It was a very comfortable journey. Everything was good and should be maintained

Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."

Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"
Pros: "Amazing plane and crew!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."
Cons: "Flight was over too quickly."
Pros: "Courteous, Professional Crew. Amazing Service."
Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."
Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "Good service as usual."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."

Pros: "Average"
Cons: "Need more smiles and space"
Cons: "Your counter staff behavior at Hongkong airport.she altered our online booking confirmed seats??? Wheel chair did not come on time at Hongkong airport. We had to rush to catch the flight after demanding the boarding pass from counter.Please investigate and punish those two staff at your counter at Hongkong airport."
Pros: "Flight was pleasant, boarding was a tiny bit disorganized. They didn't use the groups for economy, perhaps because there was so many of us."

Malfunctioning plane made us late…annoying

Cons: "An excellent flight."
Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Cons: "A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound."

Cons: "The entertainment shows could be better as it was limited"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a great selection, leg space even in economy is big enough."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"
Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The space in the 380"
Pros: "I felt very pampered!"
Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"

Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"

Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Overall, Emirates is an incredible flying experience, we just got unlucky on this turn. The food is quite incredible, the entertainment bar-none the best and the amenities makes you feel like you're in business class."
Cons: "The flight had an overall 3 hour delay and they completely lost our luggage upon returning from Europe and to a wedding. That's worst case scenario."
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "No food at all, the same flight in the other direction had food."
Cons: "I found out that my payment was not verified as I arrived at the airport and I wasn't informed my email or any kind of way about it. It was a total disaster. Deeply disappointed. Regards"

Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."

