Both outbound (on 12/06) and inbound (today’s) Qatar flights were late. The delay today made me miss my connection and added 7 hours to my 30-hour journey making it 37 hours of traveling! Very disappointed with Qatar.
Compared to other used airlines over more than 30 years, it was an excellent experience.
I could not able to travel because of the restrictions from srilanka to india, no notification was given to me about that. Then i changed my ticket to get there.
Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "Awesome experience on Qatar Airways... will definitely fly with them again!!!"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Pros: "Great crew!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Cons: "19 hours layover and Qatar airlines doesn’t want to accommodate a hotel room after charging Me almost $1500 for a flight. This is a horrible service Qatar airlines."
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Pros: "Very packed and no leg space"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the service social excellent. The Seat were so cramp, the best sales point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."
Pros: "Good crew, fair 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. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. 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: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Pros: "Snacks and the crews on board"
Cons: "The crews in the airport, not friendly. They dont even smile!"
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: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"
Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "It's was good"
Cons: "The plane from Qatar to Nairobi new modern plane needed"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."
Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."
Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Pros: "On time departure and nice group of crews"
Cons: "Main food amount is small compared To other long range airlines. Did not offer coffee or Tea."
Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes late, with no explanation - even though we took off on time. Even with a short dog leg over Iran, we should have been able to make up any delay over an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Nothing really. Only thing would be you had to be pretty specific with the staff not be woken up because they ensured you were fed and hidrates (not necessarily a bad thing)"
Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."
Pros: "All the service."
Pros: "Some of the crew were friendly, certainly not all of them."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was subpar. Paid extra for a “twin” seat and after this experience I think passengers should be paid extra to sit here."
Pros: "Marco was a great crew member, handled the sick child like a pro"
Cons: "Kid running around bumping into everybody. Impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Nothing, weren’t even allowed on the plane."
Cons: "Should have let me on the plane."
Pros: "Yes, crews and comfort were amazing."
Pros: "The crew good except one man i guess from India"
Cons: "The food was not good at all"
Pros: "v cooperative crew & helpful"
Pros: "Crew, food, drinks, and seats were fantastic"
Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"
Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Not really Seat cushion hard ."
Cons: "Boarding disorganised..little management of the process"
Cons: "There was no acknowledgment of Platinum status with Qantas. I do not expect anything special, and I usually just get a welcome back, but this time there was zero acknowledgment. The seat from DXB to HKG did not quite go “flat”. The upper half went as far back as, i’d say, around 170 degrees."
Cons: "- We were made to sit in flight for 2 hours. Then all were offloaded. - We were made to sit on airport for flight for about 6 hours. - I was not allowed to exit or reschedule the flight until i waited for 6 hours. - Still its not confirmed whether the flight will depart on given time. - I missed my important work in India. - The new flight arrives Mumbai midnight 2:30 am which is very hectic for me. I paid more for the flight at the time of booking knowing it will reach in the evening."
Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable."
Pros: "Jumbo jet plane was fantastic."
Cons: "None for now"
Pros: "Tv and kids movies , crew were nice"
Cons: "There were not enough chair to sit to wait at the gate B3. Most of us sit on the floor"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "Better food than out of Newark. Crew helpful as always."
Cons: "Legroom is poor but unlike the Newark-Athens leg, I was able to get an aisle seat that allowed me to stretch a bit. Choice of English language movies is poor. Depending on the price I would still prefer the Delta non stop flight from US to Greece because of the movie choices and ease of use of remote control."
Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed one hour, then we were asked to line up for boarding but it took another 45 minutes of standing before we were boarded. The flight ended up taking off 2 hours late. We missed our connecting flight, the meal vouchers in Dubai were for vendors that were a) shut down/no longer open and b) of terrible food quality (McDonalds!? AWFUL!)"
Pros: "Nice wide seats"
Cons: "some of the flight attendants were nice and others were openly irritated by the passengers"
