Pros: "Flight had to be cancelled because kayak/Korean air allowed us to purchase these tickets aware with the expiration date of Lauren Butz’s passport this would be an issue. Disgusting business practice."
Cons: "See above. Kayak or Korean air should refund us the cost and some for the stress incurred on our honeymoon, the extra night stay in San Francisco and all the challenges incurred with little to no help from Korean Air on finding an APPROPRIATE resolution (they’re best offer was for us to buy two tickets for the same flight pattern 1 day later for an additional $1,500. THey wanted us to pay them more to get us there? After their shady business practices of willingly stealing money for our initial flight purchase for our honeymoon? Atrocious.)"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "they are so nice and helpful"
Pros: "Food and comfort"
Cons: "Not so much to watch"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "not comfortable with the seats"
Cons: "re you trying to register for?  ~ Garrett"
Pros: "Loved it!"
Pros: "I really like the plane. It was my first time on an A380 and despite its size and volume of passengers, everything went well. Staff was excellent and helpful and the entertainment selections really good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "This was my first experience. It was great. Kindly staff. Service also good. I think it is good."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and professional."
Pros: "The meals were really good for plane food, the flight attendants came around often offering water or juice, and really competitive price for tickets."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were very attentive. Food and beverages were appreciated. Hot cloths to refresh ourselves were also appreciated. Needless to say, the skill of the personnel in the cockpit is also acknowledged. The blankets, pillow, and water were also a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable, but I wish they had more cushioning for this long flight."
Pros: "Compared to U.S. carriers, except for Hawaiian Air, Korean Air has been very reliable and quite enjoyable over the years. Meals are quite good for contracted airline food, and attendants are typically very friendly."
Cons: "Seats on any airline are always a bit tight unless you pay for an upgrade. The music variety could have featured a few more American artists."
Pros: "Fast I like it this way.."
Cons: "Time keep changing is what I don't like."
Pros: "Clean rest rooms Friendly attendants comfortable leg room"
Cons: "Very limited entertainment options for such a long flight, IAD to Seoul"
Pros: "Everything up until I got to Hawaii and switched to them."
Cons: "The code share airline"
Pros: "It was better than expected. A wide selection of in flight entertainment to help pass time. I'd give it a 5 if I were in first class."
Pros: "It may be my imagination, but I feel like the seats on this Korean Air Flight lean back more and have more leg room that flights I've been on in the past. Also the crew was so kind, even when dealing with tired, grumpy passengers."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, flight attendants were courteous, toilet was always clean."
Pros: "Window seats in business class have direct isle access without having to disturb your neighbor."
Pros: "Service much better than any other carrier I have flown with.."
Cons: "Special meal options really bad. All vegetarian meal preferences including lacto-ovo-vegetarian are treated same as vegan, which is dumb."
Pros: "They listen to your request kindly."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Timeliness Appearance of crew. More leg room. Variety of entertainment"
Cons: "It appears the flight attendants catered more for Koreans than others. On several occasions they would ask Korean passengers if they wanted coffee, tea or wine. They looked at me and deliberately ignored me. This happened on Flight from Houston to Manila. From Hong Kong to Seoul and especially from Seoul to Houston. I had to ask thrice for a head phone before I got one. I was wide awake."
Pros: "I requested a special meal which was accommodated and quite tasty. The flight attendants were very nice and always brought water and juice around the aisles. The warm towel was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Such a full plane with little space. Made the long flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "Bathriom cleanliness and the good work of the stewardesses"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Let's start with the overrated leg space and seating comfort. It was cramped as with any other regular airline. Seats in the economy section are not comfortable and have no back support. These seats should have better cushions and back support. Our flight attendant had a bad attitude after we asked for wine and didn't offered us any beverages for at least two occasions. No warm towel either. She just skipped us like we were not there. The meals are just ok. Nothing remarkable. Then we stand in line for almost two hours after a 14.5 hours flight to get through immigration. The overall experience was not good at all and for that price the comfort and service should be much better."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond."

There was difficulty with my connecting flight due to inconsistent COVID regulations. I was almost not allowed on, despite fulfilling all my requirements for my destination country. I was over-billed by Alaska Airlines for my luggage as well.

Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat was very good, food excellent."
Cons: "Its sad to see that only the female flight attendants look after the restrooms, no male attendants were seen doing it on both flights. Disappointing in this day and age this still exists."
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."
Pros: "The cabin crew was pretty good. This was the only saving grace in otherwise very poor experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and they changed the gate from one end of the terminal (A15) to the other (C1). The waiting area was cramped. This being the home of Singapore Airlines, the way managed this entire thing was pathetic. Boarding announcements were also confusing."
Cons: "Very cramped. Worst leg of the journey"
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."
Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "Food was pretty good. Loved the Weiss ice cream bars"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat ever. Wouldn't recline. TVs small and poor quality. Sound patchy. Not a pleasant flight. Must have been an old plane."
Pros: "Singapore Airlines delivers as always. Friendly crew and clean and well maintained aircraft."
Pros: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."
Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."
Cons: "It felt a tad bit hot in the plane. No personal vents to adjust to one's own desire."
Cons: "Older plane not so comfortable for a long flight. Movies, not much choice and far away from seat."
Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"
Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Service by the crew was great"
Cons: "Food in the economy class was not so great Options provided were not tasty. Each meal tasted same. No kid option available. Tastier options available on other major international flights."
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
Pros: "The service from the ground crew and cabin crew are very professional. Friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Pros: "Friendly, smiling staff, ever happy to help, nice food"
Cons: "Seats on the A380 upper deck economy are too uncomfortable, couldn't relax at all during the 5h red-eye to Singapore"
Pros: "I loved the professionalism of the crew, and how they treat the passengers with such care. I prefer Singapore airlines over any other. Seats are very comfortable. This craft had touch screen monitors that worked well. I was able to use my own ear buds by pulling the jack out part way."
Cons: "I really only have one gripe. I wish there were more movie choices for adults that did not have foul language and immoral scenes."
Pros: "Overall experience and wonderful crew"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."
Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"
Pros: "New plane- Airbus A350 with latest in seats, entertainment system, and cabin fittings. Decent wine. Highly courteous, attractive and attentive crew."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."
Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."
Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "New aircraft Airbus 350-900 - has lot of leg space even in economy class. Food was just OK, nothing special and far from what SQ used to serve to the passengers. I was very disappointed finding out that travel pack consists only toothbrush and tootpaste with socks included. No more slippers, eyes cover and no more other necessities for intercontinental flights ! What a shame for SQ to save the money on such important things for passengers. Staff was over indulging, someone would say - fake kindness shown ..."
Cons: "I didn't like the crew... They have to learn from Air Serbia staff and Turkish Airlines what is genuine kindness and politeness. And the most expensive aircompany should not be stingy and provide to passengers on intercontinental flights just toothbrush and socks in traveler pack !!! What a shame for SQ !"
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."
Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."
Pros: "Friendly and approachable cabin crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not good. No clear announcement. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Entertainment system doesn't have a touch screen like other airlines. They give you ear but buds instead of head phones. Alright they gave us headphones for our young son you had to put the foam covers on yourself and they kept coming off. Not a very good selection of movies. Good is bland and not very good options."
Pros: "Excellent service but old plane"
Cons: "Entertainment was that good"
Pros: "The crew was very hospitable and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The corn chips!"
Pros: "Very helpful in getting on board luggage stowed, attractive interior"
Cons: "Scheduling was poor (turned up lighting far early than needed) and made too many and too loud of general announcements through the night for an overnight flight."
Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."
Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Pros: "Premium Economy had plenty of legroom. Food service was comparable to business class."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent and so was the food."
Pros: "Crew very friendly, nice airplane, clean"
Cons: "more room in economu"
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "Suuuppppeerrrr delayed and I didn’t feel that an empty middle seat to be considered business class on my2nd leg from London to Munich."
Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."
Pros: "I never doubt Air NZ , overall Ok ."
Cons: "this flight bit noisy, and felt dirty toilet ..anyway,,, I Like Air NZ .Hope good next time"
Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."
Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"
Pros: "Although I'd like to see the seats upgraded to ones adjustable to lie flat seats without getting up and several steps, the crew on the Air New Zealand flights make the difference. What a PLEASANT experience. Great passenger service boarding to landing."
Cons: "Once made, the lie flat seats are extremely comfortable. However, it's a bit of a hassle to get the bed made. Also the seats don't offer as much privacy as seats on other carriers (AA, UA, LH etc). If they changed the seats, the airline can compete with any other, as the crews are superb."
Pros: "Comfy seats, the flight was basically empty so I got my own row. Very nice flight attendants. Pilot kept us updated on timing and storm movement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, seat hadn’t been swept for garbage from the previous flight (wrappers and used tissues in the seat pocket)."
Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"
Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."
Pros: "Boarding best I've ever done"
Cons: "Food was airplane food why can't they do better"
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Air New Zealand plane was newer and crew was helpful and gracious. Connection to Glasgow was a disaster mostly caused by our airline changing to British Airways to Glasgow. Because our LAX yo LHR flight arrived a bit late, we missed our flight to GLA and had to wait nine hours to get seats on another flight from LHR to GLA. No accomodations were made for us. We had to manage nine hours in LHR with a 4 year-old -- we had no other choice."
Cons: "Will never again fly Air New Zealand from LAX to GLA -- an annual route for us as we have family in Scotland."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "great flight attendants who really seem like they want to be flying. The economy seats are better than most other airlines. I will always check to see if Air NZ flys to the destination I'm going. They are classy."
Pros: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort was all very good."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my bag and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The crew was friendly it was a smooth flight the food was good and I enjoyed the snacks also."
Cons: "There was't anything I didn't like I thought it was all good"
Pros: "General ambience on board."
Cons: "Change of Gate between baggage check time and boarding. Had to work that out for ones self."
Pros: "Always the kiwi service"

