Cons: "Space of the seat and the ground crews(aiports) how come their less friendly than the crew on board!"
Pros: "I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."
Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."
Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Service, attentiveness, food."
Cons: "lack of ability to pay to upgrade even though there was plenty of empty business class. (Almost all seats were available)"
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"
Cons: "Meals & Snacks Meals served on board and in the lounges need improvement."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"
Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"
Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."

Pros: "Crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"

Pros: "Food was better than expected. Entertainment as good as any major airlines. Planes were new and modern."
Cons: "Flight attendants are not friendly and rude. Seat had a problem reclining."
Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "Had a good experience , comfortable check in , boarding , seating and polite crew . Good part was the flight was on time and on couple of occasions before time arrival . Great entertainment options in the flight ."
Cons: "I had requested vegiterian food but they were short of veg food options . they did not have enough veg food on board from Doha to Nagpur . also it would be great if they considered more interesting menu ."
Pros: "On time departures Good entertainment options Could charge my electronics"
Cons: "Food was ok Boarding was somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "The food was the best airline food out there. Also, the regular economy seats recline more than other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"

Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "The seats feel like a prison at times. It's a pain to ask to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "The staff was good and food as well had a great trip"
Pros: "One of the best cabin crew. Curtious, friendly, helpful and we're always available in the cabin."
Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice selection of movies. Very tasty vegetarian meals. Nice amount of recline on seats."
Cons: "After selecting seats in advance and reconfirming the day before flight upon check in, on arrival at airport our seats had been reassigned to the absolute worst seats on the airplane. The service was not good, with dirty food trays being left in front of us for over an hour at a time, service request call buttons going unanswered, and no beverage service until long after meals were served. Seats very firm for such a long flight. While meals were very good, snack options were terrible."
Cons: "Touch screens are hardly touch sensitive..you may need to replace the screens.."
Pros: "everything especially the crews"
Cons: "I was sat right in the middle of 10 children while people all around me had empty seats next to them. They could lay down and sleep while I got elbowed for 9 hours by a 10 year old."
Cons: "Because of delay they left me to sleep on the airport in Istanbul. I am pregnant and nobody didn't wanted to help me at transfer desk. Last time in my life with Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "old plane . . . showing wear and tear. no wifi"
Pros: "The food. The entertainment."
Cons: "Needs better seats! More room for long flights!"
Pros: "Amazing service ! Great food! Great amenities ! Very clean!!"
Pros: "The food and staff were great. The seats were rather comfortable and the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment system was of an older style wherein we had a choice of 3 movies and 7 "radio stations" across 15 or so "TV channels" rather than the fuller suite of entertainment options I'm used to on a Turkish Airlines flight."
Pros: "flight was on time helpful staff nice meals"
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Pros: "Quiet trip"
Pros: "Wonderful Airline , great seating , clean planes and cooperative cabin crews highly recommended.."

Cons: "foot and smile face"
Pros: "The aircraft were really nice and the service were great the air hostess were really nice"
Pros: "Connecting flight was not waiting from Instabul to Athens since the airplane from JFK left with a 1h 20min delay ."
Pros: "Entertainment system Availability of staff Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "It was extremely hot the whole flight everyone was uncomfortable Coach seats need more leg space and the recliner on my seat didn't work"
Pros: "The plane was late taking off which made the connection in Istanbul tight. The fact that there were no announcemts made it somewhat stressful finding the gate which was very far from the location where we deplaned. Other than that, the food was great and the staff pleasant enough."
Cons: "2 times my movie screen didn't work. One time I was able to shift over to another seat and use a different iPad. Good movie selection."
Cons: "We were flying to JFK from TLV via IST. First flight was canceled and then re-scheduled after landing we were stuck for more than 3 hours inside airplane in Istanbul, then we were stuck inside the plane for 6 hours !!!!! Nightmare"
Pros: "My flight was delayed to begin with and then from turkey to islamabad the flight was diverted to karachi and due to unknow reason and i spent 12 hours at the airport without because the flight attendents reached their limit. Worst airline."
Cons: "Cramped. This is how I would describe my flight. Very tight. Seats close together, a bit claustrophobic. Made the 9 hour flight seem twice as long. Plane was an Airbus 300 (I think) Service was fine and attendants friendly but I'd think twice about flying long-distance with Turkish again on this Airbus model."
Pros: "Food was great! Drinks was varied The crew was very nice and thoughtful"
Cons: "There was no entertainment since the system didn't work all the flight. All the boarding things was very poor both sides of flight. Big delay!!"

