Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "It just felt like you are constantly given food and drinks while having an endless amount of entertainment at your fingertips."
Pros: "Minus the food incident below most of the staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "I ordered a bland meal not knowing it would be fish, which I'm allergic to, and when asked if I could have something else, the steward did not even attempt to find me or offer me another meal, so I went without one. I had an almost 12 hour flight with no food, that was disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "High end crew"
Cons: "Food and spaces between seats"
Pros: "Baggage policy and amenities on board as well as the Istanbul airport as a connector."
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Cons: "baby food could have been served baby bassinet installed only after asking multiple times"
Pros: "flights on time. special meals I ordered were provided."
Cons: "very long check-in line. took over 1hr to check in. tried to check-in online in advance, but system did not allow me to do this."
Pros: "All was great, until..."
Cons: "... the person in front of me reclined their seat. That was the end of my comfort. I’m 5.11”- 1.80cm. Couldn’t watch tv, had trouble eating."
Pros: "Attaturk airport, nothing about the flight itself"
Cons: "Rude staff & flight attendants."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is obviously outdated and very crowded. Only one restroom for a huge area around gates 300-309."
Pros: "The flight was slightly comfortable, there were more food and snacks options than in other aircraft companies."
Cons: "Some of the crew were very rude, making a point to show you that they were hassled by serving you. I thought that was poor service. The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggages where ruined and there was heavy rain. The luggages where left out instead of being protected l, damaging clothing and the luggages themselves."
Cons: "Crew was. It helpful at all. They created more confusion and frustration. I spend 24 hours calling and talking to them in order to rebook the flight. Worst experience ever"
Cons: "Crew were rude and everything we asked for was an issue like we didn't exist not sure if they had a problem because we had a baby with us"
Pros: "Attentive crew, great food including perfect attention to our pre-arrangement for vegan meals. Good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Very professional. Also the transfer in Istanbul was very easy."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my seat. the footrest, rather than helping, got in the way of extending my legs."
Pros: "The entertainment and accommodations were superb. I appreciate all the things they think of to make you comfortable. The seats were a bit hard but they reclined nicely."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Helped us with luggage. Also, the food was excellent and abundant."
Pros: "Friendly hard working staff. Great entertainment choices."
Cons: "Constant long interruptions of entertainment by rather dumb announcements. Seats didn't recline and were truly packed in."

Cons: "Horrible customer service. We paid in case of change in flight plan .your airline said no money back."
Cons: "Worst wheel chair service"
Pros: "I was nervous to fly Turkish Airlines; however, the crew was professional and the experience was very positive. I felt safe and well cared for."

Cons: "It was red eye, and the light in the cabin did not turn off for a long time."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
Pros: "Flight was great, booking agents, flight attendants all superb."
Cons: "Airport in Istanbul could use an upgrade. Poor gate directions and signs. No jetways, meaning they bus you out to the plane each time. This adds to time needed to change planes and may be inconvenient for older people who struggle with climbing stairs or carrying bags."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "food is always great, even if my flight is two hours or less. seats are comfortable and I enjoy the leg space."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, the entertainment screen haven't changed since 2001 i guess; very bad quality, and it broke down at the middle of flight."
Pros: "Lots of nice little amenities (lip balm, sleep mask). Tons of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Seats were small, old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food was acceptable for a person from the US. The seats were adequately comfortable but seats were shorter than our Istanbul to Dhaka flight."
Cons: "The leg room was too short for a six foot tall American."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this airline. The service was great. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Sadly the airlines treat us like cattle now the way they squeeze us in like sardines in their non-adjustable seats. This appears to be true on all most airlines."
Cons: "Yolculuk genel anlamda iyiydi fakat bagajim kayboldu. Thy gibi bir kurumda bagaj kaybolmasini anlayamiyorum. Tum guvenimi kaybettim."
Cons: "The flight left very early, without prior warning, so that I almost missed it, despite arriving at the gate at the designated boarding time! The breakfast was also barely edible, which was a surprise as the other times I have flown Turkish the food has been delicious."
Pros: "The price and timings"
Cons: "Cabin crew not accommodating as would not hang my coat which I never had any problem traveling internationally. Toilets very small and smelly. Toilet pack was good as they included slippers."

Cons: "the cabin temperature was too warm making the flight rather uncomfortable."

