Liked the flight both ways. The return flight Crew (DUBai to NY) could be bit more friendlier/courteous, May be it’s just the way they communicate.
Emirates is top notch. I would travel with them again in a heartbeat.
You should add little bit more snacks.

Pros: "Very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "amazing customer service. great seats and interior. well on schedule."
Cons: "no window seats were available just some time after check in was open(at least when i got notification). Got airplane ears- pressure issue. This has never happened to me before."
Pros: "Best of the nest"
Cons: "Boarding system. Final call on gate and it's to get to 2 more areas."

Pros: "Crew service, and service at Emirates lounge in Dubai, were outstanding"
Pros: "Flight timing"
Pros: "Great food and Entertainment"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and take off on time"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Seat bookings in just fly are messed up. Kayak took me to just fly for the bookings. The seats for the the 16hr+ flight on just fly we're window seats however at time of check-in I got middle seats in the center 4 seats. It was the worst flight booking experience on kayak so far."
Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "I always prefer this airline to so many others. It’s definitely more organized, good selection of movies, more leg room for a long flight which is great. The food was mediocre"
Cons: "Movies Leg room Breakfast"
Cons: "seats wouldn't recline, they say it is a mechanical, I had to sit uncomfortably for 16 hrs"
Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"
Pros: "Overall top service."
Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"
Pros: "You give me exelent space behind the exit ..tnx"
Pros: "Loved my experience with Emirates. It was the best international flight I've ever had. The seats are comfortable, the entertainment options are great, staff was all very friendly, alcoholic drinks were complimentary, they give you a great care package with socks, ear plugs, toothbrush and paste, and the price was great!"
Cons: "The only negative thing I have to say is the food isn't good, but that's to be expected for me as I'm very picky. I just pack my own food and snacks."
Pros: "Good entertainment system and nice staff."
Cons: "I have 2 six-hour flights connecting in Dubai. Only one meal on each. Seems pretty stingy."
Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"
Cons: "We had several friends who made the same trip on other airlines and were not hassled about visas. We had all of the documentation that we were told to have by our friends and by travel agents... Emirates did not accept this and did not let us travel and refused to refund or change our tickets. Disappointment does not even begin to describe the emotion of losing this once in a lifetime opportunity."
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "A380 is spacious"
Cons: "my tablet was not flat"
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."
Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."
Cons: "Delayed flight with little or no apology. Lots of waiting and an attitude of - this is just how it is. That's true, but information goes a long way to smooth delay situations. Emirates failed at this."
Pros: "I love that I got a cute little bag filled with things like socks, eyemask, and ear plugs. Its just the little extra things that made it better"
Pros: "Flying on Emirates is a treat. The food is delicious, the staff is friendly and professional, and a long journey becomes a pleasant adventure."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, wide space between raws, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly Crew, good food, crew offered great service, from time to time offer drink and appetizers. We have come such a long distance comfort and fun."
Pros: "Good service and good food"

