The food could of been better

Too north airlines among all.

Flight from Singapore to EWR was too long.

My seat did not lean back. It was so uncomfortable. This needs to be checked prior to flight especially very long one.

Paid full SQ fare but return trip was on scoot and without any entertainment and no given choice for food.

Everything good accept food not good

The staff was great. The food really wasn’t good

Pros: "Crew , announcements were restful , not loud and blasting like some airlines"
Cons: "Nothing Singapore Airline is Super Lufthansa food lousy , late leaving Kuala Lumpur, missed our connection assigned to a later flight, running to catch rescheduled time and changed gate."
Pros: "okayish"
Cons: "Delay could be complimented by faster speed"
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"
Pros: "This was the most comfortable business class mid haul flight I've ever taken."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing went wrong."
Pros: "everything in suite class"
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "With Singapore Airlines the service is always good I actually paid extra to fly them after three weeks in India"
Cons: "Older plane with a fair amount of broken down details Plugs don’t all work, magazine pocket had rips, etc.... could be that they allocate resources to different markets"
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Great service and very very comfy"
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Service by the crew was great"
Cons: "Food in the economy class was not so great Options provided were not tasty. Each meal tasted same. No kid option available. Tastier options available on other major international flights."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
Pros: "Entertaiment"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "I loved the professionalism of the crew, and how they treat the passengers with such care. I prefer Singapore airlines over any other. Seats are very comfortable. This craft had touch screen monitors that worked well. I was able to use my own ear buds by pulling the jack out part way."
Cons: "I really only have one gripe. I wish there were more movie choices for adults that did not have foul language and immoral scenes."
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "clean aircraft and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "There was a passenger on the return flight who had the window shutter up during sleep time right across my row, and the cabin was so bright to sleep for me. I notified the crew but they were not keen on bothering the passenger"
Cons: "good"
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
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: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "Service, food and staff were great."
Cons: "Aircraft was dated and in desperate need of a refurb"
Pros: "everything!"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "On time departure and take off. Smooth landing."
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: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."
Pros: "1) New seats 2) Good IFE 3) Helpful crew"
Cons: "1) Cramped aisle 2) Toilet seems smaller than the older plane models 3) Boring food"

No refunds for flights that I could not take due to Covid restrictions

Pros: "Premium Economy had plenty of legroom. Food service was comparable to business class."
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Service and food choices. Seating and the mattress for bed."
Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Constant threats about weight of carryons & then didn’t check or weigh anything"
Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."

Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Technology viewing screens"
Cons: "Connecting flights from Charles Dr Gaulle airport to Heathrow airport"
Pros: "It was a short flight :)"
Cons: "- seat space is tiny, and I'm 6'2" - plane was full to the brim - in-seat TV was annoying: either you paid for something, or it kept turning on and showing advertising - engine noise was terrible. I needed to use noise-cancelling headphones just to hear myself think. - sat on the tarmac in SFO for 1/2 hour before takeoff"
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "entertainment, cleanliness, comfort"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
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: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Nothing"

Air in the middle rows seemed very weak(hot temps)

Drinks service was poor, food was cold

The crews are not friendly and not attentive. I was waiting for toilet for a sometime and the crews were distributing food. They passed me as I waited for the toilet and asked me if I want a pizza and a drink of my choice. I said yes, pizza and a water please and I am seated at Seat 17G. The crew noted and said will give me a pizza later at the seat but at the same time she passed me a glass of water as I still waited outside for toilet. My seats are not near to toilet and the air stewardess expected me to hold the glass of water while waiting for my turn outside of toilet clearly demonstrates a lack of common sense. I also indicated that I wanted the drink to be at the seat but she hurried away with the tray. My flight at Emirates was booked by KLM due to flight delay from Zurich to Amsterdam. In my original flight with KLM, I had clearly indicated and chosen vegetarian diet but such option was absent in the Emirates flight. There was a crying baby throughout the entire flight seated at the row of 17 at flight from Dubai to KL. The cabin crews did not do anything or try to control the situation with the crying baby which was already bad with parents who did not control the baby. We heard so many good reviews about Emirates and was excited to experience Emirates for the first time but it turned out to be a bad experience.

