Cons: "So nice and beautiful wearing also food is very good"

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."

Pros: "The seat is good. Entertainment is good."

Pros: "Entertainment service is, really, second to none."
Cons: "Old plane, cramped seats, wrong tissue paper (unusabke) in bathrooms, instead of paper towels, unremarkable food, served almost cold, rushed staff which spilled water on me (offered S$75 voucher as compensation), however did not take thebtime to listen to requests from passengers who spoke poor English, etc."

Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."

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: "Service was best in class"
Cons: "Planes are old. They never seem to use newer planes on the Brisbane leg."

Cons: "Old plane. Old in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."

Pros: "Consistency of service, efficient"
Cons: "Having to convert chair to bed and vice versa. Prefer one that can just go flat st touch of button"

Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."

Cons: "Seats are tight and hard"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and it was a smooth flight with a great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "However I don't eat pork & they ran out on chicken dishes so I missed out on a meal."

Pros: "The cabin attendants kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "The entertainment options were mediocre. Gluten-free meal may have contained traces of gluten."

Pros: "First class airline. Great flight, great service, and even the food is better than "not bad". Seriously, Singapore Air offers flights between the U.S. and Asia at very competitive rates, but never seems to skimp on customer care. A well-done experience from start to finish..."

Pros: "Really recommended . Wait alittle longer but i got a free tour go around Singapore ."

Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The in flight service was not as good as I remember the last few times I flew with Singapore. ."

Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."

Cons: "Everything was just great in their business class."

Cons: "Crew on flight back to philly not as helpful"

Pros: "Crew did a great job keeping the long 11hour flight manageable!"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

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: "qatar airways is able to accommodate my low sodium diet"
Cons: "headphone for entertainment did not work"

Cons: "Lots of noisy babies / young children"

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: "Quality aircrafts and entertainment."
Cons: "Service and helpfulness of attendants."

Pros: "Long flight, not so full, yet the crew was busy. Some green/trainee types waking us up to bring seat forward while serving meal to passengers on the rear row !! One said we dont serve wine with lunch - really! She did bring the wine 30 minutes later. But they were nice overall. Kept it clean. A+."
Cons: "Nice if they offered/served drinks before meals"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and seating arrangement was great traveling with 2 small children. Food was great and very tasty."
Cons: "more leg room and headphones that worked."

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

Pros: "The 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: "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."

Pros: "Spacious for economy, pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Nada!"

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and helpful in getting you settled on the flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit Hectic in Bangkok."

Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"
Cons: "If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike."

Pros: "The same as the flight from L.A to Doha, did not feel the time passing..."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about..."

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"

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: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Cleanliness"

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"

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."

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: "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: "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: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional. There was a air host by the name of Zaid or Zain and he was from Bombay. Really nice person and very easy to talk to."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."

Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"

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: "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."

Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Service was very good"

Cons: "Greedy airline! Qatar Airway is a hyper money hungry scammer who catches customers to rip money off from and creates a super tedious and painful experience for customers to ensure their private gains!!! Qatar Airway was delayed for more than an hour at the first departing airport! NO APOLOGIES OR MUCH EXPLANATION OF ANY KIND!! This is just how mindful and courteous they are. It sets the base tone of what this airline is made of. Then at the connecting airport, they closed the gate minutes before the departing time claiming the gate closes 20 minutes before the departing time, knowing they are leaving customers behind who has checked in and just haven’t arrived at the gate yet. And I arrived the gate minutes before the departure time. They can’t wait?! If so, why is it ok for them to delay for an hour without any explanation not to mention apology? Sure there are RULES. But remember what kind of airlines will have tons of rules that will guarantee you to fail?! Almost always the most shady, scammy and money hungry airlines who use ridiculous or ad hoc made RULES to set pitfalls for customers and ensure their profit gains by doing so!! Remember those European cheap airlines?!! They have tons of rules. You are set to fail even you have a smaller bags than some passengers who passed the gate without penalty. You are just unlucky – they set eyes to catch opportunities to rip you off whenever they can and whenever they are in the mood to be able to come up with lame excuses. With normal airlines, you realize your luggage which has been slightly overweight or over sized will be able to pass through without incurring any penalties. So any saying of rules are lame excuses and are shitty airlines’ lame excuses. The thing is good airlines will delay their flight a few minutes to wait for the passenger. If this is considered too needy of a requirement, then what happens next will shock you and reaffirm you how wrongful and shady this airline is. After missing the flight despite you arrived before the departing time, you have to purchase a full price ticket in order to fly again. As I declined to fly with them again since the ticket is too pricey and repurchased a ticket with another airline, they came up with an excuse that in order to release my luggage, they have to reissue a new flight ticket: so I have to pay both a luggage release fee and a flight ticket fee!!! What a gold digger Qatar Airway is haha. Luckily as I protested, they eventually didn’t make me to pay for a new flight ticket fee except a luggage release fee (really?). The sales office quoted a price of $250 to the luggage office. Then it took me a few minutes to get to the sales office. Strange thing happened, despite I mentioned the communication they are aware of, they are trying to find some “RULES” again to validate that I have to pay for an air ticket. I emphasized that is not the case. As I get irritated, guess what they did? They managed to come up with another excuse that in or"