Pros: "Turkish airlines never gave me notice or explanation. At least Kayak gave me notice and i appreciate."
Cons: "For example the menu has fish or chicken but majority of passesengers did not have chance to get fish due to the limited number. Other than everything was great"
Pros: "Unnecessary delays, very rude and inconsiderate crew, both inflight and at the Istanbul Airport. They provided no accommodations for those that missed connections and had very poor organizations. Also, as a physician that was called to a medical emergency on the flight, I received not even a thanks. Also, they were very delayed in getting the medical supplies to us physicians and requires ID prior to opening the emergency kit which definitely delayed care!"
Cons: "Delays, inconsiderate crew, poorly managed medical situations, no hotel accommodations with prolonged flight delays, poor communication to passengers"
Cons: "the 7 hr delay and having to wait in line for 2 hrs to rebook in stead of being able to call a number."
Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"
Cons: "I miss my flight from Istanbul to sofia due a technical issues leaving JFK International Airport from NY and no one was waiting for us to make sure we can get to our connect fligt on time. Thank you Turkish Airlines for letting me stay 11 hours on your stupid airport and missing one day of may vacation. I will never ever again flight with you!"
Pros: "Top notch"
Cons: "The seats were close together and I felt crowded"
Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines must have tried hard to squeeze in a few extra seats. Legroom used to be little but manageable. Now it is just painful. Also the food or service is not what it used to be."
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."
Cons: "It seemed difficult to get the attention of a stewardess for another drink. I guess I could have hit the button calling for someone, but I always feel like too much of a diva by doing that."
Pros: "great experience! I will highly recommend Turkish Airlines! Loved the slippers! Great food!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."
Pros: "The food is really good, they still are trying to do airline travel like it used to be - with great service and proper meals, menus and snacks. Lovely staff too."
Cons: "Inadequate space for rollie luggage - most compartments don't accomodate - and the flight attendants became frazzled as time went on - sometimes they were rude when you asked for water or a soda - I think because they would be coming by with a drinks cart in a second, but we don't always know that."
Cons: "Two women fight over space the entire flight and the flight crew were indifferent about it."
Pros: "Good experience flying the airline including: Checkin process including securing me the last exit row seat Boarding went quickly Meals were plenty and good - also had a menu Provided a personal case with things like socks etc Connection was smooth for me Customer service in general was good"
Cons: "Only negative experience was that I had a connecting flight with a small window (1 hour) in Istanbul and my bag didn't make the same flight as me so I was without it for a half day. However they handled the situation well - knew where my bag was, sent it on the next flight and delivered it to my hotel so it wasn't too inconveniencing."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier. Also they should come around more often for trash collection"
Pros: "Very pleasent crew, yummy foods and excellent trıp"
Pros: "Seat was private, comfortable, accommodating. Service was really great, food was delicious. totally nice flight."
Cons: "It took a bit long to get a drink on the flight (over two hours) but that is probably because it's not really in the Turkish religious culture to drink ... other than that, it was a beautiful flight!"
Pros: "good food"
Cons: "seat spacing too crowded"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "I wish there was a wife"
Cons: "That every person we spoke to since getting notification the original flight was delayed lied to us and misled us and failed to help us. Our vacation was completely ruined by booking with this airline."

Cons: "At check in"
Pros: "Nothing, they loose my luggage, so I want my luggage back in 1 day or refund my money"
Cons: "They loose my luggage."

