I called Etihad call center in muscat and the lady who answered me confirmed that i can take 6 bags,each is less than 32 kg. At the airport, they refused to check my bags as 3 of them were above 25 kg. I tried to convince them that i had a confirmation from the call center that i can take 6 bags,less than 32 kg but they refused. I had to buy a cartoon, to remove my clothes infront of people, put clothes in thhe cartoon then to wrap it.!!! It was the most terrible flight in my life!!!"

I was travelling with a 2 year old who was not badly behaved and yet instead of helping or asking if I needed anything, the crew behaved as if they were doing me a great favour when asked for something."
Pros: "Crew service was good enough."
Cons: "Boarding service was just rubbish."
Cons: "Food wasn't as expected"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."

Pros: "less crowd"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food was good. Plane was clean."
Cons: "The checkin process at the Lahore Airport was horrific. Probably won't fly out of there again. The queues were a joke. Most passengers were cutting queues with the help of officials they had bribed. Shockingly one airport staff member checked in five passengers in front of me who weren't even At the airport. This lot was issued boarding passes and luggage tags without a problems. An immigration officer also stamped their passports without a question. No wonder Pakistan is and will always be a third world country. Despite the excessive airline and airport staff the simple process took me over an hour. I only got my turn after arguing and pleading my case with the airline staff repeatedly. Seriously this is the worst airport to fly out off!! You have been warned. Use Lahore airport at your own risk!!"
Cons: "Disembarked through stairs despite tunnel available, seems the front gates of plane did not open. Also they transported the passengers in normal coasters not through airport bus"
Pros: "I like the comfartability of flight"
Cons: "everythimg was good"
