Cons: "Flight was a little long!"

Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Cons: "Great service."

Pros: "Food and leg room"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and aircraft was clean and seats comfortable!"
Cons: "I would like to have more air fresheners during the flight as there are some people who eat special food and it smells so bad in aircraft"

Pros: "Bad service"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"

Pros: "Everything!!!"

Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."

Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."

Pros: "The facilitated transfer in Doha within twenty minutes"
Cons: "The repetition of vegetarian food menu"

Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"

Pros: "Service basically. For such a long haul flight they did everything they could to make it comfortable."
Cons: "They could have checked the bathrooms more often as trash bins were very full."

Pros: "Excellent overall"
Cons: "LAX boarding was chaotic I think they should announce First people with disabilities Then Business class After that board Economy class from last rows"

Cons: "Nicmze clean aircraft with goods legal room in economy"

Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."

Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."

Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"

Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."

Pros: "Check-in counter and gate staff were really accommodating and professional."
Cons: "Cabin crew lacked training. They skipped rows, didn’t apologize, forgot to bring things when requested and had to be reminded again & lacked common courtesy. One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "The plan was very hot and made the experience less than desirable."

Pros: "Arrival and departure is on time treatment is excellent very courteous For all category of passenger"
Cons: "South Indian food may. Made available"

Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."

Pros: "First time I got ice cream on a plane"
Cons: "Low calorie meals were horrible."

Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"

Cons: "15 hours flight no WiFi...!!!!!! Last minute flight time change was sent via email..!!!! Almost 1 hour delay after boarding..!!!"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great service and food"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"

Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"

Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"

Cons: "Food quality was not as good as on a Turkish Airlines business class flight we took a few years ago"

Pros: "The flight crew was amazing- very pleasant and hospitable. There was great entertainment available which made the flight go quickly. The food was good. We did not realize we had to select vegetarian ahead of time, but having cheese sandwiches available made that easier. The small bag of toiletries that we were given was a very nice surprise."
Cons: "Carrying luggage down stairs after the flight was difficult but the flight team was helpful."

Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"

Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."

Pros: "The crew were generally hospitable and courteous though not well informed. The entertainment choices were varied and enough. The meals were warm. Turbulence was well managed by crew and pilot. The toilets were clean."
Cons: "Flight was late, leaving less time to board connecting flight. The blanket was too small. The food and wine were below standards. The leg rests were absent and not enough room to spread legs. The basket in front too narrow and tight to put in anything. The charging unit for computer/mobile did not function. No clear instructions or help to board next connecting flight either through system or crew."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Increase entertainment options but it was still great just need more latest music"

Pros: "I love the food and service, thank you Turkish airlines, you are the best in the world"

Cons: "Movies varaiety"

Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.

Pros: "The service was good. And the staff were friendly."

Pros: "2 & 1 carry On Luggages, NO PROBLEM even though my Luggage s were 2 + lbs extra Heavy. I like the Smiling Crew, food, comfort when taking off and especially Landing in Istanbul. I did NOT feel anything at ALL. The Crew excepted and kept my suit in a safe place, hanged till I reached Istanbul Airport."
Cons: "Close to an hour delay in Los Angeles."

Pros: "Their water was fine."
Cons: "They purposefully do not update their delays, which are frequent and widespread. They do this so their percentage on time looks better. Both my flights were over an hour delayed but Turkish Airline refused to update the status of the flight. They both came up as “on time”. My driver at my destination therefore waited an additional hour for me and I was charged 90 additional euros. The flight said it was on time online and at the gate it also read “on time.”"

Pros: "there are a lot of movie"
Cons: "children!!"

Pros: "Everything was exellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Lost my baggage and didn’t get any clear answer about it"

Pros: "Film selection, boarding process, amenities bag"
Cons: "Dessert very boring. Legspace seemed smaller than last experience on TK"

Pros: "мне нравится все кроме того что заранее до выхода в Стамбул неизвестен номер gate для полёта в в Одессу. В результате большая нервозность и много времени тратится на поиск этого номера, а потом -- бег чтобы успеть достигнуть место посадки вовремя."

Pros: "Not only was the aircraft antique and sporting old seats, but the crew also upgraded two families with infants to the business class where the screamed their hearts out to the obvious displeasure of the paying customers. A true Turkish delight... Unlikely to fly them again."
Cons: "Good food and alcohol selection"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The lateness of flights"

Pros: "Food, manner, lounge in Istanbul"
Cons: "slight delay on the outgoing leg"

Pros: "All is good except the airport the service at Istanbul airport are so bad plus the restrooms are so smiling and duty"

Pros: "Entertainment was Okay, and that was the best of it."
Cons: "Customer service gave us false information about delays, almost missed our flight. The check-in agent had to call for manager. And the manager told us if we didn't check-in online, they wouldn't have let us board our flight. The seats were cramped, the food is way worse than it was before. I doubt that we will fly with Turkish Airlines ever again."

Pros: "Overall enjoyable"
Cons: "It would be nice if they spoke English better"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Comfy plane overall, good and entertainment was good!"

Pros: "Getting off the plane, getting on the plane"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Lack of leg room; lack of air flow during entire flight and seats could adjust their own."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "So I never actually flew with Turkish this trip, but I can write about my rerouting experiences. Inbound my first connection to Istanbul was cancelled due to technical problems. Fortunately I was second in the ticket office line and was promptly rebooked with Lufthansa. My return flight was cancelled because of the coup, and again I was rebooked with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Overall Turkish Airlines did well in a difficult situation. But a few concerns. On my inbound flight, the agent servicing us was amazing and I was fortunate to be second in line, but the airline was ill prepared for the situation and the agent was being hung out to dry by his colleagues who kept calling him and wouldn't let him do his job. On the return flight, I was frustrated the agents at first pushed me to take a refund rather than letting me rebook with a partner. I ended up having to leave a day later than expected, and didn't get an itinerary till the morning after my original flight. This was all very stressful. Lastly, you have to think twice about flying through Turkey. Although this coup is over, the next crisis will be over whether President Erdogan creeping authoritarianism."

