Pros: "The ANA crew were very sweet and accommodating"
Cons: "Very unhappy over the first leg. Nothing indicated it was a United Airline flight to be boarded at United Airline terminal in LAX.

Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Extra hour that takes to do this flight because we have to fly around Saudi Arabia....."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."
Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Overall ok. Wheel chair was.not available In Karachi and in Houston"
Cons: "Attention to special needs"
Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"
Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
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 and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."
Pros: "Comfort, entertainment, amenities"
Cons: "You have to improve the food service. The food tasted horrible. You have to circulate the beverage cart more often."

Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like but maybe that I wasn't in Business Class. Just joking!!!"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"
Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good choice of movies"
Cons: "Would have been nice to get offered beverages more often. Was hard to get water as much as I needed without disrupting my fellow seat mates."
Pros: "Emirates is my airline of choice. They do everything well."
Cons: "flight left very late. couldnt make up time on the way. had to struggle to make it to the connection."
Pros: "The crew was just fine."
Cons: "Checking on the cleanliness of the toilets frequently"
Cons: "In most cases i was so disappointed to be allowed only 1 lugage of 50lb while i was supposed to be allowed 2 50lb of bags,i had to pay 275$ for the extra luggage,very disappointed as i was not expect that to happen,you guys made me look ashamed infront of people as i had to borrow money to pay for"
Pros: "Crew was generally very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."
Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."
Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."
Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and crew uninterested"
Cons: "I like it"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."
Cons: "The food is not good. I chose chicken but unfortunately no chicken only small mashed potatoes and gravy and when I asked for another one the crew said no more chicken lol.So I skipped 1 meal"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Fast professional and courteous. The flight wasn’t full so there was plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval process is slower than normal. The airplane food was well, airplane food bland low quality."
Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade. Bit noisy down the back but not to bad with noise cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"
Pros: "The sitting is nice with good leg room"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I don’t like."
Cons: "Missed connection in Dubai due to late departure from DC."
Cons: "Being late and have 24 layover at Dubai . Am still at dubai"
Cons: "The flight fid not depart on time and therefore I missed the connecting flight. Had to spend a day in a hotel until the next connecting flight."

Cons: "No real complaints. Time went bye. . ."
Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."
Pros: "Very comfortable interiors and great food and drinks. Crew is also not a bunch of jerks."
Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."
Pros: "I liked most of the food service. Not breakfast."
Cons: "Cramped seating on 1st flight. High business class fares."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "There was a hair in my food. Seats 46a and 46b were very constricting, leaving it very uncomfortable for sitting."

