Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Pros: "Great flight and service"
Pros: "The whole flight experience was awesome. Top staff, plane, etc. airline food is not always very good, but Emirate has some of the best. I never feel like I am second rate. Treated as good as business on USA domestic. Long layover includes meal voucher. USA domestic would never do that. It is amazing that this airline can provide top service at the same cost as USA airlines and not whine about losing money."
Cons: "Not Emirates fault, but Dubai airport is not the best for a long layover. You are forced to use the hotel if you want to rest, or the floor."
Pros: "Emirates was the referrer only. The flight was a Qantas flight hence same as any other Qantas flight. The fish dinner choice was over cooked."
Cons: "I like the luggage allowance-- more realistic than other airlines. The attendants were attentive but perhaps a little overdone on the fake smiles except for the main attendant who had the stressed/more straight-faced look for some strange reason. i probably should have been more tuned into the mechanical visual entertainment on board instead. Got to watch two movies which was great!"
Cons: "The delays, the switching of airlines with no prior notification. The flight was originally scheduled for 4:05 pm with Emirates, yet was changes to quantas and left much later"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "There was nothing to complain about."
Cons: "The attitude of the crew, not friendly, the lady next to me had to ask 3 times to get her glass of water Very average, I was dissapointed as Emirates is the best company I flew with and Qantas does not have the same quality and service standards"
Pros: "I can't even choose what did I like the most about this flight, I was in economy but felt like I was traveling in business... The crew was excellent, the flight was quiet and calm, great food,..... And so on."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the entertainment system was top of the line with huge screens. Staff was lovely."
Pros: "Everything we want to fly business class next time"
