Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "The food, leg space, the drink, and more hospitality, specially towards the aged people like us."
Cons: "More meals during the flight would have helped. Also the snacks had limited variety(most of them chocolate) and not enough fruit available."
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"

Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "In all the flight was good, except for the food."

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and crew uninterested"
Pros: "Emirates airlines serves quality service on everything from passenger accessories to food. Classy airlines."
Cons: "Only downside of this trip is the long non stop to Dubai. 15 Hours!"
Cons: "My seat is horrible with something looks like vomit everywhere between a gap of the seat in front of me. Also the touch screen is not working, at first I pushed so hard until i hurt my finger tip, at the end I used buttons on an remote to control the screen(stupid me!!). The screen reset to an old version couple of times during the flight the crew had to reset for me( the airline should know what i'm talking about) It's a six-hour flight but the meal was literally served at 8.55pm(original time) in my section which is the last section to get food when the flight took of at 6.10pm(original time) - almost three hours into the flight. Can't believe they claimed to be number one airline in the world. If you fly to the States from thailand. Take Quatar if you want to go to the east coast or asian airlines any thing japanese or korean or even chinese airline like Hainan airline. They are all way better than this."
Pros: "Entertainment is good. I like food"
Cons: "Everything is good but boarding stuff needs more improvements."

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: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Some customers were allowed to drink to excess. Staff lacked the discipline to say no. Cabin staff showed clear bias to some customers. They chose to chat with passengers and neglected their duties. Little clusters of drinkers gathered in non seat areas away from their seats causing noise. Staff did not challenge this. Female staff too busy giggling with drunk men"
Cons: "see above"
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: "Little better. Too bad this wasn't my seat for the longer flight. Quick flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Pros: "Loved the flight crew...very friendly and attentive. Also love the entertainment options."
Cons: "Would love a little more legroom. Paid for high bandwidth wifi...pretty spotty service"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"
Cons: "My screen was not very responsive to touch. Was challenging to navigate. I couldn't clearly hear the PA announcements"
Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "I was expecting something similar to last year. Unfortunately, my screen did not work and when I switched seats the seat would not recline properly. On the flight back from DXB-MCO they ran out of lamb only had chicken."
Cons: "Please see above"
Pros: "Loved the seating space. Comfortable seats and I was able to stretch my legs a bit even though I was in economy. Didn't even feel like I was in the air for almost 9 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit late and could have been organised better."
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."
Cons: "Inflight Entertainment System completely dead. Was offered a piece of chocolate from biz class. Haha."
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: "The crew and leg room"
Cons: "Food was very spicy and oily. My 3 year old three up after consuming the fried rice. Boarding was veru chaotic."
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: "It dailies and seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew, clean bathrooms, second baggage free"
Cons: "Hot meals and different drinks available like coke or sparkling water, with payment if necessary ."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant"
Pros: "Food, clean plane, Nice staff"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. Very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food is not that great. They served a beef dish as the second meal without a non-meat alternative. Seats are pretty tight and the movie selection was not that great, although they offered dozens of options so it could just be my taste in movies."
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: "Best service, food, seats, space, amenities."
Pros: "Food excellent,crew are friendly, polite."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked there constant passing of water, food ."
Pros: "Business class was money well spent."
Cons: "The boarding at the gate was a bit congested."
Pros: "We loved everything about our flight, plane was so quiet and service was amazing"
Pros: "I loved everything, the ticket purchase, the check in, the free first bag, the cabin crew, the amazing food and eating with non plastic forks and spoons."
Cons: "The plane was a little too cold.i noticed that 90% of the people on the plane had covered themselves in blankets."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "every think"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Cons: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Cons: "See comments above about connection at IST."
