Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"

Pros: "I had really high expectations for this trip but they were unmet. The service was indifferent. The chair wasnuncomfortable. The aisle was super narrow. I was bumped the entire flight. I didn’t like the food. And it was obvious by the end of the trip the staff was just done. Leaving the plane I passed several attendants and they did not say anything. They didn’t thank me for my business. They did t say goodbye or encourage me to come again — they were oblivious and no caring."

Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"

Pros: "pleasant staff excellent movie selection decent food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "EVERYTHING"

Pros: "The aircraft and flight crew was good. Entertainment selection is awesome."
Cons: "People traveling on this sector just don't know how to behave. It's amazing how the crew puts up with this. As the food service is going on, there were several people who wanted to move up and down the aisle disrupting the service several times. When the flight was taxiing after landing, people had already got up from their seats and were trying to take their bags. Despite many announcements, pax did not care. Hats off to the crew who patiently handled it."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "Nothing. Bad crew."
Cons: "No option for vegetarian food on the menu. I had booked vegetarian meal option when I booked tickets, but by the time they got to my seat, I was told there is no more veggie meal left.. it happened with both dinner and breakfast. I asked the flight attendant to substitute some fruits for the egg, so that I can eat something. They said at 30000 feet altitude, the options were limited. I told him, so are my options limited, and running out of veggie food is not my problem, when I had booked veggie meal at 30000 feet and a flight duration of 16 hours. The attitude of one flight attendant "Ahmed" was horrible. He was never helpful, mean to passengers and would not offer any solution to any problem... I was travelling with an infant, and he refused to fill a bottle of water to prepare milk, and said that I had to wait until they finished their ongoing service.."

Cons: "movies selection"

Pros: "Helpful staff,gave me seats requested,meals pretty good,good entertainment,even got to see despicable me 3 and didn't need a kid."
Cons: "Would have loved business class,but what can u do,only thing was I had to remind about my skywards miles.."

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Overall experiance."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The AirBus A380 plane is amazing! Really great movie options too - almost too much choice."
Cons: "They randomly chose us to conduct a carryon bag search, which is fine. But they also randomly chose 100 other passengers and there wasn't enough information or staff to do this random check efficiently. Hence, we were more than an hour delayed."

Pros: "Best"
Cons: "Best"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Emirates and it will not be our last. The staff, service and experience has been very pleasant."

Pros: "So nice to still fly on a comfortable seat and with great and friendly service."

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Pros: "The outbound service from US was 10 times better than the inbound. US to Dubai would get 10/10 however the same flight inbound in terms of service, crew, food was 5/10."

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Cons: "I pre-selected the Asian Veg Meal but they were out and I didn't get any meal because of that."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "service from a crew member. she was not obliging. we asked for blanket and she responded whenever i am free will give you.which never happened. and she was giving extra good service to the passenger in front of me . she was shouting at passengers as if we are animals"

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

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."

Pros: "I like the food"
Cons: "I don't like the rule of luggage"

Pros: "good baby gifts"
Cons: "a bassinet brought for 40 minutes before landing. Forgot to feed. I had to demand a meal for me and the baby and toddler. In the cabin cold. With this flight crew the flight attendants did not like."

Cons: "Restrooms trash bins were full midway through the flight and never cleaned. The restroom floors were full of used diapers causing the restroom and area around them to stink."
