Disadvantages: Too many movies to watch in one flight means a tough choice
I recently flew a return flight on Etihad to Bangkok and back to London Heathrow. After travelling on Ryanair for most of my last 3 years of flying (only to Europe) Etihad was actually amazing. The check-in was super quick and opened 3 hours before with about 6 desks open for arriving passengers. The staff were really polite and the cleanliness of the plane was even better. After settling in my seat I was given headphones and complimentary pillow and blanket for the journey which wasn't actually really needed as the plane was at a pretty good temperature anyway considering Ryanair try to freeze you to death on their flights. The food during the journey was top notch, as I had chicken with roast potatoes and veg on the way out followed by apple crumble (what more could you ask for!) and thats coming from someone who has always been a "I don't like aeroplane food" kinda guy. And finally, the best part of the whole package is the entertainment they give you whilst your flying...A choice of around 40 movies, ranging from lil kiddie flick to hardcore horror is available and on one 15 hour flight I managed to watch 6 movies- needless to say the great entertainment package given on Etihad may even be dangerous! So to finalise, Etihad is a great airline to fly with and I recommend it greatly to anyone flying long haul as the time will fly by whilst your being served Michelin rated (OK, I may be exaggerating) meals and being served by really friendly staff!
Summary: Great Service, Great Entertainment, Great Food, GREAT AIRLINE!
