Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Check in was okay."
Cons: "We thought that the food was not up to Emirates standard as we have previously flown with them before. Disappointing really."
Pros: "Brought me to liberty. The Kingdom of Thailand. Great Airline. Reasonable Price. Excellent treatment at Dubai international airport. TSA was also good at Liberty International Airport."
Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."
Cons: "There is nothing to improve. I wish other airlines can learn from them."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a great selection, leg space even in economy is big enough."
Cons: "Definitely food, mozarella sandwich was of very poor quality. Also after serving food, it takes them 2 hours to collect trays so you get stuck on your seat and can forget about toilet :("
Cons: "I could not check in to book my preferred seating because my flight connections was a mixed carrier flight. Website did not tell me what was the issue so I kept trying. Also would have preferred it if I could have checked in online for my emirates routes but that option was not available."
Cons: "Staff service was not good"
Pros: "Good service by Emirates"
Pros: "Emirates has great programming and the TV screens are the best I've experienced among airlines. LOTS of choices, great sound, screens not to dark like many on US-based carriers and GREAT Headphones."
Cons: "Restrooms, even before flight took off, smelled of urine like they had not been cleaned. Lines to use them were very long. Leg room SUCKED (and I am not a big person).....maybe 30-31 inches, but my knees were banging up against the seat in front of me!!! I booked this ticket thinking that economy would have more room than US-based carriers and it did not. It did not help to have a very large man spilling over into my seat from the middle seat (although he was very nice....still resent paying for a seat I don't have full "bandwidth" for),"
Pros: "Very Very Good"
Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late. Since the airlines only gave us a 2 hour layover knowing we would have to go through immigration and retrieve our luggage and recheck it, we missed our connection, then the airline tried to make us wait another 18 hours for a flight. We had been already traveling for two days. Airline offered no expedited support to get off the plane first or help through immigration, completely unacceptable!"
Pros: "The flight was quiet."
Cons: "Service is extremely slow."
Cons: "Full aircraft so pick you seats early"
Pros: "The entertainment was comprehensive. I also liked the number of options for the complimentary beverages."
Cons: "The economy seats are not as comfortable as advertised. The breakfast was good, but the chicken dinner was bland."
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: "I got upgraded to business class"
Pros: "Love it. Classy flight attendants, great service."
Cons: "Crying baby"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"
Cons: "We had to negotiate with passengers to get our children together as we had been allocated scattered seats It is very irritating to see that you need to pay extra to get your seats in advance which is like any other budget airline, not expected of Emirates"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Beautifully dressed; impeccable makeup; very professional. Very friendly, helpful. PILOTS were amazing!!! GREAT FLIGHT, LITTLE TURBULENCE. LOVE the stickers found in the bag with the earphones, ("WAKE FOR FOOD", "DO NOT WAKE FOR FOOD", etc) but they were never mentioned by the crew. Found them by myself. I think more people would use if they knew about them. LOVE the gift bag with eye mask, etc. Very welcome gift."
Cons: "Seats are too small. Very difficult to stand up and get out of your seat. Even young people have trouble getting up and out into the aisle. The aisle is TOO NARROW! At least one seat on each row should be eliminated, as well as one row to give economy class room. I was on the aisle (seat D), and was unlucky to have a woman and her husband (seats E & F) ask me to get up several times (because passenger in seat G was asleep). I was not at all happy with the movie choices; they were mostly modern and violent. Food selection was unavailable. Menu choices were chicken & fish. Chicken was NOT AVAILABLE."
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Very courteous and attentive And always with a smile! A great way to travel, it's hard to go back to other airlines after having experienced Emirates!"
Cons: "Not having an aisle seat made it very difficult for my handicapped husband to get in and out of his seat. We had to wait for our neighbors to step out of their seat and take advantage to do the same. Felt very claustrophobic. Service was not good, we rang the bell several times to get some help and no one came to our assistance and we gave up after that. The crew told us they had run out of some juices that we would have liked."
Pros: "Very good it's the best. Ik"
Pros: "Overall ok"
Cons: "Food options for AVML or VML pretty sad for options , taste and service too. even after ordering AVML all across the cabin crew was going thru major issues with finding the food for me for AVML food got served after they served everyone on the flight. lot of effort made by the crew but cant blame them for it. Indian food / Vegetarian meal / Asian vegetarian Meal options are varied and can be filtered to basic but classic food options that can make not just me but there are lot of people like me have a good experience with food. even the fruit platter ordered was not appealing."
Pros: "I like the confirt and the on time flight."
Cons: "As I'm pilot and being my first flight in a A380, I would like to visit the plane what was denied by a cabin crew."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."
Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Pros: "I ordered Asian vegetarian food but was given normal vegetarian food. However, it wasn't a big problem. Apart from that, everything was fine."
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Smallest leg room ever"
Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."
Cons: "The booking site limited my name to 24 characters and charged me $200 to fix it on the ticket."
Cons: "No one weighted my cabin bag while checking in. Before the security control, Emirates ground staff stopped me and weighted my cabin bag that was 8.4, around a kg extra. They didn't allow me boarding until I threw 4 shirts to the garbage and I reduced the weight. Staff was just unbelievably rude."
Cons: "Flying east from Brazil by Emirates to join my friend in Dubai and then not allowed on the aircraft because I missed the gate by 5 mins. The next flight was two days later!!!"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Efficient and punctual boarding and baggage service. Staff was so friendly and attentive."
Cons: "My check in luggage was torn. The handle was ripped off from one side. :("
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"

Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice and friendly."
Pros: "Lots of food"
Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."
Pros: "Comfort and space inside aircraft is excellent, very good entertaiment and movies"
Cons: "Some stewardesses were in a bad mood and responded badly to passengers"
Pros: "The stewards were really fantastic, and what started out as a delay because of air traffic control, wound up landing on time. Really smooth flight."
Pros: "It was more comfortable than a US carrier's coach class, but ,8 hours in coach is still rough."
Cons: "Half way through the flight my bulkhead seat pop up screen would not remain in upright locked position so I had hold it up with extra pillows"
