Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"

Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"

Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"

Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"

Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "Price & accuracy"
Pros: "flight was very empty, so crew very accommodating. boarding simple with so few"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Had argument with a old man in the next row over serving glass of water"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."
Pros: "A bit of delay, high traffic. New MCT airport is much better than before."
Pros: "The pre-boarding, courtesy extended, everything was good. No complaints."
Cons: "The long hop because of my age"
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."
Pros: "We felt safe and the flight landed a bit early."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, couldn’t hear zones being called, etc. assigned seats had us in the middle and basically so confined we couldn’t eat when they gave us food. Very uncomfortable. I had such a bad experience I got online and paid for isle seats for the return trip, and thought maybe that’s what they wanted all along ..,"
Pros: "Professionalism of flight crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft."

Pros: "Fast checkin with Online Checkin. Only had to go to baggage dropoff. Nice onboard service. Like the choice of good entertainment for such short flight. Several options to watch."
Cons: "Flight had some delay. One person on-ground very rude and totally out of line in the way to treat customers. Under no circumstance any airline employee should lecture a passenger about time schedules and such. I had read the rules online and was aware of the timings required if checking in online. I was surprised being accustomed to good service from this airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding is complicated . They didn't allow cabin baggage and laptop bag together. Only 1 is allowed"
Cons: "Cannot choose seats without paying a fee which is ridiculous. There is no way to get a window seat on the plane. I have never travelling on a non window seat in my 20 years of flying until this time."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "Loved how professional, courteous,pleasant and efficient all flight attendants were."

Cons: "Bathroom door broken I was locked inside for several minutes"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be friendly"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Cons: "Seats elbow room was insufficient."
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."
Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"
Pros: "Lots of food"
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Touch screen at seat was not responsive. Took many presses on the screen to get it to respond."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Pros: "Best airline I have had the chance to fly with. Right up there with Virgin - this time it surpassed. Great staff, lots of room, clean, amenities (blanket, pillow, toothbrush, eye mask, earphones for the movie ), 2 quality meals + meal voucher for overlay redeemable at a variety of options."
Cons: "Response time (over an hour) on requests. I don't believe there was internet available on the second flight?"
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. We sat in the bus that was supposed to take us to the aircraft, for about 30 minutes inhaling diesel fumes to a point where I started to feel sick."
Pros: "Frequency of service and inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "All the kids. Too many. Too many crying babies. It was like a day care in our section. I've never seen anything like it. Also, the ICE interface is a little confusing. And the touch screen a little weak."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very small boarding area to board such a large plane. Broken headphone jacks on all the seats. Flight ran out of food options. Toilets ran out of soap. Overall comfort of the seat was mediocre at best. It took about 2.5 hours to serve the first meal. By the time we got our dinner, it was 1am (flight took off at 10)."
Pros: "Great crew who were prompt with service and friendly!!"
Pros: "I enjoying having an aisle seat plus two empty seats next to me. I appreciated that you are conserving plastic cups. Keep up the conservation!"

Cons: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated.

Pros: "On time"

We were not allowed to board our flight and the passport office is closed until Tuesday. As a result we lost $700 dollars to the hotel booked and Lufthansa may not reimburse us for the flights which were over $2000. Absolutely horrible service, no help. Negligent in informing us rapier when i chose seats for the flight. The flight was also delayed 2 and a half hours. We now have no vacation for which we paid $3000."

Pros: "Indian meal and movie options"
Pros: "It was one of the best flight experiences in my life. Flights on time and suitcases delivered immediately."

Pros: "New plane. Very nice."

Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Pros: "The entertainment was terrific for a long flight. Staff was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Bégaye were lost."
Pros: "Crew was professional and food was very good. Entertainment was really good."
Pros: "The food was amazing with good And comfortable air conditioning. Cleanliness was maintained as well."

