Food was great. Enjoyed the variety of world tv/ movie choices

Seats in economy could be a little wider. Flight from Dubai to Maa had better seats. Everything else was good.

Tjue legt me strandes on Iraq and the Manager would not speak to me and tell me if I was rebooked or what, I had my PCR test, was four hours early and complied with everything they asked. I am sickened how they treated customers, I needed to spend $2300 to get back to the US.

Pros: "amazing and the airport is awesome"
Cons: "good"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time, movies."
Cons: "Softer seats. Better food. Seat parents with their screaming babies and children in the back of the plabe!!!"
Cons: "Emirates allowed only 1 suitcase on return flight,going jfk -khi it was 2 pieces on return khi-jfk only one which i didn't know and never heard....how can i complain to Emirates please send me info..thanks"
Pros: "Crew was great! For economy class, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"
Pros: "The food was so good. The crew was so helpful too."
Cons: "The seats were tight and not so comfortable."
Pros: "v cooperative crew & helpful"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable , the leg space was too small ."

Pros: "Overall flight quality"
Cons: "Free wifi time can be increased to at least an hour and Food quality can be better"
Cons: "There was no acknowledgment of Platinum status with Qantas. I do not expect anything special, and I usually just get a welcome back, but this time there was zero acknowledgment. The seat from DXB to HKG did not quite go “flat”. The upper half went as far back as, i’d say, around 170 degrees."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Professional behavior of staff and overall cleanliness."
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "They bother me with my duty free gifts. You have to make some solutions"

Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."

Cons: "Staff unfriendly on Baghdad flights most of the time"
Pros: "The food was better than others and beverages were served often. In flight entertainment options were impressive."
Cons: "There was so little leg room that my knees touched the seat in front of me. Everyone in the row had to get out for the window person to use the bathroom. There were 2 kids next to me that stood on their seats and jumped and screamed almost the entire flight. No one said anything."
Pros: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."
Pros: "Everything is very well organised"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Everything was very nice,, one of the nicer flights i have had in a long time and i fly often,, it didnt hurt that the flight was nearly empty,, so i had basically the whole section in the back to myself,, aside from that, the seating was comfortable and more roomy than others,, and the entertainment system was quite nice,, good sound,, larger hd screen and wide selection of programming,, also very convenient inputs for powering up"
Cons: "the bathroom smelled like pee and i was the first one to use it on the flight,, so perhaps some better cleaning maintenance and some type of air freshener"
Pros: "Food taste, staff service"
Cons: "Front of the section seat - Very uncomfortable, badly positioned. I was in seat 37H if I remember it correctly. It was a Aisle seat and this particular seat was extremely uncomfortable. Everyone passing by would somehow kick my feet on their way to the restroom. The tray was too small."

For 5 hours and 1/2 they just ignore passengers needs

Cons: "I changes flights to leave out of Sydney instead. I ended up paying 304.00 in change fee even thought i booked flight using 80,000 miles reward travel still was charged to change the flight"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Cons: "0"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food isn’t tasty at all"
Pros: "Crew always competent & professional"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Cons: "food was poor seat was too cramped the seat in front of me was broken and kept reclining"
Cons: "Plane was old seats are not what you expect for the cost and being supposedly business class"

Cons: "Food was good but not great"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; the section at the back of the plan with drinks and small snacks was also good music selection was also excellent"
Cons: "the meals were not great and spaced out a lot. no green tea, no eyemasks and socks provided"

Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Pros: "Staff this direction was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "You can't check in online or at the kiosk. You must adhere strictly to the carry-on baggage size and weight. The airplanes are a bit worn."
Pros: "A crew member saw that I was crying upon departure and left a stack of tissues in the seat next to me. Then the crew member checked on me later to make sure I was ok. It was very nice and touching."
Cons: "My chicken was raw in my lunch."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Good was good"
Cons: "I sat in seat 77c the seat in front of me had something broken so my seat table kept falling down. Other than that it was good"
Pros: "it was good to escape more than 3 hrs long, tiring journey to Sydney and also lesser wait period at Sydney"
Cons: "Dash 8 looked tried. Seats need an update"
Pros: "Everything except the cabin temperature."
Cons: "Some cabins had no heat. Other cabins had no air conditioning. My cabin was sweltering, which made it difficult to sleep and to be anything other than uncomfortable on the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."
Pros: "The crew take time to talk to you, and everyone of them has a smile. The in flight meals were great, not typical airline TV dinners. They were good meals. The entertainment selection is outstanding, especially for a 14-hour flight. power outlets work, and they even have snacks in the galley area like Lufthansa so if you need a soft drink, coffee or candy...it is there all during the flight. A long flight could not be made easier"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "cramped seats. a miniscule snack, with no napkin to clean up with"
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Excellent people who made the flight very nice. Extremely personable."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good seats. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Qantas seems to be notorious late. This flight was no exception. The food was terrible. They called it a pulled pork sandwich. Jikes. Very crowded"
Pros: "Thank you for keeping track of our luggage throughout the massive delays and rebookings."
Cons: "Gate staff at all locations seemed stressed, under informed and overwhelmed."
Pros: "Everything! Best Airline!"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "The staff was great, the individual screens and entertainment options were great. Boarding and service was excellent. Included meal and meal options."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. My husband and I are both 6ft / 1.8m and on such a long flight, 13hrs it got uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Cons: "I didn't have a seat for good 2 hours from the time I boarded & was hoping that I might have been compensated in some way"
Pros: "Attentive crew Loved that they ranged in ages and races I also loved that the crew were helpful and cheery Crew interacted with my daughter well and always stopped to talk or smile at my daughter as they walked past Qantas are truly the best!"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to faulty maintenance at LAX. Pilot (rightly) refused to fly until maintenance work correctly completed. Plane then diverted to Brisbane to change crew, en route to Melbourne."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment system. Unfortunately, I discovered season 6 of "Game of Thrones" too late to binge the entire season. The crew was friendly-- it was as comfortable as a 16 hour flight in the economy cabin can be."
Cons: "I did not get much sleep-- I was watching movies and TV!"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "drinks offered"
Cons: "I could not sit together with my 2 sons. There were empty seats on the plane. No free food."
Cons: "Why do they use QF flight number between Hobart and Sydney/Melbourne when it is operated by JETStar? As a customer I naturally expect I can get the same service from JETStar as Qantas.However I had to check out my heavy luggage at Sydney Airport, get a shuttle bus paying money and check in again at JETStar. The JETStar staff at the airport was not helpful at all! On the contrary she BLUNTLY told me JETStar is a different company from QANTAS. That's all. At Hobart Airport I was BLUNTLY told again I had to get my luggage at Melbourne Airport and check in again because they didn't have facility to forward the luggage to Qantas. I understand Qantas and JETStar are allied airlines and so they should give the same service as any other allied airlines. I need good explanation about these poor service from JETStar and Qantas. Thank you ."
Cons: "seats are very tight on this plane food was confusing - had a $10 voucher - we didn't understand"

Nothing

Service could be better. Not if it is because of covid or if it because Etihad is facing financial struggles but the overall journey was below average compared to other business class I have taken in past. I was comparing with Emirates which is much better service and plane quality.

