Pros: "It’s an old plane, so the seats are those older yet more comfortable type of seats!"
Cons: "Better service from the crews."
Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"
Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."

I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "was very quick"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Pros: "."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"

Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "The crew was impeccable , but unfortunately no character , no personality or friendliness . Very stoic and good as far as service. But not friendly at all . And I was in BC, brought them chocolates and e everything"
Cons: "The crew could be more friendly , more personal"
Pros: "The crew was sufficient and polite. Seats are average. Food was extremely limited. Underwhelmed but, frankly, exhausted with the process of trying to get out."
Cons: "Communication of flight departure time was not provided causing us to miss our flight and requiring over 2 hours on a cell call to Bangladesh to book a 24 hr delay which was further confused by computer glitches. Poor customer service at the flight checkin desk in Kathmandu who are, apparently, limited in what they can assist with."
Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."
Pros: "Crew and hospitality"
Cons: "Wifi"
Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."
Pros: "Crew is ok. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian food was terrible and of no quality. The inflight tamil and Hindi movies could have been better and newer."
Pros: "Seats are not too tight. Professional crew. Ventilation and overall aircraft comfort was good."
Cons: "Food can be better."
Pros: "Only 2nd leg- the crew was better"
Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"
Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"
Cons: "My co passengers."
Pros: "Legroom Entertainment Airport onboarding exp"
Cons: "- horrible crew, many crew members were just rude to many passengers. Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"
Cons: "No body from airline staff was at Lahore Airport to facilitate passengers.Lot of time wasted.One staff member was attending 2 rows of passengers in slow operational speed."
Pros: "The air hostess was very helpful .I had a problem with my seat and she arranged for a seat where I was and remained comfortable throughout my flight to Washington. Love"
Cons: "The food. I had asked for a Hindu meal. It seemed I got a diabetic meal which was devoid of taste. It should have been normal. I think Etihad misunderstood Hindu meal with Jain food,where they don't use spices,onions,garlic etc."
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."
Cons: "Too much waiting in queues... Minimum of 2 hours of waiting, Too few counters."
Cons: "The seats are small with less gap to the next row The food can be better"
Cons: "I checked in at Hyderabad and the check in staff were more than unprofessional. First they said my carry on bag and laptop bag should be no more than 7 kgs which was wrong. Later when I asked them to show the baggage restrictions, they went back saying it's okay. I had only 1 check in bag and it weight 1 kg more. I thought they would allow it since I had only 1 check in bag but they made me take out that extra kg and check in my carry on as second bag. Finally I asked for an aisle seat and they said the flight was full. But when I boarded the IAD flight I was rather surprised to see quite a few aisle and window seats. So rather than being a great experience, I would say it was a mediocre one because of the Hyderabad staff."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew great. Enough food at proper times. Plane clean"
Cons: "Wish they had earlier check in for a 777 flight."
Pros: "SeatsPrompt service"
Pros: "very nice but long hours"
Pros: "Cabin, boarding"
Cons: "Transit through Abu Dhabi is a pain"
Pros: "Kind of similar to Indian food if possible. Thanks"
Cons: "Leg room not good"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "The worst airline experience overall. AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. I actually got yelled at by an air hostess because I accomodated an elderly couple to sit togather and I sat on next seat over. Not a common sense airline. The Abu Dhabi airport was hot as hell. Yes, inside the airport terminal was super hot, close to 90 degrees.... Emirates is far superior Airline than this."
Pros: "staff were great"
Cons: "a little bit of a late departure"
Pros: "flight on time easy custom clearance at Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "food, perhaps could offer alternative for dinner."
Pros: "Improve your food standard"
Cons: "Not all my boarding passes were issued when I left my final location. I was told I wound get my final boarding pass at boarding. I then had to wait in a lone line at my final flight and nearly missed my flight."
Pros: "the Kul-Auh was fine on the A330, food average."
Cons: "Refreshment service was minimal"
Cons: "Faulty Seats. Had to change seats thrice. luckily, the flight was not that full. Seats were not reclining at all."
Pros: "All seats had power outlets"
Cons: "Plane was older than expected. Food/service was nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Service provided Plane was very clean and neat Very few people on the plane Arrival on time"
Cons: "We were asked to stand for boarding. And instead of having us board they boarded first class and handicapped people. I understand these people have the right to board first. However, if you know that you have more than 20 handicapped to board first do not have an entire zone of people stand for 40 minutes"
Pros: "All crew members were 5 star and so friendly! They checked many times on everyone, coming along with water often."
Cons: "The attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. very old on flight - dress warm!"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Pros: "Loved business class!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, there was enough leg room to where it wasn't uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "I really loved the blanket,socks and all the other accesories they provided on board!"
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "Both ways not consistent in time When flight delayed in Abu Dhabi they treat you like Specially Etihad airways service is very poor. . Never again"
Pros: "nice plane"
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
Cons: "Our flight was more than an hour late causing my father and I to miss our connecting flight. They had tickets ready for us when we got off our first flight. With very little explanation we now had to wait 5 hours for the next flight which ruined all our plans for our arrival destination. On the next flight my father and I were no longer sitting together and the plane ran out of food. I was disappointed."
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Pros: "Food and hospitalityu"
Cons: "Seating was too narrow"
Pros: "Crew service was OK,"
Cons: "They make too much fussy about the ledge weight even it was few Lbs. over. they select the worse sits in the plane for my family. Very last row of sits. the worse site in the plane. even though we were the first in the line during the checking. This was the first time was with Etihad."
Pros: "Support staff were extremely helpful at the airports crew worked hard to make sure everyone was looked after very enjoyable flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
