Cons: "Staff is not super welcoming, looks like they are forced to serve the economy class, you get what you pay for, Also its super crowded."
Pros: "The food was nice. Vegetarian and non veg options were good for all the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding process was one of the most unorganised and pitiful for passengers I have ever seen!! Baggage check in process was a mess and the crew could not handle it. There were multiple lines at baggage check in for some reason for economy itself. We were guided by crew to one of the lines. Then after half hour, they put our line behind another line that arrived after us! Mismanagement led is to wait for nearly 2 hours at baghage check in. Also, the person at kiosk failed to check me in for connecting flight from Abu Dhabi(I was marked for airport checkin, so web check in was not an option). So when I reached Abu Dhabi, I was told my name was not even on the list!! Moreover I had only half hour layover at Abu Dhabi due to delayed flight from Mumbai . One of the worst experiences ever as it was also our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Cleaniness , food , entertainment"
Cons: "Air hostesses, my daughter asked 3 times for something . They kept saying will give and eventually no manners to come and reply also .. Asked for an extra bun for my 3 year old I was said will come back after the round but again no one came .. Never experienced this with any other flight .. Boarding also with kids was a little difficult when going by bus to the aircraft .. No priorities .. Only pushing .."
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Pros: "The A380 aircraft is an absolute delight to travel in. Makes the flight very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and refused to provide any additional snacks or drinks after 1st service. Very limited food menu and very little in quantity."
Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me. What I love most is their selection of entertainment. I wasnt expecting the food to be as good as it was. I love their flight progress and flight time."
Cons: "Jet airways disappointed me from Abu Dhabi to Mumbai because it took a while to board then after boarding we waiting over two hours for a delay."
Cons: "movie selection poor."
Pros: "The flight was awesome. A380 is thebest"
Cons: "They didnt have A380 from abu dhabi to SFO which was the longest part of my trip."
Pros: "Food , service"
Pros: "Flight seats and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Overbooking Confirmed flight and seats gets cancelled when you reach airport to board Airports and call center staff is rude, no response when my luggage was missing I will never fly with etihad again."
Pros: "Food and upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Good in all respect"
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The food was great, seating was comfortable. Crew members were very helpful."
Pros: "Seats, pillow"

Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good.. Would definitely fly Etihad again."

Cons: "Punctuality, No break fast"
Cons: "Bathroom floors were wet most of the time."
Cons: "Small plane and crowded and services was not good. I had to take two buses to get to the international terminal. I had to wait for a wheelchair for an hour."
Pros: "Chauffeur driven service"
Cons: "It is a week now since the flight and Etihad still has no clue where my checked luggage went. Etihad has not responded to questions submitted on their baggage tracing website, nor provided any updates to me."
Pros: "Headline says it all."
Pros: "The flights itself were not bad. Infact flying towards my destination we had a very pleasant flight. The crew was very helpful, and they have good seats as compared to most other airlines. The food was also good as compared to most other major airlines."
Cons: "However on the return trip I had to cancel my ticket and rebook it for a later date. So I was told the I would have to pay a difference of $770 for an upgrade to elite economy as none of the "normal economy" seats were available. This is a joke as the only privilege for elite economy was priority boarding. That to me should not cost close to $800. However I was desperately in need of a ticket and the normal economy was available only after week no matter when you called. So after paid for this rebooking after an already expensive ticket, turns out the "elite economy" upgrade was only for one of the 3 flights that I travelled on, which was incidentally operated by American. So after after travelling on some horrible seats and paying some $1800 dollars for a one way ticket I dont think I can rate the experience with even an OK review. Also it took almost one and a half hours at Mumbai airport to drop my bags off at the Etihad front desk for the economy class. Also for some reason they did not board based on zones leading to one long line at Airport prior to boarding."
Pros: "Good aircraft and excellent entertainment system. Food was quite good."
Cons: "The attendants were just not interested. They were unresponsive and rude."
Cons: "My inlaws were carrying 4 bags with them. However all 4 are in very bad condition. Wheels are almost broken and I can't even drag them. It's worse. For there return journey I have to buy them new ones. It's overhead for me."
Pros: "on time boarding & departure"
Cons: "Service by crew terrible they don't take regular walk throughs in the cabin most of them go in and sleep and leave abt 2 members to manage. we have to walk every time we need something as basic as water same bland food which is not even properly heated"
Cons: "Late take off, ran out of non veg food. IFE didn't work for a bit"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats and slow service. Food was terrible. Selected seats were not given and changed because the aircraft configuration had changed."
Cons: "Service, and non accommodating staff."
Pros: "Average level of service."
Cons: "Booked tickets, requesting wheelchair assistance for 75+ year old passenger. Wheelchair was not provided or offered at time of check-in. Had to repeatedly requested at check-in that passenger has disability and will require wheelchair assistance, was informed that wheelchair was not requested hence will not be provided. Has to log-in to the Ethiad's electronic account to prove that wheelchair was requested. Wheelchair was eventually provided but after lots of hassle. Pathetic service to say the least. Additionally, luggage did not arrive destination, airline did not have the courtesy to notify passenger of this. Passenger was waited long for the luggage, then Ethiad representative arrived to inform about the luggage. Filling paperwork for lost luggage was not pretty as well. Ethiad representative would not even offer any kind of assistance and had to request several times to provide some sort of monetary assistance to purchase essentials for one day. Luggage was promised to be delivered within the next 24 hours, actually arrived after the promised time. All in all, from a seasoned international travel avoid this airline for poor customer service."
