Pros: "Spacious Premium Economy seats with excellent flight attendants looking after general wellness of customers."

Pros: "The service was excellent"

Pros: "Seats are spacious even for economy class."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"
Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Pros: "The crew was terrific. Always smiling and helpful."

Pros: "The service is exceptional!"
Pros: "Five Star Singapore Service on board the aircraft."
Pros: "Singapore airline is amazing, great service and quality entertainment."

Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."
Cons: "It felt a tad bit hot in the plane. No personal vents to adjust to one's own desire."
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."

Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."

Cons: "Some of the male crew didn't do anything, the females did all the interactive work in serving and helping the disabled as far as I could see."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
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: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff, the food and overall the experience."
Cons: "That our bags weren't check in all the way to SEA"

Cons: "Need to be able to upgrade with Krisflyer Miles"
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: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."
Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Overall very good."
Cons: "Weren't informed of status of connecting flight while in flight. Learnt that the connecting flight was held back on arrival in terminal."
Pros: "Great food, friendly staff, on time... what else do you need?"
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
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."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Pros: "The flight was an hour shorter than i expected. The staff was around and attentive. I felt like i won the lottery with flights"
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Flight was pleasant, boarding was a tiny bit disorganized. They didn't use the groups for economy, perhaps because there was so many of us."
Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."
Pros: "Crew and Food was great"
Cons: "For over 12 hours I was surrounded by screaming children. Would really appreciate an adults only section"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Actually, pretty all right, so no recommendations."
Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"
Pros: "reached before schedule. giving passengers enough time for getting off board and give them a little extra time in hand."
Cons: "flight attendant responsible for boarding the flight was rude. he gave unclear instructions creating confusions. the flight interior was average/below average. really inferior quality compared to other emirates flight."
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: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been kept more strict and organized."
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."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"
Pros: "the people working on the plain and airport."
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment was amazing The boarding process was very seamless Everything was done on time"
Cons: "Honestly, nothing. I was beyond impressed."
Pros: "Good vegetarian selection of good. Huge choice of entertainment. Friendly and polite crew."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
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: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "Food and beverage choices were excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was delayed a lot and not properly handled. I was in Business class, still there was no information about what would happen when. Onboard, the TV (ICE) and internet were struggling to keep up with user demand. Did not load or connect sometimes. Different crew members had same standard answer - try later. While sleeping in Business class, I was woken up twice by a rude crew member (Velma Ndubi). She even refused to tell me her name because she did not want me to complain. Her attitude ruined the flight for me."
Pros: "Didn’t get this flight as we were so delayed."
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: "The seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."
Cons: "The flight attendants had been un attentive. I was missing a headset so I asked for one, but I never got it. I borrowed that of the person seated next to me. When it was time for serving hot beverages, I skipped tea and waited for the coffee. However, the flight attendant who was serving the coffee never looked my way, and she passed so fast before I got the chance to signal her. Afterwards, I asked three other flight attendants and even though they said they would come back with the coffee, they never did. Finally, when I was about to get up and head to the crew cabin, one flight attendant came by and I pointed to her that I wasn't offered coffe so I was about to go and see if I could get a cup of coffee from the cabin. She said that I didn't need to get up for that and she would get it to me. They eventually brought that coffee one hour after my first request."
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: "Everything except landing"
Cons: "Rough landing"
Pros: "A380 is spacious"
Cons: "my seat (head) was broken"
Cons: "Crammed, staff poor"
Pros: "Fantastic flight from start to finish lax to dubai. I was offered upgrade to business class from economy for $1000 USD which was well worth the cost as the 15 1/2 flight can be tough in economy. The a380 is smooth, much more quiet and is pressurized to lower altitude than most planes so you do get off feeling more refreshed. Service and food were good and the inflight entertainment is first class with hundreds of movies on demand."
Cons: "Took 50min after deboarding for luggage to arrive at baggage claim but I'm told that's not the usual and emirates staff were there to apologize and let us know of the unusual delay."
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Ok"
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: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Pros: "As expected"
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "My seat was changed after I had booked and paid for flight."
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: "Kids meals, activity packs, travel backpacks/blankets, all made a great travel experience for the kids (2 and 4 years old)."
Cons: "This particular 6hr flight had an entertainment system that was a little bit older, but still good."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Too cramped -there was no order while boarding -seats were less spacious -Film was of poor quality and i had to switch off -the buttons were less user friendly"

The bathroom is not that good.. dirty.. the sink is not properly draining.. (all bathrooms - all flights- back&forth) . There was no toilet paper seat either going to DC. Crew is not picking up trays/trash right away. Once, we even brought our tray in the back. Food should be mix of western& middle east. middle east food is a bit too much for some passengers- too smelly, spicy,— The crew are nice though. Very helpful and friendly.

