Singapore airlines has resumed after Covid selling premium services but not opened lounges to cater for the demand you cannot get a seat in their lounges and social distancing is non existent. I wouldn't pay for services you don't get so be aware.

I love everything about Singapore airlines excepted fact that you cannot reach a person to speak with anything with on the phone that is the only reason I may not use a Singapore Airlines again I tried many times to call someone and cannot speak to a person about some specific problems that I need to speak with an individual about

I have guitar when I fly, they don’t allow to take the guitar with you on board even the bins was empty

Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Early landing great service loads of legroom as am 6ft 5"
Cons: "N\a"
Pros: "Lucky to have the seat free next to me otherwise not much else good."
Cons: "Was supposed to be a A380 but they changed the flight to 777. I only flew with Emirates to be in the more spacious A380 otherwise I’d have chosen another carrier at better price. I also paid to choose seat which naturally didn’t apply any longer and was put at very back of plane so that money was wasted. They could have at least advised but the attitude was blaze and not willing to even speak to me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."

Cons: "Delay and worry I would miss connection"
Pros: "Arguably the best service I've ever had on a flight"
Cons: "Had to stop movie 20min prior to landing as I was in emergency exit row"
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "The seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic. Why ask First and Business passengers to start boarding when all you are doing is getting them to leave their seats and stand up for fifteen minutes in front of the closed doors going out of the departure lounge?. This has happened three out of three flights and must be standard operating procedure."
Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment is as good as ever."
Cons: "The food was wore, the staff seemed less happy and the flight was overcrowded. Not a bad experience, really, but slightly worse than the same flight the previous year. Getting to be the world's best airline may be less challenging than remaining such."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants skipped over my row while offering beverages. One person was asleep but i was awake and thirsty. I had to wait until an attendant was unoccupied to get some water"
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Flew Emirates coach Washington to Dubai to Johannesburg and Bangkok to Dubai to Washington in July 2017. New A380-800 planes were superb. Entertainment system is second to none. Staff is efficient and polite. Except for the "required crying babies" on each leg the plane is very quiet and peaceful. The check-in, however is a zoo. But better to put your best employees on the flights rather than on the ground."
Pros: "Seating and hospitality"
Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"
Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"
Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"
Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"
Pros: "It was a great experience...nicest airline I've ever flown. The cabin crew was attentive and accommodating and being a vegetarian I found they had many options for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"
Cons: "when the PA announcements came over the loud speaker, when i was listening to a movie, was extremely loud"
Cons: "1.45 hours connection time in Dubai was hardly sufficient. Had to run through main terminal. Despite being in business class, no special service to bring us to the gate. Not good enough frankly."
Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "Excellent all the way."
Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."
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."
Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."
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: "I was so worried about missing my connecting flight but I got express immigration checkin it was a great gesture, didn't expect it from Emirates"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food"

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"

Pros: "Excellent crew, quick serving a lunch on a 1.5 hour flight."

Pros: "The service. The friendly crew. The clean airplane and bathrooms, the food and drinks. A1"
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "Qatar airline is one of the best ways to fly!"

Pros: "Everything was first class with excellent service"
Cons: "Long flight with long layover in Doha"

Pros: "the attendants were always on top of things. One of best overall flights ever."
Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"
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: "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: "Good crew. Nice plane and amenities."
Cons: "Flight to was canceled due to engine issues. Flight home was canceled due to scheduling error. Issue resolved at check in, but caused stress."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"
Pros: "view above"
Cons: "A gent was VERY tall. I couldn't put my seat back at all. The kicking was so bad I changed my seat."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."
Cons: "I was hoping to replace worldmate with you application. you got it wrong. I travelled from Doha to Guanzhou, Bangkok and back to Doha. I don't even know where Sohag is!!!!! Qatar airways did a perfect job as usual."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."
Pros: "Great flights. lots of room in economy."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Cons: "Not hung; great flight, great service"
Pros: "Boarding was handled very well. I find the crew incredible; they were very attentive and very helpful. They certainly looked after the passengers."
Cons: "They went out their way; I can't see how things could have been better."
Pros: "The crew took covid-1@ precautions seriously and made me feel protected during in flight services. They were very polite and considerate."
Cons: "I would have liked to have a weighing station for my baggage before I check in so that I could adjust my belongings to fit the 23 kg limit. Instead, I had to guess my baggage's weight because which ended up going over the limit slightly."
Pros: "Seats are spacious and comfortable. Flights were on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Food was not too good."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Wish I could have picked my seats prior to checking in"

