Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Cons: "they cancelled by booking just before hour depature.."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Pros: "Excellent service. Very comfortable business class seat. Arrived early"
Cons: "Boarding & disembarking was via bus & stairs."

Pros: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"

Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."

Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."

Pros: "Comfort in long foight was amazing. Never felt tired. Upgraded movie collection. Food was great."
Cons: "Carry on baggage allowance is way too low. Only 7kgs including laptop bag is too low for international travel. TV screens were a bit old enough and had to click multiple times."

Pros: "The facilitated transfer in Doha within twenty minutes"
Cons: "The repetition of vegetarian food menu"

Pros: "The crew were fab"

Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."

Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."

Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."

Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many flights"

Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."

Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."

Pros: "A 350 was a very quiet plane, hardly any engine noise. Service was good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard."

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."

Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."

Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."

Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"

Pros: "The staff are great, the food is good."
Cons: "The seats are awful, especially on the 7 hour flight from Doha to Barcelona. Very narrow, marginal recline. Also the flight was very hot, my watch thermometer said 33° at one point"

Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Portion of the food"
Cons: "More food for long flight"

Pros: "All was good service, seating comfort and food.."
Cons: "Entertainment content can be more popular in terms of film and television programs"

Pros: "Everything was as expected. .sevice, food and seating was good not cramped. ."
Cons: "The seats can be a tadd hard after 14 hours.entertainment is good enough although film and other programs could be better served if if the content was more popular .."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Entertainment was good though do expect some random editing and bit blocked out. Seat width was fine had lots of leg room."
Cons: "Food was very average - fine just nothing very interesting. Snacks were available. Seat was hard."

Pros: "seats and airplane are in superior state"
Cons: "the food and boarding"

Pros: "Yes indeed. Polite and listening."
Cons: "Snacks at the beginning, dessert, and inflight duty free."

Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive."
Cons: "Although the film choice was ok, the more recent releases were absent. The cabin was uncomfortable with too much chilly air being circulated. Blanket over the shoulders was the order of the day."

Pros: "They are friendly and able to be approach when we have"
Cons: "The flight was new."

Pros: "Service, food served."
Cons: "Economy class legroom is too tight and not comfortable."

Pros: "I Like The Flight is On Time"
Cons: "Don’t really like because I had booked RB from kayak and they never give any e-ticket number nor booked number and made me cannot check in online and need to wait for almost 30mins just to get the check in, Hope when you have a corporate with another online company please let them provide any e-ticket number or booking reference number, thanks"

Cons: "Service can b warmer"

Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "Service can b warmer Practically no entertainment, just a common screen"

Pros: "Crew were ok"
Cons: "Delayed Not enough blanket Seat angle too upright, not comfortable"

Cons: "They ran out of 1of the choices of the meal and I was forced to take the remaining meal which was fish cakes, which I don’t eat. There should be enough food to cater for passengers and regular snacks on board."

Pros: "Their Dreamliner plane is spacious, well fitted, not cramped."
Cons: "Unable to listen to movies with their headphones - too much static"

Pros: "None....RBA shld give everyone a free voucher. Flight is supposed to arrive at 23:30. We landed 02:15. And they let people starved serving the snacks an hour late as promised. Then passengers were moved from one gate to another. It was inhumane and no explanations at all about the delay."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Can improve food."

Pros: "Entertainment is very up to date Crew striving to help Nice all in all"
Cons: "Boarding usually late"

Pros: "legroom good despite A320 being much inferior to B387 Found an aisle seat helpful to older passenger flight on time cabin crew friendly and efficient selected fish meal.bangus..very good did not miss alcohol captain spoke normal English happy with travellers prayer good airbridge on arrival with nearby toilets pleasant arrival procedure for overnight stay"
Cons: "A 320 necessarily lowers the quality compared with dreamliner eg access to toilets and aisle width and entertainment system at manila the`woman at checkout spoke very poor english so had to repeat several times... and she expressed doubt about any seat vacant as`i was late in the queue.. she resolved this by passing me to her supervisor no other problems"

Pros: "Friendly crew, always available and happy to help"
Cons: "Boarding was late"

Pros: "Love the 787. Best windows best toilets, 3by 3 seating. Love daytime travel. Am senior and given bes t possible aisle seat. Friendly check in a t Melbourne. Super cabin crew all smiling and keen to assist...all very smart dress.Good movie selection on average screen. Good service pillows blankets. Above average lunch with quality beef. Good follwup refreshments. Good air quality. Good use of shaded window effect.Liked"
Cons: "Worst was slow moving line at Melbourne. Not enough check ins. Missed the tail and fuselage cameras on 780 and 750. Seat covers look cheap and worn. Coffee and orange flavour not best. Screens not best eg Cathay and Qatar. Women cabin crew good to dress islamic but too restrictive. No t easy th o hear captain messages. Seat design only average. Bandar airport ver y beautiful but need better restaurant."

