Cons: "I was overcharged for the fare. I was shown a fare for $627 n got charged $688.00. why?"

Pros: "The attendant helped find me a vegan option at the last second."

Pros: "Same as first trip but this time the manager gave us some crackers and chocolate because we asked her to give us something to eat"
Cons: "Same as first trip but this time we were more mad and the food was like rubber we told the manager and she brought us some of the crews food and we still didn’t have any food because it smelled rotten"

Pros: "Valuable reminders ! Updates regarding flights was superb."
Cons: "Nothing to say."

Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."

Pros: "Delayed departure. Unable to catch up time. Landed late. Bus took a very long time. Missed the connecting flight"
Cons: "Hotel with all meals provided."

Pros: "The boarding and immigration process was smooth and trouble free"
Cons: "Leg space was inadequate for an international flight."

Pros: "Breakfast and lunch were both tasty"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour for our bags at BHX"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."

Pros: "Delayed by 3 hours!!"

Pros: "some new movies"
Cons: "Crew was very unprofessional, they need lots of training. Emirates should hire people who can handle english language properly No proper service of food or drinks ... they had all like beer, wines , spirits.. but the crew was not offering anything"

Pros: "The crew and my fruit platter."
Cons: "So many screaming babies. So many passsengers wanting a few upgrade. And a sick passenger that had to deplane resulting in delayed take off. The crew were saints- composed, polite, and embodied team spirit. So many screaming babies."

Pros: "Onboard comfort and entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding from Dhaka in business is worst than economy class from most location. There were mosquitos in the plane, food quality was not thrilling and crew was caring but needs a little more experience for business class."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worse food Old flight Late boarding"

Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."

Pros: "Hard working, friendly, and effective team. Your customer care is matchless!"
Cons: "I only have one objection. The crew lost control of restroom cleanliness toward the end of the flight. I know this is a challenge on a long flight, but your crews normally do better."

Cons: "The seat was not going back. Food and tea didn't come on time."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. All of them. They gave me great service. It was once of the best long haul flights I've had in economy. Fantastic. I was seated in seat 80H. Please see to it that the cabin crew who serviced this area are well rewarded. If every flight had crew like these guys and gals then flying would be a lot more enjoyable."
Cons: "I really can't find anything to complain about."

Cons: "Movie selection somewhat limited"

Pros: "Loved to watch a movie and get wonderful service"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."

Pros: "First time flying Emirates. Friendly and attentive staff. Flew on schedule. Comfortable seats. Nice food and clean restrooms."

Pros: "I like the crew they were so accommodative"
Cons: "No comments"

Pros: "Good seat pitch in economy and good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Service, food, crew and the A380 was great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Really small space. Airport crew was dismal. Boarding was more disorganized than in a poor African country and boarding is easy, I really don't understand"

Pros: "Console"
Cons: "Late take off"

Pros: "I love the experience of fly with kayak and look forward to many more"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was expected from a good flight."

Pros: "Had salmon which was amazing"

Pros: "First time on Emirates. Love the entertainment system and the staff is friendly and incredibly professional. Will travel Emirates whenever I can if I am traveling internationally."

Pros: "The crew was bery rude and not helpful at all. Worst airline we have ever used"

Pros: "The comfort of flight and the service ."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."

Pros: "I like Big TV"
Cons: "After shown the back door of the plane, 7 others were stuck in a lift for an hour, it was too hot. help didn't come soon enough. Ignored by airport staff and cabin crew"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing. This is the best airline ever!"

Pros: "Flight wasn't filled. Takes off and lands at not-business ideal times so it was perfect flight for vacation. Crew remained quiet and left lights off full flight instead of turning them on and off"

Pros: "Compare Air Portugal who flew this part to Emirates is like comparing chalk and cheese. Air Portugal need to up their game."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor boarding. TAP should reduce the recline of the seats to give more comfort for those behind. More and more airlines are reducing the recline to save annoyance to others."

Pros: "Love it and I had a middle seat !!!!"
Cons: "The food was good v and excellent service and entertainment"

Cons: "Had some problems with the touch screen entertainment system which meant I was somewhat limited in the program's I could view. Other passengers seemed to have a similar problem. Did not speak to crew member as i did not realize at the time that others had a problem. Thought it was just an issue for me."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The vegan (strict vegetarian) meals are great, and they stick with assigned seats which I like as well. Hindu meals contain meat and are not vegetarian, meaning Hindu meals only exclude beef."
Cons: "Please people, to make everyone else's ride more enjoyable please do not overpack. You really only need one suitcase and one carryon at maximum even if you are staying in a country for a month or longer. Just wash your clothes there."

Cons: "Flight from Dubai to Delhi could use better TVs, more modern quality and food as well"
