Airline reviews

Pros: "La atencion , la abilidad y sobre todo su cortesia.."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Seats comfortable"

Pros: "Everything, one of my favourite airlines"

Pros: "Just a bad airline all together. They try to rip you off during transit by saying your luggage is over the weight limit and that you must pay for each additional kilograms."

Pros: "Nice service and excellent staff will recommend Emirates airline to everybody"

Pros: "The person behind me didn’t have enough space so I could recline back and get comfortable"
Cons: "More spacial seats"

Cons: "No entertainment but it’s probably because it was a short trip"

Cons: "In"

Cons: "Not getting delayed for 2 hours and then missing flight and waiting 5 more hours to rebook. Disaster."

Cons: "It took a long time to get a beverage and food"

Pros: "We love this airline!"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The boarding process needs improvement. The crew should be more friendly. And, there needs to be more movies and TV shows."

Pros: "coach in many airlines don't offer any amenity kit emirates still provides the basics socks, ear plugs, tooth brush etc. Food and drinks are good with choices"
Cons: "the connectivity offered by emirates and fly Dubai is not a good idea. its loss for customer to pay emirates fare and fly with Flydubai"

Pros: "This is the most messed up money making strategy I have seen at airlines."

Cons: "It was over booked No option to upgrade even though I had more than enough air miles"

Pros: "The staff at the check in counter at JFK was very friendly and accommodating, much like the crew on the flight. Boarding was orderly and efficiently executed, although some announcement about the 30-minute boarding delay would have been appreciated. Onboard the seating was quite comfortable compared with other airlines I have travelled on and the crew was exceptional in their service - really customer-focused. The meals were tasty with unlimited snacks and complimentary drinks. Generally, I would highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "The TV and remote controls could be updated. Touch screen was largely slow to respond and the whole system could be more intuitive."

Pros: "The stewardess were friendly enough. When the cabin got chilly I received another blanket. The complimentary beverages was nice. No chips though. The individual tv screen was a plus."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable. I couldn’t recline it back all the way to sleep. I was very dry and did not realize that there was water in the galley that I could have helped myself to. Not enough leg room for tall people like me without having to purchase it."

Cons: "Flight was initially delayed one hour, then we were asked to line up for boarding but it took another 45 minutes of standing before we were boarded. The flight ended up taking off 2 hours late. We missed our connecting flight, the meal vouchers in Dubai were for vendors that were a) shut down/no longer open and b) of terrible food quality (McDonalds!? AWFUL!)"

Pros: "Food and beverage choices were excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was delayed a lot and not properly handled. I was in Business class, still there was no information about what would happen when. Onboard, the TV (ICE) and internet were struggling to keep up with user demand. Did not load or connect sometimes. Different crew members had same standard answer - try later. While sleeping in Business class, I was woken up twice by a rude crew member (Velma Ndubi). She even refused to tell me her name because she did not want me to complain. Her attitude ruined the flight for me."

Pros: "I always prefer this airline to so many others. It’s definitely more organized, good selection of movies, more leg room for a long flight which is great. The food was mediocre"
Cons: "Movies Leg room Breakfast"

Pros: "staff is nice"
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as other airlines. Baggage lost. Took 30 hours for us to receive. Flight to jfk seems to be cancelled due to weather, but it is very unclear due to no communication from Emirates."

Pros: "No issues with flight times or boarding, flight crew were very nice and accomodating, plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "My pre-selected meal choice was not always followed through with. I requested a vegan meal from their choices and, as is often the case, was provided with meals that included dairy products, which I can not eat."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Yuck."

Pros: "Wonderful service. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "My TV wasn't working."

Pros: "I liked the cleanliness of the plane, the crew was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "I wished they served more water more frequently. The conversation the flight attendants engaged in was distracting and was not conducive for the passengers who were trying to sleep"

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

Cons: "The planes were older and for both flight my seats had problems reclining."

Cons: "Hindu Meal was a repeat of the DEL DXB and DXB JFK sectors."

Cons: "Emirates flight took me and my mom to Milan(Italy) on issued Dubai Boarding pass."

