Wouldn’t let us check our stroller and car seat at the gate
Cons: "More storage space in business"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "Wonderful trip, Super nice Crew , perfect meal , great entertainment system"
Cons: "Can not be topped up"
Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."
Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Security screening very slow"
Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."
Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"
Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
Pros: "Clockwork prompt"
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: "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: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"
Pros: "It was good"
Pros: "crews were helpful"
Cons: "nobody suggested me about $20 discount coupon card . I could have enjoyed my meal free while waiting in teansit."
Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
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"
Cons: "Seats were bit hard without proper head rest.entertainment kiosk was not working."
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Cons: "It is really good experience. All the flight attendants are good"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."
Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "My partner had a bad leg and the staff were very attentive and helpful in making her as comfortable as possible with extra pillows and getting ice for her ice pack."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep without getting a really stiff neck. The vegetarian oriental meal was bee hoon with vegetables but the amount of vegetables were a lot more than the bee hoon thus making the meal less than filling and satisfying."
Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Hot cabin. Chairs makes so much movement when the back of the chair where the folding table is moving. Chair movememt of the seatmeat is felt in the same rows of seats."
Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Cons: "Business cabin is not as good as the Air France one"
Pros: "The SIA crew is the most gentle and careful I have ever encountered."
Cons: "The food is below average. The quantity is OK but the choices/taste in not matching the best airlines."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "Food was exceptional"
Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "Comfortable, warm with food you could eat! What more could ask from standard economy class"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"
Pros: "Singapore airlines was awesome. I really enjoyed the hospitality of the cabin crew. They were very helpful and very eager to fill my needs. I will fly Singapore Airlines again without hesitation."
Cons: "Be more descriptive with which connecting flights we need to go on. We were not aware we we're supposed to get on Silk Air as one of our connecting flights, but we did eventually figure it out. It would really help to let us know your subsidiary companies."
Cons: "Horrible food snd mostly chicken or beef choice no seafood of veggie choice"
Pros: "I liked the food and the supplies given for the long trip, blanket, eye cover, toothbrush, etc."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."
Pros: "Excellent flights in all respects."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The people sitting near me were crazy and it was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Cons: "wait for baggage was way too long. Unacceptable."
Cons: "Cairo airport: Personnel have no manners. Rude, disdainful security staff who bark at passenges as if everyone is a criminal. Must be related to the Egyptian mindset. Dubai airport: Endless taxiing from aircraft to terminals, endless shuttle rides between terminals. You feel like a rat scuttling through underground tunnels and dismal byways through a wateland of darkness to be spat out at ugly, uninviting entrances somewhere in the bowels of Dubai International. No signs, no knowledgeable personnel to explain anything to you. No attempt at making travelers feel comfortable, no attempt at making the surroundings look pleasant. Must be the culture. The flight itself has wonderful staff, but the airport makes me not want to fly Emirates again!"
Pros: "Jumbo jet plane was fantastic."
Cons: "None for now"
Pros: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."
Cons: "I am lacto vegetarian but my only option was vegan. Second meal was a banana and some tired bits of pepper and carrot. Surely an airline like Emirates can offer a meat-free option!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, good entertainment selection"
Cons: "The boarding process by bus transfer in Dubai was quite long and convoluted. The food options were limited and overall low quality"
Pros: "Fast boarding, seating space ok for long legs, variety of entertainment, many food choices"
Cons: "Crew is way less friendly than before, many extras gone (wet towels before plane starts, no more offer for further drinks by crew), things are collected while halfway in air (blankets, earphones)"
Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade."
Pros: "Good vegetarian selection of good. Huge choice of entertainment. Friendly and polite crew."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "It was my first time flying again in ten years and my first time with emirates. I was expecting excellent standards and I´m very pleased to say I was not disappointed!"
Pros: "Service, atmosphere"
Pros: "I loved the food, wide selection of movies and more leg room. Even the luggage was better handled by this airline. For extra 20 pounds, you pay 50 dollars which is pretty reasonable..."
Cons: "Can’t complain about a thing."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "My third time with Emirates. This time on an Airbus A380 from Prague to Dubai. Simply put, wow! Everything about this aircraft and flight was outstanding, from the aircraft itself, to the crew to the in flight service and the comfort of the seat,"
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Really."
Pros: "The big tv on the seat backs."
Cons: "The seats were too close to each other."
