Food was not right

Kayak will not refund tickets for my traveler who’s passport had time issue. Never again kayak

Sandwich could be better :)

I felt there were rules for some and different ones for others in the same class which I felt was unfair even though it didn’t necessarily affect me.Water (especially) and snacks needed to be brought round more often especially for people that don’t sleep. I found all the staff really pleasant.

Liked the boarding process. Seats and leg-room adequate.

Everything was excellent

Everything

All good other than departing 1 hr late!!

The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.

Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."
Pros: "Amazing crew. On-stop flight. All premium economy for reasonable price."
Cons: "Silk air"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."
Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "Excellent service, made a very long flight very pleasant and enjoyable."
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Cons: "The toilets were a little unsanitary."
Pros: "Great service and very very comfy"
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "I do like Singapore airlines and all the rest of the airline stuff apart from the entertainment system was great!!! (Unfortunately since there was no USB or seat power my iPad fairly quickly ran out of juice...)"
Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."
Pros: "all of SQ"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Interior felt dated given all the awards the SQ has received for its planes and service, but everything was functional. Overlooking the interior, flight was superb. Very happy."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"
Pros: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "More leg room than other airlines, superb service and excellent food!"
Pros: "The seats seem to have more leg room, food was actually good, and the staff was delightful."
Cons: "It was a 17 hour flight, but they made it bearable."
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "old aircraft, no usb or power point charging. choice of 5 movies"
Pros: "everything are okey"
Cons: "The crew was rude when asking me to window shed."
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "We started taxing 15 minutes before the departure time. This is great !"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."
Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."
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."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Had good experience on Bangalore sfo return journey. In particular your ground staff and aboard the flight were so warm and receptive. Only thing is that seating in the economy class could a little more better. Thnx SA"
Pros: "Good service and entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight from Singapore to Mumbai was of a lower standard."
Cons: "Too hot in plane Food really late, 1h after special meals Entertainment system archaic, age of plane All isles seats gone as soon as checkin open"
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."
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."
Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."
Cons: "The flight I was supposed to take from Nanjing to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Airlines in the afternoon didn't exist so I had to take a morning flight. Was given no warning and had to check on my own. The Singapore Airlines flight was on time though."
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor"
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"
Pros: "The crew were lovely - friendly and polite!"
Cons: "The delayed departure- but I truly understand that it was beyond the control of the company as the delay was weather related."

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The corn chips!"
Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"
Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."
Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."
Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"
Pros: "Inflight magazine was just the right length for the flight time"
Cons: "Cookie was stale and coffee was nothing special... but that’s typical of all airlines"
Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"
Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."
Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "We flew with Air New Zealand a few times during our trip and every flight was absolutely perfect. Staff was nice and helpful, the cabin was comfortable and everything from checking in to walking off the plane was easy."
Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything was quite nice."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."

Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"
Cons: "not the seats I selected in October"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Seats were comfortable and roomy. Food was delicious served by real professionals."
Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Cons: "Luggage claim in chennai airport is horrible"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."

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."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."

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 flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
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: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
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: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Tons of movies!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
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?"
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
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: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "F"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
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: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "We arrived."
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
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: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
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."

No music available on screen

This is one of the worst flights I have ever had. I started my trip on Saturday 6 July 2022 from MELB to LA. My flight got cancelled twice and without notice. My final destination is NY and it is Monday 8th July and I am still stuck in LA airport as they haven’t sort out my flights

Flight delayed. Food ok bordering on mediocre. Pleasant attendants.

EVERYTHING

Easy flight and smooth journey. Some delays in boarding, but were made up in flight.

Pros: "The crew could be less curt and more engaging. Coming from Guest Services in hospitality, leisure and tourism it is obvious that body language and sincere engagement stands out. That wasn’t the case for the Qantas flight."
Cons: "I was unable to checkin or select seats. Understandably this is governed by immigration laws and not airlines but on three attempts I was able to pay for the seats without a receipt only to learn later that the charge did not go through. A little bit of transparency never costs anyone."
Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, the movie selection was good."
Cons: "More space in seats"
Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Pros: "It was a routine flight and everything was OK but not fantastic"
Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Crew was professional and efficient."
Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled and we were not notified by justfly. Just fly also accepted the flights on our behalf so it mean we couldn't chose the new flights"
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."
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "enjoyed the newer planes"
Cons: "less use of single use plastics. air canada could become a pioneer and use compostavle plastics or better yet the new paper box water bottles!"
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Cons: "on line check in more difficult than others"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "4 flights in 2 weeks Melbourne Cairns return & Melbourne Coolangatta return. Great staff induction from Qantas all flights were excellent"
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."
Cons: "Flight was late departing."
Cons: "1. Food option ran out quickly 2. The row I was sitting in had limited leg room (61)"
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "Great service, flight was not packed and had an exit row to myself."
Cons: "Delayed by a half hour. Better than the 2 hours the last time I took this flight 3 weeks ago."
Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."
Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Delayed departure as usual unsuitable aircraft (737) for 5 hour flight. It's time Qantas steps up and puts a proper aircraft on the Singapore Perth flight. Even the budgets are more comfortable that this."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"
Pros: "Our flight with qantas was fantastic. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Premium economy makes a difference on a 15 he flight."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Passengers were given "meal" vouchers for terminal restaurants but they weren't valid on alcohol (which was needed after 4 hours of waiting!) Boarding was chaotic with everyone anxious to GO! Crew was cranky."
Cons: "I was right by the toilets"
Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
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: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Cons: "Movie choices are not as many as Qatar or Emirates business class."
Pros: "Nothing different to any other flight. No stand-out attributes."
Cons: "Filthy tray table. Felt unhygienic to even eat in my seat but I had no choice"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable economy seating, great crew"
Cons: "Food was ordinary."

