Pros: "everything from security check, boarding, crew, food was excellent, I have no complaints about my trip from Dubai to NewYork, I wish it was the same between Mumbai to Dubai..again Emirates need to train their staff @ Mumbai airport, It was one of my bad experience ever on any airlines or airport."
Cons: "everything is great, no reason to complain."
Cons: "No need for improvement"

Cons: "Food could be tastier. But, you can’t starve"
Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"
Cons: "It was good service by emirates"
Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Pros: "Seating space in the plane"
Cons: "The crew was quite rude. My flight got cancelled and the next day there was no veg food in the flight. It’s a 14 hour flight for god’s Sake!"
Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."
Pros: "Flight attendant understood my need and gave me aisle seat. Was very sick"
Pros: "Aircraft was fantastic, great cabin crew helpful, toilets bigger than usual, seat space good. Thanks Emirates"
Cons: "I think Emirates should consider serving the cocktails/pre-meal drinks before the meal - after all, Gin and Tonic or Martinis just don't work during after meals. But this is minor gripe, the airline is great."
Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."
Pros: "On time, entertainment good crew"
Cons: "Food was bland"
Pros: "I love business class the best"
Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"
Cons: "I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Crew was incredible, food was incredible."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good"
Cons: "Changed flights in Dubai but there were not enough or easy directions. Could not hear boarding announcements due to announcement issues. Crew who served were rude and not useful most time, except couple of crew members. Ear phone not working, took a while after asking to get new one. Food was cold and poor - did not have second bite on most food. Crew serving was as if they were in training (must be) Cramped seat, which did not recline much, which was unusual for Emirates. Glad to be out of that plane."
Pros: "customer service of crew was good."
Cons: "there were many who were selected for extra screening (code SSS) this process added a great amount of confusion (without any communication) we were screened and put in an isolation area where we were not allowed to leave or use a bathroom. We were there for over one hour. at one point, we were moving into a long tube like structure where we stayed for at least 30 minutes while others were boarding from an different ramp. the communication was non existent and we were made to feel like prisoners. actually, we were prisoners."
Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."
Cons: "Bad experience my mother 73 years old and pre booked wheel chair but not provided in Dubai Air port while transferring time and also misguided us very short distance for walk. she faced lot of trouble to walk ."
Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg"
Pros: "Economy class is very comfortable, crew was pleasant and food was good. Overall the 13 hour flight felt pretty painless."
Cons: "I wish the crew would have done a better job controlling passengers who were trying to unload luggage from the overhead while the plane was still taxiing. I had a bag dropped on me and the crew didn't seem to have control over passengers who were blatantly disregarding instructions."
Cons: "Only problem was lots of children running around, screaming, and generally causing commotion. Some Parents did not attempt to calm their children. Might be worth seating families with young children together so they don't disturb older travelers to"
Cons: "I was treated differently, because, I bought my ticket from Kayak and not directly from Emirates."
Pros: "good food, empty seats for snoozing and very helpful flight crew."
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "I flew from Singapore to New York with a 1 hour 15 minute layover in Dubai. Passengers with layovers were instructed to be at the next gate 45 minutes in advance of boarding. This was seemingly impossible and cause myself and many other passengers severe anxiety running through the airport. The first flight landed 10 minutes late in Gate C, took another 10-15 minutes to off board, at which point we were held by a flight attendant who later guided us to get on a bus to take us between terminal A and C. The entire trip between gates was approximately 30 minutes and we inexplicably had to pass through security 3 times during the layover. It seemed poorly organized and myself and other passengers just made the second flight before the doors closed."
Pros: "Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew."
Cons: "As far as a reasonably priced economy flight, I can't think of a think. Of course, I'd always like a bigger seat but even those were better than most."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
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: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."
Pros: "i will be recommending Emirates to ally my friends which will ever be able to use them"
Pros: "I liked the customer service, entertainment, flight Attendants, food and everything that Emirates has to offer! I felt like I was in first class while in coach!!!"
Cons: "The duration of the flight was extremely long and that made me uncomfortable and it was hard to sleep."
Cons: "Great movie selection and food."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
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."
Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."
Pros: "screen, ubs charger"
Cons: "be more careful with luggage; 8 flights on this trip and it would be this last one that my luggage cover was lost, and it wasn't a cheap one."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Crew was professional and efficient."
Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats are too small, uncomfortable. We had a 50 minute delay in departure."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Good seat, great service. Typical quality QANTAS flight - perfect"
Cons: "Maybe the seat could have been more comfortable."
Pros: "Same as previous answer!"
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: "Small, uncomfortable economy seating. Crew came by infrequently but were attentive when they came."
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."
Cons: "In flight wifi and entertainment didnt work"
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."
Pros: "Crew were generally friendly."
Cons: "Food was appalling. Told I had no choice and then what I got was inedible. Wine selection very small also. Two toilets for all of Business Class - always busy, super small and really substandard."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; the section at the back of the plan with drinks and small snacks was also good music selection was also excellent"
Cons: "the meals were not great and spaced out a lot. no green tea, no eyemasks and socks provided"
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"
Cons: "My business class seat was the bulk head seat. I paid dearly for this ticket and was scheduled to do business in Sydney when we landed. Having both the bathroom and food prep just beside the bulk head seat means that the staff needs to mandate a quite environment so that those persons in those seats can sleep. The staff fraternized with the passenger and I was unable to sleep. I should have been warned about this seat selection. Also the curtain that separates the areas should provide more sound proofing ability. Devastated upon arrival. This was one of my worst Qantas experiences."
