Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Turkish airline is the best"
"Waiting to much .more then 2 hours for lagage in chicago airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time and flying even with COVID-19 restrictions"
Cons: "Food was cold and bland, sack meals both the same."
Pros: "plane was clean, bording went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight attendants were no where to be found most of the flight. They didnt walk up and down the aisles for literally hours before we saw them again. Never offered water during a 11 hour flight, they only came around deal meal service time. But the time in between meals, we seldom saw them."
Pros: "Not much really"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"
Pros: "Overall is perfect"
Pros: "Everything was great one of the best airlines I've flown on"
Pros: "Service, food, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."
Cons: "Boarding took longer time Than it should."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment choices Good, not excellent, food Comfortable seats"
Cons: "I think cleanliness is an issue both in the cabin and the lavatories"
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. A lot to choose from. Provided small travel bag for the flight. Airplane was clean They offered for the first drink a homemade lemon with fresh mint which was wonderful. Will definitely fly them again. Great price"
Cons: "Low sodium meal was not tasty. Could not finish it due to lack texture."
Cons: "Personal and service were grea!"
Pros: "They are professional all the way. They take great care of their passengers. The food was very good. They made sure we had as a comfortable trip as one can"
Cons: "Plane was hot on the flight going TK 6. Flight on the way back TK 5 was much better."
Cons: "Delay in boarding by 90 minutes; I think it was a power failure in the boarding gate...computers didn't work. No air conditioning either. Ugh"
Cons: "was unable to upgrade tickets in advance off of web site. Others in Greece and Italy tried to assist as well and found same and when calling 800 numbers the calls were not going thru or hold time was overly extreme. Was told at Athens check in to upgrade in Instanbul and to go to transfer desk to get upgrade. An upgrade of $1200.00 Euro's is extreme Being packed like sardines for a 10 plus hour flight is not good. It is also unhealthy. Turkish Airlines should consider something other then the 777 for any international flying."
Cons: "i liked everything"
Pros: "Everything you want in an overnight international flight. Enjoyed the food."
Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The seating I needed more leg room"
Pros: "The staff is very nice and good service and very helpful"
Cons: "The Delay and the rough landing"
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew, surprisingly great food, and nice drink options."
Cons: "AC is on initially, then it gets really hot and uncomfortable after the first meal service. i asked a CA if she could help, but the temperature didn't change. This was the pattern for all 4 flights I took recently. Everything else was great though!"
Pros: "It was a very fine flight Kosher food was fine Only problem was very long lines at boarding and repetitive"
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Cons: "Terrible in-flight service; flight attendants not corteous; limited seat space; bags delayed on final destination. Horrible!!!"
Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."
Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"
Pros: "Flight attendant in my section seemed annoyed with everything the entire flight. My interactions with her were all fine, but I saw her get obviously frustrated with multiple customers that weren't doing anything out of the ordinary. The rest of the crew seemed pleasant. Seats were incredibly tight for a ten hour flight. Loved the movie/show selection and the food was on the better end of any airline food I've had."
Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"
Pros: "Everyone did a great job handling the new ban of all large electronics. This new rule imposed by the US is completely ridiculous and rather illogical; however, Turkish Airlines did a great job of making it as minimally burdensome as possible."
Cons: "Splitting passengers up into male and female lines in order to be processed before boarding the flight seemed to create a lot of anxiety for passengers traveling with their significant others. I would advise figuring out a way to efficiently process groups without having to split them up by gender."
Pros: "Our flight from Zanzibar took off 40 minutes late and we made up no time in the air. We arrived at the Istanbul airport 20 minutes before our next flight was supposed to take off. Of course the gates were nowhere near each other so we ran as fast as we possibly could to catch our next flight. When we finally got to the gate, the employees were so kind to rush us through each step of security and get us to the door and there had to be at least 7 or 8 people who were working and doing whatever they could to get us on that flight. It meant so much! We had been up since 2am to catch our previous flight and just wanted to get home to our families and dogs! We were so grateful they worked so hard to get us on the plane!"
Cons: "Because we were late, we got what I'm guessing were the last two seats on the plane. The window seats in the last two rows. It was EXTREMELY tight back there. I'm just glad we were able to get on the plane but the comfort level was really not great and for a 10 hour flight, that stunk."
