The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger.

The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."

They went so far as to page missing zone 1 pax several times and asked people sitting on gate area which zone they"

Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"

Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."

Pros: "Many movies (entertainment) I got front seat with leg space (comfort)"

If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Pros: "In time me ,food ,clean"

Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."

Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."

Pros: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."

Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

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."

Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."

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."

Cons: "Baggage handling was poor"

Cons: "Less fog in SFO"

Cons: "Food was below average"

Cons: "The security staff and their approach and way of communicating"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"

Pros: "On time performance"

Pros: "Everything was fantastic all services was really awesome. It was my first time to flight Cathy and i was amazed"

Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"

Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."

Pros: "For flying economy for 15 hours I can't imagine it gets much better. The food was great, the entertainment was great as well. The staff was quick to do anything you asked. While you don't have all the space in the world, you're still not packed in like on US domestic flights."

Pros: "Best meal service ever, my husband never eats airplane food but gobbled up the dinner and the breakfast served. Seats were comfortable, beverages were readily available, one of the best airlines in the world."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "sea food"

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: "Prompt departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Lack of leg space and the food"

Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."

Pros: "Food and entertainment library was good"
Cons: "If your someone with mild restless leg syndrome, go business class or the leg room package or you will be miserable."

Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"

Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."

Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."

Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"

Pros: "Never flying with Etihad before, but it really impressed me with its roomy aircraft, friendly crew, well-rounded and creative e-entertainment and fine food for its amazingly affordable price. I was somehow selected by the airplane for an upgrade flying to Bangkok which even elevate all of my experiences above. A great layover program definitely recommended!!!"
Cons: "Flight attendants in the economy class could be more attentive and walk around more frequently to check up passengers needs and passing out waters. Need more care to the food sanitation especially open water because I had later diarrhea after drinking it. Could be more organized for lining up different seating zones onto the flight, also seat arrangement is a bit off because bothe times I was asked to switch seats for couples and families w kids."

Pros: "MUTTON WAS EXCELLENT"
Cons: "SAME MOVIES BOTH FLIGHTS"

Pros: "Was not rendered the service inspite of being charged"
Cons: "Custormer services"

Pros: "correct temprature flight crew was good food was good"

Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"

Pros: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"
Cons: "On board staff not responding not friendly"

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."

Cons: "Transit through Abu Dhabi is a pain"

Pros: "Very courteous and professional crew"

Pros: "On time, entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort was HORRIBLE on 777. Next leg on A320 was tons better."

Pros: "Service was great, check in was easy. Planes are roomy enough for economy seating. Food was decent for airplane food."
Cons: "There was a delay due to poor weather. Although I was still able to make it to my connecting flight in time, they automatically switch my flight due to my bags not having enough time to be transported to the plane. As a result, I was stranded in Abu Dhabi for 12 hours. In fairness it's not the airlines fault and they did provide a hotel and shuttle bus for my short stay. What added to the frustration was the fact that they waited for the shuttle bus to be completely full (with people sitting in aisles) before taking us to the hotel. We got there too late for dinner, since all that waiting around resulted in a two hour trip for what should have taken 20 minutes. Since we had to leave so early in the AM, we didn't get breakfast either."

Pros: "Every thing is perfect"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"

Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"

Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."

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: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the A380 is super quiet. Cabin crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster with tickets issued in the wrong names. Also It wasn't until the night before flying we realised they'd booked our 3 month old daughter on a separate flight!"

Cons: "plane was an older model a bit noisy inside"

Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."

Pros: "Bad services over all"
Cons: "Lemo services"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, greeted us with a smile, and were there to help when needed. They were helpful when the flight got delayed because of fog."
Cons: "The food was bad. Requested for Asian Vegetarian Meal on Etihad website but was served the vegetarian option. I also heard a passenger complaining that she requested for a vegetarian food but was given a meal with chicken."

Pros: "the crew was good, unlike NY-AUH flight where some crewmembers were arrogant bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "zone boarding should be smoother, but people still try to skip the line"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"

Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"

Cons: "1 piece of luggage was missing from flight EY218 on 18 June 2016. Wheel of one luggage was broken when the luggage was received at the belt after flight EY 218 landed at New Delhi"

Pros: "Terrible airline company. It’s a ripoff!"
Cons: "Honesty. Ripoff!"

