Pros: "The seating, food, safety measures"
Cons: "You are best nothing to improve"
Pros: "Crew was better and helpful"
Pros: "Flight was half full, had the whole row to lie down and sleep in economy class, so had a really comfortable flight"
Pros: "Easy booking of flight"
Cons: "The gate changed in a Dubai without proper announcement, Ground staff should have visited the passengers waiting in the gate waiting area that was printed on boat pass and inform them to new gate. Instead they charged the passengers with no show fees and delayed departure for another 12 hours."
Pros: "The food was so good. The crew was so helpful too."
Cons: "The seats were tight and not so comfortable."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped. I paid $900 for my flight, and the seats were so on top of one another you could barely breath without touching another human. Just because other airlines do it ... doesn’t mean Emirates should."
Cons: "Thank you so much Emirates airline you are the best"
Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"
Pros: "Crew was very caring and seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t find anything that could have been better that what was there for my travel"
Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process lacked discipline"
Cons: "Emirates didn't allow me to get onto the plane with my 7 lb carry on because of weight issues in the plane. After bargaining few minutes, they were not convinced and only let me get onto the plane with my backpack."
Cons: "On each of my meals served the food was cold, and was actually ice cold in some places, some of the food served was inedible it was so bad. on a 16 hour flight the crew was mostly absent. Not once did they offer me s glass of water other than the little cups that came with the meal, nor did they come through the cabin to pick up trash. By the end of the flight the waste paper places in the bathrooms were overflowing at least in the bathroom I used."
Pros: "Comfortable A380"
Cons: "Borarding in Dubai inefficient."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time"
Cons: "Food could be better"

Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding process"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly"
Pros: "This is the most messed up money making strategy I have seen at airlines."
Pros: "Terrific food, not the same old stuff! Professional staff with a great attitude! A little extra legroom never hurts!"
Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Both ways there was no food of preference. Preferred juices are short. Especiallyif you are tired and want to sleep on their food serving time, you don't get any till next serving even if you are hungry. I woke and informed the team that I would collect later, but they claim empty and gave No way the entertainment is updated to the latest titles. Have 7/8 months old movies listed."
Cons: "Carry more food and screw sone new movies."
Pros: "Every one was very friendly"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Pros: "তথ্য দিয়ে সাহায্য করা কে আমি ধন্যবাদ জানাচ্ছি, প্রথম থেকে শেষ পর্যন্ত সাথে থাকার জন্য কৃতজ্ঞতা।"

Pros: "I've flown on Emirates multiple times now and I have had a great experience each time"
Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"
Cons: "The ICE screens can be larger and of better resolution."
Pros: "Liked the space & also entertainment."
Cons: "Food was not good at all. My 12 year old couldn't eat at all."
Cons: "Food was not very good. Lightly tested. The crew never came beside serving food"
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Cons: "The seats are small , its hard to move, sleep or to do anything For 15 hours flight you need a little bit more space. But everything else was great"
Pros: "Emirates flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bug in Kayak app cost me £60 through the flight not being confirmed and having to rebook. Be vary wary of the Kayak app."
Cons: "not upto the mark."
Pros: "The crew was very helpfully and nice"
Cons: "Other passengers and there dramas"
Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."
Pros: "Overall feeling on board, comfy seats and leg room, high standard of screen and remote control, free 2h wifi for all, quality of food and drinks"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly. On my first flight I wasn't even asked if I would like to drink something even though not sleeping and waiting to be asked (I think my complete line was forgotten), there was no smile and kindness, when entering the plane 2 people in front of me did not need to show their tickets so I put mine away - of course I had to show mine a 4th time then and look for it. So annoying. They all look pretty but could definitely be more service orientated."
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Cons: "The plain was late & communication by Emirates with the flyers was poor to non-existent."
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No lunch coupons or future flight discounts given"
Cons: "Unapologetic about causing so many subsequent delays"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice and friendly."
