When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move.

And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Pros: "Nothing really stood out. Having a pillow and blanket for every seat is a plus."
Cons: "Plane wasn’t cleaned very well, trash in the seat back pocket. Was given a meal that wasn’t on the menu and was unedible. At the end of the flight they spray air freshener down the entire aisle which is very concentrated."
Cons: "Extremely small space, knees against seat in front, I am only 6 ft tall."
Cons: "The connecting flight (at Colombo) was delayed for more than 5 hrs and there was no communication of whatsoever. There were barely any Srilankan airline personnel at the terminal/information desk to help assist or inform passengers. No acknowledgement of the discomfort caused to passengers."
Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."
Pros: "Nice lounge. Good food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was late, may not be their fault"
Pros: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Pros: "Like fying in the dark ages. Our first leg crew did a great job and offered first person information about what not to miss on our tour. Pretty much everything else went from bad to worse!"
Cons: "Our bags got lost on arriving flight and in this day of advanced technology and airport security, no one could even tell “where” our two pieces of luggage was located for 4 days. Needless to say our one time trip to Sri Lanka didn’t happen the way we planned."
Pros: "Awsome service and on time flights"
Pros: "The seat were nice & the staff more helpful than before"
Cons: "Food can be better Entertainment is not good at all, you are starting it after take off, which might take an hour, and closing it an hour before landing Which is something not nice at all"
Pros: "Love Etihad service"
Cons: "Snacks, i didn't want set meal"
Pros: "Overall satisfied.."
Pros: "Efficient airline, friendly staff."
Cons: "Can't blame the airline but getting through terminals is time consuming in Abu Dhabi. Seats are small and hard but I felt excellent value for money."
Cons: "There should be more space between the seat because not all passengers can fit . And every passenger should have a chance to lower there seat without disturbing the passenger behind them ."
Cons: "flight was overbooked had to stay in abu dhabi"
Cons: "Worst food i ever had in flight..please organize goid caterers"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. The entertainment system was also excellent."
Cons: "The flight had onboard wifi which was awesome to be able to be online during the flight but it did lack the level of service expected. Everything on the flight was fantastic except the wifi which kept dropping out"
Cons: "My wife had a drunk passenger sitting next to her and the crew did nothing to stop the man from misbehaving.....what can I say to this inefficiency ??? I choose to not travel with ETIHAD ever again."
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."
Cons: "We did order food vegetarian Jain but they didn’t provide that."
Cons: "There was no complimentary toothbrush, and socks to wear like other international flights. To disembark from plane you have to go down stairs, which is not easy for seniors. And the same to board in the plane."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."
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: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"
Pros: "they are quiet but not as roomy as i hoped. The food was okay.prices in Abu dhabi are extortionate though for a 5 hr stop."
Cons: "The plane to bangkok from Abu Dhabiis a bean tin cram as many on as you can . the seat sent my backside to sleep for 3 days and my ankles and legs are badly swollen. disappointed and not looking forward to return flights"
Pros: "have good lounge seats"
Cons: "Disasterous! The flight departed 3 hours late because of some mechanical problem. So missed connections in Abu Dhabi, although Ethihad could have held a later connection to BKK for just about 20 minutes for us to board. The huge hassle getting lodging from the airline to take an onward flight the next day. Your staff would not accommodate us at the airport hotel so we could avoid the need to obtain a visa, which takes a minimum of 3 hours wait. We finally gave up on the visa and decided to just stay up overnight at the airport. That caused one kind Ethihad staff to finally make issues us an authorization for the hotel at the airport. We would never fly your airline again."
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "I like it"
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."
Pros: "Food menu need to be modified."
Cons: "Add chicken biryani, chicken shawarma etc."
Pros: "The organisation of the crew & their amability was very Good"
Cons: "I didn’ t like the food bcs of the rice Rice & rice again & especially the dinner it was only spicy rice"
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
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 new A380 was great"
Cons: "It was freezing cold Trays were left in front of passengers for too long Entertainment options were poor"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was fantastic and nice. Flight was as comfortable as they could make it for the limited space. Food was great for airplane food. Entertainment was decent. Didn't try the wifi because I didn't need to."
Cons: "Would've been more inclined to use wifi if by time and not bytes."
Pros: "the nice crew- the relative speed of boardinf"
Cons: "compared with Emirates, the movies/Tv choices are very limited and in addition, only available -after take off and stop being available 30 min before landing. very disaappointing compared with emirates when we can start watching content from the minute we are on the plane until the very last minute. also, the plane had very limited space dedicated to stretch legs compared to other A380 from other companies."
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Cons: "Service was a bit average. Attendants bumping into you... no apologies"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and the dinner delicious."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"
Pros: "I did not like it"
Cons: "Employees unfriendly and rude"
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"
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."
Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."
Pros: "Boarding and checking was effortless. The crew was attentive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Seats are too cramped"
Cons: "Food choices were limited"

Cons: "The person checking me in at Delhi was rude. Didn’t let me take the cabin bag that others were allowed to take."
Pros: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"
Cons: "On board staff not responding not friendly"
Cons: "I missed the flight in the airport and when I went to the office in the airport to put me on the next flight they denied help. They asked me to pay the difference. I had to agree but I had not a credit card so they refused to take cash. Spend very frustrating two hours trying to convince the rude employee to put me on the flight... Do not use that airport or that company."
Pros: "Free movies and polite hostesses and service"
Cons: "Free internet"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "comfort crew"
