There was no communication on that."
Pros: "Not much. Free shower at the airport was welcome."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi airport is poorly designed, crowded and confusing. For some bizarre reason, we had to exit the boarding area (we had arrived very early), and then re-enter at the end of a VERY long line, then dispose of the water we had bought AFTER we had already gone through one set of security checks, to have another bag search inside the boarding area. (???) For a 14 hour flight, you might expect a bit more in the line of amenities (like the Singapore Airlines pamper kit). It’s also nice to know on a long haul what you might be eating (a la Singapore Airlines menu card), but not on Etihad. Also the movies on offer through the entertainment system were a bit stale and dated. They also had no arrivals cards in English, and finding them at Sydney Airport is a nightmare. (Why do we still do the stupid things, anyway?) Then, to top it all off, after a tiring flight, Sydney Airport put on their best demonstration of appalling and confusing crowd control at the baggage carousels and getting through customs. Used to think Etihad was a quality experience, but it doesn’t seem so any more."
Pros: "Service was perfect"
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was completely full. In this old planes you don't have much space especially when you want to do some work in economic class."
Cons: "Hostesses were kind of biased. Entertainment was not too fantastic, flight was excessively delayed"
Cons: "I am waiting at the airport to catch a flight tonLusaka. This is because I was bumped off my floor flight that I have no seat. Not sure when I will get ion that flight."
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was good as well."
Cons: "The delay was painful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 hours late outbound. return flight cancelled. made us wait at the aiport for 12 hours. worst flight of my life."
Pros: "They should send us prior notice of changes in flights. My flights where delayed by almost 6 hours both inbound and outbound bound"
Cons: "Check in agents should do their job as per their description not wasting our time and keychatting with their collegues"
Pros: "The whole trip was awesome....comfortable and plenty on movies on board"
Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