Qatar airlines is good to me. No complaints. Great service and great people
More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing
I liked the Crew . The food was terrible .I was starving. I couldn't eat the food.
More variety in the economy class food.
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing and food was good"
Cons: "Rest area could had been better"
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."

Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"

Pros: "amazing except for the entertainment system"
Cons: "Better entertainment system , 6 hours flight is tough without it"
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "The crew were nice and very helpful. Vegeterian meal was great"
Cons: "It was cold almost for everyone and everyone used blanket, some people asked for second blanket."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was only 1 hour after reaching Doha. They placed a crew member to receive all the passengers that needed to make that connection. Very very useful. Our luggage was made it to the short connection."
Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Pros: "In time me ,food ,clean"
Cons: "THE SEATS I REQUESTED DURING BOOKING DID NOT TRANSFER OVER TO QATAR AIRWAYS."
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."
Pros: "Food was better. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Cons: "Horrible customer service."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Pros: "The crew lead for Doha to Dhaka flight was very responsive and proactive. The food on this flight was very good."
Cons: "Air vent was not available for Business class between Doha and Dhaka; which made the temperature hotter than my liking."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "Great service. Easy. Comfortable."
Cons: "Only 2.5 meals in 16 hours!"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Crews and quality of food was great"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Cons: "I was sitting on seat no 15J. Head phone socket was not working. i cant charge my cell phone. It was 14hrs flight. It was very difficult for me to pass the time."
Pros: "Website and in-flight service is quite good. Flights take-off and land on time. The crew is international and quite professional."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment system is not quite good. The touch screen is not responsive and the movie selection is not very good. This is where Emirates excels."
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Pros: "I flew from LAX to Dhaka Dec 18th and had a great experience. Staff was very helpful -- I was given the opportunity to re-arrange my bags, to avoid a baggage fee. Excellent entertainment options. New and comfortable planes."
Cons: "Had a bit of a delay getting checked in at LAX, as they only have one counter, and weren't open when I first arrived."
Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "CREW WAS GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE"
Cons: "NO SEAT MONITOR WAS WORKING. ANNOUNCEMENT WAS TERRIBLE.SEAT WAS MUTILATED FOOT REST WAS NOT WORKING.OVER ALL VERY POOR SERVICE."
Pros: "Very professional !"
Cons: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."
Pros: "Yes. Very cooperative crew"
Cons: "Aircraft is worn out (Seats, interior, etc.). Could use some maintenance"
Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."
Pros: "The seat was somewhat comfortable. the inflight movie selection was far better than my flight between jfk and ist."
Cons: "The overall crew/staff need to learn to improve their behavior and attitude towards their passengers."
Cons: "The place was too narrow"
Pros: "Crew was very good and seat in long trip was comfortable"

Pros: "Lot of empty spaces"
Cons: "Lot of rubbish on the plane"
Pros: "They take great care of their customers"
Cons: "The crew on board was aloof, and somewhat rude. I was traveling with my 87 yr old mother and they did little to help, especially when we needed the restroom but they had the aisle blocked for most of the time, serving food. There was no way to get around to access the bathroom and the crew turned us away from the only available bathroom in the front. Really?! Not impressed at all. Also the flt was 30 minutes late making our connection tight. One of the young, gorgeous stewardesses was rude and dismissive of me when I asked about it."
Pros: "I love the food and service, thank you Turkish airlines, you are the best in the world"
Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it. WTF??????? give me my money back...."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."
Cons: "The crew did not seem interested at all; the food was mediocre and the headphones provided were broken and despitea repeated request to get new ones I did not get theme"
Pros: "The food, cabin crew behavior, entertainment systems were decent."
