Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing and food was good"
Cons: "Rest area could had been better"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."

Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"
Pros: "Crew was good and helpful. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They could have given me an other flight so that I could attend the wedding I was going for. I gotta flight after 12 hours and 10 hours lay-off in Doha. Even if I didn’t get that long layover, I could have been able to attend the wedding."
Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

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."

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"

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 )"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, food was good."
Cons: "Lot of inconvenience for transit passengers, sitting area was closed, had to look around for a comfortable place to spend 4 hours."

They made sure the older 3 got their infotainment system working and setup the bassinets for the twins."

Cons: "food and long layover"
Pros: "Besides noted above the arrival on time."
Cons: "Seat bookings in just fly are messed up. Kayak took me to just fly for the bookings. The seats for the the 16hr+ flight on just fly we're window seats however at time of check-in I got middle seats in the center 4 seats. It was the worst flight booking experience on kayak so far."
Cons: "Upon arrival at the final destination, I couldn’t find one of my 2 checked baggages, asked the emirates ground staff and i was told that they were unable to track the bag and not sure if it was loaded on to the aircraft at the origin airport or lost in transit. Lost my wedding suite and fiancé ‘s wedding gown and plenty other wedding things."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. I had to file a complaint with emirates office."

Cons: "Noisy seat n very less leg room"
Pros: "Everything from the plane, crew service and timing. Excellent"
Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "I loved everything from the food, the crew, the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I think this is hard to fix which is the comfort level. I was not avale to sleep well as the seats were a bit stiff. But it still one of the better seats I have been on for a long flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment set up, a free hour of wifi and good food. The wifi was priced fairly. Overall, it was a pleasant flight that I even managed to go to sleep. I normally can't sleep on planes."
Cons: "The entitled passengers and other rude passenger behavior."
Pros: "The fligh went smooth"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "After exhausting flight I don't know what else to say"
Pros: "Evening thing"
Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"
Pros: "Bumped up to first class"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."
Pros: "Felt at home"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible and not enough cushioning"
Pros: "Same comments as above."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth ride new plane from SF to Dubail"
Cons: "Business class too expensive for individual travelers"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Plane comfort make the flight a pleasent one and less tiring."
Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Pros: "Nothing much to complain about"
Cons: "Shuttters always closed"
Pros: "Slept well with minimal disturbances form the air hostess."
Cons: "Cannot specify dietary restrictions while checking as it was not enabled"

Cons: "If 5 pounds is over to figure it out and go thru and next time will doit Wright"
Cons: "Everything was great, service was awesome! Thanks to everyone!"

Pros: "Boarding that’s all."
Cons: "Food, crew, entertainment they should upgrade the TV very important it’s very outdated but Istanbul airport is awesome."
Pros: "The food was awful. Cold sandwiches all the way. Frozen drinks. No hot drinks at all."
Cons: "Change the variety of the food same as other airlines do"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful even though English is not their first language."
Cons: "Maybe the food expections."
Pros: "i like the food and movie choices."
Cons: "Crew was little bit rude. They didn’t help me to find the spot for my carry on luggage."
Cons: "Check in is insanely long. Terminal 1 at JFK as usually Absolutely terrible. Line to go thru TSA is exacting 40 min at 12 am Midnight. We pay so much (in the price of our ticket) to be treated as cattle !!!"
Pros: "The staff member who checked me in was very friendly"
Cons: "the inflight staff needs to improve their behaviour in dealing with passengers. Some were quite rude. The aircraft seats were extremely cramped. The food selection was quite poor."
Cons: "The business class seats on Turkish fully recline which is my top criteria. The window seats don't have direct aisle access though. The food was good as always on the flight. The weakest part of their offering is in the entertainment area where the movies are out of date and the TV series haphazard."
Pros: "On time flights. Free entertainment. Good food. God plane."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "That was extremely nice of the company that we had that little package with toothpaste, toothbrush, pillow, slippers etc. Very happy about that."
Cons: "I wish I could have access to wifi on the plane, to tell my family how I was doing."