Pros: "Almost $1400 value items were broken in my two fregile box/bag."
Pros: "Service is generally ok. Polite and ontime flight (infact ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The entertainment system is getting old and buggy. I have sat on United's international flights now and their systems is som much simpler but fast and responsive. They should try and change it to United's."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Less attention to my two kids"
Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, well mannered"
Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."
Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"
Cons: "Really small space. Airport crew was dismal. Boarding was more disorganized than in a poor African country and boarding is easy, I really don't understand"
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent. The entertainment system and seat amenities are top notch - large screen, great selections, power sources, remote control (cabled). I was so impressed I planned to join their frequent flyer program (*** but see review of second leg - Dubai to Manila *** )."
Cons: "Was served the wrong meal even though I double-checked with the FA."
Pros: "The boarding was good, I needed a wheelchair as I had a heel problem , this service was very well done, the staff were helpful and obliging on the flight"
Cons: "The food was disgusting, I chose to have gluten free, the breakfast was the worse food I have ever eaten, the eggs were like rubber to eat, the fish was the same and the chips were grey and soggy with saturated stale oil, the bread roll was stale, as a result I didn't eat the breakfast and the main meal wasn't much better, I feel if the food was much more simple , fresh , and the fruit ripe instead of green , the meal would have been more appealing ."
Pros: "The 380 is a great plane, the quiet and comfort."
Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."
Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly. Passengers were not even allowed to carry out a basic conversation near the restrooms at the back of the plane without being shushed left and right from cabin crew in their private quarters and other crew up the stairs."
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."
Cons: "Connection was too short and airport too big. I had to literally run through the terminal and my bags didn't make the flight. Window seats on A380 are too far from window to sleep comfortably."
Pros: "Very comfortable pod."
Pros: "I’m very disappointed by the supervisor treatment at the time I was checking in and weighing my luggage. It is very frustrating to see that I was forced to pay US$ 175 for an excess of only 9 Kg. Even after I told him that my other luggage didn’t have the maximum weight he insisted either to throw away my items or pay the amount. The supervisor was ready to either not let to board the flight or leave my luggage. I could have appreciated if either charged only extra 9kgs or move the excess volume to check in luggage that was not full. The supervisor was not ready to listen and he constantly treats me in a disrespectful manner. Given to the mistreatments I had I have vows not to travel with Emirates anymore and also advise my friends and colleagues not to use it. I hope you will use this feedback to improve your customers services."
Cons: "More regional movies for India"
Pros: "Everything was on time and the food and service was good."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."
Pros: "Beautiful, new plane. Amazing, elegant, classy, patient crew. Lot so of nice customer service touches."
Cons: "The food could have been a bit more exciting, but it was solid."
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"
Pros: "The crew was great. They were very quick to respond to any requests and were very accommodating."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was quite good"
Cons: "I was offered an earlier flight departing from London, which was good but was delayed in the end. But I was not told my connecting flight was changed too (new boarding pass not issued and I only realized from the baggage slip) - I had to pay 100 usd to change flights again!"
Pros: "Polite crew, good food"
Cons: "Newer plane on flight from HKG to sFo"
Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."
Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "seats could be more comfortable for long flights, better food choice"
Cons: "Flight was suspended I was not notified before I went to the airport"
Cons: "Seats unconfertabale"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very kind and helpful. I was very tired and was feeling a little under the weather. She checked in with me frequently throughout the flight to make sure I was well, brought me hot water to sip on, and just made sure I was as comfortable as possible. My regret is that I didn’t catch her name."

Pros: "Great food, great movie selection. Fast service. Unexpected full meal"
Pros: "Boarding crew were very helpful with the wheel chair requirement for my friend who was traveling with me."
Cons: "Crew was passive aggressive. The last thing I want is taking their aggression on me. For simple things such as asking for water and what not. She was like that with other passengers too. The baggage went missing. And I also puked right at the baggage claim for the food I ate in the flight. Over all I had bad experience. Food was bad too."
Cons: "The system was unsatisfied by me, they made my name wrong on The ticket and say that was a flaut to me and I have to bear the extra cost to onboard. I never use it and recommend everybody not to use it anymore."

Pros: "Great service and food as always. I sat in business class and the seats and tv entertainment center are so old now. Time for an upgrade"

Pros: "Boarding was orderly and efficient, the polar opposite of the mad rush that can sometimes happen when cabin crew don't take charge of the boarding order. Crew were courteous and multilingual. Leg room felt a bit better than average for an international flight. Food was very tasty. The inflight entertainment selection and screen quality was excellent."
Cons: "They managed to run out of the Western breakfast option (which I did not want anyway, but many British tourists had to make do with yoghurt and fruit due to unfamiliarity with congee). The entertainment system is controlled by touchscreen only. An elegant solution that is simple to keep clean, but you get tired of holding your arm up at eye level."
Pros: "Decent crew"
Cons: "Bad food"
Pros: "The head staff making sure that me and my 4 year old are well taking care off. Super nice staff"
Cons: "The security staff and their approach and way of communicating"