Pros: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Cons: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was very nice."
Cons: "Bath room was not clean during the flight. Flight attendants can be nicer."
Pros: "I would definitely fly on Turkish Air again. The seats were roomy in comparison to other airlines I have flown on. The inflight entertainment was excellent in comparison as well. I thought the food and beverages were pretty good for an airline as well."
Cons: "Just the concern that people were not instructed to stay seated until the airplane came to a complete halt. People were out of their seats and getting luggage out of the overhead bins well before the plane had taxied up to the gate. Please make an announcement to keep passengers safe. Also, the cabin crew could have been a little more helpful to passengers. They kind of stood around and did nothing when a gentleman and his child got on the airplane and other people were clearly sitting in his seats. The man had to straighten out the situation with the people who were in the wrong seats. The flight crew needed to have been assertive, ask politely for people's boarding passes and taken care of the conflict, not the customer. My flight was late and I missed my connection to Seattle. Turkish Air did put us up for the night and provided meals without a hassle."
Pros: "Our 11.5 hour flight took 16 hours due to weather in Chicago. We were forced to land in Detroit for over 2 hours. The crew smiled while they answered questions and dealt with some very difficult passengers. The food was Turkish, but very tasty and in large portions. The entertainment included several movies that had just recently been released to DVD. Overall it was great service."
Cons: "The communication was not what it should have been. While in Detroit, we were often left for extended periods of time with no update or information as to when we would be able to complete our flight. I realize they were at the mercy of O'Hare, but they should have made some announcement every 15 minutes or so just to "keep us posted" if nothing else. Also, there was quite a bit of confusion for passengers whose final destination was Detroit. I had to explain to the Flight Attendant that they needed to explain to the passengers why they couldn't deplane there. She phoned the pilot and he provided an appropriate explanation. This really my only complaint."
Pros: "The Transfer desk granted our request to switch our flight from Istanbul to Chicago to Istanbul to Los Angeles. A meeting that I had initially scheduled in Chicago was cancelled and would have meant an extra day of travel and hotel stay. By allowing us to go directly to LAX we got home a day earlier and didn't have the hassle of going through customs, checking in & out of a hotel and going through another set of security checks with all our bags. Additionally, we had great service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "Even though they had at least an hour to transfer the bags from the Chicago flight and put it on the LAX flight, the bags didn't make it and they didn't find them for about 24 hours but did deliver them to our home at 1:45 AM (@37 hours after arriving)"
Pros: "At least there was a good selection of movies"
Cons: "The crew just couldn't get it right, half our section didn't get the hot towels before takeoff, the attendant had run out half way down the aisle then forgot to come back. Distribution of food was handled like it was the first time the crew was attempting it in a moving plane. They couldn't get orders right, handing out vegetarian dishes when non-veg dishes were requested. Running out of ice for the drinks."
Pros: "Courteous and accommodating staff, delicious meals, and super entertainment. Punctual."
Cons: "I travelled in Business Class from Istanbul to Chicago. The service was not at all impressive and the crew were not very helpful. I asked for water and champagne with my dinner. Champagne never arrived, even after I asked for it again. My half-full glass of water was taken away halfway through dinner with no explanation and never replaced. I asked for water five times before I was finally brought a bottle of water over 30 minutes later when they were being passed around to everyone. Meanwhile, the two flight attendants I asked for water walked by several times picking up trash... not sure what was so difficult about bringing me a glass of water."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "If you are flying Turkish from the US or from Istanbul to the US or other far away destination, for the love of God, do not fly on the B777-300. Did that twice from Chicago to Istanbul and back, and the seats in economy are a real killer....very tight and uncomfortable. On the other hand, if you have a choice of Turkish aircrafts b777 vs AB330-300, you will do yourself a favor by selecting a flight on an AB330-300. Slighter smaller plane then the 777 but a little more comfortable in coach. So you are warned......and by the way, you will select a two seater combination rather than being stuck in the middle.....If you are stuck in the middle, always do your best to get at least an isle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Airbus 330-300 Loved a little more leg room in economy. Also the FA very really on their feet and eager to help. Always with a smile on their faces. I would recomand flying Turkish overseas but only on an AB 330-300 coach configuration."
