Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Cons: "Internet bad"

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."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"

Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"

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: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

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: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "price and comfort"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"

Pros: "As expected"

Pros: "Getting off the plane after 24 hours of nonstop crying children"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."

Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."

Pros: "Aircraft cleanliness staff everything."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall good"

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"

Cons: "When at the Dubai plane got delayed for 3 hours they did not make the announcement and nobody knew what is going on. That main man at the counter did it behaves the way they should. More then 3 hours delay with 500 people have lots of questions. Need to answer with lot of patients. The manger behavior was not appropriate with one lady with the kids."

Pros: "الشكر للاماراتيه على مجهوداتها الكبيره"
Cons: "الطيران الاماراتي ممتاز جدا والخدمات ممتازه جدا جدا تحتاج شي بسيط وهو تقوية الواي فاي فقط طيران جميل جدا"

Pros: "Everything else was good."
Cons: "Landing at JFK was not smooth. One of seat was defective."

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Pros: "I like every think"

Pros: "The staff was nice, pleasant and attentive!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"

Pros: "flight was cancelled"
Cons: "almost missed my overseas connection"

Pros: "Friendly , clean service"
Cons: "Keep it up"

Pros: "Hawaiian has great crew."
Cons: "I thought I had upgraded to premium economy, but when I checked in, there was no seat assigned. I have to go back and check my records. No option for gluten free."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Wasn’t able to get comfortable in coach seat to sleep"

Pros: "In flight crew was good and emergency exit row seat was very roomy. Ticket counter agent was able to fix the computer errors on my reservation."
Cons: "Constant issues with reserving and paying for premium seats and the system releasing them. Each incident took almost one hour of phone conversation or 30 to 40 minutes of waiting at the check in counter to resolve."

Cons: "Every movie or tv show cost 8 dollars. Other airlines have at least a few free choices. i was very disappointed"

Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "Limited outlets for a 9 hr flight. Have to pay for a movie"

Pros: "The fact they changed the seating for me and my girlfriend (originally booked together for a side two seats in a 2-4-2 setup, then our reservation was removed)."
Cons: "They removed our reservation for window seats together. No in flight entertainment because everything was pay to view."

Pros: "Staff was patient with those not paying attn. Coffee was actually hot."
Cons: "Food was awful, even for being free. Check in was Disorganized, chaotic, and difficult to follow as NO signs. No FREE entertainment for 9 hour flight."

Pros: "Great food and beverages"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to see movies. There were hardly any free movies, tv or games. Very disheartening when other airlines include it with your ticket."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "They gave very little food and it wasn’t very good. Husband was a vegetarian so he couldn’t eat it. 11 hours with only a snack and drinks."

Pros: "The ride was smooth and schedule Is on time."

Pros: "The staff is friendly and well presented. The aircraft is clean and you get plenty of little freebies like snacks, pillow, and blanket. They provide complimentary meals as well. I’m sure it’s incorporated into the price of the ticket but for coach, the airline does not nickel and dime you. The pricing is on par with all the other airlines but the service and amenities without adding on extra fees make it my airline of choice for flying to Hawaii. You have the option to purchase additional things like snacks and alcohol but you do not have to in order to make it through the flight. Hawaiian Airlines provides everything to make the experience enjoyable. My wife and I have flown on Hawaiian Airlines many times and have never had a bad experience. I would consider them the gold standard in relation to the price of a coach ticket."
Cons: "It’s a really long flight from the East Coast of the United States to Hawaii. It’s a shame to live so far from one of your favorite places on earth."

Pros: "Overall"

Pros: "This crew on the Ny bound Hawaiian airline flight 50, were true ambassadors of "Aloha spirit"...They were friendly and anticipated my needs."
Cons: "Window seat.. bcuz of the curved design, my comfort level was "just bearable". Windows are low and had to almost sit on the floor to look out of it. I'm about average height 5'8" and 225#. FOOD- Flavor was ok but I only had 1-2"×1" of chicken and 1 floweret of broccoli. Prisoners eat more than that.."

Pros: "Crew very friendly. Plane clean."
Cons: "The charging plugs did not work. The entertainment choices were not good and were limited. There was a charge for each selection, not even a one fee for access throughout the flight. This is terrible for a 10hr flight."