Very bad thanks

Pros: "Timing immigration check in is good"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark. Didn’t get what is promised"
Pros: "Etihad crew are awesome. The A380 is the best plane in the skies"
Cons: "Free upgrade to business class? Because everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."
Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"
Pros: "Flight was punctual. A380 is a nice plane to fly on, but see other comments. Entertainment choices are good, but see other comments."
Cons: "On arrival at Sydney, discovered my bag damaged. The metal cage that holds the handle slider had been broken so they must have really thumped the bag. Re windows and cabin lighting. Flight left Abu Dhabi at 21:50, landed Sydney at 17:50 next day. The cabin was kept in darkness until 3pm Sydney time / 9am Abu Dhabi time. This only gave us 2 hours of daylight on Tuesday, terrible in trying to adjust to a new timezone!! Even going off Abu Dhabi time, why wait till 9am to turn on the lights and raise the windows? No-one sleeps that long and it creates too much darkness. Please turn on the lights and raise window shades a few hours earlier to help our body clocks adjust. The view of the world outside the window is also interesting! Re entertainment system: with some airlines you can use the entertainment system immediately on embarking but with Etihad you have to wait till airborne. Considering boarding begins an hour before departure, that is a long time to sit waiting without being able to use the entertainment system. Re comfort: I don't know why, but the Etihad A380 seats have this weird head rest on one side that can't be folded flat. I found it quite annoying. Also when you recline the seat, it also goes forward scrunching you towards the seat in front. I found the Emirates A380 seat a lot roomier and more comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great. Crew was very nice. Food good. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Seems like the plane needed to be retired compared to others. The tech was old."
Pros: "The flight attendants spoke English very well. They were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "I don't like the wait time for the empty food trays to be picked up. But this exist on every airlines."
Pros: "SERVICE WAS PERFECT"
Cons: "FOOD WASN'T GOOD"
Pros: "service"
Cons: "meals could be improved"
Pros: "I couldn't catch this flight because the previous connecting flight was canceled."
Cons: "Seat and space"
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"
Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "On the dreamliner flights they have tried to cram a ton of seats in so if your over 5'8 you'll be very cramped with your knees under the seats and a strange headrest jammed I to your shoulder. I fly about 20 or 30k miles a year in economy and this is easily the most uncomfortably designed seat I've been in. More over the staff was incredibly dismissive and rude to all I witnessed then keep a older woman waiting for 45 mins for water and then dismiss her when she asked a second time. The check in staff was no better."
Pros: "The flight from AMM to Abu Dhabi was excellent. Movie selection was excellent. Everything was excellent. The flight from Abu Dhabi to Muscat was so so. It might be due to the short duration."
Cons: "Movie selection, sound system, seat and window shades on the Jordan to Abu Dhabi flight."
Pros: "The neatness and entertainment system"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats more room for the legs."
Cons: "Staff saw us a burden. They need to accommodate the needs of family with children who might need food at odd times."
Pros: "Cleanness - friendly staff -"
Cons: "Landing."
Pros: "The service Chairs Entertaining screen Crew Food In my flight from cai to AUH EY 654 4AUG There's cabin crew guy I didn'tremmeber his name ,, he's really awesome and quite and polite and really want appriciate him He toke care of me because I was sick and he made everything for me to. Be comfort Thnx Etihad"
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: "I expected the same amenities that I had on the incoming flight, but it was not comparable for me. It was a different plane perhaps. Well, fine. But for an average woman to have the man next to me bodily impinging was beyond uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was in the center seat and I am not a large person. That this flight did not give me even the minimum body space. Perhaps it would make sense to offer a travel class where, in advance, one might choose a larger area but not as large as under business class. At least economy plus. Please!"
Cons: "The Food is bad."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and top of the line service and treatment! Excellent customer service."
Cons: "None!"
Pros: "Love, love the legroom in Economy. Much appreciated."
Cons: "Very comfortable. No complaints."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food was not good and too salty. And the saltiness made everyone thirsty and we were only offered one small cup of water at a time.Flight attendants were not friendly and didn't want to be bothered."
Pros: "I managed to find a MUCH cheaper deal through Kayak, cheaper than directly through the airline (£200 cheaper in fact!), which was a great start to the trip. I was emailed a confirmation that my booking had been accepted through the airline within minutes, and it was easy to workout how to check myself in. Then I had zero hassles on the flights, so I'm really pleased with the service. I was even lucky enough to have a whole row to myself on both of my flights from England to Australia, which on a +24hr flight can be an absolute godsend. Staff were all friendly even encouraging us to move to alternate seats given there was sufficient space. The air crafts were tidy and it was easy transitioning from each connecting flight. Absolutely no hassle at all."
Cons: "The only points were that the inflight entertainment from Manchester to Abu Dhabi was a tiny step below standard but great choice in terms of films to watch, my second flight was on an A380 so there was an obvious difference in design standard between the 2 planes making the first flight less desirable, and the food was OK at best. On one of my flights I didn't eat the heated meal, any sides and only ate some of the dessert given the flavour was quite poor. An airline could do to raise the taste bar standard."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Plane late"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Custumer care"
Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."
Pros: "Service is excellent But movie collection is very small Usually 5 regional Indian movies should be there. But only 1 or 2 regional movies r there No spicy snacks There are only bland snacks"
Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."
Cons: "Plane was not maintained at a comfortable temperature. It was just downright hot! But that was our experience with all our Etihad flights. Planes are not maintained at comfortable temperatures. Food was awful - boiled chicken taste While handing out sandwiches and drinks stewardess just gave my husband whatever I asked for without checking with him. Many times he was overlooked by the stewardesses on either side as he was in a middle seat. I did not see a single onboard crew crack a smile, robotic service. Not impressed with my first Etihad experience."
Cons: "When compared to etihad food is better, but when coming to entertainment etihad is way better. When coming to online checkin these guys had some server issues and I don't know how it's possible but some one was able to login to my checkin and ordered a wheelchair for me that was little embarrassing"
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Everything was great ... no complains"
Pros: "The cockpit crew was efficient in announcing the highlights of the flight.The landing and take off was smooth and flawless.The aircraft, an airbus 321 was clean."
Cons: "The service from Abudhabi to Cochin was worse than the so called cattle class.One simple instance, the food menu which was trumpeted and given to each passenger in the economy class, had three main entrees,viz Fish/chicken/vegetarian. When the food trolley came to my seat in the mid section of the plane, the hostess with almost a desperate look told me that only the vegetarian dish was available.I told her that I definetly need the fish or chicken dish.She scrounged around and ultimately gave me the fish choice whereas all the rest around me had to do with the vegetarian fare.Why this stupidity of a grandiose menu card?...The menu list states a list of liquor available in flight in the economy class.The hostess was serving the same only to those who specifically asked for it and that too as if she has to pay for the same.What a shame on the airline.You folks can do much better than this, in the so called cattle class.Sitting in a preassurised tube for more than 21 hours to reach ones destination is agony by itself, but then getting into your flight after seeing the goodies offered are only in paper, is a sad disappointment."
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "1. Food choices from NYC to Abu Dhabi were only lamb or Indian cuisine (chicken kofta or veg), no seafood option. Very few extras were given with the meal or between meals (no fruit, candy bars, peanuts, etc. on the flight). 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
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."
Pros: "Crew is friendly.."
Cons: "- Less space to store. - old entertaining systems, some audio port connections are not tested. seat1 and seat2 audio jacks are connected to same TV out."
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival was on time. Check in staff very helpful."
Cons: "Long flight and service was not that good."
Pros: "Service was great from the check in to walking off the planes."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Food can be better and limited access to WiFi (free) would be great. It was too expensive per flight."
Pros: "The crew on my recent flight desreves a five star applause. I've travelled on other airlines in the same segment and had come to accept the crew treatment to economy passengers. But Etihad changed that and showed me that we can be treated quite well even in an economy seat. Everything from them remembering my preferences to immediately honoring my requests to going out of the way to even reach ground staff about our preferences for our next flight, it simply was a great feeling to be on board."
Cons: "The check-in process was very strict in terms of weight of hand bags and cabin baggage. 7.6kg (600gm over) was not allowed to pass through - something other passengers need to be aware of. The attendedant who printed my boarding pass printed 2 copies of the same pass instead of one for each flight. I realized it only when it didn't scan at the security gate and had to go all the way back and stand in the security line all over again. Luckily we were not short of time for the flight else that might have been a problem."
