Service excellence as always

Pros: "yes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"
Pros: "Same again the crew were fab"
Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"
Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."
Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)"
Cons: "Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad"
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "Spacious single seat Plenty of handy storage Pajamas provided Quiet cabin Great service Lounge wonderful as ever Not woken until last minute"
Cons: "Boarding a bit haphazard"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Okay"
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "Short flight to LCA from DOH. Efficient staff"
Cons: "Old A320 plane, no seat back entertainment, seating looking old Plastic food , very poor. Same thing happened to me last year, still no improvement on this flight sector. Definitely not 5 Star service that Qatar constantly advertises."
Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."
Pros: "The entire experience from booking, to checking-in, to the actual experience on board the flight were so smooth, I thought it was too good to be true. Turbulence usually makes me nervous, but I barely felt it on this flight. Finally and most importantly, on such a long-haul flight, the entertainment options were amazing,"
Cons: "The food and the Duty Free shopping selection could improve a little bit."
Cons: "Chairs very stiff, tight smpace"
Pros: "Everything. The service, the staff, the comfort. It was just a pleasure flying with Qatar"
Pros: "Attentive service"
Cons: "The waiting room in Qatar airport was freezing! So many cold people who were not properly attired as you don't expect arctic conditions at 1am!"
Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and polite, which mitigates the negative stuff on the right to some extent."
Cons: "It's an older plane on this route, which feels comparatively tired; it has the old lean-back seats, which are a bit less comfortable than the newer lean-back, slide-forward ones. The entertainment system is older, so you lose leg-room in aisle seats, and there is less on offer. And because the flight was completely full, you do feel very restricted (not QR's fault, but a function of narrow seats)."
Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."
Pros: "King Hamad Airport is more comfortable and convenient than its Dubai equivalent. Staff were courteous."
Cons: "Dreamliner has very narrow chairs. I was uncomfortable in both directions. The toilets also seem to leak or splash water on the floor. Not a nice airplane."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work sometimes and the touchscreen was difficult to use."
Cons: "Very good experience in economy class. Complimentary meal. No hassle with carryon bags. Would definitely fly again."
Pros: "Every thing great thank you"
Pros: "Was the crew amazing"
Cons: "Land crew need training in managing emergency changes to scheduled flights. Better communication and information as well coordination among various responsible staff members would make such highly charged transitions run smoother. Thank you!"
Pros: "I slept 2.5 hrs and that good"
Cons: "I couldn’t book an additional baggage neither select my seat online, although I tried several times and even contacted directly on the telephone the travel company also several times"

Pros: "i couldn't check In, and i had to purchase a new ticket from airport. i hope i can talk to someone who can help me"
Pros: "The stuff was very friendly."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, beautiful flight and super landing"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Cons: "Boarded 30 min late and only one crew member to check in the entire plane, long delays. The flotation device was dangling from the seat in front of me. Why they have to run commercials for 15 minutes when you sit down when you've already paid to fly?"

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "An okay flight"

Pros: "There were only few passengers in business class so it was a calm flight."
Cons: "Crew very distant and unfriendly. i was not received by any crew member but ordered to sit. A passenger dropped her suitcase on my legs when entering the plain. Chair out of order: back doesn’t lie down. TV didn’t work no films or programs loaded Coffee was extremely cold."

Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."
Pros: "All was really good"
Cons: "Long lines ( about 40 min) to get into transfer zone at the airport. I guess this is not aircompanu fault, but airport."

Pros: "I love the food❤️"

Cons: "Food was terrible. Far from what usually TK is expected to offer on an short international flight"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Movies are not very new, i was asked to clear security again at istanbul gate after going to bathroom but i guess that makes me feel safe even though was inconvenient"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."

