Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It is good airline"
Cons: "The flight was very late, the airline did nothing for the time we were waiting"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls."
Cons: "Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020."
Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"
Cons: "everything by alot"
Pros: "crew was decent"
Pros: "the staff was very helpful"

Cons: "Foord service poor overall"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Pros: "Etihad crew are awesome. The A380 is the best plane in the skies"
Cons: "Free upgrade to business class? Because everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Rushed boarding at ccj"
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: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
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."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."
Pros: "Main meal (Singapore noodles) was actually ok."
Cons: "The cabin crew had a very difficult time dealing with the annoying passengers, who were mainly tourists returning from Abu Dhabi. They had a tough job, but it was all very negative and stressful."
Pros: "The fact that I was not able to fly due to ethiad trying to make extra money was something I will Never forget"
Cons: "No airline has ever treated me this poorly. I hope this never happens ever again to anyone"
Cons: "The main meal was ok but that was it. If you can't do food to a standard them dint do it at all. A piece of fruit would have been better"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"
Cons: "Food served during dinner"
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."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
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: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Cons: "Poor service"
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: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Cons: "Crews attitudes"
Cons: "They moved my flight to later time on both ways."
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"
Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"

Cons: "Too many oversized cabin bags"
Pros: "Quick flight and boarding"
Pros: "It's like Air India the crew is old and cant serve the aircraft. Nothing I liked. Flight was very old. Waste if money."
Cons: "Change the aircraft. Give us new aircraft or at least inform passengers this is old aircraft so we don't book. Premium economy price was very high. No service. Entertainment tv 4inc which doesn't work. Seats uncomfortable. It's better to travel will Emirates.i have no words why did I travel in BA."
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "It was a bit warm"
Pros: "I travel 70 times a year and I try to avoid BA the f I can. This flight 2 hrs late and they ran out of food as hey got to me I’m tge back. The toilets ran out of water 3/4 of the way through the flight so people couldn’t use the toilets. Not good. Zz"
Pros: "Service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Thought I had purchased an optima coach, but was forced to pay $60 baggage fee. At checkin, asked for aisle seat, but agent had already assigned a middle seat. Then asked to change to an aisle seat, but she demanded $30 to change. Aftwr boarding was complete, there were at least 6 aisle seats empt"

Cons: "not applicable."
Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Seats and intertainment is bad"
Pros: "On time, standard flight for BA no frills airline."
Cons: "Not the best organised inflight service,"
Pros: "Everything was as you would expect from BA"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "My brand luggage was damaged during the flight. Although I still had to pay 65 pounds for the extra bag."
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Pros: "I left my laptop behind accidentally in the hand luggage space as I had to separate my hand luggage due to other seats nearby who boarded earlier used the space over my seating row. BA crew found my laptop and the swiss lost property retrieved it for me. Very thankful for their honesty"
Cons: "My seating was directly behind a curtain and partition to business class, therefore my seating space was very limited and squashed. No refreshments unless you paid??? why?? I would expect this from companies such as Easyjet or Virgin, but not BA. Even Qantas provided a light refreshment for short runs, say between Canberra and Sydney (Im an aussie)"
Pros: "On time, smooth and professional. Didn’t have food or entertainment so can’t rate those."
Cons: "I was travelling as a connection following a long haul flight from Australia and was desperate for a cuppa but had no money or English bank card and didn’t want to incur huge fees to use my Oz card so was disappointed there was no complimentary drinks."
Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."

Pros: "Service was really good"
Cons: "The seats for business class were economy seats but with the middle seat being a tray!! Expecting bigger seats with more leg room. Disappointed."
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."
Pros: "Good smooth journey"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"

Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"

The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
