Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entertainment system really good - great choice and great screen sizel"
Cons: "Lack of choice on main meal"
Pros: "The food was good for economy"
Cons: "My seat was about 70% of the size of a normal one. It gave me back pain and shoulder pain as the wall encroaches into the seat space. Do not under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES take the window emergency exit seats. They charge you extra but don’t warn you that they are tiny. I am of relatively normal (althletic) build not overweight or unusually tall etc. They initially told me there were no other free seats so I ended up sat on the floor. Turns out there were free seats. They lied."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "Great as expected"
Cons: "Crew behavior was not up to the standard, need yo work on it"
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"

Pros: "Everything is perfect"
Pros: "Boarding logistics and flight timing were good. Being on time was a big plus. Personnel demeanour was good."
Cons: "Food (lunch/dinner) served was stale. I, as a vegetarian, had hoped that at least the fruit served would be good, but to the contrary. The touch-screen (Entertainment) didn't work well. This is true of both onward and return journey."
Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."
Pros: "It's was my favorite traveling"
Pros: "Boarding at Hyderabad was a breeze.. staff is very cooperative and attentive."
Pros: "Assistance at Bangkok was excellent with no problems wheelchair all the way from flight to taxi. The assistance staff were employed by the airport and not Emerates which seemed to make a difference."
Cons: "On the whole everything was acceptable."
Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."
Pros: "Streamlined flight compared to Boston to Dubai flight. Still very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Seats not as comfortable as possible in coach"
Pros: "Everything was pretty smooth and no real issues. Online check-in was great and let us drop our bags off without waiting in a huge line."
Cons: "Mosquitos in the airport. Probably the most we saw/got bit by in Myanmar was in the airport in Yangon."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Crew was calm and professional."
Cons: "Food was ok, but I've had a lot better on Emirates. Low carb options would make it amazing."
Pros: "My only regret was waiting this long to try Emirates from Milan to JFK They are superior in every way possible. Service food entertainment seat comfort and room And they are price competitive No wonder American Airlines has given up on Europe and become an airline for Miami and South American they are not even in the game. Never ever ever would I fly on AA even if the ticket was 20 bucks Fly emeriates they are the best"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable"
Cons: "They did not have enough Veg food even though I had requested it."
Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
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 requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Cons: "No reason to complain."
Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Compare Air Portugal who flew this part to Emirates is like comparing chalk and cheese. Air Portugal need to up their game."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor boarding. TAP should reduce the recline of the seats to give more comfort for those behind. More and more airlines are reducing the recline to save annoyance to others."
Pros: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"
Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "The complimentary food coupons don't clearly mention what is covered and not and it is a hassle to figure out with airport vendors on what the meal means when there are a lot of options. If the voucher also has a dollar value it will make it easier to know. The Indian restaurants at Gates C should be taken off this list. They were rude and generally left a bad taste in the mouth."
Pros: "Almost like normal seats, almost like normal flights. Ontime, helpful, professional, & courteous crew."
Cons: "They don't recline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were top notch."
Cons: "It was a very nice flight."
Pros: "No delays. No problems"
Cons: "There should be more free food."
Pros: "The crew was polite and extreemly attentive"
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour"
Cons: "Just wish a long flight provided some small amount of food and entertainment. Note, when boarding and the rear baggage racks are full, they should have those who haven't boarded wait outside while the people from the back come to the front with their luggage...or have those in the back wait to come to the front...it is too crowded and I got hurt."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly and helpful crew. Prompt baggage reclaim at Heathrow."
Cons: "Bland food, with no beef option in Business. And what happened to the ice cream sundaes? They've been thrown over for salted caramel gelato. Not nearly as good. The old three-class 767s are TERRIBLE for comfort in Business Class."
Pros: "My phone worked well for the movie"
Cons: "My husbands phone did not work for the movies"
Cons: "Southwest has much better experience."
Pros: "Comfortable temperature. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Been on lots of planes super rough takeoff turbulence was awful landing was not good"
Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"
Pros: "The crew at the desk in sfo and Dallas were great"
Cons: "Waited on tarmac for an hour in hot plane medieval conditions . Crew blamed pilots pilots, pilots said it was conflict of scheduling?! How does this even happen?"
Pros: "Not much. We did arrive intact. Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Heh, it's 2017 and the halcyon days of travel are long gone . . . unless you're willing to shell out money . . . and more money. . . and more money. Flying is a demeaning experience where the airlines nickel and dime you for everything. Seats in economy are miniscule, your neighbors are in your laps, the food is objectionable and costly, entertainment non-existent or costly. Customers are cash cows who can be sucked dry for every amenity."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to airplane maintenance"
Pros: "I like everything!!everyone was so nice that it makes you feel so welcome and that you're like in home!!!"
Pros: "Very annoyed to pay for luggsge and that I keep the weight so strict if a bit over! Will not fly u again As it's not worth it - sorry - greed is rife!"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Very informative about the flight."
Cons: "For entertainment you have to pay other airline like Jet blue and Delta doesn't. Food a little snack for a baby. I ask for water three times only water the flight attended always forget. It wasn't good flight."
Pros: "The attendants were absolutely wonderful and made our flight tolerable. Thank you again to the crew for working so hard and making our flight so much easier."
