Pros: "Superior standard"

Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "Raise the cabin temperature"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing!"

Cons: "Next time in B787 Dreamliner"

Pros: "SQ always the best service"

Pros: "The crew Were exceptional ."
Cons: "If The seat recline could go down a bit more innpremium economy, that would be perfect"

Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Change the food menu, boring with the same menu"

Cons: "For better leg room in business class go for the bulkhead seats"

Pros: "Extra touches and super pleasant and courteous staff."

Pros: "On time Smooth landing and take off Airport was beautiful, nice clean toilets Lovely and polite staff on board Food was okay Nice range of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Short and sweet. Flight left on time and landed about 15 mins early. Crew was wonderful"

Pros: "everything in suite class"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"

Pros: "Good seats with great screens. Usb, headphone jack that works with regular headphones, and a regular power outlet! Tray tables upgraded overall and have a mirror behind a slide. Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"
Cons: "would like regular water bottles to be available for drinking"

Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"

Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"

Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Interior felt dated given all the awards the SQ has received for its planes and service, but everything was functional. Overlooking the interior, flight was superb. Very happy."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "Modern Aircraft , good seat ,Crew friendliness"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Cons: "Our flight to Bali was cancelled due to the volcano eruption. We did not receive any compensation, but Singapore/Silk Airlines told us they were able to get us a flight home to LAX instead, but that it wouldn't be until the next day. We spent money on a hotel and food and waited until the next morning, got to the airport early for check in only to find that Singapore/Silk had in fact, given up our seats that they had promised us. They said that we now would have to wait another day just to get a flight from Singapore to LAX. We asked to speak with a manager, and eventually were able to get two seats due to cancellations. This was intended to be a very special and romantic trip that was essentially ruined. Since no one could have anticipated that the volcano would cause cancellation, we should be refunded for our flights. We are so crushed that we did not get to go to Bali, and now we may NEVER get to go because we are out of money. At the VERY least, the leg of our flights from Singapore to Bali, and Bali to Singapore, should be refunded. We are extremely disappointed."

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."

Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."

Pros: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"

Pros: "The hot towels. The meals were good. The entertainment screen was great, and a great selection of movies and TV."
Cons: "Don't change anything!"

Pros: "We did not die in a hellacious ball of flame Aviation incident!"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating (required for bassinet) Row 41, my seat was practically in the aisle. No where to put my feet without getting trodden on by everyone! Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"

Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Hot cabin. Chairs makes so much movement when the back of the chair where the folding table is moving. Chair movememt of the seatmeat is felt in the same rows of seats."

Pros: "The hot towels, the legroom in economy, exceptional service. The helpful crew who don't hesitate to help with luggage. The choice of entertainment. The convenience of a direct SFO to SIN flight with a fast connection to Indian cities."

Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."

Pros: "Staff on board were lovely."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."

Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."

Cons: "old facilities"

Cons: "Best service"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."

Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"

Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "On line flight experience"
Cons: "The food has to improve especially they have to provide fresh food"

Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"

Pros: "Excellent meals. Pleasant cabin crew. Good inflight entertainment system and choices. Concerned about short connection in Doha but no problems. Good signage."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."

Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"

Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Pros: "The bag with socks and toothbrush with paste was a nice touch. The flights operated on time! The seats were fairly comfortable for coach class."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Service, attentiveness, food."
Cons: "lack of ability to pay to upgrade even though there was plenty of empty business class. (Almost all seats were available)"

Pros: "It's was good"
Cons: "The plane from Qatar to Nairobi new modern plane needed"

Cons: "Seats are too small"

Pros: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"

Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"

Pros: "Very kind & friendly crew. Boarding was smooth & flight was comfortable. Food was good considering it's airline food."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"

Pros: "Food was better than expected. Entertainment as good as any major airlines. Planes were new and modern."
Cons: "Flight attendants are not friendly and rude. Seat had a problem reclining."

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "the crew was professional and efficient on board the plane."
Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"

Cons: "Shopping items available."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants."

Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."

Pros: "Crew was really good and the seating was quite okay"
Cons: "Seating distance"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "The food was amazing, and the cabin crews were all very nice people. I would love to use Cathay Pacific in my next trip. Also, I loved that they provide a lot of diverse movies from all over the world, along with good music lists."
Cons: "Honestly i think there are not much space for each passenger."

Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Ok perfect will do it again"

Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "seats could be more comfortable for long flights, better food choice"

Cons: "Seats unconfertabale"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."

Pros: "Over all the customer service was accommodating."
Cons: "Never received a notification for flight delay. Online communication was never established"

Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."
Cons: "Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!"

Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hours"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seat on up position are too straight"

Cons: "Delayed departure"

Cons: "Plane was old and not Super comfortable. Also no WiFi!"

Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."
Cons: "They are a bit strict on carry on luggage weight but not that big of a deal."

Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."

Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "Fast and on time"

Pros: "Food is good"

Pros: "The organization of the boarding was well done. The plane was comparatively roomy, the servers were efficient."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed and although the stewards were efficient, little things like running out of noodles and running out of the chicken option on the dinner menu marred the service."

Cons: "They asked me to change my seat, but when we asked to sit together with my husband, they were not able to accommodate it"

Pros: "First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!"

Pros: "The crew are very nice. They maintain the toilet area clean and with paper supplies. I love the availability of having a hot noodle soup in between meals."
Cons: "No slippers, toothbrush & toothpaste for economy passengers. Some airlines will give this automatic due to long hours trip."

Cons: "Row seat is tight"

Pros: "...except the plane was dirty (dirt all over the ceiling above me, long black hairs on the pillow they gave me) and one of the stewardesses had a bad attitude with me. Otherwise it was great."
Cons: "Plane not clean"

Cons: "Broke my luggage"

Pros: "The service was very nice and the ice cream with meals was a nice touch"
Cons: "Plane was a bit dirty - there were big dirt streaks on the ceiling above me, and I saw more on the ceiling on the other side of the plane as well."

Cons: "Hated all the checks at the airport - felt like a criminal. Crew didn't seem very happy to be there."

Pros: "Smooth, delay-free travel from take-off to (smooth) landing on the tarmac! The pilot has some skill to make it like a gliding landing without bumps!"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific does not participate in TSA PreCheck."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Service was stellar!"

Cons: "Mediocre online check in experience! Their website does not accept payments for "upgrading" to an exit row seat. At the time of check in the only seat left available was an exit row so I could not proceed. Also, their airplanes are not equipped with Wi-Fi - quite unfortunate when you're flying 16 hrs from HK to NYC!"

Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"

Cons: "late boarding."

Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"

Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Boarded with delay"

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The guy in front reclined for the whole 14 hour flight so I didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant."

Pros: "Beautiful plane and it was well kept. Nice service. Very soft landing."

Pros: "Very impressed with the quality of the entire experience."
Cons: "Wishing there was free wifi connect."

Pros: "Everything the movies the airline staff and having the electric plugs to charge ur phone"

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"

Pros: "On time is no good way off due to dark clouds. But laying back passengers should be limited their distances pulling back causes others very unpleasant ty"

Pros: "good experience."

Cons: "I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance."

Pros: "The tv size, charging station, foot hammock"
Cons: "No delay,"

Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"

Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."

Pros: "Very friendly crew."

Cons: "For such a long flight should have given us more water. But were responsive when asked."

Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"

Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."

Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"

Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."

Pros: "It got me home in one piece safe and sound, what more can you ask for."

Cons: "The gate displayed on the boards in the departures area did not match the actual gate (17C). Confused a lot of passengers as the gate displayed was through the international area. Limited seating at the gate."

Cons: "Flight delayed no updates in lounge then was rung to ask where i was as bostding closed. Told girl on phone on way bit thete was no flight status on tv in lounge... basically didnt believe me.. rude!!"

Pros: "I liked the grilled chicken and the beef selection"
Cons: "The actual greens in both salads were weak; soft not crisp and cut in large chunks nose that were hard to handle and not flavorful."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Cons: "Unnecessary delays"

Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."

Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"

Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas."

Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."

Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped in economy."

Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"

Pros: "Good flight. Staff was excellent and attentive."

Pros: "Felt looks after by crew"

Pros: "Known quality and reliable service It was all right."
Cons: "Entertainment is bring your own screen if you want to see the programme"

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"

Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"

Pros: "I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes."

Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "No GF food choices offered - always try asking for a bit of fruit if what's on offer doesn't suit."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "I liked receiving a menu of food options. I liked the movie selections (although there were better option from JFK>LAX than LAX>SYD)! Crew were friendly."
Cons: "Those with special meals receive their food way earlier than the rest of the plane."

Pros: "Entertainment Is always good"
Cons: "The five hour delay. Would have appreciated a phone call so I didn't have to get to the airport so soon. Food used to be so much better"

Pros: "Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system"

Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."

Pros: "Good meals, friendly service. Very comfortable"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."

Pros: "Good trip"

Pros: "Quiet"
Cons: "Bathroom s were dirty"

Pros: "Nothing, they loose my luggage, so I want my luggage back in 1 day or refund my money"
Cons: "They loose my luggage."

Cons: "Too many boarding delays"

Pros: "Crew was cordial"
Cons: "Check-in - it took 2 hrs to check our bags"

Cons: "Clogged sinks"

Pros: "Good news, the checking in process was so delayed as there were so many people, they made sure all who checked in, got on the plane, no hitches on the lugguages either. I got my lugguage in Singapore."
Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."

Cons: "Overall cabin is too cold"

Pros: "Everything is fine and good"

Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."

Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding not good no line turebel"

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive stewardesses. Beautiful too"
Cons: "The internet connection "Wi-Fly" is very weak. Data rates are outrageous. $4.95 plan is basically good for 5 minutes, $11.95 plan maybe lasts 10 minutes. Very disappointing"

Pros: "Nothing! Except the fare was low."
Cons: "This time The experience was super horrible! Took almost 1hr 30 mins to get boarding pass. I had 2 suit case one was 24.5 kg and other one was 25 kg, they wanted me to pay $132 for each bag or take out stuff to make it 23kg. Never met someone that horrible who doesn’t want to let it go. I requested the wheelchair and they dont wana give it to me, I had no choice but to call their supervisor and eventually got wheelchair only from jfk to abu dhabi. Worse experience."

Pros: "Flight was 5hours late, how can it be good!!!"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."

Pros: "The business class lounge at Abu dabi the cabin crew"
Cons: "The cabin crew rudeness was unbearable"

Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food is terrible and they always run short of food."

Pros: "SEating was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was bad! Crew was not very informative on asking about food options! Movie options could be better!"

Cons: "Terrible service, lost all my luggage with no recall on where"

Pros: "This time the service was ok"
Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"

Pros: "You know how it is. It's a long haul international flight and you're flying economy. NOTHING is ever good."
Cons: "Seats are super narrow, wifi did not work, food was quite poor."

Cons: "Head will hit the wall when using sink in toilet"

Pros: "Staff was very courteous"
Cons: "Only one wheel chair was provided during the flight to NY"

Pros: "Well mannered behaviour of all staff on board"
Cons: "No staff officers to assist people like me who came on wheel chair. I was in the queaue for nearly 2 hours, Some of the counters were not manned at all."

Cons: "Though happy there was kids meal provided seeing pasta in all 3 meals not very appetizing. Sweet side dish were mediocre at best. There were no snack available or provided for kids except the meal box. When requested milk for my kid some milk from flask was given which I was not comfortable giving to my son.. there were other issues but my sons comfort was the most Concerning"

Pros: "We bought ticket from New York to Islamabd round trip ticket and fly on August 22nd. After changed plan in Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, there was rain in Islamabad and all flight diverted to Lahore, so our Etihad air plan diverted to Lahore too. once the weather cleared in few hours , all air line did fly back to Islamabad a 50 minutes flight but unfortunately Etihad air way force everyone out of airplane by force. They used police to beat up passenger very bad and drags them out. Then put all passenger in old Bus to Islamabad a 5 hours trip. One of worst air line in my life. We bought ticket for Islamabad not for Lahore. They should take us back to Islamabad after rain stop like other air line did but only Etihad air way did not fly back and beat all passenger by using police on them, it took us 34 hours to get home."
Cons: "Etihad air way should apologize to each passenger and Reimburse them 1/4 of the ticket. otherwise lot of people will give up this airline . 2nad their meal was very bad. bread was not fully cooked. they cooked only Hindy food. not every person is Hindu. It welcome to providr hindu food when travel india but when it travel to Pakistan or Bangladesh it should name it Hindu meal."

Cons: "AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. The staff was OK only. The entertainment was sub par. I recently flew Delta domestic flights and it had many newer English and Hindi movies than on this flight to India, go figure. I think even Air India may have newer and many more movie choices than this air line. I flew my sick father with Catheter business class but the restrooms in the business class were same small pigeon hole size. We could not even fit inside to empty out the bag. Don't buy business thinking of the luxury of space. It is a myth."

Pros: "On this leg the general courtesy was great especially one particular hostess, Nikita. The movies and certain music on the menu were a good range."
Cons: "The food! 12 hours of mediocrity in a aluminium foil. My wife and my hand held consoles were not working and hence we couldn't use our reading light besides some other functional limitations. An elderly lady sitting in front of me had a bad bout of chills because of the cabin temperature (most probably) the staff never followed up on the help that fellow passengers had given to the lady. My prior two flights with this airliner were much worse My A380 experience in the Emirates has been MUCH more spacious and great meals with a predictably jollier staff. Qatar airways can perhaps even top that. The only thing I feel etihad has over these better rivals is the convenience of the US Immigration. As a NATIONAL CARRIER of the UAE, I'm quite unimpressed and disappointed."

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was horrible"

Pros: "Etihad posted so many meals and beverages on flight. My baggage arrived as planned and scheduled. All places dearest when scheduled. Overall very good experience."

Pros: "Excellent customer service and clean planes."

Pros: "Overall everything was excellent"

Cons: "No other options but mostly spicy"

Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "1. Food choices from NYC to Abu Dhabi were only lamb or Indian cuisine (chicken kofta or veg), no seafood option. Very few extras were given with the meal or between meals (no fruit, candy bars, peanuts, etc. on the flight). 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."

Pros: "The staff as helpful and attentive"

Pros: "The Airline light staff were polite and very professional! I felt accommodated and my questions were answered in a timely fashion. Did I also mention their entertainment system on board is epic lol"
Cons: "Make make an announcement to fellow passengers not to leave the lavatory a complete mess."
