A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"

Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"
Cons: "would like regular water bottles to be available for drinking"
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home!

Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me.

Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."

Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained. The eye masks were cool - reversible with writing to do not disturb or wake for food."

Pros: "is nice flay"
Cons: "they are ok"

By the time I had check in and pass through passport control and security it was just 20 minutes until flight departure time"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice enough."
Cons: "1. On FCO-AUH route, my son’s entertainment system did not work. We informed the flight attendant and she said it has to be reset but did not come back to do something about it. 2. On AUH-MLA route, my entertainment system is so unresponsive. The touch screen does not work, so I had to use the manual controls. 3. Repetitive advertisements 4. Movies are old, not updated. 5. Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "Crew are great. Food good. Entertainment selection pretty good."
Cons: "I don't know why but on all Etihad flights I've been on so far (4), I found the seats very uncomfortable. There seems to be no padding on them and hence they are uncomfortable especially on long haul flights."
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."
Pros: "Great cabin staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Entertainment was unwatchable. In physical pain from poor seating."

Cons: "Service was a bit average. Attendants bumping into you... no apologies"
Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"
Pros: "My seat had a problem initially it was not reclining once they fixed that later the seat got deflated. It became unbearable to seat. The crew tried fixing it for about 30 mins and they then they changed my seat. Ideally I would want refund for the flight as my experience was extremely bad"
Cons: "Crew was not at curtious they were busy among themselves. It would take them long to respond to the call."
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"
Cons: "Small seats-space limited."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"
Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"
Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
Pros: "The service onboard was great, the crew were attentive and looked after the passengers."
Cons: "The Boeing plane had very restrictive movement while seated. It was especially difficult when eating on the plane you could not cut your food due to the space restriction with fellow passengers."
Cons: "Food can be better (and has been in the past). Limited choice in entertainment. Crew could be more polite"
Pros: "Was not rendered the service inspite of being charged"
Cons: "Custormer services"
Pros: "I purchased a premium seat, and I still felt as though I was being packed into a sardine can. Furthermore, the online seat map used to purchase my preferred seat did not match the seating arrangement of the actual aircraft, which was TREMENDOUSLY disappointing."
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"
Cons: "only one meal served on flight Manchester to Dubai, had to ask many times to get drinks."
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks offered often and tasted pretty decent."
Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."
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."
Cons: "Leg room not good"
Cons: "The cupcake served was eaten by some animal before opening. Have lodged complaint and may send them video."
Pros: "Entertainment good variety."
Cons: "Poor service this time. Been with Etihad many times, always been 1st class service. This time was poor. Came round once with food and drinks, followed by coffee later...not the usual standard."
Cons: "Salad that comes with Vegeterian meal."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Attitude of staff at check-in"
Pros: "Crew wonderful.N"
Cons: "None for now."
Pros: "The crew were outstanding - providing an excellent service, above and beyond what I expected. The First Office provided 5 updates during the 2.5 hour flight which were colourful and informative (ie not just blah blah announcements but a valued and interesting announcements) and the Cabin Service Manager was personalable and friendly. At the end of her flight she publicly thanked her staff for a good days work which I thought was very nice of her to acknowledge her staff like that. All round - a great flight made very easy with brilliant staff."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be better - it was 110% perfect already"
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Pros: "Staff were professional and courteous"
Cons: "This was an old plane. Seats not as comfortable, and entertainment system was lacklustre."
Pros: "All crews are kind, friendly and excellent services, the handling of missed flight is good."
Cons: "The plane is too old lots of things falling apart, toilet door, tv screen and its remote control ect .."
Cons: "No ability to secure seats online despite Aer Lingus stating on line that you can choose seats up to 72 hours prior to the fight. Terrible customer service cramped planes food not great! 72"
Cons: "The plane delayed by 30 minutes, I was rushed past security to wrong plane in Orlando, making me miss my flight, cue multiple times as the airlines "British Airways" and "American Airlines" bickered about who's fault it was. I'm still sat in Orlando waiting for my flight after losing my hotel in LA"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Nothing different from budget airlines nowadays apart from high price of flight, which is what it is all about really. Felt like a Ryanair flight for 4 or 5 times the price. Could have been SOMETHING complimentary to justify price."
Pros: "Super friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Short comfortable and smooth journey"
Pros: "Good legroom, comfortable seat and great entertainment to keep me occupied for the 10 plus hours."
Cons: "Security at Heathrow -slow!!!"
Pros: "they got me to LA"
Cons: "food and drink not served for 2 h ours / flight delayed 1hr 45 mins, no choice of meal it was a take it or leave it offer, ice lolly served 2 hours after food and horrid snack before landing - on a 10.5 hour flight not good enough, I will consider another airline next time I go. 3 trips a yr"
Pros: "The flight was not busy."
Cons: "Seat, Legroom."
Cons: "Once again BA lost my luggage from my connecting flight. Twice in a week and a half."
Pros: "Good crew; no more or less better seating than other airlines we have used to the UK."

Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Cons: "My mother needed assistance with the disable wheelchair and was given one but the staff that was meant to wheel her into the flight abandoned her and she almost missed her flight."
Cons: "Inept staff throughout at Heathrow. Sat on the plane for half an hour while they located someone ‘qualified to open the door’."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"
Pros: "Champagne and hot face clothes to greet us. Perks of Economy premium were lovely"
Cons: "Quality of movies was not A.+"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour from NICE and connection at Manchester was badly handled by BA and missed connection. With no refund or hotel or alternate flight offered. Total failure. Am now stuck. And very upset"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Arrived pm from manchester stayed in hotel at heathrow to fly out following day to Basel at 8am. BA would not check bag all way through. Seems they only do this at Gatwick. Poor service from Heathrow/BA"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight, only 35 minutes."
Cons: "You had to pay for your drinks and snacks on the plan."
Cons: "Love BA but very stand-offish and rude crew!"
Pros: "Crew happy and engaging, terminal 5 remains a very place to spend an hour or two."
Cons: "BA’s slide into low cost territory irks but less and less. People seem to accept buying food and rinks now and the mood always seems remarkably happy!"
Pros: "Nothing - even in so called Club Europe."
Cons: "Cheapness and shabbiness in every respect. A sad downward spiral for a once impressive airline."
Pros: "It was on American ticked through BA"
Pros: "Arriving in Paris"
Cons: "They have a fare that does not charge for Regular Bags....we booked it unknown toy us assuming we each could take a regular bag for no charge....well we have ended up paying an extra 400+ pounds for our bags to go each way to Paris and it has ruined our first time to Paris. The fare online was foreign to us and deceitful being from the US in every way. No one could even work with us or was willing to make a decision but everyone seemed to agree while still charging. No more British Airways Deceipt!"
Cons: "Some movies wouldn't run"
Pros: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."
Cons: "I paid extra charge for Seat 29C. It was not provided though requested several times. After a hot argument this was provided. Crew were not co-operative. Flight was delayed by three hours. Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."
Pros: "New plane. Good leg room. Good service overall."
Pros: "Polite staff professional"
Pros: "The flight was able to board early and arrive early. Very friendly service, enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Cons: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."
Pros: "It was a short but comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and movies"
Pros: "As a British citizen living in the US, I have always rated the quality of the service BA has given"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Manchester to Heathrow by 30mins. OK understandable. On arrival to Heathrow we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half as apparently there was not enough staff to connect the plane to the gate.The computers to tell us where our connecting flights were down so they could not tell us which gate to go to. When we finally disembarked, I was not allowed to my gate despite it being in the same terminal and having 40 mins to go.I was directed to a BA desk to get another flight. After 15mins waiting here the staff were rude and announced they would be closing. I finally was directed to departures to be told the only option was the same time tomorrow."
Pros: "The website would not allow me to enter my passport details as I have PR status. As a result I could not select a seat of choice. it would be much better if PR details could be added when passport info is not accepted. The flight was fine"
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Cons: "- bad airplane - cramped - bad food and not even available on all legs"
Cons: "Poor legroom with large entertainment boxes taking up valuable space under the seat. Armrests do not lift all the way up - only go 45 degrees which is useless if sitting next to your partner and want some more room!"
Pros: "I was traveling by British airways flight BA271 on 13 December 2017. The plane is old but comfortable. I was looking for USB pots I can't find it. Helpful crew and flight comfortable and landing was perfect. British always need to improve. Thanks"
Cons: "Flight was too long to reach Las Vegas"
Cons: "I never actually was able to go because British airways canceled my flight the morning of."
