Pros: "Crew made the flight a pleasant time dispute the 13 hours in the air. Good service, Good food and reasonably comfortable accommodations."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs some updating - kept freezing and needed to rebooted to continue watching. Wouldn't normally care but with all that time captured in air you need it to work."

Pros: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR. Only good thing was that Emirates gave me a boarding pass to a later flight and a meal voucher that was accepted with bad grace by the barista at terminal B Costas. Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"

Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "There was no hotel reservation and I have to pay out of pocket. Why? I need a refund. You guys are responsible for that."

Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."

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."

Cons: "Awesome"

Pros: "All other service was ok except not giving hotel room for staying for the purpose of connection..."
Cons: "Stay over night for connection and emirate dine giving hotel"

Pros: "Easy, friendly and comfortable."
Cons: "Last row seats so was a bit noisy. But nothing too bad."

Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."

Pros: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."

Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"
Cons: "Little more leg room. When the chair in front of younreclines ot gets a little tight."

Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."
Cons: "Delayed flight with little or no apology. Lots of waiting and an attitude of - this is just how it is. That's true, but information goes a long way to smooth delay situations. Emirates failed at this."

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 like the food."

Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."

Pros: "Affordable price"

Cons: "They have been a nightmare to deal with and outright unethical. I do not plan to use Kayak any more due to this situation"

Pros: "service"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Great flight, service, food and crew."

Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "So cramped"

Pros: "Terrible experiences overall and food is very bad."

Pros: "The food and the entertainment onboard."
Cons: "Flight was late and i missed my connecting flight in Sydney."

Cons: "There was no organization for those of us that were moved to that flight. Shifted from 4 different lines and luggage was not sorted out after customs. Our luggage didn't make it on our flight since someone said since it said CVG, it would be fine. It wasn't."

Pros: "The legroom my seat had - It was near the exit and didn't have a seat in front of it. The flight was only half full which meant room for everyone to spread out."
Cons: "There was hardly any service. The flight left at 9:30pm. We were served dinner an hour later and given a bottled water. Then we never saw any of the attendants until 10 hours later. I had to hunt someone down in order to get some more water."

Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and entertainment options."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We DIDN"T GET TO FLY TO SYDNEY. We were re-routed to SAN FRAN, then to Melbourne! WE MISSED TWO DAYS of our trip!!"

Cons: "Seat backs recline violently and require help from behind to put upright. Cabin crew was less than interested in passenger service . Seat space was less than proper."

Cons: "An old plane for a long haul to Australia, uncomfortable seats, freezing temperature in the cabin, mediocre food. Not what a traveler expects in business class in today’s travel world."

Cons: "American airlines dont know what passengers need to enter a country and then rebooked me on new zealand air but quantos changed that and i dont know where my bags are. Does the insurance i bought cover any if not all of these inconveniences."

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Pros: "The staff were polite and they took care of us well."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled the first night and then was also cancelled the next night I just happened to have been moved to an earlier flight so I didn't get stuck there the second day."

Pros: "Fantastic. the crew was very kind and professional. Food was the best airplane food I have had so far."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Cons: "I paid to select aisle seating but upon board found out my seating was the middle seat."

Pros: "Crew member Alex in the Economy main cabin was wonderful. He tried to memorise as many passenger names as he could as they boarded, and clearly has an amazing capacity to do so. His attitude -- that doing this is worthwhile -- is unusual and highly commendable. He immediately put people at ease. He was attentive, helpful, and very pleasant to all passengers throughout the very long journey. He was a remarkable crew member, turning a journey I had dreaded into one that was memorable."

Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."

Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, little to no turbulence, all around a great flight!"
Cons: "When seat in front of you is reclined it takes away a lot of your personal space and makes it impossible to get up to go to bathroom"

Pros: "Everything except the cabin temperature."
Cons: "Some cabins had no heat. Other cabins had no air conditioning. My cabin was sweltering, which made it difficult to sleep and to be anything other than uncomfortable on the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."

Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The business class seats are average at best. The dinner service is good but not well coordinated. The cheese platter at dessert is really anticlimactic. I look forward to international biz class meals, but I want this to be better."