Food was very poor, seating capacity was poir

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: "Food could have been better"

Cons: "Handling and boarding at Schiphol was pathetic"
Pros: "The airplane The food"
Cons: "The time"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "I had really high expectations for this trip but they were unmet. The service was indifferent. The chair wasnuncomfortable. The aisle was super narrow. I was bumped the entire flight. I didn’t like the food. And it was obvious by the end of the trip the staff was just done. Leaving the plane I passed several attendants and they did not say anything. They didn’t thank me for my business. They did t say goodbye or encourage me to come again — they were oblivious and no caring."
Pros: "Good flight on A380. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "We had to disembark into buses because all gates were being used."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time !"
Pros: "Every things"
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!"
Cons: "The system delays before boarding the plane on 02/03. Otherwise the flight was pretty good."
Cons: "This flight did not happen. It was purchased fraudulently and was caught by Emirates. Please remember all my contact information from your website immediately."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Pros: "Attention to detail all the way"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible...it was connected for the first 2 hours only then got disconnected for the whole flight duration...I couldn’t watch any movie, tv show, music, live tv, and the crew tried to reset the screen several times with no success, then it worked again in the last hour...I travelled on business class and paid the extra charge for better service"
Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."
Cons: "restroom water not available, not so well maintained air hostess didnt come on after pressing help button seat overall bad experience and surprising from emirates"
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."
Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."
Pros: "more space"
Cons: "space"
Pros: "the movies"
Cons: "it was a delay on the way to dubai one hour and on the way back to kuwait 45 min"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "The FA that served my part of the cabin was polite, friendly, and cheerful."
Cons: "I had one piece of hand carried bag from when I boarded on the DC to Dubai leg. On this Dubai to Manila leg I was shocked to discover that the ground crew wanted all hand carried items weighed, and I mean ALL including things like travel pillows and duty free items. I was made to pay $88 for excess weight on the exact same bag I had with me on the first leg. Worse, the (I'm guessing) head of the ground crew gave random exceptions (for example someone had a thick copy of the Koran and some other item that were not weighed). My excess weight probably weighed less than that book. Many passengers ended up returning purchased duty free items and some even abandoned their bags. Upon getting past the initial gate the passengers were ferried by BUS to the plane. The bus ride took forever and of course, in the heat of the Dubai sun, the passengers were made to climb stairs carrying their "overweight" bags to board the plain."
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"
Pros: "All was good"
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: "-Airbus A380 from dubai to SFO and backforth was very pleasant and almost zero noise in cabin. However flight design is little awkward that it squeezed me, wife and our baby in bassinet seat. - We had opted for Asian veg food and was very tasty and was served hot all the time. - Many restrooms - Travel accessories - Great entertainment options."
Cons: "- Cabin crew were bit rude and didn't care much even though we had baby when flying from SFO to Dubai. - Restrooms are oddly placed inside flight. - Can improve on food menu and varieties and also wish there were more snacks to munch. - Boarding process need to much more organized."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Pros: "Crew is very accommodating and nice. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is horrible and the plane is unclean. Bathrooms need to be cleaned often on a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Solid service."
Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."
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: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food came before alcohol :)"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business"
Cons: "You did not consult me first and I was traveling with a friend"
Pros: "The Emirates flight was great. Everything was efficient. Crews were extremely nice and helpful. In flight entertainment was great."
Pros: "The crew had such outstanding service!! Looking forward to fly Emirates again."
Pros: "It was more comfortable than a US carrier's coach class, but ,8 hours in coach is still rough."
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The crews were very polite and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were excellent, but the storage and configuration below the Airbus equivalents."
Cons: "The dim sums could be changed for something else."
Pros: "Great crew and good food."
Cons: "Delayed departing."
Cons: "Leg room was poor. No entertainment"
Cons: "More leg room and space between seats is needed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "Some crew not attentive at all. Had to request a few times before service was provided. Seats comfortable enough."
Cons: "Some Crew a bit slack. And slow service"
Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."
Pros: "The legroom my seat had - It was near the exit and didn't have a seat in front of it. The flight was only half full which meant room for everyone to spread out."
Cons: "There was hardly any service. The flight left at 9:30pm. We were served dinner an hour later and given a bottled water. Then we never saw any of the attendants until 10 hours later. I had to hunt someone down in order to get some more water."
Cons: "The food was poor quality."
Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"
Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."
Pros: "Not a lot to like. Some flight attendants were nice. Others not so much."