Pros: "Crew courtesy."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "The Cabin crew was amazing, the ICE entertainment has many options of movies and programs, the flight was smooth to Singapore."
Cons: "Keep the good work."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Everything went very well. The staff were the nicest most helpful people ever. Great food too."

Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."

Pros: "Great crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Business class seems to have slipped..... A little more cramped and not quite as comfortable.... (might be me getting old"

Cons: "The seat recliners didn't work for 3 of our seats. The buttons were so hard and were not functional. 2 of the crew members were NOT welcoming while others were. Not expected from Emirates."

Pros: "Seats weren’t all that comfortable."
Cons: "Service and meals were good."

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."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good food friendly staff"

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"

Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"

Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."

Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

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: "Crew"
Cons: "Always spicy food"

Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"

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: "Second legs entertainment system was brilliant."
Cons: "To offer only one meal on a 7 hr flight seemed quite stingy, although the quality was very good."

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"

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: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

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."

Cons: "The in-flight crew was rude and aggressive. Also there was no communication or announcement regarding the delayed flight. Food was substandard. We've had much better experience with emirates in the past. Next time perhaps we will opt for another airline ."

Pros: "Everything is perfect."

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: "This was our first trip to Europe using Emirates airline. It was perfect. Low price, excallent meals & service aboard. All staff very professional & helpful. Check in at airports were a breeze. Will definitely use Emirates again & recommend to family & friends."

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."

Pros: "Treated superbly!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

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."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."

Pros: "Good crew. Great pilots."
Cons: "Food. Seat comfort."

Pros: "Yes!"
Cons: "Lower the price and keeping up the good work!!"

Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."

Cons: "This airline will cancel your flight and blame it on customs in the US - the truth is the flight was undersold and they did not want to travel with so few passengers."

Pros: "Cathay pacific is very professional. 100 times better than American Airlines in general"

Pros: "Seat was fine. Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Movies were a repeat of the outbound trip"

Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"

Pros: "Seating space for short people..not average height people"
Cons: "Wider space for seats"

Pros: "Good meal and serve more food"
Cons: "Line up to the plane shouldbe in short time"

Pros: "Polite crew, good food"
Cons: "Newer plane on flight from HKG to sFo"

Pros: "Cathay pacific is the best airline"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was amazing!!"

Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong. They refused to reissue my ticket with the correct spelling so I had to sweat out getting on board the airlines and now I have to sweat it out today because they again refused to reissue the ticket"

Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"

Cons: "Flight was suspended I was not notified before I went to the airport"

Pros: "The food was great on Cathay Pacific and the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Should serve more food"

Pros: "Staff was terrific. On time. That’s most important."
Cons: "Seats were not great. Don’t recline properly. Food Very salty. No WyFy. Issue with point allocations and issue entering business Lounge. Purchased membership for this purpose . Was downgraded on my Marco Polo Membership. An error by the airlines. Won’t fly again with this airlines as a result."

Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."

Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."

Pros: "I took the economy premium class. It was great. Seats very comfortable. Dinner was great."
Cons: "Breakfast - the omelette was not done, but other than that if was good. The dim-sam was good."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"

Cons: "I didn't like their foods specially fish & chicken made me nausea"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Service, self service snacks, attendant never came for anything and crew was rude, passed out customs form when exiting plane"

Pros: "Uneventful but good. Lots of new movies"

Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."

Pros: "Great service and smiley staff"
Cons: "the fact that it's a 14 hour flight, i hope someone invents a faster plane soon."

Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."

Pros: "Great crew, very professional. Food good. Easy boarding. Staff at check in were great fixing the problem of my seating."
Cons: "I had booked my seats online, however nothing was in place when checking in."

Cons: "The system was unsatisfied by me, they made my name wrong on The ticket and say that was a flaut to me and I have to bear the extra cost to onboard. I never use it and recommend everybody not to use it anymore."

