Cons: "Service could have been better"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."

Pros: "Crew tried to make the best of the situation. Food"
Cons: "How do you seat my wife, my 2 year old daughter and me all seperatly from each other and since our first flight from London refuse to change our seats for us. Knowing that we couldn’t choose our seats when checking in initially!!! We were not the only ones separated on this trip and we all had to sweet talk each other so we could swap and sit together. This makes the life of the crew so hard as it is not their fault and clearly many people were affected!! Lastly stop using small planes for your Brisbane flights!!!!!!! We pay good money and deserve better. This is not the first time"

Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."

Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"

Pros: "The crew was very good and made overall ambience very friendly"
Cons: "The seat alloted to me wasn’t comfortable neither pushing it behind was a struggle left me with pain in my shoulders"

Pros: "The movie selection was decent"
Cons: "They failed to informed me that passangers have to report to the gate one full hour before direct flights to the US from Abu-Dhabi in order to clear US customs and border security which happens there prior to your flight (which is the only place in the world that this happens.) I arrived at the Airport 2.5 hours before my flight and reported to my gate 45 minutes before my flight and was not allowed through. They then were extremely rude to me when I was in the process of finding a new connection and made me buy a brand new ticket for the following morning as the penalties for rescheduling would cost more than buying a new ticket which was 1200 USD!! They insisted that this warning was on their web site and would have been on my ticket had I got it from their website. Since I purchased my ticket from Kayak.com, that was my own problem. They then showed me a warning label on the baggage claim slip that they gave me at check in but this was only in Arabic with NO ENGLISH translation provided. More importantly the representative who checked me in to my flight never told me about needing to be at the gate 1 hr before the flight. Throughout this whole process they were unapologetic, unsympathetic and rude. I met two other people that same day who had the same problem one of these passangers arrived at the gate 1.5 hrs before her flight and still could not get to her flight in time because of the inefficient customs and immigration process that the Emarati's have in place in an attempt to mimic our process in the US. This is a very bad policy which only Etihad does. If you fly through Dubai with Emirates they do not require this nonsense. The Etihad staff were rude, unhelpful, unapologetic and inefficient. Never fly from Abu-Dhabi to the US with Etihad. On the flight, as the plane came to a stop at the end of the runway but still needed to taxi in to the gate, people started getting up. Instead of calmly explaining to people what was going on, one of the stewardesses waved it off and said well when we start moving again or if something happened they will just DIE then! This was not the only occasion I was disgusted by the staff. I woke up on the flight and couldn't find my glasses and the response of one of the stewardesses was "can you ask someone else to help you, I am on my way to take a nap and if I stop to help you I want get my full rest." This airline is one of the worst in the world if not the worst. I will never fly with them again and I am considering sending these stories to a NEWS network to raise awareness on this issue. Their staff don't care. They seem to be overworked and burned out. They only get one day off when flying to New York and back when by law they are required two. This shows that they are abusive to their staff which then leads their staff to have have horrible customer service."

Pros: "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: "Service was a bit average. Attendants bumping into you... no apologies"

Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."

Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too high ie it was too hot and not enough drinks given out"

Pros: "I thought 11 thousand dollars for 2 of us to fly was way to dear business class there was not a lot of room. Was my own fault I thought I was going on a380 but I woukd think twice about booking again for that price not worth it."

Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "Nil"

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."

Cons: "Small seats-space limited."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con"

Pros: "Same good entertainment. Flight left and landed on time. Breakfast was enjoyable but they had ran out of options so I didn’t get a choice, but still enjoyed what I got (banana bread)"
Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."

Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"
Cons: "On board staff not responding not friendly"

Pros: "Almost everything. Lovely staff....good seats.....plenty of recent movie options. Made 7 hours fly by!"

Pros: "Decent plane Decent food Decent service"
Cons: "Abu Dhabi Airport Is The worst! Going through the transit area is hell. The wall of people extended out of the hall and up the stairs. Shear hell"

Pros: "Gets you where you need to be"
Cons: "Broken entertainment, very uncomfortable seats, a feeling that economy is not that important to them despite the fact tickets are not exactly economy! Horrible dated beige colours everywhere and dated planes"

Pros: "Attention to detail"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."

Cons: "Ticket was not emitted I discovered it two days before departure."

Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."

Cons: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"

Pros: "Staffs are nice"
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken. I had to pay extra cost for emergency price for a bereavement."

Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Cons: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."

Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating. They came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated. I was lucky enough on this flight to have a row to myself so I could spread out."

Pros: "Service and food, comfy seats!"
Cons: "Being charged £94 each suitcase for excess baggage from Manchester! Our bags weighed in at 29k and 31k and was told it was a maximum weight of 23k! However when we left Brisbane our bags weighed the same and nothing mentioned to us! How can this happen? Same airline company different rules depending which country you depart? Very very angry with Etihad."

Pros: "Seats were not reclining. Food is not tasty. Boarding is not satisfactory Entertainment is below average movies. Would not prefer to fly again"

Pros: "granted food voucher"
Cons: "movie selection poor. 3 hour delay"

Pros: "Despite being a totally full flight, it was comfortable, with prompt food service and good entertainment options."
Cons: "- The crew member in our section was great, but two of the other crew were totally over it and were blunt and rude, both to passengers and to the other crew! - Etihad entertainment only available in the air, not gate-to-gate like other carriers such as Virgin Australia. - Rear toilets ran out of paper towels and seat liners in last few hours of flight. - Gluten-free meal options were substandard."

Cons: "Last two flights with Virgin Australia (not Etihad) were very late. Va decided to cancel my booking on my international connection even though I could make it. VA DID ALL THEY COUKD TO MAKE SURE I MISSED MY CONNECTION."

Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."

Pros: "Very old and not up to date . Not enough choice ."
Cons: "Wider choice more current content especially movies ."
