Flight attendants were very rude. Food wasn’t that great.
Food quality was okay not so great and other things were very good.
Not at all happy with this trip Worst experience faced
Lahore to Doha was great but Doha to JFK using American Airlines was horrendous
Total flight experience was amazing
Very lethargic, lazy, rude process to check-in and board the plane. The staff is not well trained or has no care for customer service or any decency at all. First time flying Qatar airways after hearing so many good things about the airline, however the experience was awful!
Very old plane (15 years old).. And they lost my luggage!
Boarding in Lahore is slow
Pros: "Crew were so much helpful, really appreciate, my wife got sick, they have been amazing"

Cons: "Food is good."
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."

Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive and very helpful"

Cons: "We requested the wheelchair but it wasn’t provided"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."

Cons: "Cleanliness of cabin. Aminity kit is outrageous."

Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "5 star service"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable entertainment was nice food was excellent"
Pros: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"
Pros: "Always fun flying with them."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Cons: "Out dated inflight entertainment system"
Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."
Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Pros: "Service was on point. The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "They make you close all the windows and outside lights after each meal. Want you to sleep most of the time so that you may not get up and stroll around or ask the crew any extra drinks, ice creams etc."
Cons: "I had cancelled my flight with qatar airways due to the current political problems. My ticket was booked through the agent airfare.com. They have handled the issue terribly. To start with. They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Poor management didn't provide a hotel for layovers more than 12 hrs"
Cons: "Very poor job . I had bad experiences."

Cons: "little delay in departure"
Pros: "Good Timing"
Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "the last leg, Istanbul to DC was completely full. i was seating at the back (33K). after the meal, i wanted to recline and the man behind me started yelling as he has water on his table. i apologized and asked if i can recline the seat and he yelled again and said i cannot recline my seat. i talked to the flight attendant and she wanted to move me to a middle seat. i declined and eventually the man said i can recline my seat. but i mean, seriously, i got yelled at for trying to recline my seat and got no apologies from anyone."
Pros: "The seats have more room. The food is good. The in-flight entertainment is great. The cabin crew is wonderful."

Cons: "Seats could be little wider"
Pros: "Screens at each seat"
Cons: "Food was terrible, the WiFi wouldn’t work even at $15"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and service was awesome"
Cons: "Business class seats are not very comfortable like Qatar or Emirates."
Pros: "The business lounge in Istanbul, Turkey was 2 floors, full of food, drinks, place to sleep, shower and sleep. The staff was superpeb."
Cons: "A man in the business lounge took my home address and cell number and told me that I would get a complimentary ride home. But when I arrived at the Business counter at the Dulles International Airport, they informed that no such program is in place."
Pros: "As always Turkish Airlines has exceptional service"
Pros: "Travel on THY within Turkey and between countries. Service excellent, food is great, amenities abound. Always travel THY when I can."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew."

Cons: "See volume issue from earlier."
Pros: "The crew was kind and the food was good, the birding process was quick and easy."
Cons: "I had to ask 5 times in 15 min. for a blanket before anyone paied me attention. It takes way too long to have your food tray picked up after meals are served. This is important for me as I travel with a small child."
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent, price was good."
Cons: "Long layover was hard on me. No place to sleep while stuck all night at the airport."
Pros: "I thought the flight attendants were excellent!! They were the best crews since the beginning of our journey. I wish I had their names. They were one young lady and a tall man. Thank you very very much!!"
Cons: "I feel the seats are too narrow and space too tight. Other than that, all good!"
Pros: "Every thing was great needed ice water was all thanks"
Cons: "Great thanks"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew were all great"
Cons: "Very cold in cabin"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, and crew were great!"
Pros: "Friendly Cabin crew Entertainment was above average."
