One of our group travelled home alone and Etihad did a wonderful job of giving him assistance home. It was a long way for an 88-year-old man and he was really pleased with the service organised by your staff. Will certainly be talking to you again fairly soon.

BA staff at Johannesburg airport were very unhelpful. Asked to change seats to upper deck and were told it was full, no seats available. Asked to see screen to prove it and suddenly there were seats. They did change the seats and there were many empty seats. Bad attitude, but cabin staff were excellent
