Abu Dhabi - Jakarta. I was offered an online upgrade for which I bid $500. Didn't find out until I checked in that I had been successful. It was definitely worth every penny. Super-fast boarding, very comfortable lie-flat seat/bed, excellent choice of food and drinks from a very extensive menu with great presentation, and very professional service. There were 4 cabin crew for approximately 15 passengers. The only negative: had to change seats as the TV remote control wasn't working. The aircraft was an older 777. Very good experience.

MAN-AUH-BKK return. Excellent, punctual flights. Pick up by chauffeur at each end was much appreciated and transit in AUH was seamless. Food on board was wide in terms of variety but of very high quality. Cabin crew were most attentive and professional.

Purchased a return trip flying first class from Melbourne to London in Sept/Oct 2013. Flight to London was excellent - could not fault. However when arriving at airport for return flight - return ticket no longer worked? Etihad claimed it was American Airlines fault and they needed to sort it and therefore they did nothing to assist me. AA are their sister airlines but are at another terminal at Heathrow - Etihad would not assistance in sorting out problem - obviously could not be bothered. Now flying with Singapore but have to wait another 10 hours. Thank you for your lack of assistance Etihad - other airlines are far more helpful.

Flew BNE-AUH-DUB return, BC in September and found the service on board excellent both ways. The food was terrific and the only point in the whole journey that let the airline down was the inflight entertainment. It was rubbish for such a long haul flight, movies were very old, TV shows were showing reruns.

EY22, Manchester to Abu Dhabi, EY622, Abu Dhabi to Mahe, EY621, Mahe to Abu Dhabi, EY15, Abu Dhabi to Manchester. We decided to try Etihad rather than fly with Emirates. What a mistake. There is no leg room if you are tall. When the person in front put their seats back it was most uncomfortable and the staff only begrudgingly asked them to put them upright when the meal was being served. The food was not very good. There was no clean up of the toilets during a 7.5 hour flight. There was no way you could walk around as if you went to the rear of the plane the staff frowned if you went into their space. The films on offer were not very good. The Etihad flight from the Seychelles was an hour late and we came into gate 35 then had to rush to transit at gate 1 and then rush to gate 36 for our Manchester flight. All in all it was an experience that we will not be repeating.

Abu Dhabi (AUH) to London, Heathrow (LHR). Etihad requires the passenger to check in at the airport at least 1.5 hrs before the flight. As you approach the airport, the streets are filled with signs to guide you on where to go. When you reach, workers with trolleys will be waiting for you to help with the luggage. While you're entering the terminal the security check is after the luggage check therefore, it will be comfortable for the passenger to go through security without having to worry about the luggage. After the security check and when you are ready to board, you will walk through a fairly small duty free which requires improvement. The shops were not organized and small and the food court is very small and does not have the variety that would make the passengers have a good experience at the airport. I boarded the Boeing 777, which was very large compared to the other airplanes I went on. There are two lines before you enter, a line for economy class and the other for business and first class. The line for economy was much longer than the other line. I did not have to wait because my ticket was a business class ticket. The flight welcomed the passengers with smiles, which was a great start. The passenger is guided to his seat and helped with placing his hand luggage. The seats were small as my expectations were higher for a highly priced ticket that cost 8130 AED. However, as the plane took off and the passengers were allowed to move the seats, it turned out to be very comfortable as the seats can turn into a bed. The service was very quick and I had access to food at all times during the flight. Overall it was a great flight that I recommend for all.

Flew EY878, (AUH-NRT) on 24 Sept. A332. Had to bus from the terminal to the jet. Managed to get a paid upgrade to Business. Seat seemed to be narrow, But was great when flat. Service was outstanding from boarding to disembarkation. IFE in Business was the same as in Economy. I expected more from the amenity kit. I would pay for an upgrade again.

I flew on EY20, (LHR AUH) on 23 Sept. B777 in economy. The flight was empty so we were all able to spread ourselves out. The cabin service was quick and friendly. Drinks flowed and the food was actually really good for economy. IFE seemed limited but acceptable for a short flight. One crew member seemed to be new and a little lost but I'm sure she will be on top of her game after a couple flights. Leg room was fine but seat width across the shoulders may have been uncomfortable if the flight had been full. I will fly again.