I love Qatar Airways.Thanks to all the people who serve the airline

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "All okey except earphones issue .. doesn’t works to be connected"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Crew was superbly amazing which made flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Heating food with plastic containers is unhealthy and might cause cancer to people. It’s scientifically proven fact that plastic and heated food is carcinogenic. So please find other solution for it. Thanks"
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: "much better than average food"
Cons: "shorter length flight but maybe little can be done,"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I advise Qatar Airways"
Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "better food"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
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: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Qatar flight is no problem"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
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: "Everything"
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Cons: "Seats are way uncomfortable and small"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage and I am getting no straightforward answer"
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 was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."
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: "Everything was great except Food and service comfort of the plane Cleanliness was superior"
Cons: "One crew member was a pain if you wanted ice you got 3 cubes ask for more he would ignore you. He was rud and nasty. I mentioned to other crew members they say just his way. If that is his way maybe he need find new job."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Nothing

Pros: "Aircraft, aircraft crew ,"
Cons: "Boarding desk , online offers , offers with clear explanations"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Seat spacing, food, crew Everything"
Pros: "Crew and seats"
Cons: "Sound system,, entertainment system should not be turned off 25min before landing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "Well, it got me from Point A to Point B I guess"
Cons: "You cannot book seats in advance which is fine but one would expect that if you have 3 seats on one reservation, you would at least be seated together - nope 3 window seats all over the plane. Boarding was delayed for no reason. Bags took (no exaggeration) about 1.5 hours to come. And it is a hot mess with no carts"
Pros: "Transiet time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness, the beautiful kind staff, and most important of all, the safe flight -- oh yeah, I loved sampling your world class music selection"
Cons: "for a tall guy you need to raise the seats a bit; the food was better than most airplane food but overcooked rice and fish was meh ... it's hard to image how an industrially prepared food could be better, but until you figure it out I'll keep packing my lunch"
Pros: "The flight took off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "The food was not good but for a short flight, I was ok with waiting until I landed in Kathmandu to eat."

Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"
Pros: "Loved the inflight service and the airlines comfort."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS NOT CANCELLED"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS DELAYED, CONNECTING FLIGHTS WERE MISSED. SIGNIFICANT DELAYS"
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: "Spacious. Good food. Courteous most of the time."
Cons: "A little chaotic during the boarding process. Would benefit from addressing issues before boarding as the flights are usually full rather than waiting till boarding time."
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Excellent customer service and clean planes."
Cons: "No live TV , food choices are very limited"
Cons: "Boarding process,"

Cons: "Extremely strict on carry-on baggage weight policy. I wish I knew about this policy before going to the airport. Ended up paying $110 more, having to move stuff from my carry on bags to checked in luggage."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work on my seat at all. Crew started becomes delayed in responding to the call button and didn't offer good options as substitute."
Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "Ok"
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Cons: "If you look my itinerary, I left Flint to Delhi with my wife-Rita Bhatnagar. She did return on October 25th but I was suppose to return by Nov. 24th. Unfortunately, my wife injured her back while liftin gher luggage at Flint air port on October 25th and few days latter she end up in ER Hospital. I had no choice but to return back home, so I called Etihad customer service for reschedule my trip back to Flint. They asked me so much money that I had no choice but find another flight (cheaper) from United Airlines. So, answer to your question is that I didn't travel from Delhi to Flint on Etihad Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "It was short"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "The cockpit crew was efficient in announcing the highlights of the flight.The landing and take off was smooth and flawless.The aircraft, an airbus 321 was clean."
Cons: "The service from Abudhabi to Cochin was worse than the so called cattle class.One simple instance, the food menu which was trumpeted and given to each passenger in the economy class, had three main entrees,viz Fish/chicken/vegetarian. When the food trolley came to my seat in the mid section of the plane, the hostess with almost a desperate look told me that only the vegetarian dish was available.I told her that I definetly need the fish or chicken dish.She scrounged around and ultimately gave me the fish choice whereas all the rest around me had to do with the vegetarian fare.Why this stupidity of a grandiose menu card?...The menu list states a list of liquor available in flight in the economy class.The hostess was serving the same only to those who specifically asked for it and that too as if she has to pay for the same.What a shame on the airline.You folks can do much better than this, in the so called cattle class.Sitting in a preassurised tube for more than 21 hours to reach ones destination is agony by itself, but then getting into your flight after seeing the goodies offered are only in paper, is a sad disappointment."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for more than 2 hours for flight to take off. Missing the connecting flight to New Delhi from Abu Dhabi. Stranded in the Abu Dhabi terminal for more than 24 hours to get back to New Delhi. The airline did not provide a room to stay & forced to stay in the terminal for 24 hours. Never ever travel via Etihad."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and excellent in-flight service."

Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"
Cons: "I changed my flight but they didn’t change it and now I’m stuck!!!"

Cons: "The toilets were filthy. The tv touch screens didn’t work"
Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost. It has been two days of a trip of having no clothes, shoes, or toiletries other than what I had on my person. And I have yet to hear from anyone with Ethiopian Airlines, only representatives from Madrid airport."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Plane was older model. No individual movies. Seats were old and worn, but flight was nice."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew courteous. In fact the passengers all applauded when we landed."
Cons: "To reach Addis Abba/Arusha from the west coast of the US by Ethiopian Air, one must go through Dublin. I wish there was a Seattle to Addis Abba choice."
