Pros: "crew was decent"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Love Etihad service"
Cons: "Snacks, i didn't want set meal"

Pros: "Overall satisfied."

Cons: "flight was overbooked had to stay in abu dhabi"

Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."

Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."

Pros: "Boarding in this time was quick, flight was delayed by almost 45 minutes but pilot made time and we were only 10 to 15 minutes late landing into Singapore. The only redeeming quality was the nice gentleman next to me who was helpful."
Cons: "Food was quite mediocre to be honest."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Crew is friendly"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"

Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."

Cons: "It’s an old flight with improper seats and seating arrangements ..flight has dull ambience.the food menu most of items were same as of my losangles abudhabi flight .."

Pros: "great plane, comfort, crew"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "As above"

Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."

Pros: "Fast track"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Plenty of spare seating. Cabin staff and crew very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was dreadful more than 50pc not working. Flight tracker not working. Back of end rear cabin seats some were loose. Dreading return legs of trip."

Pros: "They didn't let me n my sister fly. Plus they took 3 hours to give our bags back."
Cons: "The attitude of the airline n everyone was poor. No help nothing from anyone."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."

Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con"

Pros: "Same good entertainment. Flight left and landed on time. Breakfast was enjoyable but they had ran out of options so I didn’t get a choice, but still enjoyed what I got (banana bread)"
Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."

Pros: "Great all round experience - good flight, nice plane, comfortable and well equiped with lovely staff."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Having two seated aisle was fantastic for me and my partner because it meant we didn't feel like we were disturbing anyone if we wanted to get up and go to the bathroom and have a stretch. The chairs and leg room was okay, much better than our previous flight. You are fed lots of food so you never go hungry and the entertainment was good. Having USB ports to charge your phone or other devices is fantastic."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "staff were great"
Cons: "a little bit of a late departure"

Cons: "I had one piece of checkin baggage. surprise surprise it was misplaced and finally delivered to my house, 10 hours after my arrival to the destination"

Cons: "They switched off the entertainment 50 hours before landing"

Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."

Pros: "The leg room on the economy seats is good"
Cons: "The entertainment options are not enough"

Pros: "No waiting time for boarding Arrived on time Cleanliness New aircraft Entertainment package"
Cons: "Only 1 of the menus was available (lamb) since they run out of chicken and pasta when over half of the passengers where already to be served Crew needs to smile"

Pros: "The food and the entertainment."
Cons: "The information desk had a terrible attitude towards me - the customer, and when I tried to explain to them how disrespectful they were being they continued to disrespect me once again. Also, the worker at the counter was lazy and wouldn't do his required job. Also, the new update towards the tv makes it harder for me to pause the movie I am watching or to finish the movie altogether."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly!! People are very friendly and staff were amazing!"
Cons: "Can't fault it!!"

Cons: "they have a uncomfortable seats in a long flights and comfortable seats in short flights like Abo Dhabi - Bahrain"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"

Pros: "The trip was very comfortable . The boing 787 was a new plane and economy had a very good leg space The 3 3 3 seating is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."

Cons: "they didn't provide wine service"

Cons: "This plane was quite noisy. Noise cancelling earphones helped but it was noticeably different to the next flight with air Berlin. That cabin was significantly quieter."

Cons: "The seats on the 777-333 model in economy class are the WORST I have ever experienced. Extensive neck and back paid from cramped and poorly designed seats. You are going to start losing passengers, including this one who will switch airlines. A glass of wine was so cheap and acidic I found myself running to the bathroom within 15 minutes. The food was horrible. Goodbye Etihad--I can do better."

Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"

Pros: "staff were very courteous and attentive"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."

Cons: "not a choice of Indian movies;"

Pros: "on time & Friendly hosts."
Cons: "I paid for extra space seats & what I get is seats smaller thane some of the regular economy seats, Entertainment earphone was bad effect voice quality, food was tastles."

Pros: "nothing"

Cons: "The flight attendants didn't ask me if I need ice cream or any drink but they asked another seat of passages. It's not fair..."

Pros: "The Malaysia Airlines crew hospitality is world wide known and I experienced it myself during this flight"
Cons: "I sit in 2K of A350-900. Though it is known as a throne seat, there is an error on the installation of this seat. The foot rest that comes up and supposedly joined with the ottoman to make up the flat bed is too long so this seat never can actually go to full 180 degree mode."
