The crew was very courteous and helpful, great experience!

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.

Pros: "It’s an old plane, so the seats are those older yet more comfortable type of seats!"
Cons: "Better service from the crews."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The business seats at B777-300ER was very uncomfortable for a long distance trip with duration of 14,5 hours."
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "The willingness to provide a better quality service by the entire cabin crew and improved food quality."
Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Meal was disappointing. Beef was overcook and hard. Service quality is just okay."
Cons: "We missed the smile and quality service liked before. Food quality is just okay. Timeliness for departure/arrival was excellent."
Pros: "I always like Singapore Airlines. They should continue to be the best."
Cons: "Some flexibility to select food choices even if we book the flight in short notice."
Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Change the food menu, boring with the same menu"
Cons: "Luggages did not arrive with the flight as it should be. It got lost in Sydney from Queenstown on flight SQ 6683 operated by Virgin Australia (VA 162)."
Pros: "Perfect timing"
Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"
Pros: "Singapore has always been my preferred airline because they give excellent service, excellent food and the crew are very polite. aircraft new and comfortable, I finally had a flatbed"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "Nothing specific"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."

Pros: "The service was great! The entertainment was abundant. The food was tasty. No complaints at all!"
Pros: "I love flying by singapore airlines! Firstly because its direct flight from home plus service on sq is always impeccable. Plus i can easily order a singapore sling and a campari spritz, which is so nice while watching a movie :)"
Cons: "I didnt really like the food this time and entertainment on the way back was so sad! No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"
Pros: "Onboard Crew was great. I sympathize that they have to rush a service on a 1hr 20min flight with turbulance."
Cons: "I have started taking SQ instead of budget airlines hoping for good service and on time travel. However, both times travelling from SQ from jakarta was delayed. Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare. Further, when I wsa travelling to Jakarta - none of the inflight entertainment was working. So it has been disappointing."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "nothing much"
Cons: "One stop would have been better"
Pros: "Emirates provides good seating even in economy class,with good entertainment so makes the 8hr flt more pleasant."
Cons: "Food wasn't overly great."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "I had better experience with Emirates before...we had to wait ages for our food but maybe because we were the last one on the list. Food was nice and crew friendly."
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Cons: "Services of crew very poor specially onboard services in business class"
Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"
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."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Cons: "I paid extra to have an exit row for this long flight. Just before taxiing a man moved seats into the exit row seat next to me (not paying for it like I had) and was intrusive and sprawling out over into my space the entire very long flight. I am extremely unhappy about this and the willingness to allow him to move seats that I had to pay extra for and then left me zero comfort on the flight."
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: "Entertainment; Food is ok"
Cons: "Despite premium price, seat selection not available unless you pay extra; Family of 4 dispersed and given only middle seats except one aisle seat;"
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: "a vast improvement on the flydubai flight that took me there"
Pros: "The flight was excellent and the service was awesome I can say that I liked the flight and it was comfortable Thanks flydubai"
Cons: "baggage policing"
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: "Overall very good"
Pros: "Seating and hospitality"
Cons: "The Crew was very inexperienced and had difficult time in managing the passengers. The food also below par!"
Pros: "Nice trip"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "A lot of newly released movies to choose from. Time goes a lot faster if you can watch three two hour movies back to back. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Online check in could have an easier option to request a special meal. I have a mild wheat allergy. I tried to call the Dubai office after 9AM before my return trip but, nobody answered. I just skipped the pizza and I was fine."
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: "Ok"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
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: "Excellent highly diverse crew. Good food. Very comfortable. Fantastic entertainment selection."
Cons: "Expensive. Great to have wifi for nominal fee but problems getting and maintaining connection."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Good movie selection Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No internet Food was not tasty"
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: "lovely crew"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Before we can reserve Child food while selecting the seats now no more, can this option be available again."
Pros: "It was a nice flight"
Pros: "Love it and I had a middle seat !!!!"
Cons: "The food was good v and excellent service and entertainment"
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."
Cons: "There was no wheelchair available at Dubai airport."
Cons: "Food menu must change. Vegetarian Indian food menu is boring."
Pros: "Flight still arrived reasonably on time despite being delayed. Service is excellent!"
Cons: "I booked flight for my husband, however, the credit card authorization process took long and he missed his flight. Hence, the next cheapest available flight was July 3rd. I ended up having to rebook his flight via Air Canada. The payment was processed and accepted immediately. I figured 7 hours was sufficient time to process a payment. It was not. My husband is now incurring additional charges and is missing employment in Canada. I'm looking for some compensation. I have never encountered this wait time when purchasing an airline ticket. Your site/app has great reviews but you need to work on credit card approvals. Thanks for your time and I look forward to being compensated."