The best opportunity you will clear us immigration at Abu Dhabi

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: "Boarding was chaotic. In seat entertainment had great selection, but dated screens."
Pros: "Screen."
Cons: "Attentiveness of crew member . Movie selection could be better"
Cons: "They need to do better on food"
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: "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: "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: "Good price. Long flights were not at all crowded. US preclearance in Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Entertainment. Food was so-so."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "Very well organized and efficient. Very friendly staff. Great service."
Cons: "I paid for internet which constantly disconnected. Waste of money."
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: "Crew On time"
Cons: "Very slow process for checking, only one person for business class and it took forver to finish"
Pros: "The flight took off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "The food was not good but for a short flight, I was ok with waiting until I landed in Kathmandu to eat."
Pros: "This was my second time flying with Etihad and the experience was excellent. Continue to provide excellent service to all customers regardless of where the sit"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "Nil"
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: "Plane is too old needs to be updated and good was below average. It used to be much better than that"
Cons: "Food, crew, seats and plane"
Pros: "Staff were professional."
Cons: "Too full, busy flight with noisy travelers. Many children were constantly crying and there was too much going on. perhaps staff could suggest that travelers remain quiet or mindful of others who are trying to sleep."
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: "Terrible service, lost all my luggage with no recall on where"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Good food and vegetarian options"
Cons: "Not very good movie options"
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: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was horrible"
Cons: "The Food is bad."
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "Service. Crew was nice and always with a smile. Great takeoff and landing very smooth. Flight on time."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"
Cons: "I didn't get to take this leg of the trip due to Precision Air forcing me to miss my connection- I had to fly on Oman Air from Dar Es Salam to Abu Dhabi. I will never fly with Precision Air again."
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "Probably one of the more comfortable flights I've been on."
Cons: "We got rerouted through Singapore for an unscheduled stop, had a flight crew change which added 3 hours onto the flight which caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight to Bahrain. I did make the flight being the last person to board, but my bag did not."
Cons: "There was an issue with my ticket/ boarding pass from JFK to Raleigh. It was said that the exchange ticket did not reflect in the system for Jetblue and that I will have to call their call center and figure out the issue. I was lucky that I found a staff from jetblue crew who could figure out the issue and help me out. If it was not for her, I could have faced difficulties."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Call center"
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Flight took off on time and landed ahead of schedule. Exactly right for a short no frills flight."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Pros: "The food, the wine"
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Good range of in flight snacks and food"
Cons: "No Wifi capabilities"
Pros: "I would like a refund on my ticket"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact i had to wait the same amount of time it takes to get to the destination because of the delay"
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Flew from Gatwick - good airport"
Cons: "Too many children on board"
Pros: "Service was really good"
Cons: "The seats for business class were economy seats but with the middle seat being a tray!! Expecting bigger seats with more leg room. Disappointed."
Pros: "Arrived on time. Routine European short-haul flight from BA with no frills - as expected"
Cons: "Late departure but caught up the time on route. Very busy flight with only middle seats available 1.5 hours after check-in opened."
Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Pros: "Everything was dealt-with efficiently. Very friendly staff. I didn’t want to have to make that journey but it was as comfortable as it could be."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better."
Pros: "Check in too long for drop off bag otherwise quick boarding, flight early and bagage delivered very quickly"
Pros: "Lots of updates from pilot"
Pros: "All pretty good."
Cons: "I received an email before the flight telling me as the flight would be operated by another carrier there would be free refreshments - but it wasn't and there weren't. Rather odd."
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. On time departure"
Cons: "Could not check in online or via app due to system issues"
Cons: "Not impressed at lack of free food on ba flights"
Pros: "Cleared Gatwick security fine. Boarding was fine. Departed gate on-time."
Cons: "Got 200 yards from the gate only to park in another stand, the plane shut down and waited an hour for engineers to come fix a ‘communication computer’ error (basically they had to reboot the plane)."
Pros: "Full flight, but still excellent courteous service from all members of staff."
