Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."

Cons: "The woman behind me wouldn't allow me to put my seat back. My comfortability was off because she didn't want her TV screen close to her face. I didn't want to make a big deal. Other than that I love Qatar airlines."

Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."

Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "very good service"

Pros: "The time of the plane itself was nice and the ride was quick"
Cons: "The food potions were poor expected more from emirates... I took the same flight to LHR how ever this flight was not cleaned properly and the chairs were uncomfortable... I was sitting at the exit and my luggage bins were filled with blankets hence I had to put my carryon at the end of the plane"

And they give my cell phone # 01114488833 and I give them my wife's cell phone # 01225993535. They never call me they never answer me. 8 days. So I went yesterday 10-11-18 to the Cairo airport I met one of your employees. Asking for my 2 bags they told me that they called my my wife but they didn't. I asked my wife she said they never call me. And she talks to them on phone. They said sorry some mistakes happen they should give me $200 for every single day my bags lait but they didn't ButI received my bags broken an I lost my wife shoes and my candy The chocolate rolled over my clothes And the workers open one of my bags and eat some candy and leave the trash inside the bag"

Cons: "Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Cons: "My seat is horrible with something looks like vomit everywhere between a gap of the seat in front of me. Also the touch screen is not working, at first I pushed so hard until i hurt my finger tip, at the end I used buttons on an remote to control the screen(stupid me!!). The screen reset to an old version couple of times during the flight the crew had to reset for me( the airline should know what i'm talking about) It's a six-hour flight but the meal was literally served at 8.55pm(original time) in my section which is the last section to get food when the flight took of at 6.10pm(original time) - almost three hours into the flight. Can't believe they claimed to be number one airline in the world. If you fly to the States from thailand. Take Quatar if you want to go to the east coast or asian airlines any thing japanese or korean or even chinese airline like Hainan airline. They are all way better than this."
Cons: "It was over booked No option to upgrade even though I had more than enough air miles"
Cons: "food and long layover"
Pros: "Besides noted above the arrival on time."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed one hour, then we were asked to line up for boarding but it took another 45 minutes of standing before we were boarded. The flight ended up taking off 2 hours late. We missed our connecting flight, the meal vouchers in Dubai were for vendors that were a) shut down/no longer open and b) of terrible food quality (McDonalds!? AWFUL!)"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. I had to file a complaint with emirates office."
Cons: "This flight did not happen. It was purchased fraudulently and was caught by Emirates. Please remember all my contact information from your website immediately."

Pros: "Tons of movies!"

Cons: "After exhausting flight I don't know what else to say"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."
Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth ride new plane from SF to Dubail"
Cons: "Business class too expensive for individual travelers"
Pros: "The entertainment is excellent- so many choices. I also really appreciated having a plug and a port in the house seat, I could keep my devices charged and feel free to use them as much as I liked. The attendants were friendly and helpful the entire flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing, for a near 17 hour flight, I think 1 more snack would have been welcome. Also a personal bottle of water would have been great. I had to ask for water several times and I noticed lots of other passengers doing the same."
Cons: "I have to cancel on the counter because me and fianse donor have visa"
Pros: "The crew was super attentive."
Cons: "The food choices were not good. The tray included more carbs than any thing else...a roll, crackers and breadsticks. A lighter choice of a sandwich or a cheese tray would have been nice. Rather than small cups of water on a 14 hour flight, it would have been nice to have bottles of water."
Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Cons: "delayed flight management"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "The crews are always awesome. The food great especially since they always have cherry juice, my favorite!"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats in economy were extremely small, and incredibly close. Possibly the most uncomfortable I've been in economy. Food was a baby's portion, which was really surprising. Pakistan might not be a prime destination, but it does not deserve second rate service."
Pros: "our seats were bulkhead seat due to my mother cannot walk so we were told to move back and that was seriously horrible we had paid extra for the bulk seat and it was neglected."
Cons: "our seats were bulkhead seat due to my mother cannot walk so we were told to move back and that was seriously horrible we had paid extra for the bulk seat and it was neglected."
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "I prafer Pakistani or Indian food so I can not enjoy the food and Alcohal should not be served being a great Muslim country. And seat gap was less for legs."

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."

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."

Cons: "Slow service by crew and space between seats"
Pros: "Efficient and pleasant. Affordable and most importantly very clean!"

Pros: "This was my first time traveling with Turkish Airlines and the experience was awesome. The staff was very courteous from LAX till my final destination. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful, the flight entertainment system had new movies and television series. The best part of the journey for me was the chef greeting you when you board the plane. Overall a five-star experience."
Pros: "Rickety old plane. No WiFi. USB charger not working."
Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
Pros: "Safety instructions with zach king were nice! The crew was helpful."
Cons: "My screen didnt work. They reset it a few times, then it began working.. after a while i started playing a game and the screen got stuck!

And entertainment options were very limited too."

Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"
Pros: "Ground & air crew was very cooperative & nice"
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
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."
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. 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."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

Cons: "Horrible food"
Cons: "Veg Biryani instead of pasta plz"
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "The crew were really nice"
Cons: "Entertainment is very limited."
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."
Cons: "The food needs to improve and the movies are old. The actual flight was nice."
Pros: "Business class was really enjoyable with a flat bed. Food was delicious and served with a smile. Crew was helpful and easy to talk to."
Cons: "Entertainment and selection of movies could be improved. The Hollywood movies did not work, others did."
Cons: "Better coordination between stewards."
Pros: "On time flight Good services New aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding took too long"
Cons: "Lovely new Dreamliners. Best TV screen but poor content/choice of shows. Rest good."
Pros: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "The aircraft left an hr late with passengers waiting on board ..no alcohol on the flight which to be fair I knew was their policy..Then they couldnt get the doors open at the destination Airport leaving us onboard for 45 minuutes at the gate..I also found the cabin unbearably hot with no individual air con controls..the crew were also nowhere to be seen most of the flight so had to get up frequently for water and inconveniencing the passenger next to me"
Cons: "Boarding, crew, seating, bus gate"
Pros: "New Dreamliner. Business Class very comfortable. Onboard chef very attentive."
Cons: "IFE very limited, so take a good book!"
Cons: "Was not a fan of the breakfast offered."