Cons: "long transit in Dubai"
Pros: "Relaxing on time flight.."
Cons: "Food was bad... Before it used to be really good..."
Pros: "I got left alone! I watched movies, and slept most the flight!"
Cons: "Nothing in particular. I just wanted to be out of the plane asap since my "fun" incident in Maldives. Safe to say that emirates has ruined my vision of the maldives for a while."
Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Cons: "Can you enforce the team NOT to throw the luggage to keep on the belt(s) as you guys don't have to."
Pros: "This airline really surprised me. It was my first time flying with them and their staff and services were exceptional. They had a great movie selection, good legroom, friendly crew, and the food wasn't like your typical airplane food—theirs actually had flavor! I would highly recommend them any day. Looking forward to flying with them again down the line."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like!"
Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."
Pros: "beautiful stewardesses"
Cons: "seats not very comfortable food selection a little limited"
Cons: "They tried to cancel my flight.they said they r over booked.it was so stressful as I was going with a group"
Pros: "Food and seat and entertainment"
Cons: "Check in time is too early (at least 90 hours before departure) Not part of sky team or star alliance"
Cons: "Food we got was not promised. Drinks are not served or highlighted based on requirements"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Service could have been better"
Pros: "Spacious flight. Helpful crew. Efficient boarding"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"
Pros: "That there was a vegetarian meal on the second leg of my travel. And that the journey is over. Besides that, not much"
Cons: "1 hour delay to begin with. Then trasfer area at Abu Dhabi was utter chaos. While it's suffocatingly crowded, there was no A.C! No vegetarian option for meal on the flight from Brussels to Abu Dhabi. The seats hurt by bottom. One of the worst flight seats ever. All in all, a totally underwhelming experience."
Pros: "Food was excellent."
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice enough."
Cons: "1. On FCO-AUH route, my son’s entertainment system did not work. We informed the flight attendant and she said it has to be reset but did not come back to do something about it. 2. On AUH-MLA route, my entertainment system is so unresponsive. The touch screen does not work, so I had to use the manual controls. 3. Repetitive advertisements 4. Movies are old, not updated. 5. Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "E box movies , longer leg room"
Cons: "Nothing I love Etihad"
Cons: "Crew was very rude, ground or air. Our layoff was 11.hours nobody provide us food or hotel, we stayat terminal 3 for 11 hours. Seats were assigned to us was in the end of craft though we're 1st in check in. Food was rotten like dogybag with no class. Head phone were broken."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"
Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"
Cons: "5 hours flight took 8 hours"
Pros: "Nothing compared to other airlines especially emirates airline which was amazing and reason we flew etihad thinking it will be same experience."
Cons: "Everything especially the small seats with tiny aisles like American Airlines. I was shocked with etihad compared to rest of Airlines from your country. We were very impressed with Emirates so the complaints and comments are compared to the best I have seen and not typical Airlines."
Pros: "i arrived safely"
Cons: "Even thiugh i paid for first class , i was made to wait for 30 minutes while economy passengers boarded. Many of them arrived after me. Other first class flights allow you to eat when you want. not this one. i slept through their mealtime - no food for me. the seats also do not recline fully. Since the treatment is not first class, might as well fly economy on this one."
Pros: "SeatsPrompt service"
Cons: "I couldn't chose the Hindu meal when I booked ticket from Kayak and I had to suffer my entire journey not having food"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Business class seat uncomfortable when made into bed. Crew appeared tired and overworked as time went by became inattentive Chaotic boarding and no information given about difficulties they were having. Lacking in food variety and minimal entertainment variety."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "only served breakfast shortly after 8am take off .no other meal served.arrived Abu Dhabi 7pm. kept having to ask for drinks."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable and the crew was very courteous and friendly. Breakfast could have been a bit better quality, though. Overall it was a nice flight and I would take it again."
Cons: "Food was nothing special."
Pros: "That they changed my seat to emergency row seat free of charge"
Cons: "Staff are rude ..they wake u up roughly to offer u food.. that was crazy .. too many announcements .. they stop the entertainment system 45 min prior to landing"
Pros: "We bought ticket from New York to Islamabd round trip ticket and fly on August 22nd. After changed plan in Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, there was rain in Islamabad and all flight diverted to Lahore, so our Etihad air plan diverted to Lahore too. once the weather cleared in few hours , all air line did fly back to Islamabad a 50 minutes flight but unfortunately Etihad air way force everyone out of airplane by force. They used police to beat up passenger very bad and drags them out. Then put all passenger in old Bus to Islamabad a 5 hours trip. One of worst air line in my life. We bought ticket for Islamabad not for Lahore. They should take us back to Islamabad after rain stop like other air line did but only Etihad air way did not fly back and beat all passenger by using police on them, it took us 34 hours to get home."
Cons: "Etihad air way should apologize to each passenger and Reimburse them 1/4 of the ticket. otherwise lot of people will give up this airline . 2nad their meal was very bad. bread was not fully cooked. they cooked only Hindy food. not every person is Hindu. It welcome to providr hindu food when travel india but when it travel to Pakistan or Bangladesh it should name it Hindu meal."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight had TOo few restrooms. About 4 for 250 people or so. There was at least a 15 minute wait at almost any given time."
Cons: "Again very. Very badly treated by etihad people"
Pros: "On this leg the general courtesy was great especially one particular hostess, Nikita. The movies and certain music on the menu were a good range."
Cons: "The food! 12 hours of mediocrity in a aluminium foil. My wife and my hand held consoles were not working and hence we couldn't use our reading light besides some other functional limitations. An elderly lady sitting in front of me had a bad bout of chills because of the cabin temperature (most probably) the staff never followed up on the help that fellow passengers had given to the lady. My prior two flights with this airliner were much worse My A380 experience in the Emirates has been MUCH more spacious and great meals with a predictably jollier staff. Qatar airways can perhaps even top that. The only thing I feel etihad has over these better rivals is the convenience of the US Immigration. As a NATIONAL CARRIER of the UAE, I'm quite unimpressed and disappointed."
Pros: "The leg room on the economy seats is good"
Cons: "The entertainment options are not enough"
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"
Pros: "Timings good."
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance very poor, I suffered a lot."