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight was before time on arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Minor fault identified and notified to passengers prior to take-off, and dealt with immediately. Crew excellent"
Cons: "Cramped seating, the feel of a budget airline now in economy, with seat choice, refreshments and stowed baggage all ‘extra’"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Went smoothly and on tome."
Pros: "On time, polite crew."
Pros: "Flight was great, processed quickly both sides. Cabin crew were lovely."
Pros: "Flight good."
Cons: "Your website didn’t tell us bags not included. Cost me an extra£200 at airport. More than poor. Who do I complain to?"
Pros: "On time, smooth and comfortable flight. Crew very helpful"
Cons: "There wasn’t much not to like about this flight. All very good. But so short no entertainment really possible"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional, boarding was orderly which was a welcome relief in this day and age. The only saving grace for this flight was the entire crew."
Cons: "Everything except the crew. The airplane interior was ancient and would be better served with Allegiant aircraft and not something that should be on a so called premium route by a once premium company. I would honestly recommend anyone fly Thomas Cook or TUI or even Norwegian before flying British Airways 777s as they are ancient wrecks with no value proposition. I would recommend going by boat before flying British Airways 772. The only time I would recommend flying any of the 772s from British Airways was if walking was your only other choice and even then a nice pair of trainers would probably be more comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was okay and staff where friendly"
Cons: "Delay on take off even though we was early loaded, rusty wings on the plane made you wonder if it would make it!"
Pros: "On time quick boarding and away"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"
Pros: "Pilot friendly chat at gate"
Cons: "2 hours to offer food through the plane Slow inefficient payment process Bacon roll served with cold Centre - inadequately cooked after 2 attempts"
Pros: "This flight was what you should expect - smooth boarding, helpful and friendly crew, good food and drinks service etc."
Cons: "The wash bag is now so limited- the bare minimum (and that's in business class!). No comb even. No face wipe either. It's an obvious thing to economise on from the airline's point of view, but it doesn't really have to cost them anything. And the choice of new films was somewhat disappointing - they are relying quite a lot on older films. and no duty free at all (the crew were apparently not given the correct paperwork to allow sales). This was disappointing as I had been hoping to pick up a dual SIM gadget. None of these minus points are major, but they detracted from my enjoyment of the flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A two hour flight and they ran out of time to serve drinks. Maybe if BA reversed their ridiculous decision to charge for drinks, it wouldn't take them so long."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "Crew treated you well, boarding was organised and as a silver club card holder I was rewarded with priority boarding (less queues, less hassle)."
Cons: "Old style entertainment console, small screens, no usb or plug point for charging."
Cons: "FOOD/SNAKS"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment options, it was fine once we got on. Stewardess was nice"
Cons: "Being four hours late"
Pros: "Food has gotten much better than maybe 10 years ago? Decent quantity and taste. Food is heated."
Cons: "Boarding took longer than usual but they did announce that the gate we were assigned was not setup for that plane."
Pros: "The flight itself was adequate"
Cons: "We sat in the plane for over two hours for mechanical reasons, then re-filing of flight plans, then the need to take on more fuel. Missed our connection and were put on a later flight that was also delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Amazing crew, everything was perfect."
Cons: "I was unable to switch my assigned seat online therefore I went to the United counter in London to have my seat changed. It seemed to be a bother for the person who helped me. Was not friendly at all"
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and very helpful; one gentleman even took time to help me figure out how to get around the airport before we landed since I had a very short amount of time to make a connecting flight."
Cons: "Honestly, this was the best flight I've ever been on. I've never had the pleasure of having an entire flight crew be so friendly, and since the flight wasn't full, it was very comfortable."
Pros: "Enough space between seats"
Cons: "Very little food"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The last seat didn’t have a window so if felt like you were crammed into a tiny space and had no idea what was happening."
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Food and beverages, as expected on United."
Pros: "The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing."
Cons: "The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner."
Cons: "The audio and video system is not working at my seat. They said they were working on it but told me nothing they can do after 2 hours airborne. They finally compensated with a credit for future trip."
Pros: "My wife and I flew Lufthansa a good deal in the 1970s and 80s, we stopped in the early 90s because I was working with young people and had difficulties provided them with a non-smoking environment. This is the first time I have used Lufthansa since 1992. Based on the flights over and back, I believe we will start using it again."
