Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Cons: "everything. see what i mentioned above. i will not book through your company again"
Pros: "The service was great and was on time"
Cons: "The service and was"
Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Last row seats are never optimal but tha flight attendants were above par!!!"
Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"
Cons: "Leg rooml"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"
Pros: "Hotel to freshen up was great idea"
Cons: "Visa took forever. Ended having only 2 hours at the hotel"
Pros: "I was met with a warm smile which made me feel welcome. The staff were friendly and professional. Even though it was a full flight, I did not just feel like a number, top airline. I will choice them again."

Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"
Cons: "The Seats were really old and no new movies"
Pros: "Business Class Seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and online entertainment system had a lot to offer. Online check-in does save time, it's a shorter queue & you just have to drop off your luggage."
Cons: "Eithad charges for seat selection now! Not seats with extra legroom or any other perks. But any seat in Economy if you select it 24 hours before departure, anywhere from $25 to $45. Seat selection is free if flight departure is less than 24 hours away but available seats are all random."
Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"
Cons: "everything by alot"
Cons: "Paid for extra leg room seats and didnt get them"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Their time."
Pros: "Overall satisfied."
Pros: "The service was good"

Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Service could have been better"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "The crew were NOT helpful, The captain didn't inform us well about the delay"
Cons: "More communication with passengers, as well start the Entertainment screens early, NOT after take off ?? which is really strange ??"
Pros: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and caused me to miss my flight. Then made me buy new tickets"
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: "The flight was not full. . I had 3 seats to myself. So very comfortable and the crew had plenty of time to give individual attention . The flight was very punctual. Arrived 20.minutes early ."
Cons: "The food was a little cold ."
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Cons: "Etihad staff for borading at Toronto (YYZ) airport was rude and unpleasent. Always long lineups to get boarding card, they treat passengers like cattles and sheeps. Etihad airlines ground staff was very rude! Seats in the economy class of Etihad airlines are getting congested more and more every year."
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
Cons: "Boarded by bus"
Pros: "Could not fault anything... great boarding. Service, food and flightsnothing...."
Cons: "Nothing..... the staff could not be more helpful if they tried"

