Cons: All good but crew wasn't very attentive - for example i had had to put my suitcase quite a few rows back because of lack of space at the end of the flight i had to wait for most of the plane to empty out in order to be able to retrieve it - the crew member who had originally indicated i put my suitcase further back and who was standing right by the cabin where the suitcase was stored saw all of this but didn't move to help in the slightest even though he knew i was waiting for a chance to get to my suitcase - in my experience of customer service i would have gotten it for the passenger and brought it to them to reduce the wait time

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.
