Cons: "-Seat comfort - stingy with morning coffee -terrible departing plane"

Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow and could use new cushions."

Pros: "I would like to see you distribute toothbrush kits in economy class, even if you do not consider 7-8 hour legs as long haul flights"
Cons: "there were no toothbrush kits given out in economy class"

Pros: "Attendants and aircraft comfort was excellent"

Pros: "New york dubai seats were very comfortable. Dubai mumbai were okk. Crew was very pleasing"

Pros: "average, plan is pretty old"
Cons: "TV is terrible. Not a touch screen ."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"
Cons: "On the Boeing 777 series which I flew on, the seats are UNUSUALLY CRAMPED TOGETHER. I have flown for decades internationally: this was absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."

Pros: "Movies entertainment"
Cons: "Food selection available was not good in my opinion - pretty much tailored to Indian appetite and stomachs. Very pour options for juices and alternate foods."

Pros: "I liked everything! Excellent service. Great food, entertainment, and flight. Nothing went wrong. Thank you!"

Pros: "I love rraveling eith with Emirates. The seats are comfortable. They have good entertainment system eith a variety of choices. The attendants are polite and respectful and they do an amazing job. The food is good as well."

Cons: "Horrible service. Flight delayed for almost 4.5 hrs at the DFW. Missed connecting flight and requested them to switch another carrier. Request was denied and put in a red eye flight for next day. Pathetic Airlines"

Pros: "good attitude , friendly service from the crew members"
Cons: "seat spacing was very narrow"

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"
Cons: "The fact the crew lets people stand around in front of you in the Exit row. For what Emirates charges for this added “luxury” it’s ridiculous."

Pros: "Live football final game"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"

Cons: "My one problem, which is not Emirates' problem, is the lady that sat behind me on my way to Dubai in October was unhappy if I reclined my seat at all. I didn't want to cause a problem, so I left it upright - later on, when I walked to the back, I saw her sleeping w/her seat reclined! That really was my only complaint, and like I say, that really has nothing to do w/Emirates."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."

Pros: "Every thing was good"

Pros: "Food, care, excellent people ."

Pros: "Everything! The plane is the size of a bldg lol! Economy seats were really comfortable, lucked up & sat in an exit row. They feed you, give you plenty to drink in economy! Out flight attendants were superb, especially Vidhi! She was a total sweetheart!"
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was a little loose but it was still usuable & viewable although it would slide down a little."

Cons: "My trip was business class from US to Dubai: The attendant woke me up for lunch time to tell me you have only one option as all other options are already taken! Wifi service was not working the whole flight duration because it was not even installed yet on the new aircraft."

Pros: "The service was excellent and the crew tried to keep everyone comfortable. Food was good and great selection when it comes to entertainment."

Pros: "Service onboard the flight was good."
Cons: "Connection in Dubai was terrible. Super long bus ride. Nobody at the terminal to direct you to where the Business Class Lounge is. Had to walk very long distances to get to the Lounge. No staff at the gates in the Business Class Lounge. Flight was delayed but no staff to give information at all."

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: "Wifi kicked me off after not even using my desired amount yet."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"

Pros: "Lots of leg room in a very comfy seat. Great cabin service from friendly and helpful cabin staff. Great entertainment options. Thankyou"

Pros: "Short flight, excellent service."

Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."

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: "The plane was not full and I had three seats to myself, so my very positive review is not totally fair. However, on a relative basis in comparison to other airlines, Emirates is the best on which I have flown."

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth as was finding my luggage after arriving in NYC."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work for about an hour and they had to fix it. It took the crew a while to start troubleshooting it. A few people had to complain before they did anything. The quality of the food on Emirates has greatly decreased recently. Their wifi on flight is terribly slow and they require you to pay $1 for it."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Live entertainment TV. On time schedule."
Cons: "my flight from Dubai to mumbai - missing baggage. That was not a good experience at all."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Their entertainment system, meals and aircraft cleanliness"

Pros: "Crew and service were good. Not a fan of Indian food. Ran out of alternatives. You are leaving India. Might want something other than Indian."
Cons: "Used 2 prong headphones so you couldn't use your own which was uncomfortable."