Pros: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
Cons: "boarding was chaos seats were tiny and food was abysmal"
Cons: "Crew seemed harried, and even ignored me at times."
Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."
Cons: "3 hour delay. No announcements. Had to use my passport just to use the restroom. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."
"I like that I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good entertainment. Didn’t bother me too much."
Cons: "Better good. More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Lots of screaming children. Not much to be done about that."
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Lot of turbulence. Provided videos/entertainment without providing headphones"
Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Pros: "The crew was understanding and sympathetic to the customer's frustration with a delayed flight."
Cons: "Delta should have figured out a way to not delay the flight. Every flight was delayed."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Cons: "Bring back the Narita to Minneapolis."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"

Cons: "nothing bad about this flight"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Cons: "The customer service and the strict nonsense rules"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."
Cons: "Customer Service was horrid except for last attendant. At one point one rep sent us running out of a secured area to retrieve our luggage and then go to British Airways for connection. We had 45 minutes in front of BA ticket rep to get us on BA182 and they took so long we missed the boarding due to reps slow processing to issue ticket. Then we were stuck outside of secured area."
Pros: "Love the inflight entertainment and the usb plug for phones. Flight left on time and go in a little early"
Cons: "Did not love getting charged $2 for headphones and the girl sitting next to me getting them for free. Super annoying"
Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It was crowded and cramped."
Cons: "The flight was quite smooth."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Security line, waiting an hour to take off, no time for drink service. Awful flight"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "Entertainment system is great."
Cons: "Every interaction with crew seemed dismissive and coerced. They behaved as if they didn't want to be there."
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "I loved his pilot. His take of and landing were so smooth. I wish I could request him and his co-pilot for every trip I take. The flight attendants served and did not hang around and harass you like some do. They were efficient."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "The flight left on time and we got in 15 minutes before the scheduled time. Awesome service from gate to gate."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for my bags and still purchase food on plane. The price for ticket is already overpriced to begin with. Fuel is cheaper, the planes burn less fuel due to updated design and still the tickets are three times the cost of five years ago. No one should have to pay for bags period. Show that you really care."
Pros: "Friendly staff and crew. On time efficient boarding. Security in SEA-TAC less than 5 min. Different snacks both flights. Prompt service. On time. Power sources at seats worked."
Cons: "Airport gate area in LAX filthy. No seats. Garbage cans overflowing. Bathrooms smelled like New Orleans street on a Sunday morning. Entertainment system broken."
Pros: "The crew addressed me by name"
Cons: "Wasn't lonng eough"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "Because I refused to pay extra money after booking my family of three on your flight, you separated us into middle seats scattered in the back of the airplane. I believe this is evil underhanded extortion after you had already published price and I had agreed by clicking to buy the ticket."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Cons: "Sitting as they had to fix a broken plane. Missing my connecting flight and getting in late."
Pros: "I loved getting an email with my baggage claim number."
Cons: "The food was the same snack they give in the evening and afternoon, even though it was morning- pretzel, peanuts, or cookies."
"The fact that my flight from LHR to Abu Dhahbi is cancelled, I am only frustrated about not being home. I most probably will never fly Etihad again."
Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19 still waiting for refund ??"
Pros: "Staff was efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent and nicely served."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."
Cons: "- The plane was set to a freezing temperature all the time made it really uncomfortable flight for most of the passengers. - Etihad mostly runs short of veggie food and passengers are asked to go for non veg option. Not cool."
Pros: "Lounge in Abu Dhabi was great!"
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"
Cons: "No sweets were served in any meals. Not even a chocolate candy."
Cons: "I'm not picky with food but the Food was extremely bad tasting and at best tastelesss. That should never be served Anywhere! It was so bad that the first thing I did in O'hare is eat a meal, it never happened to me on an international trip. Drinks (soda and coffe) were limited and there was a shortage in them. Entertainment system was not working Plane was packed, spaces very tight"
Pros: "I liked everything but I still could not find out if I was getting credit on the frequent flyer sustem"
Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."