Pros: "Excellent service. Very tasty food."
Cons: "Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system."
Pros: "Food and service in business class were splendid."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "Food was great. Crew was nice overall."
Cons: "When we arrived they tried to convince us to let our 4 year old fly w a broken tray table. After escalating they wanted to remove us but some other passengers intervened and helped. Entertainment system totally sucks. Movie selection was good but a headache to navigate."
Pros: "Food on flight was good, captain was good pilot"
Cons: "Flight from NY to Thessaloniki had a medical emergency. Plane was diverted to Manchester Airport in England to help patient on flight. This caused over 3.5 hour late arrival into Istanbul. This caused me to miss onnnection flight. There was very poor information or guidance by staff once we arrived into airport. I had to walk long long distances from the gate without assistance. I had requested wheelchair assistance considering I just had spinal cord surgery and In need of assistance. I was forced to stay over night in Istanbul and waited over 12 hours next day in airport for next available flight to Thessaloniki. I missed my brothers wedding night and could not be his best man for wedding from ordeal which was not fair! I also payed a premium price close to 1000k USA dollars for flight I could of booked many tickets with such a long layover and extra expenses buying a visa and food for half the fare I payed. This was not fair especially when a plane is diverted for medical emergency! To top it all off being a medical doctor I loaned and assisted staff with passenger and offered my consultation. services to emergency medical physician whom was called by crew for help and finally which reccomended to divert flight to Manchester to assist the passenger In crisis! Your welcome Turkish Airlbes Kindly Dr Tamir Kharouba MD"
Pros: "The food, comfort and wine on Turkish Airlines was wonderful."
Cons: "Turkish Airline’s needs to improve their online experience. Please just pay someone to fix it - you don’t have the city of Los Angeles as a option for home address. In case TA’s web developers are reading this, Los Angeles is the city with LAX in it. I guess you don’t have to know every city, but maybe download a complete list of cities and use that? There are lots of open source options and I can help you, if it gets confusing. Or, alternatively, allow users to type their city with a keyboard. Scrolling through every city in the state of California is not easier than typing Los Angeles. Especially when arriving at Los Gatos and thinking “wait... did I miss it?” That’s not the only thing wrong with your website, but start here. Look Turkish airlines is wonderful, I’m just saying that it was hell actually buying a ticket and signing up for your rewards program."
Pros: "The flight attendants are always helpful and very nice!"
Cons: "I have been flying Turkish Air quite a bit since 2011. I have noticed that on some shorter flights they are using newer planes with a bit more leg room, but on their longer flights (Like the one I take quite a bit from Los Angeles-Istanbul) they are using older planes that are horrific for anyone over 6' tall. I can't even sit in the seat without my legs jamming against the seat in front of me, and when the recline, I have to sit sideways. They are also very small sideways. I am a big guy, but not overweight, and barely fit in the seats. Their seats are definitely getting worse since I started and they ended their economy plus seat option, which at least gave you an option, for a couple hundred dollars more, you could have a nice seat. This is of course to make more money and jam more people on their planes without caring at all for the passengers comfort when you are flying, and it makes those long 12-14 hour flights miserable! Also, the planes are very hot when you board, which can be very uncomfortable, and they no longer give you a hot towel (As they used to) until the plane has taken off. They also do not serve a 1st beverage right away after take off (10,000'). Your first beverage is with the first meal, and then you are not served anything again until the second meal, whereas most other airlines serve drinks throughout the flight. SO you fly for 12 hours with 2 service times and no offers of drinks, snacks, etc. during the flight."
Cons: "Screaming babies"
Cons: "Reaction of crew to passengers call needed improvement."
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"
Pros: "All the staff was polit"
Cons: "We r a family of 5 and we did not seat together this Waht bothers the most of the trip that they couldn't put us together"
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion."
Cons: "However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality"
Pros: "Everything was great. Service. Very comfortable. The staff was great"
Pros: "Crew, food, beverages, and entertainment were very good."
Cons: "Flight from JFK was delayed, and as a result we've lost our luggage. Unfortunately, Turkish airlines has no delivery service at Kharkiv, which is absolutely inconvenient."
Pros: "The seats were okay and entertainment was okay. But other than that -"
Cons: "Don't sit in row 27. You will be the last people on the plane served...unfortunately that means that the row behind gets food about 45 min before you do. And overall - it took about 4 hours to get our first meal."
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Pros: "Ozan was a perfect attendant. Always asked us how we were and helped us when we needed anything."
Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Cons: "I t would have been much better to have a faster check in process"
Pros: "Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew."
Cons: "The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017."
Cons: "Very poor experience , no clear gate assignment prior to boarding , i missed this flight due to no gate info poping on the monitors. Bad customer experience , No manners no proper English, By Far the worst experience."
Pros: "Price, Price, Price"
Cons: "Keep going KAyak"
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"
Pros: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "You dont have your own air vent and regardless of how much money they make from your ticket, they try to conserve in air. Asked multiple times because myself and everyone around me were fanning themselves off, staff didn't care and temperature didn't change."
Pros: "Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable."
Cons: "Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Comfortable, nice amenities. Staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Did not like the carry on being based on weight instead of size. Also did not like that there was not a self check in kiosk."
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
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."
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: "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: "overall the flight was good. but it is unbelievable that someone else sat on my seat and the crew could not sort it out."
Cons: "the ground handling was not good."
Pros: "Aircraft, aircraft crew ,"
Cons: "Boarding desk , online offers , offers with clear explanations"
Pros: "Crew was great and so was the seats’ comfort."
Cons: "Honestly I didn’t find anything missing that any economy class passenger could get... I flew with Etihad before as well and I just love them..."
Pros: "Horrible , in-humans"
Pros: "Crew was amazing good friendly and seats was also very comfortable"
Cons: "The airline should make food better to make travelers satisfied thanks"
Pros: "Crew were very caring and helpful."
Cons: "Bégaye were lost."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "At check in"
Cons: "Bathroom s were dirty"
Pros: "The crew was terrible. The aircraft from AUH to bangalore was in bad condition. My seat would keep coming back if reclined, my neighbour’s seat wouldn’t recline."
