Pros: "On time Smooth landing and take off Airport was beautiful, nice clean toilets Lovely and polite staff on board Food was okay Nice range of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "Good seats with great screens. Usb, headphone jack that works with regular headphones, and a regular power outlet! Tray tables upgraded overall and have a mirror behind a slide. Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"
Cons: "would like regular water bottles to be available for drinking"
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, toilets super clean and well stocked. The best eye shades ever encountered."
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Pros: "Frequent serving of drinks, huge selection of latest films on large screen, comfortable ride"
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
Pros: "Modern Aircraft , good seat ,Crew friendliness"

Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."

Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."
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: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"

Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."

Cons: "Less confusing controls on the equipmentl"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "My first flight the seat was towards the back and was smaller than others."
Pros: "A380s are good aircraft. Emirates entertainment is second to none ."
Cons: "I'm the first leg 777 aircraft sat towards the back and my window seat was smaller than most seats. I had 1 hour 25 minutes connection in Dubai . But it was a VERY. Long walk from C3 to B14 . By the time for of the plane and reached my connecting gate t8gey were already boarding . Dubai is too big"
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."

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."
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Pros: "I definitely love Emirates' use of the A380 as it is more spacious and therefore offers a more comfortable ride. It also helps that their cabin crew were accommodating and the services offered onboard were good."
Pros: "What I like is the food served, the entertainment, and the toilet."
Cons: "What I didn’t like is some of the stewardess attitude wasn’t really good, they have the grumpy face throughout. My seat, was unable to push back, the button was gone."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "Flight was quite empty and boarding was swift and easy."
Pros: "Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Pros: "In flight meals were quite good. In fact, I would order the smoked chicken salad if I were in a restaurant. Service by cabin crew was excellent as well. Courteous, friendly and knowledgeable$o."
Cons: "In flight entertainment could have more recent movies."
Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Insufficient vegan option"
Pros: "The plane were newer. Larger monitor."
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: "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"
Cons: "THe Entertainment system did not work. which meant no tv, info or seat adjustment. this was in First Class. horrible"
Cons: "Very bad change process, through vyaname It was impossible to change the flight although it was 5 days earlier And wr missed the flight"
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed ~10 minutes boarding and I would have appreciated announcements to update the passengers with what was going on / the status of the flight."
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."
Cons: "The crew was very impolite."
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."
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: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
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: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."
Pros: "The media system was great. I enjoyed the food and the crew was very nice."
Pros: "Variety and choice of media entertainment was superb. Enjoyed the food and service."
Pros: "for long flights they should have a children's section, or at least a section where no children are allowed. We had 15 hours of non stop children, babies and infants bawling! Bummer."
This flight was cancelled
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Good crew. Nice flight. Newer equipment."
Cons: "The transfer process was a little burdensome."
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and being ontime"
Cons: "Seats are too hard"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was could have been firmer and a little more space between the rows in economy would help greatly for comfort for all."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "Toilets needs air freshener as so many passengers use them."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."
Pros: "Good attention from cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "La mejor atención, buena comida, comodidad, confiabilidad, pilotaje, tranquilidad"
Cons: "Podrían tener más películas con subtítulos en español, jugos mas conocidos y la música mejor organizada para búsqueda"
Pros: "Plane, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Coach class is not for long haul flights"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"
Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."
Cons: "Was denied boarding."
Pros: "Friendly crew Good choice of food and beverage"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Not enough time to comfortably meet connecting flight. I had to RUN! not fun!!!
Cons: "Seats in economy were very uncomfortable, almost no cushion in any of the seats or the seat backs. Would not recommend Lufthansa for long haul."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"