Pros: "Spacious seating , very good food , excellent service."
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
Pros: "Sichuan Chicken was the best airline food i have ever eaten in an airline. it was quite impressive. Might be too spicy for a lot of people but i love it. I would advise that you add "spicy" next to the name for those who can't handle spicy food."
Cons: "Since i was travelling alone, it was asked to change my seat from an aisle seat to a fairly packed seat in the middle of the plane. i did them a favor because a son wanted to sit next to his dad. i really shouldn't have change. the seat was very cramped. like wow, the plane was small. i do not think i would do it again. ever."
Pros: "Not much to specify...."
Cons: "Entertainment is not available until 10 mins after take off and it gets cut off 10 mins before landing...."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for more than 2 hours for flight to take off. Missing the connecting flight to New Delhi from Abu Dhabi. Stranded in the Abu Dhabi terminal for more than 24 hours to get back to New Delhi. The airline did not provide a room to stay & forced to stay in the terminal for 24 hours. Never ever travel via Etihad."
Cons: "The food wasn't as per standard of such an airline or any other for that matter...."
Cons: "On March 20, 2016, Baggage conveyor system not operational causing great inconvenience and needed more Check-in ticket agents. Food was OK except the Breakfast or last meal before arrival at Lahore Pakistan."
Pros: "I liked the fact my request to sit with my wife was successful and we both got exit rows. Staff were very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Check in took took long and it would be better if you could use more technology to speed up the process (e.g.) check in via email and check your bags before you get to the airport so you can just drop them off."
Cons: "Long flight and service was not that good."
Cons: "Extra bag fees, overly strict and told me I couldn't have any clothes or other items in my computer bag. Charged me $300 since I had clothes in the computer bag. No leg room at all, horrible experience."
The CRJ900 is a small plane. For larger passengers, it is only tolerable, even in 1st class. Perhaps avoid 1st row
Missed our connection due to delayed. Ended up with a replacement flight with connections getting us in really late and annoying..
6 hours late. Kept on the runway for 45 min
Pros: "They held the plane for us due to the air tram malfunction at DFW!"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay no explanation"
Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Cons: "I hate pretzels. Another option would be cool"
Pros: "Great attend ants"
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Pros: "Food was far better coming back than going there."
Cons: "No working USB to hook electronics up. What good is it to stream onboard content when on a 10H flight my phone dies in 4H... Stick to paper books next time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was outstanding. Flexible. Good sense of humor and very professional"
Cons: "Due to missed connection, computer booked me on later flight, but in the wrong class (i.e., not first class as ticketed). Very helpful agent at O'Hare was able to remedy this though (didn't get her name. 6/25/19 at help desk near O'Hare gate L4, 7PM)"
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was not operating. Could not recline my seat."
Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Fast check in"
Cons: "Unfriendly airhostesses, I asked fir a blanket as it was freezing but refused to bring me one"
Pros: "I like the fact that you could watch movies to make the time go by more quickly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. The isles are narrow and every time the gentleman across the isle got up to stretch his backside was in my face. The crew would come down the isle with the cart and about take my arm off."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew and boarding agents."
Cons: "Entertainment system on the Boeing 757 was not up to par compared with other international flights that I have taken in the past."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and cordial throughout the entire process."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Very small airplane for a 3 hours flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Adequately handled the 13 hr delay."
Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hrs for mechanical problems. Seems to be an ongoing problem w/ American Airlines now."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "Very nice and easy flight, the crew knew English very well"
Cons: "Everything was delayed, the boarding, the flight, the entrance to the airport when we landed in Liam."
