Pros: Aircraft are nice and clean with good legroom.

Cons: Ground staff was re-weighing cabin baggage to charge extra fee during transit flight, When the crew at first leg of the journey had okayed my baggage I had already paid for extra baggage so had to argue with ground staff to resist paying extra.

Pros: The crew on flight was nice

Cons: Same cannot be said for ground staff including managers. I had to explain several times that crowds are a trigger for my son with autism. I asked for preferential boarding, was given any. Asked for assistance with security, this was only given after I had to fight for it. Staff need to be aware that when we ask for it, it’s not because we want preferential treatment, we are trying to avoid a meltdown for our kids that get super stressed out by situations such as these. My child cannot stand still for long and runs away. When I stopped him to talk him though the process so he doesn’t run, we got hurried. Empathy will go a long way....

The three people behind us continued kicking our seats and after two attempts to resolve, they got aggressive and loud. Very uncomfortable and frustrating for 15 hours flying.

I had a senior citizen travelling with me in business class while I was travelling in Economy. The return trip from Chicago was okay. However, the ground crew need proper training and need to ensure proper handling of passengers who have special needs. There were two people who needed wheel chair access including my mom. While they got a wheel chair for a person whose travels ended in Abu Dhabi, they did not accomodate for my mom who needed wheel chair access as well. They wanted her to walk instead. They made a big deal in providing wheel chair access to her and only provided the wheel chair once we strongly complained about it. This was also an issue as the plane was not connected via a jetway and was connected with stair cases. They were informed previously that my mom needed wheel chair access through out her trip. It was just a general lack of planning on Etihad's part. The flight was delayed due to technical issues as well and we left 30 minutes late. In addition, my mom was requested the Asian Meal and she was informed that the Asian Meal was not requested in business class. This was deplorable as she was unable to eat much on the flight from Abu Dhabi to Chicago. All in all, the business class experience was not great and would consider other airlines who could do a better job in handling special requests. The departure flight from Chicago was a different experience and the crew on the oubound flight from Chicago was extremely helpful and provided food choices that my mom enjoyed. That was thee epectation from Etihad on our return. However, the ground crew and the in-flight crew were more mediocre in providing the service. My mom did not sleep well on the flight as well and did not have much appreciation for the in-flight entertainment. For a business class expereince, the expectations were higher. However, the experience turned out to be more mediocre.