Pros: "Very friendly service, still serves food, made sure passengers were comfortable at all times."
Cons: "Could've had electrical port for laptop use."

Cons: "I am a HA MasterCard holder & whenever I get a boarding pass online, they charge me $25 for my 1 piece of luggage. Their policy is a complimentary 1 bag but it doesn’t follow through! This is deceitful!!!!"

Pros: "Very nice staff, very decent food (a little bit small, but tasty), good entertainment options, comfortable and quiet cabin"
Cons: "Was reassigned aisle seats with no explanation for both legs of my journey despite paying for window seats."

Cons: "Paid $600 for the better seats and they refused to give a full can of soda. Didn't get much of a window seat, the window was closer to the person in front of us. There was some guy on the plane in the same section as me and my husband and they gave him full cans so I guess it's who you know. I couldn't even eat the food, it made me nauseous. They arrived 30 minutes late and we almost missed our next flight. They didnt even ask for those with connecting flights to be let off first. Checked luggage handle was torn off by staff. Not worth the extra cost or going out of my way to book with Hawaiian. I won't go with them again."

Pros: "Hawaiian Chocolate (Only 1 piece though)"
Cons: "Entire food service is just a joke. I think they should tell the passengers straightforwardly that there is going to be no food served on this flight."

Pros: "Boarding was quick. Flight crew was efficient and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay. Movie selection is the same round trip from from New York"

Pros: "Nothing- they really do suck."
Cons: "There crew sucks"

Pros: "Great staff, loved the free wine and the gift from shutterfly. The blankets are nice, light and large."
Cons: "Very loud inside the plane. No fan overhead. All entertainment was only for purchase. Food was not very good but the fruit in the morning was very fresh. It was also a very bumpy flight and I would have appreciated if I received more updates from the captain, however, a lot of people were sleeping so that would have been intrusive. I suggest a way for the captain to write a message to passengers updating them on the flight that they can access on the TV so there aren't as many announcements on overhead flights"

Pros: "new plane, seats were comfortable crew was competent"
Cons: "food was an insult. white rice, boiled broccoli and carrots plus something that vaguely resembled chicken pieces in a goopy sauce. no other meal choices, e.g., vegetarian meals, available which is unacceptable. too many unnecessary announcements during a red-eye flight when people are trying to sleep lost bag from Honolulu to NY. Received it two days after my arrival into JFK."

Pros: "Very good landing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Decent seat with good leg room, friendly crew"
Cons: "Absolutely terrible food...no complimentary entertainment $8 to watch single film or tv show"

Pros: "Nice service, smooth flight."
Cons: "Food is given but usually pretty bad. Also no free entertainment. Movies and tv shows all cost money."

Cons: "There were tv's in every seatback, but there was literally not a single movie or show that could be watched for free. Fine to charge for some/premium content, but crazy to have nice tv monitors with absolutely none being used for entire legs of very long flights."

Pros: "Friendly. On time. Small meals on long flight."
Cons: "You shouldn't have to pay to watch a movie"

Cons: "I bought these tickets about two months ago. There was no option for seat selection. Despite the fact I bought two tickets when we finally got our boarding passes we were twelve rows apart. I tried to call Jet Blue (the actual airline) and they said they couldn't do anything over the phone. I went up to the gate and they said sorry, it was a full flight. When the cabin door closed, the seat next to me was empty, but we were taking off so I couldn't at that time move my wife. When they reached cruising altitude and they turned off the fasten seatbelts sign, I went back to where my was sitting but she was asleep."

Pros: "Enjoyed staff"

Pros: "options for vegetarians"
Cons: "the food, there was no vegetarian option. The first plane was very small and uncomfortable but the return was good."

Pros: "I loved the service of Katie. She was awesome and funny and extremely nice. My experience was terrific because of her hard work as well. I am a United States Marine and I will definitely be recommending this airline. Thank you !"

Pros: "The crew, from pilots to attendants, was extremely professional and pleasant. The airline did an excellent job turning what could've been a nightmare situation to a minor delay. Providing snacks and dinner vouchers while we waited for a new plane was a nice touch. But too many mechanical and/or electrical issues with this airline."
Cons: "Too many mechanical and/or electrical issues. Maintenance not up to par perhaps? Flight was delayed 2.5 hrs due to computer issues on the flight to Hawaii. Then had to suffer through an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure on the flight back to New York. Was not a fun experience watching the fuel being dumped into the ocean for an hour."