Cons: "Felt more like a domestic flight than an international"

Cons: "My entertainment system was not working, so was my seatmate's."

Cons: "Not being cancelled and delayed"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything. Bad business class food. Old movies. No inflight service."

Pros: "Boarding was organized"
Cons: "Vegetarian food wasn’t great"

Cons: "Flight delay announcement could have been made much earlier"

Cons: "Worst business class seat in the air. Departed 90 minutes late due to mechanical issues"

Pros: "Crew is ok, accommodating, entertainment system ok, food ok."
Cons: "level up on the service, I think MH needs to take a second look at the whole company in terms of culture and level of service."

Pros: "Crews were good."
Cons: "Seats were small and quite uncomfortable. luckily it was a short trip. If travelling long distance I ll have to consider a different airlines."

Cons: "Cancel last minute and no compensation given, how rude it is."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No control of children on group tour, allowed to yell and run around. Express Immigration pass not available"

Pros: "This flight nothign"
Cons: "Major delay, should have offered passengers water or beverages. Food was very poor, no assistance for transfer on late flight."

Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."

Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"

Pros: "Excellent as well!"
Cons: "Everything good as well."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Whilst the main meal was ok, as far as breakfast on the LHR to KUL sector was concerned, by the time I was served my preference was no longer available. The crew member who served me made no attempt to see if another colleague had my preference available."

Pros: "Overall is great"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good on this flight . The entertainment was good I managed to get a good sleep as well."
Cons: "The beer offered was in a pre poured glass I could have asked for a beer from the drinks trolley however i wanted a vodka and tomato juice I couldn't see any so didn't bother asking"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."

Pros: "On time. Good food Good flight attendant service"

Cons: "The boarding process from at Langkawi airport could have been better if more staff are to deploy to do the processing.As the que is not in one line, it could create misunderstanding among other passengers."

Pros: "Quick on and off boarding."
Cons: "Food was average at best."

Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."

Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"

Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "2h+ delay"

Pros: "Food and hospitality"

Pros: "Larger seats"
Cons: "Food was below standards. Really need to improve."

Cons: "I request for extra water but I was just given the glass which was on my tray. The Stewart told me he would come back but never did... not very nice One Air Asia, sûre you have to pay for the drink but you don't stay thirsty, and finally ticket is much cheaper..."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."

Pros: "Despite recent tragedies that led to loss of life and aircraft, the flag carrier of Malaysia seems to be well on the road back to good health and prosperity. This is a win-win situation all 'round. From being re-booked to an earlier flight by their impressive ground staff to excellent in-flight service and airmanship during the ride, the experience was truly one of the nicest airline experiences in recent memory. With improvements at MNL coupled with this fine experience, I now have another option to choose from when traveling by air both within SEA and beyond. Kudos to all."
Cons: "Though not MH's fault, having to queue for nearly 2 hours at KLIA to clear immigration formalities was an extremely rude welcome back here, considering that it took me less than 30 minutes in June to clear formalities at the "Budget Terminal.""

Pros: "Smooth flight with usual good in flight service. No issues during flight. check in very smooth and baggage collection very quick"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food is not good"

Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"

Pros: "Boarding was easy with less passengers."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty. The seat cushion seemed not clean. There was a greasy spot not cleaned."

Pros: "Easy to get my boarding pass at the Changi airport. Seating was nice. Not many passengers in this flight."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty."

Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."

Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"

Pros: "Efficient check in"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."

Pros: "Staff are courteous"
Cons: "Departure was delayed an hour"

Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "It was freezing on the first flight and although I gave requested for a drink twice this was never brought to me. The Flight attendants were rude and not helpful."

Pros: "Flight was efficient & comfortable. Crew was friendly & helpful."

Cons: "I never got to take the flight. Tried to cancel multiple times with VAYAMA prior to 31 March, but they never responded."

Pros: "Routing convenience if you are heading to Kuala Lumpur."
Cons: "Business class service falls short of other comparable airlines. Extensive auction of business class seats packs the cabin resulting in full fare passengers not getting a service representative of the class fare. Wines offered could be better."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
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."

Pros: "Our plane was late coming from Bangkok. We had to run in KL to catch the next flight. We did not get our luggage when we arrived in Bali. Still don't have it after 24 hours."

Cons: "The airline lost our backpack raincover and did nothing to help find place a claim"
