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: "- 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)"

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: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."

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."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Management"

Pros: "Service leg space"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Hospitality"

Cons: "4 hr delay"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and considerate."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved."

Pros: "The crew members were very helpful and the seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "I almost missed my return flight. It was a 9:40pm flight but the lady at the counter said that because i bought my ticket early, the flight time changed to 8:40pm because of time change. I think that needs to be factored in when selling tickets don't surprise customers."

Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"

Pros: "enjoyed the newer planes"
Cons: "less use of single use plastics. air canada could become a pioneer and use compostavle plastics or better yet the new paper box water bottles!"

Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"

Pros: "The 787 dreamliner does an excellent job flying, with reduced cabin noise."
Cons: "The passengers with a small child behind us were very noisy and bumping/pushing into our seat-backs way too much. The boarding was a bit chaotic. Defining the boarding sequence based on row numbers should help."

Pros: "Great leg room. Good food and entertainment."

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work or was buggy for the entire flight and while we got an apology, we got no other compensation. Also, with 2 hours left in the flight, the flight attendants loudly woke everyone up in the plane and forcefully raised everyone's seats, even if they were asleep, so that they could serve breakfast to everyone. That was an incredibly rude awakening."

Pros: "The boarding was on time. The crews were great. Food were good."
Cons: "I reserved for a window seat but I still end up in the aisle."

Pros: "Direct flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Good price, on sale."
Cons: "Leg room okay unless person in front puts there seat back and then it is almost impossible to be comfortable, even if you put your seat back. Food distribution is done in mysterious ways. Movies were the same coming and going even though it was more than a month between flights."

Cons: "The seat space is a bit small, there is too less Chinese and Japanese movies to choose from."

Cons: "Long delay for the flight"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Very good service"

Pros: "All the services"

Cons: "We were unable to access the boarding area until about 15 min prior to the flight for some unknown reason. We were held in an "anteroom" area. The boarding process was a bit confused as a result."

Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Nice airline with lots of room for a very long flight. Seats next to me were empty so I could lay down but unfortunately a bad respiratory illness prevented me from doing that. But still comfortable. Nice variety of food."
Cons: "All good. Movie selection could have been a little better maybe."

Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."

Pros: "Despite the delay in boarding, we were greeted with a smile from the crew. Meal service went well and love the 3 choices of meals offered in economy"
Cons: "Would be nice to check-in for flight on app instead of laptop or tablet"

Pros: "Unfortunately I didn't get to travel, yet I paid $625! What a load of sh!& How is this legal? Sorry I wasn't able to understand 100% of what I read, and was naive to think that your company wasn't profiting off of deceiving customers. It's ridiculous to make someone read through 3 different "terms and conditions" and expect them to check all of the policies of the airline before they commit to the reservation. The wording also doesn't read easy and requires an attorney to read through. This is a scam."
Cons: "I would like to know who is telling me the truth regarding why i $500 was taken from my refund when I was forced to cancel my flight due to not getting my visa. I think it's interesting that as I typed this, as soon as I typed justfly.com or kayak.com, a window popped up encouraging me to write my comment in feedback, not here, yet when I wrote kiwi.com or priceline.com, nothing popped up. This just confirms that there are many people out there that believe they were deceived by these two companies and it's unfortunate that Qantas is looking just as guilty of cheating people out of their hard EARNED money."

Pros: "The food, movies and service."

Cons: "The QF 73 was more than 4 hrs late. The boarding ticket states boarding @16:30, but no one said anything and the PA gave no announcement. The actual boarding did not happen until after 17:00."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"

Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"

Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."

Cons: "No any explanation to delayed about 2 hours that resulted in missing the connected flight for more than 10 hours."

Cons: "A jacket of ours was accidentally left on the plane, and when I returned 5 minutes later I was not allowed to retrieve it. So I went to flight services to try and retrieve the jacket and they did almost nothing to try and help me get it. In fact we ultimately lost the jacket because they told us that they probably threw it away with all of the blankets and pillows from the flight. That was very frustrating."

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"

Pros: "Helpful staff, good vegetarian foods"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very rough ride"

Cons: "My boyfriend and I paid extra to have our seats next to our friends and each other, and they messed up on all 4 flights we had. The first flight they couldn't even make it right and the service lady was very rude and not helpful. I hope I never have to use their service in the future. They should take a page from Alaska Airlines whose service is always amazing."

Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."

Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. Qantas was not helpful in rebooking or any type of customer service. The food was awful and we spent an extra 24 hours of waiting/ travel time. Miserable end to a wonderful trip. Terrible!"

Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable and I was able to get much sleep on the 14 hr flight"

Pros: "service"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."

Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."

Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."

Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"

Pros: "Interection with various crews when ever necessary."
Cons: "The one and a half hours waiting at the immigration. Only 3 officers to serve hundreds in line."

Cons: "Where do I start !!!! Horrible service bad food no class ... Would never fly Fiji Airways if I have other options . Sad that it's the only airline flying to Fiji ."

Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."

Cons: "Airport crew rude"

Cons: "Narrow aisles"

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. Having literary run out of customs and being told you missed your boarding time and now you are on stand by is not happy making. American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."

Pros: "Overall service is good for a short flight"

Cons: "The legroom and my touchscreen was unresponsive - had to press the button multiple times."

Pros: "Movie Selection was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized mess. Different groups in lines and no clear announcement. Food was plastic, even in Business, to the point that I just stopped and snacked on breakfast bars. Crew was uninspired, at best. Lots of shoulder shrugging during any discussion on issues. One even complained about the flight length (we were not delayed). Landed and waited for 10 minutes for jetway to a bus then a 10 minute ride to customs. Good thing they are a near monopoly."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"

Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."

Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."