Pros: "Crew was great, food was pretty good. Hit some turbulence and it was handled smoothly as possible."
Cons: "Touchscreen display barely responded to touch, would randomly turn on while I was trying to sleep."

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service to account for severe delay and cancellations. No partner airline service. No back up flight crew. Worst flight experience of my life."

Pros: "I got an entire row to myself"

Pros: "that i could get that flight that quickly + cheaply"
Cons: "tight legroom, pay tv, 1 compl wine drink, no choice in meal"

Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "They broke my luggage at the counter in front of my eyes and did not even ask me if I wanted to put a claim. Luggage fees are not announced anywhere and THERE IS a luggage fee. When complaining that it was not said anywhere, the agent put my friend on stand by list and did not say anything... and finally, at the boarding gate, seats where available, no wait list! I booked a direct flight but because a restroom issue, flight stopped and 2-hour delay was added. any movie is the price a movie theater ticket $8! For an 11-hour flight, it could be free or at least few old movies should be available in the complimentary package."

Pros: "Virgin airline carrier, Comfortable and cost flight"
Cons: "Staff a little unfriendly"

Pros: "The crew was good and the flight smooth"
Cons: "Had to pay to view television"

Pros: "Very polite staff"
Cons: "Baggage fees and you need to pay for entertainment"

Pros: "Staff were thoughtful and attentive at all times"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The one cup of free wine"
Cons: "Had to pay for movies on a ten hour flight. Unheard of."

Pros: "The flight attendents"
Cons: "There should be a vegetarian option for the meal."

Pros: "The service was great; the food was great..love the chairs in the cabin. the two window seats were okay."
Cons: "Cramped on the way back with the four middle seats. I felt like i was crammed in a sardine can"

Cons: "You expect more from business class"

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: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"

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

Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "No food I ask three time for coffee and tea still not get it Staff so rude I don’t know why staff was rude if you don’t have food let us know not get rude ."

Pros: "service"
Cons: "Meals could be improved"

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: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I travelled from KUL to JFK with transit at Abu Dhsbi. Nightmarish transit in Abu Dhabi. Three intrusive security screenings (why three?). At some point they take away your boarding pass and make you sit in a hall for about half an hour (with similar 'criminals') with no access to bathrooms without telling you why. Then they call your name to return the boarding pass ( which was a problem for me because I am hearing challenged). Not sure this special treatment is reserved for just brown skinned travellers"

Cons: "Crews attitudes + the long flight"

Cons: "Seat and space"

Cons: "Food was awful. There was no other choice than Paneer the indian food."

Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."

Pros: "A380"
Cons: "Limited food options and quantity."

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

Cons: "Crew was not as attentive as Emirates Airlines."

Pros: "مجال الكراسى"
Cons: "المضيفين"

Pros: "Ample storage available in window seat. Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private."
Cons: "Boarding very inefficient- rushed out of Premium Lounge to go to the pre-screening for return to US - finished and at the gate sent back to a nearby lounge with just enough time to sit down for a few minutes."

Pros: "Excellent crew"

Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than Qatar. Staff was very friendly. They handed out more water than other airlines, which is much needed on the long flights."
Cons: "They caused a lot of us to miss our connecting flights bc of hours-long delays. I had to stay overnight in Abu Dhabi. They put me up, which was nice, but I was sad to miss the first day of my work trip bc of it."

Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "All aspects"

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Very noisy with loads of kids, crying babies"

Cons: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"

Pros: "I like Etihad airways."
Cons: "Food really needs to be upgraded."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Child screaming for 12 hours straight. No action taken to resolve."

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

Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."

Pros: "Best airline out there, by a long shot Was given a vegan food option when booking!"

Pros: "I enjoyed all aspects of the flight except the food."
Cons: "I did not likeep the food. It was oily and didn't have a good taste."

Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"

Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."

Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "The gate was closed. people sitting on floor"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Great Headrest Neck Pillow Comfy Headphones Large Toilets"
