Airline reviews

Pros: "Food is always the best. I had the butter chicken for dinner. It was very delicious."
Cons: "I think this was just a personal issue for me only, but I would say the atmosphere. I felt the plane was humid and often at times, I found it hard to breathe. On one occasion, a flight attendant attempted to take my food away without asking if I was finished or not. I was annoyed by their lack of manners. I also didn't like having two blankets. There was no room under the seat in front of me, to put it anywhere. It significantly reduced my comfort. The passengers sitting next to me also had no respect when they asked me to step aside and was rude in general. It made my mood worse throughout the flight but I hanged in there. It was okay."

Pros: "The seat was super uncomfortable and they switched out flights 3 times so the layovers were extremely long."
Cons: "Not switching our flights three times and not accommodating us like we had originally paid for."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"

Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."

Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."

Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"

Pros: "Crew good, seat pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seating choice was unavailable and we were stuck with two middle seats in a row of 4 across. Air NZ tried to bribe us into staying overnight and taking a one stop itinerary the next day."

Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."

Pros: "Punctual flight, great boarding and great baggage service."
Cons: "Bag drop could be improved with more personnel to help."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"

Pros: "Nice seats in Business"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."

Pros: "Movie selection is good and food is pretty good."
Cons: "Very tight in economy. I’m 5’ & normal weight and felt cramped so if you’re any taller...you’ll hate it."

Pros: "Have flown most carriers to Australia and NZ. Air NZ by far the best. I mean, I am flying cattle class, so its never going to be great. However, compared to the other carriers available, the seats are the most comfortable and have more legroom. If you can afford their sky couch, do so. Food is edible (and, to me, most airlines are not) and was nice to get WiFI all the way across for just a few air points."
Cons: "Would be nice if the seats had a foot rest, but this particular 777 did not. I have short legs."

Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."

Pros: "The flight was pretty much a plain regional hopper. I got upgraded to first but honestly it didn't feel like a significantly different experience besides legroom"
Cons: "Flights was 2.5 hours late due to weather which was the biggest downer."

Cons: "Movies"

Pros: "staff was lovely"
Cons: "didn't have a second pillow in business class bed was too flat for me. no other extras given. disappointing"

Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants"

Pros: "Blankets, entertainment"
Cons: "Preferred seating was a joke !"

Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."

Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."

Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "- Not a full flight, so empty seat next to me - Great in-flight entertainment - Great staff service"

Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "Great airline. Like all of them these days more room would be nice as would better vegetarian options. Friendly staff, they seem to care about the passenger rather than just being bossy about usually silly rules."

Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"

Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."

Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"

Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."

Pros: "Was the same, everything allright"

Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."

Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth boarding process Great entertainment system"
Cons: "temperature regulation on the plane was quite poor. Parts of the cabin were very warm and others were very cold and flight attendants had difficulty regulating the temperature. food was also quite bland."

Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."

Pros: "Excellent overall service as usual from start to finish"

Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."

Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"

Cons: "It is a toss up which airline has more uncomfortable seats, you or United. Leg room is not great and some padding would be nice."

Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly, helpful and good humored. The in-flight video and audio choices were outstanding. Meals were good but not outstanding."
Cons: "I suppose it is good marketing to make you walk past the amazing seats in business/premier class on your way past "Premium Economy" back to economy class on the Boeing 777 -- but it did make me wish I had a few thousand dollars to throw away on 13 hours of being pampered. Economy seats are pretty narrow. I am of average size and I was often bumping and being bumped by the passenger in the adjacent seat as well as by people walking up and down the aisle."

Pros: "Very attentive crew, layout, comfort"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything I wa"

Cons: "Would have been more exciting to land early if our gate was ready. Better to wait on the ground than their air I guess but after 11 hours on a plane the last thing you want to do is wait longer. Realize that's on the airport and not the airline, although there should be communication there."

Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Amazing crew."
Cons: "I think everything was upto the mark."

Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "See the comments for — the flight from Kochi to Dubai In reality — much worst"

Pros: "The crew helped us move into a row that had an extra seat thus making the journey for us and our neighbours comfortable."
Cons: "More food service would be helpful. There were limited snacks(mostly containing chocolate or candy - which I did not prefer) and only bananas as fruit. Could have used oranges or apples for the kids."

Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"

Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Pros: "As above"

Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Did not have all the food options listed"

Pros: "The crew was second to none."
Cons: "The duty-free at Dubai was disappointing."

Pros: "Great quality food for a flight."
Cons: "WiFi did not work, ever. Staff could have been a bit nicer."

Pros: "Our first two times on EMIRATES airline. 15+ hours going East and then back home. An absolute joy compared to our tired traditional USA choices. Hopefully UNITED and AMERICAN can somehow update."
Cons: "All good even on a full 400 passenger flight!!"

Pros: "I liked the passengers"
Cons: "dirty toilets,clogged,seats dirty,crew not enthousiastic, left overs from previews passengers,expired candies."

Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."

Pros: "Long but ok"
Cons: "There is no reason to not like it."

Pros: "Emirates flights are awesome and have a good stuff. Very well organized staff and good food served"
Cons: "Nothing bad."

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"

Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "Some people requesting me to exchange seats. They were young boys. This is the second time in Emirates."

Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."

Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"
Cons: "Trash was not picked up frequently enough. By the end of the flight the plane was a pig sty. Also there was no toilet paper in the bathroom at the deprting airport"

Pros: "Crew professionalism, Entertainment Flight timing Take off and landings"

Pros: "Nothing. Will not travel again on Emirates"
Cons: "Food Comfort level Flight delay"

Pros: "Legroom and how attentive and pleasant the fight crew was."

Pros: "Comfort, service, food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Airport staff were not very descriptive or helpful with directions. Talked to me like I was dumb...."

Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"

Cons: "Bathrooms were not clean later in the flight"

Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food food and food"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The seating had enough room which made us feel comfortable. Also, the food is is per expectations"

Cons: "food could have been better. this was my first emirates flight and i was expecting high reviews, but i personally like turkish airlines better."

Cons: "Bumpy landing"

Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Food service was chaotic, delayed. For the main meal, the hot entree came about 20 mins after we received the tray with the rest of the food. Some snacks advertised were not served at all."

Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"

Pros: "Staff was great. Dealt with new lack of electronics fairly organized for such a sudden thing. Food and flight were good."
Cons: "This isnt a complaint about screaming babies. They dont know any better. But kids that are 3-6 or so? They shouldnt be screaming for hours, kicking seats and the plane window, ignoring and talking back to flight attendants etc. What terrible parents. They left the plane a mess too with food and trash all over the place."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Multiple times I overheard the crew rudely tell elderly foreign passengers that "no this is all we have, only chicken, if you don't want that then you'll have to wait" usually this was said to someone of color and who's english wasn't very good."

Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"

Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."

Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."

Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."

Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"

Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."

Pros: "A380"
Cons: "Cabin service"

Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

Cons: "Small and bland food. Very limited entertainment. TV didnt work but they gave me an ipad."

Pros: "I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken."

Pros: "Service is nice. Very friendly. Food is good."

Pros: "Food was very tasty. In-flight movies were up to date and very good."

Cons: "Airport crew rude"

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."
Cons: "Connecting in LAX with waiting 20 minutes at the remote gate for the bus, the bus ride and waiting for luggage to clear customs is virtually impossible to go though and make the connection.

American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."

Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."

Pros: "Read above"
