Pros: "Phillapines was awesome and I want to go to Korea next the Philippines is building a new airport to cebu city maybe direct from N.Y. would be awesome"
Cons: "Eveything was seamless for a novice"
Pros: "My husband, my baby(14 months) and I took the flight from Hanoi to New York which was transferred in Korea. The flight from Hanoi to Korea got delayed so we have to fly with Asian Anna instead. The checking took so long and confusing. We barely made the flight from Hanoi to Korea and ran from different terminals to catch the flight from Korea to New York. We paid extra to select seat to sit to gether but then we found out it was just a joke to get money from Justfly since Korean Air said they only arranged seat at check in which we couldn’t check in as early as we wished due to the delay. And from Korea to New York, they lost our 4 luggages. How horrible could that be ? We are thinking about suing justly."
Pros: "Very professional crew good service"
Cons: "Nothing really pilot couldn't understand him but does it really matter unless is an emergency"
Pros: "Good food!"
Cons: "I dont know"
Pros: "Great Service, friendly staff, clean planes."
Cons: "Larger seats"
Cons: "Just the more than one hour departure delay. Reason given was that they were still waiting for passengers on a connect connecting flight. Then what was unusual was a manual head count of passengers which was out of the ordinary in this high tech world of modern air transportation"
Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "I liked that it was a seemles, smooth and easy operation during the entire trip from departure to arrival. Thank you for making traveling a pleasant and dreamy experience!"
Cons: "There wasn’t anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "The leg room was pretty generous compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Service of the flight attendants was excellent, they were courteous, pleasant and professional sort of like the old days of the flying industry. Language was a bit difficult for me to interpret however they took whatever time needed to make sure I understood their communication. Everything is tidy and clean. A good variety of movies, games, music and information channels was provided.I will fly korean Air in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge because the gate staff did not announce in English. It would be more organized if they boarded sets of rows in sequence instead of mass boarding for economy. Also had a problem with transfer at Bangkok Airport. Fortunately I had adequate time for the connecting flight but the transfer area was not opened until 7pm. The transfer process is all new to me and not really easy to understand until the first experience. The Arrival and departure boards rotate airline information which was initially difficult to understand. The headsets were a problem in reference to fitting, volume and quality of tone."
Pros: "cleanliness is very important to me, the constant tidiness esp. near the business class seat is wonderful i would fly Korean Air again because the planes are new. For future reference, how i wish they have domestic flights as well. Good luck to your continued good service."
Pros: "Bibimbap not available. Crew checked in our carry-on despite having space above our seats (Carry-on was not checked in during Chicago to Seoul trip). Unresponsive entertainment system. If this was only a ICN - MNL flight this is overpriced since it feels like a budget airline."

Cons: "Scrambled eggs were overlooked. Breakfast lacked variety. Otherwise, it was all good."
Pros: "The food, the service,the entertainment were the best. Every time the bathrooms were used they were cleaned, you never see that on US based flights, ever!!! Food was well prepared and tasted great. Will fly KAL every time I can"

Cons: "Food select"
Pros: "I am very impressed with this airline since stumbling upon it by chance last year during our first trip to the Philippines. We were greeted with a bottle of water, slippers and toothbrush w toothpaste, a blanket, earphones on our seat. The food is excellent and they feed you often. What was most impressive is the level of service provided by all Korean air staff. The stewardesses take great care of the passengers, always smiling and looking sharp in their uniform even though it's 3am and they have also been up the same time as you have!"

