage- we were two days in Shangai without lugage"
Pros: "Aeroflot is SUPER!"
Cons: "I was unable to sit with my wife and daughter. And I was iseated beside a mother with a child on her lap, which was not pleasant, although not the child's fault of course."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane before take off was very cold. I was dressed in a warm sport suit and got cold. My daughter was shievering in 2 sweaters. Blankets were sold not given to us only after take off. We had to wait 40 mins to take off which is fine in a busy airport, but couldn't get blankets when needed."
Cons: "Our luggage got stuck in Moscow. We have to wait until the next day to receive our things which results in the possibility of things we bought and need refrigerating getting spoiled.... This somehow ruined the experience.."
Cons: "Without an explanation or apology given my partner and I had to seat far from each other. We were just told that the plane was full and no effort was made to simply apologise or reciprocate..."
Pros: "awesome - planes, staff, food, all great - smooth, courteous and friendly. The best airline!"
Pros: "Amazing as always! Aeroflot is great!"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could"

Pros: "Good airplane. Good crew (but we didn't hear first pilot). Good meal."
Cons: "Very poor boarding - very-very-...-very long line for passport control in VCE (but it's a problem of airport)."
Pros: "The soda watee"
Cons: "Bitter staff, hideous food, bag never made the connection, seats cramped af, dirty planes..."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight in Moscow by 5 minutes, don't understand why they couldn't hold the flight for 10 people just 5 minutes when they knew we had already landed and were held in the plane because nobody was coming to open the doors. No staff waiting to help us get to the connecting flight, no information and the door had been changed. Massive queu to change flights for the following day, they promise a hotel for the night but never happened. I was flying with a child and the only thing they gave us was good voucher for around 5 pounds each not even enough for a decent meal. They said because we didn't have a visa we couldnt leave the terminal they couldn't accommodate us outside the airport and the hotel inside the airport was fully booked. Spent the night in the airport in terrible seats were you couldn't even lie down, no sleep at all. Then the morning flight was delayed 3 hours. Got, finally to Spain and one luggage was missing. Overall a nightmare! Never again I will fly with Aeroflot!"
Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Pros: "When we were unable to travel due to Corona Virus restrictions, Ethiopian gave us a full refund even though we had a non-refundable ticket, and they were lovely about it when they did it. A+, hope I'll get a chance to actually fly with them soon."

Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and the air stewards were good"
Cons: "The entertainment system not working correctly and the food was poor"
Cons: "Addis Ababa is chaos and not clean."
Pros: "The flight was four hours delayed in Djibouti and there was absolutely zero, NO communication, whatsoever, provided by the Djibouti Ethiopian Airlines staff what was going on, how long the flight was going to be delayed, or if it was actually complete canceled for that evening."
Cons: "Flight ET365 was scheduled to leave Djibouti at 19:00 but did not leave until 23:30, without any screen information or by the Ethiopian Airlines staff at JIB airport how long the delay would be or if the flight was completely cancelled. Extremely unprofessional and ignorant handling of the situation"
Pros: "Fast gate work."
Cons: "Lost luggage and the food and silent movie option (no headphones provided for overhead movie)"
Pros: "Excellent crew, approachable and helpful. Seat was comfortable with legroom and headrest at the right height"
Cons: "Better selection of videos"
Pros: "everything was pretty adequate"
Cons: "they skipped me when they passed out food and never came back."
Pros: "Land crew attention was polite and nice"
Cons: "Restrooms on board was dirty, no toilette paper nor tissues. One fight attendant was particularly impolite, hitting and pushing instead of asking"
Cons: "USB connection was not working from my seat"
Pros: "I liked the fligth attendant"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, although it did help I was the only passenger in business and the food was definitely better than expected and an improvement on last time I flew with them, around a year ago."
Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight :)"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and fairly friendly crew"
Cons: "Better reception and understanding at the airport. The staffs are not considerate."
Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "Comfortable because the plane wasn't full."
Cons: "Check in and boarding was atrocious. We were told that we wouldn't be allowed to go to the gate if we didn't get through the check in but it wasn't our fault that it was taking so long. There weren't anywhere near enough staff and so by the time we managed to check in we had to go straight to the gate. Same thing when boarding. Took far too long and there was an inevitable delay with no apology. Plane ok. One toilet out of order so had to walk the length of the plane. Games no good without a handset and very few new movies."
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."
Pros: "Food was of high standard Crew were polite and made the effort to make passengers feel comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding - Two last minute changes to departure gates, which confused the hell out of everyone. No announcement, just one staff shouting out to passengers."
Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Breakfast was standard"
Pros: "The flight was bigger. So didn't feel so cramped up"
Cons: "The flight attendant were not helpful after ringing the bell multiply times I had to get up myself to get a glass of water. Entertainment not updated Food no change in menu"
Cons: "Nothing. Very smooth"
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: "the flight"
Cons: "extra charge , unable to book meal"
Pros: "On time. Service and culture"
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."
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"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
Pros: "Ground crew communicated well. It was easy to check in; boarding was done on time and smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints, well done to the Ndjamena team."
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Pros: "Everything was to my satisfaction."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."
Pros: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."
Cons: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"
Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"
Cons: "The plane was shaking everywhere thought I was gonna die"
Pros: "delayed departure due to weather , very limited information from the crew towards the passengers."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Cons: "No Wifi at Lome gate. I don't understand why there is no wifi in West African airports."
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: "Hospitable crew. Good food options.Clean space."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful"

Pros: "Great plane Food ok Entertainment system good"
Cons: "Snacks in between meals (9 hr flight no snacks in between meals) Poor choice of films"
Cons: "Comfier seats Some entertainment...there was none. Plane very hot and claustrophobic"
Pros: "I didn't fly throw the Kenyan airlines because they kept delaying my flight time and they want to spend 24 hours at the airport because of my wife is passports is not american passport, so I had to change the flight , the worst experience ever in my flight life"
Pros: "Boarding and comfort"
Cons: "Should be more food/drink selections Probably better to fly Jambo Jet as it has more on offer (even if I have to pay)"
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: "The food portions were disappointing."
Pros: "Glad to receive small snacks for short flight Headphones were issued from from second flights, but not from Zanzibar"
Cons: "Check air on on plane as it was so lights that air doesn’t hit the face so it was very warm flight"

Pros: "Really good aircraft ( Brazilian made Embrare )"
Cons: "Breakfast ! But it was “04:20 hrs ! So fair do’s !"

Cons: "Every thing was fine"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours. I missed my connection flight to Lilongwe and had to spend a night in nairobi. What n incovinienve!"