Cons: "Experience with partner airlines is not as good as with Lufthansa directly. I mean, Austrian and United. They do not provide the same attention to detail, courtesy, or organization, particularly pre boarding and boarding."
Pros: "all smooth"
Cons: "The staff were very rude and unfriendly, the food was very low quality. No extra snack was offered during the flight. Boarding was late and delayed. Overall it was a horrible experienced."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "The flight length and capacity was fine. Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "The plane was outdated, the entertainment was a screen smaller than my phone and had only set movies or shows that played in repeat. Apparently you could download their app and watch other stuff but we weren't informed of that at all while waiting to board which would have been sensible (when there was Wi-Fi access). For a long flight, that would have been nice. They also made a big scene about the bathrooms, apparently us in economy didn't pay enough to use the bathrooms in front of the thin blue curtain that wasn't really closed. It was a bit weird, they're just crappy bathrooms regardless of where they are on the plane."
Pros: "bad movie choices"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."
Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"
Pros: "overall very pleasant and relaxing food good able to sleep due to luckily extra space! very pleased"
Pros: "Flight attendants helpful, service timely"
Cons: "Food just okay, not awful."
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the flight and the cordiality of the crew."
Cons: "I did not like the packaged meal. It was less than satisfactory. The sandwich was decent, however."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"
Pros: "Finest Business Class experience I've had. Flew to Europe on Lufthansa, which I had liked the best, but UAL's new cabins and services were far better."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and receptive to needs on the flight."
Cons: "Baggage Claim was a nightmare. I did not receive a baggage ticket when I checked my bag in London. Part of that is my fault. I should have made sure I had one. It took an extra long time to get my bag. Everyone else had left the area from my flight and I approached the counter. The attendant at the counter was rude. She said she couldn't help me unless I had the baggage claim ticket. Which I get that, but it all comes down to how she said it to me. She went over to the carousel and said that my flights bags were still going around and at that time I saw my bag. I said there it is to her and she responds, well you can go get it yourself then. Just completely rude. It all came down to how she responded to me. I was freaking out at the prospect of my bag being lost and she responded as clipped and uncompassionately as possible."
Cons: "This was actually a United flight. It is very confusing when all of the travel documents I received from Kayak show Austrian Airlines yet when I get to the airport to check in, it's United Airlines."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, instead of a direct flight back, we had to go to Munich and then fly to LA"
Pros: "The actual flight was great, employees on the plane were very friendly"
Cons: "We missed flight by 5 minutes and employees were not helpful at all. We had to stay the night in Houston due to this fact and caught a flight out the next morning. The employees were all ready to get off work and left w/o helping us."
Pros: "United now has small mattresses to put on your lay flat bed in business class. Very comfortable! For once they had my first choice for lunch and it was delicious."
Cons: "The seats are lay flat beds. However they are very narrow especially where the feet are resting. If you are over 5ft10 it's too short a bed. You feel that your feet are pressed together when you sleep. Also no seat level storage space. Seats are narrow and are almost impossible to sleep in resting on your side. Would suggest united try out the Emirates airline business class seats on the A380. The British Airways business class seats and New Zealand business class lay flat seats are also much nicer."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Choice of entertainment was great."
Cons: "The system kept malfunctioning repeatedly, and had to be restarted by both the flight attendants, as well as myself (I had to keep turning it off and on and restarting movies)"
Pros: "Cheap, non-stop flight to London."
Cons: "I'm glad that the ground crew id'd an APU leak prior to takeoff, but delayed flight for an hour. Crew was not memorable. VERY limited entertainment options available for a 7-hr flight. Was looking forward to experiencing Austrian Airlines, and upon check-in was pointed to the fine print on my booking: "Flight provided by United Airlines." Was hoping for a flight like the one we took on Turkish Airways a couple years ago -- a very high standard. But couldn't even get comfortable in the seats. The entertainment screen was very difficult to use; if there had been more options I probably wouldn't have been able to get to them anyway. Could barely reach above-seat vents, even when standing. All this was made worse when we had to walk through the First Class section when boarding and deplaning. The disparity between the comfort they experienced and the minimum standards in economy felt like Austrian Airlines/United were rubbing it in our faces that we didn't want to spend more on travel."
Cons: "It was very cold for the first part of the flight. No proper meal was served, even though it's a 12 hour international flight"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
