Etihad not so good now
these were my first and definitely LAST flights with Etihad, that's why I did not use the return ones. I flew with Qatar Airways, a huge improvement.
I was appalled and disgusted to find out that my suitcase lock was broken and items have been stolen
Good connection time at Abu Dhabi. Cabin temp too cold and no individual air controls. Got severe stiff neck from cold draft. Use blanket as a scarf to avoid.
Flight prices had increased significantly due to the Eid holidays.
Flight from Manchester to Abu Dhabi very cramped. Unable to sleep.
Not enough to drink offered
Always efficient and helpful staff, smooth running. Pleasant experience.
Haven't flown with Etihad Airways before and was very pleased with this airline. Seats were comfortable, food was great and staff were helpful.
No kosher food
Journey went smoothly apart from slight delay on the stop over on my outward bound journey, stopping off at Abu Dhabi.
