Cons: For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean.

Mediocre 2.3

Cons: I was very disappointed with the service that was received on the trip from Sydney to Johannesburg. Firstly, the flight was delayed by over 3 hours due to an air conditioning mal function which made the cabin too hot to board. I understand that engineering issues happen from time to time but I would have expected Qantas to be able to mitigate such an issue in a timely manner or at least provide their guests with an indication of the delay earlier or compensation (airport meal voucher or Qantas club entry etc) to wait out the delay. After the aeroplane had apparently cooled down to an acceptable temperature, there was a subsequent announcement that there would be a further delay as the catering had been spoiled in the hot cabin. Again, sounds like poor planning/ organisation that I would have expected better from Qantas especially over the holiday season. Secondly, the entertainment system at my seat did not work throughout the flight. Again, I understand that engineering malfunctions occur but on a 14 hour, day time flight, it certainly made for a long journey and I was extremely frustrated and disappointed that this service was not available. Thirdly, the meal option that I selected had run out each time the mea cart arrived at my seat - again bad luck. Lastly, due to the flight delay, I missed my connecting flight. I had to purchase a new ticket on the later flight even after the Qantas staff in Sydney had promised that any missed connections would be taken care of. This was a very unsettling and frustrating start to the holiday.

Okay 5.3

Cons: Caboj crew were unfriendly and bordering on being rude. The basic rule of any service is to smile but when you've cabin staff whi look grumpy on a 7h flight that speaks of poor training of cabin staff. Etihad needs to do much better to retain customers on this hot segment.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: The seat 21A was absolutely horrid inducing claustrophobia due to limited space all around on a full flight long delayed on ground after taxiing for departure.

Cons: Etihad needs to be more sensitive of passenger comfort and avoid being so stingy with economy class seats (21A)

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