Cons: "First of all I have tons of complaints regarding the airport at Istanbul. They have a poorly managed airport and it was so crowded. The cafeteria and places to eat around in the airport were horrendously expensive and they didn't have services like wifi(had to buy it for $8 an hour and it sucked) and drinking water. As per Turkish airlines, the staff in the airport were poorly equipped to deal with emergency situations such as snow. I was flying during the snowstorm and wasn't expecting my journey to be easy. But they should have increased their resources to help people out in such cases.Their help desk was crowded with almost 500+ of people all the time and they only had 2 people to answer their queries. Also, the staff couldn't understand English properly and seemed irritated when I was trying to explain things in English. I had to stand an hour on a line to get my temporary visa issued only to be referred to another line (yes! i waited for an hour to get to the desk and was told to go and sit in another effing line). It was also because most of the signs/boards in the area were written in Turkish only and I didn't know what they were saying. I had to pay for my own hotel during my transit because the line for the hotels was almost two miles long. And when I arrived at my destination, both my luggage went missing. The crew on board were nice and helping people. I do not blame my bad travel experience entirely on Turkish airlines however, the airport and airlines both are not prepared to deal with situations that are unexpected. I also realize the snow storm was the main factor behind everything however any airlines that boasts itself to be a top class international airlines should have means and resources to manage(at least try) their passengers and airport during any situation. No matter what I am never flying with Turkish airlines again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely, they worked smoothly and did their best to manage an unpleasant situation. The facilities are also excellent, and as always, the fresh flowers and hand lotion and such in the toilets was a nice touch."
Cons: "The food was not up to standard this flight, mostly passable, but our pasta inexplicably tasted chlorinated, as if the noodles had ben boiled in pool water. It's a mild complaint, though. Plane food isn't always sterling. The true problem, unfortunately, was in the form of other passengers. Despite having an excess of available space to stretch out, our seats were surrounded by utterly out-of-control children. Crying babies is understandable, it can't be helped, but if your children are running up and down the aisles [including during the landing], sitting on other passengers [myself in particular], and lying down in the aisle to sleep [and the flight attendant had to ask multiple people whose child that one was because no one wanted to own up, apparently] they have no business being on a plane. I don't even care about the annoyance at this point, their behaviour was inherently unsafe and the parents just didn't care."
Pros: "Even in economy, TK serves two full meals, with beer/wine as beverage options. They also give an overnight bag with slippers and other helpful goodies"
Cons: "The level of service by the cabin crew was really disappointing. One of the flight attendants asked me to switch seats with the woman seated next to me (although I had pre-selected my seat). I obliged, although I think that the cabin crew and/or gate agents should have given more thought to giving her a better seat assignment, like a bulkhead seat. This woman was uncommonly large with mobility problems, so it was difficult for me to get up when I wanted to. The entertainment system malfunctioned about an hour into the flight, and I had to flag down a cabin crew member on 3 separate occasions to ask them to look into it. No one ever bothered to follow up or attempt to resolve the problem. To make matters worse, the entertainment system is connected to the entire electrical system, so I couldn't use the "call cabin crew" button, or the overhead light - meaning I was stuck in the dark for HOURS. Only after I demanded to be given another seat did anyone do anything, and with zero apologies."
Cons: "The food was no good. The airplane was so hot sometimes I couldn't breathe"
Pros: "Food is always good."
Cons: "They let everyone board at the same time, REALLY??? Eco seats were tiny for a 12 hour flight, miserably uncomfortable."
Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Bussness class."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a little."
Pros: "Food was much better than a number of airlines."
Cons: "bathrooms got messy."
Pros: "outstanding flight assistances, excellent food."
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "Very spacious, lots of room, on time. A nice experience overall."
Cons: "Snacks weren't free. No entertainment, but to be expected on domestic flight."
Pros: "Food was excellent,lemonade was great"
Pros: "Crew was fine; food fine."
Cons: "These were probably the most uncomfortable seats I've ever flown in. I'm only 6 ft 1 inch, so I'm not unusual. I could not sit with my knees facing front; I had to splay them out. The tray table would not come all the way down flat before it hit my knees. If there were a lower rating than poor, the seats would have won it; Movies were among the worst ever. where do you get them?"
Pros: "the crew, meal, flight, every thing was excellent"
Cons: "It was nothing about the flight itself but the about the Istanbul terminal. If Turkish airlines wants more people to travel through Turkey should improve the following: 1- Should make free Wifi available to every one. 2- Should keep the bathrooms clean at the terminals."
Pros: "Food / service / timeliness"
Pros: "Loved all around."
Cons: "I loved it."
Cons: "they have no good service at all, no smile face at all. they treat customers like as if we are traveling for free. checking counter are all look like they have bad day, they are in a bad mood."
Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."
Pros: "Very helpful staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "All of the above , on this flight. it was just as expected and better. Thank you. Thought you might want to know my opinion of our flight from Washington to Istanbul on Jan.27.2016, it was the worst flight on any airline we had before. The crew was unprofessional at best, no one knew his or hers duty. the most was the cook who took the orders for food and 2 hours later came to apologize that he did not have the food or that the food was ruined. It was like a joke all along the flight. I hope the at crew do not work for your company anymore."
With my wife being disabled the assistance and crew staff were very helpful getting us on and off the plane. My previous experience of virgin although some years ago was a wider choice of meals and food more to my taste.
This airplane had no air conditioning while boarding and took way too long to cool us down after boarding : the staff was even wearing neck fans while assisting others. There was not enough food and staff were frustrated under these circumstances
Everything was great. Boarding was quick and easy. The food excellent.
Didn’t enjoy this flight at all, we were separated from our kids even though there were empty seats next to them. The quality of the food was terrible, dry, tasteless and just awful. The entertainment system didn’t work and kept freezing, i had to ask 5 different members of the crew to reset it. The crew looked dis-interested in their work and didn’t want to be there, this is the first time I flown with Delta, and I really regret taking this flight, I will definitely not be booking with them again.
Mass produced airline food is tough to get right but maybe food that doesn’t require as much cutting so you don’t elbow your neighbors ie spring rolls. Ear buds were hard to hear through. But overall Flight staff was professional, lavatories were clean, boarding was orderly, flight on time.
Heathrow Airport refused to let us through security on time and we were not permitted to board the flight.
Not much elbow room. Food OK but not as good as Delta.
Flight crew was excellent. Seating in the economy class was, well, economy.
Delta were magnificent. All really helpful and a joy to travel with. Food was very nice and they kept me topped up wthe water, cold drinks etc. Heathrow was very busy that time of day and despite arriving early I needed all the extra time to queue to check in luggage and then the waiting to get through security was very long and only just got to the gate as it was closing. You need to aim to be in Heathrow 3 hours before take off, not two.
Crew could be more attentive
Crew is amazing food was great and movies are top notch
Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Very short flight (43 minutes) No food, entertainment or beverage service. Staff did not check young children were strapped in prior to take off resulting in a two year old standing on dads lap throughout take off, flight and landing."
Cons: "Lack of importance shown to safety of young children."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws"
Cons: "The flight change the gate number immediately so I missed my flight"
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to technical problems! Hope to be on another flight today as I missed my connecting flights too!!"
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options, out stewardess was fantastic."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Cons: "One toilet not working"
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"
Pros: "great food and service!"
Cons: "It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Pros: "Very professional crew throughout."
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."
Cons: "Why are there no plug-ins?! That was very disappointing..."
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Pros: "The Virgin Atlantic Club was nice. The special security line was a bonus."
Cons: "Selection of onboard movies not very good. The crew was not so friendly. Menu could be more varied. The A340 configuration is not so good for Business class. Staring at other people across the aisle is not so nice."
Pros: "Crew were responsive. 787 has more legroom & better recliner, window shading was amazing"
Cons: "Vegetarian food quality needs improvement"
Pros: "Mango juice was good. Food was good. Crew was friendly and fast."
Cons: "More leg room please. Better entertainment. More reclining of seats required. Softer seats."
Cons: "14 hours connection time and they don't offer hotel/meal accommodation that airlines like Qatar Airways do. I inquired about the hotel within the airport and it costs $300 for 8 hours. Ridiculous. There is no place to sleep properly in the airport, I saw people laying down on the floor."
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"
Cons: "My Baggiage is extremely damaged which is so disgusting and there is no way to report it"
Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."
Cons: "Check in counter was overcrowded and slow moving"
Pros: "Good price. Long flights were not at all crowded. US preclearance in Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Entertainment. Food was so-so."
Pros: "The food is not standard airline food and deliciously reflects the Middle East."
Cons: "No body from airline staff was at Lahore Airport to facilitate passengers.Lot of time wasted.One staff member was attending 2 rows of passengers in slow operational speed."