Cons: "Turbulenca were crazy for 10 hours straight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
Pros: "Everything else"
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Pros: "The overall flight was good."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Cons: "Missed our connection. Spent the night in Minneapolis. Luckily we had no urgent reason to get home to."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "Staff are friendly"

Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"
Pros: "Excellent flight and crew on a new Airbus 319"

Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Cons: "Row 36 is a disaster."
Pros: "flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Very old dirty plane"
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "Old plane Zero entertainment First class seats worn thin and uncomfortable. I've been flying AA quite a bit lately and thought I'd give Delta another try. Too bad, it's clearly not up to today's standards"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "The entertainment units were terrible. Touch screens effectively impossible to operate in this 737-800."
Cons: "I left my wallet on this flight. It was extremely frustrating that I was unable to speak to a live person to find out if the wallet had been recovered. I filled out the form online and now have to wait 2 to 3 weeks!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and easy. For the first time on any airline, the crew was over-the-top friendly and my special meal request was excellent."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Pros: "I liked nothing, because the flight was 4hrs late and had 20 on standby."
Cons: "4hrs late, 20 on standby, missed connection, had to travel a day later and spent 14hrs in the airport."
Cons: "I'm just glad that we got to the airport 2 1/2 hours early because we needed it. We had to check a dog so we had to go through the special needs line, they had 2 out of 20 of ticket lines open. My wife also needs a wheelchair and after 45 minutes of standing in line, I spoke to one of the idiots that are supposed to be there to help and he went and got a wheelchair which I had to push my wife in the wheelchair through the zig zag line with 2 large suit cases and a dog. It took us an hour and a half to get tickets and then they called for someone to push the wheelchair and we where told to wait for them there. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to come but no one came so I started pushing her towards the Sercurity check line and finally someone came to push her and he stayed on his phone the entire time. When my wife got to the point where she needed to walk through the metal detector she was having a little trouble getting out of the chair so they told her to just stay in the chair and they would push her through in the wheelchair. When she got through, they almost strip searched her and patted her down like she was a criminal. That took another 25 minutes!!! They the guy pushed her to our gate and insisted on taking the chair back with him, so 5 minutes later they asked if it was anyone who needed assistance getting on the plane. I went up and told them that my wife needed a chair to get on the plane so they had to call and get another chair which took another 10 minutes and finally we got on the plane. It took us 2 hours and 15 minutes to get a ticket and go through Sercurity!!!! Very very very unprofessional!!!"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work very well. ( picture was fine but the function buttons were terrible)."
Pros: "Fabulous service"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The downstairs bathrooms were great: five roomy clean bathrooms, always one available. The crew was superb, professional, kind, capable. The entire trip was perfection. The timing of both flights, the airports, it was travel at its best. We love Lufthansa. We have tremendous confidence in them."
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and greater selection of spirits would be nice."
Pros: "Cuteous service"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, nomlegroom, impossible when set in front reclined. Breakfast food meager."
Pros: "On time with good service."
Cons: "Food - barely edible as usual. Economy seats seem to be getting tighter and with little leg room."
Pros: "Great service and timeliness."
Cons: "I wasn’t offered earphone headset so I could not enjoy entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was almost on time, boarding is always cumbersome but personel very helpful"
Cons: "Too many extra charges now, especially baggage. Breakfast was skimpy and no consideration for health"
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."
Pros: "Very smooth flight, great service. Chose the first row in economy which had tons of legroom. Connected in Frankfurt, very easy connection."
Cons: "Passport control in Frankfurt doesn't open until 530a so we all had to wait in line. The TV monitor was not as sensitive and would fall easily downwards sometimes."
Pros: "Comfort, food, service - all were superb."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Very friendly stewards, great in lounge boarding for Gold members, great to have sparkling wine as a choice for economy too!"
Cons: "Tiny chairs, tiny leg room, crappy airplane food"
Pros: "Good food and movies"
Cons: "seat had problems mechanically"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding was fast, easy, great. The crew was very nice and good. The overall service was excellent."
Cons: "the food was on medium level compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Everything was perfectly on time. Pilots were excellent and crew very attentive."
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "Safety and ease of flying- cleanliness too"
Cons: "No food at all! The system for getting food was unclear."
Pros: "Excellent service....very comfortable."
Pros: "Clarity of informations"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."
Cons: "And packed in like rolled up silk undergarments."
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, good blankets and lighting. Perfect for what I needed."
Cons: "Missed my flight because of other flight delayed. I had to rerouted through 2 extra airports."
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Comfort, choice in movies, leg room, toilets on one level and plenty, staff helpful"
Cons: "Direct flight, 10 days ago. Still missing a suitcase."
Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Pros: "Overall the flight was mostly fine. It was a huge plane, but boarding and exiting were efficiently handled by the crew. The seats were comfortable and there was sufficient leg room. Meals were totally acceptable for an international flight, and the complimentary booze was immensely appreciated."