Pros: "The stewardess was nice enough to give me water with my gingerale"
Cons: "We didn't take off until 3 hours after scheduled, and we're forced to watch ads on the overhead monitors for most of the flight. I was not impressed. Poor communication from the pilot."
Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Pros: "Better than united. Customer service is awesome"
Pros: "I was welcomed and make right at home"
Cons: "Did not like having to stay overnight in Charlotte but weather can do that to a traveler."
Cons: "Didn't like the way the flight attendant attitude was to me. No politeness what so ever. Turbulence was scary, from the hurricane coming in. And they no complimentary drinks or snack because we landed go quickly. It makes no sense to even have an in service flight with it only being 45 min fight."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "The air stewardess was friendly and courteous, the meal were tasty and sufficient."
Cons: "The flight came in early but we had to wait over thirty minutes for luggage to arrive."
Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"
Pros: "Nothing !"
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour before being departed. And then canceled and then they moved my Flight and that flight was delayed too. I miss my grandmothers service, I am very upset to say the lease. I am not pleased at all."
Cons: "Delayed for 'weather' but weather was fine and missed my connection by 10 min and needed to sleep the entire night in airport"
Cons: "When arriving in Charlotte North CAROLINA, waiting to board my next flight to Nashville, Tennessee, upon exiting the flight there was no mention as to check your boarding passes because of a change at the gate to our flight fiying back to Tennessee. So i go to the terminal and wait patiently at my gate for my flight to arrive. The departure came but it wasn't for Tennessee it was for Norfolk?? So when i went to the flight agent asked her what happened to the Tennessee flight, she said the flight left 2 hours ago. And when i mentioned no one said anything different about some gate checks had been changed. So i ended up missing my regular flight back home to Tennessee, no thanks to everyone involved, and had to wait an extra 2 hours to receive another flight back to Tennessee. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Very helpful people. From the from desk to the in flight crew they answered my questions. Had a weird gate where it's a satellite gate with American Eagle, little confusing but they helped me out."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for like an hour. 100% not their fault, and they kept us in the loop the whole time. Really not a complaint about them. SFO is just always sucked in with fig in the morning."
Cons: "Puddle jumpers are the hazard of living in a third tier market."
Cons: "The lack of communication, I received an email about my flight changing at 9am but I did not see it because I was at the airport. No one at the gate said anything to us until we started going to the counter. I was switched to a standby flight which the employee thought it was more important to get an employees husband on and offered me a seat for $1,300 in first class if I wanted to get on "that bad" or another flight 3 1/2 hours later that would not qualify me for a lunch ticket. That 1:40 flight was delayed and we stayed sitting in the plane waiting for permission to leave at 2:56pm. I was to be in NY at 3pm to meet my family on other flights but I got there at 6:30pm while they waited for hours!!! Communication is very important, I know that incidents happen, but this was ridiculous! The flight attendants even ran out of free pretzel snacks and offered items for purchase. Will not forget this experience for a while."
Cons: "I missed my flight because on the kayak app it said my flight left at 8:20 am and even said it was on time. When I got there it left at 7:20 instead and so I missed it.. You need to make sure it says the correct time on your app.. I ended up catching another flight to Seattle and spent the night in the airport and got to salt lake a day later. My family is out of state and it screwed all of our schedules up."
Overall everything was smooth and pleasant
Canceled my trip never flew. They were rude and uninformed. Caused me grief wanting another covid test even though I had one plus I am vaccinated. No excuse. They should have had a test station by their ticketing counter. Had to hunt for transportation which was very difficult since it was 10 pm. Rented car for 350 to get home. I would think twice before booking through Kayak and with BA. kayak should have had more assistance and not just sell the ticket. Both receive an F .
Cons: "The pancake was not cooked enough couldn’t eat it"

