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."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "All service and cresws are friendly"
Cons: "Just keep it up"

Pros: "Good price. Long flights were not at all crowded. US preclearance in Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Entertainment. Food was so-so."

Cons: "Poor service"

Pros: "Good sized seats and new aircraft, AUD airport is very pleasant and customer friendly. The vegetarian snack sandwiches are very delicious. I wish if they could offer them in every meal and to toddler passengers."
Cons: "I buzzed the light for service 3 times and not once did the attendant come and check on my needs. Our attendant was not customer friendly- infact I don’t recall her smiling once throughout the 13 hour journey. Overheard her being stern and rude with other passengers. I specifically asked the crew to deliver my stroller in AUD for transit since we were flying the next day and they didn’t fulfill our request. Luckily AUD airport has strollers so we used one and took it to our hotel. The fact that Etihad doesn’t provide hotel accommodation for 14 hour transits is beyond ridiculous. Really disappointed in this lack of arrangement for long haul flights."

Pros: "Food was great ."
Cons: "My chair was not comfortable."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."
Cons: "Flight attendants were super ultra professional."

Pros: "USA customs done in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "I will never fly or recommend etihad to any one of my friends or family."

Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "So i was with ticketing requesting for seating, and she said run run your flight is leaving , i did not get proper seat and i ran to find out it was NYC flight and not DC. I asked more than one Eithihqd personeel and they did not know the difference bewtween Nyac flight and DC flight . Then came back to request for seating and they again made believe my security will be declines if i waste timein requesting seating. Got a flight between 2 males for a 15 hour flight and a run across the airport with a heart problem . I will never fly Eithihqd and also will not recommend to anyone"

Pros: "good environment and staff"
Cons: "Food needs to be improved."

Pros: "Friendly and professional. Always with a smile."

Pros: "Customer service very good"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"

Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."

Pros: "Every thing was good"

Pros: "Connections on Etihad. Abu Dhabi airport. Service and hospitality. On time flights and easy check in. US immigration in Abu Dhabi was a breeze."
Cons: "Food was terrible and insufficient."

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

Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "On the dreamliner flights they have tried to cram a ton of seats in so if your over 5'8 you'll be very cramped with your knees under the seats and a strange headrest jammed I to your shoulder. I fly about 20 or 30k miles a year in economy and this is easily the most uncomfortably designed seat I've been in. More over the staff was incredibly dismissive and rude to all I witnessed then keep a older woman waiting for 45 mins for water and then dismiss her when she asked a second time. The check in staff was no better."

Cons: "Seat was too tight. No foot rest"

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Horrible food and beverage service as mentioned above"

Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"
Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"

Cons: "They only had vegeterian options for the most part even when the expectation is that they would have at least some meat choices. They ran out of the meat options quickly. The crew was very nice though and arranged for a chicken meal at the end"

Pros: "Good media system. Great staff."
Cons: "Bad food. No flying nannies. Layover was long."

Cons: "The Food is bad."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with head rests and neck pillows Good food choice and no wasteage with plastic cutlery or portion sizes"

Pros: "Awesome service, smooth flight , great staff. Very spacious"
Cons: "My luggage got damaged, but it's being taken care of."

Pros: "Economy class is okay in terms of space set-up. The US immigration organization and process in Abu Dhabi is perfect. We save a lot of time when landing in Dulles airport (Washington DC)"
Cons: "I was surprised by the crew attitude; almost arrogant! First bad experience of this kind travelling with an airline from the Gulf :-("

Pros: "Service is excellent, seats are comfortable, food is tasty and the entertainment system is top class. To add to all of this the Crew is really friendly and helpful."

Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."

Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."

Pros: "Timing was good, crew was friendly, flight was delayed but made up most of it on the way. Food wasn't anything extraordinary but still worlds better than American carriers."
Cons: "Soo cramped on the Dreamliner. Would not recommend for a short flight let alone the 15 hour torture chamber I was stuck on."

Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."

Cons: "All but one of the flight attendants, who unfortunately was not in my section, seemed rather terse and far less than kind. Simple requests from fellow passengers were regarded as inconvenient intrusions. The gal in my section would act like she had not heard the requests and then when the passengers would repeat themselves, she would snap, "Please wait till I've finished my service." She rarely would make eye contact with anyone while doing, "her service" and acted like it was a major inconvenience. It was a long flight but the crew on the way to New Delhi on Jet Airways were exceptional and made the flight as pleasant as possible. The Eithad crew lacked this attitude."

Cons: "There was a chicken sandwich offered in the middle of the flight that is by far the worst airplane food I've ever had"

Pros: "Crew are usually lovely and helpful with even the most difficult passengers."
Cons: "The food quality is sub par and the entertainment is not adequate compared to other Gulf airlines. I enjoy traveling and did not enjoy the quality of food and actually ran out of movies to watch on a 14 hr flight! I think their focus is on Business and First class. I like this airline so wish it wasn't so."

Pros: "Very comfartable"
Cons: "Internet acess is to expensive"

Cons: "I've never heard of double booking an assigned seat! Don't ever fly with etihad, not worth it!!!!!"

Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"

Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."

Cons: "Myself and my wife were assigned seats away from each other. Business class seating was not as good as in some other airlines that I have travelled. If husband and wife and family are travelling together on a long flight it should be possible to seat them close to each other"

Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"

Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dedicated line for First @ TSA Pre-Clearance at Abu Dhabi. This means you have to leave the lounge hours earlier than otherwise incase there is a massive line @ TSA."

Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."

Pros: "The plane was spacious with great features. The crew was friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Food is not great. Coffee and tea service is bad. Coffee is very cold. They are rVery picky about cabin luggage. If if .000001 lbs are more they want us to take small item for example a pen from the bag. Due to this itself I do not want travel in future.ude if u ask something."
