Cons: I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates

Excellent 8.6

Pros: הצוות היה מאוד נחמד. האוכל היה בינוני וכך גם איכות הסרטים.

Cons: אינטרנט אלחוטי חינם. לעדכן באופן ברור שהצ׳ק נסגר מוקדם (כשעה ומשהו לפני המראה) עקב המרחק הגדול בשדה. כמעט פספסתי את הטיסה.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Very kind staff on the flight, I was very happy with the flight. Lots of new movies to watch, which is nice since I’m never able to sleep.

Cons: The lady sitting behind me putting her feet on me... not a fan.

Okay 5.3

Cons: The crew is always nice on China Eastern. They seem to be late a lot of the time. We arrived almost 1 hour late. The business lounge is TERRIBLE. Get something to eat in the airport, not in the lounge.

Excellent 10.0

Cons: All my friends complained of back pain, so maybe the chairs be ergonomically friendly

Cons: A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound.

Okay 5.0

Pros: The crew was easily the WORST I have dealt with. Both on the flight to Abu Dhabi and to NYC. They were rude, unhelpful and extremely arrogant. A co passenger was chatting with one of them and she happened to mention that working with people was the worst ever. She’s been with Etihad for 5 years!!!

Cons: Your crew all need customer service and etiquette training. ASAP!

Pros: The service was good

Cons: At abudhabi there was no sitting available, while waiting for connecting flight, and saw people spitting in the airport lounge, it was unsanitary. Why ethihad donot enforce cleanliness in the lounge.

Good 7.0

Pros: Phone charging, laptop socket, nice legroom and smart recline system means legroom gets better when the guy in front reclines. Toilets clean. New aircraft, attentive crew. AIRBUS A350 IS THE BEST!!!

Cons: Food okay could have been better. Entertainment system excellent but television shows section could have been better.

LAX
TPE
Excellent 8.0

Pros: Crew was the best ever, and I've been flying on China Air for 40 years.... they must have put in a good program to achieve this better-than-before result.

Cons: Boarding from a shuttle bus gate at midnight is problematic... we had to stand on the bus in the dark, and couldn't figure out when the driver was going to turn or stop or go, so people (including many old people) were tripping over for the duration of the bus ride.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