Cons: "Carry on baggage space was very limited, or passengers were allowed to take more than they should. Also, the sitting and boarding at the Abu Dhabi airport was very insufficient for a full flight."
Cons: "Since our custom and emigration checking was in Abu Dhabi, in Chicago, the flight used a domestic terminal. For our final leg of the flight, we had to haul all six pieces of luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 3. Then we were told that our American Airlines flight from Chicago to Kalamazoo is not a valid one. So we were booked to a different flight 12 hours later. We had to stay in Chicago for 12 hours on our own. Neither Etihad nor American Airlines provide any support for that time period in Chicago. Since it was Etihad ticket, According to international norm, Etihad should take the responsibility for this problem and compensated passengers."
Pros: "The staff was outstanding. The plane was older and looked it."
Cons: "The food was just barely edible. The choice of movies was pathetic. If it hadn't been for the staff this would have been an unacceptable experience."
Pros: "Very courteous and professional crew"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "1. Seat changes are done last minute despite booking the seats online with out informing us. I felt that there was no point securing online seating early. Difficult to adjust seats in the last minute. I was separated from my family. Given wrong information about seats. Had to real work with staff to finally get seats adjusted. Not very easy to work staff. Understanding of English is not that good. 2.Had problems checking the luggage all through despite connection was through star alliance. 3.Had to wait in airport in transit to get boarding passes. Did not understand why it was despite having booked seats early. 4.Seats provided were not good. 5.Also head phones didn't work. I told staff three times and still no response. Finally gave up i had booked because ratings were good. But service was not even close to expectations. Dissapointed."
Cons: "I wasn't able to take the flight for the reasons mentioned above."
Cons: "The seats we had were very hard to recline. For the first 8 hrs of the flight w my sister and I could not get the seats to recline The flight attendants would pass us by without asking we wanted anything to drink. We felt totally ignored particularly dine we were seat in the center two seats in the middle section."
Pros: "The entertainment options are much appreciated. The crew was cheery and helpful. The meals were tasty."
Cons: "It's a really, really tight fit in Economy. Super hard on the knees and I'm a short person. It was even hard for my 7 year old to get into semi comfortable position to sleep. On the way over from Chicago to Abu Dhabi, the crew walked by with offers of water regularly and even snacks...we really missed this courtesy on the way back from Abu Dhabi to Chicago. Water was only offered during meals and it was hard to flag down an attendant for water."
Cons: "Food could have been spaced out more evenly during the flight. First meal came out like 3 or 4 hours into the flight, second meal came out like 8 or 9 hours after that"
Pros: "The service and comfort!"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing and no one is responding to number presented on the sheet in Chicago, very bad. Please get my baggage to me and be kind to the customers in aftermath of the services."
Pros: "Professional staff, super helpful and accommodating, great with kids. Food is great if you like Mediterranean. Movies, TV, video games, music all free. Neck pillows for everyone on trans-Atlantic flights."
Cons: "New policy (thanks TSA) that prohibits laptops in the cabin. Have to check them and risk getting smashed."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Seat in front reclined too far back Fewer food options despite pre-requested meal."
Pros: "Bad services over all"
Cons: "Lemo services"
Pros: "Services n hospitality"
Cons: "Washroom maintenance can be better."
Pros: "I like their perfect schedule. Their crew members are also very helpful."
Cons: "The first main meal was the same as in the flight from kolkata to abu dhabi. I don't get non veg option. I got very bad smell from my next passenger."
Cons: "My kids are 14 and 15, traveling as unaccompanied Minors to visit their dad in Kuwait. We chose a Etihad because they would only have to be on 1 plane by themselves. I put them safely on the plane in Chicago, and their Dad flew to Abu Dhabi to meet them when they got off the plane and fly together to Kuwait. On the return flight they fly to Abu Dhabi with no problem. Then, they try to board their connecting flight to Chicago, and they tell my kids they overbooked the flight and they can't travel for at lest 2 more days. If they had to remove someone from the plane, how in the hell do they choose a 14 and 15 year old traveling alone to stay in Abu Dhabi for 2 full days! I'm livid!"
