African Travellers have a Litany of Grievances against International Airlines

African travellers flying on international airlines to and from the Continent say they are fed up with receiving poor service from flight attendants and ground staff and tired of being transported in older carriers. Many told the TV channel AlJazeera that they notice the difference when they transit and travel on planes from the same airline. Immediately that you transfer to a plane to fly outside the Continent there is more legroom, larger, touch-screen monitors and friendlier cabin crews. International airports have also been accused of applying a different set of standards, with African travellers alleging they experience extra security checks and have to walk further through terminals to reach their gates.
