Pros: "Waiting time was excellent. Boarding time incredible. People treated us in very good way. Good experience"
Cons: "Honestly, this trip worked very fine. I do not have additional recommendations."
Pros: "Nothing really, seats were to close to each other and it was a painful flight for 20 hrs"
Cons: "Leg-space between seats specifically when the person in front of you reclines"
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking dealt with poorly"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and food was very nice."
Cons: "Nothing I could think of"

Cons: "The crew are well organised"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"

Cons: "better food"
Cons: "We requested the wheelchair but it wasn’t provided"
Pros: "Excellent Service and most friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. But the food taste can be better"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "Aircraft was brand new -- very clean and everything worked well. All flights were on time. Crew was excellent -- very courteous and helpful. Overall -- very good."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "THE SEATS I REQUESTED DURING BOOKING DID NOT TRANSFER OVER TO QATAR AIRWAYS."
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "Flight services"
Cons: "We were supposed to fly on 04/04/18 but our Flight was cancelled due to technical problem"
Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"
Pros: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "The service and the food were amazing!"
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "I travel a lot and the employees were the best I have seen in over 20 years. I had special needs and they were very attentive."
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: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "Good timing only"
Pros: "Newer aircraft, good crew"
Cons: "Food was average. Poor movie selection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
The Etihad plane was small, 3 by 3 seating configuration. No screen on the back seat. Had to use phone to stream movies for free from their entertainment system. Food was ok. Just get 1 meal. Getting water or a drink is slow and the cabin crew take numerous time to respond to buzzer.
Service could be better. Not if it is because of covid or if it because Etihad is facing financial struggles but the overall journey was below average compared to other business class I have taken in past. I was comparing with Emirates which is much better service and plane quality.
Delayed flight, all passengers were made to wait for 40 minutes in a small pre boarding area without regard for social distancing, no one to organise boarding as a result of which there was a rush for boarding once the gates were open
Etihad keep cancelling their flight just by a email and without rescheduling. It happened to more than four times and every time I had to call them for rescheduling. Really bad reservation system.
Cons: "There was a delay of more than 1 hour."
Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Pros: "is nice flay"
Cons: "they are ok"
Pros: "Luxury and spacious toilets"
Cons: "Amount of food was not enough from Hong Kong to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "Quick boarding, minimum queues."
Cons: "Everything. What an absolute joke of an airline. 1) Flight attendant spilt a half a bottle of water on me and didn’t even apologise 2) Same tv shows and movies as 5 months ago. 3) no eye shades 4) entertainment turned off around 20-25 mins before landing and all headseats collected 5) staff"
Cons: "Quality of on board food and courtesy of flight attendants really needs improvement. Etihad wasn't like this a decade ago."
Cons: "Entertainment byTV with more new movies."
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."
Cons: "Disasterous! The flight departed 3 hours late because of some mechanical problem. So missed connections in Abu Dhabi, although Ethihad could have held a later connection to BKK for just about 20 minutes for us to board. The huge hassle getting lodging from the airline to take an onward flight the next day. Your staff would not accommodate us at the airport hotel so we could avoid the need to obtain a visa, which takes a minimum of 3 hours wait. We finally gave up on the visa and decided to just stay up overnight at the airport. That caused one kind Ethihad staff to finally make issues us an authorization for the hotel at the airport. We would never fly your airline again."
Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."
Pros: "Crew is friendly"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The flight itself was good when it eventually left."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was another Virgin flight leaving Launceston at the same time so the lounge was very busy. Our flight was late while the other was on time and there were no announcements that our flight was delayed. The screen over the gate also did not show our flight details at any stage, even when it eventually boarded.. I'm familiar with Launceston airport so it was okay, but for someone not familiar, especially an international visitor, it would have been confusing as to which flight was which especially as no announcement or visual display was given that our flight was running late."
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"
Cons: "Flight connection was delayed by 90 minutes."
Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"
Pros: "Every thing was good"
Pros: "I loved everything about the airline and the service provided except for one detail. The staff was great and very concerned with all passengers and their safety."
Cons: "Your average male isn't 150 lbs anymore. Seats are a little smaller than I experienced on previous trips. But still better than others."
Pros: "The crew were outstanding."
