Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Pros: "I am a very tall man, 205cm, and I am always worried when I travel that I would not get the first raw or emergency seat. But Emirates always pays attention to my problem. And the economy class seats on Emirates have more leg rooms than on other airlines."
Cons: "I could not use the onboard wifi on the flight from Jakarta to Dubai (Boeing 777 300er) and from Dubai to Amsterdam (Airbus A380)."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."

Cons: "Nothing. It was great."
Pros: "The service was great and the entertainment tv worked better than the first plane."
Cons: "We waited a lot in the bus that took us to the plane without moving. It would have been better if we stayed in the waiting area until the bus and the route was cleared to take us to the plane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."
Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"

Pros: "Entertainment system really good - great choice and great screen sizel"
Cons: "Lack of choice on main meal"
Pros: "Food was good and seating was comfortable."
Cons: "That i could not step out for a 7 hour layover in dubai. transit visa should be granted even for that duration."
Pros: "Tons of movies!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "But the next morning I became violently ill and had to be hospitalized. Before we took off Emirates reported they were deciding whether to remove a sick passenger from the plane before taking off, which they ultimately did. I wonder if everyone on the flight got sick."
Pros: "Overall experiance."
Cons: "Nothing specially."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."
Pros: "It felt like home. =)"
Cons: "it felt too much like home. ;)"
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth ride new plane from SF to Dubail"
Cons: "Business class too expensive for individual travelers"
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "The food was much better than on the Board of BKK-Dubai, as well the kindness of the crew."
Cons: "The crew hardly paid attention to request. I had to ping multiple times and wait for really long time to get a glass of water. I tried to get to the back, the crew dint even move to help us with anything. They sat together and were talking and dint even care to move. I have never seen this amount of careless attitude so far in emirates. Food quality has gone down quite a bit compared to my travel before."
Pros: "Airbus 380 is my favorite plane; the entertainment selection was very good."
Cons: "Dinner featured a salad of potatoes and green beans and the entree included potatoes and green beans, a repetition that seemed odd. According to the printed menu, the passengers had a choice of lamb or chicken, but I only heard the flight attendant offering chicken - no mention of lamb. The food was much better on the Rome to Dubai leg of our trip, as was the service."
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."

Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"
Pros: "Entertainment center was great many series."
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"
Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Pros: "Kind crew. Comfortable space for economy."
Cons: "The food was not even edible. The entertainment was minimal."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Economy class seats are never super comfy, however, they were just fine."

Pros: "Food was nice, could have been a little bigger. Staff were friendly ... well, except one lady."
Cons: "expected to need the Qantas entertainment app, so didn't pick up headphones from the terminal before departure. However, it was an older plane with seat back TVs (and less choice)."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Seats were fine, crew was cherry nice and professional. Enough toilets for the size of the plane."
Cons: "Airplane food is always what it is."
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Cons: "i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!"

Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."
Cons: "9 hour delay and zero assistance rearranging car rentals, hotels, EXPENSIVE transfer between airport terminals"
Pros: "Great service and comfort"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hr 30 min because of catering issues. Because of that only one hot meal for 14 hr flight. Diabetic food was the worst I ever had. My prepaid seat for extra $35 AUD wasn't available. The seat was uncomfortable and the pillow was huge - I had to put it on a floor. I am surprised why Qantas is rated #9 among best airlines for 2016. I will try to avoid Qantas in the gorier."
Pros: "Fast efficient. Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Tray table dirty :("
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."
Cons: "the plane was small, old, not comfortable and not remotely up to the standards that we expect from Qantas or the A380s we typically get from CA to SYD. If I book Qantas - I expect a certain level of service - otherwise, I would save the money and just go with the cheapest airline."
Pros: "Crew are professional and food is good quality!"
Cons: "The cabin is way too old and out of date, especially considering alternative business class options. Time for an update Wantas before it hits your bottom line (if it hasn't already)."
Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."
Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"
Pros: "Crew were really good"
Cons: "Using an old plane for a cross country flight was ridiculous"
Pros: "Great everything by Qantas - couldn't fault any aspect of the service"
Cons: "Not good that traffic backed up 800 metres to get to drop off zone!"
Cons: "Food on board from Syndey to Melbourne"
Cons: "very limited choices compared tpo sydney to san francisco leg of trip. old technology."