Pros: "Emirates is truly like no other airline, they cater to your every need and genuinely care about servicing you and your satisfaction. The crew is exceptionally friendly and pleasant. They do not charge you for every single thing like other airlines do. The food is restaurant qualify food and very filling. The in-flight entertainment channels are numerous and will not leave you wondering what to watch. I wish there were more legroom, but overall, an excellent airline that I would definitely fly again."
Cons: "F"

Pros: "Leg room, seat comfort, crew, service"

Pros: "Entertainment was top notch. Wasn't bored"
Cons: "Food could be less processed / more drink service"

Cons: "There was no wheelchair available at Dubai airport."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Free Internet quota gets vanished without even using it much. This quota should be increased."

Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."

Cons: "The food was terrible. Why can’t you just serve a regular plain meal. Why try to be fancy with all these nasty sauces. Give me a regular sandwich for lunch and some simple pasta or something. The only things edible was the fruit."

Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Crew was professional and efficient."
Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Had 3 seats to myself as plane wasn’t full."
Cons: "Long walk from connecting flights at LAX and incorrect gate number on schedule, necessitating even more walking. Exhausting before even getting on plane."

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and considerate."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved."

Cons: "Food. They ran out of the fruit plate and the other was inedible."

Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Leg room was just ok."

Pros: "Good food and snacks. Great boarding and off boarding experience. Appreciated the help by Qantas ground crew who helped me with my wheelchair in Sydney."

Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"

Cons: "MIssed out on my bloody mary!"

Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and slow. So-so food. Air New Zealand was better than Quantas for similar journey at same week of year and about the same price."

Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "Crew spoke little English it seemed. Maybe they did not understand my American accent. They never acknowledged my requests and repeatedly would overlook me for drinks or food. When I would give them my order, they would diaappear, then reappear with the order wrong. On. Every. Single. Occasion.... They were rude and dismissive. Food was barely adequate of what I served."

Pros: "Smooth flight and well managed. Coffee just not up to Australian standards."

Pros: "This flight was pretty roomy since I had a whole row to myself."
Cons: "When I checked in there were 2 employees behind the counter ignoring the line of people dropping off checked bags and 1 employee actually working to take checked bags. This is the third time in a row that this has happened on a Qantas flight for me."

Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"

Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"

Pros: "Nothing!"

I will not fly with qantas anymore...."

Pros: "staff were very friendly"
Cons: "the entertainment equipment had a glitch and not function properly"

Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "Staff of Quantas was helpful getting us on the plane after Emerites suspended our tickets We had to pay for a second set of tickets at a higher price on the day of our flight Lucky we made the flight"
Cons: "The seating was s cramped Glad the flight was only 3 hours"

Pros: "Great support with wheel-chair assist."

Cons: "747 not as pleasant or spacious as A380"

Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."

Pros: "Comfy flight. The staff were really helpful."

Pros: "I like ice cream (TipTop icecream). It was okay and much better then meal. The dark chocolate after meal was also good."
Cons: "I didn't like food in flight. I don't eat beef and the other option was not tasteful."

Pros: "Despite the delay in boarding, we were greeted with a smile from the crew. Meal service went well and love the 3 choices of meals offered in economy"
Cons: "Would be nice to check-in for flight on app instead of laptop or tablet"

Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Qantas crew were amazing. Entertainment offered was excellent."
Cons: "Not suitable meals for a long flight. E.g. Chili dogs way too messy, garlic bread should not contain garlic! Was charged an additional $35 per seat to get seat assignments 24 hrs before. Then, seats not together & changed again before flight. Why the fee for nothing?"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"

Pros: "Staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "First of all, they gave my boyfriend and me separate seats when I checked in online. I called and they said I had to sort it out when we arrived at the airport and they'd leave a note for staff. But when we got to the airport we were told they couldn't do anything because they can't move assigned seats even if the person hadn't checked in yet. Thankfully they managed to find us new seats at the gate. The gate was a bit ridiculous. It was at the far end of the airport and we had to take a decent bus ride to get to the plane. Once we all piled out of the buses, they still were t ready to board so we all had to wait in a line. The plane ended up leaving about an hour and a half late due to the location of the gate and the slow boarding process. Also, we checked in online but there was no expedient bag drop line for people already checked in, so we had to wait in a very long line to drop off our bags."

Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."

Pros: "Everything! Best Airline!"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "The on board staff were fantastic, very personable, helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Service and food where good"
Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"

Pros: "Smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "The egg salad sandwich."

Pros: "Fantastic crew on the upper deck who were trying everything they could to make me and my partner comfortable while trying to find a replacement seat with working TV equipment."
Cons: "Seats very narrow, passengers behind kicking seats because not happy that I needed to recline to sleep. Failing equipment - the TV wouldn't operate on original seat, and on new seat, the touch screen didn't work on the entire left side of the screen. The only reason I flew qantas was because I thought they had better equipment. Crew on lower deck clearly not as dedicated to service. After being moved here in the hopes of getting a new seat with a working entertainment system I knew the service would be worse - and it was."

Pros: "Not much - everything was below average Q Meal worked - the miso salmon was good. shape the breakfast was almost unedible - uncooked bacon, gooey egg stuck to side of container - mushy potato cake soaked by the fluid from the tomato - you would think they would get it right after 20 years!"
Cons: "broken tables and damaged seats ( electrical cords lose) they give you a menu and have no pre-dinner drink service don't ask for a drink after meals have been served - you won't get it too much service to ask for snacks after six hours - the staff eat them and give you their vegetarian sandwiches, then other crew try to say no that's not true - one of them is lying seats are tight - especially if you are 188cm tall. they throw all the cooked mid flight snacks out after three hours of being in the oven yet they don't walk up and down the isle and offer them to you. Yeah right - 23 staff eat them themselves. same movies and TV - I do a flight every month and its always the same with maybe one or two new movies added unloading oversize in LAX - give yourself at least 1.5 hours - they are slow and inefficient. Unloading in Melbourne was ok but bags took for ever. Wish they would go to Beijing or Shanghai and see how it is done in less than 15 minutes from docking. United/Delta is looking good at this stage"

Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."

Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."

Cons: "The title says it all. This is the first time I ever flew Qantas, and I will try to never fly with them again. I saw one of the old, battle ax stewardesses actually physically shove an elderly Chinese woman who was wandering the aisle before leaving the gate. I mean, the woman should have been in her seat, but that was no reason to body-check her like Wayne Gretzky (or Ron Barassi, take your pick)! Totally unprofessional."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. Qantas was not helpful in rebooking or any type of customer service. The food was awful and we spent an extra 24 hours of waiting/ travel time. Miserable end to a wonderful trip. Terrible!"

Pros: "So much leg room and leaning back was great!"
Cons: "Asked the attendant for tissue more than twice and she never brought it over to me."

Pros: "Check in was easy. Option to select vegetarian diet on line"
Cons: "Very crowded configuration. Older aircraft. Staff service mediocre LAX to BNE, but good from BNE to LAX."

Cons: "The airline used a codeshare that did not seem to signify anything. They would not provide me with any help when it became clear I would miss my connection. Furthermore, I purchased an extra legroom seat and was charged for it twice. Avoid if at all possible"

Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19 still waiting for refund ??"

Pros: "Crew were very caring and helpful."
Cons: "Bégaye were lost."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service is top notch. You get to eat whatever you want whenever you want (no fixed time for menu serving)."
Cons: "The in flight internet should be of better value for business travelers. Emirates offers full flight connection for business and first class."

Pros: "Crew and seats"
Cons: "Sound system,, entertainment system should not be turned off 25min before landing"

Cons: "Worst food i ever had in flight..please organize goid caterers"

Cons: "We did order food vegetarian Jain but they didn’t provide that."