Very good

The flight was a disaster in all aspects, was treated like an animal. I paid 2k for this ticket, felt suffocated even asked if I could get an upgrade to business class but got denied. Never ever flying with etihad again. Been a valued customer for years. Never again.

The Etihad ground staff didn’t communicate about new flight timings in bengaluru & didn’t escort or help passengers when we are stuck in security. Other airlines took responsibility to escort passengers. The food was good AUH- BLR; AUH- WAS . Others like WAS- AUH & BLR- AUH. Food was horrible. Etihad looting money in name baggage policy. No communication to passengers about cabin baggage policy.

Fare difference was really bad almost double than my regular fare never fly again

Cons: "In terms of comfort, Etihad offers a good level!"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "The seat 21A was absolutely horrid inducing claustrophobia due to limited space all around on a full flight long delayed on ground after taxiing for departure."
Cons: "Etihad needs to be more sensitive of passenger comfort and avoid being so stingy with economy class seats (21A)"
Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "The bus took forever to reach the plane. Food quality was poor"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Please stop overbooking...."
Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "pretty simple flight, not too packed so I could spread out a bit, slept like a baby really -- super safe flight, I love that"
Cons: "the food, as mentioned above -- meh, you guys are better than the others but still, not so great"
Pros: "Head rest helped me get sleep in economy section"
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Cons: "No food I ask three time for coffee and tea still not get it Staff so rude I don’t know why staff was rude if you don’t have food let us know not get rude ."
Pros: "Nothing much really!"
Cons: "No entertainment options. Late departure & when we arrived early the local ground services company did not expect us & we were delayed at the gate for 30 minutes before disembarking!"
Pros: "Customer service very good"
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: "The food was not good. I had ordered low calorie and I got uncooked chicken and uncooked vegetables"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Crew were awesome, food was amazing"
Pros: "All the bags were received safe and undamaged."
Pros: "first class service. Extra blanket, mealtime is anytime, seats recluned fully"
Cons: "no first class kit with socks. My feet get cold on the plane and the socks would have helped"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Only thing decent was the boarding."
Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "It was a great flight. I got an exit seat, and the air host, Dylan, was very helpful."
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: "Nothing!! Bad food Bad seats Ride flight attendant Bad service!"
Cons: "Everything Flight attendant was very rude did not serve with any courtesy She took away my food plate while I was still eating!! without even asking g me if she could take it away. Did not serve me the full course of the meal ! This is the service they provided me in Business Class! Please teach your flight attendants proper etiquette towards its passengers the paying customers! I am very unhappy with the overall service!!"
Cons: "Head will hit the wall when using sink in toilet"
Pros: "Food service and service generally"
Cons: "Long layover and delay"
Cons: "Leg room not good"
Pros: "Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private. Crew were very attentive; and supportive when discovered a friend was booked in business on the same flight."
Cons: "Etihad no longer providing pajamas to change into for long haul flights when you'll inevitably be sleeping. There's no bedding provided to make the hard seats more comfortable for sleeping. Need more storage for personal items."
Pros: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "The e box entertainment options are very limited in terms of movies and tv series"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The leg room on the economy seats is good"
Cons: "The entertainment options are not enough"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Food could have been spaced out more evenly during the flight. First meal came out like 3 or 4 hours into the flight, second meal came out like 8 or 9 hours after that"
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "It was such a relief to leave India. Abu Dhabi was a clean and modern airport and it was clear that Etihad had a major role in this. The gate was busy, but everything was smooth and accommodating. Boarded my flight and slept in the clouds for an easy 9 hr flight."
Cons: "I am unable to eat meat or bread(gluten). There was a meatless option, but it was all bread. It would be nice to have some mixed nuts and an extra piece of fruit. Dates would've been great!"
Cons: "They ran out of food (lamb and chicken) and served veg dish for both the main courses!!"
Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "I like their perfect schedule."
Cons: "I don't get non veg option. They don't provide blanket at my seat."
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "We did not get our bags (total of 6 bags) - It was extremely difficult with an infant and a toddler to manage without clothes and meds. Staff was extremely arrogant during the flight, not helpful at all. Boarding process was a huge disaster - no planning, no zone boarding and unnesessary panic. Lastly food, worst frozen food. The portions were too small and very limited service. We won't use ETIHAD again."
Cons: "The website does not allow updating of food preferences. I tried multiple times to update my preferences but it did not work well. Veg options are a must for flights originating from India as there are several passengers who prefer veg meals. However, this was not well attended to in the flight."
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: "The service"
Pros: "Food , service"
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived early. This is so important when we have connecting flights that are about one hour away from arrival time."