Pros: "The air hostess was very helpful .I had a problem with my seat and she arranged for a seat where I was and remained comfortable throughout my flight to Washington. Love"
Cons: "The food. I had asked for a Hindu meal. It seemed I got a diabetic meal which was devoid of taste. It should have been normal. I think Etihad misunderstood Hindu meal with Jain food,where they don't use spices,onions,garlic etc."
Pros: "Food was great ."
Cons: "My chair was not comfortable."
Cons: "No food and crew was so rude and Lahore airport crew not only rude also nasty"
Pros: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."
Cons: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "So i was with ticketing requesting for seating, and she said run run your flight is leaving , i did not get proper seat and i ran to find out it was NYC flight and not DC. I asked more than one Eithihqd personeel and they did not know the difference bewtween Nyac flight and DC flight . Then came back to request for seating and they again made believe my security will be declines if i waste timein requesting seating. Got a flight between 2 males for a 15 hour flight and a run across the airport with a heart problem . I will never fly Eithihqd and also will not recommend to anyone"
Pros: "Friendly and professional. Always with a smile."
Pros: "Customer service very good"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The behavior of crowd and no leg space"
Pros: "Connections on Etihad. Abu Dhabi airport. Service and hospitality. On time flights and easy check in. US immigration in Abu Dhabi was a breeze."
Cons: "Food was terrible and insufficient."
Pros: "Staff was great...Food was good...Upgraded to first class !!!!!"
Cons: "Crew was not as attentive as Emirates Airlines."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Horrible food and beverage service as mentioned above"
Cons: "Was not allowed to board flight, had to purchase a second d ticket, told no seats available until Sept 17 which was a lie, after an additional charge of $750.10. Could not reach customer service. Ended up buying a ticket with another airline. Would like some reimbursement in this."
Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"
Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"
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: "Awesome service, smooth flight , great staff. Very spacious"
Cons: "My luggage got damaged, but it's being taken care of."
Cons: "They should include a separate meal that is more to the liking for kids e.g kids meal instead all they offer is the same meal as adults to the kids as well"
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Pros: "Timing was good, crew was friendly, flight was delayed but made up most of it on the way. Food wasn't anything extraordinary but still worlds better than American carriers."
Cons: "Soo cramped on the Dreamliner. Would not recommend for a short flight let alone the 15 hour torture chamber I was stuck on."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."
Cons: "Plane was not maintained at a comfortable temperature. It was just downright hot! But that was our experience with all our Etihad flights. Planes are not maintained at comfortable temperatures. Food was awful - boiled chicken taste While handing out sandwiches and drinks stewardess just gave my husband whatever I asked for without checking with him. Many times he was overlooked by the stewardesses on either side as he was in a middle seat. I did not see a single onboard crew crack a smile, robotic service. Not impressed with my first Etihad experience."
Cons: "There was a chicken sandwich offered in the middle of the flight that is by far the worst airplane food I've ever had"
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."
Cons: "I requested gluten free meals ahead of time, but the request was not fulfilled, making meals tough. The crew were very kind though and worked to make the best out of the situation."
Pros: "Very comfartable"
Cons: "Internet acess is to expensive"
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."
Cons: "Myself and my wife were assigned seats away from each other. Business class seating was not as good as in some other airlines that I have travelled. If husband and wife and family are travelling together on a long flight it should be possible to seat them close to each other"
Cons: "No dedicated line for First @ TSA Pre-Clearance at Abu Dhabi. This means you have to leave the lounge hours earlier than otherwise incase there is a massive line @ TSA."
Cons: "Abu-Dhabi was very crowded with passengers and it took very long (actually I was amongst last few passengers who boarded my connection). Depending on time of year, etc the time to connection need to be increased."
Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."
Pros: "The plane was spacious with great features. The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Food was ok, but could be improved in variety."
Cons: "Boarding process, slow and long - I have seen other airlines do it much faster. Crew were friendly, but lots of confusion among crew members. Entertainment was horrible - need new and latest movies. The latest movies available were months old. This makes the flight time feel a lot longer than it is."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Food is not great. Coffee and tea service is bad. Coffee is very cold. They are rVery picky about cabin luggage. If if .000001 lbs are more they want us to take small item for example a pen from the bag. Due to this itself I do not want travel in future.ude if u ask something."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food from Bangalore - Abudhabi was worst...Also I pre selected Veg meals almost 4-5 months ahead of my trip,however the crew said he can't guarantee serving it..and the quality was poor."
Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "Delay leaving Heathrow because of cargo loading and equipment blocking our pushback. Better coordination of ground activities is needed."
Pros: "the food was surprisingly good; crew very helpful after I was asked to switch seats due to screen malfunction, they helped find space to move my carry-on further front as well and assisted in getting it back after landing"
Pros: "I like everything."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. Staff was courteous, plane was great, food on the flight was exceptional. Compared to Icelandair, this was a dream!"
Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Hot atmosphere inside the aircraft during flight"
Pros: "excellent friendly crew"
Cons: "5 hours late"
Pros: "Got a baby cot, offered wine for dinner and arrived 20 mins earlier than scheduled"
Pros: "again the cabin crew were excellent and professional"
Pros: "The Heathrow staff was attentive to our needs regarding a passenger with special needs. The flight attendant crew was also totally on point throughout the flight. As we left the plane, one of the flight attendants, Simone, made a very special effort to assist us and for that I am grateful. The wheel chair attendant at Washington Dulles was also a real trooper who remained with us until all luggage was retrieved and I made my way to the Parking Garage to retrieve my car. I am totally impressed with the service and care that everyone associated with British Airways provided to make this transport effortless."
Pros: "I liked that they had a veggie option for food for dinner service."
Cons: "I didn't like the British Airways terminal at Heathrow - everything was automated. There was no human interaction and the ground staff was scarce therefore it was difficult to ask any questions."
Pros: "The food was decent for coach, and wine is still included at no charge on trans-Atlantic flights. There were multiple recent movies available on the entertainment system, although the picture and sound quality was lacking."
Cons: "Since it was a wide body, there were no overhead vents. And for some reason they chose to heat the cabin to what felt like at least 78 Fahrenheit, in March. Also, the headphone jack was simply missing in one of our seats (rendering the entertainment system useless) and one of the seats in front of us was in permanent recline, cutting in to the already scant leg room."
Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
Pros: "Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move"
Pros: "the pre-boarding for families with kids was nice, the staff were helpful during the flight"
Cons: "The flight home to DC was fine. The flight going to London from DCA was horrible.The deserts on the kids meals had mold on them. My daughter was vomiting as a result of the food. It ate into our trip which was hard for us as we were visiting my grandmother who is not well. We contacted the airline about it and their proposed compensation was not what we were expecting. Honestly we plan to make an annual trip but based on our experiences with this trip maybe we'll choose a different airline."
Pros: "Service and Care with sense of humor! I have sat in both business and economy, and while I prefer the room in business, I still feel the service is just as wonderful in economy. I got all I asked for including bubbly in economy! I like to stay awake on the way back to the US and asked for two coffee's and a bubbly, a ginger and an OJ just before dinner & refills on cafe. Of course I thought I was pushing it to ask for it all at once, but they laughed, proceeded to fill my wishes and with a good sense of humor asked If I wanted anything else! I actually got everything I asked for! Super!"
Cons: "I pre bought my seat and chose an aisle. The plane was changed and I ended up in a window seat within the same row I had chosen on the other plane lay out. I prefer the aisle as I like to get up a lot and hate to annoy others who may prefer not to get up every time I do. I was lucky that the flight had plenty of empty seats and was able to move to an aisle after asking. What happens on a full flight? I would have been really upset. What is the point of pre-booking one' s seat? If the plane is changed, BA ought to take care to make sure a pre-booked seat gets a window/aisle near the row they chose. I suspect that is more important than the row on a long flight."
Pros: "Dinner, friendly crew"
Cons: "Quality of entertainment"
Pros: "The crew looked after us really well."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the crew, the water supply on the aircraft was contaminated and there were no hot drinks."
Pros: "Did not watch entertainment. Tried to nap."
Cons: "Blankets felt very worn and crusty."
Pros: "The crew & procedures were excellent. Perfect timing. I sleep or meditate most of the flight--that's why I rated entertainment a N/A. I know movies, etc. are available; I just don't avail myself of them."
Cons: "The vegan meal was mediocre--a "fresh fruit" platter would be an ideal option."