Cons: "I have loads of complaints about the entire crew and etihad airlines and I will file my official complaint against them. The space here isn’t enough to write my complain"
Pros: "Nice crew, seat reclined a lot, great food"

Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"
Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"
Cons: "Very old aircraft"
Cons: "The experience with travel agent (vayama) was worse than etihad, everyone know that etihad is not the same level like before, but booking through kayak- bayama was the worst where they didn’t reply on all my emails/ even wheb they did they didn’t answered mg questions, they couldn’t help if i want to book my seat or change my return flight. This is not my fiest time to use kayak app but this time was thr worst and it changed my mindset about travel agents, unfortunately my friends were correct when they said to book directly through airline not kayak..!!!"
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"
Pros: "Leaving the aircraft."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned, this is the worst airline I've ever flown. We got stuck with $350 in baggage fees, because a clause stating that we were not allowed a check-in bag was buried in the fine print for our ticket purchase. The website was not working prior to our return flight, and if it had worked, we would have been able to get at least a discount on this outrageous fee. But , despite this, (we took a screenshot) the counter staff in Abu Dhabi would not give us the discount. A baggage fee for $350 dollars for one bag? There is word for this. Thievery."
Pros: "You can’t beat the quality of service, seating, and other amenities you arrive fresh even after a 14 hour flight"
Cons: "The variety of movies is not that great needs to be improved some series have only one episode which defeats the purpose. While others have more so you cannot watch anything really with series."

Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"
Pros: "Decent plane Decent food Decent service"
Cons: "Abu Dhabi Airport Is The worst! Going through the transit area is hell. The wall of people extended out of the hall and up the stairs. Shear hell"
Cons: "From Washington to Abu Dhabi was terrible small sweats less room for leg's."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and the food is very good."
Cons: "The seats were very marrow and crammed"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take the flight for the reasons mentioned above."
Pros: "Check in in Frankfurt. Black lady. Extremely helpful. Went out of her way. This is the people you need in the front line."
Cons: "Terribly old planes. Bad or non existent cabin service. Food not acceptable. Plastic noodle bowls with hot water. !?? Really!!"
Pros: "Preclerance system in Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "The arrival time of the flight"
Cons: "Kids were crying most of the trip and the seats were so we couldnt sleep and when the food came they give you options hoping that you will choose what they got on their mind and they end up giving everyone the same type of food."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Customer care"
Cons: "So tight and noise , and i think this kind of chairs not comfortable for long distances, mean while other airline's can provide me the same price maybe little bit more but comfortable and better amenities"
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are way too small and cramped."
Cons: "Bad service. Crew not friendly. Frustrated at check-in counters - longest time ever, stupid check for cabin bag. I chose etihad for first time, I came with the same bag with different airlines never got a problem. Everyone was angry as only half inch their bags were buffered than the frame. Worst experience"
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Cons: "Nothing much of dislike"
Pros: "1. Consider improving vegetarians food options. Particularly from Chicago to Abu Dhabi & Abh Dhabi to Chennai was unsatisfactory. Jet airlines also served horrible vegetarian food between Chennai and Abu Dhabi 2. Excessive connection times at Abu Dhabi & also in Chicago/New York. Consider reasonable connecting times (3-4 hours). 3. Relatively long time for check in"
Pros: "Meal was good"
Cons: "Was charged USD 350 for one overweight bag. Asked Etihad beforehand if I could use a 72 transit visa to enter china on my current itenary. They said it was fine. I was stopped at the gatein Seoul by Asians who refused to board me on the plane because my itenary was incorrect. Will never fly either of these airlines again, and am currently seeking repayment for my unintended 4 day stay in Seoul"
Cons: "movie selection poor."
Cons: "There was an issue with my ticket/ boarding pass from JFK to Raleigh. It was said that the exchange ticket did not reflect in the system for Jetblue and that I will have to call their call center and figure out the issue. I was lucky that I found a staff from jetblue crew who could figure out the issue and help me out. If it was not for her, I could have faced difficulties."
Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."

Cons: "Comfort, economy class really sucks in this airline"
Pros: "Nothing specific..."
Cons: "I know this sector is can be tough on the crew... But got a very routine service with not much eye contact... For my coffee was given one sugar/creamer... Before I could ask for another the steward moved away... Didnt bother to check if I am fine...., Also, they ran out of water around landing time :( Entertainment was not available until after 10 or 15 mins take off and cut 10 mins before landing... Felt like second class..."
Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Seats were smaller in size. However, legroom was fine for me."
Pros: "Crew service was OK,"
Cons: "They make too much fussy about the ledge weight even it was few Lbs. over. they select the worse sits in the plane for my family. Very last row of sits. the worse site in the plane. even though we were the first in the line during the checking. This was the first time was with Etihad."