Pros: "Staff was very helpful and everything moved quickly and on time!"
Cons: "The arm rest next to mine would not stay in the upright position. That is the biggest problem I had."

Cons: "Did not receive breakfast and had a cup of coffee wanted a second cup and they said they had already shut everything down and we still had 1.5 hours before landing"

Pros: "Service! Dinner was good, breakfast was a bit more hit and miss. Plane is quieter than most."
Cons: "Seats were like rocks. Business class, lay flat beds - even with the padded "sheet" they provide are abysmal. So much so that I cannot recommend the airline and will not fly them again."

Cons: "They put me in a broken seat in business class for which I had to call a flight attendant every time I wanted to adjust it."

Pros: "Friendly Service and free drinks"
Cons: "Long flight"

Pros: "The A380 is pretty good for soaking up the typical bumps of air travel. This flight was the first where the lamding was so soft that the plane didn't jolt on landing. It made noise like we'd touched down, but the ground effect glide was perfectly choreographed by the crew. Nice job."
Cons: "There was an exceptionally narcissistic young man from China behind me who stood up and complaoned during rollout that he couldn't recline his seat. The crew suggested I relocate to a better seat. That was very nice and thougtful."

Pros: "Service was good and having open seats next to us made it manageable."
Cons: "Kids meals lacked vegetarian options"

Pros: "We were very needy due to being a large group with elderly passenger. The staff were very patient, tolerant and courteous with us"

Pros: "Everything! Best Airline!"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I booked through justfly and then that flight was cancelled and they put me on a United flight to SFO and changed my seating to a middle seat, when I had paid for a window seat. They would do anything to change it back or refund me my money."

Cons: "I landed in Sydney but had a Qantas connecting flight to Melbourne. The baggage was checked in at Dallas thru to Melbourne. You need to drop off the baggage back to Qantas after clearing Customs in Sydney. Unfortunately Qantas makes you walk quite a long distance to to baggage drop off point. The experience made me think of experiences I have had in developing countries. I expected more thoughtful logistical arrangements from Qantas in Australia."

Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fantastic crew on the upper deck who were trying everything they could to make me and my partner comfortable while trying to find a replacement seat with working TV equipment."
Cons: "Seats very narrow, passengers behind kicking seats because not happy that I needed to recline to sleep. Failing equipment - the TV wouldn't operate on original seat, and on new seat, the touch screen didn't work on the entire left side of the screen. The only reason I flew qantas was because I thought they had better equipment. Crew on lower deck clearly not as dedicated to service. After being moved here in the hopes of getting a new seat with a working entertainment system I knew the service would be worse - and it was."

Pros: "It was nice that the flight was not full and we were able to stretch out in neighbouring seats. It was nice that the lights were left low for longer than a night's sleep, as not everyone wants to sleep at the same time on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food service was slow, and refills were not offered as has been the case on many other trans Pacific flights I have been on. Also we did not receive the mid flight snack that was listed on the menu. The meals themselves were not as tasty, varied, nor as filling as those on Fiji Airways and United Airlines. My dinner had only pasta with sauce in the container, with no other vegetable offered. I was still hungry after eating my breakfast, and I was only offered tea, when I expected both a choice of juice and tea."

Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and supportive. The premium economy meal was excellent."
Cons: "The seats were small so the overweight person next to me used up a lot of my personal space."

Pros: "Almost 17h is a LOOOONG flight, so it could have been awful... Thankfully it was not crowded, though, so I had a centre row to myself! Actually managed to get more than 4h of sleep. Loved the SkyCam, especially since we followed the full moon all the way."

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Entertainment was slow, limited selection and didn't work in a bunch of our seats. Flight was delayed 3 almost 4 hours and threw off the sleeping plan for our kids. No explanation other than " we are running late" and no compensation."

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Pros: "I loved being able to track my flight on board and the landing. That was very neat."

Cons: "Was forced to check my carry-on by very unaccommodating desk staff only to board the aircraft to see tons of overhead bin space..."