Pros: "Seats had plenty of leg room. Being 6-4, I appreciate that. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "I don't are a lot for Asian food, so I always wish there was more options for meals... the movies were always running, so there was little chance of catching one from the begining."
Pros: "My husband and I were so hot during this flight! We originally had bulwark seats, then were changed to a "better " location. This new location had no air vents above it, while all the other seats did. People around us were using blankets, while I was fanning myself. We couldn't use our neck pillow...it made us hotter. I dread the return flight!"
Cons: "See above The food was good."
Pros: "checking in at airport was quick and fast"
Cons: "Food quality is not good for the price of the flight ticket Food taste has gotten worse compare to before Drink selection is not enough. Movie selections were not enough and boring Sit is lacking a cushion Sit was broken and couldn’t have tilted back Ear phone outlet was broken and couldn’t get enough sounds People were changing sits or finding empty sits and self relocate their sits. Crews did not say anything. Some crew members didn’t speak enough english"
Pros: "Great entertainment system for every seats unlike the other 777 I took a few days ago. This one also had plug-ins available. As always, cabin attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as my earlier Asiana flight from Honolulu to Seoul."
Pros: "I love how they give importance to parents traveling with little kids."

Cons: "I didn’t realize some of the food was going to be so spicy. Perhaps a bit of a warning next time would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "The crew were efficient, nice and friendly. There was a sick passenger and I think they were able to help them out. Even though there was a slight delay in the take off but we managed to stay on time."
Cons: "The bathroom was slightly flooded, one bathroom the water wasn't running so I couldn't wash my hands. There are not enough amenities in the bathroom. The food could use a little improvement. Waiting for the baggage claim took too long."
Cons: "I had to pay $100 both legs of the flight for an extra bag. I could have went with another airline and payed a cheaper overall flight if i knew Asiana was going to charge me. Ive taken similar flight through Philippine air and they never charge me for 2 bags. This should be something factored in with $$ or highlighted before purchase. Instead of the airline sneaking extra fees on its customers....."
Cons: "Every flight with asians was delayed."
Pros: "They served grewl twice I thought I was getting grewl with road kill to eat"
Cons: "The food and seemed like one of the lady's working there did not like her job"
Pros: "Staff is friendly smiles and goes the extra step to insure comfort"