Cons: "They only had two choices of food: either vegetarian or chicken. The number of dishes were small as well. The “salad” was horrible."
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Pros: "Etihad is the best airlines by far nothing beats it from quality of the planes to the staff."
Cons: "The entertainment needs some improvement they need to work on the content."
Pros: "Great and very patient crew!"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic"
Cons: "I have never been to an airline which will not even give you a can of Diet Coke"
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: "Boarding process and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was horrible. First of all, we didn't get what we had requested. On top of it, whatever they had provided was substandard. Especially whatever they had given as sandwich."
Pros: "Crew members went above and beyond but they can only do so much with what they are provided with (food was horrible)"
Cons: "Food, Woren out seats."
Cons: "Awful crew it was. They were non co operative to us."
Pros: "The arrival time of the flight"
Cons: "Kids were crying most of the trip and the seats were so we couldnt sleep and when the food came they give you options hoping that you will choose what they got on their mind and they end up giving everyone the same type of food."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Flight got delayed without notice"
Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."
Pros: "Super short, but crowded flight."
Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and respectful I liked the entertainment and everything the sleeping kit and blankets they provided"
Cons: "I would've liked less condimented food options The plane was delayed for an hour and they didn't acknowledge it or apologize"
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Cons: "They served me wrong food, I ordered veg but when I opened it was non veg lol"
Pros: "Crew comfort"
Pros: "I am vegan and I got 3 out of 4 vegan meals. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats did not recline well. The crew was somewhat less communicative/engaging and one crew member was very military like."
Cons: "Every thing great"
Pros: "Just my seat. Which has more leg space."
Cons: "Food and I had to call them numerous times to give me something to eat because I was starving. For such a long flight they only had pop corns for snack. I missed my first served meal because I was sleeping for second one they didn't bother to ask me. When I asked for it I was given a cold sandwich."
Pros: "It was a good experience with Etihad airlines, comfortable and ambience."
Cons: "Food provided is not at all good. Very very poor."
Pros: "Seat was nice enough for coach. First flight did not have usb charging for phone / a big negative. Prescreening for US Customs in Abu Dhabi was excellent. Finished the flight and let right out into the airport terminal in San Francisco. A great investment."
Cons: "Food was MUCH worse than past Etihad flights. Entertainment was too thematic for the olympics - too many movies about sports. I ran out of things to watch, and, that rarely happens for me. Seems they're not paying for good films, or, their choices are off. Started feeling a little more like American Airlines, which I hate."
Cons: "Our flight was more than an hour late causing my father and I to miss our connecting flight. They had tickets ready for us when we got off our first flight. With very little explanation we now had to wait 5 hours for the next flight which ruined all our plans for our arrival destination. On the next flight my father and I were no longer sitting together and the plane ran out of food. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Business class seat was very comfortable, crew very friendly"
Pros: "Nothing to like, seats are cramped and worn out."
Cons: "No subtitles or closed captioning on movies or TV programs"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "No healthy food options"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"
Cons: "Business class should hv full flat beds"
Pros: "The entertainment kept the kids happy"
Cons: "The food- ran out of options- I’m not vegetarian but they had no options at all. The crew- not particularly engaged or attentive The drinks- poor selection, warm Our luggage came out damaged and the airline would accept no liability"
Pros: "The entertainment kept the kids happy"
Cons: "The food- ran out of options- I’m not vegetarian but they had no options at all. The crew- not particularly engaged or attentive The drinks- poor selection, warm"
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "Movies in the entertainment screen."
Cons: "At the boading, just when we were putting our luggage we were around 5 kg more, in a bad way the turkish lady there asked us to reduce or pay. We reduced the luggage and 2 kg more were left but her and her boss isisted in a rude way to pay or to remove more luggage. We asked her boss to help us in lifting one big bag since we were all girls and couldnt lift it but he refused to help as a gentleman would do and said quick quick put the bag quickly. For sure I wi never chose turkish airline again."
Cons: "The while tip was so bad"
Pros: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Siting in 15E seat next to a big man that was taking part of my seat Extremely uncomfortable Had to wait over a hour for the luggage Long and complicated transfer at Muscat, New airport toilets smell like ashtray"
Cons: "Space of between the seat roll is quite small."
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."
