Cons: "Horrible service. The US part of the journey was fine but the rest was aweful."
Pros: "Aircraft was very nice and comfortable. Flight crew as friendly."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."

Pros: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Cons: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."
Pros: "New Dreamliner"

The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."

I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit.

Cons: "No food choices Food is bad No differentiation from other airlines Level was better years ago"
Pros: "Everything was well organized.."
Cons: "The layover from Karachi to Dubai is less than 2 hours. The flight from Karachi is always late n it makes me nervous that I might miss my flight for LA. It has happened to me before. You should maintain your punctuality in Karachi as well. Even the boarding process is extremely flawed, it is very frustrating. Plz maintain your reputation everywhere in the word!"
Cons: "they messed up my bag and had to wait 4 hrs at dxb airport to hv them retrieve it"

Pros: "OK flight"
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."
Pros: "We asked for an imodium and were deplaned and forced to pay $500 as a fine for being ill."
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."
Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."
Pros: "Food and staff's courtesy."
Cons: "Lot of rush at transit point."
Pros: "We missed the connection because the Istanbul airport is a silent airport and no announcement were made for boarding."
Cons: "Announcement from crew or reach out to people in front of gate would help. Also, the staff at Istanbu airport is so rude and have no respect for customers."
Cons: "We were not allowed to board our connecting flight and are stranded currently at the Istanbul airport and had to book our next flight with indigo as the staff closed the boarding ahead of time even though we were on time. Lot of shouting and crying by other passengers happening for the same reason."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better"
Cons: "Sit in the plane too tight"
Pros: "Same as the San Francisco to Istanbul leg. Great experience, just the effect of the flight delays and missing my connection."
Cons: "Better communication and assistance with luggage. I was told that my bags would automatically migrate to my new flight the next day, but they didn’t make it, and I am now in the process of finding them."
Cons: "Better seat."
Cons: "Too exhausted from the long flight. But really wanted to say - Never flying them again after my itinerary is completed. They have just lost any revenue they would ever have gained from me in the future."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was professional. The food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "It is too cramped in the toilets and seating area."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "The planets and stars we're aligned to provide an optimal trip. Price was a huge determinant for me...$800 RT Houston to Delhi just can't be beat. And, their arrival time into Delhi is so early (5: 20 am) that customs and immigration is a breeze."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The crew were all very polite and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Probably best economy class service and amenities and timings."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I was really thirsty and I kept asking for water. He should have just given me a small bottle. Also need more than 4 Bollywood movies. This was a returning flight after 2 weeks and it had the same 4 movies which I had already seen."
Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."
Pros: "I had only 70 minutes transfer time and had to spend almost all of that time standing in line to go through security after just arriving from another flight!! I ran to the gate and was the last person through before it closed. I asked about my two bags and was told they were accounted for. Hardly believing it but glad to at least have made it I boarded. When I arrived in Zurich, sure enough my bags arrived too! Was very pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "Though no fault of Turkish Airlines, having to go through security after just getting off one flight was stressful even if it might have been necessary. Almost missed my flight. The security area is not properly designed for accomodating many people at one time and the officials (actually two cleaning personnel) who did not speak anything but Turkish were manning the entrance. Even when I showed them my boarding pass they just rudely shooed me away!"
Cons: "Turkish Air lot my suitcase. I will never travel with them again"
Pros: "The food was better than on the flight from LA. But wine was bad to say the least. Rest same as in the Flight from LA."
Cons: "The same as above and misguided by crew with regards to connecting flight. We had a bad time catching this connection. Even after disembarking the crew outside sent us on a wild goose chase. Airline representatives should be informed and helpful, which was not the case. Insufficient helping of food. Poor quality of wine and Vodka."
Cons: "boarding was messy at IST"
Cons: "Boarding crew were rude and unhelpful. They didn't check IDs which became evident when a passenger complained his passport was missing and the plane had to return to the gate so he could go back into the airport to find his passport. Had it been checked before getting on the plane we could have spared everyone the hour delay. really this was is the worst service ever. Avoid."
Cons: "Delhi International Airport: Unhelpful representatives at both: Baggage Claim and at Operations center."
Pros: "Low engine noise and vibrations. Temperatures were comfortable"
Pros: "Polite crew, comfortable enough"
Cons: "Pack a meal and don’t rely on the airport at Istanbul for a grab and go meal beyond prepacked sandwiches. No options for lactose-free meals beyond the potato chips at the bar. In-flight food was awful- we had the no lactose meals."
Pros: "It was a very fine flight Kosher food was fine Only problem was very long lines at boarding and repetitive"
Pros: "The route"
Cons: "No one gave me water even if I asked, nobody came to me to ask my problem"
Pros: "Turkish airlines have always been perfect for me. This was yet another fulfilling experience with the services, the food and other stuff being extremely satisfying."
Cons: "Crew was. It helpful at all. They created more confusion and frustration. I spend 24 hours calling and talking to them in order to rebook the flight. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Pros: "The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well"
Cons: "Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good."
Pros: "I hated it"
Cons: "I am a non veg guy and during serving the foood they said ...they don't have Non veg meal ..I have to eat Veg only ..what the hell is this .. For water also ..I had to ask 3 times then they gave me when I request fourth time...it was terribly bad experience and I hated this trip."

