The crew and food were great - the ground crew in Zurich was extremely slow in helping guests.
clean n seat legroom was spacious
Pros: "The crew were friendly, helpful, and attentive. I'd love to fly with them all the time"
Cons: "The business class seat felt a bit claustrophobic when in lie flat mode"
Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Pros: "The service and food were good."
Cons: "As a petite person I find the seats in economy class small and cramped. When passengers in front of you recline their seat backs, there is very little room to move, making it difficult to get up and out of your seat."
Pros: "The meals were awesome, flight great!"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "The food was great and the other flight attendants were kind and understanding."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was of an older demographic who was extremely rude to me and not accommodating at all to myself, my husband, or my children. She had an attitude and seemed irritated by my questions, concerns, and overall being there. We had an issue with seating and no seats together with our 4 and 7 year old."
Cons: "Seats too close when leaning back"
Pros: "I loved that every seat had a pillow, blanket and head-phones waiting. The movie selection was great, too.The service was excellent. Love having metal utensils, and not plastic."
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but when passengers recline their seat backs all the way, it's very difficult for the person behind. Two vegetarians meals were offered - which is ok, but I was unsure if either had sufficient protein; plus the side dishes were all starches."
Cons: "comfort, leg room, very crowded, overhead space jammed"
Cons: "The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets."
Pros: "Good food and beverage options. Many movie and television selections."
Cons: "The seats were too close especially when reclined. The lady next to me got into an argument 3 times with the man behind her and no one assisted the situation. The second security check needs a better signifier that it was done. It almost made me and another man miss our flight. Miserable attendants"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. The flight crew did everything alright."
Cons: "Connecting flights. All lies, no cooperation. Not a small airport as it takes nearly half an hour to get to Gate E. Too few characters allowed to explain all we went thru."
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Pros: "Liked nothing. Stewards were no help. Seating was extremely tight. I am disabled and use a small travel scooter. They removed the batteries even though they are not lithium or spillable. I called months in advance with all specifications and still they were clueless. We will never fly Swiss again. I am disabled and received no help. They removed the batteries of my scooter and we had to carry them on our lap. I had to tell them to put the batteries back in the scooter. They failed in every facet."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful - super friendly and kind. Food was shockingly great. Very impressed."
Pros: "The view out the window."
Cons: "Delayed, no leg room. No refeshments."
Pros: "Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was great. Easy boarding."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was very good. I also think having fresh fruit available in between meals is one of the most appealing things about SWISS."
Cons: "For some reason, one of the air hostesses refused to let me use the restroom. For over five hours I tried to use the restroom and she kept yelling at me to sit back in my seat, in spite the fact that several other people were using the restroom and several other people were up and moving about, she singled me out and wouldn't let me get up without harassing me. Eventually I appealed to another one of the flight crew who allowed me to urinate, but it was over five hours I had to pee and was inexplicably not allowed to."
Pros: "Swiss Air is great."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Everthing was great!!"
Pros: "Everything except the seats."
Pros: "Even though the flight was very short, the team moved quickly through the cabin ensuring everybody had a drink and a snack. They looked quite concerned when I turned down the pretzel sandwich, so I accepted and found it quite good! Also, team made sure my parent with reduced-mobility had a good boarding and transfer experience."
Cons: "As always, seats are narrow. And the "neighbors" were normal-sized. The usual struggle for elbow "air-space" occurred."
Pros: "Nice staff, very friendly"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi, could use more comfortable seating"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Easy check in. Crew efficient and personal attention."
Cons: "space at my feet!"
Cons: "While I was on line to board, a flight assistant came to me and asked me if I was flying by myself. When I said yes. they upgraded me to business class. I boarded the plane and took my seat. Shortly before taking off, another flight attendant came to me, told me they made a mistake, and sent me back to my original economy seat (while I was holding my new business boarding pass that they gave me). When I told them they should remedy somehow their mistake, they said they did not have any other extra seat in business and that there was nothing they could do. They did not apologize. They were quite unprofessional and rude. I fly often and I have never experienced something so unprofessional and rude. Alitalia is far better than Swissair in terms of professionalism and of politeness. I will always discourage anyone from flying Swissair. Worst company ever."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Very attentive to children at boarding and in-flight."
Pros: "Loved the smoked salmon!!"
Cons: "No wifi or tv"
Cons: "Paucity of games that might appeal to non children."
Pros: "Every time I go back to Greece I always fly Swiss. Always on time, good times, clean, and helpful crew."
Pros: "Service and snacks are great considering really short flight"
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Pros: "Just a comment that the flight is short and I understand that the company does not provide any food except for chicolate"
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."
Pros: "Same as on top"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Comfortable business class seats, much better than the updated Lufthansa footsie leg rests. Attentive staff. Puzzles for the children"
Cons: "Still no wifi on the Swiss Air A330. No live tv streaming. No big deal on red eye, but frustrating on long daytime flights."
Pros: "Lots of snack service and real dinner's! So much yummm"
Cons: "Boarding was kinda weird and confusing."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efiicient."
Cons: "Only negative was not related to the flight. I had a difficult time on the website getting checked in ahead of time."
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Many of the business class seats had to be addressed by the crew manually by removing the cushions and forcing them to recline Crew responsiveness was great They were as affected by this as the passengers
What an awful experience flying Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Miami. The crew were rude, unresponsive, and my food was raw and cold. I did not even eat in business class. I will not be flying Turkish Airlines again.
My connected flight from Warsaw was late. We have to run to the gate in Istanbul. Our bags did not arrive to Boston with us. Three days later we still do not have them.
Great service very comfortable flight
The pre-boarding crew in Istanbul for the flight to NYC did not have accurate information on Covid requirements - kept insisting I need a PCR test, when in fact an antigen test was sufficient for my category of travel. Created unnecessary tension.

