We were well looked after both going to India and returning. The seats were reasonably comfortable and we were able to relax. It was a long flight, involving one stop which gave us the chance to stretch our legs. Food was good and happily for us the plane made very good time.

The entertainment is on the screen in front of every seat, that is almost normal for every international flight. The passenger is not full. I have a very well sleep in...

Though I am fond of Etihad and it is always my choice; but the last trip back and forth was not the best. Both ways my chair had to be upright because the button is not working ones, and another because I was told it is near the exist. Therefore, I was not comfortable and could not sleep at all....

This is absolutely the worse possible aircraft ATR 72 that you can imagine. Do not fly with this company if you care for your life. This is very, very old, small aircraft, noisy as well. I am truely shocked that Adria Airways has so low criteria. I will never use this company again.

Typical regional airline (although far above US standards for regional airlines). Attentive service, onboard meals and beverages.

The flight was delayed for almost two hours. Weather issues as well as engineering issues they said....but after fuelling, the plane shortly took off...just unfortunate it was behind schedule. However, the crew are much nicer than other crew members from other airlines ( cough cough- United) and they tried their best. Snack was good and I like the extra legroom...so...

Unfortunately again not the best experience with Etihad regional flight. Initially the flight was on time but just 5 mins before departure the company declared that the flight is delayed as the crew is late!!
