Cons: "Flight had some delay. One person on-ground very rude and totally out of line in the way to treat customers. Under no circumstance any airline employee should lecture a passenger about time schedules and such. I had read the rules online and was aware of the timings required if checking in online. I was surprised being accustomed to good service from this airline."
Pros: "Crew is friendly and good service"
Cons: "Emirates did not honer the cost of the Hotel night in Dubai. Neither Kayak, nor Emirates advised us to book the hotel within 24 hours of flight time. We called Kayak, they have Zero customer service. We called Emirates, they blamed it on Kayak. They said that they should have advise us to book the Hotel at least 24 hours before departure. We ended up paying for our Hotel and meals and it should have been coveted by the Airline. Randa"

Pros: "Mostly everything"