Cons: "I felt this seats could have been more comfortable, & I was very VERY disappointed that I had to check my carryon especially since it was a backpack and was not designed to check. One of my cosmetic products was even damaged because I had to quickly check my bag at the gate, to my final destination."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasnt working on the first flight, and had poor content on the second flight."
Pros: "Nothing particularly"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight attendant throws the tray of food all over me. Never apologize Worst flight ever I'm a Gold Frequent Flyer. No more!!! Good Bye British Airways Hello Cathay Pacific!"
Pros: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"
Cons: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"

Cons: "Even magazines were not available for 2 last raws"
Pros: "Service, clean restroom, courtesy of crew members"
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."
Cons: "No breakfast on out bound leg"
Cons: "Don’t do it!! Totally disorganized airline with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful"
Pros: "My upgrade."

Cons: "The airplane was shaking all the flight"
Pros: "The new flight procedures informational film at the beginning of the flight (BA/Comic Relief)"
Cons: "The flight was to Heathrow which was not prepared to accept us at all. We waited 45 minutes in passport control. I expect BA to make sure the port of destination is prepared to receive its passengers"
Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "Upgraded to world traveler plus was way more comfortable. The flight crew were so so nice and helpful. I am handicapped and they just couldn't do enough to make me comfortable."
Cons: "They the seats I reserved months ago were changed."
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"

Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"

Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Cons: "I received no information from British Airways! Luckily someone saw that all flights on BA had been canceled. This is the second time this has happened with British Airways. They have zero customer service and terrible communication."
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailingly helpful and polite. We paid extra for exit row seats, which were wonderful for my 6'6" husband's long legs."
Cons: "The food wasn't really edible, but the flight was only 5 hours long, so it wasn't a great issue."
Cons: "For some reason British Airways has a bug in its computers and does not allow me to check in on line. This is not the first time."
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Toronto late 4 HOURS!!!!! There is no excuse for such delay. Another plane should have been made available for the flight."

Pros: "Service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and the plane took off an hour late due to boarding inefficiencies)"
Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and not bossy. Plane was not crowded. Pilot made up most of our lost time (see other box). Ground crew were friendly and efficient in Toronto, getting to me to my departure gate in time. I was pleased to be offered a food voucher."
Cons: "Departure delay of 3 hours from Tel Aviv. Unruly Haredim should be left on the ground in Toronto, not in London. Food voucher was usable at only one outlet, and Burger Ranch is a greasy spoon. Would more choice be too difficult to organize?"
Pros: "Very accommodating with my seating requests; very kind staff and nice new plane"
Cons: "Got delayed in toronto for 24 hrs and there was a lot of waiting and disorganization"
Pros: "The food was good, staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left an hour late with no explanation, causing us to miss our connecting flight in Toronto. They did switch our boarding passes to a later flight, but only 1 of 3 pieces of luggage arrived in chicago (as did also to 4 other families on our flight) it took 2 more days until we received them."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants. Great food!"

Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."
Pros: "The service was very good and the flight felt safe and smooth."
Cons: "Very crowded plane with very little legroom (and I am 1.65m). The food could be improved. Entertainment was decent, but the design of the controls embedded in the armrest caused my neighbor to disrupt my programming often. It was inadvertent, but still annoying."
Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"
Cons: "Not on time. I missed my connecting flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Pros: "Everything was amazing! On time and nice flight!"
Cons: "I lost my book, if someone can contact me of where to retrieve it, that would be great! Thanks"

Cons: "Entertainment choices could have been a bit better. Would have preferred to be able to get seats more than 24 hours in advance as a group of 4 (without paying exra). I think we got the last 4 seats together."

Cons: "The seats are too tight"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."

Cons: "My vegetarian food choice did not transfer from my United Airlines profile"
Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."
Pros: "Love the new planes and choose aircanada for all my Tel Aviv flight because of this"
Cons: "Food is terrible and it's always very cold. Near the end of the flight the A/C started leaking water from the ceiling."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
Pros: "The crew appeared overworked and understaffed. I feel that there should have been at least 2 to 4 more to help with the large number of passengers on the plane. It appeared to be more than full and perhaps extra seating was added."
Cons: "The plane was overcrowded. Seating was extremely uncomfortable and much too narrow. I am a relatively thin person but the person to my right was large and kept on pushing into me during the entire flight. Plus it took us over an hour and 30 minutes before we left the airport because we had to wait until the entire plane off boarded before a wheelchair could be brought for my wife. After the wheelchair was brought and we picked up our luggage, (2 bags), which by the way were the last 2 on the carousel, there was only one line through customs for people with special needs. By the time we left the airport I spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the cab which had been sent from Rochester, NY to pick us up and when I finally found him he wasn't allowed to stop in the taxi lane to pick us up in the taxi lane because he wasn't an authorized cab in spite of the fact that I told the security person that my wife was in a wheelchair and the weather was close to 0 degrees celsus and it was snowing."
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "Friendly staff, not as crowded as most airlines"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like -- they might need a few more rest rooms for the coach classes"
Pros: "This was my first Air Canada flight, and I was beyond impressed with the service overall. The plane was extremely nice and very spacious. The flight crew was very attentive and helpful, and had great attitudes. I had trouble with my entertainment screen early on, and a flight attendant went out of her way to reset and make sure it was working for me. The 12 hour flights both ways were comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "I honestly can't say anything negative about this experience!"
Pros: "Would defently will choose AC again"
Pros: "Everything the Dteamliner experiance"
