Good are good and always provide variety of drinking. Smooth and punctuated flight. Thanks for your excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I do not like. I will take trips with your airlines in future when having s chance."
Cons: "My ticket was messed up completely (GYD-IST-VAR-IST). First leg did not book (close) it properly, I have lost 1 hour at trasfer desk in IST (they were solving my ticket issue for that long) and another hour in VAR on the way back (because the TK staff did not solve it right the first time). Lousy work of service desk! I was lucky to keep boarding passes as the proof, because nobody believed, that I duly arrived from Baku."
Pros: "The food was excellent fresh and plentiful. The bathrooms were very clean"

Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Cons: "We stood in line for a while, when it was our turn to check in they told us we were in the wrong line, unfortunately we didn’t saw a sign that told us that we had to be somewhere else because we were flying to Israel. At our second check in the guy at the desk was very unfriendly. Not something you think oh he is happy he could help us. Not at all. He was very grumpy"
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 service in the flight was good."
Cons: "There was a delay of one hour at the transit ."
Pros: "crew, fod, entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats"
Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning​ or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish​ airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."
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: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and service was good nice food."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT ITSELF WAS GREAT. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COMFORTABLE FOR A 12 1/2 HR. FLIGHT. MY WALLET FELL OUT OF JACKET AND WENT UNDER SEAT, AND THE MAN BEHIND ME HAD TO HAVE TAKEN $400.00 FROM MY WALLET BEFORE I NOTICED IT WAS MISSING...AND ONLY GAVE WALLET BACK WHEN CONFRONTED LEAVING PLANE."
Cons: "FELLOW PASSENGERS WERE NOT THE BEST. CREW WAS EXCELLENT."
Pros: "I liked it that I was able to check in online and choose my seat."
Cons: "My trip from Zurich to Istanbul would have been okay if it weren't for the screen that was not working. It did not work and I hated not having to do anything else besides eat and sleep."
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."
Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, great service and very kind attendants, great food, accommodating comfort for the long trip I had. Definitely the best airline experience I have ever had and all for an incredible price, under $600 to fly from Miami to Rome!"
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "The service and the meals, even in economy class."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "food was good, good entertainment, comfortable seating"
Cons: "service was slow and inefficient"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Most important all flights ran on schedule. Food service and quality were excellent and a great surprise Clean and new aircraft I would travel Turkish Air again and recommend to other friends"
Cons: "At 6'3" I was a bit jammed up in Economy Security was a bit overdone. Initial screening X-Ray carry on bags, thru metal detector. After landing Zurich--Istanbul, again thru xRay and hand screening, then again at gate complete screening again. I guess better too much than not enough."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Their boarding pass listed departure time for boarding time which confused me. The staff in Istanbul is extremely unprofessional and have caused me to missed my connecting flight. I had to get a visa and waited almost 2 hours in line in order just to be able to reschedule my flight."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Ticket prices were reasonable, warm towel upon entry, food was edible, comfortable seats, they give you an eye mask, slippers socks, toothbrush and lip balm. Which we received on all flights except this one (all flights were international)."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't personable on any of the flights. I'm 6 months pregnant and randomly get hungry. There are snacks like muffin available "anytime" On our long flight from Atlanta to Paris I pressed the button 3 times to see if I could get a muffin, but the attendant alert was turned off remotely and no one came to check on me. Thank God it wasn't some sort of emergency."
Pros: "Everything was appreciated"
Pros: "There was a lot of service. The crew were attentive or helpful if asked."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and sat for two hours on the plane without taking off. Then we had to all get off the plane with all of our luggage and wait on a hot bus until we could get back on the flight. It wasn't explained what was going on or why we had to do that and it made me late for appointments I had back in New York."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing's"
Pros: "politely crew."
Cons: "food caused stomach pain"
Pros: "Wide variety of movies."
Cons: "Firstly, our daughter's personal TV monitor stopped working about an hour into the flight. We asked for the TV monitor to be fixed on three different occasions and nothing was done about it so we had to share our monitor for the remainder of the 10 hour flight. Secondly, we were the last to be served even we though we were seated in the middle of the plane. When they finally got to us they didn't have anymore of the selection that we wanted so we had to settle for what was left. When we finally got our food it was ice cold! We had to ask for another plate. By this point we were starving and very upset. Overall, our experience wasn't the most ideal."
Cons: "I really found that the crew was rude, specifically on the New York to Istanbul flight!"
Cons: "Food has room to improve."
Pros: "Entertainment system and broad variety of international movies and music"
Cons: "Delayed take off"
Cons: "For the Athens to Heraklio flight, I'm not sure offering sesame desert (or anything sugary) to tired and hungry travelers is a good idea. For many of us, this was a the second, late-night connecting flight, after many hours of traveling. Something salty would probably be more appreciated and enjoyed at that moment."
Pros: "Price, food was fine,"
Cons: "The staff was super aggressive to put all handbags under the seat even with empty compartment bins. Once the big bags are in why should they be so mean of the compartments are still empty?"
Pros: "Good on business class was amazing and the staff was always ready to help with any questions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice and because of that the airplane was not as clean as it should of been"
Pros: "The crew is good and friendly"
Cons: "To be committed to the time of departure"
Pros: "Pretty roomy seats, food and drinks included in the price."
Cons: "30 minutes late at the take off, but appreciate captain’s comment that airport was busy at the time."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t download the entertainment app."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Perhaps Greek is different from English but I felt the flight attendants ranged from being gentle in their response to being loud and scolding at least in what it soundes to me as a nonGreek speaking person."
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew were v good"
Cons: "Comfort no entertainment, small seats..."
Pros: "Wider than average seats and a nice meal."
Cons: "Plane was not near the gate & we had to ride a bus to the plane."
Cons: "Flight was late two hours..."
Pros: "We had a nice comfortable flight and were delighted to receive the complementary food and drinks."
