Cons: "In terms of comfort, Etihad offers a good level!"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Comfortable"

Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"

Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "All the food is halal."

Pros: "Good crew Seats good"
Cons: "Earphones plug difficult to fit Toilet cleanliness not adequate on occasion"

Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."

Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."

Cons: "They upgraded me to business since I am gold member"

Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"

Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."

Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"

Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"

Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."

Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."

Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"

Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."

Cons: "The seats were cramped, small compared to the flight I took from JFK to Abu Dhabi. Again, The boarding was delayed and no announcements were made. I am saying this despite I prefer Etihad for my international flights. This time the experience was lame."

Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"

Pros: "The crew and the entertainment"
Cons: "Food was terrible , the plane is old seats are really small"

Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"

Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"

Cons: "Food service needs to be faster due to length of flight."

Pros: "Great all round experience - good flight, nice plane, comfortable and well equiped with lovely staff."
Cons: "Nothing!"

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: "The hospitality and punctuality very co op cabin crew"

Cons: "AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. The staff was OK only. The entertainment was sub par. I recently flew Delta domestic flights and it had many newer English and Hindi movies than on this flight to India, go figure. I think even Air India may have newer and many more movie choices than this air line. I flew my sick father with Catheter business class but the restrooms in the business class were same small pigeon hole size. We could not even fit inside to empty out the bag. Don't buy business thinking of the luxury of space. It is a myth."

Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."

Pros: "flight on time easy custom clearance at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "food, perhaps could offer alternative for dinner."

Cons: "they didn't provide wine service"

Pros: "Love, love the legroom in Economy. Much appreciated."
Cons: "Very comfortable. No complaints."

Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."

Pros: "Etihad is the best airline on the planet. Certainly the best of the ME3."

Pros: "excellent quiet A380 plane. Enjoyed the flight even in economy"

Pros: "Everything was lovely."

Pros: "I like the movies. Seats assignment to window in a 2 seats row are the best. They seat a chubby person who was all over my seat the whole 5 joirse"
Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."

Cons: ". My seat was broken and would not recline, for 14hours of flight time this is a really bad experience. When I mentioned it to the staff I was told nothing could be done. Leaving me unrested and sore when I arrived at my destination"

Pros: "Seats where just roomy enough,let's face it,you can always use more room right. Staff was very friendly and attentive . I absolutely loved flying Etihad !"
Cons: "I would still like a roomier seat,again though, I think anybody would . I probably should have perchased first class,hmmm, should the whole plane be that comfortable?And not too much more cost . I say that would be wonderful !"

Cons: "Middle Seat"

Cons: "Too cold in the airplane"

Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "nice plane"

Pros: "Staff in business very attentive and friendly. Food and beverage choices very good. Presentation excellent. Staff in economy nice enough."
Cons: "In business on the 380- where has the massage option gone on the beds?? Those awful hot sandwiches served after breakfast in economy. Greasy, fatty and more like pastries. They have been serving them for years. I've spoken to tens of people and not found one who likes them! Toilets not checked very regularly for clean ups/ tidy ups and replenishments. Online duty free showing 'not available' but when they came around it was."

Pros: "Ample room and privacy provided by the tastefully done seating pod arrangement"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seat was really comfortable, food was alright."
Cons: "Staff, I've missed my snack when I was sleeping nobody awake me"

Cons: "Crew"

Cons: "the food could have been nicer"

Pros: "Good seats and crew."
Cons: "Choice of movies"

Cons: "Flight through kul was delayed. 3 security checks having to go out to another terminal meant immigration check twice. Not enough time for connection. Therfore, i not only missed the fight to India, the two remaining connections... Not good day, now I have to pay rebooking on 3 flights to get home!!!"

Pros: "The Malaysia Airlines crew hospitality is world wide known and I experienced it myself during this flight"
Cons: "I sit in 2K of A350-900. Though it is known as a throne seat, there is an error on the installation of this seat. The foot rest that comes up and supposedly joined with the ottoman to make up the flat bed is too long so this seat never can actually go to full 180 degree mode."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Cons: "Malaysia airlines lost my luggage. Delayed for over 24 hours and had to send to another airport. Cost me hundreds of dollars and no compensation provided"

Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate reflected on the boarding pass for the third time already. And to make it worse, this was the most difficult problem that me and my friends encountered throughout all the flights that we took. We nearly miss this flight as we actually went to the boarding gate that was reflected incorrectly on our boarding pass as stated earlier. There was also an unannounced delay. Flight estimated departure is at 1720HRS, but the flight only took off 1750HRS."

Cons: "Bags didn't arrive at the destination"

Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"

Pros: "my family and I flew one way Singapore to London (15 hours 1 hour stopover in KL) for $1600 (all 4) Singapore Airlines or BA were $1800 per person. they are nicer airlines but not $5600 better. Airbus A380 was a bit tired but service was good. pretty painless trip all in all"

Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."

Pros: "Food so-so. Cabin crew friendly and helpful. IFE was easy to use but film choices were quite limited."