Cons: "Turbulence!!!!! Keep thinking the wings will fall off. Lol"
Pros: "Crew knew that I had a tight connection in Seattle so they moved me to first class for the last 20 min of the flight so that I could de-plane first. There were also representatives waiting in various locations throughout the airport with signs to make sure we made our connecting flights. A rep even met me at my next departure gate to ensure that I had made it!"
Pros: "Really nothing about American airline from Korea to Dallas. I Realy thaught it's going to b actual Korean air line operated by American air line. It was a total surprise and bad experience knowing that it was American airline aircraft."
Pros: "You need to have wifi"
Cons: "Get wifi"
Pros: "Flight to Seattle was great. Food and staff and flight were nice."
Cons: "Most everything. The flight back to Seoul was awful. Toilets weren't cleaned, trash overflowed, ran out of water, staff not pleasant - total opposite from outbound. Usually KA is goodness, but blew it this time."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nice planes & attendants. Clean."
Cons: "Had to get off Korean air in Seoul & go thru terribly bogged down customs, just to transfer & continue on another Korean air plane - both ways! Barely made it to my 2nd plane even though I practically ran thru the big airport after the customs delay - both on my way to Hanoi & on my return. Got to Vancouver & only found out by accident that my checked bag would NOT be transferred to my Seattle flight, even though my tag clearly said to pick it up in Seattle. Had to disembark, claim my bag, then go thru the departure procedure at Vancouver all over again, with 2 customs checks: enter Canada, re board to U.S."
Pros: "2engine prop plane run by Alaska Airlines was fun. Great views the whole way at low altitude. Flight too short for food or entertainment, irrelevant."

Pros: "Good food and service - great airline"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The airline went on strike and I have to go through the process of disputing the charges since I had no airplane to board. Really caused a problem since it was a international trip."
Pros: "Only fly on EVA when I go overseas. I have never had a bad experience with them, why change?"
Cons: "Board earlier so plane can leave on time."
Cons: "plane was 2 hours late, which sucks. they don't tell you it is going to be 2 hours late. you couldn't enter the boarding area (in Taiwan airport) until one hour before departure. if you you are familiar with Taiwan airport, then you know the a then they tell you the plane will be another hour late."

Pros: "I loved all the free food, even on short-haul flights!"
Cons: "Flying a different airline would have been better"
Pros: "Crew did their best despite the poor circumstances."

Cons: "We waited more than 40 mins for baggage."

Pros: "Premium economy equal to NA/Euro business class"
Pros: "Good international films. Food was ok."

Pros: "Exit row seats"
Cons: "Food was okay. Service especially drinks were sparse"
Pros: "It's hard to get a flight out of Vietnam one-time using their cheap local carriers so I went with an international brand. At $200 roundtrip, I was worried there were going to be a bunch of charges for things as well as delays. But low and behold, UNI/EVA seems to have figured out cheap tickets that run on schedule and includes all the normal perks like luggage. 1:50am flight is perfect, left Vietnam on time and even arrived in Taipei ahead of schedule! I would definitely fly them again."
Cons: "My only complaint is the lighting. There is too much going on in the cabin for a 1:50am flight. I wish they wouldn't serve food and not turn the lights on and off as its difficult to sleep. Also the flight attendants were very peculiar about just how much my bag was under the seat."
Pros: "Food is good"
Pros: "Liked the food and overall atmosphere. Stewardesses were great."

Pros: "Large crew that provides excellent service."

Cons: "Try to get an isle seat- seats feel small."
Pros: "Very professional and efficient Crew as always, horrible seat comfort,"
Cons: "there was absolutely no room to even lay down your arm beside you. This was for the flight segment from Taiwan To Vancouver. An almost 11 hour flight. Narrow tight seat I would never ride EVA air for this segment again. Terrible !"
Pros: "This review is for my flight to Philippines only as I cancelled my return to Vancouver to go to Europe. Comfortable seats in a new plane. IFE had a good selection. Food was good. Crew were friendly and helpful. Price was reasonable. Sleeping masks and earplugs were provided in the lavatory."
Cons: "My flight was able to be rerouted to Europe from Philippines. 2-3 month wait for a very small refund on my cancelled return flight (cancelled by me)."
Pros: "Punctual and comfortable flights. The lounge at KIX & TPE are both excellent."
Cons: "The quality of food on board needs to be improved. It is best to get a good meal in the lounge before boarding."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crew was not very nice. Always in a hurry. Customer service was not good"
Pros: "The food and entertainment are good."
Cons: "Although we were checking in ahead of most, we were getting the back seats which I am not comfortable with."

