Ah, the wonders of English and split infinitives. If I'd got my grammar correct, it might have been more clear. I was not describing CSV as effective itself, just the act of replacing Excel with CSV. Even with correct grammar, it remains a sentence that would have been unclear. Better than what I wrote, but unclear.
I too would prefer to keep the Excel exports, at least until CSV is as good as they were.
Yes it seems it is a feature missing from the cloud version.

How difficult can it be for JIRA to create a real Excel file? Lesser minds have surmounted this obstacle!
I thoroughly expect JIRA to support Excel Export without having to pay extra. If that is via "Better Excel Plugin" - great! But I don't see why we should pay more because they have removed a feature.
And in 2016, getting something to write Excel files, even on Linux is entirely possible, and indeed rather trivial if one doesn't get too fancy.
With ImpEx you can import and export your issues to XLSX or HTML (even with comments, images and attachments)!
