Not good

Great airline

The crew was very friendly and professional. The food was great. The check-in process took a long time, more than 20 minutes.

Best airline ever for economy

Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."

Cons: "The seat covers looked worn and dirty. Needs an upgrade."
Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"
Cons: "Having a reservation on Alaska for the first leg of the trip would have been nice. They didn't expect us, we had no confirmation number that Alaska recognized so we were denied boarding. How much else could have gone wrong?"

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, crew was very nice,"
Cons: "food is average. TV screens are so bad that you cant watch a full movie. Seat is comfortable. Over all the plane was old and worn out"

Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Pros: "The seat is good. Entertainment is good."
Cons: "Luggage was damaged. The partner airline was terrible. The crew was chaotic at serving food. A few has really bad attitude."
Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."
Pros: "Comfortable seats roomy 30kg allowance good a ttention form staff witohut fussing'"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."

Pros: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Polite crew took good care of my needs"

Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Pros: "Food was excellent, timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crew was not as friendly as I'm used to."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "To be able to bring luggage up to 30 kilo's"
Cons: "The TRICK of so-called 'auction' to buy an economy plus Seat . One may end up with a middle seat . Felt personally ' cheated' . Will not do this again"
Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."
Pros: "Service, food and staff were great."
Cons: "Aircraft was dated and in desperate need of a refurb"
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "New aircraft Airbus 350-900 - has lot of leg space even in economy class. Food was just OK, nothing special and far from what SQ used to serve to the passengers. I was very disappointed finding out that travel pack consists only toothbrush and tootpaste with socks included. No more slippers, eyes cover and no more other necessities for intercontinental flights ! What a shame for SQ to save the money on such important things for passengers. Staff was over indulging, someone would say - fake kindness shown ..."
Cons: "I didn't like the crew... They have to learn from Air Serbia staff and Turkish Airlines what is genuine kindness and politeness. And the most expensive aircompany should not be stingy and provide to passengers on intercontinental flights just toothbrush and socks in traveler pack !!! What a shame for SQ !"
Pros: "The flight was an hour shorter than i expected. The staff was around and attentive. I felt like i won the lottery with flights"
Cons: "Not one complaint"

I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was very cold so the cabin could have been warmer"
Pros: "Seat hard on older aircraft, needs new cushioning on seat"
Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."

Cons: "Being on the aisle it was hard to sleep with flight attendants and passengers constantly walking by"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Cons: "Boarding is an issue. Please have more staff in the early stages of boarding to make sure people go to the correct lines . It's not immediately obvious and leads to frustration . I wasn't too bothered as I worked it out quickly but I could hear many others expressing their frustration around me . I was disappointed in the movie selection. I wanted more new release movies to choose from . Cabin crew friendly and polite . Love the wine ! Put up with being cramped .. would love more leg room but overall very happy ! Thank You everyone involved !"
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "Nothing stood out. They do provide ear phone on the flight."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped and I'm only median built.."
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."

Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "Can't check in online with a VA per locator. You need an ANZ ONE. You have to call VA and forcefully ask for it. VA totally unhelpful. And when you get the ANZ number, they charge you to book a seat. Any seat."
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."

The wifi wasn’t working, waste of money. There was no space for carry in baggage, had to hold all the valuables and the carry in baggage was went to cargo

Cons: "I try to find kayak number to tell you that I couldn’t fly because I didn’t have COVID-19 test But I couldn’t find the The phone number that’s why I’m still in Amsterdam"