Cons: "My biggest gripe, however, was with the malfunctioning entertainment system directly in front of my wife's seat. The screen intermittently flickered on and off, and would go black for long streches of time. Kudos to the attentive crew for trying their best to fix the device during the flight, but their efforts did not solve the problem. It was disappointing not to have a working entertainment system for such a long international flight--it would have made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "The entertainment was terrific for a long flight. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The service was very good throughout the whole trip."
Pros: "The staff were excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. I for got her name but the attendant who greeted us at our seats (57h & k) was so sweet. She made my wife and feel vey comfortable. Very attentive. We also trust Lufthansa to be on top of things"
Cons: "Sitting in a plane on a long flight but the staff made it easier and the entertainment options were very good."
Pros: "To compare with most of the company, you are in the top. I like the fact that the boarding was done well, the crew is efficient, quite, legroom, corridor room, may be the food can be improved. Quite and relaxing flight. I really appreciated."
Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"
Pros: "It was delightful to discover that Lufthansa serves delicious complimentary meals! So few US airlines do that. I also really liked the layout with the toilets downstairs."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was very pleasant and supportive of families with children"
Cons: "The seats are designed for individuals who weight less than 100 lbs and no taller than 5'5". Granted, this was an economy seat. However, I should be able to sit in a seat without the seat in front of me literally 6 inches away from my face. I have traveled internationally countless times, but never have experienced such an uncomfortable flight. I will never fly with Lufthansa internationally again.not because of the crew, because their head office insists on squeezing every inch out of their planes without regard for passenger comfort."
Pros: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."
Cons: "No room in the seats. The food was poor. Pasta very dry tastless. 3 tbs if salad. One bite of desert."
Pros: "Nice crew, water waiting for me at my seat and other small amenities that made a big difference. Great entertainment system on board."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment"
Cons: "There was no indication at Kayak that there is a charge to pick a seat before the day of the flight. I understand premium choice, but this was for every seat reservation. The seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late and with no explanation"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The delay, otherwise fine"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food were fantastic, the crew was friendly, and everything was very clean."
Cons: "The connecting flight was late."
Pros: "Flights were not full, very nice! Entertainment system was vast and the quality was great, brand new movies and shows."
Cons: "More than one type of beer please, I was economy class so comfort will always me just ok, nothing to really be done there"
Cons: "Everything, this was a total nightmare, my flight left Boston two hours late and my connecting flight in Munich had already left for Pisa. They then put me on a flight that day to Rome so I could get a flight from there to Pisa and when I got to Rome they ended up printing me a wrong boarding pass to Pisa and I ended up in Florencewhich I then had to take a train to Pisa because there were no other flights going to Pisa from Florence that day and the topper is I still have no luggage as they LOST it."
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "no traveller pack, toothpaste, etc. seats too tight."
Cons: "1. The crew from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade was appalling. As we touched down at Belgrade Tesla airport, and were still taxiing, many passengers stood up, opened up the overhead compartments, took out their carry-on bags (some were pretty big hard top) and left it on the aisle. The overhead compartment doors were left open and once or twice the crew at the back murmured them to sit on their seats and strap themselves. But neither did the crew come up to severely reprimand them nor did the passengers seem to care. IT WAS THE MOST SHOCKING EXPERIENCE in my over 25 years of flying. Terrible service on part of Etihad Crew. 2. We'd just an hour's transit in Abu Dhabi airport and there were numerous passengers still trying to disembark from the Kochi-Abu Dhabi flight, pass through security checks, walk quite a distance to the gate and then get on to the bus to board the aircraft. Strangely there was no Etihad personnel helping us to navigate through this absolute chaos. Many people, young and old, were literally running with their bags. Some of us yelled that we'd a short connection and then one of the ground staff tried to make way for us to navigate through the huge queues waiting for security. This process could've been managed infinitely better. Just imagine if there were elderly passengers or little children? 3. Food was terrible. I'm a vegetarian and usually Asian vegetarian is reasonably good. In this case the rice was poorly cooked (grainy), lacked any variety (anybody who's familiar with Asian food can assure you that there're amazingly tasty and healthy vegetarian dishes that can be prepared - if Etihad needs help they're welcome to contact me). I'm surprised by all this. Try Emirates and one can see the quality of the food. 4. We'd to collect our boarding passes at Belgrade airport. We've a carte de legitimation (CDL) residence card for Switzerland but it seemed obvious that the ground staff at Belgrade have no clue what a Swiss CDL looks like. My wife who's a South African national cannot obviously enter Switzerland without a visa but the CDL is a legitimate document and that should have been it. Further we'd been checked in from Kochi to Zurich (and our bags had been checked through to ZRH). It's obvious that Belgrade staff are poorly trained and it caused unnecessary waiting time (nearly 30 minutes) and senior staff had to be summoned to clarify. I'm terribly disappointed with the overall service of Etihad. I'll never fly through Belgrade for sure. It's horrible and the travel desk were not particularly helpful. In fact I'm considering never to fly Etihad again."