Pros: "Nothing. It was worst."
Cons: "They bother me with my duty free gifts. You have to make some solutions"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."
Pros: "Cheap tickets. Airplane is A380. Good timeschedule. Good list of alcohol and drinks. Sky bar at the upper desk."
Cons: "I have maiden upgrade from economy to business and I can’t use Emirates business lounge. Stewards forgot my starter and drink. No cosmetics set - just 3 tubes of hand cream in toilet. Services was very slow. Emirates, is it you?! No more business class in Emirates."
Pros: "enjoyes my trip"
Pros: "spacious aisles, friendly stewardesses"
Cons: "4 hour delay and a missed connecting flight because of that delay."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Pros: "Great entertainment options, decent food, comfy seats with a lot of legroom"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing"
Pros: "- Attentive to infant needs"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Staff wasn't the friendliest. Waiting times on Dubai airport is way too long, the airport staff was rude, and not helpful at all. Unwilling to speak English. Can learn a lot from KLM. This was my first time flying with Emirates, will be the last."
Cons: "We couldn't take a flight for many reasons my wife she's pregnant and not allow to take a flight ,Your company didn't help us for changing our flight this moment so we lost our flight ,our trip,our money Thank you KAYAK"
Pros: "The experience as a whole was great!"
Cons: "My meal option wasn't available."
Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."
Pros: "Except the seats satisfied overall."
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together."
Pros: "travel was pleasant"
Pros: "The food was much better than on the Board of BKK-Dubai, as well the kindness of the crew."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"
Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew was helpful with stashing my carry-on bag given how full the overhead bins were. Courteous crew and good meal options."

Pros: "lovely crew"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
Pros: "The Crew was nice"
Pros: "Flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew, food and comfort. Taken out from flight no reason and harassed by land crew by not giving any flight for 24 hours with one baby and one child. No food offered for 8 hours. Not happy at all"
Cons: "My car was left in Dubai , & I am not sure when I will get it."
Cons: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."
Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."
Pros: "Crew was super kind and friendly. Food and beverages were good as well."
Cons: "Seat space in main cabin was a little cramped. The seats themselves were a little hard."
Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food isn’t tasty at all"
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: "Great entertainment, food, and crew."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Leg room was just ok."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Plane was very warm, but Very friendly crew, and flight was on time :)"
Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "The friendly crew, space for my legs and the food."
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was faulty."
Pros: "Everything was barely adequate. All the flights on this trip was substandard. Planes seemed old and dirty. Really disappointed."
Cons: "Barely made the connection."
Pros: "Entertainment and check in staff."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line. Was asked to pay for seat request on return flight. Passenger put seats as far as can go bashing into my knees (and I am average height. Not very tall), both 15-16 hour flights. It was awful and crew only insist chair is raised slightly for meals. none of my flights since joining frequent flyer were honoured scoring “0” points for flights from/back to US. Back to Delta I guess"
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: "warm food even on domestic flight"
Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Cons: "Way too cramp even for airplane standards. When food was served, it’d take at least 30 minutes for the flight attendants to collect rubbish, and since the seats are so small and I can’t keep the tray table open without pinching my spleen, it was really terrible. I paid extra for an aisle seat and was told there weren’t any."
Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."
Pros: "Outstanding service and a nice mid day snack."
Cons: "Ride a bit bumpy due to rain and cloud cover descending into Brisbane."
Pros: "Quick & friendly"
Cons: "Not given the right information. Almost missed connecting flight to Vancouver,because of waiting at the carrousel. For luggage that wasn't going to show up. Asked a security person about it. She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am. Then only to find out I'm to go from terminal 1 to 3. Had 10 min. together there and go threw customs. Ran with injured knee."
Pros: "Roomy, boarding was efficient, clean"
Cons: "some crew member favoring, service attitude"
Cons: "Did not receive breakfast and had a cup of coffee wanted a second cup and they said they had already shut everything down and we still had 1.5 hours before landing"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "very narrow seating. no snacks at back of plane no plug in for computer or cell phones. outdated plug in for headphones"
Pros: "Again, cabin crew is friendly and no last minute gate changes,"
Cons: "The food was gross, which could be a just a cultural difference in food tastes. There were no functioning USB charger ports on the return flight even though the ports were present. No wifi, which is a first. Most airlines I fly on these days always have some type of wifi. Lastly, the 'touch-screen' on the seat for entertainment barely worked. Buttons didn't work no matter how much you touched them. There was a delay and the selection of movies and tv were pathetic. I will not be flying Qantas again."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delayed no information"
Pros: "The A380 is pretty good for soaking up the typical bumps of air travel. This flight was the first where the lamding was so soft that the plane didn't jolt on landing. It made noise like we'd touched down, but the ground effect glide was perfectly choreographed by the crew. Nice job."