Pros: "Punctuality of Eithad Airways,cooperative staff and smooth process"
Cons: "Checking of irrelevant documents"
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive stewardesses. Beautiful too"
Cons: "The internet connection "Wi-Fly" is very weak. Data rates are outrageous. $4.95 plan is basically good for 5 minutes, $11.95 plan maybe lasts 10 minutes. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Crew was so nice"
Cons: "Food is so bad"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Pros: "The staff were kind, professional, attentive, and each person brought a warm elegance to their interactions with patrons. My seat ate who was a stranger to me got messily sick and the attendant was gracious and helpful to her. Also the meal from Abu Dhabi to Bengaluru was the most delicious I've ever had on any flight, which includes some international first class travel."
Cons: "I have long thighs so my knees butted against the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Head will hit the wall when using sink in toilet"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous"
Cons: "Only one wheel chair was provided during the flight to NY"
Cons: "Ground staff is so inefficient and checkin process at JFK and boarding at AUH is abysmal. Ground staff at JFK have no regard for time and on time departure. Seriously lacking in entertainment options inflight and food is mediocre. Etihad is seriously lagging other competitors from same region like Enirates. This would effect my choice airline for my future travels."
Pros: "Well mannered behaviour of all staff on board"
Cons: "No staff officers to assist people like me who came on wheel chair. I was in the queaue for nearly 2 hours, Some of the counters were not manned at all."
Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"
Pros: "I like service in cabines"
Cons: "I didn't like service in JFK counters..they didn't let me in my hand carrying bag to cabin..but some passengers had big bags then my bag..."
Pros: "We bought ticket from New York to Islamabd round trip ticket and fly on August 22nd. After changed plan in Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, there was rain in Islamabad and all flight diverted to Lahore, so our Etihad air plan diverted to Lahore too. once the weather cleared in few hours , all air line did fly back to Islamabad a 50 minutes flight but unfortunately Etihad air way force everyone out of airplane by force. They used police to beat up passenger very bad and drags them out. Then put all passenger in old Bus to Islamabad a 5 hours trip. One of worst air line in my life. We bought ticket for Islamabad not for Lahore. They should take us back to Islamabad after rain stop like other air line did but only Etihad air way did not fly back and beat all passenger by using police on them, it took us 34 hours to get home."
Cons: "Etihad air way should apologize to each passenger and Reimburse them 1/4 of the ticket. otherwise lot of people will give up this airline . 2nad their meal was very bad. bread was not fully cooked. they cooked only Hindy food. not every person is Hindu. It welcome to providr hindu food when travel india but when it travel to Pakistan or Bangladesh it should name it Hindu meal."
Pros: "Service was great, check in was easy. Planes are roomy enough for economy seating. Food was decent for airplane food."
Cons: "There was a delay due to poor weather. Although I was still able to make it to my connecting flight in time, they automatically switch my flight due to my bags not having enough time to be transported to the plane. As a result, I was stranded in Abu Dhabi for 12 hours. In fairness it's not the airlines fault and they did provide a hotel and shuttle bus for my short stay. What added to the frustration was the fact that they waited for the shuttle bus to be completely full (with people sitting in aisles) before taking us to the hotel. We got there too late for dinner, since all that waiting around resulted in a two hour trip for what should have taken 20 minutes. Since we had to leave so early in the AM, we didn't get breakfast either."
Cons: "AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. The staff was OK only. The entertainment was sub par. I recently flew Delta domestic flights and it had many newer English and Hindi movies than on this flight to India, go figure. I think even Air India may have newer and many more movie choices than this air line. I flew my sick father with Catheter business class but the restrooms in the business class were same small pigeon hole size. We could not even fit inside to empty out the bag. Don't buy business thinking of the luxury of space. It is a myth."
Pros: "On this leg the general courtesy was great especially one particular hostess, Nikita. The movies and certain music on the menu were a good range."
Cons: "The food! 12 hours of mediocrity in a aluminium foil. My wife and my hand held consoles were not working and hence we couldn't use our reading light besides some other functional limitations. An elderly lady sitting in front of me had a bad bout of chills because of the cabin temperature (most probably) the staff never followed up on the help that fellow passengers had given to the lady. My prior two flights with this airliner were much worse My A380 experience in the Emirates has been MUCH more spacious and great meals with a predictably jollier staff. Qatar airways can perhaps even top that. The only thing I feel etihad has over these better rivals is the convenience of the US Immigration. As a NATIONAL CARRIER of the UAE, I'm quite unimpressed and disappointed."
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "Very think good"
Pros: "Nothing...at check-in I was made to pay for 10 kgs for having 1 kg over weight"