Pros: "Good seats, great staff, good food, luggage service on time, excellent price!!"

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the service was nice. The cabin crew were nice too."

Even though the floght was delayed 3-4 times For a total of 2 hours! We were very upset since we have a wedding celebration scheduled and the airline showed no flexibility even in situations where the floght was delayed!

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "2nd time with Turkish Airlines; no concerns. Everything handled timely and professionally."

Cons: "The legroom is insufficient. It became very uncomfortableafter a couple of hours, I am 6 feet tall Footrests were in the way for me. Check in is long and unorganized in Dulles US. You should make electronic tickets available"
Cons: "Connecting both flights would be good"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "I lost my suitcase or had it stolen!"
Cons: "seats a bit tight"
Pros: "I ran late to the flight at 11:30am I arrive just at 10:55am. Of course the check in counter was closed. When I saw the gentleman at the counter opposite the check in, he made his effort to contact his colleague to come all the way back to the check in counter to check my bags and get me on the flight! I saw that they really worked hard to help me! I am extremely grateful and impressed! I will forever LOVE Turkish airlines!"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"
Cons: "Boarding passengers were approved to board, directed to the jetway, and then stopped. We were all stranded, standing on the boardwalk for over 30 minutes. There was no seating and little air conditioning, and we were given no explanation for the long delay in boarding."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice."
Pros: "Like my trip to Istanbul, I had no complaints. It was easy to make my transition to this flight and boarding was fine and once again the crew were friendly and welcoming. The short 2 1/2 hour flight went well."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Cons: "I was told that I can get a free Hotel since I had to wait for my next flight almost 16 hours. But when I got outside the airport at the Hotel Desk they told me that I couldn't. They told me one thing but in the end they didn't keep their word. I find it unprofessional and cheating. And on the way back I had food poisoning. Really disappointed about the whole trip."
Cons: "Choice of food on business class was very limited"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "For a short flight, it was good. The seats were a bit bigger, and the crew was nicer. The food was ok."
Cons: "Again some attitude from flight attendants. The food is average but again subpar compared to previous flights with Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Cons: "One of my checked bags was lost between the two flights"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Love this airline!!"
Pros: "Everything from the greeting received upon entering the plane to the overall service for the entire flight was quite excellent and wonderful. A really nice perk was the kit given to all the passengers in economy class with slippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, lip cream, and eye mask - no airline does this anymore and it is to be commended. The food on both legs of my flight (New York to Istanbul to Nice and the return) was actually very good -- this was the second time I've flown on Turkish Airlines and I look forward to flying again."
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Cons: "Very very cramped"
Pros: "'we took of late. I WAS PROMISSED ON THE PLANE THAT SOMEONE WILL ASSIST ME TO GET TO MY CONNECTION . IT DIDNT HAPPEN . I LOST MY CONNECTION AND WAS TREATED AT THE DESK AS A VAGABONED. THE PERSON WAS RUDE AND HE YELLED AT ME ! IWAS AFFRAID TO GO TO THE CITY AND STAYED IN AN HOTEL IN THE AIRPORT THAT COST ME 138E SHAME ON THEM ZEHAVA TELEM GILLADI"

Cons: "Seats can be bit squeezy and uncomfortable, wifi onboard only for business class. Food need to have more variety."
Pros: "Able to rest & crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Thought we might miss our next connection as it was tight, but we made it."
3.5 hours delay will ruin any day!
Not the first time we have experienced defective entertainment system on this trip. It should be upgraded.
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"

Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."

Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Very friendly staff in particular at checkin counter, kids-friendly, family-friendly, parents happy
beware of tight connections at CDG... big airport , bussing from the plane is time consuming...
Luggage handling. Arrived in Johannesburg without my luggage. Communication regarding lost luggage is basically non-existent.
Luggage handling was disgraceful and lots of luggage was left behind after being delayed for more than an hour.
A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.
Pros: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"
Cons: "The premium economy should be eliminated and should be labeled for what it is: couch class with some perks"
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Pros: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."