Travelled SYD-AUH-LHR and back. Firstly the pros, the service and entertainment were great. Food and drinks (water) kept coming. Washroom was clean all the way, that's pretty good for 21-22 hours. But the reason I may not travel again on Etihad on a long haul flight are the seats, very uncomfortable, I am not very tall so leg room was adequate, but the seats were very hard and not at all good for my back. The armrest on all flights did not have the cushion part sewn on it, it was just hard. For long haul flight all passengers whether first class or economy require a certain degree of comfort which was sorely lacking on Etihad. I am not anti-Etihad, perhaps for a trip to NZ I would travel on it again, but never again for a trip to Europe.

Flew from Manchester on 21 September to Abu Dhabi with Etihad, had very mixed expectations as I had flown last year with Emirates who were very poor. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as the flight and the staff were outstanding - nothing was too much trouble. Having said how good our flight was we now had high expectations of our connecting flight to Colombo - how very disappointed we were. Badly organized, didn't check seat belts, left our meal tray for 45 mins after everyone was finished - not sure what they were doing. We only had to wait 20 mins for them to answer our calls and then 10 more mins to bring the wine.

Flew out on 21st Aug, BNE-SIN-AUH-ATH. Returned 14th Sep, EY470, LHR-AUH-SIN-BNE. This was not the cheapest carrier. Sets are too small for majority of those around 6 ft. I saw at least 7 passengers with their knees jammed in seats and one tall woman in tears. Meals were ordinary and drinks adequate - most staff do their best once on board and the cabin manager was great. Most disturbing thing is the stop and re-board at AUH. Main terminal is a disorganised mess - toilets are inadequate. Bussed to plane, air conditioning useless and by the time you get to aircraft you are seething.

Flew from AUH to MAN. No check in at Abu Dhabi as was transit passenger from another airline. Was bussed from remote stand for a long ride, unimpressed with the airport itself and long security lines. Seat assignment pre- booked honoured. Full flight to Manchester, AVOD was decent, but could be better. Found cabin crew polite, professional, though the male staff seemed professional. Food was good, with full hot breakfast before arrival. All in all a good flight which pleasantly surprised me.

Flew from D.C to Chennai. Things were not good at Abu Dhabi, the terminal and Gate to India was over crowded and no place to even stand. The arrival time to Chennai was 1.5 hrs delayed and we lost our connecting domestic flight. On the way back, the seats were not assigned properly, they canceled our selected seats. In a four seat row, for a family of four, we were given three seats and we had to travel with a toddler for a 15 hr flight from Abu Dhabi to D.C. The seats are not that great either, they are narrow and not much leg space. Only good thing is the flight crew.

Flew Business class, LHR-AUH-PVG. Great service on the first leg, the Business class lounge at Heathrow was superb. Excellent selection and very comfy. The boarding was a little chaotic, but once onboard excellent flight. Wine selection was wonderful as was the food selection. Transfer very easy. Next leg was in First. I was the only person in First and what an experience. Food was of restaurant quality, having my own chef literally. The wine and champagne again was of tip top standard. As nobody else was on board, I had my own dining booth and my own sleeping booth. Managed a full 7 hours uninterrupted sleep. Breakfast again was superb.

I've flown Etihad more than 20 times within the last 9 months. On my most recent flight last Tuesday I had the same great service as usual. The cabin crew were very open and friendly. Even if I couldn't sleep on the two flights the crew were offering drinks and food during the night time. Food was good as usual as well as the entertainment system. I love flying with this airline and can recommend it to everyone. Compared to others the seat comfort is good and I had plenty of leg space.

After booking my tickets I advised customer services of my disabled needs. When I arrived at the airport this information was not on my booking and so I had to explain again my disabilities and needs at the check in desk. On arrival into AUH the plane was parked on a remote stand. after the plane has disembarked I had to wait a further 20 mins for ground crew to bring the lift to get me off! I was taken straight to the connecting gate as normal. At the gate I had to identify myself to the staff who had no history of my needs and I had to stop a ground staff and request my own assistance to board the flight via the lift. I boarded nearly last which meant jostling . Again no specific instructions in case of an emergency were given - it is usual to be informed what the crew will do for me to get me off in an emergency. I have before have I been treated with less dignity or support.

Abu Dhabi - Kuala Lumpur - Abu Dhabi. B777-300, 3x4x3, economy class. Very slow check in at Abu Dhabi airport, flight delayed for 5.5 hours without prior notification, and also without a word of apology. Return flight on time. I have commented before on seating comfort on those flights, after 7 hours you feel the impact of hard seats in your limbs. Food quality and services very good both legs, so is the inflight system.