Cons: "There was an exceptionally narcissistic young man from China behind me who stood up and complaoned during rollout that he couldn't recline his seat. The crew suggested I relocate to a better seat. That was very nice and thougtful."
Pros: "on time friendly team comfy seats"
Cons: "Coach food is typically not good, but I've had a few coach experiences that were impressive. GOOD is a good rating for their good for coach."
Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."
Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."
Pros: "Thanks Qantas staff members. You all rock! I was seated next to a sick passager and I spoke to crew members from LA to Sydney. They were so understanding and told me to find an empty isle seat like I wanted!! They made my flight to Australia so comfortable! My veggies meals were all on time! Great experience with staff in domestic flights too!!. Flight from Gold Coast to Sydney was excellent. Great service, indeed !!!"
Pros: "Thank you for keeping track of our luggage throughout the massive delays and rebookings."
Cons: "Gate staff at all locations seemed stressed, under informed and overwhelmed."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "It was on time and very good service."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Cons: "Food: Japanese fried chicken was soggy. Economy space is cramped, and stuck next to a guy who invaded into my space and guy in front leant his seat back. Overnight flight but couldn't sleep when it was so cramped (when usually I can without problem on other flights)"
Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Cons: "our ESTA registration has been cancelled, our application for the US travel visa have been rejected. We would like to have refund"
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
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"
Cons: "the plane was small, old, not comfortable and not remotely up to the standards that we expect from Qantas or the A380s we typically get from CA to SYD. If I book Qantas - I expect a certain level of service - otherwise, I would save the money and just go with the cheapest airline."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very well organized. Crew is very friendly. Lots of little perks on the flight that many other companies don't provide."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "On both my flights, vegetarian wraps were served. They were really unappetising."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The chair is crazy small and tide was really not comfortable at all . I wish they could make it a little bit bigger"
Pros: "The seat 21A was absolutely horrid inducing claustrophobia due to limited space all around on a full flight long delayed on ground after taxiing for departure."
Cons: "Etihad needs to be more sensitive of passenger comfort and avoid being so stingy with economy class seats (21A)"
Pros: "The seat were nice & the staff more helpful than before"
Cons: "Food can be better Entertainment is not good at all, you are starting it after take off, which might take an hour, and closing it an hour before landing Which is something not nice at all"
Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."
Cons: "Again pyjama on business class will have equalised Qatar business class.Well done,otherwise,Etihad."
Pros: "The flight was amazing"
Cons: "The problem of the kids shouting and shouting one hour"
Pros: "Food was very bad so much salted"
Cons: "Make the food delicious not crabs"
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Cons: "Smaller leg room than other airlines"
Cons: "Food needs to get better."
Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive. Fight in both directions was smooth and very comfortable."
Cons: "In both directions, check in took forever and I was unable to check in online beforehand. The first flight, I waited 1.5 hr (perhaps that is the general experience from JFK) and in the other direction, at least 1 hr."
Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "The Crew do not give you the meal what you booked during reservation, what is the point in booking the meal prior if it is not served."
Pros: "Crew exceptionally great ."
Cons: "Abu Dhabhi airport."
Cons: "Etihad has gone downhill over the past few years and please consider this carrier as your last option for travel. They are simply not worth the money you save, considering the pain they make you sit through. Extremely poor service from the staff and they offer little to no option to you if the flight gets cancelled. They were not willing to accommodate my request to reroute to a new destination (which actually is cheaper than my original destination) as i was about to miss my consular appointment due to the flight cancellation and this was the only way I could make it. They outright said it's not possible, didn't even check if the flight to the new destination has availability or not. The staff especially at Heathrow is a joke, don't even bother reasoning with them."
