Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."

Pros: "I did like the cleanliness ."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all . Stewerdess did not smile at all .. only to their “favorite “ 2 or 3 passengers. I can’t believe I did not receive a hot tea on the way to Athens or the way back to Newark."

Pros: "The food was great. Don't be scared of giving vegetarians dairy though unless they specify vegan."

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Better food than out of Newark. Crew helpful as always."
Cons: "Legroom is poor but unlike the Newark-Athens leg, I was able to get an aisle seat that allowed me to stretch a bit. Choice of English language movies is poor. Depending on the price I would still prefer the Delta non stop flight from US to Greece because of the movie choices and ease of use of remote control."

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Pros: "The cabin crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The flight seemed crowded and did not have enough room for carry on baggage."

Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Good selection of movies. Nice staff- some of which were able to handle difficult customers better than others."
Cons: "Both flights to Athens and returning to New York were very delayed. As a result, passengers were annoyed and staff members looked obviously stressed as well. On the whole my impression is that this airline keeps up appearances very well but is in fact somewhat disorganized."

Cons: "Newark airport is depressing. Lighting in boarding area is simply awful. Also, cab fare to and from NYC is much too high. Midnight departure time of the flight to Greece is inconvenient. It is just too late. Getting through customs at Newark is a chore. There are not enough computers for passengers to report what they have to report. Also, many passengers I saw did not know how to use a computer."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Once on the flight everything was great! Flying stars"
Cons: "Online check-in was a horrible experience and a waste of time. I was never able to check in before getting to the airport. Website kept kicking back errors when trying to check in."

Pros: "Tons of movies!"
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Positives were the movie options and they give you a kit with an eye mask etc"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 50 minutes. Crew was all grumpy making the delay and flight less bareable. They were attentive, not sure I saw anyone smile. It wasn't pleasant"

Pros: "The service the movies the food"

Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."

Cons: "Takeoff was a bit delayed, but the biggest problem is that we waited over an hour for our bags in Newark."

Pros: "Loved my experience with Emirates. It was the best international flight I've ever had. The seats are comfortable, the entertainment options are great, staff was all very friendly, alcoholic drinks were complimentary, they give you a great care package with socks, ear plugs, toothbrush and paste, and the price was great!"
Cons: "The only negative thing I have to say is the food isn't good, but that's to be expected for me as I'm very picky. I just pack my own food and snacks."

Cons: "Same movies"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough, take-off was roughly on time, and the flight as a whole was a bit faster than predicted. Friendly flight attendants. Plenty of entertainment options (movies, TV, music). AC outlet on seatback made it possible to charge devices in-flight."
Cons: "Food was so-so, and not particularly healthy and loaded with carbs (e.g. potatoes plus crackers plus pasta salad plus very sweet desserts), but overall somewhat typical for air flights in my experience. Seat pitch (aka leg room) was basically adequate for me (6' 4"), but not great. Touch screens on entertainment system on both outbound and return flights were a little wonky -- needed re-calibration, so it was impossible to activate virtual buttons near the edges of the screen."

Pros: "everything was very nice!"

Pros: "Typical Emirates excellence"

Pros: "we were travelling with kids. They pulled us from the back and put us in the front since our group of 6 had two small kids. They were extremely nice to us in athens."
Cons: "I just wish there was a snack in the middle of the service."

Pros: "5000 channels. Entire Alien movie series :) Also food was excellent."

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"

Pros: "I can't believe how nice this was for getting such a good price. Good space, Tons of movies, super attentive staff."

Pros: "Nice food. Fast boarding. Liked the small bag with travel products."
Cons: "Crew gathered blankets 30' before landing while the cabin was really cold. Crew didn't ask if you want sth to drink and were just passsing by with the trays.Movies didn't have english subs while at the same time sound was bad."

Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."

Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."

Pros: "Business class upgrade was available for this flight, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, at best. Odd food combination choices. I don't expect gourmet on a flight, so don't try to pretend you're serving it."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, boarding was OK. Leg-room much better than on competing direct flight US carriers, and aircraft cabin better maintained."
Cons: "Food for kids terrible, just not edible taste-wise. Catering is better flying out of Greece than on same flight returning from U.S. Bathrooms need to be cleaned and restocked during flight."

Pros: "Food, comfort, service -- all excellent for the 10hr flight from Athens to NYC! Hands down better than any other airline I've flown with for same number of hours and distance."
Cons: "While there was much in the way of options for entertainment, navigating the system & touch screen was a pain. Often the mouse doesn't follow your touch and you end up clicking things you didn't mean to click + having to press multiple times."
