Cons: "Crew was not very organized or helpful. Need more training/experience."
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."

Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."

Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"

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.

Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."

Cons: "Nothing really.."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and presentable. Food good with real silver ware."
Cons: "I was charged $600 to postpone flight after I found out I needed a VISA to fly to India. Initially I was told the cost would be $100 ad then it ended being $600 for both me and my husband which I found outrageous. There should be something that flags you as soon as you book the flight that a VISA is required in order to fly to India."
Cons: "I wouldn't fly Etihad again because they lost my bags twice"
Cons: "The crew over exaggerates everything, I asked for an airsickness bag and I was offboarded! They didn't even rebook a flight for me!!! I had to buy one myself"
