In December 2019 we travelled from Sydney to Rome with a stop over in Abu Dhabi (of course). On each leg, including the return, I found the cabin staff to be friendly and accommodating. We flew economy and overall I found the leg room adequate, the food was okay, and the service was commendable. We are fortunate to have lounge access and the service, food, and staff in the Abu Dhabi lounge were exceptional. I'd fly this service again, mostly because it's a partner airline to our frequent flyer program and because it's comparable, if not slightly ahead, of other international services I've flown.