Cons: "The boarding was cancelled due to 5 hrs before visa arrival time and forcefully called no show."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food was a joke ! The trip wS expensive at 770$ !"
Pros: "Every thing was as per as mentioned g"
Cons: "So far good experience"
Pros: "Service, food, Cabin cleanliness, friendly service"
Pros: "Service was sufficient."
Cons: "We were told our luggage will be on the ramp but we had to wait at the luggage carousel. Our landing was very rough and alarming."
Cons: "Very delayed. Would not put us on a direct flight."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "The headphones didn't work"
Pros: "Straight to my destination"
Cons: "The worst food you could ever have in a expensive flight. Just pretzels and water. And the plane is really old & the chairs are really stiff that hearts the back"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less legroom than usual/expected. Crew was fine but wasn't too proactive and took quite a while to get things going regarding food/beverages."
Cons: "Everything, the plane, service, attitude"
Pros: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Nearly all staff very professional and trying to 'be the best'. Generous with drinks."
Cons: "Bizarre incident with FA over meal. I'm on left aisle of middle row of 3 seats. Another customer is on the other aisle. Middle seat empty. Both meal trolleys moving up aisles, ten seconds apart. FA leans over me and asks the man on the other aisle what he wants to eat and serves him. I'm busy putting netbook away so my tray table will be empty. FA 'forgets' to invite me to eat. This is an Arab airline???! In 49 years of air travel I have never seen such a thing. I sit there wondering what on earth is happening. Weeks later I'm still bewildered."
Pros: "Hospitality and efficiency."
Cons: "There could be a drinks trolley at the back to help yourself"
Cons: "What airline in 2017 requires you to present your credit card if booked using CC at time of bording, then takes 20 minutes to verify this? Oman air does. In addition, they called me to tell me my flight time changed and so decided to push the flight back one day, so they rebooked me. Then at airport was told i missed my flight...completely maddening and had to throw a fit before they finally booked us on the flight we were told by phone we had yet didnt seem to register in their systems."
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."
Pros: "Other than the smile of the crew i did not like anything. It was late at night and old AC . I really liked the massage in the business lounge."
Cons: "Old AC no entertainment no usb to charge phon. Seat old with manual recline and don't recline fully. Kept us business messengers waiting in the bus more than 15 minutes because of one late passenger."
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew, on time departure and ahead arriavel"
Cons: "Food was unexpected from Oman air."
Cons: "The seat was atrocious"
Pros: "I liked it when we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The seats are rediculously small and rather uncomfortable. It took way too long for us to be served beverages. And when I needed more water, no one was around to bring it. They delivered the food and then took ages to collect it once we were finished. The sound for the in flight entertainment was broken on my consol. There seemed to be a problem with the air flow: it was really hot on both flights."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were amazing! The airline was top notch!"
Cons: "When I finally got thru customs I picked up my bag and it was all wet. Something that smelt like vinegar was spilt on it. Also when my friend who I was traveling with picked up her luggage the plastic was ripped off. That must be some rough handling they have because this was a hard plastic suitcase.. They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."
Pros: "Most comfortable seats on the sector Lahore to Muscat, flat beds. Lounge arrangement at Muscat airport was very comfortable given that I had a long layover. Food served was mostly good and the attending crew were quite courteous!"
Cons: "No new movies on the entertainment system with limited choice."
Cons: "After boarding 3 passengers were made to disembark. This happens for different reasons. But the pilot refused to turn any ventilation. Cost savings? We were left to fan ourselves as the cabin overheated in the hot sun. No civilized airline can showe this sort of disregard for passenger comfort. After being tortured for an hour we finally got off the ground. Sorry, Oman Air, lots of room for improvement. I had a wonderful time in Oman and look forward to returning on Emirates."
Pros: "flight wasn't full"
Cons: "service for an international airline as very poor, rude and unfriendly from boarding to cabin crew on all four flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly"
Cons: "All the ground stewards are useless, customer service terrible! I tried to change my boarding pass to early flights back to bahrain, they cant do any thing but to tell me to relax and sit down! I missed 2 flights going to bahrain and they let me waited for 13hrs at the airport! Flying time from MCT to BAH only takes 1 1/2 hrs! their ground staff are super lazy for them to assist passenger are so so impossible to do!"
