Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."
Cons: "Please contact me immediately!"

Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."

Pros: "Service was excellent and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "While many other airlines are cutting down on their service quality and amount of food on their flights, Japan Airlines has done the reverse: offer excellent food and great service at every tier, including economy. We took a flight from NY to Tokyo and felt like it was one of the best long haul flights we have taken."
Cons: "angled flat seats."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff with excellent amenities ie: check in, seat space, food quality, movies to watch, music, ...etc."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about here. Both trips to Tokyo, Japan--to and from Japan have been enjoyable and drama free."
Pros: "FA service with a smile. All pleasant and nice to deal with. Windows are button controlled."
Cons: "Economy meal is not that great. Boarding should be by zone or by seat number."

Pros: "Politeness. It definitely stands out."

Pros: "Check in process and counter Agents were very helpful Seat spacing good for economy food was good"
Cons: "Movie Selection"
Pros: "Very nice quality crew and consistent service. Very helpful at desk check-in. Compared to US airlines, is much prefer Japan Airlines!"
Cons: "The flight was late to board. The crew was polite but not overly friendly. I wish they had an earlier flight so we didn't have a 15 hr delay in Narita but I guess the itinerary is what it is."
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Pros: "Loved everything including entertainment selection and all the snacks left out as self-serve throughout the flight. Left and arrived on time from JFK to Narita"
Cons: "I'm picky about food and preferred the food to Tokyo on ANA to JAL. However, I take some responsibility for not making a special request pre-flight. I will do so for trip home."
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."
Pros: "The flight was normal and without problems. As a frequent traveler throughout Asia that is always welcomed."
Pros: "Polite service, comfortable flight, no delays"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."

Pros: "That it was comfortable."
Pros: "cost performance"
Cons: "non-flat seat"
Pros: "Free WiFi in flight!"
Cons: "In my email confirmation says Business class tickets but the boarding cards were "J" class which was not Business or economy so we had to fight to get in the lounge. They apologizedon't many times but no compensation, seats were first row but not first class, business, economy, or premium economy. They said it's called "J" class! You still get 3 pcs of luggage and pay business class price! Never JAL again domestic, maybe international or Never ever!"
Pros: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "My flight was on time everything went perfectly and there was nothing I could've done better everything is great."
Cons: "i'm kind of tall so I would've liked to of gotten to see with more space especially since there are more seats on the plane available. But other than that my flight was good and I was happy that everything went according to plan."
Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "Extremely nice flight attendants, little toothbrushes in the bathroom, pretty decent meals. I would definitely flight with again."
Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."
Pros: "the crews were very professional and caring. the food was the best of all so far"
Cons: "the only thing was this flight was delayed and we missed the flight at LAX, but JAL reserved a hotel room near by for us so that we were able to refresh ourselves and relax till the next flight. thank you JAL!"
Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."

Cons: "Becouse of flight delays, travelers have to make sure they booked their ticket having enough time to thier connection ."
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Cons: "just did not like the baggage policy for carry on"
Pros: "I am very pleased to travel with Qatar airways. Qatar airways and Singapore Airlines are the best companies."
Cons: "I was a little bit annoyed with the staff at the Doha airport at the boarding gate because she did not let me get in to boardin in priority even though with my privilege club card, I do have to insist after the call for zone 1 to proceed for boarding."
Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"
Pros: "First it was a brand new airplane and only that but it came with good food selection and enough spaces for tall guys like me ."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"
Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "It was actually on time."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Should use 380 craft"

Pros: "The airline in general was good, provided a kit with socks, ese plugs,toothbrush and other essentials,good movie choices, overall customer service. They had free wifi which was amazing!!"
Cons: "We took 2 long flights one from morrocco to Qatar and Qatar to dallas. The food on the flights was not the best, one the first one they ran out of chicken meal and only had fish left which was gross, for such a big airline you would also think they give a snack in between meals but they do not.also after giving you the food it took a long time for them to pick up the tray which I thought was unusual"
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"
Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "They make you close all the windows and outside lights after each meal. Want you to sleep most of the time so that you may not get up and stroll around or ask the crew any extra drinks, ice creams etc."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the bathrooms there was only one type of tissue paper beside the toilet paper. Adding a thicker paper towel like most airlines do would be better so that passengers can clean up any water splashes as soft tissue is not effective for this."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."

Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Cons: "lost baggage"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"

Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."

Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"

Just wished was able to say goodbye to him. Fl EY455 9/3/19. He was heading for Beirut and me to LHR. JUST wish for an ETIHAD CONNECTION. Thanks."
Cons: "The waiting lounge had no info on the outside. We came early, was seated close to the door and I served as the info person."
Pros: "The flight was surprisingly empty compared to flying to Abu Dhabi. I had an entire row to myself. I was able to lay out and sleep peacefully without worrying about the traveler in front of me leaving their seat back. Highly recommend Etihad airways!"
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: "More cabin staff only 3 attendants for a packed flight Long wait for another plane to land so people could get on Late landing Generally uncomfortable due to full plane and inconsiderate people May not use again"
Cons: "Very quick through immigration and customs. Then a short cab ride to city."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."
Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"
Pros: "Got an upgrade to business class"
Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Pros: "A380 is a great plane to fly in, very roomy. Entertainment was good but could be improved by allowing access while plane is still on the ground. This is significant on these long haul flights as boarding commences about an hour before departure."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. The gate showed as "open" sometime before boarding actually commenced which was confusing. The seats have a very strange headrest thing you can't move which I found a bit annoying. Otherwise seat was good."
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, comfort, ground staff."
Cons: "Food and entertainment are average. Movies are old."
Pros: "Fast track"
Pros: "the nice crew- the relative speed of boardinf"
Cons: "compared with Emirates, the movies/Tv choices are very limited and in addition, only available -after take off and stop being available 30 min before landing. very disaappointing compared with emirates when we can start watching content from the minute we are on the plane until the very last minute. also, the plane had very limited space dedicated to stretch legs compared to other A380 from other companies."
Pros: "The entertainment is good but there could be a better selection."
Cons: "It took 2 hours to check in, literally was going to fall over but the time i got to the desk. There was a small child who screamed for about half of the journey."
Pros: "Pleasant SYD - LHR flight with a decent amount of room"
Pros: "Food service and seats"
Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con"
Cons: "Limited food options and quantity."
Cons: "Please, please, please Etihad, implement child-free zones on your flights."
Pros: "Only I like the cabin crew. They were very nice and very friendly. This is the only thing I like about the Etihad Airways."
Cons: "More than 9 hour stay with no hotel & no food voucher before 16 hours flight . When I requested the customer service person he was very rude and with very bad attitude even the person was behind me he said the same thing. The food was very bad taste during the flight,coffee and tea had a very bad taste. Orange juice taste very bad too. No personal kit was given during the flight. Over all very bad experience. Please coney my comments to Etihad Airways."

Pros: "Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private. Crew were very attentive; and supportive when discovered a friend was booked in business on the same flight."
Cons: "Etihad no longer providing pajamas to change into for long haul flights when you'll inevitably be sleeping. There's no bedding provided to make the hard seats more comfortable for sleeping. Need more storage for personal items."
Cons: "Again very. Very badly treated by etihad people"
Pros: "Professional crew. Looking good"
Pros: "Staff excellent on board Plane very high standard"
Cons: "Waiting 1.25 hrs to check in in SYD- with 10 and 12 year old children Check-in staff member unclear on passport requirements"
Cons: "Food is getting boring. Chicken fish or beef every time. Plane was old. Entertainment choice not good. Crew forgot to bring wine for the main course. It's about 50% of the standard of the A380."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seating is tight"
Pros: "clean toilets"
Cons: "breakfast food was more oriented toward near east taste than western tastes. Very bumpy ride,the pilots should have tried to go around turbulence or reduce speed,etc."
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!"
Pros: "The bathrooms were stinking after a couple of hours and the flush stopped working. Otherwise, good food, attentive staff"
Pros: "the crew of the airline and the staff at Abu Dhabi airport were overwhelmingly friendly and thoughtful and helpful. I am an oversize person which can make flying difficult in many ways. first, they never made me feel like I was inconviencing them by asking for help and then 2nd, when one of my neighbors decided to make a big fuss about it, they asked me if I'd like to move to a better seat (which I was happy to take them up on). I had a long layover and was given meal tickets to get food at the food court in the airport. Everyone was very kind."
Cons: "the boarding procedure was difficult at Abu Dhabi. We had to go up a staircase which felt insecure and didn't have a good railing to hold onto. I was not the only passenger who was having trouble."
Pros: "The service was good but sleepers not as good as other airlines. Another tight. And the entertainment offering is not very good. Movies TV etc"
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Pros: "Probably one of the more comfortable flights I've been on."
Cons: "We got rerouted through Singapore for an unscheduled stop, had a flight crew change which added 3 hours onto the flight which caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight to Bahrain. I did make the flight being the last person to board, but my bag did not."
Pros: "Very old and not up to date . Not enough choice ."
Cons: "Wider choice more current content especially movies ."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "They took a lot of time for check in .. although i made the online check-in"
Pros: "Food & Upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "I thought the food was awesome, and not just for airline food. The vegetarian that I had was excellent. Crew was very friendly and helpful, plane was clean, seats comfortable. On the long flight we were all supplied (even in economy!) earplugs, a neck pillow, blanket and earphones. Everyone has their own little screen and the TV and movie selections were good, like having cable TV in the air, but no commercials."
Cons: "The ear plugs looked pretty cheesy, but I had my own and never actually tried them. I could always use more legroom, but that is a standard complaint I have with all airlines."
Pros: "Comfort on plane was good"
Cons: "I wouldn't fly Etihad again because they lost my bags twice"
Pros: "Crew were so courteous, elegant, professional and friendly."

Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch"
Cons: "The boarding procédure in Dublin requires à long walks in 3 différent locations. Should be ma de shorter"

Pros: "CRES was great"
Cons: "Many of us waited about 40 minute for our bags to show up in the reclaim area."
Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash."
Cons: "They missed the connecting flight the day before, so we had to fly out the next day on a flight that left ~1 hour late. I know the staff is doing what they can so I blame the execs making millions because they’re typically the real problem anyway."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! Best flight I've ever had."
Pros: "Big windows"
Cons: "Too cold during red eye"
Cons: "My economy plus seat wouldn’t recline!"
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Cons: "We didn't fly here"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to take the flight due to illness. Called Just Fly and airline for help - was on hold for hours. Both refused to help me. I am now out of pocket over $700. Appalling customer service by both airline and agent. Planning to report to the Better Business Bureau and travel authorities."
Cons: "Landed in Canada to let off a "sick" passenger, sat there for hours and after the pilot made countless excuses, including needing to refuel, needing a new route, and needing to de-ice the plane, he finally announced that we're headed all the way back to Newark for some unknown reason. Worst flight ever. Couldn't be any less happy. F*** this airline. Will never use again. Ruined my vacation, thanks a lot."
Pros: "Crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "Gate was changed to a gate much farther away. Flight was delayed for 4 different reasons all of which were unlikely. We left 4 hours late. On board the plane was freezing cold. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "Crew was outstanding . Boarding was easy. Ahead of schedule arrival"
Cons: "Return to terminal required a bus and then off loading like cattle for sale. Came in through maintenance area. One hour from landing to baggage claim. Terrible!"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "they gave a $100 voucher"
Pros: "Arriving in Dublin"
Cons: "Seat was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seat size in premium economy."
Cons: "Food and presentation were weak."
Pros: "An empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined further than all the rest and the new seats that United has installed are incredibly uncomfortBle especially for a long international flight!!"
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time and that the entertainment actually worked properly."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my husband and i had one option only and that was Indian vegan vegetarian dish. We were told that's all there was left. We gave back our tray. I don't mind going without food for a flight but my husband had surgery die to diverticulitis and can only eat certain food. The flight attendant said that she was going to check if there is anything left in first class but it took for ever and I become impatient as the light were turned off and people were getting ready to sleep. So I switch on the light and another flight attendant came by. I explained the situation but she came back with the same Indian vegetarian dish we turned away. After more frustration and explanation the Stewart came with the. Hi Ken version. I gave my husband my share and he was able to finally take his medication and eat the chicken with the bread. I only ate the ice cream and had a glass of wine. Later on the first flight attendant who served us the meal came with a couple of oranges and a bag of chips. Saying she got this from first class. I kept the oranges and gave her back the chips. Floghing with United is very disappointing to put it mildly."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays including on plane then everyone was kicked off. We waited more and they cancelled the whole flight and everyone had to scramble to get on anything available. I lost 28 hours of my vacation. They put us in a scary hotel in Chicago. I received a $200 voucher for further flights that doesn't even cover the cost of my unrefundable expenses such as car, hotel and tickets that were lost on my vacation."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "We made it to Dublin..."
Cons: "Crew was terrible, grumpy and not welcoming. Boarding was terrible, 4 hours late. No compensation, little apology. Food was awful. Couldn't really tell what we were actually eating. Actually hated this flight."
Pros: "I loved the butternut squash pasta. I plan on making this recipe at home. The staff was also very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and the person in front of me kept reclining. I had very little space to try and make myself comfortable. I am 110lbs, so I can't imagine how a larger person would feel."
Cons: "For an international flight, there should be more amenities like charger etc."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The crew kept coming around to give us snacks and drinks and "dinner". I thought we'd be left alone to sleep but we were not and the cabin lights were only off for about 2 hours on our 6 hour flight. It was an overnight flight so I assumed we would be able to just sleep but we were not."
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Would never fly this airline again felt like a number / a sardine in a can"
Cons: "Staff was awful and acted as if they were just going through the motions and didn't listen to me"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Pros: "Two meals, great staff, eventless flight"
Cons: "2+ Hour delay due to airplane issues limited space under isle seats for carry on bags"
Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."
Pros: "After being in the air for 4 hours without being able to connect to listen to anything, a gentleman flight attendant came to ask if I needed help. He then tried a couple different tools to try to help me. Nothing ended up working, but I appreciated him trying."
Cons: "Before the flight took off, I mentioned to a female flight attendant that there seemed to be something in the headphone jack and would like some assistance. She said that it wasn't the time to assist me with that (which I can understand), but she never came back to try to help. Once in the air, another women recognized that I couldn't connect and said she would be back. I am not sure if she forgot or if sent the gentleman flight attendant to assist, I felt like I wasn't heard at all."
