Terrible!
This cheap company merged 3 flights from other flying companies in one airplane. The airplane was stacked with people and we sat there for 1 hour before take off without AC in KSA where it's flaming hot!
We asked for air conditioning and they responded that it will be on once we're in the air.
Terrible experience.

Well, well, well, looks like someone took a ride on the luxury express with Etihad, only to have their dreams shattered along with their luggage! Talk about a bumpy landing! It's a shame those meticulously crafted commercials didn't come with a disclaimer: "Handle with care or else!"
Now, about those two beloved trolley bags – brutalized, broken, and left for dead. Who's gonna foot the bill for this baggage massacre? It's not like we're talking about cheap plastic here; these babies cost a pretty penny! Etihad, you've got some explaining to do! The world demands answers, and it won't rest until justice is served. So, buckle up, Etihad, because the bill for your baggage blunder is coming your way, and it's gonna hit harder than turbulence at 30,000 feet. Time to pay up and make things right, or prepare for some serious turbulence of your own!

An absolute piece of an airline.
They refused to cancel this flight despite a war breaking out. Obviously no one flew, but because it wasn't cancelled and individuals had to cancel, no one was provided with a refund. They refunded the tax in their credit which they promptly cancelled if you booked 12 months before the flight.
A short-sighted, pathetic airline.
I would never fly with them again.

Worst airline. Cramped seats. Ran out of food on flight to Abu Dhabi. Also ran out of food in the way home. Freezing cold and uncomfortable flight. Poor choice of films. Heard how good they were and looking forward to flight. So disappointed. Need to up there game!