Cons: "Screen didn’t always work"
Cons: "Read the above. Completely incompetent and dishonest company"
Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Pros: "Good flight on A380. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "We had to disembark into buses because all gates were being used."
Pros: "Fabulous cabin crew. Found me celery sticks for my Bloody Mary."
Cons: "Ran out of second meal option pretty quickly."
Pros: "Traveling alone with a 1 year old the crew was fantastic. They gave me better seats with empty seats next to me. Helped entertain little one regularly on their own accord. Very friendly and helpful. Made a long exhausting more than trip doable"
Cons: "I didn’t like the airport in Dubai. Cleaners locked all the disabled toilets. I walked to 3 of them. Very difficult to use normal toilet and having to leave your baby & carry on outside when traveling alone!"
Pros: "Liked The service and the spacious airplanes"
Cons: "No choice left for dinner and would have loved a snack"
Cons: "They ran out of the selection for breakfast. The flight also departed late."
Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"
Pros: "The cabin’s atmosphere was great, food was on time i think and food and drinks were overflowing and tasted great."
Cons: "My LCD screen had a problem as i noticed that it was just mine that was having this blurring part like every 5 minutes so it was disrupting my concentration on the movie."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "Business class entertainment and comfort very good."
Cons: "Service was very bad. I had to get up to go get drinks and rarely saw the steward."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and the overall friendliness of the staff."
Cons: "During the boarding process, there was little control and it ended up becoming a mad rush involving all zones to just to get on the plane."
Pros: "more space"
Cons: "space"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"
Pros: "A380 was superb. Really enjoyed being on-board of that aircraft"
Cons: "Dubai - Cebu leg. They managed to lose my suitcase and my understanding is that was done since the flight was full. I would appreciate if they didn't leave my suitcase in Dubai."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "The food and care was great."
Pros: "Food was terrific. Service was great."
Pros: "The airline still runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is efficient and staff are courteous. Flights are on time and reliable. DXB airport is easy to navigate. New on-board headphones design is an improvement."
Cons: "Cost saving cuts are evident around every corner. No more night mask, flight socks and toothbrush. No more hot lemon towel upon boarding (only towards end of flight). Food tray is smaller and more compact than before, turns Dinner into a game of Tetris (although, not a fun 'game'). Flights aboard A380 are much more comfortable than in Boeing 777."
Pros: "A380 is great, roomy even for coach. Food is great as always."
Cons: "While most flight attendants are decent, a few are just not that great...making loud noises at the attendants compartments and chatting around while flyers are all sleeping, kick around garbages which makes loud noises too. Also the TV screen is a little hard to pull up at the front role."
Pros: "The flight was great. The seats were spacious and comfortable."
Pros: "everything was very good we had such a great time"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Entertainment was top notch. Wasn't bored"
Cons: "Food could be less processed / more drink service"
Pros: "The crew had such outstanding service!! Looking forward to fly Emirates again."
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Pros: "I liked everything particularly the spacious seats."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "There's nothing not to like"
Cons: "The whole experience is very good"

I would never book Etihad ever again.

Pros: "did not get the flight,because of no not given correct notice"
Cons: "don't know,flight missed..virgi s fault 100%"

Cons: "More leg room please. Better entertainment. More reclining of seats required. Softer seats."
Pros: "787 no one cannot love it"
Cons: "Maybe bigger seats with better privacy"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "At abudhabi there was no sitting available, while waiting for connecting flight, and saw people spitting in the airport lounge, it was unsanitary. Why ethihad donot enforce cleanliness in the lounge."
Cons: "Food choice for vegetarian meal was horrible."
Pros: "every thing from the new plane until arrive it was amazing"
Cons: "nothing every thing i like it"
Cons: "flight was overbooked had to stay in abu dhabi"

