    Hi, I havent flown with Etihad before, but they are a 4 (out of 5) star airline. I have been going to an independant website to check up on airlines:

    Its a great website, so check it out!
    Hope this helps??

    Im flying over with Etihad aswell in a just over 4 weeks.

    I’d never heard of them before the travel agent mentioned them, and there prices compared to other airlines was to good to pass up.

    Our friends have flown with them recently and they said there awesome, and didnt have any problems.

    I’ve flown Etihad twice before – they’re a good airline. You’ll find that the only time people can be bothered to write reviews is when they’ve had a bad experience. You’ll have no worries.

    Etihad is a great airline, my collegue flew with them not long ago and she said they’re fantastic. Emirates, Etihad and Singapore Airlines are the first airlines I check when booking clients to Europe..all excellent Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I’ve flown internationally with china airlines, british airways, quantas and etihad and think etihad are actually the best by far.

    I flew with Etihad last year and was really happy I decided to go with them.

    I have since also had family fly with them who gave the same response.

    Like you, I read reviews about Etihad before I left which made me apprehensive about my decision but believe me, I quickly forgot them while I was on board. Sometimes you have to put reviews into perspective. People are usually more likely to complain than to give praise!

    Hope this helps with your decision!

    oh and PS – food was great! (My partner swears he had better food on the plane with them than some of the restaurants we went to overseas!)