Pros: "Nothing, very poor service"
Cons: "Food, service, delay at airport"
Cons: "not enough water provided old outdated plane, seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "The flight from Korea to San Francisco was so late more than 2 hours"
Cons: "2 and half hours delay made me crazy and caused a lot of damages for the time and parking fee for my entire family, who were waiting for me at the airport!"
Pros: "No tv, no complimentary water no food no nothing The poorest experience ever"
Cons: "This company shouldn't be legally running It's a gigantic scam Didn't even know such a airline even existed"
Pros: "Everything seemed mediocre. Ok plane, comfort was ok, nothing great but nothing terrible."
Cons: "I can't understand why the flight attendants didn't come around collecting trash with a trash bag. Almost all the Asian airlines I've flown on, the flight attendants were always real nice and helpful, but That wasn't the case with Asiana airlines this time around. On our flight from LAX to Incheon, and from Incheon to Cebu, the flight attendants all seemed miserable and unhappy, not smiling at all. I've flown Asiana few times before and had always been happy, but this time, it was definitely different, all because of the seemingly unhappy flight attendants. On our 12 hour flight from LAX to Incheon, the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper and in 12 hours, they didn't once come around with trash bag collecting trash. Sure, they collected the plastic cups drinks were put in, but that was it. How do you not come around collecting trash AFTER A 12 HOUR FLIGHT? Also, just the little thought of maybe providing a hot towel after a 12 hour flight would have been nice. In the future, if given almost the same price point for a ticket, I would choose another airline over Asiana Air."
Pros: "The friendliness of the flight crew was great. The leg room is better than other airlines."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment options on my second flight compared to my first one."
Pros: "I was the only one in my row."
Cons: "Changed flight without notifying. 27hr Stand By. 4hr layover in Korea. Stuartess had attitudes. Still have 11hr flight to LAX"
Pros: "Good selection of in-flight movies. Liked the TV screens in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. Departure and arrival on time with no delays."
Cons: "Excessive announcements in both Korean and English. Seats VERY uncomfortable. Flight attendants made everyone put down their window shades and did not give the option for people to make up their own minds. In flight meals, while hot and included in the ticket price, were not the greatest."
Pros: "The crews are friendly and Helpful staffs."
Cons: "Chairs is not comfortable. It so hard!!!"
Pros: "The staff was really friendly and kind, but people just on the plane in general were pretty bad. (Although a cute baby kept walking around and not sleeping almost the entire flight, I was just glad that I was going back home)."
Cons: "The people in the back of me was so rude, they did not let me put my seat back although the Asiana staff told me I could, but they just kept complaining."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. I checked in two bags and did not get charged."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and it was very hot inside the airplane. I woke up a few times because it was very hot and had to drink water to cool down. Also, the day before my flight I had a medical emergency and had to be sent to the hospital. I missed my flight and Asiana does not cover medical emergencies...other airlines do! Way to go! Had to pay extra to get another flight."
Pros: "Two and a half hour flight but full meal still served. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Crew was friendly from start to finish."
Pros: "The food was good and the movie selection was good."
Pros: "The air "exercises" that you are forced to watch at the end of any Asiana flight are a joke- pressing on three pressure point? How about some leg or arm stretches? Flight took off and landed. Poor cabin speaker system; could not understand anything."
Pros: "Meal was good"
Cons: "Was charged USD 350 for one overweight bag. Asked Etihad beforehand if I could use a 72 transit visa to enter china on my current itenary. They said it was fine. I was stopped at the gatein Seoul by Asians who refused to board me on the plane because my itenary was incorrect. Will never fly either of these airlines again, and am currently seeking repayment for my unintended 4 day stay in Seou"
Pros: "Plane was clean and crew was friendly."
Cons: "This was a 5 hour flight and there was no food offered. There was also no entertainment option other than music."
Pros: "Flight is on time. Crew were great and love that they offer free tour when you have long lay over."
Pros: "Flight attendants are great. always trying to help , with a smile while doing so."
Cons: "Delay 50 minutes waiting for connection flight 2 nd time (50%) on this trip, appears that this airline is getting bigger and disregarding schedules for $$$. Also advanced on line seating is meaningless. Internet web-sight is always a problem finding the correct pages if you have a problem no local contact listings (tel. #) in major cities they have offices in. I had a Tel. # for office in BKK, used in the past , they changed the # without even leaving a message or new #. I needed to change my departure date & because I could not contact them thru web sdite or Tel. this was not possible & missed a very important meeting in N.Y."
Cons: "Asiana Airline allowed a drunken passenger sit next to me. Everyone can smell and knew that he is drunken. The 1st thing he did after sitting was drinking alcohol from his pocket. Yes, one of the staff came to him and got the drink from him. But, he talked me for about 4hours nonstop and made me uncomfortable at all. Other passengers around me saw him because he talked too loud. I expected that they would offer me another sit and left him alone. During 10 hrs flight, I had 2 Tylenol capsules because of the smell of the alcohol from him. It was REALLY hard time for me to sit next to him during 10 hrs. DO NOT ALLOW A DRUNKEN PERSON TO GET ON A PLAIN FOR OTHERS."
Pros: "The food and drinks were up to par but not great Convenient arrival/departure times.."
Cons: "Service is hit or miss. Stewardess manners can be favoritist and downright rude/bossy at times. My flights years ago were great, now I would not look for anything special from this company"
Pros: "Need improvement - customer service"
Cons: "Courtesy"
Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19...still waiting for refund ??"
Pros: "The aircraft was good Ahead of time arrival Immigration at AbuDhabi"
Cons: "In tag"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "The flight was surprisingly empty compared to flying to Abu Dhabi. I had an entire row to myself. I was able to lay out and sleep peacefully without worrying about the traveler in front of me leaving their seat back. Highly recommend Etihad airways!"
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: "Etihad crew are awesome. The A380 is the best plane in the skies"
Cons: "Free upgrade to business class? Because everything was perfect!"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The legroom was inadequate."
Cons: "If a flight was delayed you should arrange something to enhance the security check procedure for the passengers of connecting flight. Qatar airways had done that for the passengers."
Pros: "Transiet time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Fast track"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Everything was great. Crew was very nice. Food good. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Seems like the plane needed to be retired compared to others. The tech was old."