Pros: "Everything is fine and good"
Pros: "Cleanness + Friendly"
Cons: "Plane is little far way from terminals compare to Emirates flights"
Pros: "Stewardess and stewards were courteous"
Cons: "Long and laborious boarding in DC and Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"
Pros: "service"
Cons: "meals could be improved"
Pros: "Not much. Free shower at the airport was welcome."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi airport is poorly designed, crowded and confusing. For some bizarre reason, we had to exit the boarding area (we had arrived very early), and then re-enter at the end of a VERY long line, then dispose of the water we had bought AFTER we had already gone through one set of security checks, to have another bag search inside the boarding area. (???) For a 14 hour flight, you might expect a bit more in the line of amenities (like the Singapore Airlines pamper kit). It’s also nice to know on a long haul what you might be eating (a la Singapore Airlines menu card), but not on Etihad. Also the movies on offer through the entertainment system were a bit stale and dated. They also had no arrivals cards in English, and finding them at Sydney Airport is a nightmare. (Why do we still do the stupid things, anyway?) Then, to top it all off, after a tiring flight, Sydney Airport put on their best demonstration of appalling and confusing crowd control at the baggage carousels and getting through customs. Used to think Etihad was a quality experience, but it doesn’t seem so any more."
Pros: "Easy to cancel trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have technology to know about cancellation"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Unorganized lines for check in at JFK airport. Wheelchair was not provided, though it was requested before a month. Customer service rep didn’t try to call for a wheelchair."
Pros: "Entertainment system and flight condition"
Cons: "Rude on board female staff . Not one believed in smiling or using the word please. They all wanted to control the passengers with needless commands and orders"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Business class seat uncomfortable when made into bed. Crew appeared tired and overworked as time went by became inattentive Chaotic boarding and no information given about difficulties they were having. Lacking in food variety and minimal entertainment variety."
Pros: "Same as above great crew"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic long wait in bus"
Pros: "Decent plane Decent food Decent service"
Cons: "Abu Dhabi Airport Is The worst! Going through the transit area is hell. The wall of people extended out of the hall and up the stairs. Shear hell"
Cons: "Aircraft"
Pros: "Nice meals, good entertaintment, comfort sleep"
Pros: "The food was awesome. The staff was friendly and courteous. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "food and service."
Pros: "The flight was perfect the flight attendants was also up to scale thank you very much for the nice flight"
Cons: "The fly agency supposed to advise me a hotel inside the airport I asked to be inside the terminal so I had to cancel the booking in there and lose money because the hotel they advised me was outside the terminal not inside"
Cons: "They wouldn't print my boarding pass in time for me to make it back. The transfer desk at Kuwait airport is inefficient and I missed my flight home. I could not get a flight home without buying another flight. They refused to put me on the next flight out without me purchasing it. I will never fly them again. Now they don't want to reimburse me for my flight I missed without an $800 penalty. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The crew, the cleanliness, the food (lots of food and drink. It was nice to have the option to snack or not especially while traveling with a small child.)"
Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"
Cons: "Seats. Aurconditioning, entertainment"
Pros: "The flight itself was actually just fine- comfortable even in economy."
Cons: "My bag was delayed in Abu Dhabi. On its return, my laptop- that I had been forced to check- had been stolen... Not necessarily Etihad's fault, but so far their customer support has been almost non-existent."
Pros: "On time. Plane was clean. Security clearance was good."
Cons: "Food quantity and quality dropped to zero. Absolutely disappointed. I had travelled with etihad before. But this time I feel like not to travel with them again. In a 14 hour flight hardly one meal with 10 hour gap. Imagine if some one traveling with diabetic needs"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Pros: "Services n hospitality"
Cons: "Washroom maintenance can be better."
Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean and functioning"
Pros: "Liked the staff in the hotel and the official who accompanied me thru Abu Dhabi airport."
Cons: "Had to stay few hours in nearby airport hotel which was not up to the standard I hoped. The connection to other airlines ( for my new boarding pass) was very confusing. I had to get out of LAX to go to AA terminal for my connecting flight to SFO. Then again I had to take an airline transport bus to go to my desired gate."
Pros: "Staff in airport was very helpful. Lounge was nice."
Cons: "I did get to airport a little early and found Etihad staff did not arrive until 6pm. Might be nice to have a person or two available for early arrivers like myself."
Pros: "Crew comfort"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "All flights were on schedule and reached on time. I have got good price with Kayak. In Flight hygiene was good. Food was good."
Pros: "Both ways not consistent in time When flight delayed in Abu Dhabi they treat you like Specially Etihad airways service is very poor. . Never again"
Pros: "Not much to specify...."
Cons: "Entertainment is not available until 10 mins after take off and it gets cut off 10 mins before landing...."
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 micro-suites in business class provided ample room and privacy for a good, long sleep. The 11 hour flight passed by so quickly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seats, pillow"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "The email info The on board entertainment The food The delivery of luggage due to change of planes"
Cons: "3 hours delay without information Seat size Leg room"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight departure arrival"
Cons: "Food was of poor taste and quality on Etihad. Jet airways food good. Eye patch made of material that smelled strongly."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and presentable. Food good with real silver ware."
Cons: "I was charged $600 to postpone flight after I found out I needed a VISA to fly to India. Initially I was told the cost would be $100 ad then it ended being $600 for both me and my husband which I found outrageous. There should be something that flags you as soon as you book the flight that a VISA is required in order to fly to India."
Pros: "Food and service was great"
Cons: "My bags wwre the last two to arrive. And on a previous flight they didn't arrive at all, I had to go get it two days later. Baggage service need to drastically be improved"

My wife and I, along with many other passengers on this flight, were not seated together. When asking an agent for help we literally had our boarding passes tossed back at us saying we had the cheap tickets and we had to pay more to choose our seats. I get paying more to sit where I want but I should not have to pay more to sit with the people I booked with. With the amount of people trying to trade seats to sit with their partners it was obvious American Airlines split people up and they should not have. Terrible experience.