I needed to change my flight and your company made it extremely difficult. The customer service for kayak was completely UNSAT.

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "yes."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enjoyable flight"
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
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"
Cons: "Friendly and wellmennerd team."
Cons: "The flight was excellent and the service was impeccable. The attention that they gave all the passengers including myself was excellent. Would Recomend to take Qatar from Bombay to Miami"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful"
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
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: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."
Cons: "I was given incorrect date and missed my flight. I had to spend 750 £ and buy a flight from another airline to get home"
Pros: "The service was super and the food was delicious even the seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was super"
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable and food suited me"
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: "Excellent seats..."
Pros: "The crew were nice and very helpful. Vegeterian meal was great"
Cons: "It was cold almost for everyone and everyone used blanket, some people asked for second blanket."
Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"
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: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Pros: "The service on Qatar airways was excellent as always. The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants provided a 5 star service throughout the flight."
Cons: "The playlist for the movies was old and needs to be cycled more often to allow the passenger greater selection. There were an adequate selection of tv shows however these were limit d to only a few titles."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. Food was less than mediocre."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The Qatar crew was great and the entertainment was on point."
Cons: "That my departure times were 1 to 2 hours earlier than what was on my electronic ticket, if I hadn't checked on the airport website, I would've missed all my flights!!"
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."
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
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: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
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."

Just average

They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"

Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"

Immigration form was very small lettered and too much to read for two answer. Many had to sear on the floor to fill it.