Pros: "Clean aircrafts, average leg space and nothing less in services then what you get from other airlines as well."
Cons: "I found crew members bit rude to few customers. Crew members need bit more training in handling pressure on the flight. Also i noticed biased approach of crew members towards customer in comparison to the well dressed and not so well dressed customers."
Pros: "The new A380 was great"
Cons: "It was freezing cold Trays were left in front of passengers for too long Entertainment options were poor"
Cons: "No food and crew was so rude and Lahore airport crew not only rude also nasty"
Cons: "The smell inside the flight"
Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Pros: "Passengers were not clean and sweating"
Pros: "Plenty of spare seating. Cabin staff and crew very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was dreadful more than 50pc not working. Flight tracker not working. Back of end rear cabin seats some were loose. Dreading return legs of trip."
Pros: "Great cabin staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Entertainment was unwatchable. In physical pain from poor seating."
Pros: "They didn't let me n my sister fly. Plus they took 3 hours to give our bags back."
Cons: "The attitude of the airline n everyone was poor. No help nothing from anyone."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."
Pros: "Crew were great..."
Cons: "Food was very poor. Entertainment was awful"
Pros: "Only check in and boarding was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was on time. This was a newer plane"
Cons: "it was great"
Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"
Cons: "Travel agency did not notify me that I needed to get a Yellow Fever immunization"
Cons: "One of my checked baggage was lost."
Cons: "Ran out of the best meal option in Business Class..."
Pros: "Crew were nice, food on board was ok Given the long wait time at immigration, we did not have to wait for our bags."
Cons: "Rouge seats are notoriously uncomfortable, especially on a 9 hour flight. Rouge Player entertainment sucks, very poor movie selection. Irish immigration took 45 minutes... a ridiculous amount of time in this day and age. My time with the officer took about 30 seconds, so obviously the problem is that they are understaffed...not the best way to start your trip to Ireland after a long flight!"
Pros: "It was basically a United flight instead of Air Canada. Had usuall good quality United service"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Good service, surprisingly good food, smooth and efficient."
Cons: "The premium seating we paid extra for because we need leg room (my partner and I are 6'+) was the first row behind the 1st class seperation wall...so no way to extend legs by placing feet under the seat in front. Not very comfortable or worth $100 IMO."
Pros: "Our plus seats were very comfortable. The service & demenour of the crew was mediocre. The evening meal was quite good although We were never offered a second glass of wine with our dinner."
Cons: "The breakfast was terrible. The pastry was soggy & was served with a bottle of Yop. That was it. No coffee or anything else."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "Pleasant crew on board. Quick boarding. The pilot made regular announcements when the flight was delayed (for weather or other reasons that were out of their control)"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Seats rotate during recline. Washrooms are nice and big. Window shades are electronic. Dims the cabin but you can still see out. Very comfortable. Very stable in the air, like a 747. Great entertainment package. Free wine."
Cons: "Pretty much the worst food I’ve had and I’ve travelled a lot, all over the world. You would think on a flight to Paris that the food would be excellent?!!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional and the seats were slightly more spacious than a typical US domestic flight, though still not comfortable. The entertainment was excellent. Many of the movies were recent releases and lots of award winners. The earbud sound was awful, but I may have just gotten a dud pair. Luckily I had brought my own. the vegan meal was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Cons: "Umm let me see. Oh yeah they lost my luggage and still haven’t found it. Pretty much ruined my whole trip."
Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."
Pros: "Nothing much to complain about. For the section we were in, economy, the seats were pretty comfortable. Good space in front. Decent pitch. IFE was excellent. Staff were friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be there. Good mix of younger and older staff. Food wasn’t bad. Cabin crew kept passengers up to date. Really can’t ask for anything more."
Cons: "Well. Maybe one small thing. Airflow from vents above were a bit weak. I think the newer planes are like that as our next leg on a smaller A319 had quite the powerful vents."
Cons: "There was no complimentary food: not even snacks. Nice to have some juice, tea etc, though"
Pros: "Food was great for airplane food, there was bibimbap, jjajjangmyun and egg sandwich"
Cons: "Didn’t like being in a small seat for 10+ hours. Plane seemed more cramped than I remember"
Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."
Pros: "they had top movies, which helped me get through. The staff were friendly enough to not be rude and to do what they were suppose to on the flight. the food was good for the first meal, real chicken. second meal only had pork so luckily I had bought a burger in the airport before boarding since I do not eat pork. All my layover flights were on time with on time boarding/ departure which i Highly appreciated."
Cons: "I did not understand why they would use the same seat design they used for a 2-5 hour flight for a 11Hour Flight!! I had never experienced being that uncomfortable in my seat. I am used to flying 13hours straight but with comfortable and Padded! seats with room to move. the seats were not padded and there was little to no space to put your legs in a comfortable position. My back and neck were killing me in the last 2 hours."
Cons: "Steward. & meals"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Cons: "Lost luggage!"
Pros: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Cons: "few movies"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "No flight entertainment at all."
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service from check in through to the flight attendants. Needed to download app on my phone for an international flight in order to watch movies. Was very unimpressed with the experience."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean aircraft. Friendly crew. Seats at the front of Economy had excellent legroom. Helpful flight announcements from the captain."
Cons: "Air Canada has only one gate at Houston, which appears to be in constant use, at least in the early afternoon. If one flight is delayed in departure, it causes a backup with other flights."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Pros: "The food was great, service was excellent, and entertainment selection was awesome."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Cons: "Easy and friendly check in and inflight courtesy."
Pros: "Aircraft and schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better. Not lot of options in the entertainment. Indian food offered in other airlines such as Emirates and British Airways have been better than what has been offered in native Air India flight"
Pros: "Yes service was nice and after telling about food allergy for spicy food she offered me some other snacks which wasn't spicy."
Cons: "To have more options about food in a sense for those who has allergy for spicy food."