Cons: "The Food choices"
Pros: "More movies And good food Pls have working charges of iPhone on Bahrain airport"
Pros: "The air hostess"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Food is always a plus (especially compared to the US flights, where hardly anything but a salty snack and a drink are included with the flight)."
Cons: "I was confused about which check in counter to go to - I purchased my ticket through Oman Air, but they could not find my reservation at the check in counter.... they suggested going to the Gulf Air counter, where I was able to successfully check in."
Pros: "Gap between both flights was tight.But very helpful ground crew & flight crew"
Cons: "The journey was too short to give any proper rating"
Pros: "Liked the professional boarding Very punctual take off & landing Very polite ground crew & helpful"
Cons: "Seats were cramped on the return leg Miles not automatically added.Has to be done at the airport .Forgot to do it with all the hustle & bustle. Food service by crew could be better.Needs more finesse System did not allow to order vegetarian food. Food not very palatable"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Buses took ages when boarding and disembarking."
Pros: "Quick and efficient"
Cons: "Too short of a flight for much to evaluate"
Pros: "Good film selection, great beverage options."
Cons: "The sandwiches were pitiful. Not enough chicken salad for the bread and egg salad sandwiches for the children was a poor choice."
Pros: "Great staff and service. Non-pretentious unlike other tegional carriers!"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment console was standard with decent movies. The hotel and food voucher for flight delay was nice but was only received AFTER fighting with customer service for over 3 hours on the phone using international calling. Terrible terrible."
Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Cons: "Crew Food Quality And finally the flight cancelled"
Pros: "The food and services in Bahrain airport and in plane"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was forced to delay 24hrs for the next available seat."
Pros: "I really liked the crew treatment, they were polite and we well served by them ."
Cons: "The long queue infront Gulf air check in desk in the airport! People who came early that had to wait for a long time to have their boarding pass! I think increasing the number of employers in that area will be a great idea ."
Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."
Pros: "Flight got delay from 1750 boarding to 2025 boarding... gate got moved twice."
Cons: "The flight delays from Manama to Doha and Manama to Manila."
Pros: "It looks there was a special enclosure for Indians. The passengers were made to board by ferryed by buses to board the plane by stairs. It was not easy by old people to climb along with hand bag."
Pros: "The security check was horribly handled. There was a chance for missing the flight."
Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."
Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."
Pros: "Short flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Small economy vlass"
Cons: "Bag lost in Bahrain"
Pros: "Great all around very impressed with the crew!"
Pros: "Aircraft, aircraft crew ,"
Cons: "Boarding desk , online offers , offers with clear explanations"
Pros: "Everything but the crew."
Cons: "Crew Behaviour"
Cons: "Boarding was very poorly managed. Did not board using zones and kept standing for up to 30-40 mins on the aero bridge."
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained. The eye masks were cool - reversible with writing to do not disturb or wake for food."
Cons: "Staff all seemed like they didn’t want to be there. A menu for the food options so you know what you are choosing from - the staff didn’t know what they were serving. A snack/drinks bar to help yourself when you need through the flight."
Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"
Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "Attentiveness of crew member . Movie selection could be better"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"
Pros: "I flew economy Melbourne > Abu Dhabi and then Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The first leg of the flight was great, the flight wasn’t full and I had a whole row to myself. The flight attendant even gave me some tips to ensure nobody sat there. This flight was on an A380 so the plane was large and it felt spacious."
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "The cabin crew in first class and coach were excellent... went well beyond the call of duty... AA and United can learn from them!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure was pathetic... the first class coach was overloaded and after a 10 minute drive a steep ladder to climb!! Kind of difficult if you have been traveling for last 18 hours"
Pros: "The flight was not full. . I had 3 seats to myself. So very comfortable and the crew had plenty of time to give individual attention . The flight was very punctual. Arrived 20.minutes early ."
Cons: "The food was a little cold ."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were mostly attentive to my needs not like a larger carrier. They were also very attractive . The boarding process was not all that bad and they waited for a flight that was coming in late verses just leaving the people stranded that was good as well."
Cons: "I ended up with a center center seat squished in like sardines. There was little to no comfort. Next time I'll pay for a upgraded seat or just fly another airlines. I'll probably never fly this airlines economy again."
Pros: "My first meal offered a lamb and rice dish with carrots and currants that was most tasty, while the second meal included a nice vegetarian rice dish. They were both very good and a good introduction to the wonderful food of the Middle East."
Cons: "I had an issue with the sound on my entertainment unit that caused it to stop every time I paused a viewing. I had to exit then return to the show, which restarted where I paused it, but it was annoying. It also would have been nice to have a solitaire card game to play online. Overall, though, the variety was well thought out."
Pros: "Plane was good, seats were spacious"
Cons: "Check in process was hectic"
Cons: "Everything was bullshit!"
Pros: "Comfo seat"
Cons: "Too ismail for the seat"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "Passengers were not clean and sweating"
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "I have checked my baggage allowance for this trip when I first paid and it was 2 checked in bags. However, I had to pay additional 185 Euros for adding my second checked in bag."
Cons: "Unorganized lines for check in at JFK airport. Wheelchair was not provided, though it was requested before a month. Customer service rep didn’t try to call for a wheelchair."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Cons: "Etihad has gone downhill over the past few years and please consider this carrier as your last option for travel. They are simply not worth the money you save, considering the pain they make you sit through. Extremely poor service from the staff and they offer little to no option to you if the flight gets cancelled. They were not willing to accommodate my request to reroute to a new destination (which actually is cheaper than my original destination) as i was about to miss my consular appointment due to the flight cancellation and this was the only way I could make it. They outright said it's not possible, didn't even check if the flight to the new destination has availability or not. The staff especially at Heathrow is a joke, don't even bother reasoning with them."
Cons: "The person checking me in at Delhi was rude. Didn’t let me take the cabin bag that others were allowed to take."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
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: "Unfortunately our flight from London to Abu Dhabi was delayed and we missed our connection through to Melbourne. However because of the way they hsndled this the delay turned out to be a blessing! Etihad put us up for the 12hour daytime delay in the magnificent Marriot Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The communication and transfer were handled very well. It was a painless process and we got to enjoy a lovely rest before being transferred back to the airport and flying home. Pretty much a faultless experience and one that would see me fly Etihad again without hesitation."
Cons: "Whilst the food at the hotel was amazing, the same cannot be said for the plane! The food was very ordinary. The chicken pie was barely edible. In terms of seating, the seats are pretty standard long-haul fare. There is limited room but the issue is cushioning. They feel pretty hard and it was difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "1. Seat changes are done last minute despite booking the seats online with out informing us. I felt that there was no point securing online seating early. Difficult to adjust seats in the last minute. I was separated from my family. Given wrong information about seats. Had to real work with staff to finally get seats adjusted. Not very easy to work staff. Understanding of English is not that good. 2.Had problems checking the luggage all through despite connection was through star alliance. 3.Had to wait in airport in transit to get boarding passes. Did not understand why it was despite having booked seats early. 4.Seats provided were not good. 5.Also head phones didn't work. I told staff three times and still no response. Finally gave up i had booked because ratings were good. But service was not even close to expectations. Dissapointed."
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Pros: "Very think good"
Cons: "Waiting at Abudhabi before boarding in the passage lobby especially night time in hang over is disgusting. There should be sitting arrangement at least."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing and no one is responding to number presented on the sheet in Chicago, very bad. Please get my baggage to me and be kind to the customers in aftermath of the services."
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"
Pros: "Service is excellent But movie collection is very small Usually 5 regional Indian movies should be there. But only 1 or 2 regional movies r there No spicy snacks There are only bland snacks"
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful. The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I have to wait for 3 days for it to get to my final destination. That is very upsetting."
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "We were forced to sit in the aircraft after boarding for nearly 2 hours as the ground staff waited to load bags from delayed connections."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew very helpful and overall a good flight"
Cons: "The comfort for a long haul flight is never great, but the seats were exceptionally small and cramped (and I am a small person). The in flight internet I purchased but was unable to use after being charged for more that one email -- it went out and stayed out. $22 down the lost unless I can get refunded, which I have requested. If Etihad doesn't refund me, I will be taking it up with Paypal as well as other review sites and business channels."
Pros: "Nice food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Seats, pillow"
Cons: "Food was ok"