Cons: "No screens or headphones on board, you had to download an app on your phone and use your own earphones to watch a very limited amount of films/tv shows. Very tight seats, not reclining enough. It was like being on a low cost flight but for 5 hours. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Good trip"
Pros: "La atención es excelente y la comida a bordo muy buena. El abordaje y entrega de maletas sin problema."
Pros: "Wonderful trip"
Cons: "A little rough air, but all was good"
Pros: "Crew excellent,food excellent,was very surprised after reading some bad reviews on the net."
Cons: "Having pyjama to wear will have equalised Qatar business class."
Pros: "The food was amazing with good And comfortable air conditioning. Cleanliness was maintained as well."
Cons: "The food serving was late it could be more manageable. The leg space is also not comfortable. Also the some seat needs to be repaired as the recliners not working."
Pros: "Good crew Seats good"
Cons: "Earphones plug difficult to fit Toilet cleanliness not adequate on occasion"
Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "All service and cresws are friendly"
Cons: "Just keep it up"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a bit early. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Check-in process could be better. I was in the baggage drop off line which was much shorter line yet it took a long time to get to the agent. Need more agents at the counter. Boarding could be more structured and efficient. Boarding by zone was not followed. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Not much to enjoy. Food was bread with hummus with cheese(?) pretty plain."
Cons: "Seats were very slim and limited leg room. Balkhead did not offer much storage. Cumbersome to get in and out of easily. One of the poorest trip in my 63 country travels. Would not recommend Etihad to my friends."
Pros: "The food and the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Good air craft friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay in check in more than 2 hours.which was due to system issues.needed lot of followup in spite of all documents"
Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"
Cons: "Food served during dinner"
Pros: "The food is not standard airline food and deliciously reflects the Middle East."
Pros: "The flight itself was good when it eventually left."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was another Virgin flight leaving Launceston at the same time so the lounge was very busy. Our flight was late while the other was on time and there were no announcements that our flight was delayed. The screen over the gate also did not show our flight details at any stage, even when it eventually boarded.. I'm familiar with Launceston airport so it was okay, but for someone not familiar, especially an international visitor, it would have been confusing as to which flight was which especially as no announcement or visual display was given that our flight was running late."
Pros: "Crew are great. Food good. Entertainment selection pretty good."
Cons: "I don't know why but on all Etihad flights I've been on so far (4), I found the seats very uncomfortable. There seems to be no padding on them and hence they are uncomfortable especially on long haul flights."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive stewardesses. Beautiful too"
Cons: "The internet connection "Wi-Fly" is very weak. Data rates are outrageous. $4.95 plan is basically good for 5 minutes, $11.95 plan maybe lasts 10 minutes. Very disappointing"
Cons: "No food and crew was so rude and Lahore airport crew not only rude also nasty"
Pros: "I like the treatment given in the flight from Dubai to JFK and vice versa"
Cons: "The Connecting flight from Dubai to New Delhi was full of chaos. You should consider females seat priority while allocating the seats. I was so uncomfortable sitting with a person who was drinking whisky repeatedly and also please take care of the smell in the aircraft , it was really bad in the flight from Dubai to N Delhi Juice should have some more options"
Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."
Pros: "i arrived safely"
Cons: "Even thiugh i paid for first class , i was made to wait for 30 minutes while economy passengers boarded. Many of them arrived after me. Other first class flights allow you to eat when you want. not this one. i slept through their mealtime - no food for me. the seats also do not recline fully. Since the treatment is not first class, might as well fly economy on this one."
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: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "The whole ambiance and atmosphere"
Cons: "The length of the flight!!!"
Pros: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Cons: "When there is a connecting flight from Domestic to international, Domestic is letting us in without any restrictions on Cabin luggage but in middle of journey in Chicago they have really troubled all the passengers, mainly they haven't checked the baggage's untill we have boarded the flight though everyone is there before 2 hrs of the and i personally asked they if my bags needs any new tags but just before they pulled everyone from the line and screwed us. which is really bad."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "THere was no air conditioning! Seemed like the pilot tirned on heat. And the whole plane smelled."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing and no one is responding to number presented on the sheet in Chicago, very bad. Please get my baggage to me and be kind to the customers in aftermath of the services."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Cons: "Luggage claim process"
Cons: "Nothing much of dislike"
Pros: "A380 planes. What is not to like. Wide economy seats. A little glitchy entertainment system but over all comfortable flight."
Cons: "Horrible and disorganized service crew. Went without food for 2 of three service seasons as they forgot a whole section to service. Had to repeatedly ask and in one case finally got something to eat 40 mins later. Poor sequence of beverage and food service."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "The crew was not helpful in keeping us informed about the delay, or in helping us make our connections."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I buy a ticket through etihad website, I expect etihad service, even if it was operated by other airline. Air Serbia managed to loose my luggage on a direct flight between AD and Belgrade, and the plane was very old, without entertainment."
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Cons: "16 hours flights is too tough for me."
Cons: "First leg with Air Seychelles was comparatively not so brilliant; to be fair it was late in the evening and perhaps the cabin crew thought we wanted to be left alone, but the service was not as proactive as the second leg on Etihad's wonderful A380"
Cons: "The crew members inside the flight were unfriendly and apparently rude!!!"
Pros: "Flight got deleted, no intertaimente, no food or snacks. Maybe because is a very short flight ?"
Cons: "The attitude of the staff on the time of boarding in."
Pros: "The only positive was that it followed the time and the crew was good."
Cons: "I paid 22 bucks for wifi services and it never worked one bit. The crew bluntly told me that they can't do much about it. I would definitely travel via a different airline primarily due to the fact that the wifi wasnt working and the leg space is terrible for an 18 hour flight."