Pros: "Overall it was ok. I enjoyed the leg space."
Cons: "I suppose it's just a matter of different manners"
Pros: "kayak was poop for help for me."
Cons: "The flight from BTV to JKF was cancelled day of departure, within a mere 4 hours of take-off. I only received an email.... This, in turn, caused a domino effect for the remainder of my flights and travel plans. I had to PURCHASE brand new tickets and go through a refunding debacle, not through Kayak but another third party whom actually held the tickets. FIASCO is the word! Kayak did not even recognize the cancellation and continued to try and check me in to flights i was not on. Such a headache.. I will not be using this service in the future"
Pros: "The seats have ex space"
Cons: "Counter check in had me take some close off my bags for over weight even I’m allowed to carry two Luggage and. I had one only"
Pros: "First Airline to harass me about the weight on my bag -- small carry on -- had to check kill me on time. The seats have no legroom -- my back is killing me. The internet could not take my money -- so I could not get'out crucial emails -- it seems like the service was more interested in collecting my email addresses and password -- instead to simply directing me to the payment method -- waste of time."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding process was not orderly"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, crew always helpful and glad to please."

Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "The counter in Kuwait was very kindly with my because I have disabled boy"
Cons: "The passport office was very rood with us as we famliy not allowed us to pass and he just allowed the disabled boy with other one only"
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."

Pros: "the plane was nice"
Cons: "the timing was so bad"
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Start from online checking, baggage dropped and boarding flight is a hidden tradition of high class hospitality experience. My first time ever to use Turkish airlines succeeded my expectations. food is great, the onboard seat is comfortable and the crews they're wonderful."
Cons: "Quietness and simplicity looks of high quality of crews presentation is a high class professional experience."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Pros: "Entertainment System, Food"
Cons: "Leg Space, Airplane Space, Staff, 1 Hour Delay for no reason"
Pros: "Everything, it's just straightforward and good, the only thing I don't like it's no direct flights from my local airport, but if I have to go via Istanbul then Turkish airlines it's my preferred carrier."
Cons: "I asked the website to change the destination. The reply came 12 hours before the flight. I couldn't wait so i took another flight and paid for another ticket."
Pros: "I paid for WiFi but the service didn't work perfectly, I wanted to switch device,which you have to logout first. The button didn't work"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"

Pros: "Everything apart from the un-explained wait in the boarding region."
Cons: "We stood at the boarding gate for nearly an hour....otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin temperature, food was great."
Cons: "Not sure whether it was because my flight was short haul, but the plane didn't have in-seat entertainment system (i.e. TV screen for movie watching). The first half of my journey was delayed by 1.5 hours, which meant that I had to rush from the gate I landed in (after the lengthy airport bus ride from the plane to the gate) to my departure gate for my connecting flight, which was already on final call. I found out after my journey that TK is apparently notorious for its flight delays."

As usual, Egyptair was late in departing, so I was late in arriving in Cairo for the connecting flight. It was a short one hour flight, but being 15 minutes late is not good.