Pros: "Crew was most helpful and gracious."
Pros: "Pros: Multiple vegetarian options (Oriental option was very good) Metal utensils Thick blanket USB outlet for each seat Multiple serves of water throughout the flight Receptionists were nice Multiple amenities in the restrooms"
Cons: "Cons: Restless flight attendants (got stepped on the foot and no apologies) Flight attendants' English abilities were questionable (when I asked for a drink, they said "wait a moment" without further explanation. I think what they meant to say was "I don't have that on the cart right now, it will be delivered later." This happened multiple times, but one time I didn't even get any response. But then again, all they said was "you need to wait" in Chinese also so maybe they are just not polite in general) They could have had better movie selections Both flights were delayed"
Pros: "Had reclineable seat... Was able to sleep. ..."
Cons: "No complaints. ..."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. People were nice, friendly, patient, and overall just lovely. The flight was very smooth and the space was reasonable and better than comparable airlines in the same class. I always fly Eva."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is great"
Pros: "I would take EVA air again!"
Cons: "Second meal on board was served after 12 hrs. My kids & I were starving. They just kept giving water in between the 12 hr."
Pros: "Plentiful snacks, clean facilities"
Cons: "Food could have been better. Overall good value for the price paid."
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book 3 months ahead, they should put us in the front row seat instead so far to the back seat."
Pros: "Very relaxed atmosphere with helpful attendants, great food (Asian vegetarian special meal. I also appreciate the lounge while waiting. Altogether the tops, in a totally different realm (i.e. postitive) from flying on US carriers."
Cons: "Had some wine that was wayyyy past it's prime. Tasted more like cleaning fluid."
Pros: "Customer service was outstanding. After a debacle with Jetblue where they cancelled our originating flight, we booked another ticket through Delta to get to JFK. The Delta flight was delayed on the tarmac of JFK for 45 minutes, giving us only 15 minutes to go to the EVA terminal and check in. The terminal was nearly empty when we ran up to the counter. Luckily, the agents had not closed down yet. They attempted to check us in when they realized that the airline cancelled our ticket because our Jetblue originating flight was cancelled. The agents worked furiously to ensure we got on the flight, even communicating with the gate to let them know we were coming. They rebooked our tickets and got us on the plane. We are so appreciative of the EVA staff at JFK for saving our vacation."
Cons: "The food is alright. Equivalent to a TV dinner."
Pros: "Fine flight - only 30 min"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."
Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant and it was nice to get a drink of water, a cookie and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee"
Pros: "Great crew. Wine and cheese was nice."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "Free WiFi - was great and fast"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Flight tracker kept breaking."
Cons: "They don't come around with beverages hardly ever (twice on 13 hour flight) and they tend to skip the window seats. They tried to kick me off an overbooked flight even though I paid extra for a picked seat and booked months ago. Mediocre food. Tiny seats and I'm only 5'5". Will never fly again."
Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Pros: "Amazing airline and seem less travel"
Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"
Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"
Pros: "flight crew are good, other general categories are average."
Cons: "Boarding in both Sydney-Auckland & Auckland-Vancouver are disorganized. No clear indication of when & where to line up. No flight delay message to explain when boarding time was long overdue. In particular, for the Auckland - Vancouver flight, one ground staff was telling economy passengers (in rather rude express) they were in the wrong line except there was never announcement. Overall, disappointed."
Pros: "Small puddle jumper, but everything was well organized."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Our family nearly missed the trip due to delayed from Melbourne"
Pros: "All round excellent - great service, food et al."
Pros: "Staff and seating"
Cons: "Paying for movies on a long trip really stingy ☹"
Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"
Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"
Pros: "The flight was on time, staff courteous and we made good time to the destination."
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Pros: "Crew were lovely."
Cons: "Had a lot of hassle adding baggage to this leg of my trip on booking. At check in i was asked to pay $130 for baggage, which was no surprise. Luckily Air New Zealand ground staff sorted it out and I did not have to pay. I will book direct with the airlines next time."
Cons: "I added Luggage 16.5kg and they charge $130 AUS.The weak point is they are not showing luggage when we booked."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Crews' sense of humour"
Cons: "A bit of delay in take-off schedule"
Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"
Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."
Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "The fact that every possible thing was tajen 8nto account to connect us from our late arrival intetnational flight. Great team"
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
Pros: "We flew Air Canada’s Economy Plus from Vancouver to Sydney and Air New Zealand’s Economy Plus from Auckland back to Vancouver. NZ’s Economy Plus product is far and above AC’s. Everything from the welcome, to the meal, to the level of service is great. I really felt that NZ treated the Econ Plus cabin as distinct from Economy (including having 2 dedicated washrooms), whereas on AC it felt like we were merely Economy with better seats. I compare NZ and AC because we were so genuinely impressed with what we purchased. We would definitely book NZ Econ Plus again, and the January seat sale is a great time to do so!"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. NZ gets this product right."
Pros: "Everything ❤❤❤"
Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."