Cons: "We were slightly delayed and found it difficult to understand some of the announcements from the crew."
Pros: "Check-in counter mentioned that our ticket did not include checked baggage, but she only charged for one bag (will be checking on my ticket and discussing with Aegean's corporate if I bought the correct ticket with checked bags). Boarding was easy and the crew was very nice and helpful throughout the flight. I was glad that they served a small meal - food was good...we're not talking about a restaurant meal. Seats were good and just wish there was some in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight Crew is well dressed and put together Food was decent Plane Comfortable"
Cons: "I checked a small bag and it was 60 Euro. Too expensive!"
Cons: "No jet bridge at either location"
Cons: "We couldn’t check in until 90 minutes before Departure."
Pros: "The flight was ok , even though it was delayed 40 minutes"
Cons: "I was surprised and disappointed when I found out that I had to pay for my Standard luggage 1 suitcase per person cist me an extra $92 USD and I now know that I will also have to pay on the yrip back . You site eas very unclear about this , exttemly disapointing!"
Pros: "They even give you food on a lunchtime flight~"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were good."
Cons: "40 minutes late. Zero entertainment, not even headers for music."
Pros: "crow and food and cooporatio was wow"
Cons: "seat was so hard"
Pros: "We made it to destination."
Cons: "Absolutely no order in getting to plane. Then told people to check bags. Many ignored them. And they only selectively enforced. Lied about every carry-on suitcase being checked. Plenty of overhead space available. Coat me almosst an hour waiting for my bag which would have easily fit in the overhead. Was late to meeting."
Pros: "The staff especially the cabin crew were very professional and Courteous. The food was fantastic and served well."
Cons: "Being called to wait to board in a Que when we did not need to like Ryan Air"
Pros: "Good service! On time!"
Cons: "not nearly enough room, despite having bought extra legroom seats. Crowded.."
Pros: "A great airline. They provide service and are on time. Nice staff in airport and plane."
Cons: "Connection flight was not accessible because of the arrival delay. Airline staff did not help at all."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I'm a photographer on a 3 week trip. I have luggage. Unless you take the ferry, there are limited airline options to Cyclades. Aegean really doesn't want you if you have luggage. Felt like I was being scolded. True, I'm trying to be frugal and avoid a big investment in shock-proof luggage and/or checked baggage fees, but as long as it fits under my seat, what's the big deal? I'm sure I easily weigh at least 70 pounds less than the person sitting next to me, so the extra 4 kg in a backpack that I (female) can personally carry shouldn't be an issue. Then, there's no jetway. You leave the gate to board a bus that takes you to a plane on the tarmac where you must climb a rather large flight of metal stairs. Reverse direction, It takes quite some time and a few crew members to assist those with disabilities to deplane. All the time the rest of the passengers are waiting in the bus to get to their connections. Would only ever fly this airline again if it was the only option to get where I want to go."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom. Professional crew. They offered food on a relatively short flight. Very pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Our bag was delayed, and we had to fill a claim"
Pros: "The flight was on time The boarding process was acceptably efficient The fight attendants were nice and responsive There was a meal served and plenty of beverages"
Cons: "The plane did not arrive at the terminal. Required going down stairs, riding a bus to the terminal."
Pros: "Clean modern aircraft."
Cons: "Both flights were late. Cabin crew arrived at plane at the last minute. The person next to me asked repeatedly for a glass of water for his child but was not accommodated. Staff seemed stressed."
Pros: "Friendly staff and excellent onboard service"
Cons: "There was a slight delay with the boarding process. We were bussed from the terminal to the plane on the tarmac and were held on the bus for several minutes while maintenance workers sorted things out with the crew. We were finally allowed to board the plane after the maintenance crew had left. The entire plane from front to back had a terrible smell, as if the sewage pipe had burst and liquid/waste flowed everywhere. The smell may or may not have anything to do with the maintenance crew on board and delayed our boarding. No explanation of the smell. Good thing it was a short flight from Athens to Naples"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "They give you a hot meal, even on a short flight."
Cons: "Their dimensions for carry on luggage are smaller than the industry norm. As such, bags that most any other airline would consider carry on, must be checked for 40 Euros on Aegean."
Pros: "The best crew ever, they make you feel home."
Pros: "When I booked my ticket from New York to Greece with a 3 day stop over in Paris I should have been told that I would have to pay to check in my luggage from Paris to Greece. I assumed that since I was entitled to one free piece of luggage from New York to Paris that I wouldn't have to pay any fees going from Paris to Athens. I ended up paying 240.00 euros to check in 4 suitcases! that's absurd!! In addition I couldn't check in online for this flight and therefore was not told via email that I could at least check in my bags via the internet for s reduced fee. This is a kayak issue. Otherwise Aegean was great."
Cons: "Cold on the plane"
Pros: "Cada vez que viajo en AEGEANS, revibo un buen servicio... Tuve un problema con pequeños líquidos en carry on, y regresando al checking, me ayudaron , sin pagar extra y recibieron mi maleta de mano gratis y no sólo eso...me la chequear on como FRAGIL... El desayuno fue excelente...SPINACH PIE, YOGURT, JUICE..DRINKS..a comparación con el vuelo en otra aerolínea de una amiga...sólo crackers and drink.. GRACIAS AEGEANS AIRLINES. .!!"
Cons: "Buuu...no reparten más los riquísimos caramelos de Grecia.. OUZO CANDY'S. ..!!"
Cons: "Excessive and undisclosed baggage fees"
Pros: "N8ce airline attendants and they even served lunch!"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Friendly people, quick service."
Cons: "They charged 35 euro for one luggage. That's too high and nowhere during my reservation did it say that, KAYAK!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "There was zero leg room to sit down and the chairs had no cushion, such an uncomfortable time"
Pros: "Loved the free food and coffee, the only airline that I've flown that offers such anenities"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Checkin and boarding was fast. Short flight; only one and a half hours."
Cons: "Food was minimal."
Cons: "Same as on the flight to Larnaca"
Pros: "cleen quiet and beutifull crew"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by an awful 8 hours. We were stuck at the airport through the entire morning and missed half our day in Santorini. There was very poor communication between the airline and us so we were utterly frustrated at the experience."
Cons: "Not being able to bring coffee purchased 200 feet from the gate on board was irritating"
Cons: "The ticket didnt specify the type of economy class so we had to pay for extra baggage"
Cons: "I had only one piece of luggage to check in, and I had to pay for it as if it were a second piece which we sometimes have to pay extra for. In which world would a traveler to a outcry country travel without luggage???"