Cons: "The airport in Abu Dhabi was a mess! There was zero organisation and etihad ground staff were not managing things either. My bag came back broken!"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Pros: "Literally didn’t like anything from boarding to touchdown"
Cons: "Nicer more helpful crew. More leg space. More air temperature control abs cleaner bathrooms"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable and on time arrival."
Cons: "Food servings timings, were not matched with the New York time zone."
Pros: "Yes seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Food needs to be better"
Pros: "Good news, the checking in process was so delayed as there were so many people, they made sure all who checked in, got on the plane, no hitches on the lugguages either. I got my lugguage in Singapore."
Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."
Cons: "Overall cabin is too cold"
Pros: "Punctuality of Eithad Airways,cooperative staff and smooth process"
Cons: "Checking of irrelevant documents"
Pros: "Plane was good, seats were spacious"
Cons: "Check in process was hectic"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Cons: "Boarding not good no line turebel"
Pros: "Did not submit my meal choice in time but got the meal of my choice anyway."
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 lovely"
Cons: "The food options were awful & limited - sometimes there wasn’t actually an option. The flight was so squished & packed and I was incredibly uncomfortable in my seat. The boarding took ages & we were also delayed."
Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."
Pros: "The business class lounge at Abu dabi the cabin crew"
Cons: "The cabin crew rudeness was unbearable"
Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"
Cons: "Terrible service, lost all my luggage with no recall on where"
Pros: "You know how it is. It's a long haul international flight and you're flying economy. NOTHING is ever good."
Cons: "Seats are super narrow, wifi did not work, food was quite poor."
Cons: "Food wasn't good"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous"
Cons: "Only one wheel chair was provided during the flight to NY"
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: "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."
Pros: "On our entire journey this leg had the friendliest crew. Surprisingly the A380 journeys had seats more cramped with poorer recline than this aircraft."
Cons: "The food definitely needs to improve. It is slipping back to the cliched term of 'airline food' Albeit extremely courteous and caring the crew seemed overwhelmed and understaffed for there were delays in providing drinks or a blanket (although they profusely apologised)"
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."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was horrible"
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "It's amazing flight ever Ghezlan the hostess she awesome and helpful with all the passengers I love her cause she's wonderful"
Pros: "A380 is great."
Cons: "The food was not so good."
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: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Small toilets, tighter seats"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, it was clean and prompt."
Cons: "More movie selection would be nice"
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
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: "Courtesy of employees"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The crew was incredible!!!!"
Cons: "The entertainment system needs to be turned on much earlier. Even before takeoff. Also it's stops way to early."
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
"Internet service very bad and there is no option to refund"
Pros: "Nothing at all!!"
Cons: "The staff needs to be helpful Extremely disgusting seats and trays. Filthy and smelly, full of stains. So disappointed! And no tv???!!!! For a 4.5 hour flight that’s brutal! The one big screen we were all supposed to share didn’t even work. Much much work needed"
Pros: "Everything was okay, except they have really bad transition from the two flights in the airport . And suitcase was delivered to me the next day, and was opened and a bag of 230$ was stolen"
Cons: "Don't steal people’ stuff"
Pros: "Helpful crew and flight was comfortable overall"
Cons: "food quality used to be better. Need to keep the quality up"
Pros: "All is ok Just one of my bag broke big time"
Cons: "Careful more for all luggage"
Cons: "My flight was great"
Pros: "Flight duratiom"
Cons: "Worn off aircrafts being used on this route. IFE could have been better."
Pros: "Seat comfy, entertainment program plenty, and hosting staff very friendly and professional. I particularly loved the prayer area in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Hot food is not great, and lacks the veggies essential to any healthy diet. Even the salad offered with the meals was not tasty."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly."
Pros: "The food was not up to the mark. The sandwich was not good. Even the juice was not kept in the cooler felt it was bad. TV was not working Food tray was flakey."
Cons: "Seats have thin padding with vinyl covers like bus seats. Rather than serve snacks, they set the cart in front of the emergency exit (!!) and made it self-serve. Most of the people on the flight are from countries where people do not queue, so it was a scrum. I've done this flight three times in the past four months. The movies haven't changed AT ALL. I was seated next to two terrible, nasty little boys who were apparently flying unattended! Isn't there a policy for children traveling alone? More to the point, they were literally wrestling at 3 am and infuriating everyone within earshot, yet the crew did nothing. An omelette is not folded scrambled eggs. If you fly through Saudi Arabia, you have to claim your baggage, take a 20 minute BUS ride between terminals and then check your bags again. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Only good food"
Cons: "The seats were not good And the screen was not working all the flight to istabul on my wife’s seat (no entertainment)"
Cons: "The flight was postponed several times. and service at the plane was poor. It was a 12 hours flight and we was supposed to have one meal and a snack! Thank god I had some extra food for my kid."
Cons: "Non friendly staff"
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS SMOOTH AND ON TIME."
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "Very bad customer service Saudi Arabia"
Cons: "After 12 hours flying we landed ro go to the flight going to Cairo the staff at riyadh are main rude careless helpless not understanding what is maining long trip they treat my wife as maid"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Because I booked thru Kayak, Saudi would not allow internet access to my record. This meant my frequent flier info was not in my record and my seat was assigned at the airport. So instead of a seat near the front of guest class I was way in the back. SAUDIA is notorious for lots of children and babies on their flights. I had a 5 year old kicking my seat all the way, even after being asked to stop."
Pros: "The crew was very rude"
Pros: "Plane was good"
Pros: "Half of the plane was empty so I was able to sit anywhere and have the whole row to myself"
Cons: "Too many turbulence. Food was mediocre. Crew was professionally subpar."
Pros: "Im a 6'3 guy, so let room in economy class was very important. The economy class was very comfortable and spacious for a 12hr flight. The food was good and the customer service was top notch. No complaints. I would definitely fly Saudia Airlines again. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "The staff were very accommodating"
Cons: "Never was it mentioned that Saudi airlines has Islamic prayer rooms where people pray loudly at any time of night on this over night flight. I could not get any sleep with all the loud chanting."
Cons: "They Lost my luggage and we’re uncooperative about it"
Pros: "The crew were patient to everyone's requests. Food was more than sufficient."
Cons: "Seats were too small and space was tight."
Pros: "Spaces are huge you can relax and enjoy the wide sets"