Cons: "Lack of communication - after we had checked in at the airport (under 2 hours before our international flight time) we were notified that our flight was delayed by an hour and 45 minutes. After waiting about 4 hours everyone started lining up in their respective rows and that's when the terminal United employees decided to inform us all that all passengers need to get in line at the desk first in order to get their passports inspected and get an approval stamp before lining up. Could have easily been done in the hour and 45 minutes of delay time we had. It's now 11:30 am, 2 hours past the original flight time and 15 minutes past the original delayed time, and we were all still in our respective lines to board the plane. The delay was due to the catering cart that had not yet arrived. So we were all waiting for about 30 minutes in line just to board the plane. During this time United decided to promote their Entertainment onboard and alcohol available for purchase once we are airborn. Finally when we were on board and about to be airborn is when the first apology was heard from the crew. This could have been managed much more effectively and professionally."
Pros: "The food was and entertainment was good. They had direct tv in every seat and I was able to watch a good show."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a few hours and they ran out of drinks."
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "Will probably not a se UA for another flight"
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Comfortable and enjoyable flight, efficient crew without delays."
Cons: "Poor food - even going for the safe pasta option. Very disappointing & not enjoyable."
Cons: "we had to pay to watch any channel."
Pros: "Once in the air the flight was great."
Cons: "1/2 hr before boarding should have occurred we were notified of a delay- 1/2 hr. I knew I was going to miss my connection and asked, and told if I did they would put me on the next one out an hr later, but could not nor would not address it until necessary. When we arrived, they informed me of the gate to go to... which we ran to... and when we got to there were told the plane left 15 minutes ago."
Pros: "No hassles. perfect flight for a great vacation."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Pros: "The flight was late and I missed My connection flight because of it. Unbelievable and unreliable flight and a horrible start for a vacation. SO sorry I took United!!"
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment option through the United app. Nice staff and waffle cookies were way better than peanuts."
Pros: "Food was ok reclining seats worked not much else."
Cons: "The reclining seats only work if you are shorter than 187cm I'm taller and so I had to bend my knees as there is nowhere else for your legs to go! The Chardonnay was warm - when served with tasty smoked salmon turned me off. The pillow was a $2 one lumpy and next to useless it's too big for the room you have. My entertainment system was reset three times and it still didn't work properly - no sound and no ability to watch movies that were not child rated. Stewards have to learn to be quiet as some of us are trying to sleep on a 15 hour flight and aren't interested in their laughs and jokes as we are travelling business first because we have to go to work when we get there!!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I am writing this letter to express my concerns and frustrations toward your stewardess on flight 1050, they were aggressive and condescending. A customer ask if they were serving drinks the male stewardess waved his hand and seemed quite annoyed and stated " mam what do you want to drink". In addition he would walk down the aisle and give you three wafer cookies , I'm wondering why three???? That's because he wanted me to pass them down as if I was in an assembly line rather than handing each customer a cookie. He walked through the aisle with water and never asked if anyone if they would like water. It was almost like he was annoyed at everyone in sight . I have never experienced such behavior on flight. I flew Unites AIrlines plenty of times and NEVER experienced this. The other customers in my row expressed their frustration with the unkindness of treatment during the flight. I understand it's a very hectic weekend with the holiday but there was absolutely no reason to experience such behavior. My party will not be looking forward to using united again!"
Pros: "Delta airline"
Cons: "floght delay ; at least 3 times for me!"
Cons: "The visitor documents could have been passed out sooner. We didn't babe much time before landing to complete and instructions were not very clear."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We accidentally left our Camera on the plane and didn't realize it until we got to our hotel. They had found it and returned it directly to our hotel. They saved our honeymoon."
Cons: "We had checked in early and selected seats together because this trip was our honeymoon. We or an alert saying our plane was changed as well as our seats and we were seated on OPPOSITE SIDES of the plane. We were then charged over $200 in order to sit next to each other. I even called United directly and they said there was nothing they could do. That's pretty inexcusable and ridiculous. If the customer service representatives are not Empowered enough to rectify such an egregious inconvenience, then why do they exist?"
Pros: "On time Skilled pilots Smooth landing Accommodating staff Pleasant"
Pros: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board."
Cons: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board. Have taken this route at least 6 other times with other airlines. Will never flight United again."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"
Cons: "Overall becoming frustrated with paying airline inflated seat prices not reflecting current fuel prices, smaller space, fees for every little extra, no food even for international flight, not enough overhead storage even for one per seat, switching of payed for Isle seat to middle at last minute, not a clean flight_ trash in seat pocket when I boarded and overall feeling of just being a revenue stream and not a person."
Pros: "The interior of the plane was updated and modern."
Cons: "We had a 6+ hour flight and nothing worked. No tv, no wifi, and no service."
Pros: "I love how amazing the crew & especially the pilot handled An unexpected emergency stop during the take off. A+++ I felt comfortable and not stressed with what was being done to work things out. A huge thanks to them !!!!!"
Cons: "How shitty some of the passengers were to the crew and what was happening ."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Can't beat a direct flight from Houston to sunny Mexico!"
Cons: "They over booked the flight. And it was jumping all the time. The worst flight ever!!"
Pros: "Price of tckt"
Cons: "Departing 30min late and arriving 45min late to final destination"