Pros: "Crew was great; super easy boarding process; flawless take off and landing."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was absolutely on time. Great!"
Cons: "The meal is always too spicy and for more south Asian style. I prefer more European meal."
Cons: "Understand sometimes out of airlines control but reduce delays"
Cons: "The 60 euro bagage fee for just checking 1 bag was excessive. There was no obvious way to pay on line or with the app"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and definitely enjoyed the selection of movies. Plus I was surprised with how much food and drinks were offered by this airline. It was great especially the ice cream treat."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable but to be expected on long flights."
Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"
Pros: "Seat super small, could not avoid touching other passengers, I am not obese."
Cons: "One toilet for 120 economy class passengers, no beverages served complimentary, even a glass of water cost you. Unbelievable cheap, crappy airline now, what a downfall for such a carrier."
Pros: "On toile."
Cons: "We logged 4.1 miles of walking in the airports because of gates and connection flights, baggage and customs."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "The crew, the seats, the food, the overall experiencience were amazing"
Cons: "Better headphones"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Pros: "Good service, entertainment screen were good. Food was good."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Daylight savings. Wrong time. Missed flight. $450 to rebook new one-way. What a nightmare!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats are too congested"
Pros: "Flight was very brief so not much to evaluate"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane but there was time to make up the lost time however it seemed no one was in charge. We were not even told of the problem until the flight was already 30 min late. Then there did not seem to be a plan to fix things. The flight was 1 hour and 15 min late meaning we miss our great connection."
Pros: "Due to weather, the flight took off an hour and a half late, but we landed at Heathrow only an hour behind. Cudos to the pilots for making up much needed time for many passengers."
Cons: "While waiting to board, they could have explained the reason for the delay much better. We stood in line for over 15 minutes beyond the initial time for boarding without reason."
Pros: "Short flight OK."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. They were aware that many of us had a connecting flight with not much time to get through passport control and to the gate. The crew should have let us off the plane first... we were sitting near the rear and only just made our flight"
Pros: "The captain made a very smooth landing in extremely poor conditions."
Cons: "Everything you don't get in business class. Since the flight was only 40 minutes, I put up with it."
Cons: "Missed my connection to Amsterdam in London because flight was delayed in New York. Flight from Amsterdam cancelled the night prior to departure. Rebooked on a flight that was highly inconvenient. No compensation from BA for stress, inconvenience and wasted time."
Pros: "Dinner Lunch Snacks Tea"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "I'm a tall guy so I always complain about the cramped seats."
Pros: "Nothing, nothing. At all."
Cons: "After hours at the gate, the flight was finally deemed cancelled. I missed my layover and was forced to stay over night at a airport hotel. I had paid a change fee to come home specifically for that day which I lost, not to mention 9 hours in the airport... the flights for the following day were totally downgraded from my original booking. Was so upset I could have cried...."
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "Crew were nice and helpful"
Pros: "Crew and aircraft are fantastic. ."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The boarding process could be better"
Cons: "The ground crew at check-in was not friendly nor helpful."
Pros: "Food was actually quite good"
Cons: "Issues with online purchase of extra baggage"
Cons: "The male crew in the bag is not try to help people put on the carry on language to the top of cabin. He stood there and look at us. When I directed to him and asked for help, he just stood there for few sec. and decieded to help me but with an attitude. Same as the other lady need their help to put the backpack in, both male crests stood there and wasn't planning to help, and the passenger stood up and assisted her."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "the staff was nice"
Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Cons: "Nothing served, not even water or tea, unless you pay for it. No entertainment."
Cons: "90 minutes delay for a 1 hour flight. They blamed the weather but no other flights were delayed except this one. Also, I purchased a seat with no checked baggage allowance and was NOT aware of this when I booked. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "The crew was very sweet. The flight was super short so it was comfortable enough for the short flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and a half. I had a 40 min delay with Alaska airlines 2 weeks ago and the min I arrived at my destination I had a text apologising for the delay. Along with a link to $100 credit with the airline. This is what real customer service is about. Not just empty apologies."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and attentive and I was mostly comfortable."
Cons: "I bought a return ticket for my daughter to fly to Amsterdam for the summer. I was allowed to purchase this flight from Kayak and BA from ATL to LON to AMS. Departure was for the end of May to the end of August. When we were checking in the attendant told us that the ticket was no good and we had to purchase another ticket because the travel was over 90 days. At no time did BA or Kayak let us know this information but had no problem selling us this ticket. We were literally extorted for another $1000.00 so she could depart. Shameful! Will not be using your site or BA ever again."
Pros: "Nothing, I never had the opportunity to board"
Cons: "We had a quick trip planned to the go to London traveling from Amsterdam with British Airways. We were able to check in without a problem, but getting through airport security took a substantial amount of time, which caused sever delays getting to the gate. Once at the gate, we were told that we could no longer board the plane as the gate had already closed. Even more shocking, the service people told use that our entire itinerary (AKA our return flight) was cancelled as a result of this. You can imagine our frustration as we had tickets in hand looking at the door to the plane that we would have been allowed to walk through had security taken 5 minutes less. In the states, if airport security is holding you from missing your flight, this is communicated with the airline and proper arrangements are made. Unfortunately, this was not the case, forcing us to buy a new (last minute) ticket and losing a lot of money."
Pros: "It was a short trip and the crew was good about making it as quick as possible (for boarding, debriefing, etc)."
Cons: "It was a short trip but they didn't have any sort of drink service. No entertainment either but that's expected for an hour long flight."
Pros: "There seemed to be more leg room then other international flights. They fed us 2 meals and a snack and kept bringing around juice and water."
Pros: "Courteous cabin crew"
Cons: "Delays both before takeoff and after landing. Unorganized boarding--what happened to the old idea of boarding from the back of the aircraft forward?? Making all passengers shuffle through a long queue is really stupid."
Cons: "delays, loud drunk in boarding area in Amsterdam that had been removed from his flight,"
Pros: "Even flight was delayed, all was well with excellent service."
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"