Pros: "I liked the movie selection they had for entertainment—many choices. Most of the staff were very friendly, but there was a bit of a language barrier which made it a little difficult to ask for something. They are also attentive, so if you press your call button, you don’t have to wait half an hour until someone helps you."
Cons: "Most of the meals were awful. I barely ate on the flights (except the dessert), but how good can airplane food be really... The seats are pretty tight and uncomfortable. They are too upright, making it very difficult to sleep. On one of their planes, the seats didn’t recline at all. I recommend paying a bit more for extra leg room ($150) or flying business or first class even (for long flights)."

Pros: "As usual, the crew was great and the planes and pilots are great also. CP is always punctual, as well."
Cons: "I'm 6-4 , so I enjoy any extra space I can get. For this reason, I like the CP planes that seem to have more space than competitors. However, when the person in front of me reclines for the ENTIRE flight, my screen is too low to watch, I cannot use my try to eat and its like having someone laying in your lap.........it should not be allowed ( reclining)."

Pros: "Great crew and spacey seating."

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants."

Pros: "I received more than expected"

Pros: "Entertainment choices, wine, charger"
Cons: "Food Choice and Alcoholic choices"

Cons: "Got stomach ache after eating the food."

Pros: "All the Cathay staff members I dealt with were great! At the airport they were very helpful in getting me onto another flight, as my flight had been delayed, which in turn would make me miss my second flight. All the cabin crews were very friendly. I think that the people that work for Cathay make up for a lot of what Cathay lacks in other aspects."
Cons: "There was not enough information about the flight delays and the causes for these delays. It was a little stressful and rushed as my layover in HK was quite short. The boarding process could be a lot better if people were boarded according to rows. Food on most Cathay flights in general was pretty disappointing. It would also be great to have wi-fi on the flights. Especially considering how long some of the flights can be."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and the food was not good"

Pros: "Overall is good."

Pros: "Airline staff so helpful and nice, sets had loads of space, I was seated at the back of the plane when they ran out of meals before our row, I said it's fine I'll just have bread rolls but she got me their staff meals yum, air hostess was so lovely"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Unlimited drink options throughout duration of flight; great selection of moviesmotr"
Cons: "Seat layout not very spacious; only 2 full meals offered on a 14 hr flight"

Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "They ran out of the most popular food by the time they served us, and we were half way!"

Pros: "Comfortable seating, good tasting meals, and excellent service!"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty...Given the quick flight change over it was not an issue. That's my only complaint!"

Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"

Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."

Cons: "I had a flight from ZHR to HKG and further with another Airline to Shanghai. After 8 hours delay, I was not rebooked to another flight to Shanghai. Reason: We are only responsible to bring you to HKG - not further. Thanks a lot"

Pros: "Seats are relatively comfortable and there are a lot of free snacks."
Cons: "We had trouble checking in online due to a hyphenated last name- tried to call the airline a couple times and everyone was polite but did not help us. We kept getting shunted to someone else and in the end no one did anything and we got stuck in terrible seats separated by many rows. Still better than United though."

Pros: "Everything was good I didn't have any complaints about the service or flight time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Best meal service ever, my husband never eats airplane food but gobbled up the dinner and the breakfast served. Seats were comfortable, beverages were readily available, one of the best airlines in the world."
Cons: "Didn't have slippers, only socks. Slightly inconvenient having to put shoes back on to run to the restroom, which sometimes have wetness from God knows what."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "nothing stands out to be improved"

Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The Seats were really old and no new movies"

Pros: "787 no one cannot love it"
Cons: "Maybe bigger seats with better privacy"

Pros: "Seat are too narrow, leg room was ok, plane temperature was too warm."
Cons: "Flight take off was delayed by almost an hour."

Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."

Pros: "Nice crew, seat reclined a lot, great food"
Cons: "Bus gate, economy passengers dumping their bags in the overhead bins reserved for business class, really sick passenger coughing their lungs out,"

Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating while the flight was quick and carefree"
Cons: "Though it was a very short flight, refreshments were served. These were a kind gesture, but the effort was worth more than the items served. Next time, just drinks would be great!"

Pros: "Service and professionalism of the Etihad Crew"

Cons: "Disasterous! The flight departed 3 hours late because of some mechanical problem. So missed connections in Abu Dhabi, although Ethihad could have held a later connection to BKK for just about 20 minutes for us to board. The huge hassle getting lodging from the airline to take an onward flight the next day. Your staff would not accommodate us at the airport hotel so we could avoid the need to obtain a visa, which takes a minimum of 3 hours wait. We finally gave up on the visa and decided to just stay up overnight at the airport. That caused one kind Ethihad staff to finally make issues us an authorization for the hotel at the airport. We would never fly your airline again."

