Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great food & great entertainment. Love the free WiFi"

Pros: "Relaxing Cabin crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not that I can think if"

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The entertainment tv didn’t stay in the right position and the touchscreen didn’t respond all the time."

Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."

Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"

Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Pros: "good entertainment, great staff"
Cons: "plane a little older, but all in, it was fine"

Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."

Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Loved the leg room, very friendly staff, the cabin was a nice temperature."
Cons: "Based on this flight alone, I have no complaints. Looking forward to flying with Emirates again."

Cons: "again the boarding was an issue. the boarding time was listed at 1:45 am and we arrived at the gate then but there were no announcements about the flight and then the sign said final boarding call. Also for a 14 hour flight there needs to be bottles of water handed out and someone should be on board to clean the rest rooms half way thru the trip"

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Cons: "The screen not working I feel very bored"

Cons: "They lost one of my bags. I had to file a complaint with emirates office."

Pros: "Helpful staff,gave me seats requested,meals pretty good,good entertainment,even got to see despicable me 3 and didn't need a kid."
Cons: "Would have loved business class,but what can u do,only thing was I had to remind about my skywards miles.."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."

Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."

Cons: "We already quoted vegetarian but they failed to serve vegetarian, but they arranged substitute that is happy to me."

Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"

Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Accra yesterday at 5:50pm. The flight was unexpectedly cancelled and the stranded passengers like myself were corralled to a nearby hotel. The flight has since been rescheduled several times today and settled to finally leave at midnight this evening. I missed my connection but it has also been rescheduled, but I doubt I will make it. Emirates has left me stranded. It's ridiculous how they failed to keep us accurately informed."

Pros: "Food and crew"

Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"
Cons: "We had to negotiate with passengers to get our children together as we had been allocated scattered seats It is very irritating to see that you need to pay extra to get your seats in advance which is like any other budget airline, not expected of Emirates"

Cons: "I shouldn't be forced to change my seat just because a hostess told me to then she was rude to me because I didn't then I finally changed my seat and she was ok- I don't think this is appropriate"

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"

Cons: "The economy seats are too narrow and 10 abreast on a 777 is one too many seats."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"

Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."

Pros: "Short flight, excellent service."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."

Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "MORE STAFF NEEDED ON FLIGHT"
Cons: "PRESSURE ON STAFF"

Cons: "Quality of mattress is way inferior to the one given in the Boston to Dubai leg."

Pros: "The planes were very comfortable and the boarding was very well organized, especially for parents eith children."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very helpful and they were a little condescending."

Pros: "The Emirates flight was great. Everything was efficient. Crews were extremely nice and helpful. In flight entertainment was great."

Pros: "This flight was so good, I did not want it to end! I will choose to fly Emirates any chance I get."

Pros: "Flight overall was fine but not the standard that we had on the trans Atlantic potion"

"MY travel plans were canceled and l tried thru KAYAK and Quantas to cancel this flight and was not able to confirm cancelation but still received flight boarding. l tried to get refunded thru Kayak and that has been horrible long unreasolved task now l am trying to go thru Credit card. with this Covid changing world, airlines and travel companies should be refundable especially since this is a Australian airlines. l am about to lose $1000.00."

Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Pros: "Assistance with moving through airport due to a disability"

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Nice amenities, very efficient"

Pros: "Great crew and good food."
Cons: "Delayed departing."

Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "WiFi was intermittent and if Qantas is going to rely on us to bring the equipment then they better get the service reliability right. I don’t see ticket prices or wine quality improving by passing entertainment infrastructure on to us..."

Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."

Cons: "I paid extra to pick a seat so I can sit with my friends and once I boarded the plane I realized it had been changed. So I spent $60 for nothing. Why charge for seat assignment if it will change??!!"

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."

Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Cons: "Very good airlines"

Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."

Pros: "Online check in"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganised, food was cold and tasteless (chicken noodle) not helped that I had to wait for cutlery to be able to eat it"

Cons: "I missed my flight. My flight from Melbourne with Qantas was delayed. I received an express connection ticket to go through Immigration, customs, etcetera. I ran, all for nothing. I should have known better, for sure. 2 hours is unrealistic. But this tickets shouldn't be offered, they give the impression that you can make it. And the staff in Melbourne, and the crew on the plane, all were extremely reassuring. I got to the gate of Alaska Airlines, the people there could only offer me a ticket two days later. And basically they said it was Qantas fault. Having almost no time and no clear way to communicate with Qantas (the 1800 number is useless), I had to book and pay a new ticket. Now I am going to try to contact Qantas for reimbursement but I am not optimistic. In summary, do not buy these types of tickets "in collaboration" with two companies. Especially if you make the connection in the US. It is a scam. 2 hours is no time. And even if you have 3 or 4 hours and there is a delay, you are basically on your own, and the companies give the responsibilities to each other."

Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Cons: "Check in personal at Australia was very bad attitude and service"

Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."

Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Entertainiment screen was not working properly. Bad food. I could not check in online. Okay customer service."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was very poor and the entertainment was awful. The touch screen barely worked and the sound system was hard to listen to. I was forced to use the airline headphones. I was always losing sound."

Pros: "even though i am Qantas life time gold, my silver emirates membership would not get me itto Qantas line in Melbourne. i had to change the flight attribution to Qantas"
Cons: "went i couldn't use my Qantas membership to access Melbourne lounge"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "I noticed duct tape repairs on the chair in front of me. Also the armrest between my partner and my chair was broken and wouldn't stay up. The food was average. I've noticed a huge decline in food quality from 4 years ago. Also the airline's choice to serve stinky fish on a plane was questionable."

Pros: "I knew what to do without having been there before, thanks to electronic info available at my seat, in-flight announcements and signage at the airport."

Pros: "Entire flight there was no comfort- crew was brash and unfriendly -"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"

Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"

Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"

Pros: "I was accommodated excellently as I required wheelchair access and ease and comfort as I was recovering from major surgery. The return seating in upper level was most appreciated . A big thanks to the cabin crew especially Oscar."
Cons: "When I originally had to call to organise seating requirements and wheelchair access, I was in hold for 1.5 hours before I spoke to someone ."

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: "Crew was nice and offered extra drinks when asked."
Cons: "Screaming crying babies"

Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."

Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."

Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Inflight service."
Cons: "Headsets tend to fail. Is good that more than one were provided."