Pros: "Well, it got me from Point A to Point B I guess"
Cons: "You cannot book seats in advance which is fine but one would expect that if you have 3 seats on one reservation, you would at least be seated together - nope 3 window seats all over the plane. Boarding was delayed for no reason. Bags took (no exaggeration) about 1.5 hours to come. And it is a hot mess with no carts"

Pros: "Got an upgrade to business class"

Pros: "Food was great ."
Cons: "My chair was not comfortable."

Pros: "Everything. Very accommodating."

Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."

Pros: "Etihad knows how to make you feel special, lot of smiles and nice crew who are the real hosts, never get tired and always are ready to help."

Pros: "All crew members were 5 star and so friendly! They checked many times on everyone, coming along with water often."
Cons: "The attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. very old on flight - dress warm!"

Cons: "I would have preferred A380 for the trip"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."

Cons: "Layovers"

Pros: "They provide the hotel in Abu Dhabi ."
Cons: "The food was horrible. kids mile request was ignored."

Pros: "I sat in the aisle seat so it was fairly roomy. The movies selection was very good."
Cons: "The Air Hostess was fairly rude to one particular passenger. Given that that passenger was fairly aggressive in asking for children kits, and the Air Hostess was doing her best to inform her that she has to give them all to the children first. Unfortunately it was very condescending the way she talked to the said lady. I felt that it could have been handle better. The guy next to me, his On Flight entertainment wasn't working. i felt bad for him."

Pros: "Food and hospitalityu"

Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."

Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was very little room for my legs and I couldn't rest my arm on the seat next to me since the person on my left took over. It made my flight much worse. It is difficult to fly overnight when you are so uncomfortable and the price was very high in the economy area."

Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive, courteous and professional. We arrived on time, landing was fought (night landing) and all of our luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "Airlines are nickel and dimeing the customers. Everything is being charged and many times you find out the hard way. I will avoid United due to their charging procedures and rigidity in their application of their billing."

Cons: "i ordered a vegetarian meal and didn't get one."

Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had pain and I didn’t know if the crew had any pain medication."

Pros: "The avod system of movies was good and the channel 9 ATC was amazing to listen to."

Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."

Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"

Pros: "Flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The crew was not very nice. The electric plug didn't work"

Cons: "The food was not very good"

Pros: "Short flights"
Cons: "Chilly"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Delay Food Service Plane equipment"

Pros: "The new business seat gives improved comfort. New airplane smell."
Cons: "Flight was late close to one hour because of catering. No prior notices - we were left to stand for more than an hour in front of gate. Surely and nasty elderly citizens made up the flight crew including pilots. About the same service you get from a Siberian gulag prison guard. No communications from pilots. Despite delays and turbulence we were kept in the dark."

Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."

Pros: "Nothing it was late as hell"
Cons: "Nothin"

Pros: "free entertainment system with movies, spacious seats and overhead space, drinks served, arrived early"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."

Pros: "Direct flight was convenient"
Cons: "The crew on the outbound leg of the trip was unprofessional loud and disrupted everyone's sleep."

Pros: "Very accommodating due to medicle issues."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Update the planes, been in other airlines with updated technology"

Pros: "The landing was perfect"

Pros: "Crow was great , was very nice flight actually !"

Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."

Pros: "Very profesional crew with positive attitude Take off and landing within the planed time schedule"
Cons: "Not enough movies with Hebrew subtitles For people with hearing problems English subtitles for all movies can help"

Pros: "flight is OK + in business class"
Cons: "terrible delay..."

Cons: "Self boarding is really a mess. some staff members were barely speaking english. entertainment system can be upgraded ( larger screens)"

Cons: "Such a long flight and no good food"

Pros: "San Antonio flight to Denver delayed too long where could not make connection in Denver to Toronto. Had to make other flight arrangements."

Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "We didn't have any headphones for the seat back entertainment; attendant went down one isle handing them out, but not ours (not sure why were were left out, had to flag someone down to get some)."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"
Cons: "Forced to check our carry on suitcase even though there was plenty of room above the seats."