Pros: "Super crew. Boarding full plane very efficient. Airbus A320 inadequte to serve great meal to full plane. Gangway too narrow. Big struggle for cabin crew. Captain message hrd to hear. On time. Good landing. Entertainment bad flip down screens not good enough."
Cons: "See above. Aircraft not ok for busy sector. Eg A330 required"

Cons: "Dont know why I can not choose seat, it automatically give me a seat next to exit and in the middle, I cannot change it."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing"

Pros: "We were in transit and I checking-in was orderly. Grateful for friendly crew."
Cons: "Not much legroom but understandably as the plane was smaller. No entertainment unit. Very hot, didn't know if the air conditioning was on at all. Didn't like the hot meal much."

Pros: "Very clean aircraft, very good service from friendly, helpful crew, entertainment system is very good."
Cons: "Didn't like the hot meal much. Preferred that crew gave extra water during meals even without asking. Fruits should have been offered, too."

Pros: "Gave me aisle seat, great service"

Pros: "Dreamliner appears to have more room, the seats recline to a greater angle, and it is not cold like a lot of other planes. Cabin crew were friendly, helpful and attentive. The break up of flight legs between Australia and U.K. into 3 legs of 7 or 8 hrs is a great alternative to the 1x9hr & 1x12hr."
Cons: "The entertainment system functionality is great, but choice was a bit poor, although numerous. Food generally quite good, only one meal I was disappointed with."

Cons: "The flight delayed for 5 hours and then cancelled. While I understand this happens, it was completely unorganized. They didn't have any plans to try to get people on other flights (passengers ended up organizing this), they provided a hotel but we had to sit there for over an hour while they tried to find one, and when trying to get flights gets the next day, staff was not proactive...the only way people got rebooked was if they told them what to do."

Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20min from the outset as the pilot explained to all onboard that we weren't allowed to land early at Dubai airport. Towards the end of the flight the plane was delayed for over another hour as we circled the gulf waiting to land. This wouldn't have been so inconvenient if the lights were dimmed again as it was 2-3am local time and passengers wanted to sleep."

Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite"
Cons: "The layover at Brunei airport was a little boring as there's not much to do for three hours."

Pros: "Best crew I have ever had"
Cons: "Leg room is too small."

Pros: "Crew are just the best"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganised, excellent service otherwise."

Pros: "They were able to accommodate my request to move to an aisle seat"
Cons: "Sticklers for luggage weight and the plane was small"

Cons: "BYojet shouldn't be with Kayak get rid of them."

Pros: "Short and sweet flight."
Cons: "Very short flight means may not have time for loo visit. Be warned! Use the airport loo before boarding!"

Pros: "The food!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service with a smile. Great manners."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew, food, flight."

Cons: "Everything was good except for the food. It was average"

Cons: "I like the flexibility of the staff re changing seats. Ground and air staff were very friendly Flight cost was cheap"

Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality. And unlike previous comments, actually enjoyed the fact I had to disembark at Dubai on flight from Brunei to London allowing us all a chance to stretch our legs, go to the toilet and get a good cup of coffee."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Pilot's landing was top noch."
Cons: "During boarding there was a crowd with no possibility to maintain social distance. Crew should have given propper instructions to avoid that."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was smaller than most other flights and the war phonejack didn't work and the video constantly paused every 30 seconds. Also the 1 8kilo bad allowance in the cabin is a bit unreasonable but I see why they need to because the overhead storage and under the sit storage was less than normal too."

Pros: "Everything was fine except the fact that our flight was rescheduled on 24 hours earlier than the original one. It was extremely inconvenient."
Cons: "When the airline interrupts your trip last minute and passengers are trying hard to adjust their plans it would be nice to have a little appreciation from the airline team. And they do not have to be rude to people who are asking to explain the reason of the changes."

Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed and no reason Food very bad"

Pros: "Comfortable for that sort of journey"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Everything is Good."

Pros: "The new aircraft is well put together and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking delays on both sides."

Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces. Seats were packed together very tightly. Given the lack of space, better to fix seats to only recline a little."