Cons: "From Dubai to London was very cold in the plane"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Beautifully dressed; impeccable makeup; very professional. Very friendly, helpful. PILOTS were amazing!!! GREAT FLIGHT, LITTLE TURBULENCE. LOVE the stickers found in the bag with the earphones, ("WAKE FOR FOOD", "DO NOT WAKE FOR FOOD", etc) but they were never mentioned by the crew. Found them by myself. I think more people would use if they knew about them. LOVE the gift bag with eye mask, etc. Very welcome gift."
Cons: "Seats are too small. Very difficult to stand up and get out of your seat. Even young people have trouble getting up and out into the aisle. The aisle is TOO NARROW! At least one seat on each row should be eliminated, as well as one row to give economy class room. I was on the aisle (seat D), and was unlucky to have a woman and her husband (seats E & F) ask me to get up several times (because passenger in seat G was asleep). I was not at all happy with the movie choices; they were mostly modern and violent. Food selection was unavailable. Menu choices were chicken & fish. Chicken was NOT AVAILABLE."
Cons: "There was a minor issue with bus availability at DXB once we landed. Other than that, the flight was excellent."
Pros: "Enough leg room, wide seads"
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "My mother was the passenger Emirates & was her first experience flying alone, but having airline assistance. She marveled at their service & at every consideration to make flying alone as a senior seamless & worry-free. She was so happy of their thoughtfulness for carrying her luggage, driving her wheelchair, checking in for her w/her passport & picking up her luggage at the baggage round, that she tipped him $20. She made us sure that she would LOVE to fly alone back home again to the PH without us as long as she has airline assistance. A hint for us! She also liked how there was more foot room for economy seats than in Delta & EvaAir for this long trip & it helped her stretch her legs, as well as, the little Emirates pocket bag they give w/ear plugs & a eye mask with socks."
Cons: "She says that on her way to MNL from JFK (with the 1 stop at Dubai) the food was delicious. However on the way back home from MNL to JFK, the food was not good & she just slept all the way through."
Pros: "Food Comfort"
Cons: "Flight was 30m late "probably not their fault" so I haven't received my luggages until the next day. I suggest keeping the layover hours a little longer than 1:30m"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Delayed flight, loading after 40 minutes"
Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"
Pros: "Consideration of my disability, in-flight attention, kindness"
Cons: "for diabled people, no one to properly handle disabled, and wheelchair passengers at the door of the terminal upon arrival. Rather we are told to struggle to the wrong locations for check-in and then re-routed to another desk far across the building just to be brought to the original place silly and cruel, isn't it?"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was bad in terms of quality and quantity."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "check-in process was efficient"
Cons: "food should be better quality"
Pros: "Live entertainment TV. On time schedule."
Cons: "my flight from Dubai to mumbai - missing baggage. That was not a good experience at all."
Pros: "Great airline and staff!"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was really bad. I have travelled in Qatar Airways B class and there I was impressed by the food quality. Here it was really pathetic. Crew was helpful but were not willing to go an extra step. Like , offering a cup of coffee after someone wakes up."
Pros: "Relaxing on time flight.."
Cons: "Food was bad... Before it used to be really good..."
Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse. No kit was given which includes brush, paste, eye covering band. Last time I travelled from Boston to Dubai the food was completely frozen and now this!"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight I want to have my money back"
Pros: "This flight was so good, I did not want it to end! I will choose to fly Emirates any chance I get."
Pros: "Inspite of the system problems at the check in cou ters in lusaka the team still served with a smile and the flight left in time At Dubai airport we were assisted to get to the gate as we found that they had started boarding on the connecting flight."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "Food was awful."
Pros: "Great Service! Will highly recommend to others!"
Pros: "airlines is wow as emirates high class but service is bad. even cabin crew staff have an attitude ."
Cons: "the ground staff of emirates was giving me a very hard time and almost i missed my flight in 1 minute left because of giving wrong information regarding departure section (blue color polo shirt staff) after immigration stamp exit they are standing there and you are in right place terminal but sending u in other wrong floor to get shuttle bus to go in terminal 2 and the other ground staff (emirates staff) even telling same but once I reach terminal 2 they send me back in terminal 3 again. the worse part is the shuttle bus OMG very slow like a turtle to send u back in terminal 3 again. I wish it never happen to anyone as well. running until the last minutes even I came early its like nothing, very bad experience. (the bad things is I suppose to have flight morning but because I came late 1hr and departure stop from it. I cannot have the flight so I rebook the morning flight to afternoon flight like a bought a new flight roundtrip just to catch up for my day but. so imagine if I missed my afternoon flight too because of wrong information given by ground crew staff , who will pay for my flight? its me again and bad thing I need to wait until next day to catch up another flight incase:("
Pros: "The crew were nice, entertainment was very good"