Cons: "Cramped seats."
Cons: "food was horrible. Please improve the quality and quantity."
Pros: "Hospitality was good. PRO was excellent."
Cons: "Jain Vegetarian Food was not satisfactory. It requires improvement."
Pros: "Quick boarding and very polite crew"
Cons: "The only issue was 30 minutes waiting in HK to take off and 30 mins circling Manila waiting to land....... both of which were neither an issue with CP."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "Being upgraded to premium economy was one of the best surprises ever in my life. Wide Seat and leg space, great food selection, baggages not misplaced, up to date email notification of flight status very much appreciated!!!"
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Pros: "Confort and service"
Pros: "Good food served Crew behaviour was nice peace full journey very meet and clean ,captain of the flight was experence person smooth flying,"
Cons: "Toothbrush and paste was not issued to Evonomy class persons,Whisky served was not having good quality & quantity ,Only few Hindi movie Videio was available,may give more Hindi Videio,Tea served was not hot."
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Jenny (flight attendant in my section) was great. She was constantly smiling and was always positive. Her attitude made the flight more enjoyable."
Pros: "Good, entertainment, staff were nice."
Cons: "Not much to complain about."
Pros: "My son enjoyed the flight and the worker where very nice to him."
Pros: "Typical Cathay"
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
Cons: "No seat assignment until at the airport, so my wife and I had to sit at separate rows, far away from each other for 15 hours. I will never buy from kayak again"
Pros: "This was the cheapest direct flight to Hong Kong so I bought it. Alsonivam a qantas member so got the points. It was a day trip for me to go so I wanted to get some sleep both ways. I'm 188cm and the seats are just a little bit close together to let you stretch your legs but ok. Entertainment system is good and window seat was ok."
Cons: "Meals are terrible - soft mushy potatoes and scrambled eggs need a revamp, device is s bit chuck it at you. Flight out was 1.15 hours late but suited me other people were put out."
Cons: "Seat can not be reclined, where it makes you slouch, very uncomfortable position. Meal time is rather odd, should be re schedule since we depart on early morning hour."
Cons: "Narrow seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and online entertainment system had a lot to offer. Online check-in does save time, it's a shorter queue & you just have to drop off your luggage."
Cons: "Eithad charges for seat selection now! Not seats with extra legroom or any other perks. But any seat in Economy if you select it 24 hours before departure, anywhere from $25 to $45. Seat selection is free if flight departure is less than 24 hours away but available seats are all random."
Cons: "Checking was slow at IAD and flight got delayed in Abu Dhabi and there was not good communication on delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed the services, the crew and the food and beverage"
Cons: "The WiFi services. I ordered the lite service for $4.95 and the 30 mb was finished in less that 10 minutes. Not sufficient"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "short lay over in Abudhabi. Flight was on time."
Cons: "At Abu Dhabi airport my mother had to change her plane , where assistance for elderly and wheel chair was extremely limited . Also the food on the plane was not as good as the food service on most international flights."
Cons: "We did order food vegetarian Jain but they didn’t provide that."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive to the needs of all, but especially to the senior citizens and families with small children."
Cons: "The assignment of seats for the Gold card members."
Cons: "Entertainment byTV with more new movies."
Pros: "Only 2nd leg- the crew was better"
Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"
Cons: "The on boarding staff was rude and unhelpful. The seats of the same ticket were not issued aside each other. The food is below mediocre compared to Emirates. Would take Emirates anytime over Ethihad moving forward."
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was good about the flight"
Pros: "My first meal offered a lamb and rice dish with carrots and currants that was most tasty, while the second meal included a nice vegetarian rice dish. They were both very good and a good introduction to the wonderful food of the Middle East."
Cons: "I had an issue with the sound on my entertainment unit that caused it to stop every time I paused a viewing. I had to exit then return to the show, which restarted where I paused it, but it was annoying. It also would have been nice to have a solitaire card game to play online. Overall, though, the variety was well thought out."
Cons: "Boarding smooth"
Pros: "Stewardess and stewards were courteous"
Cons: "Long and laborious boarding in DC and Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "The flight took off and landed on schedule"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was fantastic and nice. Flight was as comfortable as they could make it for the limited space. Food was great for airplane food. Entertainment was decent. Didn't try the wifi because I didn't need to."
Cons: "Would've been more inclined to use wifi if by time and not bytes."
Pros: "This was my second time flying with Etihad and the experience was excellent. Continue to provide excellent service to all customers regardless of where the sit"