Cons: "The staff at the Abu Dhabi airport."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Full flight with small seats with little leg room, uncomfortable on a long flight and, I am very petite! Old, dated movies Mediocre food"
Cons: "After I had run from one end of the airport to the other to go through customs and catch my connecting flight and boarded with 15 minutes to spare, I was pulled off by one of your officials and was not given a reason as to why. The flight attendants were talking about sweeping any areas of the plane that I had been in. It was when we had almost reached customs that I was informed that another passenger who was stuck in Customs had mentioned my name and that is why I was pulled off. So, I was treated like a criminal and questioned and threatened by the customs official who went and searched my belongings to see if I'm lying about what I brought with me. They then tried to get me to fly with the other passenger just because we knew each other, even though I clearly and repeatedly told them I am not traveling with that person. I suppose this isn't all Etihad's fault, but if you are pulling passengers off of your plane, don't ignore their questions and treat them like criminals. Also, when I got back on, the filght attendants were unsympathetic about my situation and smiled it off. It ruined my whole flying experience. Also, the buttons to adjust A/C and call flight attendants was really high up and hard to reach for a petite woman."
Cons: "only one meal served on flight Manchester to Dubai, had to ask many times to get drinks."
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!!"
Cons: "Ground agent at Melbourne manager says "sorry, you can't carry your CPAP machine. When I said that there were no questions when I carried it from NY to Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi to Melbourne two weeks ago, he says that the policy was changed last week. Gave a hell of a bad time but finally allowed. These people don't know the policies and just harass customers."
Cons: "My son was sleeping during the meal service, so the crew said that they will put his meal aside. After he woke up we went to the crew and was asking some food then they said that we don't have any option except some bread. The bread is very cold and the food was not at all good. After 3 hours my son was hungry and I went ahead to the crew and was asking some food. But the crews answer was we cannot provide food since we have only some boxes and if we give it to you then we may not have sufficient food left for everyone else. I asked them when is the next meal. They said in few minutes but it took one hour and that meal was also just bread. What kind of airline doesn't provide food for kids when they are hungry. I am very disappointed and I would not recommend Etihad airlines for anyone traveling with children as they won't provide you food when your kid is hungry. Our seat lights were not working and when you press assistance button the crew came after 15minutes."
Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"
Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"
Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"
Cons: "Food could have been spaced out more evenly during the flight. First meal came out like 3 or 4 hours into the flight, second meal came out like 8 or 9 hours after that"
Cons: "Seating was not so comfortable"
Cons: "We were asked to stand for boarding. And instead of having us board they boarded first class and handicapped people. I understand these people have the right to board first. However, if you know that you have more than 20 handicapped to board first do not have an entire zone of people stand for 40 minutes"
Pros: "In-flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Abu Dhabi airport was too small and we had to literally run through security check, US pre-clearance to get onto our flight."
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."
Cons: "This airline has gone downhill in customer service and food over the last three years. We will not travel with them again."
Pros: "The seats reclined in a better way giving more room. Crew were very happy, engaging and helpful to the Extra Mile when it came to kids and the older passengers. Always polite too."
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: "Loved business class!"
Pros: "The comfort and elegance of the plane and seats. The genuinely kind nature and attentiveness of the staff from ticketing to flight crew to landing."
Cons: "This is the last time to travel with etihad , very bad staff and not coorporated at all except for ( business and first class) Accordinh to my 2 experience with them they did not componsate me for the flight was missing because of their delay and the other one because checked in desc dont accept my bag even if i checked in and i have the boarding and they did this just to buy new ticket for 300 euros ? For nothing and waist time I gave them 0 out of 10"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as was the food and the aircraft itself. No complaints."

Pros: "Nothing much."
Pros: "The crew was great although clearly tired. They timed meals and darkness/light well given the time zone jumping and were consistently friendly despite drab conditions of such a long flight."
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Pros: "Support staff were extremely helpful at the airports crew worked hard to make sure everyone was looked after very enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Your airline lost my baggage. I missed my connecting flight in Paris to Bordeaux and had to pay 200 euros to get another flight. I am very disappointed"

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"
Pros: "One of the best experiences I have had. The plane was well appointed with large restrooms. The crew was very attentive and the flight was very smooth. Touch down was effortless. I would fly Ethiad again whenever possible."
Pros: "The crew especially in business class were rude to others. We had an infant and the crew had no milk. the food options for baby was bad."
Cons: "The crew especially in business class were rude to others. We had an infant and the crew had no milk. the food options for baby was bad."