Lost my luggage.

Pros: "The crew was really good, even the food was nice"
Cons: "I think the economy class seating could be better & even the ticket prices could be reduced a bit"
Cons: "Boarded the plane via a very long bus ride to a remote parking bay. Once on board we’re treated to one of Emirates newest Boeing 777’s ."
Pros: "Good check-in experience."
Cons: "Entertainment Systems are old, low-resolution and difficult to view & operate compared to, say, A380 aircraft. Some did not work. Seats were cramped. One recliner was broken. Cabin crew smiled less. African legs should not have lower quality of equipment and service than other legs."
Cons: "It took a long time to get a beverage and food"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "All reasonabley good."
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "Everything about the flight - barring one thing - was brilliant. The new overhauled interior with the padded leather seats and a mini bar is an exquisite touch. The build quality of the interior such as the spotlight, switches, buttons all have a classy touch with a very classy interior cabin lighting. It felt like how a business class should be: excellent. And, as usual, the staff remained professional, polite, friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "There was a delay before the take off. I had one booking with four trips with Emirates, three delayed which was a disappointment from a major credible airliner."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
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."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Every thing was ok.but not excellent"
Cons: "Specially for getting down from the plane we had to use stairs that is not good specially for senior citizens."
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."
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Cons: "Flights are always good but back office staff is always careless not to bother any complaints or never solved any complaints they do not care of customer bcoz they have business thier is no other airline right now but in future may be they loose customer like me"
Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."
Pros: "Timings were perfect for flight landing and departure. Cleanliness was there."
Cons: "Service was very poor. Asked for warm water 3-4 times - no response.. Asked for green tea - no response."
Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."
Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."
Cons: "Wish that the airline would have told me in advance that I need an Australia transit visa before I went to the airport."
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."

Tried to contact customer service for several times but failed to contact. Strong customer service is required.

Disorganized and lacking courtesy in Nairobi JKIA. Business travelers counter not displayed. We paid about $5000 for return tickets because they rudely locked us out saying “you are late.” They had sent us for a new 24 hour COVID test having rejected the 72 hour we had. We did not understand their logic because passengers were still in line. We were in line from 4pm, the flight was after midnight. At PHL, being American citizens, we were not required to present a 24 hour C test! We feel robbed!

Pros: "Yes loved it"
Pros: "Very comfortable and enjoyable flight"
Pros: "The crew was very good. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Cons: "My baggage got missing"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The airplane trip was ok"
Cons: "I had 14h of layover in Doha and I did not have a hotel to sleep that night."
Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The internet service was not working!"
Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"
Pros: "Crew was good! Food was good! Boarding was on time !"
Cons: "Economy comfort could be better."
Pros: "Much better than average meals"
Cons: "more cell phone charging stations at the airport"
Pros: "The service was perfect the aircraft was clean and tidy. The pyjamas were a great added bonus and comfortable."
Cons: "There was nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Pros: "The service was great and was on time"
Cons: "The service and was"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "they need to do family section"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Pros: "The same as the flight from L.A to Doha, did not feel the time passing..."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about..."
Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Flight was on-time, crew was very friendly. The entertainment was very good, the food was o.k."
Cons: "Everything overall was very good, the only issue was that we tended to sit with our dirty trays and empty cups for quite long periods of time."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Food serving took a while. And need improvements."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness including restrooms, excellent food selections comfortable seats including head support and friendly professional attendants."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
