Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Entertaintmebt was poor, and quality of screen was bad"
Pros: "It's ok for business class. Crew and boarding is Pro smooth."

Pros: "My seat was dripping from the top and I got my shirt wet while I dozed off!! The cabin crew gave a bundle of tissue saying, "pls help yourself""
Cons: "The flight condition should have been better and the Etihad should learn how to help guests reach their destinations on time"
Pros: "Quick departure"
Pros: "every thing from the new plane until arrive it was amazing"
Cons: "nothing every thing i like it"
Cons: "Foord service poor overall"
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: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Pros: "Short Leg, Crew Happy, pilot very informative, food was good, until the next flight (long haul) I got the same food. 2 seats together at the very back row. Checkin and boarding were fine"
Cons: "The toilet flushed when I was still on the toilet seat. Happened again on the long haul sector. The take a very long time to switch on the entertainment and turn it off as soon as decent commences- so if you have air traffic problems - it could be off for an hr before and after takeoff and landing. unnecessary as most people have their own headsets as well. We"
Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
Pros: "787 comfort /"
Cons: "Limited movie selection/ outdated newspapers/ food quality"
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "Though I missed the Outbound flight, was given a seat on the next available flight and offered a free meal in the airport. Seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Food was average and with no variety."
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"
Pros: "My special meal was privided in time."
Cons: "No toiletries on a long flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi. I paid $ 175 for preferred seat. My purse was stored somewhere before taking off which I couldnt get back for many hrs because staff was on 2 hrs break."
Pros: "Good time Baggage smooth service"
Cons: "Food Crew service"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment, the fact that the airline staff could speak English and that some of them were actually helpful"
Cons: "The upkeep of the airline, some of the airline staff to treat all passengers as one as I noticed more than an unusual amount of passengers were favoured over one another. A minimum flight of 5 hours was served with just the one meal. We were served lunch at 930 am on one flight. The observations in economy aren't as important as business class. Only if we could all afford to travel on business class."
Pros: "Cabin, boarding"
Cons: "Transit through Abu Dhabi is a pain"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The bathroom were not at all clean and not maintained. The options for food was very limited to no choice."
Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."
Cons: "Bad food"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed. I have been flying from DAC using various international airlines, none had this much systemic delay."
Cons: "Seats. Aurconditioning, entertainment"
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."
Pros: "All was fine."
Cons: "While all was fine a the food could have been a little better, especially when it is a 14 hour flight."
Cons: "They served me wrong food, I ordered veg but when I opened it was non veg lol"
Cons: "Food was okay..."
Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."
Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "They ran out of toilet paper 3/4 in. Disgusting."
Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"
Pros: "The entertainment system was top notch and the plane was beautiful. Everything was comfortable and nice."
Cons: "We had a huge delay for security purposes. Which is OK, I am not giving mediocre ratings on that front. But instead because throughout the many, many hours that we were waiting for the plane to be rechecked, we were not offered even water. Throughout the waiting, it was the middle of the night and a lot of the food shops in the airport were not open. The crew knew that we were going to be waiting in the security area for many hours, even peanuts and water bottles would have been welcomed after the six hour delay."
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "The fact that the flights left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats were too uncomfortable, very hard and too small. The flight attendants were not very attentive. They did not make eye contact but when they did they were very nice, but with no eye contact it was not easy to get their attention."
Cons: "Major delay in boarding. Then we had to stop at Mumbai for hours. No clear explanation was made. They didn't provide us wifi, we couldn't reach our families to let them know."
Pros: "Crew was incredible"
Cons: "Same thing with entertainment"
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "On March 20, 2016, Baggage conveyor system not operational causing great inconvenience and needed more Check-in ticket agents. Food was OK except the Breakfast or last meal before arrival at Lahore Pakistan."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and uninspired. There is no place to request meal when checking in. I wanted to change mine from LVML to AVML because the quality of food on my onward trip was terrible. Sadly, you do not provide that option on your website and my call to Etihad did not do the trick. Same shabby food. Plane was more full than in my onward trip - smelly people, loud kids that prevent sleeping, narrow seats with poor leg room. Will NEVER fly Etihad again. I will happily pay more for one of the better airlines. And I will avoid flying through the middle east - many of your patrons do not understand the value of deodorants or lifting the seat up to use the toilet. Ugh!"