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Never booked this flight

Pros: "Nice food"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
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."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
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: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."

No online check-in, so not ideal for business travellers having to queue to check-in at Zurich airport

It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.

Pros: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"
Cons: "The premium economy should be eliminated and should be labeled for what it is: couch class with some perks"
Pros: "Feel like reacist Company"
Cons: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "They forced me to ceck my trolley because i had a suit with me!!! And the airplane wasn’t even full. Even worst they allowed some pieces of “hand luggage” that were double the maximum allowed size"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."
Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Pros: "Plane was new, and seatback screen responsive and functional."
Cons: "Economy seats not very comfortable, very tightly packed together"
Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Cons: "shuttle from terminal to plane takes a long time. Flight left late"
Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "But delayed and lost baggage"
Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Pros: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Cons: "Nothing to like"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "The crew nice people, boarding was fast and pleasant, the flight was pretty good"
Cons: "nA"
Pros: "Staff was responsive, effective and pleasant; Nice selection of digestifs too. Food was decent and, in airline level, even good."
Cons: "The audio system is outdated with unreliable touch-screen that makes it frustrating to navigate."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "The service and food were excellent plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Pros: "Punctuallity"
Cons: "Bording far away, got my cabin luggage and everyone elses into the cellar because ¨it didn´t fit in the plane¨. There was plenty of room, I had breakable stuff in my luggage, didn´t get the chance to choose. No entertainment AT ALL. Confort: no leg space at all. Not an AirFrance plane, subcontracted. Lousy food."
Cons: "We tried to check our bags through Charles DeGaulle onto our connecting Air Canada flight and the agent refused to even discuss it. Pretty bad service."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"
Pros: "Spacious cabin, clean and bright. Attentive crew offering snacks and a drink for an hour flight."
Cons: "Although incoming plane arrived late, flight home arrived 20 minutes early."
Pros: "Boarding efficient, Air France flight to Paris was brief and pleasant."
Cons: "Seat a bit uncomfortable"