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."
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: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Pros: "Staff are welcome and supportive.at Istanbul Airport kindly re-opened the gate for late passengers due to unexpected delays of preceding Turkish Airlines flights. Otherwise, I must have missed the flight from Istanbul to Rome."
Cons: "Delayed departure for nearly 3 hours from Islamabad to Istanbul (TK711)."
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."
Pros: "Seatback entertaininment options were amazing. Food wasn't always designed for the American palette, but most of it was pretty good, and they put a good effort into it, unlike US carriers. Flight attendants were great. Boarding was organized and smooth."
Cons: "It's just hard to make a 14 hour flight in economy comfortable. Another inch or two of space would have helped, but I understand the tradeoffs involved in that. Baggage collection at IAH took about 30 minutes, but that may have been the airport's fault and not the airline's."
Cons: "1. Seat could have been more comfortable - didn't seem to maintain recline. NOT a problem on my outbound flight. 2. We departed 50 min late. 3. Length of flight 11 + 2 hours to make many connections to Europe."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines did not transfer my bag. I am still waiting to find out if it has been routed to MLX."
Pros: "Great flight and awesome entertainment"
Cons: "The food is too small"
Pros: "The planes I flew in were very clean, comfortable and in great condition. I enjoy the seat space and comfort, good entertainment options with great quality entertainment system. The meals were also decent and we were even fed sandwiches on a short flight."
Pros: "Food is excellent."
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"
Pros: "Nice crew except for...see: 'didn't like' section."
Cons: "First and foremost we were astonished and angered that the cabin crew would not allow any window shades to be open during the day- long flight. That is unhealthy and exacerbates the jet lag phenomena. An airplane is not a hotel and you have eye masks and such readily available for people sleeping. Oh, and I also like to look out the window! For this reason I am looking for another airline to fly for our semi annual trips overseas."
Pros: "The long flight didn't even feel like one. The entire staff was very polite and also very professional."
Cons: "The service, the food, the flight quietness and it wasn't any major turbulence plus the pilot executed the smoothest landing ;)"
Pros: "No turbulence during the flight !"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the food, the spraying of chemicals in the air and the inability for the attendees to help customers."
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: "Crew is always excellent, food is amazing. Overall is always good."
Cons: "The airplane was old, seats were uncomfortable. Ataturk staff, Turkish Airline ground staff is so HORRIBLE, we are never traveling with Turkish Airline again."
Cons: "My logged didn't arrived to Amman I received one and I miss one TAG number TK633655"
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."
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Pros: "Food and service were great. Plane was super clean and economy seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system didn't work on the way back."
Pros: "Service was good, customer helping line was not that good"
Cons: "The worst part is food, they need to serve some good food for such long flight, Specially Istanbul to Islamabad and Islamabad to Istanbul, was the worst service and worst food , I will be think a lot to travel next time with turkish airline, due some bad service and food"
Pros: "The service, the wine, the staff."
Cons: "The food tasted bland. Wasn't bad, but bland."
Cons: "Service was poor - my chair was broken had to switch seat - after switching the person in front of me his chair was broken as well and he was praticly laying down on me. My earphone broke in pieces..... Kids behind me was banging my chair the entire flight. Food was just bad ! I heard so much about Turkish Airline as being one of the best airline that I tried it . Big disappointment !!!!"
Cons: "They provide excellent service. Me and my wife love it."
Pros: "The people were very nice. Polite and friendly. The entertainment was good as well. I was impressed with their vegetarian food, for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process and the crew handing out drinks and food seemed unorganized. Not sure if they were understaffed. However, they still remained nice even though you could tell they were stressed."
Pros: "It is nice that breakfast was served."
Cons: "Gate agents never called flight to board - just played an announcement twice saying it would board in 5 minutes. Free Wi-Fi on all flights would make your airline stand out. You may want to work with the airports to provide your passengers with cleaner toilets at the gates."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me who was upset that I had to go to the bathroom."
Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"

