Getting off

Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat was very good, food excellent."
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "The food can be more improve"
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."
Pros: "The crew service is good. Not great, but still above average from other flagship carriers."
Cons: "The seat (B787-10) is so cramp!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was my first time flying so I was a little nervous but they made me feel safe and welcomed. The friendly crew was honestly what made the whole experience great."

Pros: "Being one of the best airlines in the world, you can really go wrong with these guys. Always a good experience."
Cons: "As always, economy class is getting tighter. But economy here is still better than the western airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Pros: "The staff is amazing and know what parents of bubs need."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive to my needs. They met it with a smile."
Cons: "Older plane not so comfortable for a long flight. Movies, not much choice and far away from seat."
Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Pros: "Consistency of high quality service. Beef goulash in economy was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"
Pros: "Services, the Care and the Concern!"
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Pros: "Seats, crew"
Cons: "Nothing else other than above"
Pros: "Friendliness"
Pros: "I like the services from Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Your web site tried to charge me $90 for aisle seat, do you agree that this is a big joke or what? I have decided no use your company any more. Not sure why a great airlines like Singapore Airlines would partner with your company???"

Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "the flight schedule are very good"
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Cons: "Food was very poor."
Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Return flight the movies were the same as three weeks earlier."
Pros: "Extremely polite flight crew"
Cons: "-The food was pretty bad -Not much leg room"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."

Emirates what could gone wrong

Cons: "Food was not enough and it was served after very long hours."

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,"
Cons: "seats wouldn't recline, they say it is a mechanical, I had to sit uncomfortably for 16 hrs"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "There was pretty much nothing I didn't like. Everything was great, including the Business Class Lounge in Dubai. The service was great, the staff was very pleasant, the comfort of the seats was unmatched."
Cons: "I remarked that the entertainment was OK, only because I have seen most of the movies and tv shows that were available, the response time for the buttons between the remote and the view screen was sometimes slow, and of course, the WiFi, I'm sure, will be improved with time."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was unbeatable. The crew was great. The 13 he flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "When boarding my kids and I were separated. This is not recommended at all. I don't know why you can't keep families together."
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "Girls were very helpful and there was one Italian jental man was very kind and co-operative. However sits were very uncomfortable. Food was ok. There were very little healthy choices. overall it was good."
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "A few of your flight crew were very nice and apologized for conditions. Free wine."
Cons: "Pissed poor equipment, awful food if that's what you call it, cramped environment. And the fact that on both out going and incoming flights I had things stolen from the over head compartments."
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: "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: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "Pretty clean"
Cons: "The food wasn't really good. They didn't have plain hot water as my daughter was sick with throat pain. Same old and boring"
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: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"
Cons: "Short trip no issues at all"
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "The crew The food The entertainment The comfortable seats"
Cons: "The airport in Dubai is a little too cold and open to catch a snooze on the floor or at a corner."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Good timing (daytime flight). Punctual."
Cons: "Documentaries."

Smart and friendly staff

I liked the aircraft crew the most. Foods could have been better with more options and snack for kids available.

Only the flying part was okay. They have not served food to two of us in the Doha to Hyderabad flight They told that they are not aware of our food requirements We had to travel without food

My luggage was left at doha nd flight landed houston. Horrible experince i had this time.

Pros: "No distance between passengers (covid)"
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"

Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Pros: "the crew was amazing"
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Pros: "All"
Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."
Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."
Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "TOOO long."
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Cons: "THE SEATS I REQUESTED DURING BOOKING DID NOT TRANSFER OVER TO QATAR AIRWAYS."
Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"
Cons: "The added journey flying around Saudi Arabia. Adds extra time onto a very long flight. Would put me off flying Qatar again"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. Food was less than mediocre."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Chairs a little too small for long flights...."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."
Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"
Pros: "TImings"
Cons: "Price"
Cons: "I had cancelled my flight with qatar airways due to the current political problems. My ticket was booked through the agent airfare.com. They have handled the issue terribly. To start with. They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"
Pros: "It was a short flight, so no problems"

