Pros: "I got a very good seat."

Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Cons: "The movie selection was not the best. There were a lot of choices but not that many newer popular ones"
Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Cons: "Dirty washrooms."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Pros: "The staff is friendly and attentive. Food has been flavorful and consistent in quality. Blankets and pillows have been clean. The energizer juice was an excellent option."
Cons: "The cleaning crew was in a hurry and there was a used cotton ear swab in the remote armrest. The tray did not close snugly back when closed up. The remote buttons were not quick to respond and needed to be pressed firmly and slowly. The food menu needs more lighter options. The toilet could use mouthwash addition."
Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Pros: "Very very clean plane."

Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."

Cons: "In the B10 gate of Doha airport are only 15 chairs and we were around 100 persons waiting to open the gate. It was uncomfortable In the flight Doha Phuket wi-fi did not work in the first economy sector. It was a big problem to us, it was necessary to go in the second part of the economy sector to stay over the wifi. The crew did not solve the issue."
Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"
Pros: "The plane was steady on both flights I went from Kuwait to Doha to DAR. It would be good to note getting a visa in DAR is not a quick process and make sure to bring USD with you as they only take cash."
Cons: "The food wasn't particularly my taste of food, but was still decently prepared. Also note the grapes have seeds, interesting as I am used to seedless grapes in the USA."
Cons: "UNCOMFORTABLE SEAT IS BUSINESS CLASS, VERY OLD AIRCRAFT. LAZY CREW, ASKE FOR A BLANKET AND TOOK 2 HRS TO GET ONE ONA 4 HR FLIGHT"
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."

Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."

Cons: "Manner of Airport staff is very irritating. They consider passangers as their enemies and behave accordingly."
Pros: "Good service"

Cons: "The airline needs to work on the human touch(crew). I did not understand why the immigration were questioning foreign travels for no reason. Lastly can’t reach the customer care number always gets disconnected."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."
Pros: "Generous with alcoholic drinks and exceptional service. I'm an Irish man who likes to drink, so this was a big one for me. The staff were super friendly as well and were always doing something to help. 5 stars!"
Pros: "Nice lounge. Good food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was late, may not be their fault"

Pros: "Menu choices were surprisingly better than I thought. It had Western, Chinese and Indian vegetarian. Good work. Keep it up !"
Cons: "Part of the travel was delayed by 2 hours (SIN to COLOMBO) on 22 Dec 2017. Online check-in is bad. I cannot change the pre-selected seat because all shown taken. Must be handled at the counter. So what is the point to do online check-in."

Pros: "La atención excelente. La comida muy buena. El abordaje y la entrega de equipajes a tiempo."
Cons: "14 hours connection time and they don't offer hotel/meal accommodation that airlines like Qatar Airways do. I inquired about the hotel within the airport and it costs $300 for 8 hours. Ridiculous. There is no place to sleep properly in the airport, I saw people laying down on the floor."
Cons: "The airplane broke from Abudabi to Delhi with 4 hrs delay."
Cons: "Foord service poor overall"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
Cons: "Warm beer"
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."

Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."
Pros: "Very think good"
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "I bought a one way from Los Angeles to Kathmandu. I had a 16 hour layover in Dubai. I went to the Ethiad help desk upon arrival to inquire about my gate. I was given the info I asked for, and to my surprise a voucher to a five star hotel and two meal vouchers at the airport----Complementary!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Etihad is the best airline on the planet. Certainly the best of the ME3."

Pros: "The entertainment system was top notch and the plane was beautiful. Everything was comfortable and nice."
Cons: "We had a huge delay for security purposes. Which is OK, I am not giving mediocre ratings on that front. But instead because throughout the many, many hours that we were waiting for the plane to be rechecked, we were not offered even water. Throughout the waiting, it was the middle of the night and a lot of the food shops in the airport were not open. The crew knew that we were going to be waiting in the security area for many hours, even peanuts and water bottles would have been welcomed after the six hour delay."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "i did not get my luggage yet"
Cons: "Major delay in boarding. Then we had to stop at Mumbai for hours. No clear explanation was made. They didn't provide us wifi, we couldn't reach our families to let them know."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "Boarding was easy even though it started late, it was organized. Once I got on the plane I wasn't waiting a long time to get to my seat because they seated the people sitting in the back of the plane first. There is a huge selection of movies, tv shows, and music."
Cons: "They have 2 food options and they're just ok. There wasn't very many drink options either."

Pros: "Service and integtity"
Pros: "Friendly & attentive crew"
Cons: "Departure delay (10 minutes)"
Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."

Cons: "Better and open communications with what's going on. They were helpful and efficient but needed a clearer and more concise communication line to get us mobilized and ready to go."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"
Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"
Cons: "Losing my luggage"
Pros: "Everything flowed smoothly."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have inflight entertainment within our seatbacks."
Pros: "Not much. Probably only the check in from.Phnom Penh. Haha checked through to Melb"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online to secure reserved preferred seat section. No boarding passes printed on long haul section. Fight delayed, arrival delayed. No terminal parking for aircraft, which meant catching a bus to terminal. Not impressed at all. Why bother with frequent flyer class if it's not going to apply at all as business flyers."
Pros: "The plane was nice and new. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Toilets could have been cleaned more frequently."
Cons: "I wasn't aware I was in Malaysian airline, I thought it was silk just as it was when I arrived... could of been a little clearer but other then that everything was great"

Pros: "Crew seems friendly."
Cons: "Business class food is not that good. Menu were not provided so when time to take the order, we have to decide quickly."

Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."
Pros: "The flight was fairly typical. However, it left on time and arrived on time. This was a positive."
Cons: "As usual, the flight was completely full. Everyone carries on as many bags as allowed and there is no bin space for all the luggage. I bring only my briefcase and had to search for space."
Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."

Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."
Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"
Pros: "The seats are good recently"
Cons: "Delayed for around 25mins. Boarding is getting worst recently; either chaotic or implementing the new stupid policy of boarding according to seat letters."
Cons: "Lost baggage on direct flight"
Cons: "I received an eticket confirmation by email, but when arriving at the airport for checkin, Malaysian airlines did not have the ticket in their system"
