We started from Sydney to Abu Dhabi with an overnight stay and onto Dublin , similar on our return flight . Seating was fine , in fact we struck it lucky for economy , we had a great travel agent who arranged it . The staff were great and attentive , but what let’s them down is the food , bloody awful . I would call it stodge , slop in other words . We have flown with Singapore, Quantas , Emirates , etc . They need to take a leaf out of their book . The food was the no 1 complaint amongst fellow travelers , Example : Stale bread rolls served cold , 4 cubes of lamb served with a mound of rice , little rolls with a tomato paste style sauce and a meat unknown to me , or a chicken salad roll , with no chicken or salad . Breakfast , disgusting some sort of scrambled eggs . Food on long flights can make a difference . I hope they improve their game .