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Cons: "My bag was overweight so o checked online and it said that the charge would be $50, but when i got to the airport in Dubai the charge was $75 with no explanation about thr difference. When we arrived in LA we set on the tarmac foe about 45mins waiting for an open gate. Wasnt the best experience"
Cons: "Jam packed flight. Qantas is squeezing people in and squeezing the profits. Happening way to frequently now."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Food is terrible."
Pros: "Overall a good flight"

Pros: "On time, could have actually been early, but no."
Cons: "Uncomfortable cramped seats, selection of entertainment was dire, nothing I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Despite being fully booked, the 14 hour flight was peaceful and easy. Every seat had a pillow & blanket upon embarkation, the lights were dimmed after dinner and it wasn't difficult to sleep. Staff were very friendly & accommodating."
Cons: "Smallish serves of food (dinner & light breakfast) for a long flight"
Pros: "Great service, very attentive with my 2.5yo toddler. Also the baby change rooms in the Business Lounge were some of the best I've ever used."
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "Love going to Yancey when we are pushed by the tail winds!"
Cons: "Breakfast was dire"
Pros: "food was good, great entertainment, crew very attentive"
Cons: "everything was good"

Cons: "I found the seat really uncomfortable. My back was hurting well before the end of the flight."

Cons: "Food and service was appallling. ... an insult to be assed a Lindt choc (1) ... by hand."
Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"
Pros: "It was all good, start to finish."
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: "Friendly crew and great food"
Cons: "Not applicable"
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"
Pros: "I always enjoy the flights that have the in-seat entertainment."

Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"

Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."