Cons: "Filthy toilets at the beginning of the flight. If they were ever cleaned they didn’t get behind the toilet or the walls. The walls stained with something dripping. Paint peeling in toilet. No room at all. I am small and with seat in front pushed back I couldn’t move."
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. Could not have been more friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to provide great service. The food was great, especially the breakfast!"
Cons: "The coach seats were wide enough, but a couple of more inches leg room would have been better."
Pros: "Free entertainment when it actually worked."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized and confusing."
Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"
Pros: "Friendly, funny and personable staff. Make you feel very welcome."
Cons: "A couple of the stewards had really strong cologne."
Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."
Cons: "The entertaimnet headset socket was faulty and I had to hold the jack in a specific way so I could hear the vocal channels. Sometimes it just dropped out all together. Tried multiple headsets but having the socket and jack on the inside of the armrest where it was so easily knocked by you leg was so incredibly stupid and made it hard to get comfortable or move position in the seat. First time I've ever seen this on a plane. Ok, so Qantas got us there safely but the inflight movies its what makes it bearable."
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "The sitting arrangements was great"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."
Pros: "Speed of flight was excellent. Overheard storage was good."
Cons: "Seats impossible to sleep on as they don’t recline enough to stop head from falling forward. Wings on headrest too small."
Pros: "Both planes were clean service was good"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Great service, easy flight."
Cons: "I’m not sure whose fault it was but we arrived late in Brisbane which caused multiple flyers and myself to miss our flight to Perth. There was no one at the Brisbane airport that attempted to help us solve this problem. No one ushered us through long lines or anything and just told use that, ‘oh well, you’re just going to miss your flight.’ Highly disappointed and in similar circumstances at other airports and with different airlines, I have had much better experiences."
Pros: "Overall the flight was lovely. Flight crew was wonderful and I can’t say enough good things."
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The business class seats are average at best. The dinner service is good but not well coordinated. The cheese platter at dessert is really anticlimactic. I look forward to international biz class meals, but I want this to be better."
Pros: "On time departing and arriving.Flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing...was a great flight"
Cons: "my wife and i were subjected to very harsh treatment at check in...we were harassed over being 100 grams overweight on a check in bag...100 grams... both flying on a paid business class ticket."
Pros: "The land crew helped get us onto an earlier flight without hesitation."
Cons: "Not very comfortable at the back but we were late to board a different flight. The original seats we chose at booking we cancelled and we were left separated at time of checkin until the crew helped sort it"
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"
Pros: "I knew what to do without having been there before, thanks to electronic info available at my seat, in-flight announcements and signage at the airport."
Cons: "The kioks were a joke. I entered my details, it displayed both boarding passes but only printed one. Had repeat the process. The queue for checking in luggage was also terrible. No organisation what so ever. I waited in a queue that switched staff twice and when i got to the front i was advised that it was break time and she didn't know who was replacing her. I was called over by another staff member at a different queue. Another passenger jumped in. Someone then manned my original queue who called over the person that was originlally behind me. The passnger advised that I was first but the staff memeber rudely told me to wait. The other passenger insisted so I was finally served. Terrible and frustrating experience"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good seats. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Qantas seems to be notorious late. This flight was no exception. The food was terrible. They called it a pulled pork sandwich. Jikes. Very crowded"
Pros: "Crew wa very pleasant and willing to help"
Cons: "Old plane, food was average, luggage wasn't sent first as it usually is for business class and had to wait forever to pick it up"
Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."
Pros: "Nothing because this flight never happened."
Pros: "lovely stewards and stewardesses, most needed warm soft blankets"
Cons: "vegan food was awful and poor nutrition, cold, huge plane with light panels so high up in the ceiling that when and if you turned them on to read, it was bothersome and intrusive to others, poor choices of movies, few currents ones, seats, though leather, had been used too many times before me and were not comfortable, had to put my seat up so person behind me could eat aisles so small I could not walk and stretch if carts would being used, aisle handles don't raise so when my companions had to go to the bathroom, I had to ask the person in front of me to raise their seat!!?? Insufficient leg room better trip on my return mostly because of the plane, it was smaller and better seats..it was a 380"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my dietary needs. The vegetarian meals were all given out leaving nothing for me to eat. He spent the time and effort to prepare and bring me a meal from Business Class. 2 free checked bags is also a big plus."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline. You need to pay extra to be able to preselect your seat. The amount of leg room is atrociously small. The 15 kg. carry on weight limitation is a joke. There were too few bathrooms and one was out of commission to boot."
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions and that they supplied us with food for different parts of the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was delayed in the beginning of the flight"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"