Cons: "Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"
Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Cons: "I was treated like I am not supposed to ask for food and they had one choice of meal for me while they had 2 for the rest."

Pros: "Onboard crew was friendly. Dinner was good"
Cons: "Cabin was very cold. Not enough legroom compared to orher international carriers. Male flight attendant kept bumping into my husband sitting in aisle seat so he unable to get any sleep. We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"

Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked.

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "Staff was nice"

I liked the comfort and the food the most. The food was delicious and the entertainment was good.
Food is horrible compared how it was in ETihad few years ago so is staff who doesn’t want to help the people at all.
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "The flight was surprisingly empty compared to flying to Abu Dhabi. I had an entire row to myself. I was able to lay out and sleep peacefully without worrying about the traveler in front of me leaving their seat back. Highly recommend Etihad airways!"
Cons: "aren't all the passengers on the flight same? how come economy passengers denied Biryani, while premium and Business class gets it?"
Cons: "My baggage is missed on my trip"
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment."
Pros: "That there was a vegetarian meal on the second leg of my travel. And that the journey is over. Besides that, not much"
Cons: "1 hour delay to begin with. Then trasfer area at Abu Dhabi was utter chaos. While it's suffocatingly crowded, there was no A.C! No vegetarian option for meal on the flight from Brussels to Abu Dhabi. The seats hurt by bottom. One of the worst flight seats ever. All in all, a totally underwhelming experience."
Cons: "1. Not smiley at all. 2. I asked for a blanket as my 2 yrs old was sleeping and I have to ask three times and finally I got it. 3. I asked for arrival form 40 min before landing and the air hostess said later and she didn’t give me one ."

Pros: "Food was great. Crew was very nice and it was a very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable business seating. Great choices of entertainment and great food."
Cons: "Boarding process having everyone board together is messy. Should have people that need assistance and families with very young children board first. They need extra time to settle. Then board by zones starting with business class."
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."

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: "The crew were very understanding and tried to help as much as they could with the issues encountered. Many out of their control."
Cons: "This flight is one I have done a couple of times in the last year. This will be the last time doing it. It is basically a transit flight for people to get to India and the sub continent. The food is all curry based and as a westerner found it not to my taste, only having a curried vegetarian option as the meal “options” is unbelievable. The plane is jam packed which is fine, but the smell of some of the other passengers was horrendous. There must be a rule that passengers shower in the week leading up to the flight at least. My wife and I both had incidents of people pushing in front in every queue from boarding (lack of control by ground staff as random people joining First/Business/Gold line as moving first) to bathrooms (myself and two others waiting patiently before a woman pushed into bathroom before person even got out, then blocked our passage in to let her family member in), hitting us with bags when disembarking and then completely blocking walkways with no consideration for other passengers. We have now agreed that we will fly through any other city/route to avoid this terrible experience being repeated."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

They didn't allow me to do that, made me to pay 200 $. didn't worth it . I was ready to throw some stuff in the trash.staff at Etihad Counter was arguing and show no professionalism end of the journey found my 2 pots were broken. Crew was nice ."

Be comfort Thnx Etihad"
Pros: "I had the opportunity of flying The Apartment from Abu Dhabi to JFK. It was one of the most incredible first class cabin experiences ever. The experience starts when boarding the aircraft and you are personally escorted to your seat and introduced to the several features around you. The space is ample and the cabin has some privacy doors making it feel very exclusive. There is a large couch across the seat which later is converted into a bed. I was offered pijamas and a small closet to hang my clothes right before take off. Once on the air our personal chef introduced himself and explained the different dishes from the menu. I was able to try the steak and the lamb biryani; both were superb. The IES provided a decent selection of western and some middle eastern films as well as a few live news channels. After I woke up our flight attendant explained the on board shower which is also a distinctive feature allowing to feel refreshed before landing. I had another meal before landing which included an appetizer, and entree and a dessert made with roses. The crew was nothing but fantastic and I would love to fly with them again."

Pros: "The flight was on time & the ground crew was courteous."
Cons: "The food was just not appealing ,palak paneer barely had any paneer in it and the sandwich for snack was dry.when I wanted to use the bathroom there was a big puddle on the floor ,I asked the stewardess if it can be cleaned, she decided to bring 5-6 half empty coffee pots to the bathroom & proceeded to dump them in the toilet,after she was done with the dumping procedure she came back with gloves & some cleaner & shut the door to clean up the mess , after she came out I thanked her but she just glared back at me even though I had not left that mess there,I don't think I would be flying Etihad again."
Pros: "I like the movies. Seats assignment to window in a 2 seats row are the best. They seat a chubby person who was all over my seat the whole 5 joirse"
Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."