Pros: "Entertainment is good."
Cons: "29 passengers were arriving in JFK from MSP, a flight that was delayed due to ground staff issues at JFK (which means that Emirates' partner airline had some issues?). Plane was delayed but we landed just in time to make the connection or so we thought. After running through the terminal, we saw our plane attached to the gate for 53 minutes(I have pictures to show) but Emirates gate staff said the flight is now closed, and didn't let us board the flight. They didn't help us rebook our next flight, or pay for hotel or transportation. And some of us couldn't fly for 2 days because they were overbooked on their future flights. And that's what really happened - Emirates was overbooked for our flight, and conveniently used the excuse that they didn't know our flight had landed in JFK (seriously), and their ground staff was totally non challent about it. They asked us to call the partner airline to rebook, who instead asked us to call Emirates. 4-6 hours of calling for most of us in the middle of the night. Emirates has social media presence on Twitter & Facebook but it's like chatting with a wall. Its 100% useless and waste of time, and I have asked them where I can send my complaint but they won't respond."

Pros: "Food is good, inflight entertainment is good, and even though the flight is long, Emirates does a good job inflight."
Cons: "29 passengers were arriving in JFK from MSP, a flight that was delayed due to ground staff issues at JFK (which means that Emirates' partner airline had some issues?).

Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."

Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."

Cons: "Most horrible experience... customer service is horrible ... didn't even take the flight . They delayed the flight and they think it is ok to put us on any flight they want . I booked the flight because i was particular on the shortest duration of the flight they rebooked me on a flight that would have taken me to my destination after 36 hrs and the way the crew spoke was so horrible. It was as if they did me a favor by putting me on another flight."

Cons: "One baggage misssing, flight delay"

Pros: "Emirates is my new favorite airline. Food was excellent, flight attendants were all friendly and professional, the seats were spacious, and there was a great selection of movies."

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: "The roomy seat and extra leg room are very nice. Very friendly crew, they made travelling with children a lot easier. Like them."
Cons: "The food is not as good as expected I actually did not eat the food, it was just not good."

Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"

Pros: "Onboard crew- Bliss was the name of the crew member on board. Efficient and a joyful personality to engage. He connected , talked and responded warmly and efficiently."
Cons: "Checking in at the airport- the staff person who I dealt with was combative and inflexible. I had to ask the manager to mediate till the matter was resolved. As frequent travelers, I am aware rules change and am willing to comply. Being told my hand baggage had to be checked in and I cannot redistribute the weight or put things into my checking bags that were yet to be tagged was unreasonable. Started my trip on a negative note which was avoidable. I have found the training crew get and the ground staff get are disparate. As efficient as the onboard crew are, the ground staff in DXB and now NYC do not match up."

Pros: "Food Comfort"
Cons: "Flight was 30m late "probably not their fault" so I haven't received my luggages until the next day. I suggest keeping the layover hours a little longer than 1:30m"

Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."

Pros: "Food was better than Iberia or Delta. Staff greeting friendly."
Cons: "Asked for wine - never came back. No reply. Nothing. Asked for water an hour later - never got water. Asked later in flight, got nasty reply: "Not my job to satisfy coach customers.""

Pros: "The flight crew is genuinely caring"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "Firstly, the attitude of the staff was beyond comprehension. From the get go, they all looked as if they were working at gunpoint. Secondly, the food was inedible. Over salty, bland, and above all, they ran out of food. On an aircraft the size of an A380, one would like to assume that there will be enough food for people who are stuck and afraid of asking for anything from the moody staff. I have been travelling with Emirates for years now and insisted on flying it this time around upon much disapproval from my peers and family. My experience proved them right. I am still in complete shock and dismay. On a 12+ hour journey if I have to witness the staff rolling their eyes and where the passengers have to think twice before asking to be served, I think that's not right. Shame on you Emirates."

Pros: "The comfort of the Airbus A380. Friendliness of staff, good food and wine. Great entertainment programs. I am a concert pianist, and I can not believe you offer so many channels of Classical Music on board! Plus all the movies.... Exceptional and good value. I am hooked!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flying with Emirates was a fantastic experience. Top service, variety of entertainment, spacious seats, delicious food, and amazing helping team."

Pros: "Unlike most reviewers, I never have a good experience with Emirates.However, Crew (this time) was very accommodating and did their best to make this a comfortable trip."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."

Cons: "I requested (at least 2 months ago) for a cake for my daughters Birthday which was on July 5th. I made the request over phone calling customer service in NY. Unfortunately it was not honored. When I called 2 days before the flight departure just to verify, I was told by the telephone Representative that the request was cancelled by Emirates as it was not entered properly ( ? ). And she can not do anything about that. Though the request was entered by Emirates Employee and Emirates just cancelled the request and did not bother to notify me. My daughter was so upset and was crying , and nothing I could do to make her happy. I will never fly Emirates again."