Pros: "Service in the Economy class was a nightmare. The air hostesses do not respond fast, take hours to get a glass of water and sometimes even don't bother to get you what you have asked for."
Cons: "The flight is a 777 or 787. This is the flight has cramped up legroom in economy. It's a 17 hour flight and the aircraft is not comfortable at all in economy. The food is a hot or a miss. They have 3 items on the menu but chances are by the time they get to you they run out of the non veg options and you are stuck eating dal and pulav. Flight attendants on the flight were okay, not super helpful if you are traveling in economy"
Cons: "Hair was served in the food and the etihad airlines did not do anything other than offer a mere 10k goodwill miles and said even that they don't do but we're doing me a favor by doing so. I would never travel again on this airline ever."
Cons: "There was a bad odor of the bathroom, also I asked a blanket from the crew, then after 20 minutes I got it. Also the little rude dealing from the one of the crew. Little islamic programs"
Cons: "Food was too salty! Crew needs to be more helpful if passengers are non English speaking; they could show them how to stretch the chair and pull it up while eating. Crew could also ask passengers what kind of movies or entertainment they like and show them how to operate!"
Cons: "They took close to one hour to check us in and give us boarding pass. Once it was delayed, with no time to get things in time for security and boarding we had to rush with two kids. Although there was one checked bag allowed for infant according to the reservations they charged us 100$ for additional bag. Despite them delaying the Check in process they said if I don't pay for the checked bag I will miss my flight. This is becoming more and more of a problem with American Airlines and looks like Etihad cares less for this and they simply told me in Chicago that it was American Airlines issue and not theirs! This is totally frustrating and I will avoid American Airlines connections And future flights with Etihad as well. International travelers watch out for connections with American Airlines."
Pros: "Emigration and customs at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "Leg room between seats are too small and in flight service was not good"
Pros: "I thought the food was awesome, and not just for airline food. The vegetarian that I had was excellent. Crew was very friendly and helpful, plane was clean, seats comfortable. On the long flight we were all supplied (even in economy!) earplugs, a neck pillow, blanket and earphones. Everyone has their own little screen and the TV and movie selections were good, like having cable TV in the air, but no commercials."
Cons: "The ear plugs looked pretty cheesy, but I had my own and never actually tried them. I could always use more legroom, but that is a standard complaint I have with all airlines."
Pros: "Ground staff was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "On flight, the staff seemed to care little for even the smallest of request. On a 15 hr flight from Abu Dabhi to Chicago, I asked twice for coffee, once for juice and once for sandwich, and each time the staff told me to wait, once they were busy, once they were going to serve food in 45 minutes and once the sandwich was put away (I repeat, "put away"). My wife asked for mango juice, and they said, they do not have any left, they only had apple and orange juice. Within 10 min when they replenished the cart, they had mango juice. It seems that they were just plain lazy to do even to cater to the smallest request."
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival was on time. Check in staff very helpful."
Pros: "I was actually very sick on my 15 hour flight, no idea what it was, maybe bad food. The staff ensured that I had water, crackers and even had medication that saved me from the most miserable stomach pains I've ever had. Thank you again!"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclined and I couldn't even use my tray at all. Had to hold me food and drinks in my hand. Unbelievable!!!!!! Horrible experience."
Pros: "The crew especially in business class were rude to others. We had an infant and the crew had no milk. the food options for baby was bad."
Cons: "The crew especially in business class were rude to others. We had an infant and the crew had no milk. the food options for baby was bad."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Food can be better and limited access to WiFi (free) would be great. It was too expensive per flight."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "In other wise excellent service, carry on bag size policy is not practical, Please keep it similar to other airlines. Please don't expect us to get a separate bag size to fly on Etihad. This one headache which could remove Etihad from our future travel consideration."
Cons: "They could not deliver my bags to the destination.. And chose to say all.my 4 bags were with customs.. The flight was delayed by 8 hrs and the way they handled the passengers was pathetic.. None showed any concern. They did not provide food during the wait time.. Every one just refers to go to some other person and no one answers.. This was the case for all the passengers.. I really hated to travel with them..they could not even give proper connecting flights after the delay despite stressing. I had call them and confirm my tickets after I was actually given a ticket in the airport.. I wasted 2 hrs and found that they gave me 2 diff flight for me an my wife despite me asking them.. And finally they told it was done.. Next day I try to check in and AA says there is no ticket.. I call etihad again, they booked to some other destination.. Had to change.. My travel with etihad was really very agonizing.. The food was even worse.. They judge u when u ask for non veg.. They said we take u guys don't eat non veg!!!! Pathetic crew..."
