Airline reviews

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Food could have been bit better."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"

Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"

Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"

Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."

Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"

Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."

Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"

Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"
Cons: "Since they have started on board snacks, it can be offered as a replacement for the meal, maybe. Plus, Indigo staff still exudes more confidence in me"

Pros: "Service was nice. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow for free updrades"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."

Pros: "Not at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Very good crew"

Pros: "All was okay and easy."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. Crew was nice and accommodating but seemed a little lost or not sure how to prioritize and multi-task."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."

Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."

Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."

Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"

Pros: "Baggage policy is good"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."

Pros: "The air hostesses were very warm and friendly."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delay that was not good"

Pros: "everything went smoothly.. good service, good food"

Pros: "Was a very good experience. Staff was friendly and organized. Food was good."

Pros: "Free upgrade to first class for no apparent reason"

Pros: "The best airline in India... by far!"

Pros: "Cleanliness timing"
Cons: "Baggage cost for extra luggages."

Pros: "They had a check in/ luggage drop before the AirTran"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Wonderful staff and nice, clean airplane. I will use your airlines in the future now."

Pros: "I thought I was taking a budget airline but ended up feeling like I was on a top notch airline. Comfortable seats, good snacks, good services. No complaints and would definitely fly again"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."

Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"

Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."

Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."

Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."

Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"

Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"

Pros: "The interior aesthetics are good and the cabin crew are well trained to look after the needs of the pasengers."

Pros: "The best airlines"

Pros: "Leg space is good. Food is good. Cabin crew is top notch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"

Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"

Pros: "While waiting to board, they first informed me that I had been upgraded from Economy to Business. Then they changed their mind and said it would be Premium Economy. I still didn't mind. And then they say, what the heck, go enjoy yourself in Business. Now that is something I will appreciate for a long time. Happy Birthday Vistara!"

Pros: "The food quality and the inflight entertainment were better than most other commercial airlines. The free upgrade to premium economy due to availability was also welcome."
Cons: "Three things : 1) The crew seemed to be relatively inexperienced and just out of college. I observed a couple of informal communication exchanges from their part. But the crew were helpful and tried their best to provide the best customer experience. 2) The boarding process normally starts with business and premium class and then followed by economy. For my flight however the economy class was boarded first while the business class passengers were kept stranded waiting in a separate line. This also reflected the inexperience of the crew which handled the boarding. 3) Vistara was my connecting flight from Pune to Delhi followed by British airways flight from Delhi to London. Though the flights were booked under one ticket, the representative did not checkin my luggage throughout the journey due to which I had to collect my baggage at Delhi and check it in again. The representative explained that vistara still didn't have alliances with most airlines allowing luggage to be checked in till final destination. This is another front on which they can improve."

Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."

Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."

Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."

Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "There’s a reason Qatar Airline is one of the top 10 airlines! Other airlines feed you pretzels and charge you for a blanket. Qatar feeds you numerous times throughout the flight and everything is as great as travel today can be."

Cons: "Excellent service and stuff"

Pros: "Food"

Cons: "Seat comfort was not very good.. and food was bad"

Pros: "Staff were fantastic."
Cons: "Better movies please."

Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."

Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."

Pros: "service attitude"

Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."

Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"

Pros: "Food was delicious as always the crew never disppointed me always made me happy there’s very very good trained"
Cons: "I have nothing I dislike from Chennai to Doha it was only 5 hour journey so I was so comfy"

Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"

Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"

Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"

Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."

Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Cons: "No internet"

Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."

Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."

Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"

Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."

Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."

Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."

Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful and caring"
Cons: "Flying in and out of Doha and being marked for yet another deep search was so frustrating"

Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."

Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."

Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."

Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "good"

Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"

Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "About the same vegetarian food was served at almost every meal of the 13 hour flight."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety in food for long-haul flights. The food was not at all appetizing. ---- Entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

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

Cons: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "We liked how attentive your crew members were"
Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."

Pros: "Service was excellent and food was all right. I do not eat meat or dairy but there was still some food for me on this flight."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"

Cons: "Missed the connecting flight due to some delay. Had to sleep over for a night. A lot of discomfort. New flight time was very later the next day. Messed up all my bookings and schedule."

