Cons: "Food variety"

Pros: "Good service from the crew and good food."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"

Pros: "They flight"
Cons: "Complementary hotel for long stops"

Cons: "DOHA to NY. I board the plane to find out that Qatar SWITCHED SEATS ON ME that I selected months ago without any notice at all! Got stuck in middle seat on the wing! I emailed Qatar you know what they said? "Seat assignments can never guarantee." No voucher or anything offered! Fly something else!!"

Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."

Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Hyderabad to Doha and they did not allow us to board the flight as connecting flight from Doha to Dallas would have been left. They did not have seats for next day , the earliest we could go was 2 days later. They did not apologize or compensate for delay."

Pros: "Service"

Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."

Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Cons: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."

Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"

Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."

Pros: "Business Class is wonderful"

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."

Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."

Cons: "Food quality was average. More choices needed."

Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Pros: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further.

Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."

Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."

Very rude The distance to catch the connecting flight The delay at security The lack of trying to let us on the plane. The rudeness I experience"

Pros: "A340 was not the A380 but very nice. Had isle seat and seat next to me was open making for a very comfortable flight."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."

Cons: "way too difficult to try to get exit row seats- I went on line precisely 23 hours before the fight and could not figure out the exit rows- legend said they would be marked by a red line but were not. Very frustrating."

Pros: "Friendly crew, had row to myself, smooth flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure"

Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."

Cons: "I didn't like missing my flight"

Pros: "Meals and service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."

Pros: "Lufthansa really knows how to run an airline, there was a one day strike the day before our departure for SFO, we thought for sure the airport would be a disaster, all through the strike we were updated on our flight status via email, when we arrived to the airport from Florence, we were in a brand new airport terminal, the flow was flawless the plane was on time and you would never know there was any disruption, unlike the US the airport is a mess for days, we would fly Lufthansa anytime."

No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Internet"

Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."

Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "The flight was great."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."

Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Nothing​"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"

Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"

Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"

Pros: "The Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The boarding was late!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "Seat was not super comfortable. Crew was excellent."
Cons: "There was no online checkin or any ability to choose seats on your app."

Pros: "crew was decent"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "aren't all the passengers on the flight same? how come economy passengers denied Biryani, while premium and Business class gets it?"

Pros: "Wonderful trip"
Cons: "A little rough air, but all was good"

Cons: "I have loads of complaints about the entire crew and etihad airlines and I will file my official complaint against them. The space here isn’t enough to write my complain"

Cons: "Very quick through immigration and customs. Then a short cab ride to city."

Pros: "have good lounge seats"

Pros: "787 comfort /"
Cons: "Limited movie selection/ outdated newspapers/ food quality"

Pros: "service"
Cons: "meals could be improved"

Pros: "Customer service very good"

Pros: "Food service and seats"

Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."

Pros: "The new Aircraft is wonderful"
Cons: "Food quality is not good"

Cons: "Service was a bit average. Attendants bumping into you... no apologies"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and cabin confort"

Pros: "One of the best flights I've ever taken"
Cons: "I had to check my hand carry sue to the weight of my bag. When I got my bag from baggage claim I noticed my zippers were opened slightly. When I inspected my bag I noticed that my vapor and my samsung S7 edge were both missing."

Cons: "Small seats-space limited."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"

Cons: "Since our custom and emigration checking was in Abu Dhabi, in Chicago, the flight used a domestic terminal. For our final leg of the flight, we had to haul all six pieces of luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 3. Then we were told that our American Airlines flight from Chicago to Kalamazoo is not a valid one. So we were booked to a different flight 12 hours later. We had to stay in Chicago for 12 hours on our own. Neither Etihad nor American Airlines provide any support for that time period in Chicago. Since it was Etihad ticket, According to international norm, Etihad should take the responsibility for this problem and compensated passengers."

Cons: "Seats and leg space were tight. Also the air conditioning was so cold that most people had the blankets throughout the journey. They ran out of non veg meals. The same happened on the flifht from dallas to a bu dhabi"

Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."