Cons: "No head phones"
Pros: "Services was great, cordial staff"
Pros: "Overall, service was very good"
Cons: "there is no entertainment Also, regarding airport in Riyadh AUH make sure to verify your gate number. I don’t think they put it on boarding pass"
Pros: "It’s an amazing trip. Best of all having a place for worshipping"
Cons: "The WiFi never worked in most of my flight."
Pros: "Very nice and comfortable flight. Good crew, entertainment and food is good. The best best part they deducted a special space for prayer where you can’t find it on any other airline."
Pros: "It was not crowded. Found three seats across and was able to lie down and sleep"
Cons: "more international movie choices - too many Hollywood movies."
Cons: "Movie collection"
Pros: "Seat spaces."
Cons: "Entertainment was a bit disturbing because it keeps coming on and off."
Cons: "Mmmm.. let me see....perhaps ...well I can't think of anything..sry"
Cons: "All was well."
Pros: "The check-in staff were nice and accommodating. For a short flight we did get a box lunch which was filling."
Cons: "The plane has seen better days, paint was pealing off some places. The chairs were ok. The flight crew seemed annoyed at everyone."
Cons: "No headphones"
Pros: "Checking in was quick. In service was good."
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat or reserve a wheelchair online. I had to call. I also did not like the wheelchair service was not provided till the airplane door. I was dropped off at the gate."
Pros: "I would like to thank the staff of Saudia airlines at Dulles airport for helping me make my flight. I was late due to an accident on the highway and I didn't think that I was going to make my flight but the Manger was kind enough to call to the gate and tell them to hold the flight open and that I was coming. Also the TSA agent that rushed me through the line. The staff on the flight was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "I wish the headphones were handed out earlier during the flight."