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a medical emergency on board, so bathrooms did not get the necessary attention. Had to ask for toilet paper for two different bathrooms. Transferring to this flight as a NIGHTMARE. The boarding gate was a long way from the arrival gate. Went through an endless maze. Went through two security check points. At both check points I was sent for pat down. At the first there were five other women who were waiting for pat down. All white women. Discrimination???? At the second security, I had not even passed through the detector and the officer was waving me to get a pat down. At that point I started laughing. Next automated preclearance for immigration, then had to wait in line to talk to immigration officer. It is a miracle that I made it to the flight on time. Passport and boarding pass checked minimum of 6 times in this process. On arrival in Los Angeles, there was a bus ride to the terminal for luggage pick up. My husband was at the terminal I normally come to, I had no way to contact him (Indian sim), no change for pay phone. A fellow passenger was merciful and let me use her phone send husband messages and eventually we met up. I would not use Eithad for India to USA for this reason only. The security and immigration preclearance sucks."
Cons: "the food .there is only one choice of meal there is delay time from AUH to beirut"
Pros: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"
Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"
Pros: "Never flying with Etihad before, but it really impressed me with its roomy aircraft, friendly crew, well-rounded and creative e-entertainment and fine food for its amazingly affordable price. I was somehow selected by the airplane for an upgrade flying to Bangkok which even elevate all of my experiences above. A great layover program definitely recommended!!!"
Cons: "Flight attendants in the economy class could be more attentive and walk around more frequently to check up passengers needs and passing out waters. Need more care to the food sanitation especially open water because I had later diarrhea after drinking it. Could be more organized for lining up different seating zones onto the flight, also seat arrangement is a bit off because bothe times I was asked to switch seats for couples and families w kids."
Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was not comfortable and looked dingy. Food was awful. Service was subpar."
Pros: "Absolutely LOVELY crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Bangkok to Abu Dhabi was amazing. Thank you! Everything was very good with except for the screen: on both planes, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. We got 5000 miles as a compensation.."
Cons: "The screen /server didn't work, but it was exceptional in experience."
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."
Pros: "Gets you where you need to be"
Cons: "Broken entertainment, very uncomfortable seats, a feeling that economy is not that important to them despite the fact tickets are not exactly economy! Horrible dated beige colours everywhere and dated planes"
Cons: "Customer service in Abu Dhabi was terrible. The flight itself was average at best. It was nothing like I expected. I will not fly Etihad again."
Pros: "I liked the service and ease of the whole process."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Very cramped plane (for a 787 Dreamliner)... though I am a bigger fellow, it must be said. The window seat was almost unbearable."
Pros: "Loved the amount of leg room in economy class. Also impressed with the number of entertainment options, especially the movies. The things provided in each seat (blanket, pillow, socks, etc) were very generous and nice as well."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful, fast to attend."
Cons: "Seats are small, decor is old. Bread was stale."
Cons: "Food was not good and too salty. And the saltiness made everyone thirsty and we were only offered one small cup of water at a time.Flight attendants were not friendly and didn't want to be bothered."
Pros: "The crew were good and accommodating, this was the only positive."
Cons: "the Food is the worst ever, i had better experience on an economy class with a budget airliner. on the 4 sectors i had with Etihad, it was breakfast menu no matter what time it was and it was the same choices which had to do with a form of eggs. i opted not to be served. the plane is old, seat is not functioning well, entertainment screen was not touch and had to be operated with the remote which was not working. really it was a huge disappointment. may be Etihad reserve their good stuff for the European and American sectors. I will never fly Etihad business unless I have no choice."
Cons: "the plane from Bangkok to abu dhabi was delayed which miss my flight from abu dhabi to Bahrain waiting over 9 hours to fly into Bahrain basically the flight sucked."
Pros: "Mostly punctual. Efficient staff service. Appropriate amount of food and drink served."
Cons: "On my journey to Abu Dhabi the flight departure was delayed by an hour. Otherwise it was efficient - and on my return journey. The seating is uncomfortable - lack of leg room. Tv monitors are a little dull so hard to see. Food isn't that nice."
Pros: "On time. Plane was clean. Security clearance was good."
Cons: "Food quantity and quality dropped to zero. Absolutely disappointed. I had travelled with etihad before. But this time I feel like not to travel with them again. In a 14 hour flight hardly one meal with 10 hour gap. Imagine if some one traveling with diabetic needs"
Pros: "all things like"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "TERRIBLE time management!! Missed the connecting flight by a few minutes and didn't get a connecting flight for 7 hours thereafter! There was absolutely time for us customers (who landed just 20 min later than expected) to make the connecting flight but we were told it was "too late" to board the other plane. This is extremely inconvenient! I got back to SFO 14 hours after the expected time! WHY don't you guys manage your connections better?? I am never flying Etihad again!"
Pros: "Quality Airline Excellent service Food was also great"
Pros: "The airline was amazing, food was on time and good. I'll be honest and say this was one of the better airlines I have flown."
Pros: "Good service. On time. Comfy lie-flat seats"
Cons: "On bok-aug night time flight rich Arab family with two nannies and 3 kids in b class. Kids did not have their own seats. Kids terrorized the entire cabin. Parents could not care less. Flight attendants helpless."
Pros: "i have nothing to like in the flight."
Cons: "no service you can call ten time if they come one time you lucky.very very roud crew and very discrimination place.also 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."
Pros: "Interior design.Soft warm colours condisive to a relaxing vibe."
Cons: "Only one toilet available for a cabin full of people waiting in line for longer than comfort requires.Entertainment needs an uplift.Drab and dreary."
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."
Pros: "Bording was fast"
Cons: "The frequent delays in departures The behavior of the canb staff was not good Specially with Arab and Asian people"
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Too cold in the airplane"
Cons: "The food was just ok here. And if you sit in the rear it is cold by the time or gets to you."
Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly with huge smiles on their faces. They are happy crew and make their clients happy pessengers. Great service :) We will fly with Etihad again."
Cons: "My screen doesn't work. Plane is bit old. Lavatory is smelly."