Cons: "the smell of the airplain was very bad"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "The crew is very attentive, although at times lacks some foresight in dealing with passengers. The aircraft was quite new and clean. The entertainment system was outstanding and the food good, although a downgrade from THY experiences from a few years ago."
Cons: "The passengers on some Turkey--US flights are hilariously terrible. People getting up during landing, littering in the plane, clogging toilets, creating spills, NEVER listening to announcements made by the crew, etc. It's essentially a zoo. I sat by a bulkhead seat, and I had maybe 200 people push by my feet, step on them, knock around my shoes and TV console during the flight. It's a somewhat tiring spectacle for 10 hours on end."
Pros: "Food and entertainment system"
Cons: "Heat on the airplane."
Pros: "It got me to the next airport alive"
Cons: "There was not much to watch on tv and not enough alcohol"

Cons: "Bags took long to come out in JFK even though they had priority tags."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were great. The crew was good but..."
Cons: "...I could not feel the air conditioning at all where I was sitting in the back of the plane. I was literally sweating the entire flight. When I asked the flight attendants about it they muttered that they would take care of it and then never did. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "DIRECT FLIGHT TO ISTANBUL FROM MIAMI. UNFORTUNATELY I WAS IN A RUSH TO REACH TURKEY FOR A MEETING. USUALLY I PREFER TO GO THRU ROME WITH A FEW DAYS LAY OVER SO THAT I CAN HAVE BETTER SERVICE, FOOD AND PAMPERED TREATMENT AS BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE SHOULD BE. WHO CHOSE THEM TO BE THE "BEST AIRLINE IN EUROPE"?? AS THY CLAIM TO BE!! BLIND PEOPLE??"
Cons: "DAMAGED MY LUGGAGE EXTENSIVELY, THIS IS THE THIRD TIME BY THE WAY), KEEPS REFERRING ME TO AN INSURANCE CO WITH AN E MAIL ADDRESS THAT DOES NOT RESPOND, NO TELEPHONE NUMBER BY THE WAY IS FURNISHED EVEN THOUGH I HAD ASKED FOR, REPEATEDLY. -HAD TO WAIT TO PAY FOR BUSINESS UPGRADE SINCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE PERSON TRYING TO COLLECT OVERWEIGHT LUGGAGE PAYMENTS AS WELL AS UPGRADE PAYMENTS, WHILE KEEPING ME IN LINE FOR 45 MINUTES FOR A BIZ CLASS UPGRADE. AFTER I PROTESTED, A TURKISH LADY SUPERVISOR SMIRKINGLY SAID THAT I HAD TO WAIT IN LINE SINCE THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON SERVICING! GO FIGURE!. VERY TURKISH APPROACH I WOULD SAY. PASS THE BUCKET.. -NO CONCERN FOR BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE. PLEASE TELL THEM TO GO AND TRAVEL IN ALITALIA, SWISSAIR, UNITED, DELTA, VIRGIN (THE BEST) ,BUSINESS CLASS AND SEE HOW THEY PAMPER THEIR CUSTOMERS FROM CHECK IN, TO GREAT AND AMPLE GOOD FOOD AND CONTINUOUS SERVICE. -UNLIKE THY STALE, FROZEN FOOD. BAD BREAKFAST, NO AMPLE CHESE SELECTION (ONE SLICE WHITE CHESE ONLY), OVER COOKED BAD BURNED TASTING TEA. -SERVICE: THE MALE STEWARD DROPPED SALAD ON THE NEXT SEAT AND IT STAYED THERE FOR 5 HOURS. PICKED UP BY A FEMALE STEWARDESS AS WE ARE LANDING. IF THEY WISH TO USE MORE MALES ON BOARD THEY SHOULD AT LEAST TRAIN THEM WELL. I HAD TO WAIVE AT 3 DIFFERENT MALE STEWARDS AND THEY ALL PASSED BY NOT ACKNOWLEDGING AND I WAS SITTING ON THE FIRST ROW AISLE! THEY ARE RUDE, UNCARING, SHODDY SERVICE PEOPLE.."
Pros: "Service, food and the entertainment system was great"
Pros: "the etaff is friendly and they try"
Cons: "Seat room was small for me and hard to get comfortable. More leg room needed. Also Overhead compartments filled too fast and no room for my carry on."
Pros: "I won't fly this airline e"
Cons: "Everything was substandard"