Cons: "I could not chose the seats ahead of time, for reasons that I still don't know, and I wound up being seated several rows away from my young son."
Pros: "Flight staff were very polite and efficient. My seat (economy) was made to be more comfortable with a pillow, a blanket, and earbuds for in-flight entertainment. Enjoyed that I could watch movies and TV for free."
Cons: "The food smelled great but neither in-flight meal accommodated allergens- would like to see a gluten free choice. In-flight entertainment included games, on their touch screens, on the head rests. Whoever thought that was a good idea clearly did not test out the product. I’d rather spend a long flight without my rear-seated neighbor jabbing my headrest."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Poor food options"
Pros: "The flight was nice, on a large aircraft with lots of entertainment options, high ceilings, and decent food."
Cons: "Due to delays on our previous flight in the two-leg journey, we missed the connection and had to be rebooked, stay overnight in London, and come home a day later than planned."
Pros: "Despite a four hour delay the staff was in good spirits and generally pleasant. The entertainment selections were also comprehensive."
Cons: "The food choices were very limited (chicken curry or pasta alfredo) neither of which were dairy free."
Pros: "The plane, that is. Seats are small in economy. The plane was hot. And we spent an hour on the runway with no air for a mechanical issue. At least the service was nice."
Cons: "Time on runway. Seats uncomfortable. Entertainment is old and small screens - hard to see."
Pros: "The food was very good, and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I'm a small person, and I found the seats too narrow and there was so little leg room."
Cons: "Delayed and poor food"
Pros: "Back seat entertainment and pleasant staff."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "The airline boarded a little late, but that's typical in Europe. They gave lots of food for the in-flight meal. Several people didn't have their screens work, so they rebooted the system, and then it worked fine. The crew constantly came through with beverages."
Pros: "friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "seats weren't particularly comfortable, the side bolsters on the economy seats are a little too aggressively tall"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had issues about an hour and a half into the 8 hour flight. The crew reset individual seats with no improvement. They made any announcement asking people to stop hitting the call button about it because they were aware of the problem and said that if there was no improvement they would reset the entire plane's entertainment system which they never did. Therefore, we did not have any functioning entertainment for the remaining 6.5 hours of the flight."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hr delayed, seats were uncomfortable, flight was oversold and could not seat next to spouse even though we booked well in advance."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair and never got one either way. Slowly but I walked it! Thank god I was not completely disabled."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."
Pros: "The flight was fine..."
Cons: "But Dulles Airport needs to control the level of toxicity experienced when certain entitled passengers think they have to pack the tarmac shuttle under NO PARTICULAR AUTHORITY, shouting "MOVE BACK [YOU] PEOPLE" into the closest ear. There should be someone other than the driver on those shuttles monitoring people, since they obviously need a babysitter."
Cons: "Because of BA problems on online checking I couldn't get seats reserved as soon as online checkin opened. No one could helped me by phone either. I had to do it at the airport. By then, obviously, only the worst seats were available. Do they care? Obviously no. I'm the one stuck in the worst seats for 8:30h. And that happened both ways in the trip. All they would say is "I'm sorry, I can't help you at this time". As that would improve my flying experience. If the problem was on their side, they should definitely accomodate me."
Pros: "Sense of Urgency of Keeping Flights on Time"
Cons: "London Security :("
Pros: "It was great to be upgraded!"
Pros: "My flight connection to Heathrow from Milan was 2 hours late. The staff at British Airways met me at the gate and escorted me to my connecting flight which was boarding at the time. I would not have made the connection if I had not had expess connection service"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Ancient plane. Terrible seats. No space or padding. Horrid entertainment system from 15 yrs ago, dysfunctional. Definitely one of my worse experiences flying back and I do this leg 10-15 per year. Boarding was oddly disorganized for a BA flight."
Pros: "Professionalism of staff"
Cons: "Boarding system"
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Cons: "No new movies!~"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The seat rows are too close together. When the woman in front of me reclined her seat she was basically in my lap- not how I wanted to spend 7 hours. I finally had to put my knees against her seat to keep her from reclining. It took a lot of effort to cross/uncross my legs in the limited space. I'm only 5'4" 118lbs - I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me feels when they have to fly in the same situation."
Cons: "Not loaded by rows, not organized."
