Cons: "I flew Turkish from Chicago to Istanbul on Sat Feb 7. Entertainment system did not work for the whole flight. (10 hours). I flew back from Istanbul to Chicago on Sat Feb 27. It was not working again for the whole flight (11 hours). Either I flew back on the same aircraft in which the system was defective and was not repaired for 3 weeks, or all the Turkish aircrafts have no entertainment system. How it was elected to be Europe's Number 1 airline last year is a mystery. May be the service in all other European airlines is less than this"
Cons: "From Istanbul to Karachi turkish used old plane - In business class there is a major difference in seats and all other things as compared to newer planes. On their website at the time of sale they show the newer plane and its business class. SO overall did not felt right due to older style seats- However staff was still very courteous and pleasant"

Cons: "Crew Behaviour"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Pros: "Food varieties are not that good"
Cons: "Make the food quality, quantity and varieties to be improved"

Cons: "Traveling to Greece in off peak season."
Pros: "Got me from a to be"
Cons: "Just don't use Etihad"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. The entertainment system was also excellent."

Pros: "The cabin crew in first class and coach were excellent... went well beyond the call of duty... AA and United can learn from them!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure was pathetic... the first class coach was overloaded and after a 10 minute drive a steep ladder to climb!! Kind of difficult if you have been traveling for last 18 hours"
Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"
Cons: "My co passengers."
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."
Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."
Pros: "great plane, comfort, crew"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Everything was bullshit!"
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."
Cons: "Flight connection was delayed by 90 minutes."
Pros: "Passengers were not clean and sweating"
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."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "Had to board from a bus & the tarmac due to the construction at Abu Dhabi. Combined with a full flight - there was a lot of pushing as people were trying to get onboard first. We left an hour late as well"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I travelled from KUL to JFK with transit at Abu Dhsbi. Nightmarish transit in Abu Dhabi. Three intrusive security screenings (why three?). At some point they take away your boarding pass and make you sit in a hall for about half an hour (with similar 'criminals') with no access to bathrooms without telling you why. Then they call your name to return the boarding pass ( which was a problem for me because I am hearing challenged). Not sure this special treatment is reserved for just brown skinned travellers"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew great. Enough food at proper times. Plane clean"
Cons: "Wish they had earlier check in for a 777 flight."
Pros: "I purchased a premium seat, and I still felt as though I was being packed into a sardine can. Furthermore, the online seat map used to purchase my preferred seat did not match the seating arrangement of the actual aircraft, which was TREMENDOUSLY disappointing."
Pros: "cheapest fiar"
Cons: "We have cancelled the trip on some personal problems online on kiwi.com, called twice also but till date no action is taken. Neither we got refund nor tickets got cancelled, eventhough we have cancelled tickets 3 days prior to start of our trip"
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "1. Seat changes are done last minute despite booking the seats online with out informing us. I felt that there was no point securing online seating early. Difficult to adjust seats in the last minute. I was separated from my family. Given wrong information about seats. Had to real work with staff to finally get seats adjusted. Not very easy to work staff. Understanding of English is not that good. 2.Had problems checking the luggage all through despite connection was through star alliance. 3.Had to wait in airport in transit to get boarding passes. Did not understand why it was despite having booked seats early. 4.Seats provided were not good. 5.Also head phones didn't work. I told staff three times and still no response. Finally gave up i had booked because ratings were good. But service was not even close to expectations. Dissapointed."

Pros: "Flight attendant manager is particularly friendly courteous and professional. I felt my obligation to mention that to the airline company."

Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Pros: "Flight was good - smooth takeoff & landing. But delayed half hour in Abu Dhabi , did not make it up. Crew good but food was not tasty. My wife's specially ordered Jain vegetarian meal was inedible. Seat comfort OK but soiled by a supper in seat ahead, could not stretch legs."
Cons: "Entertainment choice for Indians limited and poor content. Unremarkable English movies & music. Quantity but not quality"
Cons: "Boarding was worst.. Kids and old people need to be boarded first. There is no courtesy for passengers."
Pros: "I really loved the blanket,socks and all the other accesories they provided on board!"
Pros: "Just my seat. Which has more leg space."
Cons: "Food and I had to call them numerous times to give me something to eat because I was starving. For such a long flight they only had pop corns for snack. I missed my first served meal because I was sleeping for second one they didn't bother to ask me. When I asked for it I was given a cold sandwich."
Cons: "Delayed departure, lost luggage"
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "nice plane"

Pros: "The crew on my recent flight desreves a five star applause. I've travelled on other airlines in the same segment and had come to accept the crew treatment to economy passengers. But Etihad changed that and showed me that we can be treated quite well even in an economy seat. Everything from them remembering my preferences to immediately honoring my requests to going out of the way to even reach ground staff about our preferences for our next flight, it simply was a great feeling to be on board."
Cons: "The check-in process was very strict in terms of weight of hand bags and cabin baggage. 7.6kg (600gm over) was not allowed to pass through - something other passengers need to be aware of. The attendedant who printed my boarding pass printed 2 copies of the same pass instead of one for each flight. I realized it only when it didn't scan at the security gate and had to go all the way back and stand in the security line all over again. Luckily we were not short of time for the flight else that might have been a problem."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "BAG got damaged and no response from anybody. Staff not there . Kindly help me."
Pros: "The crew were serviceable and the food and entertainment good."
Cons: "I've travelled on budget airlines before but I've never had so little leg room. Given it was a long haul flight this aspect completely ruined any positives. I'm going to do my best to avoid them in future."
