Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"
Cons: "All good"
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."
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The seat was broken and wouldn't recline. Very uncomfortable 8+ hours"
Pros: "Aircraft was fantastic, great cabin crew helpful, toilets bigger than usual, seat space good. Thanks Emirates"
Cons: "I think Emirates should consider serving the cocktails/pre-meal drinks before the meal - after all, Gin and Tonic or Martinis just don't work during after meals. But this is minor gripe, the airline is great."
Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."
Pros: "Great service, good meal and outstanding entertainment channels"
Cons: "No critical comments to be offered"
Pros: "On time, entertainment good crew"
Cons: "Food was bland"
Pros: "Loved every moment!"
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: "Movie selection terrible."
Cons: "I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane."
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!"
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
Pros: "Spacious plane. Comfort in Economy Class wascwonderful. Crew'a attention to the passengers wascexcellent."
Pros: "customer service of crew was good."
Cons: "there were many who were selected for extra screening (code SSS) this process added a great amount of confusion (without any communication) we were screened and put in an isolation area where we were not allowed to leave or use a bathroom. We were there for over one hour. at one point, we were moving into a long tube like structure where we stayed for at least 30 minutes while others were boarding from an different ramp. the communication was non existent and we were made to feel like prisoners. actually, we were prisoners."
Pros: "Booked the wrong flight and had no trouble in switching flights to the correct one. In flight experience was far above average and the comfort level was the best of any flight I have been on."
Pros: "Spacious, great entertainment selection, crew is very attentive"
Cons: "Not all seats can lean back"
Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."
Pros: "Enough leg room, wide seads"
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."
Pros: "This aircraft was top of the line. Nice size seats, wide aisle, clean bathrooms, great staff, and superior food!"
Pros: "good food, empty seats for snoozing and very helpful flight crew."
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: "Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew."
Cons: "As far as a reasonably priced economy flight, I can't think of a think. Of course, I'd always like a bigger seat but even those were better than most."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."
Cons: "Before the flight landed and before an announcement was made to bring seats upright, I was repeatedly poked by a crew member to wake up. This was not necessary since we were not close to landing. Very rude and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Carry on weight retractions and scattered boarding"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth. Amazingly courteous staff. Great attention all during the flight. Great entertainment options with all kinds of information availability."
Cons: "Customs forms into NY were unnecessary. Everything else that I can think of was out of Emirate's control."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Ground process and lounges were not different from Business Ckass"
Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
Pros: "Service was great, choices for each meal were plentiful, flight was smooth..pilot alerted you when slight turbulence would occur"
Cons: "Wish the first class pods weren't only for first class"
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and fast. The entire staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Food and staff service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The seat and the flight were very good."
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: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings."
Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."
Pros: "The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Pros: "A basic US domestic flight"
Cons: "Entertainment, wifi, better food options, more room and comfort. Basically, more like Qantas"
Pros: "Terrible experiences overall and food is very bad."
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Pros: "Same as previous answer!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."
Cons: "Best flight ever all time"
Pros: "Fast boarding and great entertainment."
Cons: "Food was sparse and water hard to come by. The ability of passengers in front to deeply recline their seats made the flight uncomfortable and claustrophobic."
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
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."
Pros: "Free entertainment when it actually worked."
Pros: "Everything was barely adequate. All the flights on this trip was substandard. Planes seemed old and dirty. Really disappointed."
Cons: "Barely made the connection."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
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."
Pros: "The business class attention, and the quietness of an A380"
Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Qantas is a quality airline and provided us with better service than most USA airlines that we typically fly for about the same pricepoint. We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service."
Cons: "All was good, would fly them again should we need to travel their routes again. We flew 2 international flights and 4 domestic (within Australia) flights during our stay in Australia and had great experiences on all the flights."
Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."
Pros: "The flight crew was great, very comfortable plane ride"

Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Cons: "Dash 8 looked tried. Seats need an update"
Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."
Pros: "Really nothing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and people were standing in line for ages before they started to let passengers board. Once boarded, flight was delayed over an hour so we just sat there on the plane. We were sitting in the last row where extremely cold air was just blowing directly at us the entire flight! We asked a few members of the crew including the manager and were told that that's what happens when you're close to the door. It was the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE flight of my life!!! I will never fly Qantas again. They were a complete nightmare and definitely the low point of our wonderful vacation."
Pros: "Got away on time and landed early."
Cons: "Boarding pass scanners broken - so couldn't scan from a phone. And then the boarding pass printer wasn't working properly either. Also these planes are very noisy."
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Pros: "Cleanliness and comfort of plane, professionalism and courtesy of staff. Quiet, dark cabin allowed for restful trip."
Pros: "Entire flight there was no comfort- crew was brash and unfriendly -"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
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: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."
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"
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "Gf food was good"
Cons: "Tight searing"
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Cons: "The check in process for baggage at Sydney."
Pros: "Worst food on flight m service"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Dinner on a 1 hr flight! Unheard of in US in coach."
Cons: "Small seats (but same as our 13hr United flight from SYdney to Sam Francisco). Tolerable on 1hr flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew Loved that they ranged in ages and races I also loved that the crew were helpful and cheery Crew interacted with my daughter well and always stopped to talk or smile at my daughter as they walked past Qantas are truly the best!"
Pros: "Inflight service."
Cons: "Headsets tend to fail. Is good that more than one were provided."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"