Cons: "Bad food choice for meals. Poor boarding sequence. Parking aircraft on cargo Area and then using buses to move passengers to the terminal at Abu Dhabi. Older planes compared to the new A380 on Emirates. Poor crew performance (not keeping up with the cleaniness of restrooms). 9 hour overlay at Abu Dhabi and no meal or other voucher."
Pros: "1. Good food with healthy options. 2. Clean bathrooms and always kept up 3. Polite and accommodating staff"
Cons: "1. Entertainment system is a dinosaur. Touch screens could be lot more responsive or please make the entertainment system a BYOD model - I'll bring my own tablet, etc. 2. The seat spacing between seats and between rows could slightly increase. I do know that airlines are constantly trying to keep prices low by increasing the number of passengers...but I believe there is room for a little bit of compromise there. The spacing now is only a tad bit roomier than a domestic flight...that seems a bit too greedy by the airlines."
Pros: "I will never fly with Etihad in the future. My bag was delayed for 7 days and the only retribution I will receive is about $100 from Etihad. The airline is almost impossible to reach since they have extremely limited hours in their baggage claims dept and it took about 5 days before they even located my bag. It was another 2 days before I actually received my bag."
Cons: "Best Airlines"
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset. Now I have to get more Covid Testing done and that will cost approx. $700 and new plane tickets. JustFly.com's customer service is misleading and deceiving. And they blocked my number."
Cons: "Background check your booking agencies and their agents."
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"
Cons: "Better seat"
Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late departure"
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "New aircraft with comfortable business seats"
Cons: "More than 4 hours delay! Not all selection from food menu available"

Pros: "Punctuality in Punctuality"
Cons: "Everything's is ok"
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."

Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"
Pros: "Customer care was good"
Cons: "I suspect the problem of luggage started with Alitalia my first leg"
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to my call despite me calling dor assistance every 10 min. I had an issue with my tv screen and was not able to use the in flight entertainment I am very dissatisfied with such poor care and professionalism from your staff. This was something that should not have taken 45 min to get solved and even worse despite the call light being on multiple flight attendants walked by and did not even bother to question why the call light was on"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Ground crew communicated well. It was easy to check in; boarding was done on time and smoothly."

Cons: "The staff, the food, the entertainment, the cabin being extremely hot, the plane being so incredibly old!!"
Cons: "We boarded around midnight and after supper, I am accustomed to a few hours of the lights turned off for rest. Even though I requested the crew said it was not policy and I should use the yellow mask (which sadly does not block out the light). I think a few hours off dimmed lights would greatly enhance comfort levels."
Pros: "I need a refund what do I do for a credit?"
Cons: "At Addis airport, they announced first that the trip got cancelled and postponed for another 7 hours. Then while lining up to change my ticket, I overheard people saying that the boarding is starting in 30 minutes and we have to rush to the gate. Then the gate number changed 3 times and the boarding time got delayed few times as well. It was a 5 stars chaos that trip!"
Pros: "aircraft was clean and excellent condition, crew friendly"

Pros: "Crew on flight were very nice and responding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they didn't tell us, they kept saying we are about to board the flight in a few minute. eventually it was an hour late. It's not a big delay but the way they acted like they didn't know anything and didn't tell us anything was not OK. Other then that flight was fine. there is no electricity or multimedia and not even a USB charge!"
Pros: "Impressive crew attendants and courteous ."
Cons: "Maybe landing was not too smooth"

Cons: "I used kayak to book the flight and the website provided had the incorrect web address for checking in. When I went directly to the Ethiopian airline website they wouldn't allow me to online check in. I called the agency and I couldn't be connected to anyone. I missed the physical check in by 4 minutes and no one was at the counter to help me reschedule. Really disappointing."
Pros: "Most things were fine"
