Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good leg space and entertainment options"

Cons: "The free WiFi was limited to a small amount of data or two hours."
Pros: "The comfort and smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Pros: "It’s no choices small portion"
Cons: "No taste a"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Water leaking into 52 and 53. Wet socks"
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "I started my journey from JFK with Emirates and before booking ticket I checked with customer care representative regarding the baggage allowance and I was told that I am allowed to carry up to 55 inch . I just carried 43 inch tv weighing 19lbs and one check-in baggage weighing 21kgs and they made me pay 175$ saying that tv size is not in allowed limitations. I have also filed complaint but didn’t get any response so far . Last year my husband carried 55 inch with ethihad from same airport JFK and was not charged single penny. so I can say there is no airport restriction as well."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep. The screens remain on even when passengers go to sleep, making it very bright in the cabin. It would be good if staff could walk through and turn them off manually."
Cons: "We reached very fast"
Pros: "Flight schedule is perfect for a family."
Cons: "Crews are not responsive to my call during the flight."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Cons: "This was a fraudulent charge!!"
Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."
Pros: "Meals and free wine were positives. Also the travel toothbrush and toothpaste were nice. Entertainment with movies and tv had a lot of variety also."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get out bags! Crew bags came out immediately but customers stood around the luggage belt for more than 45 minutes b/c thats how long it took to get our bags and many people were left. Very annoying after a 10-hour flight that lands late at night."
Pros: "Emirates is a great airline. Planes very comfortable."
Cons: "Our trip coincided with Eid. It's probably as busy a travel period as Thanksgiving. There were maybe 40 or 50 small kids on the plane, with concomitant noise, mess, and confusion. Everyone was packed in. Boarding felt chaotic. Staff did their best. Food was not as good as on some Emirates flights I've been on. However, it was over quickly. No harm done. Flying can be delightful. Or not. And Emirates seems to handle those days when "not" pretty well."
Cons: "I was not let onto the flight in Entebbe because I arrived at the airport an hour before the flight departed. I was given no notice of this rule (apparently only applicable on Emirates flights) and was forced to delay my trip 2 days and pay an additional $1045 for a replacement flight home."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew service are very good."
Cons: "boarding could have started on time."
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Pros: "The boarding process was very light and smooth . There weren't many pax though."
Cons: "A small smile by the S. Korean cabin attendant whilst conducting the service would have made the flight even more pleasant."
Cons: "Checkin process with baggage limit was so strict that they even won't let 400 gms extra. also the rep in Chennai airport does not even know that I could carry 2 pieces for carry on (laptop & carry on baggage)"
Cons: "The people at ticket issuing counter is very arrogant. Customs form was not given while issuing ticket and I was sent back to the airline ticketing counter and had to stand back in line for customs."
Cons: "The overall experience and lack of response to rectify missed connecting flights, damaged luggage and overall bad customer service for an airline that wants to advertise its pride and attention to service. Much can be improved."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was good, couple were too good Too good"
Cons: "Streamline boarding process"
Pros: "Although the printed menus are a classy touch, I feel like they are an enormous waste- completely unnecessary. At the very least they should be recycled."
Cons: "Cabin service was very slow. We were an hour and a half into each flight before we were offered a drink. No additional drinks were offered with the meal. There were no further services offered after the tea and coffee service... 3 full hours before we landed! Also, the economy class seats are extremely cramped. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I couldn't eat my mael comfortably and the TV screen was 12 inches away from my face."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Overall the service and food was nice."
Cons: "I was not able to recline my seat, so did my daughter. This happened for the first time with Emirates. It was a 16 hrs flight and gave me back ache since the passenger in front kept his seat reclined all the time. it gave me less leg room as well."
Cons: "Huge drop in the quality of the staff compare to the previous flight 4 hours earlier. A lot of staff and maybe 2 of them seemed to be concerned by their job. Most of them spent most of the time eating, drinking and talking between them. They probably spent a better flight than us. For a 7 hours flight they offered us just once to have a drink. Their office was completely messy. Nobody really care about their job. They all seemed to be in training period."
Pros: "Entertainment and comfort are nice"
Cons: "Food quality and service were mediocre at best"
Pros: "We couldn't get on the flight because of poor service from people at the counter and missed our flight. We had to be put on another flight. One of our bags has gone missing And we are waiting for it"

Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"
Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."
Pros: "Crew did their best, but that wasn't great."
Cons: "We pre ordered vegetarian meals for my vegetarian daughter, and the flight attendant went out of her way to mention that there was nothing ordered. Original direct flight from LAX to Sydney was delayed by almost 12 hours for "maintenance", so we were rerouted via SFO and Brisbane. 15 hours took 24"
Cons: "Lost 2 of 3 bags. Still don’t have them. Some staff very helpful and empathetic. Some staff very rude and abrasive. Didn’t want to take ownership and work to correct the problem. Had a “not my problem” attitude"
Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Cons: "food wasn't good"
Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."
Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."
Pros: "Could not fault"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Quality & service."

Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."
Pros: "They gave us loaner strollers to get the kids through the airport. So family friendly. Food was great too."

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "I couldn't request a vegan meal online for some reason & once i got to the airport it was too late so i went hungry"
Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."
Cons: "Bags got lost. Not enough time for connection at LAX ."
Cons: "Didn't bother to offer acting other than fruit juice, water and tea or coffee with the meal seemed in a hurry to get the meal service over"
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
Cons: "The reason for an OK overall is that I left a personal item on the flight. I contacted the airline an hour after my flight landed and they showed no urgency to recover my item that had a lot of value to me. If they could have pages the cleaning crew on the ground, I'm sure I would have recovered my notebook. Instead they told me to check 4 hours later. When i did check 4 hours later, they told me to check in 2-3 days. When i checked in 2-3 days they asked if I filed a report. Which I wanted to on the same day but was told not needed. Very disappointing ground services."
Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."
Pros: "The crew were cheery, helpful and professional."
Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Pros: "Very well organized. Crew is very friendly. Lots of little perks on the flight that many other companies don't provide."
Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"
Pros: "Even though the delay caused me to miss my connecting flight to Perth Qantas booked me onto the next available one so my overall delay was reduced to one hour. Thanks for not screwing me over."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3.5 hours so we were stuck at LAX for a long long time, way passed the closing time of all the shops and restaurants at the international terminal :(. Otherwise a great flight w decent food and great service"
Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"
Pros: "Fast self checkin"
Cons: "Entertainment screen doesn't work. Plane is freezing cold. Crew was very rude and ignores my requests. Never come when ask for service and completely ignores my first request of an extra blanket if possible. Never comeback to let me know if they have one or not and I was freezing to sick. I have to walk to the back of the plane to find someone to bring me a blanket. Yet he tries to cast me off by lying that he could not find one. When he realize that I really need one he said I can take one from empty seat if I can find any. But after me finding a blanket of another color on one of the empty seat he take it away rudely saying that it is "not for you". Come on I wouldn't take it if no one cares about me freezing and he finally bring me a blanket. And the crew was very unfriendly to me the entire time. When I tried to lay down a little, somehow it surprised the passenger who is behind me, the crew make such a scene that ask me outloud "be careful when moving your seat" well I did. Basically they make no efford to care about anything about me but are super nice to the people who's is behind me who are white and elder. Such obviously discrimination that I cannot tolerant. I have been having frequent international travel for the past 7 years and this is the first time I have such unpleasant experience. I do not recommend this company to anyone. be warned."
