Airline reviews

Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19 still waiting for refund ??"

Pros: "Efficient airline, friendly staff."
Cons: "Can't blame the airline but getting through terminals is time consuming in Abu Dhabi. Seats are small and hard but I felt excellent value for money."

Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."
Cons: "Again pyjama on business class will have equalised Qatar business class.Well done,otherwise,Etihad."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"

Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"

Pros: "Being time conscious"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."

Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."

Pros: "Crew tried to make the best of the situation. Food"
Cons: "How do you seat my wife, my 2 year old daughter and me all seperatly from each other and since our first flight from London refuse to change our seats for us. Knowing that we couldn’t choose our seats when checking in initially!!! We were not the only ones separated on this trip and we all had to sweet talk each other so we could swap and sit together. This makes the life of the crew so hard as it is not their fault and clearly many people were affected!! Lastly stop using small planes for your Brisbane flights!!!!!!! We pay good money and deserve better. This is not the first time"

Pros: "Everything, the staff were very friendly and helpful, food, flight and boarding was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."

Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"

Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"

Pros: "The new A380 was great"
Cons: "It was freezing cold Trays were left in front of passengers for too long Entertainment options were poor"

Pros: "SERVICE WAS PERFECT"
Cons: "FOOD WASN'T GOOD"

Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."

Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"

Pros: "As above"

Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"

Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "only served breakfast shortly after 8am take off .no other meal served.arrived Abu Dhabi 7pm. kept having to ask for drinks."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."

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

Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."

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"

Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."

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: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"

Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."

Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."

Pros: "excellent quiet A380 plane. Enjoyed the flight even in economy"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Wish there could be more options for the entertainment and given that it is 14 hour long flight, the meals could be given more frequently."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class, which was nice."
Cons: "Re food, I had salmon....it was very dry and tasted quite processed. There was no dessert, even in business class."

Pros: "That we arrived safely"
Cons: "The seat in the exit aisle was too upright and very uncomfortable. After paying for the exit row seat I expected a more comfortable chair. We were stuck in Abu Dhabi for nearly 2 hours on the runway waiting for take off even though all passengers boarded early."

Pros: "new aircraft"
Cons: "Poor selection of beverages, poor selection of entertainment(same package 5 weeks after our outbound flight) service very average, attitude of attendants very average."

Pros: "Seats where just roomy enough,let's face it,you can always use more room right. Staff was very friendly and attentive . I absolutely loved flying Etihad !"
Cons: "I would still like a roomier seat,again though, I think anybody would . I probably should have perchased first class,hmmm, should the whole plane be that comfortable?And not too much more cost . I say that would be wonderful !"

Pros: "Same like above"

Pros: "granted food voucher"
Cons: "movie selection poor. 3 hour delay"

Pros: "Interior design.Soft warm colours condisive to a relaxing vibe."
Cons: "Only one toilet available for a cabin full of people waiting in line for longer than comfort requires.Entertainment needs an uplift.Drab and dreary."

Pros: "Despite being a totally full flight, it was comfortable, with prompt food service and good entertainment options."
Cons: "- The crew member in our section was great, but two of the other crew were totally over it and were blunt and rude, both to passengers and to the other crew! - Etihad entertainment only available in the air, not gate-to-gate like other carriers such as Virgin Australia. - Rear toilets ran out of paper towels and seat liners in last few hours of flight. - Gluten-free meal options were substandard."

Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."

Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "They ran out of toilet paper 3/4 in. Disgusting."

Pros: "Service very good"
Cons: "Change in the inflight entertainment to more current programs and movies . Very poor limited choice . The toilet became out of use in the last hour of the flight . Very poor ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I buy a ticket through etihad website, I expect etihad service, even if it was operated by other airline. Air Serbia managed to loose my luggage on a direct flight between AD and Belgrade, and the plane was very old, without entertainment."

Pros: "Staff was accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Aircraft condition, smelly."

Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."

Pros: "Staff in business very attentive and friendly. Food and beverage choices very good. Presentation excellent. Staff in economy nice enough."
Cons: "In business on the 380- where has the massage option gone on the beds?? Those awful hot sandwiches served after breakfast in economy. Greasy, fatty and more like pastries. They have been serving them for years. I've spoken to tens of people and not found one who likes them! Toilets not checked very regularly for clean ups/ tidy ups and replenishments. Online duty free showing 'not available' but when they came around it was."

Pros: "The seat was really comfortable, food was alright."
Cons: "Staff, I've missed my snack when I was sleeping nobody awake me"

Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."