Pros: "Sitting in a metal tube flying at 40,000 feet with 300 other personalities has its challenges. Turkish Airlines' staff managed this with excellent care. The smallest things begin to matter; the comfort of the aircraft, quality of food and drinks, the frequency and availability of service, and above all conveying the sense of safety. Every member of this company, from the staff at the counter to the flight attendants, to the pilot seem to really embrace customer service."
Pros: "On-board chef was excellent. Movie selection was excellent. Crew was very friendly and prompt."
Cons: "Economy class was very tight. Hard to rest."
Cons: "Best flight to DFW"
Pros: "They were very nice! Always a smile, even after 10 hours with us!"
Cons: "Final snack was a ricotta pepper sandwich - which was kind of a weird choice. Kitkat was of course delicious. Beef stew for lunch was fine. but my meal come out with frost on it, so the salad was freezer burned and my dressing was unable to pour being frozen! no veggies for me! :)"
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy this flight as everything seemed very unwelcoming here"
Cons: "Take care of passengers for drinks and others. Treat passengers with other languages nicely rather than in condescending way. I saw air hostess laughing among themselves and being little short with passengers who couldn’t communicate. The boarding process was very chaotic with no groups."
Pros: "Crew members went out of their way to ensure the passengers’ comfort."
Cons: "Boarding process in Frankfurt was very confusing and haphazard. Some passengers had been pre-checked, others had not been- which delayed the boarding. Flight was an hour late. Baggage claim in Delhi was a mess- had to wait for more than hour to get one checked bag."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Boarding totally chaotic, someone was in my assigned seat, plane was very late, food was crappy, no legroom , seat and armrests uncomfortable , constant screaming babies, smelly passengers, music only came out of one speaker, music kept jumping from one song to another and then back !"
Pros: "The airport was good"
Cons: "There's could be a better customer service at the counter of the plan the Lufthansa worker that work at the front disck they was so rod and the travelers has a lot of issues with them and the way the talk to the travelers they was like we're kids or slave to them"
Cons: "Better organized boarding"
Pros: "The new Airbus was a very cool aircraft."

Cons: "Crew was not necessarily warm or curteous"
Pros: "Good seats and wonderful flight crew."

Cons: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
Cons: "Boarding delayed, awkward & slow. Employees rude and bossy. Crew on board not pleasant or helpful. Food disgusting. Noticed same dramatic difference in passenger treatment between SFO and Frankfurt legs of the flight. They treat the mostly Indian customers differently. I go to India every year. It was same last year. My suitcase broken in transit. Reported. No call back after several days. I’m US citizen of German ancestry. I feel badly about lack of service for India bound passengers."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Just talked to my parents who were traveling and they had no help at FRA. It was very disappointing and something they said they do not want to go thru ever again."
Pros: "Good crew, liked the food and service. Better aircraft interior."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, lines weren't well controlled. Ground crew needs better training in being proactive, assertive, communicate better with tired passengers who have had to wait for 5hours in the very staid, and outdated Frankfort airport. Same problems with the headsets."
Cons: "Very cramped legroom. Confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Overall decent experience. The crew was attentive, captain informative."