Pros: "Didn't like anything"
Cons: "Old aircraft, rude crew, terrible food and by far the worst in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups."
Pros: "I’m sitting at Buisness which I usually do !!!"
Cons: "Wish they renew the cabin knoiwngvthat in even in business but it is so old and food is v avarage also the service is v avarage even they don’t offer you before flight any drinks !!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I appreciate that."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food"
Cons: "Delays in boarding, unorganized, some grumpy staff"
Cons: "Buy it From you by price and checkout by other price more than your price don’t know why are you know that"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."
Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ran out of chicken meal"
Pros: "seats were little comfy handrest where not even. choice of movies were basic. clean not a bad flight. food was decent."
Cons: "the stewards were accommodating and always with a smile. Bathrooms kept clean. check in easy."
Cons: "I overpaid my flight by up to 50 per cent more than my fellow passengers yet they were allowed 2 bags each while I only got 1 . The flight attendants don't offer drinks except with meals . They took for ever to remove the trays after the meals that passengers were trying to take them out by themselves . They don't pass by with big bags to collect any garbage ."
Cons: "Flight attendant not asking what i'd want like everyone else. Because i look different?!"
Pros: "Food was good, crew were pretty nice. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "It took me over 2 hours to board because the counter has never seen a green card extension. I also had a dog that was connecting with me on Emirates, they couldn't figure out the price for the dog at all. We started with $600 and went down to $188 which I was told on the phone. People working at check in should be way more knowledgeable of other things than just regular paper work and not giving travelers attitude because"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Excellent Helpful boarding & on flight crew. New aircraft"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment choices."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Babies crying in nearly every row. No ear plugs provided. Flight attendants not attentive at all. Attitudes for staff left and right. It was a horrible flight. Check in was a headache as well."
Pros: "I did not board the flight to Chicago reservation was wrong (operated by Egypt air ) both airlines denied me I bought another ticket from Lufthansa for$660. I spent two days in hotels. I arrived Chicago Monday noon. I missed two days of work. Please I need refund for my money $837 My name :Mahmoud Helal 15705 brassie court #2s Orland park Il 60462"
Pros: "This was a return flight from Cairo to Washington. I called the Cairo office multiple times to add a pet to my ticket. I couldn't check in online and when I called to ask they said that's because I'm making changes (pet) that's why I can't do it and I should do it at airport.. I'm Cairo airport the check point is as soon as you get thru the main door.. Waited in line for check in only to find that all 4 tickets (me and 3 kids) were cancelled and that we had to go outside again to the reservation office (had to go thru check point again) to reissue the tickets. They didn't even appologize for their mistake and they blamed the travel agency.. Very unprofessional and irresponsible people."
Pros: "It is the first time ever..... I rated anything perfect but this time is an exception ...."
Cons: "Nothing.... ouch it hurts to say this"
Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Accurate time of departure and landing. Excellent and generous service. Cheap price. 62 kg weight allowed. Comfortable business class."
Cons: "Nothing at all, except that the flight did not have wifi because of to the model of the plane. I suggest that Egyptair find some way to have wifi on its all flights."
Pros: "Seat screens and direct flight"
Cons: "The bathrooms were so dirty and were not cleaned during a 12 hour flight."

Meal was not enough

Mismanaged

Etihad keep cancelling their flight just by a email and without rescheduling. It happened to more than four times and every time I had to call them for rescheduling. Really bad reservation system.

Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "The crew was sufficient and polite. Seats are average. Food was extremely limited. Underwhelmed but, frankly, exhausted with the process of trying to get out."
Cons: "Communication of flight departure time was not provided causing us to miss our flight and requiring over 2 hours on a cell call to Bangladesh to book a 24 hr delay which was further confused by computer glitches. Poor customer service at the flight checkin desk in Kathmandu who are, apparently, limited in what they can assist with."
Pros: "La atención excelente. La comida muy buena. El abordaje y la entrega de equipajes a tiempo."
Pros: "Some of the crew members were unfriendly, the economy seats were not very comfortable, there were no snacks on a 14 hour flight only water was freely available"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Spacious flight. Helpful crew. Efficient boarding"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "Plane was clean especially bathroom, chairs were comfy, good entertainment options"
Cons: "It took forever to check in and board. Colombo airport is a bit disorganized. Vegetarian meal was 2 types of pasta no vegetables"
Cons: "Seat was damaged, not conformed and dirty, like it wasn’t cleand after previous flight. Pillows was used before us. Business calss should be nice"
Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."
Pros: "Thanks. It was a pleasure to travel with such kind stewards. Thank you for honoring my request for veg(vegan) meals."
Cons: "food was bad in taste ,they present us just like give to baggers there was no serving in trays .pictures show in add. are all falls we did not get that kind of food in our whole trip . for exps .in dinner they serve 2 small buns filled with 2 leave of spinch 1 bean barito 1small piece of chocolate for desert. for breakfast was lentel,with mashed patatos.when I asked for somthing else.reply was we do not have anything else.so i did not have anything in my 15 houre flight."
Pros: "Staff was polite and curtious"
Pros: "Nice crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, the crew was very nice . (a preference for my first trip of the day though ;)) Everything was very good, except for the screen: on both planes I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. Free champagne! :p"
Cons: "Everything was very good except for the screen: On both planes that I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. The flight from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, no choice of food due to limited and badly anticipated quantities."
Pros: "Upgrade"
Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Our Chicago to Abu Dhabi flight was delayed by over 6 hours Our Abu Dhabi layover was long, because the airline ended up canceling/delaying the connecting flight"
Pros: "I have always loved service of Etihad airways. The food was awesome. The staff was friendly and courteous. Seats were comfortable. Surely enjoyed every bit of it."
Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"
Pros: "US immigeation at abudhabi is helpful and reduces delay at lax"
Cons: "Shorter transit times and seats are not comfortable for the long duration flight. Served limited meals for 16 hrs journey."
Pros: "The service Chairs Entertaining screen Crew Food In my flight from cai to AUH EY 654 4AUG There's cabin crew guy I didn'tremmeber his name ,, he's really awesome and quite and polite and really want appriciate him He toke care of me because I was sick and he made everything for me to. Be comfort Thnx Etihad"
Cons: "They only had vegeterian options for the most part even when the expectation is that they would have at least some meat choices. They ran out of the meat options quickly. The crew was very nice though and arranged for a chicken meal at the end"
Pros: "staff were great"
Cons: "a little bit of a late departure"
Pros: "flight on time easy custom clearance at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "food, perhaps could offer alternative for dinner."
Pros: "All above"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Customer care"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."
Pros: "On time. Plane was clean. Security clearance was good."
Cons: "Food quantity and quality dropped to zero. Absolutely disappointed. I had travelled with etihad before. But this time I feel like not to travel with them again. In a 14 hour flight hardly one meal with 10 hour gap. Imagine if some one traveling with diabetic needs"
Pros: "All crew members were 5 star and so friendly! They checked many times on everyone, coming along with water often."
Cons: "The 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. very old on flight - dress warm!"
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."
Cons: "I dislike how early the entertainment system shuts off"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me. What I love most is their selection of entertainment. I have to say that in the 16-17 hours I flew with them (which I just came home from) I never felt claustrophobic, uncomfortable, or bored. I was in the middle seat. I love their flight progress and flight time. Their timing was very accurate. In fact, both flights landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "I didn't really dislike anything on the return trip. It was everything I expected and more"
Pros: "Seats where just roomy enough,let's face it,you can always use more room right. Staff was very friendly and attentive . I absolutely loved flying Etihad !"
Cons: "I would still like a roomier seat,again though, I think anybody would . I probably should have perchased first class,hmmm, should the whole plane be that comfortable?And not too much more cost . I say that would be wonderful !"
Cons: "They served me wrong food, I ordered veg but when I opened it was non veg lol"
Cons: "Last two flights with Virgin Australia (not Etihad) were very late. Va decided to cancel my booking on my international connection even though I could make it. VA DID ALL THEY COUKD TO MAKE SURE I MISSED MY CONNECTION."
Pros: "Crew are usually lovely and helpful with even the most difficult passengers."
Cons: "The food quality is sub par and the entertainment is not adequate compared to other Gulf airlines. I enjoy traveling and did not enjoy the quality of food and actually ran out of movies to watch on a 14 hr flight! I think their focus is on Business and First class. I like this airline so wish it wasn't so."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area. The crew repeatedly asked them to sit and they would sometimes ignore then outright and other times sit for a short while only to get up once again. For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was nice, there was enough leg room to where it wasn't uncomfortable for me."
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: "Everything specialy the crew. But food list was poor. entirtainment is excellent. Seats are cogested . Boarding was good."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I buy a ticket through etihad website, I expect etihad service, even if it was operated by other airline. Air Serbia managed to loose my luggage on a direct flight between AD and Belgrade, and the plane was very old, without entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing special old Aircraft"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than a hour & hand luggage asked us to handover at the time of boarding , very sad"
Pros: "I got sick, and I felt faint and and nauseous. When I told a member of the crew, he took me back to the galley and let me lie with oxygen until I felt better. The rest of the crew continued to check on me the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Ample room and privacy provided by the tastefully done seating pod arrangement"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Courtesy of employees"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
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!"
Pros: "nothing much"
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 and food. enjoyed the seat massages"
Cons: "Toilets in business class were smelly. Not nice when you are washing your teeth. It is difficult to lean over the bowl and wash teeth. Cups are not provided to assist with washing teeth. Paper towels ran out in the toilets."
Pros: "Bad bording"
Cons: "Bad food"
