6-year-old girl rates Etihad flight experience as 1/10. Founder dad says ‘all because Emirates…’

Apr 12, 2024 09:08 AM IST

“Never underestimate kids; they're the future customers,” reads a comment to the post about a 6-year-old girl rating her experience with Etihad Airways as 1/10.

An entrepreneur recently travelled on Etihad Airways’ business class with his six-year-old daughter. After their flight, the airline sent his daughter a survey asking about her flight experience. The father allowed his daughter to complete the feedback form and said that it was a “bloodbath”. He further shared that his daughter gave the airline a rating of 1 out of 10.

The founder also explained why his daughter gave Etihad Airways a poor rating after her journey. It has an Emirates connection. (X/@drdoot)

Mark Ross-Smith, the CEO of a Singapore-based company, on X shared some feedback that his daughter provided to the airline. He wrote, “Flight was bad because her school friends were not on it. Kids’ meal was not good because it lacked chocolate. Hot towel service was not offered to kids. Biz + economy kids pack were identical. She wanted more. Videos didn’t start until we took off, ie, IFE on Etihad doesn’t start until airborne. No pyjamas.”

He shared that the survey also included a question about the likelihood of recommending the airline to friends and family. The kid then rated the airline with a score of 1 out of 10.

Ross-Smith explained the reason behind the poor rating. He said, “All because Emirates crew gave her chocolates while Etihad did not.”