Cons: "Smaller leg room than other airlines"

Pros: "Aircraft was very good"
Cons: "Food very poor, staff mediocre"

Pros: "All the hospitality and entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The holy Quran I listen to"

Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Having to wait 5-6 hours due to missed flight back to NY"

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Food was just very normal and lack variety. Should provide more options."

Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "There was not enough non veg food onboard and no choices. Everyone was served vegetarian towards the end. They served lunch in the beginning of the flight and then I was literally starving after 5 or 6 hours until a fellow passenger told me they had some snacks at the back. There was no communication on that."

Pros: "I thought 11 thousand dollars for 2 of us to fly was way to dear business class there was not a lot of room. Was my own fault I thought I was going on a380 but I woukd think twice about booking again for that price not worth it."

Cons: "Small seats-space limited."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"

Cons: "Since our custom and emigration checking was in Abu Dhabi, in Chicago, the flight used a domestic terminal. For our final leg of the flight, we had to haul all six pieces of luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 3. Then we were told that our American Airlines flight from Chicago to Kalamazoo is not a valid one. So we were booked to a different flight 12 hours later. We had to stay in Chicago for 12 hours on our own. Neither Etihad nor American Airlines provide any support for that time period in Chicago. Since it was Etihad ticket, According to international norm, Etihad should take the responsibility for this problem and compensated passengers."

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"

Pros: "Good time Baggage smooth service"
Cons: "Food Crew service"

Cons: "Salad that comes with Vegeterian meal."

Pros: "1) It was not a full flight which was a plus. 2) the flight attendants from Abu Dhabi to Dahka were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "1) the food was not good. 2) the plane was older. 3) the exit seats are right by the bathrooms"

Pros: "Airline."
Cons: "Great staff"

Pros: "The neatness and entertainment system"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "The worst airline experience overall. AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. I actually got yelled at by an air hostess because I accomodated an elderly couple to sit togather and I sat on next seat over. Not a common sense airline. The Abu Dhabi airport was hot as hell. Yes, inside the airport terminal was super hot, close to 90 degrees.... Emirates is far superior Airline than this."

Cons: "They only had vegeterian options for the most part even when the expectation is that they would have at least some meat choices. They ran out of the meat options quickly. The crew was very nice though and arranged for a chicken meal at the end"

Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"

Cons: "long flight and no food because of short supply like they said to us"

Pros: "The flight itself was actually just fine- comfortable even in economy."
Cons: "My bag was delayed in Abu Dhabi. On its return, my laptop- that I had been forced to check- had been stolen... Not necessarily Etihad's fault, but so far their customer support has been almost non-existent."

Pros: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"
Cons: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"

Pros: "entertainment helped me forget the hell i was in"
Cons: "1. seats - they have done an excellent job of cramping as many seats as possible with minimal leg space 2. food - smelly distasteful and disgusting. i think that sums it up 3. staff - unfriendly, there was a attending guy who thought he owns the airline and behaving as if everyone on the flight was his slave. bottom line - my first and last flight with etihad - i'll pay few hundred bucks more and take another airline next time"

Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"

Pros: "The bathrooms were stinking after a couple of hours and the flush stopped working. Otherwise, good food, attentive staff"

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class, which was nice."
Cons: "Re food, I had salmon....it was very dry and tasted quite processed. There was no dessert, even in business class."

Cons: "The crew needs to smile"

Pros: "new aircraft"
Cons: "Poor selection of beverages, poor selection of entertainment(same package 5 weeks after our outbound flight) service very average, attitude of attendants very average."

Cons: "The flight is a 777 or 787. This is the flight has cramped up legroom in economy. It's a 17 hour flight and the aircraft is not comfortable at all in economy. The food is a hot or a miss. They have 3 items on the menu but chances are by the time they get to you they run out of the non veg options and you are stuck eating dal and pulav. Flight attendants on the flight were okay, not super helpful if you are traveling in economy"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"

Cons: "Last two flights with Virgin Australia (not Etihad) were very late. Va decided to cancel my booking on my international connection even though I could make it. VA DID ALL THEY COUKD TO MAKE SURE I MISSED MY CONNECTION."

Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."

Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"

Cons: "Food. Not served according to the menu. Kochi to Abu Dhabi -vegetarian. Abu Dhabi to Chicago __vegetarian no options. -Vegetarian food not tasty.At last before landing in Chicago some non veg."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