Pros: "The entertainment was the only thing I could rely on that I liked"
Cons: "I didn’t like how undercooked the food generally was, very bland or how the cabin crew was uncommunicative and impatient."

Pros: "The flight crew were both considerate and kind."
Cons: "I disliked nothing."

Pros: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"
Cons: "On board staff not responding not friendly"

Pros: "Lots of food and drinks offered often and tasted pretty decent."
Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."

Pros: "I liked the wider seats and slightly more leg-room on the Abu Dhabi/London leg of the flight, the food was good and the staff pleasant."
Cons: "I was randomly picked for an "extra security check" at the Heathrow check-in in Abu Dhabi, which seemed ridiculous after going through the Johannesburg security and x-ray check as well as the Abu Dhabi one, and then having to switch on all of my electronic equipment and be swabbed for what I assume was drugs felt a bit over-the-top."

Pros: "Decent movie selections."
Cons: "Service is on par with American Airlines which I usually expect a little better with international airlines. Food overalll was terrible. They are not really offering any choices. Even I was first few to be served in the cabin, I was given paneer with rice without offering any options. I complained that how can they possibly run out of options already. They run to the front and got me a chicken meal and told me that was the last one they have. Haha, I totally believed him (not). The meal before landing we were served paneer again. Ugh! Plane is overall dated. They made everybody to fit and weigh the carry on before boarding. My carryon did not fit (although it was pretty standard size carry on) and was over their 7kg (15lbs) weight. I checked mine in since I did not check in any other luggage. But many people were forced check in and pay extra check in fee because they are already at their luggage allowance."

Pros: "Excellent crew"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The flight crew was rude."

Pros: "Everything from chek in in LA to the Arrival in Abothbi"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment during flight was good So was flight attendants. Good mannered cabin crew"
Cons: "Received luggage 3 pieces after 1 day of delay and 4th piece on 4th day Rest was ok Bus transport to and fro from planes Could be due to peak load"

Pros: "The flight was perfect the flight attendants was also up to scale thank you very much for the nice flight"
Cons: "The fly agency supposed to advise me a hotel inside the airport I asked to be inside the terminal so I had to cancel the booking in there and lose money because the hotel they advised me was outside the terminal not inside"

Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Crew not helpful . Same with food not enough ):"

Cons: "Food no drinks only soft drinks were served"

Cons: "not a choice of Indian movies;"

Pros: "Every thing was good"

Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."

Cons: "Boarding process,"

Pros: "Actually there was nothing to like except for the ground crew and the flight took off on time"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The seats are uncomfortable compared to qatar airways, lufthansa, kuwait airways. The food was amazingly horrible. The entertainment device was out of date."

Pros: "We boarded etihad for the first time and the experience was not good at all. Have two major complaints. The boarding area was very strict with the carry on laggage items size. My wife and I have the carry on bags, with which we boarded multiple domestic and international flights and never got a complaint from any carrier, but to my surprise, etihad staff mentioned that my bang is over sized in length and width and I need to check in. And second complaint is on Food. We selected Hindu meal, and the food was not good in taste and the options as well. We felt Air India, Qatar, emirates, Cathe Pacefic etc were better comparatively than Etihad. Staff were all good and supportive all the time."
Cons: "Food Boarding"

Pros: "Comfortable flight."

Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Cons: "Beware of their scamming ways by cancelling my return ticket due to their mistake...ripoff...avoid using etihad and any othermiddle eastern airlines, their planes are ok but their customer service is the worst in the world"

Cons: "This airline has gone downhill in customer service and food over the last three years. We will not travel with them again."

Pros: "The food and crew was good"
Cons: "Same Boeing 777 being used for several years now Seats were very uncomfortable . I advice ettihad should use A380 for these 14 hour flights for more comfortable experience of the passengers."

Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "The food. The charging spots and latest movies."

Pros: "It was a good experience with Etihad airlines, comfortable and ambience."
