My Experience of flying Etihad (Jul 15th, 2018), started with a serious negative impression, when my seat allocation was done by Etihad automatically, and despite my "Aisle" seat preference, I was allotted a middle seat from BLR to Abu Dhabi, and a window seat from Abu Dhabi to JFK. When I asked for an aisle seat at the time of checkin, I was shamelessly asked to shell out more money, which I declined.
Having said that, the overall experience from Bangalore to Abu Dhabi was FORGETTABLE to say the least, though the flight experience from Abu Dhabi to JFK was nothing to complain about (except the window seat).
I would specifically want to talk about my flight experience from Bangalore to Abu Dhabi. The cabin crew I met was MOST RUDE that I ever met. They served the mandatory food yes, besides they were just not ready to ask for any drink, leave aside if I needed something beyond that. When I got tired of waiting, I asked them to get me a black coffee, and the crew never returned. After waiting for 40 mins, I asked them again and voilla, the reply was that we were descending, hence not possible. WOWWWWWWWWW. I got agitated enough to tell the lady that if she were to get me my drink at the correct time, it would have been much before we started descending.
The crew made no bones to hide their irritation towards all passengers overall, as I was not the odd person out.
Would not fly ETIHAD if I have any other choice to fly.