Cons: "747 not as pleasant or spacious as A380"
Cons: "Qantas food gets worse each flight."
Pros: "The wide selection of free movies and TV shows. The food is tasty!"
Cons: "Our first flight to LAX was delayed by 7 hours so we spent the day in Sydney airport, spending more money on meals that hadn’t been planned. Because of the delay, we missed our connecting flight from LAX to JFK. The flight we were re-booked on was also delayed for mechanical/paperwork issues so we arrived back home in NYC 8 hours later than originally scheduled. This caused us to spend more money on a taxi since it was too late to take public transportation. it also made it difficult to settle back in at home because both my husband and I had to get up early for work the next day and we missed several hours of unpacking and cooking time we would have had had our flight not been delayed."
Pros: "*Our flight from LA to Melbourne on January 7th was cancelled. Fortunately, Qantas crew members were able to place us on an American Airlines flight to JFK the very same day."
Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."
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: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."
Pros: "Getting through airport at Sydney was nice and easy, and good overall at JFK."
Cons: "LAX was not an easy navigation from terminal to terminal, as there was little info provided in flight and a serious lack of good signage or information booths at the airport."
Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."
Cons: "The delay was just disappointing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats so close together, very difficult tou get out to use facilities. Meals tasty."
Cons: "See last comment above."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! Attentive, humorous, efficient and very professional."
Cons: "The plane is well outdated. Cramped seats for a 14 hour flight. Minuscule TV screens. The 747 is a health hazard for flights over 6 hours. Bring on a Dreamliner or an A383 for that flight - PLEASE!!!"
Cons: "Cramped in economy, little space. So few staff members for economy. Had business on way over and obviously had so much attention"
Pros: "Smooth and timely flight."
Cons: "The egg salad sandwich."
Pros: "The crew in the ground and plane were very accommodating for Sydney to New York flight."
Cons: "On the flight from New York to Sydney the crew were rude and indifferent to needs even condescending."
Pros: "Fortunately for me my wife had to cancel her return flight in the last minute so seat was ok"
Cons: "Type of seats not comfortable. Even MD380 seats were better"
Pros: "It was nice that the flight was not full and we were able to stretch out in neighbouring seats. It was nice that the lights were left low for longer than a night's sleep, as not everyone wants to sleep at the same time on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food service was slow, and refills were not offered as has been the case on many other trans Pacific flights I have been on. Also we did not receive the mid flight snack that was listed on the menu. The meals themselves were not as tasty, varied, nor as filling as those on Fiji Airways and United Airlines. My dinner had only pasta with sauce in the container, with no other vegetable offered. I was still hungry after eating my breakfast, and I was only offered tea, when I expected both a choice of juice and tea."
Cons: "tv monitor didn't work well."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"
Pros: "Received official flight delayed notice by email. New takeoff time 9:00 AM....Actual closer to 9:30. Caused by waiting for flight QF11 from Sydney and mechanical issues or something else which caused JFK passengers from another flight to be put aboard QF11 continuation to JFK. Turbulent air most of the way to JFK, no fault of Qantas. However pilot made no effort to avoid it or was not allowed to go to another flight level. In any event no communication from Capt. Food was mediocre at best. Cabin crew was getting beaten up by turbulence. They did the best they could. Arm rest USB power receptacle broke and headphone jack faulty (60C)."
Pros: "Despite very difficult and stressing transfer process and delay of connecting flight for 1 hour, we arrived on time to JFK. The crew was very nice. The food was good."
Cons: "The time for transfer was absolutely not sufficient, because there were long lines everywhere, no signs where to go next. Only at the end of a very long way there was a representative of Quantas to show us the way. We were very nervous because of uncertainty and came late to the gate. Then it turned out that there were many people behind us. The plane was waiting for them for about an hour. Finally, everybody came. It would be much more logical, if from the beginning the connecting flight to JFK was postponed to some more appropriate time."
Cons: "Bags got lost. Not enough time for connection at LAX ."
Pros: "Crew and foodnostfing"
Cons: "Boarding unorganized."
Pros: "Crew service."
Cons: "Seating place."
Pros: "- The kindness of the crew members - The food - The entertaining aboard"
Cons: "Special food was very bad. It smells."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 mins after it said it would on the boarding pass, and then was delayed further by an ill passenger. We ended up leaving about 60-90 minutes late."
Pros: "They still serve free food and beverages, even on cross country flights. There were plenty of movie choices to keep us occupied."
Pros: "Should have put me on one of the Qantas flights that left sooner, no explanation, no compensation."
Cons: "Was not the original scheduled flight."
Pros: "I was able to make a connection without too much hassle"
Cons: "I had a economy plus flight booked and should have been on a Qantas from LA to JFK but due to delays I was put on an AA flight and downgraded to economy. I could have just as easily been upgraded to business - you chose not to do that."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants were more interested in socializing with each other than working. More interested in talking about what they were going to do in NY. They were not neatly dressed as compared to others Quantas crew members on other flights, before our meal was served they were eating rolls before serving us. Changing flights was a mess, getting your bags, going though customs, picking up bags and having to go so far in the airport to go check in again was disorganized. Food was not good, fish was fishy, worst meal in three weeks of traveling off and on plans in and out of AU."
Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."