Pros: "Crew members were very helpful and pleasant. The food was excellent and nicely served."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "1. The crew from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade was appalling. As we touched down at Belgrade Tesla airport, and were still taxiing, many passengers stood up, opened up the overhead compartments, took out their carry-on bags (some were pretty big hard top) and left it on the aisle. The overhead compartment doors were left open and once or twice the crew at the back murmured them to sit on their seats and strap themselves. But neither did the crew come up to severely reprimand them nor did the passengers seem to care. IT WAS THE MOST SHOCKING EXPERIENCE in my over 25 years of flying. Terrible service on part of Etihad Crew. 2. We'd just an hour's transit in Abu Dhabi airport and there were numerous passengers still trying to disembark from the Kochi-Abu Dhabi flight, pass through security checks, walk quite a distance to the gate and then get on to the bus to board the aircraft. Strangely there was no Etihad personnel helping us to navigate through this absolute chaos. Many people, young and old, were literally running with their bags. Some of us yelled that we'd a short connection and then one of the ground staff tried to make way for us to navigate through the huge queues waiting for security. This process could've been managed infinitely better. Just imagine if there were elderly passengers or little children? 3. Food was terrible. I'm a vegetarian and usually Asian vegetarian is reasonably good. In this case the rice was poorly cooked (grainy), lacked any variety (anybody who's familiar with Asian food can assure you that there're amazingly tasty and healthy vegetarian dishes that can be prepared - if Etihad needs help they're welcome to contact me). I'm surprised by all this. Try Emirates and one can see the quality of the food. 4. We'd to collect our boarding passes at Belgrade airport. We've a carte de legitimation (CDL) residence card for Switzerland but it seemed obvious that the ground staff at Belgrade have no clue what a Swiss CDL looks like. My wife who's a South African national cannot obviously enter Switzerland without a visa but the CDL is a legitimate document and that should have been it. Further we'd been checked in from Kochi to Zurich (and our bags had been checked through to ZRH). It's obvious that Belgrade staff are poorly trained and it caused unnecessary waiting time (nearly 30 minutes) and senior staff had to be summoned to clarify. I'm terribly disappointed with the overall service of Etihad. I'll never fly through Belgrade for sure. It's horrible and the travel desk were not particularly helpful. In fact I'm considering never to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Nothing, they loose my luggage, so I want my luggage back in 1 day or refund my money"
Cons: "They loose my luggage."
Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."
Cons: "My seat (8d) would not recline and the hand rest would not go up."
Pros: "Flight from Abu Dhabi to kolkata"
Cons: "When I was checking in in Nairobi The lady was rude and unfriendly I have never experienced such behavior from any airline stuff"
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: "The food is not standard airline food and deliciously reflects the Middle East."
Pros: "customer service is great"
Cons: "waited for another plane that was late..but no problem"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same issues as my trip to Chicago, but this was a shorter duration so issues not as problematic"
Cons: "Boarding process very delayed and we tired in this journey"
Pros: "For a 15 hour flight out was fine. The food is good."
Cons: "Bathroom lines were usually long. Appears a few were not working."
Pros: "USA customs done in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "I will never fly or recommend etihad to any one of my friends or family."
Cons: "Food Asked several times for ice/water and it was not brought"
Cons: "Crews attitudes"
Cons: "For US bound flights, emigration and custom check is done in Abu Dhabi. So our luggage should have been checked to the final destination Kalamazoo."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Cons: "Food was bland and weird combinations. Give a chapati or rice with curry."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Etihad gives you lots of food and makes sure you never go hungry. The Air hostesses were fairly helpful even thought it was the early hours of the morning and the entertainment was fairly diverse but could be better. Having USB ports to charge your phone and their devices is fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were small and very little leg room. It was not very comfortable and very hard to get some sleep considering it was an 11 hour flight overnight."
Pros: "Stunning level of service. It feels like what U.S. Airlines were like when you traveled in the 1950's-60's. They pamper you and really seem to care about your flight experience. Food was excellent. I will try my best to only fly this airline from now on for overseas flights."
Cons: "Not much to say about what I didn't like. My only negative experience was waiting almost an hour for baggage upon return in Toronto. I almost missed my shuttle back to home . Entire luggage experience was very disorganized and pathetic, I blame that on AerLingus, which is owned by Etihad."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "overall service was good."
Cons: "as an American, with LAX as my home airport, it was unfortunate that we were not told of where our baggage claim was. We arrived in the International terminal, however, our bags arrived in terminal 4 (American). I feel for the foreign traveler in this instance. A quick update to travelers before disembarking of the plane as to the location of where their luggage would be found would be nice."
Cons: "Food presentation"
Cons: "Few food and drinks options Bathrooms not so clean"
Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for too long a flight. Boarding took forever."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Actually none."
Cons: "6hrs late, no reason given for delay. And they offered very limited food. Boarding counter employees are rude with customers."
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."
Pros: "Cleaniness , food , entertainment"
Cons: "Air hostesses, my daughter asked 3 times for something . They kept saying will give and eventually no manners to come and reply also .. Asked for an extra bun for my 3 year old I was said will come back after the round but again no one came .. Never experienced this with any other flight .. Boarding also with kids was a little difficult when going by bus to the aircraft .. No priorities .. Only pushing .."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "SERVICE"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Economy class seats hard to stretch"
Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating.When I checked in the airline attendant switched me to a window seat which was very considerate. Flight attendants came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated."
Cons: "Hair was served in the food and the etihad airlines did not do anything other than offer a mere 10k goodwill miles and said even that they don't do but we're doing me a favor by doing so. I would never travel again on this airline ever."
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: "Some of the crew was unfriendly and rude, this was a 15 hour flight and it was pretty miserable. There were not enough movies to keep us entertained for the whole flight, and this was one of 3 flights I took on this airline."
Pros: "Best On time/schedule ahead arrival/boarding service."
Cons: "Seating arrangement need to improve on 4 seats rows."
Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Connection times and schedule."
Cons: "Middle of the day standing in the runway in the sun in the desert inline. That's boarding experience. Who cares for 3rd world traveller right !"
Cons: "Too cold in the airplane"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."
Pros: "In general your services are greatly appreciated"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Polite staff."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight with not much space to avoid touching your neighbor. It really made the 13 hour flight uncomfortable to sleep. On a shorter flight it wouldn't have been as big of an issue but this overnight trip it was rough."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good, the company music is pleasing."
Cons: "They changed the departure time of my flight 3 times for no apparent reason. Upon calling them to inquire and confirm departure time, I received "confirmed" times from three different employee's that were all different. I spent a total of 88 minutes on the phone with them incurring long distance calling fees. Then, once settled, my layover went from 2.5 hours to 7 hours. They offered NOTHING to remedy this fault. Oy, first and LAST time I fly Etihad."
Pros: "Crew were so courteous, elegant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Food was typical airline food - not much one can do about that."