Pros: "Flight had only 10 minute delay and only an hour layover. Boarding was pleasent"
Cons: "As expected food wasn't that good, the crew was a little slow, and seemed like didn't care that much about passengers individual needs."

Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable and had more recline than most airlines."
Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff. This delay caused me and many others to miss connections in Istanbul. Also, the transfer process in Istanbul was very confusing; I was given wrong directions and waited twice in the wrong place before I found the right line to wait in."

Pros: "The food was great, entertainment was excellent, flight crew was pleasant, seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late and I nearly missed my connection as a result."

Pros: "Crew is amazing, as always"
Cons: "Allergic needs were not met"

Pros: "The boarding process was very good."

Cons: "Headphones or headphone plugs do not make good connection. Screen touch is hard to manage."

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, food was great and there was plenty of entertainment during the flight."
Cons: "I couldn't accumulate my miles."

Pros: "Went above and beyond"

Pros: "Over all is ok"
Cons: "Stay over in Istanbul, they gave only one meal for 24hr"

Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"

Cons: "Extra leg space. Nicer crew. Better airport and boarding experience"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Too little space for carry on compartments. Seats are too tight and tiny, very uncomfortable, staff not interacting or smiling, food was disgusting and tasteless, the aircraft seemed old and was so incredibly noisy the whole trip, and the ventilation was too bad the smell was just old and rusty."

Cons: "If a flight was delayed you should arrange something to enhance the security check procedure for the passengers of connecting flight. Qatar airways had done that for the passengers."

Pros: "They opened counter till before original traveling time by 30 minutes due to bad traffic conditions and delay of plane ."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like it"

Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."

Pros: "The aircraft , the cleanliness and the hospitable staff"
Cons: "The food was not as per the standard, the ticket said lunch but we got refreshments . The boarding took lots of time as they have forced us to remove a 1 kg excess to the 23kg allowed . Staff should make sure that people are sitting on their designated seats, rather than just guiding them to their seats. At least 4 were sitting not on their seats in row 15 and 16, these are what I saw"

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "No free internet service. Only one meal. Late departure, disorganized boarding. Uncomfortable seats. Limited choices of new movies. For a business class ticket, one would expect more! Especially since other regional carriers are providing two meals, free internet & more comfortable seats!"

Also passengers do not have to freeze all the flight time. i told them 10 times to reduce the blower and increse the temp. People were getting jackets to cover them as it was very cold. NO NEED FOR SUCH LOW TEMP FO SO LONG TIME very discomforting"

Cons: "I couldn't chose the Hindu meal when I booked ticket from Kayak and I had to suffer my entire journey not having food"

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."

Pros: "I always enjoyed etihad flights except this time that I regretted booking the flight through kayak. The second leg of the flight was on Pakistan International Airlines from Abu Dhabi to Islamabad that I didn't notice. Very dangerous airline. I think the sight should clearly warn u that the other segment of flight is on other line when u check flights. Because the flight detail showed only Etihad airways all the way to Islamabad"

Cons: "No dedicated bus or transport for first or business passengers!"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "The worst flight i ever had, Never going to book through Kayak again"
Cons: "Etihad never gave proper seat to my family, we were siting in diffrent places in all flights."

Pros: "we like the services....coming from LA to ABU DHABI time between flight was only 50 minutes but security check was really fast....overall We liked ETIHAD very much...a hassle free experince"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't bring my baggages when I arrived to riyadh they said might be come in one day it was first time i have had this experience with the airlines"

Pros: "Very old and not up to date . Not enough choice ."
Cons: "Wider choice more current content especially movies ."

Pros: "The cockpit crew was efficient in announcing the highlights of the flight.The landing and take off was smooth and flawless.The aircraft, an airbus 321 was clean."
Cons: "The service from Abudhabi to Cochin was worse than the so called cattle class.One simple instance, the food menu which was trumpeted and given to each passenger in the economy class, had three main entrees,viz Fish/chicken/vegetarian. When the food trolley came to my seat in the mid section of the plane, the hostess with almost a desperate look told me that only the vegetarian dish was available.I told her that I definetly need the fish or chicken dish.She scrounged around and ultimately gave me the fish choice whereas all the rest around me had to do with the vegetarian fare.Why this stupidity of a grandiose menu card?...The menu list states a list of liquor available in flight in the economy class.The hostess was serving the same only to those who specifically asked for it and that too as if she has to pay for the same.What a shame on the airline.You folks can do much better than this, in the so called cattle class.Sitting in a preassurised tube for more than 21 hours to reach ones destination is agony by itself, but then getting into your flight after seeing the goodies offered are only in paper, is a sad disappointment."

Pros: "Not much to specify...."
Cons: "Entertainment is not available until 10 mins after take off and it gets cut off 10 mins before landing...."

Pros: "Crew service was OK,"
Cons: "They make too much fussy about the ledge weight even it was few Lbs. over. they select the worse sits in the plane for my family. Very last row of sits. the worse site in the plane. even though we were the first in the line during the checking. This was the first time was with Etihad."

Pros: "Planes were good. Crew was ok. Except Checkin management not bad. There are other better airlines for same price."
Cons: "Checkin problems. They look for means to charge extra for handbag. Their handbag dimensions are smallest than any other airline. A standard carry on strolley will never fit their dimensions as they have it 7cm less in length and they harass passengers to pay for it. Very bad attitude."

Pros: "We loved the staff. Very nice and hardworking"
Cons: "System failure delayed take off by an hour"