Cons: "No a lot."

Pros: "On-ground customer service of Ethiad, Fatima. She was professional and understanding."
Cons: "Don’t overlook international flights and penalize travelers who don’t have a seat selection but checked in on time."
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness, the beautiful kind staff, and most important of all, the safe flight -- oh yeah, I loved sampling your world class music selection"
Cons: "for a tall guy you need to raise the seats a bit; the food was better than most airplane food but overcooked rice and fish was meh ... it's hard to image how an industrially prepared food could be better, but until you figure it out I'll keep packing my lunch"

Pros: "The neatness and entertainment system"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "THIS FLIGHT WAS NEVER USED HE WAS REFUSED ENTRY INTO LEBANON AND WE CALLED IMMEDIATELY TO USE THE FLIGHT EARLY TO GO BACK TO USA AND THEY REFUSED TO CHANGE IT. WE ASK TO HAVE CREDIT ON A FUTURE FLIGHT AND WE WERE DENIED. WE FLY EMPLOYEES LL OVER THE WORLD WE WILL NOT USE YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN."
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."

Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"

Pros: "I am extremely thankful for the service of ETIHAD Airline crew for their service. It was my very first time flying Etihad Airways and I was wearing a knee brace due t an injury yet the crew was able to accommodate me to a seat that had more leg room. Kudos to the staff and the airline crew for the great job they have done."
Pros: "attentive staff"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful, fast to attend."
Cons: "Seats are small, decor is old. Bread was stale."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."

Pros: "Etihad knows how to make you feel special, lot of smiles and nice crew who are the real hosts, never get tired and always are ready to help."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The crew was curtious, flight on time, good and clean planes, met all expectations."
Cons: "Terrible food. Couldn't care less crew."
Cons: "Flight attendants (crew) need to be a bit more passenger friendly. Most of them just don't care about good service. I am a frequent flier having flied for 30 years nationally and internationally via numerous airlines. I am an "easy" passenger who is not demanding in any manner. So this opinion comes from a person like me."
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "1. Food choices from NYC to Abu Dhabi were only lamb or Indian cuisine (chicken kofta or veg), no seafood option. Very few extras were given with the meal or between meals (no fruit, candy bars, peanuts, etc. on the flight). 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
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."
Cons: "The comfort for a long haul flight is never great, but the seats were exceptionally small and cramped (and I am a small person). The in flight internet I purchased but was unable to use after being charged for more that one email -- it went out and stayed out. $22 down the lost unless I can get refunded, which I have requested. If Etihad doesn't refund me, I will be taking it up with Paypal as well as other review sites and business channels."
Pros: "I thought the food was awesome, and not just for airline food. The vegetarian that I had was excellent. Crew was very friendly and helpful, plane was clean, seats comfortable. On the long flight we were all supplied (even in economy!) earplugs, a neck pillow, blanket and earphones. Everyone has their own little screen and the TV and movie selections were good, like having cable TV in the air, but no commercials."
Cons: "The ear plugs looked pretty cheesy, but I had my own and never actually tried them. I could always use more legroom, but that is a standard complaint I have with all airlines."
Pros: "Great Headrest Neck Pillow Comfy Headphones Large Toilets"
Cons: "Bathroom floors were wet most of the time."
Pros: "Food entertainment comfort. Good"
Cons: "Baggage strictness for 100 grams in a luggage."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were professional and courteous. I would like to thank the staff particularly on my return journey who were very courteous and professional."
Cons: "Vegetarian food. The airlines need to differentiate clearly between regular vegetarian Vs special vegetarian meals. Special vegetarian meal is tasteless and has nothing in it. Also, the food portions are small and it wouldn't hurt the business if they include a decent snack in between the meals. Food wise, its a lean mean cuisine."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, but I wasn't informed until after a kiosk told me to check with an attendant. After waiting in line for an hour to find out my flight was cancelled, I was told I could either go to LaGuardia for a 1955 flight or I could wait until tomorrow at the same time. Neither flight was guaranteed and since they use AA, there was no other airline I could use to fly out of JFK or get home that day. I paid the $14 to bus over to LaGuardia where my flight was delayed repeatedly and I didn't arrive in PGH until nearly 11p. (scheduled to arrive @ 1720) The flight itself was not bad nor did the crew do a bad job, it was more the general indifference and treatment in between."
Pros: "Bad bording"
Cons: "Bad food"
Cons: "I had requested a special meal on my profile. before my onward journey I had also verified at the gate that my special meal was included. 1) they ran out of meals and didn't even realize that i had a special meal - they did try to accommodate and infact i think one of the meals looked like it came from the crew themselves. However it should not be the case 2) the cafe items are not marked for special meals. they ran out of vegetarian items by the time they reached my seat. as a result i had no food at snack time at all."
