Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."

Cons: "The chicken sandwich was horrendous. I saw multiple people take a bite and then put it down and not eat the rest. It tasted terrible."
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Cons: "No flexibility in flight changes"
Pros: "Courteous crew members Nice food tray containers"
Cons: "Portions were a little too small for me"
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."

Cons: "Movies are the same since last six months. Business class place to keep the feet is too narrow when its flat bed. No space."
Cons: "As I missed this connection flight we were re routed to Cairo then Larnaca. We landed at 6:30pm and didn't get to our hotel until 8:30. Missed my friends wedding. It was a disaster. As a Qatar airway member I feel let down and am disappointed with the lack of interest shown by the airline in relation to an apology of any kind. What can be done about it. I've booked a trip to be a part of my friends special day and instead get to the reception as guest start leaving. I also get fined from the car hire company as they cancelled our hired car due to a no show and have ended up with a less inferior car as that's all they had left. No real apology given si is like to know what are you doing about it?"
Pros: "Service of the inflight crew and food quality."
Cons: "Too short layover time in Doha. Had to run from one gate to another to make connection"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in the flight from Toronto to Abu Dhabi. I was served wrong food. The food was tasteless. The crew was giving on half glass of water when asked for. It felt as if they were scared to give water to drink"
Cons: "You expect more from business class"
Pros: "Quick boarding, minimum queues."
Cons: "Everything. What an absolute joke of an airline. 1) Flight attendant spilt a half a bottle of water on me and didn’t even apologise 2) Same tv shows and movies as 5 months ago. 3) no eye shades 4) entertainment turned off around 20-25 mins before landing and all headseats collected 5) staff"
Pros: "The flight entertainment system was fantastic."
Cons: "The flight had onboard wifi which was awesome to be able to be online during the flight but it did lack the level of service expected. Everything on the flight was fantastic except the wifi which kept dropping out"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Seats didn’t work. Both seats couldn’t recline. Not nice on a 13hr flight! Gluten free meal was very average. Poor entertainment compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "We lost an iPad on the plane and I called and filled a o several times it absolutely no response. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Flight was punctual. A380 is a nice plane to fly on, but see other comments. Entertainment choices are good, but see other comments."
Cons: "On arrival at Sydney, discovered my bag damaged. The metal cage that holds the handle slider had been broken so they must have really thumped the bag. Re windows and cabin lighting. Flight left Abu Dhabi at 21:50, landed Sydney at 17:50 next day. The cabin was kept in darkness until 3pm Sydney time / 9am Abu Dhabi time. This only gave us 2 hours of daylight on Tuesday, terrible in trying to adjust to a new timezone!! Even going off Abu Dhabi time, why wait till 9am to turn on the lights and raise the windows? No-one sleeps that long and it creates too much darkness. Please turn on the lights and raise window shades a few hours earlier to help our body clocks adjust. The view of the world outside the window is also interesting! Re entertainment system: with some airlines you can use the entertainment system immediately on embarking but with Etihad you have to wait till airborne. Considering boarding begins an hour before departure, that is a long time to sit waiting without being able to use the entertainment system. Re comfort: I don't know why, but the Etihad A380 seats have this weird head rest on one side that can't be folded flat. I found it quite annoying. Also when you recline the seat, it also goes forward scrunching you towards the seat in front. I found the Emirates A380 seat a lot roomier and more comfortable."
Cons: "There was a airplane change that delayed the flight by 4 hours. No compensation was offered. Entertainment volume was too low even at max level"
Cons: "It’s an old flight with improper seats and seating arrangements ..flight has dull ambience.the food menu most of items were same as of my losangles abudhabi flight .."

Pros: "The crew was gracious and the dinner delicious."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "My seat had a problem initially it was not reclining once they fixed that later the seat got deflated. It became unbearable to seat. The crew tried fixing it for about 30 mins and they then they changed my seat. Ideally I would want refund for the flight as my experience was extremely bad"
Cons: "Crew was not at curtious they were busy among themselves. It would take them long to respond to the call."
Pros: "My special meal was privided in time."
Cons: "No toiletries on a long flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi. I paid $ 175 for preferred seat. My purse was stored somewhere before taking off which I couldnt get back for many hrs because staff was on 2 hrs break."

Pros: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"

