Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."

Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "After having flown numerous airlines to Asian countries over the years, we are extremely happy to have found EVA Airlines. After flying EVA the last 5 round trips we are happy to say they are the #1 airline of choice. Actually, we will fly no other than EVA as they have the cleanest planes and the best of service from the check-in counter, thru the security and flight staff, all are the best and most devoted to assist you in any way needed along your trip. Professionalism and cleanliness matched only by their devotion to be the best"

Pros: "Plus points: Boarding slightly late but OK once it got going. They seemed to have a reasonable drinks selection on board. Cute safety videos."
Cons: "Once boarded some people move around and "re-allocate" their seat. Some recline seats during the meal service and staff are reluctant to tell them off depending on their age. Food unimaginative. A321 narrow-body - only one movie on main screen (inaudible but with Chinese-only subtitles) and no seat-back TV on a 3-hour flight. Overall not so good but another flight I took, widebody (A330) service, has seat-back TV and so is more tolerable."
Pros: "I like the staff."

Cons: "My tv was broken, so the charger didn't work. For a 14 hour that was awful."

Cons: "Other than taking a flight that was way too long for my legs nothing. It's a great airline."
Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"

Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"
Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."
Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"
Pros: "Great new airport. Friendly staff. Traveled with them before and will again. Great rate and 2 bags!"

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."

Cons: "The airport was attacked by a terrorist and hour after I left to Skopje. I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup.

Cons: "Since we boarded so early and the process was long, I was lulled into a false happiness that I had a row to myself that ended up being filled at the last second before the doors closed."
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "There was not enough non veg food onboard and no choices. Everyone was served vegetarian towards the end. They served lunch in the beginning of the flight and then I was literally starving after 5 or 6 hours until a fellow passenger told me they had some snacks at the back. There was no communication on that."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Pros: "Every thing is good inspite of food"
Cons: "Cheep quality of food"
Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Only thing decent was the boarding."
Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Full flight with small seats with little leg room, uncomfortable on a long flight and, I am very petite! Old, dated movies Mediocre food"
Pros: "Free movies and polite hostesses and service"
Cons: "Free internet"
Pros: "1) the flight was not full which was a big plus 2) the universal charging at the seat, I didn't need a converter."
Cons: "1) The sinks in 4 bathrooms were broken. People were still using the bathrooms although there was no sink. So people were not washing their hands which is unsanitary. 2) the food was not very good, nor the timing of it. Also sandwiches in plastic wrapping were distributed during sleeping hours and that was very disruptive. 3) the plane was older. 4) the flight was very expensive so I expected 5 star features and comfort, but it was only a 3 star for me."
Pros: "On time, entertainment, friendly crew"

Cons: "When there is a connecting flight from Domestic to international, Domestic is letting us in without any restrictions on Cabin luggage but in middle of journey in Chicago they have really troubled all the passengers, mainly they haven't checked the baggage's untill we have boarded the flight though everyone is there before 2 hrs of the and i personally asked they if my bags needs any new tags but just before they pulled everyone from the line and screwed us. which is really bad."
Cons: "They didn't allow carry on bag even it's 2 CM higher. Good was very poor, check in was nasty and too much long waiting lines even after web check in. Customer responsive ness was worst part"
Pros: "Timings & Fare"
Cons: "Return flight from Abu Dhabi to New Delhi wasn't comfortable due to higher temperature"
Pros: "Fast and on time"
Cons: "My butt hurts"
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: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"
Pros: "Actually there was nothing to like except for the ground crew and the flight took off on time"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The seats are uncomfortable compared to qatar airways, lufthansa, kuwait airways. The food was amazingly horrible. The entertainment device was out of date."
Pros: "Seating and inside flight everything was good"
Cons: "My luggage was tested with 2 machines and it was shown under 23 kgs but as i went on airport it showed me 27 kgs. I couldn't return anything and i had to pay over wieght fees. It was a shock for me."
Pros: "All seats had power outlets"
Cons: "Plane was older than expected. Food/service was nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Food, In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Etihad has the most ridiculous carry on baggage policy. They have this cage within which your carry on should fit in. If it does not then you have to pay $320 to check in the bag which I was forced to pay. Never seen any airline doing such a shitty thing and overcharging. Also, I think they turned the AC off during the flight and I was fanning myself for the entire 14 hour duration of the trip. WTF??"
Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."
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 was assigned a middle seat next to a obese person. It was very unpleasant 13 hours, and the airlines could have moved one of us."
Cons: "It was delayed more than 7 hrs. We had early morning flight . They disnot allow us to get out to get food. They just sreve cice water. I had to take medicine with food."
Cons: "Flight attendant could have cared less about being there. lol"
Pros: "The plane was specious but the crew needs to improve their service ."
Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."
Pros: "I was pained to see so many passengers hassled at checking time by the crew. When carry luggage with same dimensions was allowed on onward journey how can it be oversized on the return journey? I was asked to refer the website for dimensions and tod that Ethihad does not use standard carry on baggage size. Some passengers were forced to buy new carry on luggage at the airport. It is pathetic service in my opinion because the airline put so many elderly passengers with no knowledge of English to a lot of heardship."
Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"
Pros: "Very professional but efficient."
Pros: "Loved the cabin crew, they were friendly, helpful and attentive despite a very long journey from Chicago to Islamabad."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was is banged up that there is a large dent and the handle no longer closes...unfortunately one of the best peices of luggage. Limited staff for such a filled flight, despite their best efforts service suffered. Need a seperate section for families with children. Face mask might be offered to passangers who coughed much of the journey causing concern about sharing germs in air that is already still. Food and toilet areas were smelly towards end of flight."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Pros: "Friendly staff, legroom was OK, American's gates at ORD were fairly clean."
Cons: "Great big stain on the carpet around the end of the gates looked pretty bad."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"
Cons: "Gate manager "Nadia" very rude and unprofessional in dealing with boarding passengers."