Cons: "My bags were misplaced I have to wait for an extra day to get it"

Pros: "Full seasons of resurrection ertugrul would be appreciated. The flight really wouldn’t have felt so long"

Pros: "The food and the entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent staff."
Cons: "Very cramped, even for economy."

Pros: "I love the food❤️"
Cons: "2 hours delayed"

Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"

Pros: "Good food, new movies and good leg space"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, luckily managed to make my connecting flight"

Cons: "Bording the plane has no order passengers seated in the front border before the rear. I was in 32a to he worst seat on the plane"

Pros: "Turkish Airline is really good at making safety videos. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is hands down the best airport in the world."

Cons: "Delay in Turkey- made trip long - I understand safety first - but it was a couple hours ."

Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"

Pros: "They put me on a partner airline after causing my missed connection, so I witnessed nothing good about Turkish Airlines flight at this time."
Cons: "After a long saga with no help in making my connecting flight on the same Turkish Airlines, they gave me the boarding pass and told me my luggage was fine to carry on board for the partner airline they put me on. At the gate, that partner airline's reps (or Istanbul airport employees -- not sure) yelled at me that I had too much to carry on board and forced me to hastily check a bag with personal items I did not plan on checking. Needless to say, that also delayed my reaching the final destination even further because I had to wait for the luggage and it was already 1:00 in the morning in an unfamiliar and rough foreign city."

Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."

Pros: "Big plane, friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."

Pros: "Professional nice food"

Pros: "the seats were more roomier than the flight to istanbul."
Cons: "One of the other passengers was being difficult and irritating on the flight."

Pros: "overall it was ok but the service between chicago-istambul and return is superb"
Cons: "Just the difference in the service between delhi-istambul and istambul-delhi is so much lower grade than the service from chicago-istambul and istambul-chicago it is a real turn off"

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."

Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"

Pros: "service, no delays."

Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"

Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."

Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"

Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Good food"

Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."

Pros: "The food is ok as is the entertainment on board."
Cons: "The crew could be nicer and more responsive"

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."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"

Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."

Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"

Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"

Pros: "their services in the plain and they are very discipline as well"
Cons: "they don't do well in their transit point they should employ more people who speaks English to direct passengers in the airport. English is international language so they should train some people to direct passengers who comes there everyday"

Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."

Pros: "Friendly good service"
Cons: "Istanbul changing gate to get to such long walk"

Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."

Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."

Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"

Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I needed more leg room. I felt squeezed"

Cons: "Flight was late leaving Nairobi due to a catering issue. Missed connection through Istanbul to Manchester. Placed on AF flight to Paris then Manchester. Paris flight was delayed. Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville. All expenses I can ill afford. Lesson learned...cannot afford to use Kayak anymore...sorry."

Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"

Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"

Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."

Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"

Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."

Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."

Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"

Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."

Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"

Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"

Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

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."

Cons: "No screens or headphones on board, you had to download an app on your phone and use your own earphones to watch a very limited amount of films/tv shows. Very tight seats, not reclining enough. It was like being on a low cost flight but for 5 hours. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"

Pros: "Good seating space, good service"

Pros: "Screen."

Pros: "Everything was excellent. The entertainment system was also excellent."
Cons: "The flight had onboard wifi which was awesome to be able to be online during the flight but it did lack the level of service expected. Everything on the flight was fantastic except the wifi which kept dropping out"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Service could have been better"

Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."

Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"

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."

Pros: "Main meal (Singapore noodles) was actually ok."
Cons: "The cabin crew had a very difficult time dealing with the annoying passengers, who were mainly tourists returning from Abu Dhabi. They had a tough job, but it was all very negative and stressful."

Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."

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

Pros: "Boarding in this time was quick, flight was delayed by almost 45 minutes but pilot made time and we were only 10 to 15 minutes late landing into Singapore. The only redeeming quality was the nice gentleman next to me who was helpful."
Cons: "Food was quite mediocre to be honest."

Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"

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."

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: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."

Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"
Cons: "Food served during dinner"

Pros: "No hassle at airport check in. All good"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"

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: "Service"
Cons: "Tv Options"

Pros: "Flight was empty so had enough room next to my window seat"
Cons: "The food was an express snack! For a 2.5 hour flight, I think it’s seriously a shame!"

Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"

Pros: "Absolutely LOVELY crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Bangkok to Abu Dhabi was amazing. Thank you! Everything was very good with except for the screen: on both planes, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. We got 5000 miles as a compensation.."
Cons: "The screen /server didn't work, but it was exceptional in experience."

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."

Pros: "The was very poor they even offer use a drink on the first flight waited 15 mins for a coke that was died when the Gabe it"