Pros: "Overall great experience"
Cons: "Maybe the food could have a been a bit better"

Pros: "Crew was professional, qiality of food great"
Cons: "Boarding is better done row-wise than by alphabetical groups which is arbitrary"

Cons: "Just because I have bought my ticket on points I was not given a chauffeur driver."

Pros: "Crew helped me with a chamomile to help me sleep."
Cons: "It was quite good"

Pros: "Unprofessional crew member how to treat as GOLD member in business class cabin"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "I was happy with all aspects of the flight"

Pros: "I had my seat changed due to my injured leg, staff acted swiftly, flight was relaxing."
Cons: "They ran out of options on the food and considering it wasn't a full flight that surprised me."

Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."

Pros: "On time, chose the raw meal which was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Beverage service was minimal even after requests"

Pros: "Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board."

Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"

Pros: "Ditto......great"

Cons: "Airplane to late"

Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"

Cons: "Crew staff"

Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Great and friendly cabin crew. Lots of movies to chose. Food was great."
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Cons: "luggage did not make connecting flight from dubai to jfk, inspite of pilot telling us 1 hour or so delay was waiting for luggage. at jfk was told can get same night if want to. this proved futile . spent hours at JFk waiting and talking to Emirates. spoke with multiple agents including Luz, sarah, etc. finally around 12 midnight was told customs would not release till next day. but promised to get it to us by 12noon next day (flying to wyoming next day at 330 pm) . this did not happen. again multiple phone calls and promises , failed. Kiamaria even got text of address in WY where 2 suitcases should have gone. All 4 suitcases were sent to NJ and arrived at 9pm. more phone calls. this time Rachel helped with fedex labels unfortunately more problems as fedex said no barcode and we had to go to fedex office and finally they took care of it so many hours wasted, not to mention the anxiety and frustratioon How are you going to reimburse all this ????"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "To be honest I liked everything with this flight"
Cons: "I didn't get upgraded to business or first class ;) Maybe next time though"

Pros: "Good service, great crew, comfortable seat and pitch."
Cons: "The food was mediocre compared to usual standards."

Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."

Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."

Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"

Cons: "Boarding at Dubai was like a disaster"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."

Pros: "travel was pleasant"

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"

Pros: "Great service and staff, best food I've had on an airline, great legroom in economy. Overall awesome, in my opinion."

Cons: "I waited in queue for almost 4 hours to get past security. While watching people cut the line, airport officials taking bribe and allowing some people to cut the line and more. i did not have enough time to purchase from the duty free store in chennai and since my flight from chennai was late it landed late in Dubai so I did not have any time to purchase anything in dubai duty free before my connecting flight. I reached airport 4 hours before departure and I get treated like this, horrible service."

Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."

Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"

Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."

Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive. didnt respond properly"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."

Cons: "The way they are Waigh the luggage was like weighing gold."

Pros: "It was all positives from the time we check in until we arrived in Kindon."

Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."

Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."

Pros: "Friendly crew and great food"
Cons: "Delay to take off"

Pros: "Also perfect"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Despite requesting children’s meal, they were not available. Chicken meatballs were disgusting Overall, if it isn’t curry then it’s not worth having. Their curry was very nice Limited movies"

Pros: "Great service by crew members Had good number of meals and beverages"

Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."

Pros: "Being a QR Gold member and one world airline I opt UL for few travels by which i can get additional miles and travel in business with less money compared to QR. The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine. Business class lounge in Colombo is good with free feet and head massage. When there is a five hour plus transit, free hotel is provided by UL. Overall i like their flights and service and food."

Pros: "There was no entertainment as it was a short flight.had to report quite early in the morning because of airport renovation.otherwise the flight , journey and food were Good"
Cons: "Had to wait for one and half hours to get our luggage from the belt as all gulf transit passengers who checked in later than us got theirs first and since we checked in first our luggage came last.I had onward journey for eight hours by bus and with lack of sleep the previous day it was quite tiresome."

Pros: "Chennai to Columbo was nice and easy, on time."
Cons: "No liquor served."

Pros: "On time arrival. Personal entertainment system. Meal included. Everytging for a 3h flight. Amazing."

Pros: "The flight landed safely is by far the most that I liked. The service was okay."

Cons: "One hour flight delayed by 2 hrs"

Pros: "Cleanliness in cabin was very poor and food quality was extremely poor."
Cons: "Cleanliness in cabin was very poor and food quality was extremely poor."

