If they have fruits as snacks that would have been good.

I liked the cleanliness of the flight, my check in bags got loaded into cargo for some reason and I had to wait over 30 mins for them to arrive becuase a thunderstorm hit and they people in charge didn’t want to drive the cargo section over in a thunderstorm.

All good other than departing 1 hr late!!

Airplane flight is good,nice and clean

Pros: "Singapore Airlines has everything worked out for you before you land. That's a great help. The stewardesses were just phenomenal and endlessly polite. I will definitely use them again."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Pros: "The crew were all very polite, well mannered, and helpful."
Cons: "As a strict vegan, I had ordered a vegan meal. I was given a meal labeled as vegan, though it in fact was not. I reported the incident to customer service, who responded only with apathy. :("
Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"

1. I’ve never seen any airline weight and enforce carry on luggage. 10kg for carry on and laptop bag is way little. I had to move stuff to check in bag at thr airport and pay excess luggage fees. 2. Food was sub par and not tasty at all. Ended up eating fruits only.

Indigo carrier didn't even get to board from concourse itself during Doha's hot temperatures. It was a bus transfer. The right door of flight was used for wheelchairs and 4 wheelchairs had to wait for 30 minutes in the loading vehicle cabin without AC. Staff I'm this loading cabin didn't wear mask. Flight didn't run AC , air filtration and ventilation system until it took off to save money. Around 10 people I know got detected covid positive because the air filtetaration and AC system was turned off.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "GOOD FLIGHT"
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "Food bad. Much better taste at the lounge in Doha"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Crew etc excellent"
Cons: "In flight WiFi expensive and not reliable"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."
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: "It arrived on Time."
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken and had to be restarted a couple of times before It crashed completely. Food sucked."
Pros: "Crew were good, food was decent"
Cons: "Equipment/electronics was a bit dated."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Everything was great boarding,crew,comfort,food, entertainment ... crew is very helpfull and friendly Bathrooms were always clean,Service was excellent ."
Cons: "I tried to add my millage that I couldn't do Because of not enough guidance .... With in five months I had to round trips to USA From Lahore Pakistan... and still didn't get my millage my request is to add those millage so I can continue travelling with Qatar Air...."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Over all it was a good experience"
Cons: "IEvery thing was fine."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"

Cons: "none"
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."
Cons: "Wish that the airline would have told me in advance that I need an Australia transit visa before I went to the airport."
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."
Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Great flight and service"
Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"
Pros: "The flight is short, it was on time, boarding process was swift."
Cons: "There was one flight attendant with attitude problems but if you ignore her, she would stop it. No big issue."
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."
Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"
Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."
Cons: "On"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."
Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Cons: "We did not make this flight"
Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"
Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."
Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."
Pros: "Good Food and ok services"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."
Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Business class seating is not of international standard. Time to put upgraded accommodation in business class on this sector. I will not be flying this sector again with Qantas."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful 5 stars."
Cons: "Food soggy. Legroom is my biggest bug bear. Really appalling."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"
Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."
Cons: "2 hours late leaving"
Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."
Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
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."
Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."
Pros: "It was a safe flight."
Cons: "I have flown Qantas several times across the Pacific and have had much better experiences on the longer flights. Everything was delayed, the plane was small, and the food was pretty bad, even by airplane food standards. I just expected more given what I have come to expect from Qantas."
Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Good crew, spacious seats for economy. Good food."
Cons: "I wish they let us pick our seats, but they were assigned."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding to help with a defect entertainment centre. They really went out of their way to keep us happy and to solve the problem. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"
Cons: "The length of the flight but that's not anyone's fault!!!"
Cons: "Seats where narrow"
Pros: "Great choice of films...Large screen in an economy seat!"
Cons: "The food...but I never like airline food."
Pros: "I liked how you didnt have to upgrade your ticket to receive food or movies, it just comes standard."

Seating wasn't comfortable. Probably that's what you could expect in a cattle class. Boarding and rest of the experience was great, no complaints

Crew was rude. The seat were not comfortable.