Flight delayed a lot for unexplained reasons Wrong Baggage carousel number announced in the plane caused unnecessary delay at baggage claim

Please keep the flight schedule. I missed connection flight due to delayed Abudhabi to JFK flight. I will reach home late by 15 hours. For outbound journey also, I got stuck at Abudhabi for about 8 hours on 13-14th November night. Very Bad experience!

Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "Caboj crew were unfriendly and bordering on being rude. The basic rule of any service is to smile but when you've cabin staff whi look grumpy on a 7h flight that speaks of poor training of cabin staff. Etihad needs to do much better to retain customers on this hot segment."
Pros: "crew was good. Seat was good but it was a business class seat in a 787-9; so it should be good."
Cons: "wines were mediocre which was balanced out by the good quality of the food. Brussels to Abu Dabhi boarding was a little chaotic with coach and front cabin passesgers packed in a single bus. Noticed many older passengers standing for the longish bus ride."
Cons: "Narrow seats"
Pros: "Every thing. Was good"
Cons: "The seat’s"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "Smaller que in Abu Dhabi at security"
Pros: "This crew was better that last flight overall"
Cons: "Better seating arrangements"
Pros: "The flight was amazing"
Cons: "The problem of the kids shouting and shouting one hour"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "Crew is ok. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian food was terrible and of no quality. The inflight tamil and Hindi movies could have been better and newer."
Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."
Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"
Pros: "I liked everything but I still could not find out if I was getting credit on the frequent flyer sustem"
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Cons: "I have checked my baggage allowance for this trip when I first paid and it was 2 checked in bags. However, I had to pay additional 185 Euros for adding my second checked in bag."
Pros: "There is nothing much to like about the flight. The only good thing about Etihad is the pre clearance option at Abu Dhabi that saves a lot of time after landing in the US"
Cons: "14+ hours of flying time where it can be done under 10 to 12 hours. Food is not good at all."
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: "They had to delay the flight for those who were arriving from Durban because of the delayed flight."
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"
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: "very nice but long hours"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The bathroom were not at all clean and not maintained. The options for food was very limited to no choice."

Pros: "Crew was supportive"
Cons: "Food was a huge let down"
Cons: "Lost baggage at LA after deboarding no body guide from where to collect baggage where to go all mismanaged"

Pros: "Nice staff at luggage check-in and the flight. Good experience for first time international flier."

Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"
Pros: "US pre clearance"
Cons: "Crew was very rude. Food was not good. Meals were served late. No adequate snacks on board"
Cons: "No dedicated bus or transport for first or business passengers!"
Pros: "The flights were all right."
Cons: "Original flight cancelled after a 7 hour wait. $172 hotel expense...not excited about this after traveling from India to Abu Dubai then to JFK."
Pros: "Blanket was provided."
Cons: "The crew attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. Also, very, very long lines to check in taking more than one hour to get boarding tickets. It is freezing on both planes."
Cons: "Lacking in Hosiptality"
Pros: "Despite being a totally full flight, it was comfortable, with prompt food service and good entertainment options."
Cons: "- The crew member in our section was great, but two of the other crew were totally over it and were blunt and rude, both to passengers and to the other crew! - Etihad entertainment only available in the air, not gate-to-gate like other carriers such as Virgin Australia. - Rear toilets ran out of paper towels and seat liners in last few hours of flight. - Gluten-free meal options were substandard."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "Food. Not served according to the menu. Kochi to Abu Dhabi -vegetarian. Abu Dhabi to Chicago __vegetarian no options. -Vegetarian food not tasty.At last before landing in Chicago some non veg."
Cons: "Food was not good. A meals was served only 12 hrs apart. There are jnternational travellers who feel hungry in between and airlin needs to be considerate of it."
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."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Okay"
Pros: "Staff was accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Aircraft condition, smelly."
Pros: "Nothing. It is not a choice airline for at least international."
Cons: "I was coming from Düsseldorf with changeover at Abu Dhabi and they did not load my luggage."
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "There was one crew member who was sympathetic to our plight, we appreciated her candor and whatever help she was able to give on this long flight."
Cons: "We were forced to sit on foul smelling seats for the 15 hour flight. The only option given to us was to deplane with barely 2 minutes of time to decide as the aircraft doors were being shut. Check-in took more than an hour and 15 minutes with a slow computer system."
