Pros: "crew responding to the request, supportive"
Cons: "food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so..."

Pros: "Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"

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

Pros: "The ground staff at Emirates check-in counter who so kindly changed my seating to isle as requested and updated my Skywards membership nbr on their data base. It enabled me to board the flight amongst the 1st and business class passengers."
Cons: "Nothing in Particular"

Pros: "Entertainment and great inflight staff service."
Cons: "Food needs a bit more innovation."

Pros: "departure on time, seat comfort, service okay at time when I expect to have it."

Pros: "Excellent. All the staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I forgot to ask them to put to add my quantas points for the flight home and an worries I can’t noe but need to try and do that tomorrow. There was no where to add them when I booked the flights."

Pros: "Amenities - ear plugs and basic things are good. Dint see this in other flights till now in economy. Good movies collection."
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"

Cons: "Poor staff"

Cons: "Did not like the fact that I was not able to upgrade"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Hard to fault Emirates business class flights, flight was comfortable and smooth and crew attentive"
Cons: "Would love Emirates to fly the A380 from Glasgow but know its not possible with our small runway, maybe worth investing in though as always a busy flight both segments"

Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."

Pros: "Access to airport through metro is very nice."
Cons: "Prayer area is very small in the airport. Most of the time it's very crowded."

Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "Some people requesting me to exchange seats. They were young boys. This is the second time in Emirates."

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: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."

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

Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."

Pros: "The service was excellent and the crew tried to keep everyone comfortable. Food was good and great selection when it comes to entertainment."

Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Crew was incredible, food was incredible."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."

Pros: "The in-flight service of Emirates Airlines is superb and Flight Attendants as helpful, courteous and diligent in their duties. I highly admire their professionalism and client service."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Was able to change my special meal for a regular meal in business class. Thanks for the great service. I do feel the service on the 9hr dxb to cpt flight was above that of the 4hr dxb to blr flight."

Pros: "Over all all was great"

Cons: "Other than the delay in boarding, which resulted in a bit of chaos, everything went very well."

Pros: "Great plane (new) Good food Boarding was very very smooth"
Cons: "The crew was OK, some of them where a little "grumpy" There was no WiFi on the plane (not even paid, although I asked again and again). The excuse was that the plane was new and they did not have the time to install WiFi..... the bad thing is that I was counting on the paid version to keep up with work (as I did on the other flight) but was unable and there was not prior notification on that."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing​"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."

Pros: "Wifi was working ok"

Pros: "Very good we appreciate good service and good food"

Pros: "One can always be sure that emirates will be a great host almost every time. I enjoyed the service and the variety of food choices available. The staff was responsive and sensitive to individual needs. Enjoyed the entertainment and choice."

Pros: "The selection of tv shows and movies was excellent. Very diverse. The crew were also very responsive to anything we asked (water, questions, etc...) They gave me good advice regarding my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plane was an older model, so the touch screen was a bit unresponsive. Our tvs were shut off for the first two hours because of a glitch."

Pros: "Comfortable seats on the 777 compared to the 380. The food was great and the crew was world class."
Cons: "The airport did not announce that our flight was boarding. Two bus loads of people were rushed onto the busses because of the confusion. The entertainment display was worn out in my headrest."

Pros: "Good choice of international movies in entertainment"
Cons: "Quality of meals can be improved"

Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Pros: "The flight was great. The seats were spacious and comfortable."

Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."

Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"

Cons: "The delays"

Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."

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

Cons: "Leg room was poor. No entertainment"

Cons: "Best flight ever all time"

Cons: "The food was poor quality."

Pros: "Great experience - love travelling Qantas on International flights"

Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"

Pros: "enjoyed the newer planes"
Cons: "less use of single use plastics. air canada could become a pioneer and use compostavle plastics or better yet the new paper box water bottles!"

Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"

Cons: "Couldn't check in on mobile"

Pros: "Food and comfort of the seat"
Cons: "The USB charger, the whole entertainment, anything on the remote including light control and bell, stopped working! I wasn't given enough attention, i had to chase the crew a few times, it was a 14 hour flight with nothing working, miserable experience. I was offered a window seat, which i hate, without considering to give me an upgrade. I was given 5,000 Qantas points, i don't know if they can be moved to my AVIOS."

Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly staff"
Cons: "Could not eat the in flight breakfast as both contained wheat (I’m coeliac)"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand. It helped that we were on an A380 and because of the lack of the plane being filled both my travel companion and I had 3 seats to ourselves to stretch out. In economy, without that, nothing would have made the trip bearable. That said, the food was good, the entertainment options good, and the after hours water/liquid/snack options were quite good."

Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."

Pros: "All of the staff are friendly and helpful and is a good flight."
Cons: "It was raining and I don't like to fly in the rain especially landing."

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."

Cons: "My headphone didn't work properly. The left ea side didn't have any sounds and the right side sometimes scrambles."

Cons: "Screaming crying babies"

Pros: "Plane crew all ok"
Cons: "The staff at the check in desk was really really rude and mean. I went there because I was desparate due to my flight delay. I kept asking things because I was confused but she treated me so awful. SHE EVEN SAID “NO MORE QUESTION” and threw me away. Really Disrespectful."

Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"

Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."

Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"

Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"

Cons: "You cannot choose and secure your seat. I was not given the seats I was assigned at the time of booking. The food on quantas is also bad. Moreover, the flight attendants left the food in front of us for nearly An hour after service. I ultimately, in order to use the bathroom, had to remove my own tray."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, crew accommodating, and amenities were great. I thought the flight would seem like forever but it didn't."