Nice and better

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food you have made batter next time please"
Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "Only 2nd leg- the crew was better"
Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"
Pros: "I like it"
Cons: "Very old aircraft"
Pros: "Punctuality of Eithad Airways,cooperative staff and smooth process"
Cons: "Checking of irrelevant documents"
Cons: "Seat was damaged, not conformed and dirty, like it wasn’t cleand after previous flight. Pillows was used before us. Business calss should be nice"
Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"
Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"
Pros: "The crew was very good and made overall ambience very friendly"
Cons: "The seat alloted to me wasn’t comfortable neither pushing it behind was a struggle left me with pain in my shoulders"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Having to wait 5-6 hours due to missed flight back to NY"
Pros: "Very good vegetarian option, the crew dealt with a difficult patron quite well."
Cons: "Since we boarded so early and the process was long, I was lulled into a false happiness that I had a row to myself that ended up being filled at the last second before the doors closed."
Pros: "The new Aircraft is wonderful"
Cons: "Food quality is not good"
Cons: "On the boarding time thy check you handcarry wait and on that time if you have extra wait they want to throw I don’t like that because on the counter if they check and tell you have exsis wait you have a option to give your extra stuff to your attendant but they give hard time to pas Sanger’s I really hait that sevice"
Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment system and flight condition"
Cons: "Rude on board female staff . Not one believed in smiling or using the word please. They all wanted to control the passengers with needless commands and orders"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Cons: "Food choices were limited"
Cons: "Food service needs to be faster due to length of flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Even though we were redirected to a new gate/plane and had half hour delay, our plane arrived on time."
Cons: "Was stuck next to an overweight lady who was sitting partially in my seat and crowding me. My gate was changed and we were redirected to a ghetto looking area for the gate. My luggage was not delivered along with my flight and I had to file complaint to get it delivered. It caused lots of hardship as I had no way of contacting my family to let them know I had arrived and was safe. They were all worried when I didn't come out of the airport at Hyderabad in a timely manner since I traveled alone due to an emergency."
Pros: "I had a whole row to myself! Fantastic service, very friendly crew, and great movie selection."
Pros: "Having two seated aisle was fantastic for me and my partner because it meant we didn't feel like we were disturbing anyone if we wanted to get up and go to the bathroom and have a stretch. The chairs and leg room was okay, much better than our previous flight. You are fed lots of food so you never go hungry and the entertainment was good. Having USB ports to charge your phone or other devices is fantastic."
Cons: "From Washington to Abu Dhabi was terrible small sweats less room for leg's."
Cons: "Quality of food"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Crew, service, more seat room."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding but that's it!"

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Entertainment could be improved in terms of choices."
Pros: "good"
Cons: "good"
Pros: "Enjoyed my flight"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Bad services over all"
Cons: "Lemo services"
Pros: "A380 is the definition of comfort. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Airline should consider discounting the tickets in the last row as they are not recliners. Cramped for space."
Pros: "Service and food, comfy seats!"
Cons: "Being charged £94 each suitcase for excess baggage from Manchester! Our bags weighed in at 29k and 31k and was told it was a maximum weight of 23k! However when we left Brisbane our bags weighed the same and nothing mentioned to us! How can this happen? Same airline company different rules depending which country you depart? Very very angry with Etihad."
Pros: "Very short flight, but crew was wonderful."
Cons: "When compared to etihad food is better, but when coming to entertainment etihad is way better. When coming to online checkin these guys had some server issues and I don't know how it's possible but some one was able to login to my checkin and ordered a wheelchair for me that was little embarrassing"
Pros: "only the food i like."
Cons: "there is no service when i was fly los angeles to abu dhabi the guy name muhammad threat me many time for food he made mistake on my food and top on that he was threating me i hope some one in this air line take care of this but i'm not sure any one going to care for this and he was saying he is supervisor."
Cons: "They served me wrong food, I ordered veg but when I opened it was non veg lol"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "Some of the crew was unfriendly and rude, this was a 15 hour flight and it was pretty miserable. There were not enough movies to keep us entertained for the whole flight, and this was one of 3 flights I took on this airline."
Cons: "Etihad would not put me on an early flight despite having free seats on the plane. As a result of which I had a 7.5hour layover in Abu Dhabi. If they had moved me to the earlier flight, it would have left a lasting impression on me. I am looking to join a new loyalty program (from Lufthansa) and this gesture could have gone a long way."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be new or something else happened but they ran out of food to serve, so they handed out bread rolls and soft drinks which then sat on our trays for the majority of the flight."