Cons: "1. Aweful legspace and overall space: I am 5'11'' and an average guy. It was like fitting myself into a cage. 2. Ground management is very bad. I felt that in both Boston and in Istanbul. They make people wait and the queue becomes long to adjust their delays. My flight from Istanbul to Dhaka was scheduled at 3:40 am. They started boarding passagers at around 3:10 am. Before that, they even bothered to show up at the boarding bridge, let alone informing people about their delay. The behavior of the groud crew was an embarrassment."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Lost baggage. Although promised to be delivered on the next day, it didn't happen. Still waiting for resolution of this issue."
Pros: "The flight was great. It was before the flight that was highly stressful"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Istanbul were terrible. No communication. Lots of anxiety and stress. Running through airports."
Pros: "The service, food, price and entertainment, little flight pack"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was ok."
Cons: "Seats some of the smallest. Staff inattentive. Pressed the attendant button 4 times. Every time ignored. Food provided was not what was on the menu provided. Boarding was a disaster. Over an hour in a terminal with lacking a/c. I want to say it was worth the price, but no. Was the worse flight I have ever been on."
Cons: "This flight had 10 hours layover at Istanbul. Air line did not provide no hotel. Definitely I would not recommend anyone to take this types of flights with long layover."
Pros: "Your crewsom"
Pros: "Food was very good. Free wifi"
Cons: "Check-in and boarding were chaotic and poorly organized. In-flight crew was not very courteous or friendly. Entertainment system was old and didn't function properly. Bathrooms were never cleaned on 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Excellent flight"
Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Cons: "Pathetic vegetarian food. Same pasta was served twice."
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Pros: "Crew is always excellent, food is amazing. Overall is always good."
Cons: "The airplane was old, seats were uncomfortable. Ataturk staff, Turkish Airline ground staff is so HORRIBLE, we are never traveling with Turkish Airline again."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight over from Atlanta to Istanbul. Everything was timely and clean."
Cons: "I wished that I would have talked to my flight attendant about the man that sat next to me. His body odor was so hard to deal with for a 10 hour flight and his constant getting up to go use the bathroom."
Pros: "Good service and chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "Took FOREVER to get my bag in Tashkent. When you arrive at 2:30 in the morning, you want to get your bag and go to bed, not spend another hour or more waiting at the airport. This may not be entirely the fault of the airline, but it seems that a company like Turkish Airlines should have enough clout to insist on a better travel experience for their customers."
Pros: "The crew was nice They handled the delay well so we didn't missed our connection afterall"
Cons: "1. We had to wait 2 hours in the plane 2. there is no way to use the monitors (not a personal monitor)."
Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"
Cons: "The security at the airport is a little too much. Once we landed at Istanbul we went through a security check point which took about 30-40 minutes. I barely made it to my connection flight . Then I went through another security check before boarding the plane. Unnecessary in my opinion"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight was fast. On time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the first flight at all. Seats are very cramped"
Pros: "As before, as far as airline food goes, Turkish has above average meals."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours and there was no representative from Turkish airlines there to answer questions. Again for someone 6'2", this plane had seats a little smaller than usual. On the way out, my knees never hit the seat ahead of me, this time they were constantly up against the back of other seat. Also this flights entertainment controls were terrible, constantly went back to home page while trying to select movie."
Pros: "Very nice and corteous crew"
Cons: "The papers in the bathroom toilet should have been cleaned out to allow more space in the bin.. All the toilets were packed"
Cons: "We stayed on plane for long time before it took off, and we arrived late, food was not good"
Pros: "The food was great compared to some companies. Lots of great movies to watch, good music options."
Cons: "Omg...the crew...the crew, as was in the past, and with the exception of 1 poor guy who was really trying his best, was RUDE and lacked finess. They would literally kick u in the hallway (while passing this hostess gave me a good knock on my foot and didn't turn around to apologize. ..she kept going). They will serve you food and throw the trays down on your table, talk over you to the other hostess in the other isle while serving you. Speak in the most condescending tone, especially, unfortunately to older folks or foreigners who had a hard time understanding. I mean....total chaos and, for someone who flies often both dom & intl, this has got to be the worst service received, and thought the price point is as juicy as pie, I still expect some level of class and great customer service. It's not worth it."
