I flew on Saturday 4th August, easy check in with Etihad but Manchester Airport Security check was a joke with the staff rowing with each other and were removed by their manager.
Flight was on time and very comfortable in economy. Staff were really nice and drinks were plentiful. The only issue was the food which was pretty bad from Manchester to Abu Dhabi but from there to Perth the food was even worse, they said it was chicken pie, it was weak mashed potatoes with very small pieces of chicken and veg hidden inside, no taste at all.
Flight cost £1,100 you would think they could spend more than a fiver on the food. Having said that I would fly with them again as I don’t think the food is any better on the other carriers.