Seating comfort, coordination by staff, food, punctuality and cleanliness were all excellent. Most of the flight crew staff were courteous except one or two which maybe considered as area for improvement.

Food could be better

I would never book Etihad ever again.

Service

Meal was not enough

Pros: "did not get the flight,because of no not given correct notice"
Cons: "don't know,flight missed..virgi s fault 100%"
Cons: "- The plane was set to a freezing temperature all the time made it really uncomfortable flight for most of the passengers. - Etihad mostly runs short of veggie food and passengers are asked to go for non veg option. Not cool."
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"
Pros: "Literally didn’t like anything from boarding to touchdown"
Cons: "Nicer more helpful crew. More leg space. More air temperature control abs cleaner bathrooms"
Pros: "..."
Cons: "....."
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets but it was not allowing me to check-in as well as seat selection online"
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
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: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Boarded by bus"
Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"
Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."
Pros: "I wish I could remember the fight attendant’s name - she was probably the best flight attendant I’ve ever had"
Cons: "Plane was very crowded as compared to the A380 I flew over on. also the meal services on the Trip over was much better than this return flight"
Pros: "Food service and seats"
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 air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "Nil"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding... The plane was adequate... The food was just barely okay. I was somewhat disappointed having read trip advisory and kayak recommendations on airlines prior to leaving."
Cons: "Flew over on Royal Jordanian Airlines. The plane was like new the food was fantastic and the staff was as well. On at the home the staff was outstanding but the rest was just okay. The return trip was not as good as the Royal Jordanian experience.."
Cons: "Someone broke lock of my luggage. It was locked when i checked in atJFK airport. I got the luggage without lock at New Delhi. Though there was nothing valuable in that but still someone tried to get something out of it."
Pros: "Nothing!! Bad food Bad seats Ride flight attendant Bad service!"
Cons: "Everything Flight attendant was very rude did not serve with any courtesy She took away my food plate while I was still eating!! without even asking g me if she could take it away. Did not serve me the full course of the meal ! This is the service they provided me in Business Class! Please teach your flight attendants proper etiquette towards its passengers the paying customers! I am very unhappy with the overall service!!"
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"
Pros: "Meals are served promptly and on a regular basis. Selection of entertainment is good but needs updating."
Cons: "Boarding was a chaos at the Abu Dhabi airport, they were just calling out for the Business Class and passengers who are disabled and those who are travelling with children to board first when everybody came to line up. Nobody from the ground staff even asked them to give way for those who are boarding first or announced what zone are they boarding next. Also, i used the mobile app to check in, i am definitely sure i chose an isle seat (you can see it on the seat map during online check in) but i was surprised to see that i got a window seat."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "No delay, arrived on time."
Cons: "Old aircraft, the bath room needed to be updated."
Pros: "Every thing is perfect"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Staff is rude and food was horrible"

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "staff were very courteous and attentive"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "very cramped in economy compared to other carriers from the region due to 3-4-3 on 777."
Cons: "They ran out of food (lamb and chicken) and served veg dish for both the main courses!!"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Despite being a totally full flight, it was comfortable, with prompt food service and good entertainment options."
Cons: "- The crew member in our section was great, but two of the other crew were totally over it and were blunt and rude, both to passengers and to the other crew! - Etihad entertainment only available in the air, not gate-to-gate like other carriers such as Virgin Australia. - Rear toilets ran out of paper towels and seat liners in last few hours of flight. - Gluten-free meal options were substandard."
Pros: "Crew are usually lovely and helpful with even the most difficult passengers."
Cons: "The food quality is sub par and the entertainment is not adequate compared to other Gulf airlines. I enjoy traveling and did not enjoy the quality of food and actually ran out of movies to watch on a 14 hr flight! I think their focus is on Business and First class. I like this airline so wish it wasn't so."
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "Coldest flight. Everyone was freezing. Whenever I asked a question, I felt the crew members didn't want to be there. My seat couldn't recline so I had to ask if I could move and the staff member seemed annoyed. Compared to other planes, there isn't enough room between seats."
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: "Just everything 100 times better than United and American, no snoby crew"
Pros: "The flight was on time"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Fell asleep at gate, missed flight, had to pay 540$ (40$ more than original tix) to get on next flight. Charged 200$ + for missing flight b/c they delayed!!!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Toilets were not working and toilet water over flowed and entered into the cabin - a dubious first!!! Check-in crew at Abu Dhabi was horrible. Add more Telugu movies for flights to Hyderabad."