Cons: "There is always some kind of delay. And danger of bags not arriving on time"
Pros: "The crew was much nicer and attentive."
Pros: "It is nice that breakfast was served."
Cons: "Gate agents never called flight to board - just played an announcement twice saying it would board in 5 minutes. Free Wi-Fi on all flights would make your airline stand out. You may want to work with the airports to provide your passengers with cleaner toilets at the gates."
Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."
Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"
Pros: "flight was on time helpful staff nice meals"
Pros: "Extra 2 inches of knee room in regular economy. Made a world of difference sleeping. Food was good with a curry chicken."
Cons: "Long flight. Would have been great if they could fly supersonic!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the tasty meals:)"
Cons: "Short space for legs"
Pros: "Horrible , in-humans"
Pros: "Overall satisfied."
Cons: "More cabin staff only 3 attendants for a packed flight Long wait for another plane to land so people could get on Late landing Generally uncomfortable due to full plane and inconsiderate people May not use again"
Pros: "Quick boarding, minimum queues."
Cons: "Everything. What an absolute joke of an airline. 1) Flight attendant spilt a half a bottle of water on me and didn’t even apologise 2) Same tv shows and movies as 5 months ago. 3) no eye shades 4) entertainment turned off around 20-25 mins before landing and all headseats collected 5) staff"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Worst ground staff in Abu Dhabi and in LA. Will never fly them again. Were very unhelpful when boarding the flight in Abu Dhabi. In fact they encouraged us to not board and take another flight the next day!!! Worst flying experience ever. Will never fly them again!!!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and professional. Service was excellent and entertainment was varied with movies, shows and games with accompanying head phones."
Cons: "The foot rest in business class didn’t work, but the seat still reclined and was comfortable."
Pros: "Good news, the checking in process was so delayed as there were so many people, they made sure all who checked in, got on the plane, no hitches on the lugguages either. I got my lugguage in Singapore."
Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."
Pros: "Cabin service was excellent and the NY as well as Abu Dhabi lounge were very impressive."
Cons: "NY ground operations were pathetic. We were delayed 1 hour due to transfer baggage loading and people not taking their seats rather clogging the aisles... Sydney connection folk le were panicking but flight crew made up 30 minutes"
Pros: "Etihad aircrafts Etihad crew"
Cons: "Indian chech in employee"
Pros: "The flight attendants were mostly attentive to my needs not like a larger carrier. They were also very attractive . The boarding process was not all that bad and they waited for a flight that was coming in late verses just leaving the people stranded that was good as well."
Cons: "I ended up with a center center seat squished in like sardines. There was little to no comfort. Next time I'll pay for a upgraded seat or just fly another airlines. I'll probably never fly this airlines economy again."
Cons: "Tv Options"
Cons: "Flight delayed Baggage lost & didn’t receive upon arrival"
Pros: "The entertainment is good but there could be a better selection."
Cons: "It took 2 hours to check in, literally was going to fall over but the time i got to the desk. There was a small child who screamed for about half of the journey."