Cons: "Everything...crew from JFK to Abu Dhabi was fussy and overall very rude...didn't even serve food properly"
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Check in attendants at JFK were very unclear."
Pros: "The economy seats have an innovative recline which really adds to comfort, especially for such a long trans-Atlantic flight. The crew was very professional and helpful. Efficient. The entire Etihad Experience was excellent. The boarding happened on schedule, the flights as promised. No missed connections, no issues with baggage. Top Notch. Very clean aircraft."
Cons: "For whatever reason they would not let me keep my carry-ons as JetBlue did, so I had to check one of them. They have weight limits for the carry-ons, which I understand, but in my case they really were not large, and not very heavy. It is what it is."
Pros: "It's amazing flight ever Ghezlan the hostess she awesome and helpful with all the passengers I love her cause she's wonderful"
Cons: "Faulty Seats. Had to change seats thrice. luckily, the flight was not that full. Seats were not reclining at all."
Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Pros: "I was more than pleasantly surprised by the level of service, comfort and food on this flight. I typically dread these long haul flights, but this was actually a pleasant experience. The fold flat seats are comfortable and roomy, the food and meal service, when you want it is convenient if you wish to dine on your schedule, not the airlines and the general high level and friendly service was much appreciated. The "lounge" space they have between the first and business class cabins is fantastic; its a small bar like area where you can get out of your seat and chat with other passengers, watch news, read or whatever, and not be confined to your seat. Overall a great experience, Arrived having slept, eat and drank well."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Pros: "Give more food options"
Pros: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Small toilets, tighter seats"
Cons: "No other options but mostly spicy"
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: "The boarding process was seamless"
Cons: "The fact that my screen did not work and i could not sleep on the flight. It was very painful and nothing was done"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, it was clean and prompt."
Cons: "More movie selection would be nice"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Pros: "I sat in the aisle seat so it was fairly roomy. The movies selection was very good."
Cons: "The Air Hostess was fairly rude to one particular passenger. Given that that passenger was fairly aggressive in asking for children kits, and the Air Hostess was doing her best to inform her that she has to give them all to the children first. Unfortunately it was very condescending the way she talked to the said lady. I felt that it could have been handle better. The guy next to me, his On Flight entertainment wasn't working. i felt bad for him."
Pros: "The staff as helpful and attentive"
Pros: "It got me from my home country to my destination."
Cons: "The movie selection was just mediocre...other airlines have much better (wider selection) & newer films. Also the flight attendants never woke me up for my 2nd meal, even though I very clearly used the sleep-mask provided that said "wake me up for meals" written in all over the front. I don't understand why this system was set in place if your cabin crew aren't going to use it...? Also did not like the mango custard -- was a bit weird. I'd recommend just plane/vanilla custard -- these flavors are much more widely appreciated by everyone. Mango is too quaint, even for those requesting hindu-vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The Airline light staff were polite and very professional! I felt accommodated and my questions were answered in a timely fashion. Did I also mention their entertainment system on board is epic lol"
Cons: "Make make an announcement to fellow passengers not to leave the lavatory a complete mess."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for more than 2 hours for flight to take off. Missing the connecting flight to New Delhi from Abu Dhabi. Stranded in the Abu Dhabi terminal for more than 24 hours to get back to New Delhi. The airline did not provide a room to stay & forced to stay in the terminal for 24 hours. Never ever travel via Etihad."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time and it was uneventful - just what you want from a long journey."
Cons: "There can always be a little more leg room, can't there?"
Pros: "Courtesy of employees"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I like the crew but at Abu Dhabi airport custmer service is poor I lost my scarf at airplane it was too complicated to get it and I was running out of time so I left it"
Cons: "I did not like the food now befor it was good it seems it is for vegetarians only it was Ramadan and they should take. care of that overall it is a good air line mostly I travel with Etihad seats are smaller"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and excellent in-flight service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving New York and arrived Abu Dhabi late. Had to rush to catch the connecting flight."
Pros: "First time flyer with them and can't say enough hood things about it. Wonderful airlines."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled at JFK..No food voucher or hotel voucher given.. No assistance in getting to near by airport for rescheduled flight. Flight has been cancelled 2 times already. Stuck in New york from last one day. Ethihad needs to do more for international passengers to help them find an accommodation at least. There was nobody to help or a distress center available at JFk airport."