Pros: "Staff was polite and curtious"
Pros: "Loved the inflight service and the airlines comfort."
Cons: "The carry on baggage policy of checking the size and weight of the luggage was very discomforting. Qatar did not check that kind of scrutiny of weights on our luggages."
Cons: "Overall bad experience with Etihad Airways flying from Dulles to Abu Dhabi. I won't be flying with them again. 1. ETA: I had to apply for an electronic travel authority (ETA) (essentially an electronic tourist visa) twice despite the fact that I had been granted the visa originally by the Government of Australia two weeks prior to my flight. For some reason, airline staff said they could not see the visa information attached to my passport. I showed them the emails from the Government of Australia stating that my application had been successful along with the relevant reference number. The staff told me to apply for another one and let them know once I had. They informed me that this "happened all the time" with their customers traveling to Australia. If it is happening "all the time," Etihad Airways should check their database to ensure there are no glitches. It's Australia, not a third-world country, so it's likely on the Airline's end. The crew did not offer to look up my reference number or otherwise do any leg work to verify the visa that I already had, even when the application page stated that I already had a visa for the relevant time period! This stressed me out just a few hours before I was supposed to take off and could have been handled with a little effort by the staff. 2. Baggage Weight: They are sticklers for baggage weight, weighing your carry-on both prior to check in (it must be under 7 kg) and again right before boarding the plane. Literally no other airline has done this in my entire experience except the cheapo ones. Thankfully, I had a big purse and was able to shift the baggage weight around to get on because they pulled me out of line to board the plane. It's all going on the same plane so it makes no sense at all. This needlessly drags out the boarding process. 3. Crew: They sat a man who was coughing incessantly on my row (I had two empty seats next to me). The crew member accompanied him to my aisle while he told me where he would sit. The crew did not ask me to make space or anything (of course I would have said yes), but this particular gentleman had a cough and made me sick for my trip. I was not happy, and that situation could have been handled so much better. Bottom Line: Do yourself a favor and fly with Emirates. They're far better and professional and are similarly priced. Had none of these issues with them. (Added bonus: the food's a lot better as well)."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, remarkably comfortable seating—every aspect of the trip was above my expectations"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "On the boarding time thy check you handcarry wait and on that time if you have extra wait they want to throw I don’t like that because on the counter if they check and tell you have exsis wait you have a option to give your extra stuff to your attendant but they give hard time to pas Sanger’s I really hait that sevice"
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."
Pros: "I liked all my special gluten free food!! It was very good!’"
Cons: "The crew just wasn’t all that friendly, and the seats were so close together, there was very little legroom!"
Pros: "Overall trip was fine but nothing to be thrilled about with it."
Cons: "-my longest flight was completely full and I was sitting between 2 good size men which was just not comfortable. -I asked if I can a seat swap but crew seems to not care much about it. -No snacks in between for a change. I asked for something to munch but there is nothing which they can offer. finally I had to ask for a fruit or something. I am sure nuts, crackers is something they will have on the flight. - they don't give out socks or toohbrush/paste or anything like that. no eye pad incase if you want to sleep peacefully. -crew was very frin"
Pros: "Good service. Excellent food"

Cons: "They don't even give you a can of Diet Coke or any ice even after requesting repeatedly Unbelievable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats more room for the legs."
Pros: "Nothing. I would never ever choose Etihad airline again"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."

Cons: "Etihad food used to be very good. Say no more. Now their menu is just like any other airline."
Pros: "Good in-flight service. professional crew."
Cons: "Extremely strict on carry-on baggage weight policy. I wish I knew about this policy before going to the airport. Ended up paying $110 more, having to move stuff from my carry on bags to checked in luggage."
Pros: "Nothing special old Aircraft"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than a hour & hand luggage asked us to handover at the time of boarding , very sad"
Pros: "Both ways not consistent in time When flight delayed in Abu Dhabi they treat you like Specially Etihad airways service is very poor. . Never again"
Pros: "The fact that the flights left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats were too uncomfortable, very hard and too small. The flight attendants were not very attentive. They did not make eye contact but when they did they were very nice, but with no eye contact it was not easy to get their attention."
Cons: "Vegetarian food not that good."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "Food was not up to par. It was quite dry. Like the curry served in vegetarian meal was very dry."