Pros: "The movie selection was decent"
Cons: "They failed to informed me that passangers have to report to the gate one full hour before direct flights to the US from Abu-Dhabi in order to clear US customs and border security which happens there prior to your flight (which is the only place in the world that this happens.) I arrived at the Airport 2.5 hours before my flight and reported to my gate 45 minutes before my flight and was not allowed through. They then were extremely rude to me when I was in the process of finding a new connection and made me buy a brand new ticket for the following morning as the penalties for rescheduling would cost more than buying a new ticket which was 1200 USD!! They insisted that this warning was on their web site and would have been on my ticket had I got it from their website. Since I purchased my ticket from Kayak.com, that was my own problem. They then showed me a warning label on the baggage claim slip that they gave me at check in but this was only in Arabic with NO ENGLISH translation provided. More importantly the representative who checked me in to my flight never told me about needing to be at the gate 1 hr before the flight. Throughout this whole process they were unapologetic, unsympathetic and rude. I met two other people that same day who had the same problem one of these passangers arrived at the gate 1.5 hrs before her flight and still could not get to her flight in time because of the inefficient customs and immigration process that the Emarati's have in place in an attempt to mimic our process in the US. This is a very bad policy which only Etihad does. If you fly through Dubai with Emirates they do not require this nonsense. The Etihad staff were rude, unhelpful, unapologetic and inefficient. Never fly from Abu-Dhabi to the US with Etihad. On the flight, as the plane came to a stop at the end of the runway but still needed to taxi in to the gate, people started getting up. Instead of calmly explaining to people what was going on, one of the stewardesses waved it off and said well when we start moving again or if something happened they will just DIE then! This was not the only occasion I was disgusted by the staff. I woke up on the flight and couldn't find my glasses and the response of one of the stewardesses was "can you ask someone else to help you, I am on my way to take a nap and if I stop to help you I want get my full rest." This airline is one of the worst in the world if not the worst. I will never fly with them again and I am considering sending these stories to a NEWS network to raise awareness on this issue. Their staff don't care. They seem to be overworked and burned out. They only get one day off when flying to New York and back when by law they are required two. This shows that they are abusive to their staff which then leads their staff to have have horrible customer service."
Pros: "The crew was very kind to my seatmate who needed help filling out some forms. Though they didn't speak her language they found someone nearby who could help."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "The food was not good. I had ordered low calorie and I got uncooked chicken and uncooked vegetables"
Pros: "The staff were lovely"
Cons: "The food options were awful & limited - sometimes there wasn’t actually an option. The flight was so squished & packed and I was incredibly uncomfortable in my seat. The boarding took ages & we were also delayed."
Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
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: "We had a medical emergency so we couldn’t take our flight. The crew were nice about understanding our situation."
Cons: "Lost our bags, didn’t call us back. We had to go to the airport to find someone to look into our bags. It’s been over a week and we still don’t know where they are. :-("
Pros: "I didnt have to catch a bus to board like how we did at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "The boarding was done the most confusing way. Back to front when there were zones on each boarding pass"
Pros: "There is nothing much to like about the flight. The only good thing about Etihad is the pre clearance option at Abu Dhabi that saves a lot of time after landing in the US"
Cons: "14+ hours of flying time where it can be done under 10 to 12 hours. Food is not good at all."
Cons: "Bad seats. Treat people like cattle with barely any leg room."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable. Plane arrived on schedule."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."
Pros: "Nice meals, good entertaintment, comfort sleep"
Pros: "1) It was not a full flight which was a plus. 2) the flight attendants from Abu Dhabi to Dahka were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "1) the food was not good. 2) the plane was older. 3) the exit seats are right by the bathrooms"
Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"
Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable . The boing 787 was a new plane and economy had a very good leg space The 3 3 3 seating is excellent"
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish. A beautiful experience."
Cons: "Nothing-everything was amazing on this flight. We boarded a little late, but made up the time during transit. Ground staff in Perth airport was excellent."
Pros: "Not like trans Atlantic flights"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "Everything from crew to food"
Cons: "Having stand online to check in again/"
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "I managed to find a MUCH cheaper deal through Kayak, cheaper than directly through the airline (£200 cheaper in fact!), which was a great start to the trip. I was emailed a confirmation that my booking had been accepted through the airline within minutes, and it was easy to workout how to check myself in. Then I had zero hassles on the flights, so I'm really pleased with the service. I was even lucky enough to have a whole row to myself on both of my flights from England to Australia, which on a +24hr flight can be an absolute godsend. Staff were all friendly even encouraging us to move to alternate seats given there was sufficient space. The air crafts were tidy and it was easy transitioning from each connecting flight. Absolutely no hassle at all."