Your attendance were great, but the mask have to go, I have had all my covid shots, had to test positive before I left, and again before I came back on your planes, so no reason for me to have worn one the hole time because I have breathing problems which made the trips out and back on your flights very uncomfortable.

I requested for wheelchair assistance for my mother who has health issues but it was not provided

Definitely would recommend and I will book again

Pros: "The crew was very professional and pleasant. The food was tasty for airplane food."
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable."
Pros: "None of the above. I actually liked nothing about this trip. Took off at London in time for Frankfurt, arrived early, but missed the connection to Tel Aviv. So I had to be routed to Munich to catch a 10:30 pm flight, which arrives at 3 am Sunday. So I wasted the entire day, starved, exhausted."

Pros: "As a United 1K member and Star Alliance Gold member, I expected a little better treatment than being charged a premium to sit with my family in a 'rock bottom' basic seat."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay more for a basic seat. I really thought I had paid enough already. I could not get boarding pass tickets for the last leg of our fight. I was told that Lufthansa''s system does not communicate with United Airline System. I found this to be untrue because I have had code share flights between United and Luftansa for 20 years. At Munich I was told that they could not get me tickets either and said that there may be a security issue with me. Once I heard this I walked away."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be there early. They board early"

Cons: "You cancelled my flight & I lost a whole day of mt trip!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, flight arrived ontime"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Anna, she was the supervisor at the check in desk at Denver airport. She was super helpful and very nice. She went above and beyond to help me out with the issue i had... but everyone else i went to get help from were not at all helpful (3 other people), sour face, they probably hate their job. Movie choices on flight to Munich were great. Smooth flight, I didn't lose my bag so that was great too!"
Cons: "Rude crew member. One bad apple ruins the whole bunch. I pre selected my sest at check in on line but got different seat. Not sure why but that was uncalled for. Boarding was 35 minutes late because flight arrived late also. The lady that boarded us was nice and funny."
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Easy boarding comfort seats"
Cons: "No entertainment at all it is 2017 not from all countries but still need any kind of entertainment for a 3.20min flight"
Cons: "LATE!! This is rediculous for a flight company not to be able to board on time so I miss my connection and get stuck for 6 hours"
Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."
Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Cons: "All"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"
Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"
Pros: "Everything was great on the flight! The food was good and we had a lot of drinks! The service is really good"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Pros: "Horrible customer service through the strike. Rebooking took four hours."
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" (157cm) and slim but could barely move in my seat, and if the person in front leaned seat back, it was terrible. Food was lame, really salty and they did not come around with water enough."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seat was double booked luggage never made it out of Berlin found out that I was canceled from Munich to lax no one ever said how it happened extremely stressful"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "Check-in was easy and boarding was efficient"

Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

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: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Nothing​"
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."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."

Service

Delayed flight, all passengers were made to wait for 40 minutes in a small pre boarding area without regard for social distancing, no one to organise boarding as a result of which there was a rush for boarding once the gates were open

Pros: "Everything but the crew."
Cons: "Crew Behaviour"
Cons: "1- To present more than 2 choices of meals, either the main meals or snacks, like Kuwait"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."

Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "The bus took forever to reach the plane. Food quality was poor"
Pros: "La atención excelente. La comida muy buena. El abordaje y la entrega de equipajes a tiempo."
Pros: "The crew was easily the WORST I have dealt with. Both on the flight to Abu Dhabi and to NYC. They were rude, unhelpful and extremely arrogant. A co passenger was chatting with one of them and she happened to mention that working with people was the worst ever. She’s been with Etihad for 5 years!!!"

Pros: "Spacious flight. Helpful crew. Efficient boarding"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "Departed on time. Seat was ok."
Cons: "Check-in and boarding was too long and confusing. Too much to walk between one place to next. Overkill on security and baggage check. Food was terrible. Second full meal was chopped up to just a salad and main dish...no bread or dessert. Air hostess could be more pleasant. Flight was late 1 hr."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Boarding anything in Nepal is a adventure.They change gates on you as you are on the way.Then just sit and wait."
Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Food menu need to be modified."
Cons: "Add chicken biryani, chicken shawarma etc."
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Food abd care"
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Full flight with small seats with little leg room, uncomfortable on a long flight and, I am very petite! Old, dated movies Mediocre food"

Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed to JFK an hour early. Flight was not full. Hence, enjoyed free vacant seats to lay down. Landing was nice and smooth"

Pros: "the soft colours and comfort of the seats"
Cons: "some sort of pasta for breakfast"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Total lack of ownership or accountability as we booked through Jet Airways, despite it being a partner airline. I highly recommend never boring any trip that involves both Jet and Etihad. They are not partners and suffer from lack of communication or processes to manage any issues, just pass the buck. Awful experience."
Cons: "Food was okay..."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Food was horrible - asked for blankets and they didnt give out any. Seats were small and tight."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be new or something else happened but they ran out of food to serve, so they handed out bread rolls and soft drinks which then sat on our trays for the majority of the flight."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Food is not bad. Should make desert a little bit more delish"
Cons: "Service. Not being helpful. No one is going to help u out your luggage at the cabin. I have to ask help from the passenger. Crew are just staying at one corner and pretending to be busy"

Pros: "The plane was spacious with great features. The crew was friendly and helpful"

Cons: "I wouldn't fly Etihad again because they lost my bags twice"
Pros: "New flights Very good entertainment Good quality food Customer focused crew"
Cons: "Liquid supply (water) more often would have been nice"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Food can be better and limited access to WiFi (free) would be great. It was too expensive per flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, but I wasn't informed until after a kiosk told me to check with an attendant. After waiting in line for an hour to find out my flight was cancelled, I was told I could either go to LaGuardia for a 1955 flight or I could wait until tomorrow at the same time. Neither flight was guaranteed and since they use AA, there was no other airline I could use to fly out of JFK or get home that day. I paid the $14 to bus over to LaGuardia where my flight was delayed repeatedly and I didn't arrive in PGH until nearly 11p. (scheduled to arrive @ 1720) The flight itself was not bad nor did the crew do a bad job, it was more the general indifference and treatment in between."
Cons: "the food was only so-so."
