Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy and entertainment system was excellent."
Cons: "Crew didn’t seem happy to be on board. Baggage was substantially delayed and both take off and taxiing after landing were delayed by approximately an hour each."
Pros: "Crew and hospitality"
Pros: "Helpful crew, great bathrooms"
Cons: "More organized boarding & more AC in the back of the flight"
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."
Pros: "Planes were good with good leg room"
Cons: "For Asian Veg Meal, they served Paneer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spacing between meals was quite large. Entertainment options for adults and kids were quite limited."
Pros: "Entertainment system , crew was nice ."
Cons: "Being late for one and half hour, they started late and did not catch arrival at time , paid $ 30 dollars to have very normal seat food was not that good ."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."
Cons: "Food needs to get better."
Pros: "The flight itself was good when it eventually left."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was another Virgin flight leaving Launceston at the same time so the lounge was very busy. Our flight was late while the other was on time and there were no announcements that our flight was delayed. The screen over the gate also did not show our flight details at any stage, even when it eventually boarded.. I'm familiar with Launceston airport so it was okay, but for someone not familiar, especially an international visitor, it would have been confusing as to which flight was which especially as no announcement or visual display was given that our flight was running late."
Pros: "Flight was punctual. A380 is a nice plane to fly on, but see other comments. Entertainment choices are good, but see other comments."
Cons: "On arrival at Sydney, discovered my bag damaged. The metal cage that holds the handle slider had been broken so they must have really thumped the bag. Re windows and cabin lighting. Flight left Abu Dhabi at 21:50, landed Sydney at 17:50 next day. The cabin was kept in darkness until 3pm Sydney time / 9am Abu Dhabi time. This only gave us 2 hours of daylight on Tuesday, terrible in trying to adjust to a new timezone!! Even going off Abu Dhabi time, why wait till 9am to turn on the lights and raise the windows? No-one sleeps that long and it creates too much darkness. Please turn on the lights and raise window shades a few hours earlier to help our body clocks adjust. The view of the world outside the window is also interesting! Re entertainment system: with some airlines you can use the entertainment system immediately on embarking but with Etihad you have to wait till airborne. Considering boarding begins an hour before departure, that is a long time to sit waiting without being able to use the entertainment system. Re comfort: I don't know why, but the Etihad A380 seats have this weird head rest on one side that can't be folded flat. I found it quite annoying. Also when you recline the seat, it also goes forward scrunching you towards the seat in front. I found the Emirates A380 seat a lot roomier and more comfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice enough."
Cons: "1. On FCO-AUH route, my son’s entertainment system did not work. We informed the flight attendant and she said it has to be reset but did not come back to do something about it. 2. On AUH-MLA route, my entertainment system is so unresponsive. The touch screen does not work, so I had to use the manual controls. 3. Repetitive advertisements 4. Movies are old, not updated. 5. Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "The crew took care of their passengers' needs throughout the flight with plenty of food and drinks."
Cons: "My headphones or speaker did not work on my TV so I was unable to watch any movies. It was difficult to sleep as I was woken up to see if I wanted food or drink"
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."

Cons: "The food!"
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good"
Pros: "Decent movie selections."
Cons: "Service is on par with American Airlines which I usually expect a little better with international airlines. Food overalll was terrible. They are not really offering any choices. Even I was first few to be served in the cabin, I was given paneer with rice without offering any options. I complained that how can they possibly run out of options already. They run to the front and got me a chicken meal and told me that was the last one they have. Haha, I totally believed him (not). The meal before landing we were served paneer again. Ugh! Plane is overall dated. They made everybody to fit and weigh the carry on before boarding. My carryon did not fit (although it was pretty standard size carry on) and was over their 7kg (15lbs) weight. I checked mine in since I did not check in any other luggage. But many people were forced check in and pay extra check in fee because they are already at their luggage allowance."
Cons: "I am very upset with Etihiad's service. On both ways, I had trouble with my luggage. On the way to Delhi all my bags were open and stuff was missing and now on the way back to U.S. all of my luggage was missing. I would not choose to fly Etihad again."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Wish there could be more options for the entertainment and given that it is 14 hour long flight, the meals could be given more frequently."
Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "For US flights checking at the US immigration is very unorganized by AUG crew. No good communication for long overlay passengers."
Pros: "Quality Airline Excellent service Food was also great"
Pros: "Interior design.Soft warm colours condisive to a relaxing vibe."
Cons: "Only one toilet available for a cabin full of people waiting in line for longer than comfort requires.Entertainment needs an uplift.Drab and dreary."
Pros: "Ample room and privacy provided by the tastefully done seating pod arrangement"
Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."
Pros: "Same as above. For vegetarians food is not as comfort as other things"
Pros: "boarding procedure ; service in flight was good"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable in the exit rows"
Cons: "The size of the plane results in long delays to use the facilities due to the number of people on board"
Pros: "I liked the fact my request to sit with my wife was successful and we both got exit rows. Staff were very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Check in took took long and it would be better if you could use more technology to speed up the process (e.g.) check in via email and check your bags before you get to the airport so you can just drop them off."
Pros: "Food and service was great"
Cons: "My bags wwre the last two to arrive. And on a previous flight they didn't arrive at all, I had to go get it two days later. Baggage service need to drastically be improved"
Pros: "Not a specific thing"
Cons: "The food was awful, the entertainment and wifi were cut off 30 minutes before landing, seats were not comfortable and LA crew were not cooperating at all."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were professional and courteous. I would like to thank the staff particularly on my return journey who were very courteous and professional."
Cons: "Vegetarian food. The airlines need to differentiate clearly between regular vegetarian Vs special vegetarian meals. Special vegetarian meal is tasteless and has nothing in it. Also, the food portions are small and it wouldn't hurt the business if they include a decent snack in between the meals. Food wise, its a lean mean cuisine."
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival was on time. Check in staff very helpful."
Pros: "Good comfort. Good entertainment. Excellent food. Courteous service."
Pros: "Customer service at the counter very rude"
Cons: "Bad customer service and bad attitude"
Cons: "We were sited in the 7th row (the row right before the emergency exit) and the chairs can't be moved, so, having the people in front of us with their chairs in the sleeping position and our seats all straight it was the most uncomfortable flight we were ever on."
Cons: "There was no jet bridge facility for entering into the aircraft. We had to carry our carry on luggage to aircraft via Bus. Etihad needs to ensure the traveler's comfort all the way up to their end destination and not till Doha."
Pros: "A380 fit out is fantastic. Great seats, lavatories and design touches throughout the cabin. Crew were incredibly personal and professional. The entertainment system was easily the best I've ever used; great and responsive screen, loads of quality content and the best route map/stats program I've come across. Definitely one of my favourite economy flights I've had."