Cons: "The only points were that the inflight entertainment from Manchester to Abu Dhabi was a tiny step below standard but great choice in terms of films to watch, my second flight was on an A380 so there was an obvious difference in design standard between the 2 planes making the first flight less desirable, and the food was OK at best. On one of my flights I didn't eat the heated meal, any sides and only ate some of the dessert given the flavour was quite poor. An airline could do to raise the taste bar standard."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seating is tight"
Pros: "Service. Crew was nice and always with a smile. Great takeoff and landing very smooth. Flight on time."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "I didn't get to take this leg of the trip due to Precision Air forcing me to miss my connection- I had to fly on Oman Air from Dar Es Salam to Abu Dhabi. I will never fly with Precision Air again."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and the food fitted our needs ."
Cons: "The only downside was that when I received my bag after my arrival to Dhaka my luggage was obviously opened and tape back up and I was missing a lot of things in my luggage . It was very upsetting because that has never happened to me before nor did I expect something like that to happen."
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
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: "I got upgraded to business class on this flight. This isn't something I can afford to do, but I will tell you it is substantially better."
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew not really sincere and work with heart"
Cons: "Didn't have a good choice."
Cons: "They took close to one hour to check us in and give us boarding pass. Once it was delayed, with no time to get things in time for security and boarding we had to rush with two kids. Although there was one checked bag allowed for infant according to the reservations they charged us 100$ for additional bag. Despite them delaying the Check in process they said if I don't pay for the checked bag I will miss my flight. This is becoming more and more of a problem with American Airlines and looks like Etihad cares less for this and they simply told me in Chicago that it was American Airlines issue and not theirs! This is totally frustrating and I will avoid American Airlines connections And future flights with Etihad as well. International travelers watch out for connections with American Airlines."
Kayak customer service is non existent.
Pros: "Crew was answering and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment if not available should be able to switch the power off"
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "This flight needs a total rehab..... the amount of electrical failures it has, it might be a disaster waiting to happen"
Cons: "Air India needs to be competitive and offer better services that is on par with other international airlines."
Pros: "Every thing SoSo Flight delay No proper signs where to go No courtesy of staff"
Cons: "Cortese staff more helpful in answering to customer I had less weight in checked baggage requested agent if I could check in my small had bag which would have made it 27 kg total ( 2 kg more than allowed wt of checked baggage ) but no carry on Was spoken to very rude with agent"
Cons: "Power plugs weren’t working."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly. We left the gate 10 minutes ahead of schedule, and landed early. The crew was very good. Landing was perfect."
Cons: "The flight had technical issues and we were in the plane for 2.5hrs and suffocating. The pilot didn’t have the courtesy to give updates. The in flight entertainment systems didn’t work and the overall experience was bad"
Pros: "Nonstop and quick way to get from Chicago to India. Good connections from Delhi to the rest of India's metros. Easy connecting flights with great support by airport personnel to direct you to the right place."
Cons: "The crew seems disinterested in serving the cabin. Other than the 3 planned meals they seemed genuinely irritated or uninterested in serving anything else or making themselves available. The food options on such a long non-stop were woefully inadequate and the food served was sub par."
Pros: "Their luggage policy allows one free checked bag and one carry on"
Cons: "Very easy. No hassle what’s so ever. Great job to Kayak team."
Pros: "Staff were courteous and well mannered. Food was good"
Cons: "Seat covers are soiled"
Pros: "Staff was doing their job dutifully! Arrival at Chicago quite convenient."
Cons: "Unless AirIndia improves it’s carrier it’s question of time! >50% TVs were nonfunctional! Seat covers are torn at places! Food just ok but ordinary! Overall, one is unimpressed!"
Pros: "On the Dreamliner airplane there was plenty of room, even in economy, for my legs. Even for the 5 minutes when someone leaned back I was comfortable. Movie selection was great and the service excellent."
Cons: "There was nothing that stood out as disappointing."