Cons: "Sri Lankan seems to fly very old A320 aircraft on this route, at least for the daytime flights, and these have limited comfort in business class and rather small entertainment systems by today's standards. But it's surprising that the food quality is also poor because Sri Lanka has such amazing cuisine as a country."

Pros: "Crew was professional and food was very good. Entertainment was really good."

Pros: "Food varieties are not that good"
Cons: "Make the food quality, quantity and varieties to be improved"

Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "All the food is halal."

Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."

Pros: "Seats near me were empty"

Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"

Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."

Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."

Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"

Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"

Cons: "Poor service"

Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."

Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"

Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."

Pros: "Nothing much as an Economy passenger"
Cons: "Single lady travelling and the seat was between two men on both legs. Asked ticketing at Chennai nd he said you will get in Abu Dhabi and did not give boarding pass for the Second leg of flight. Came to Abudhabi and tried to get boarding pass for seating not between two males but the ticketing agent lied to me “ go run your flight is leaving” and gave me seating between two males for 15 hour flight requested"

Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"

Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."

Pros: "Great all round experience - good flight, nice plane, comfortable and well equiped with lovely staff."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "I liked the wider seats and slightly more leg-room on the Abu Dhabi/London leg of the flight, the food was good and the staff pleasant."
Cons: "I was randomly picked for an "extra security check" at the Heathrow check-in in Abu Dhabi, which seemed ridiculous after going through the Johannesburg security and x-ray check as well as the Abu Dhabi one, and then having to switch on all of my electronic equipment and be swabbed for what I assume was drugs felt a bit over-the-top."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "bed"

Cons: "Food was bad"

Pros: "Boarding process and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was horrible. First of all, we didn't get what we had requested. On top of it, whatever they had provided was substandard. Especially whatever they had given as sandwich."

Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."

Pros: "excellent quiet A380 plane. Enjoyed the flight even in economy"

Pros: "Selection of movie and TV shows could have been better"
Cons: "Selection of movies could be better"

Pros: "The bathrooms were clean and functioning"

Pros: "Everything was lovely."

Cons: "Lacking in Hosiptality"

Pros: "I like the movies. Seats assignment to window in a 2 seats row are the best. They seat a chubby person who was all over my seat the whole 5 joirse"
Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."

Pros: "Seats where just roomy enough,let's face it,you can always use more room right. Staff was very friendly and attentive . I absolutely loved flying Etihad !"
Cons: "I would still like a roomier seat,again though, I think anybody would . I probably should have perchased first class,hmmm, should the whole plane be that comfortable?And not too much more cost . I say that would be wonderful !"

Cons: "The website does not allow updating of food preferences. I tried multiple times to update my preferences but it did not work well. Veg options are a must for flights originating from India as there are several passengers who prefer veg meals. However, this was not well attended to in the flight."

Pros: "Flight was good - smooth takeoff & landing. But delayed half hour in Abu Dhabi , did not make it up. Crew good but food was not tasty. My wife's specially ordered Jain vegetarian meal was inedible. Seat comfort OK but soiled by a supper in seat ahead, could not stretch legs."
Cons: "Entertainment choice for Indians limited and poor content. Unremarkable English movies & music. Quantity but not quality"

Pros: "I got upgraded to business class on this flight. This isn't something I can afford to do, but I will tell you it is substantially better."

Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Cons: "there was short delays"

Pros: "Liked the food Good service"

Pros: "Staff in business very attentive and friendly. Food and beverage choices very good. Presentation excellent. Staff in economy nice enough."
Cons: "In business on the 380- where has the massage option gone on the beds?? Those awful hot sandwiches served after breakfast in economy. Greasy, fatty and more like pastries. They have been serving them for years. I've spoken to tens of people and not found one who likes them! Toilets not checked very regularly for clean ups/ tidy ups and replenishments. Online duty free showing 'not available' but when they came around it was."

Pros: "Ample room and privacy provided by the tastefully done seating pod arrangement"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seat was really comfortable, food was alright."
Cons: "Staff, I've missed my snack when I was sleeping nobody awake me"

Pros: "Etihad's cabin crew were superb; very attentive and nothing too much trouble. Food and wines delicious, cabin immaculate, seat/bed very comfortable. A great flight on their fabulous A380."