Pros: "Awesome entertainment options, great dinner everything was yummy. Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, breakfast was horrible except for fruit salad."
Cons: "Cabin Crew does not pay much attention to customer need even in business class. They need to learn lot from KLM."
Cons: "Fraud United and Lufthansa"
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and food was not up to the mark"
Cons: "Also, just one meal and no snacks served on a 7 hour plus flight"
Pros: "Fast check in and boarding. Courteous service."
Cons: "I did not get te entree of my choice on one of the flights."
Pros: "service was good except for 1 attendant that didn't want to be there. Entertainment choices were very good."
Cons: "Food was very poor. Chicken was rubbery and the two pasta choices tasted horrible with no meat choice other than chicken. The biggest issue was the extreme delays from Lufthansa that ate into a 4+ hour layover that I should have had at LAX instead I arrived at the opposite terminal from my LAX flight with no time to get through customs and onto the plane I missed the plane by 10 minutes and had to book a hotel that wasn't paid for because it was Lufthansa's fault and not United which then put me and my family home a full 24 hours later than was originally planned."
Pros: "Never made it. Flight overbooked, late connection in. Hours to wait for help. Finally rebooked o arrive over 24 hours late. Hotel an meals provided, no compensation on site."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seating to small and tight I am only 5'11 175 lbs"
Cons: "Lufthansa treated us very poorly. When we arrived late in FRA, the gate attendant was extremely rude while trying to rebook and actually left us in the middle of rebooking because her shift ended. No one came to take her place!! She actually swore at us!! We were only able to rebook by calling the Lufthansa call centre and had to spend a very uncomfortable overnight at the airport without any certainty of when we would fly out. Lufthansa finally got us out on the same flight as booked but 24 hours later. And then, of course, they lost our luggage. Terrible overall experience."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The time it takes to travel. Can't control that."
Cons: "Transfer gate is too far away"
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."
Pros: "- Polite, professional, flexible service by crew - No delays - Quick check in - Free of charge alcohol - Free coffee & newspaper at Munich Airport (Lufthansa)"
Cons: "- No entertainment touchscreen but on a short flight is a understanable"
Cons: "The check-in team at Austrian Air insisted I could only take on a single carry-on, even though I'd come with two. Should be one above and one below."
Pros: "The crew and service was excellent!"
Cons: "I did not care for the food. My tv was not working, had to use the tv at the empty seat next to me."
Pros: "service, food, entertainment"
Cons: "seats, boarding process"
Pros: "The very best experience. The decor calming, great seats. "On board Chef " , great food. Staff very attentive, polite and always smiling. They exuded a joyful atmosphere and seemed like never sat down! This was the third leg of our long trip and they made it so enjoyable.. That is a lot as a passenger is quite tired and possibly irritable by this time. This was an Austrian Airline flight and we were really blown away.. I also give kudos to management for having staff that is so efficient, hardworking and yet so joyful!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "Only cleanilyness inside the plane"
Cons: "Customer service at the checkin at the airport and also the service by the flight attendant inside the plane"
Cons: "The airplane broke from Abudabi to Delhi with 4 hrs delay."
Pros: "The attendants and ground crew helping me was excellent."
Cons: "They ran out of food! There were no snack and I had to go without food from AUH to IAD. No snacks either. The focus was on selling food. A truly sad experience. I thought Ethiad was among the top 5 airlines but this experience puts the worse that the top 25"

Pros: "The crew took care of their passengers' needs throughout the flight with plenty of food and drinks."
Cons: "My headphones or speaker did not work on my TV so I was unable to watch any movies. It was difficult to sleep as I was woken up to see if I wanted food or drink"
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Comfo seat"
Cons: "Too ismail for the seat"
Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"
Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad.

Cons: "The seats we had were very hard to recline. For the first 8 hrs of the flight w my sister and I could not get the seats to recline The flight attendants would pass us by without asking we wanted anything to drink. We felt totally ignored particularly dine we were seat in the center two seats in the middle section."
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: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"

Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Cons: "Going to Cairo my luggage was delay in Abu dhabi and the luggage service at Cairo airport was the worst i have ever seen in my traveling live it took one day for my luggage to arrive to Cairo and it Came wet and everything in side was wet and they give me PH# to compliance never answered i West one day just chasing my luggage i will never advise anyone i know to fly Etihad bad bad experience never Again"

Pros: "Flight attendant manager is particularly friendly courteous and professional. I felt my obligation to mention that to the airline company."

Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Cons: "There was a bad odor of the bathroom, also I asked a blanket from the crew, then after 20 minutes I got it. Also the little rude dealing from the one of the crew. Little islamic programs"
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "Can improve quality of pure Veg food and give them more option so that they can travel conveniently"
Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"

Pros: "leg rooms are good from Chennai to Abu Dhabi and in flight service was good"