Pros: "Crew was good. Food was OK."
Cons: "While going Airport staff was not at all good at Chicago airport. I had a carry on bag, which I had been using in all other airlines as carry on for last couple of years and never was told that the size is not right. I was asked to either check in carry on as extra baggage and pay $300 or put my carry on stuff in my other checked in baggage and pay extra for over limit $120. And I have to trash my carry on of $80 value. I was not at all happy. I noticed in the flight so many passengers have the same size carry on, which I have to trash. On my return journey from Delhi to Abu Dhabi I was talking to a woman in the security line, who was sharing the same experience and she told me that they charge her $400 for one extra suitcase. To me that was shocking as how come I was asked $300 for extra checked in bag and she was charged $400. No idea what kind of policies Etihad has for extra baggage. I would like Etihad management to pay attention to the airport staff dealings with customers."
Cons: "At most times crew on the aircraft were busy talking amongst themselves than helping out passengers on the flight."
Cons: "Ground agent at Melbourne manager says "sorry, you can't carry your CPAP machine. When I said that there were no questions when I carried it from NY to Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi to Melbourne two weeks ago, he says that the policy was changed last week. Gave a hell of a bad time but finally allowed. These people don't know the policies and just harass customers."
Pros: "The flight and the food was good"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all to narrow and short distance you can not eat or set or sleep"
Cons: "I was teared very bad while in Cochin Air port. over weight, was the issue, well I told them let me remove some stuff to reduce the weight. They didn't allow me to do that, made me to pay 200 $. didn't worth it . I was ready to throw some stuff in the trash.staff at Etihad Counter was arguing and show no professionalism end of the journey found my 2 pots were broken. Crew was nice ."

Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"

Cons: "I didn't like the flight. It was old and smelly. The crew was also not so polite. I asked them for Kids meal when i booked the flight but later in the flight it was not available."
Pros: "More food option"
Cons: "This ar line has no absolute respect for its people. It seems because it is a fight going to India, which apparently it is not an important country they can do anything. The worst gate (I do not know if this is the air line choice or not), there was no line to boarding, there was not enough seat at the gate and one of the people at the gate was insisting that travelers should sit. The crew was rude to the Indian people, however they themselves were not acting properly. The bus came to get the people from the gate to the plane in Abu Dabi was really bad."
Pros: "Crew was really nice, it was clean and prompt."

Cons: "Business class boarding could have been more organized. Was sent to the gate too early from lounge"
Cons: "My entertainment system was not working, so was my seatmate's."
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: "The Malaysia Airlines crew hospitality is world wide known and I experienced it myself during this flight"
Cons: "I sit in 2K of A350-900. Though it is known as a throne seat, there is an error on the installation of this seat. The foot rest that comes up and supposedly joined with the ottoman to make up the flat bed is too long so this seat never can actually go to full 180 degree mode."
Pros: "The MAS stewardess was really nice & helpful"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"

Cons: "Changed gates 3 times . No one knew what was going on. Late flight. Request for wheel chair not fulfilled. Very tight transfer. Very far to another gate when transiting from kL to Yangon. Ridiculously far. My first n last time with Malaysia airlines."
Cons: "Connecting Time"

Pros: "We paid for extra luggage for check in but we were allowed to carry them on board due to the short stopover duration of the connecting flight. Thanks for the much needed flexibility!"
Pros: "Food provided in Mumbai to KL flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "In flight from Mumbai to KL, requested orange juice was never served. Insufficient toilets in aircraft. Appeared that toilet numbers were compromised with additional seats so to gain more profit. Also toilets far away from the seats. Long queues 3 x 3 seating arrangement is hopeless for 5 hour journey as person at window needs to disturb both middle and aisle seat holder."
Pros: "The seat I got was certainly comfortable enough."
Cons: "The staff was not enough particular in delivering appropriate food to correct people. In flight KL to Auckland, vegan food was served when Indian vegetarian food was requested. Long queues at boarding in KL."

The airplane was an old 330 with shitty bathrooms, and I can't forget how one of crew keeped knocking on me in the toilet and he actually opened the door and said nothing at all which pissed me off,because I work for airline company and I had been in many once before but that behavior is amature once from supposedly experienced Crew member. Anyway save your money and time and avoid this airlines."

Pros: "The plane was nice and new. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Toilets could have been cleaned more frequently."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours resulting in us missing our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to China and then Los Angeles . Malaysia airlines did not apologize or help us with rebooking our flights or offering hotel accommodation. They just left a family of five with no flight, stuck in Malaysia with no options of getting home. . Flight crew had very hard bumpy landing on both legs of flight and maybe they need to go review landing protocol so that we don't have to have a hard rough landing"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad landing,"
Cons: "When they served satay they didn't ask which I prefer beef satay or chicken one even they asked it to other passengers. After finishing the dinner they took forever to clear a napkin so I couldn't find dinner was finished or not. It was midnight so I wanted to sleep as soon as dinner was finished. When boarding they do security check. It's OK. But why don't they use business class gate even there was the one?"

Pros: "Just fly."
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff"

Pros: "spacious seat at row 5"
Cons: "The fish is merely edible. No IFE available."

Pros: "Flight to KUL from BKK was a fairly new 737 and had a new entertainment system. It was clean and looked well maintained. Nice ride."
Cons: "Return to BKK from KUL was on a 737-800 that looked like it was ready for the scrap heap. Very dirty even on the outside of the plane. The backs of the seats were torn and spots from drinks and dirty hands on the backs of the head rest. All the magazines were WELL worn and one had gum between the pages. The table top had part of a meal left on it."
Pros: "The equipment and level of service on this MAS flight was excellent. Food was delicious. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Though it wasn't part of the flight, the business class lounge at KUL is just a step below the excellent facilities at airports like HKG. Just a step though, mostly in the shower area. Food options were great though. And take advantage of the Massage Spa within the lounge."