Pros: "The service and entertainment. And blankets to keep you warm because it does get cold on the plane."
Cons: "Small seats, no room."
Pros: "Snack ordering system Good service (picked up passenger's eye glasses when person was sleeping)"
Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."
Pros: "I was in Premium Economy and everything was wonderful! The food the entertainment system and extra legroom (with a leg rest!) was fantastic! I slept so well!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was non-eventful."
Cons: "I was "upgraded " to a seat facing a bulkhead, so leg room wasn't an issue. However, I missed the last half hour of my movie, because the screen had to be put back into the arm rest for landing."
Pros: "Unlike a trip on Air New Zealand several years ago, there is actually enough leg room now so knees don't push into the seat in front. That is a huge improvement! The airplane we flew in this trip was a nice new one, very well designed."
Cons: "No complaints! Air New Zealand really seems to be putting forward a god effort, and it shows. Hope they keep up these service standards and improvements over the past."
Pros: "The service in Premium Economy was outstanding with two dedicated and attentive staff members. The food was excellent and drinks served in real glass made a difference. the space was generous, seats comfortable, and pillows and blankets of a higher quality than economy. Overall a superior experience."
Cons: "Check in was a bit of a mess with no dedicated line for premium economy, business, or first class."
Pros: "Service etc etc absolutely fine"
Cons: "Handling at Melbourne Tullamarine was poor. The plane landed on time but was sent to the wrong dock and that caused a lot of time wastage. This seems to happen in Australian airports more than anywhere else."
Cons: "The service was excellent. The food was sometimes a challenge for me but that is just my food preferences."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Very attentive and efficient"
Cons: "Under 2 babies did not get enough milk They should have baby food items cereals, crackers or baby foods options"
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Pros: "The food was good and many entertaining movies."
Cons: "When first boarding the airplane and sitting in my assigned seat. There was terrible smell, the smell of vomit. I notified a crew member and she used a fragrance spray to help."
Cons: "The flight was excellent and the service was impeccable. The attention that they gave all the passengers including myself was excellent. Would Recomend to take Qatar from Bombay to Miami"
Cons: "Seats for its along way"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The internet service was not working!"
Pros: "Great flight in-service was fantastic. I didn’t use the entertainment service because is the old movies."
Cons: "Please include Nigerian and Ghana movies"
Pros: "Helpful,courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Wifi was hard to connect"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "Same again the crew were fab"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."
Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."
Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "I liked the pilot and staff. The workers were very friendly. P.S I loved the food"
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes late, with no explanation - even though we took off on time. Even with a short dog leg over Iran, we should have been able to make up any delay over an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Pros: "The personnel were at the CAI Airport and in the plae were just wonderful. I hope i will have the same experience the second leg if the trip from DOH to DFW"
Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "Very nice service"
Pros: "I would like to see you distribute toothbrush kits in economy class, even if you do not consider 7-8 hour legs as long haul flights"
Cons: "there were no toothbrush kits given out in economy class"
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was on time."
Cons: "They could have given the amenities, which I think they forgot"
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Crew was rude."

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Cons: "My trip was business class from US to Dubai: The attendant woke me up for lunch time to tell me you have only one option as all other options are already taken! Wifi service was not working the whole flight duration because it was not even installed yet on the new aircraft."

Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Movie choices"

Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "The chair and the food"
Pros: "The service was the best ever. Business class: The floor plan of seating was smartly laid out with plenty of room for storage. People were not crowded together and the food and drink were 5-stars!"
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Pros: "The seats are roomy in economy and the food and drink service is very nice. The entertainment offered is extensive."
Cons: "I was in 70G and there was a very difficult family next to me. It was not the crew's fault but it made the trip very uncomfortable for me..."
Cons: "Not the best cabin crew. Not friendly. Every service provided by them seemed like a unnecessary chore done rather than hospitality promised by the Emirates name."
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