Pros: "Inside plane, clean and more leg space with good reclining in economy class cabin. The cabin crew manners and behaviors has improved from worst to good but still have some way to go to be better. Food was reasonable. Toilets and entire plane was kept clean from start to end of the journey. Announcements were informative, short and crisp. The captain profusely apologized for long delay."
Cons: "The flight got delayed for take off at Bombay (Mumbai) by 8 hours and the Air India ground staff handled it extremely poorly. Didn’t exhibit their responsibility and didn’t stand by their accountability for passenger experience, customer service, and excelling in providing a better flying experience to their passengers. It was painful, tiring, and frustrating. Boarding process was I’ll managed and chaotic. Even wheel chair passengers were left behind."
Pros: "The direct flight from Washington Metro area"
Cons: "Absolutely old, ill-maintained plane, The tray table was slanted and food tray slipped all the time. I had to be careful that food didn't spill out. Uncomfortable seat with no leg room to speak of whatsoever. The seat didn't incline for sleep and drifted slowly within in a couple of minutes o the upright position. The travelers were horrible as well. Many passengers were just not behaving well. Left toilet papers all over the floor. Toilet room was poorly maintained. No napkin towels to wipe our hands! Flimsy napkin (if you can call that!) for dinner. Generally, the worst flight experience that my wife and I have had! And, we fly a lot around the world!"

Pros: "Crew was very efficient and prompt with food service. Very attentive"
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Broken handsets, buttons missing. Two of our tv sets were broken on a 14 hour journey with two kids thats brutal. I don't know whats the deal is but every flight that I take of air india from nyc to india or back ALWAYS has a restroom that doesn't work. The one at the back doesn't have water. ALWAYS. How is it possible to take off on an aircraft on a 14 hour journey with no water in the restroom. HOW?"
Pros: "Must highly commend Benaifer Batliwala and Calvin Cruz of the cabin crew. Amazing service, felt like we were a family in the sky !"
Cons: "Wish that my video panel worked. It was one of many that did not work. How does a video panel not work for 14 hours of a flight between Washington and Delhi?"
Cons: "No compensation was offered"
Pros: "Food, plenty"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "The boarding process. Needs to be managed properly."
Pros: "In Flight service is terrible. They don't care just do mechanically."
Cons: "Poor customer service is the biggest problem. Please don't sell AirIndia tickets on your website"
Cons: "The seats were broken with large cracks visible. The arm rest was also broken with a metal protruding out. There were many seats in the same broken state. The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The quality for the aircraft was not great and seemed very old."

Cons: "Schedule and timing of flight"
Cons: "Schedule and timing of flight"

Pros: "I liked flying on the Dreamliner."
Cons: "The food was substandard."
Pros: "Its the only non-stop flight from SFO to Delhi"

Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "Flight and Boarding"
Pros: "Some bathrooms are larger than usual."
Cons: "Checkin was a 4 hour wait mess. Food runs out. Fruit isn't ripe. Plane is very old, uncomfortable old, lumpy seats. 1/4 of entertainment screens are broken."
Pros: "I liked that the plane landed and that I would not have to ride Air India ever again."
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken. I was flying business class. No seat should ever be broken on business class, considering the premium price. When I asked them to fix it, they told me that I can move to broken seat with a working entertainment system. They eventually fixed the seat and I moved but it was narrower and the screen was to my left, not in front of me. They refused to upgrade me to 1st class. The seat were old, won out, and not comfortable, which matters on an 18 hour flight. They also messed up my frequent flyer miles. I felt like I was treated like dirt. I recommend a different airline. 3/4 Air India flights have had similar problems."
Cons: "Entrainment on way back was problematic. No information on final departure time after delay going out"
Cons: "Crew was very rude and did not respond to any attendant lights. Seats have not been updated in decades, there is no cushioning left and they were very uncomfortable! They recline about 2 inches total. Old cracked tables/seats in front as well. Bathrooms do not function properly and are poorly maintained. Only one drink service, the rest of the time it is water only."