Pros: "S380 nice plane"
Cons: "Food lousy Late leaving Singapore caused much difficulty"
Pros: "It was a new plane."
Cons: "Cleanliness - there was a pretzel and part of chewy bar between seats. There was no water service on this flight of 12 hours plus. There was no option of vegetarian meal either for dinner or breakfast. I did not want any special meal. There is always choice of vegetarian meal."
Cons: "delay could be complimented by faster speed"
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Crew was super attentative."
Cons: "Nothing, they tried hard to make sure everyone felt they were available to take care of what they needed and when they needed."
Pros: "Everything. Crew was very friendly, always smiling. Helpful. Best flight."
Cons: "Delay of more than two hours caused my booking at the hotel to be cancelled. Not only i lost all my money but have no hotel to stay What is your responsibility on that???"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Once we got started the flight was OK. Great crew, the pilot did all the best to catch up for the delay caused in FRA."
Cons: "Once we were all onboard we had to wait in FRA in the plane until someone's baggage was unloaded. The wait time was almost 1 hour which was not pleasant esp. with small children. No entertainment onboard."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Cons: "Little food"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was late, They kept us in the plane for 20min And bagages are delay...."
Cons: "Call me .food was not good. Had to leave breakfast half eaten. Worried if not spoiled because tasted freezer old."
Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"
Cons: "Customer service and seats/rows extra small"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Its an A380 so nice and new"
Cons: "The entertainment system had a horrible interface with touch screen that didn't work well, and had to move seat because audio jack was faulty"
Pros: "Everything went fine."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very attentive. Plentiful food and drinks with several choices. Pillow, blanket, headphones provided. Individual monitors with choice of movies television music games and more. USB port for charging. Smooth flight, on time. Bid for an upgrade option is nice."
Pros: "Flying Lufthansa is a much more enjoyable experience than the US based airlines. The seating is alway going to be cramped but the crew is a lot nicer than any of the US based carriers. The flight reached right on time."
Cons: "Seating is cramped"
Overall the flight was pretty comfortable and the seating cabin (business) was impressive! Well Done Etihad!!
Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"
Cons: "In terms of comfort, Etihad offers a good level!"
Pros: "The aircraft was good Ahead of time arrival Immigration at AbuDhabi"
Cons: "In tag"
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!"
Pros: "One of the air steward was super friendly and nice. Few others were a little curt sans smiles."
Cons: "Good leg room but seats are hard as rock."
Pros: "La atención excelente. La comida muy buena. El abordaje y la entrega de equipajes a tiempo."
Pros: "The food was amazing with good And comfortable air conditioning. Cleanliness was maintained as well."
Cons: "The food serving was late it could be more manageable. The leg space is also not comfortable. Also the some seat needs to be repaired as the recliners not working."
Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets but it was not allowing me to check-in as well as seat selection online"
Pros: "787 comfort /"
Cons: "Limited movie selection/ outdated newspapers/ food quality"
Pros: "Punctuality of Eithad Airways,cooperative staff and smooth process"
Cons: "Checking of irrelevant documents"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."
Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"
Pros: "More legroom Crew was couteous"
Cons: "Poor quality food Old planes"
Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"
Pros: "USA customs done in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "I will never fly or recommend etihad to any one of my friends or family."
Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."
Pros: "Loved the inflight service and the airlines comfort."
Cons: "The carry on baggage policy of checking the size and weight of the luggage was very discomforting. Qatar did not check that kind of scrutiny of weights on our luggages."
Pros: "I did not like it"
Cons: "Employees unfriendly and rude"
Cons: "Food, stewards are rude and unprofessional."
Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "You know how it is. It's a long haul international flight and you're flying economy. NOTHING is ever good."
Cons: "Seats are super narrow, wifi did not work, food was quite poor."
Pros: "Nothing. I would never ever choose Etihad airline again"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Staff is rude and food was horrible"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Ticket was not emitted I discovered it two days before departure."
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."
Pros: "The service and comfort!"
Pros: "The economy seats have an innovative recline which really adds to comfort, especially for such a long trans-Atlantic flight. The crew was very professional and helpful. Efficient. The entire Etihad Experience was excellent. The boarding happened on schedule, the flights as promised. No missed connections, no issues with baggage. Top Notch. Very clean aircraft."
Cons: "For whatever reason they would not let me keep my carry-ons as JetBlue did, so I had to check one of them. They have weight limits for the carry-ons, which I understand, but in my case they really were not large, and not very heavy. It is what it is."
Pros: "the Kul-Auh was fine on the A330, food average."
Cons: "Refreshment service was minimal"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everyone kept saying, sorry for the delay, sorry for this,etc."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "poor seating, too close to each other and seats too narrow for long hours of sitting in an international flight Overall, the Crew had good attitude but appears overworked and very minimum service - no attention given to making the long flight pleasant (just bare basics, I was surprised) Food & beverage service and frequency inadequate."
Cons: "It appeared, not enough thoughts given for little details of comforts to make these long flights comfortable / pleasant enough that people want to return. Announcements often illegible and too soft to hear"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "The food. The charging spots and latest movies."
Pros: "Perhaps since it is in the shadow of Emirates, Etihad has been neglected. It is a truly outstanding airline."
Cons: "No frequent flyer sharing with Delta, unlike its partner Alitalia."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