Nice flight but from Entebbe to Amsterdam they didn’t get me what I requested for the baby.
Pros: "The plane condition."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "General flight journey"
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."

Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.
Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Pros: "Air france crew at Mumbai Airport very rude and not supportive during checkin"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."

Cons: "Coach was cramped and the video system didn’t work very well"
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"

Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."

Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."

Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Cons: "Late...delayed from algiers"
Pros: "The airplane was new, good food and service."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"

Cons: "The vegetarian meal was tasteless. I expected way more."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was ok - don't know why my vegi meal didn't have cheese and dairy in it, would have made if better. Boarding was ridiculous long line. Could have been more efficient"

Pros: "Great service by attendants Spoiled us with food"
Cons: "Not easy to find reader boards at Paris airport. Also security almost made us not make connection"

The flight attendants were very friendly and hospitable
They didn’t allow me to fly
Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "The crew was good. Loved the mango juice and veg food."
Cons: "The seats are hard. More leg room please. Better entertainment with more recent clicks required. Toilet seat needs to stay upright. The eating tables should be straight. Should be able to recline our seats more."
Pros: "This crew was better that last flight overall"
Cons: "Better seating arrangements"
Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."
Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Cons: "1. Not smiley at all. 2. I asked for a blanket as my 2 yrs old was sleeping and I have to ask three times and finally I got it. 3. I asked for arrival form 40 min before landing and the air hostess said later and she didn’t give me one ."
Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."
Pros: "The USA immigration at Abu Dhabi is an advantage"
Cons: "The baggage check-in India, I requested for fragile since I had glass stuff in my luggage but that was not done. The air hostess in the flight from hyd to Abu Dhabi mentioned me that I had to make specific preference for veg meal which I haven’t done for my flight to India neither before."
Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."
Pros: "Not much. Free shower at the airport was welcome."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi airport is poorly designed, crowded and confusing. For some bizarre reason, we had to exit the boarding area (we had arrived very early), and then re-enter at the end of a VERY long line, then dispose of the water we had bought AFTER we had already gone through one set of security checks, to have another bag search inside the boarding area. (???) For a 14 hour flight, you might expect a bit more in the line of amenities (like the Singapore Airlines pamper kit). It’s also nice to know on a long haul what you might be eating (a la Singapore Airlines menu card), but not on Etihad. Also the movies on offer through the entertainment system were a bit stale and dated. They also had no arrivals cards in English, and finding them at Sydney Airport is a nightmare. (Why do we still do the stupid things, anyway?) Then, to top it all off, after a tiring flight, Sydney Airport put on their best demonstration of appalling and confusing crowd control at the baggage carousels and getting through customs. Used to think Etihad was a quality experience, but it doesn’t seem so any more."
Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"
Pros: "Nothing compared to other airlines especially emirates airline which was amazing and reason we flew etihad thinking it will be same experience."
Cons: "Everything especially the small seats with tiny aisles like American Airlines. I was shocked with etihad compared to rest of Airlines from your country. We were very impressed with Emirates so the complaints and comments are compared to the best I have seen and not typical Airlines."
Pros: "The crew were really accommodating."
Cons: "I had chosen an aisle seat and vegetarian food online. Neither were given. The food choices were meager."
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."

Pros: "That they changed my seat to emergency row seat free of charge"
Cons: "Staff are rude ..they wake u up roughly to offer u food.. that was crazy .. too many announcements .. they stop the entertainment system 45 min prior to landing"
Pros: "US immigeation at abudhabi is helpful and reduces delay at lax"
Cons: "Shorter transit times and seats are not comfortable for the long duration flight. Served limited meals for 16 hrs journey."
Pros: "staff were great"
Cons: "a little bit of a late departure"
Cons: "I had one piece of checkin baggage. surprise surprise it was misplaced and finally delivered to my house, 10 hours after my arrival to the destination"
Pros: "Something unusual happened on this leg. A passenger became quite ill, and the captain decided to fly back to Abu Dhabi 2.5 hours after our takeoff from there. That certainly says something about Etihad's customer service. I doubt United would have done the same. A crew member told me that the double back meant an extra fuel cost of $50,000. The moral is: make sure you've got your medications in order—or whatever your health requires—before you board an airplane."
Pros: "Boarding process and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was horrible. First of all, we didn't get what we had requested. On top of it, whatever they had provided was substandard. Especially whatever they had given as sandwich."
Pros: "Lived up to the usual Etihad high standards. Efficiency, comfort, service and value for money"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Baggage ground staff behavior is very bad..Not allowed me to carry stuff which I purchased inside the airport..will never travel and will also request my company not to buy tickets through Eithad"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Crew was nice and friendly. Bathrooms were neat and clean. Nice airplane."
Cons: "Food had very little variety."
Pros: "Fantastic crew! Good selection for tv, food was good. Baggage checked all the way through, no problems or complaints at all. Will definitely fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Business lounge was out standing"
Cons: "Small duty free shop"
Cons: "Food pathetic & bogus movies"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as was the food and the aircraft itself. No complaints."
Cons: "I wish there had been more movie options."
Cons: "I got violently ill after getting off the flight. The only food I had in the last 24 hours had been from Etihad. I threw up for two days straight."
Pros: "Take off on time. Arrival early."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "The ground crew in SFO. Not friendly. Need lessons on customer service."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Cons: "appriciate co operative atitute of ground staff and crew"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The food was great, seating was comfortable. Crew members were very helpful."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Pros: "The email info The on board entertainment The food The delivery of luggage due to change of planes"
Cons: "3 hours delay without information Seat size Leg room"
Pros: "US custom and immigration check in at Abu Dhabi airport. We walked away at JFK New York as Domestic passangers."
Cons: "Appeared that the number of serving crew is small compared to the size of the plane. We had t repeat our request for service many times before we were attended."
