Pros: "very good as expected"

Pros: "The food and entertainment on board was the best I’ve ever experienced on a flight."
Cons: "The headset didn’t work properly so had to listen to music and movies through half the earphones."

Pros: "Traveling alone with a 1 year old the crew was fantastic. They gave me better seats with empty seats next to me. Helped entertain little one regularly on their own accord. Very friendly and helpful. Made a long exhausting more than trip doable"
Cons: "I didn’t like the airport in Dubai. Cleaners locked all the disabled toilets. I walked to 3 of them. Very difficult to use normal toilet and having to leave your baby & carry on outside when traveling alone!"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "hh"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"

Pros: "Ice entertainment is great"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"

Cons: "Boarding announcements weren’t clear and boarding was not separated by zone."

Cons: "The seats in business are flat but at an angle; this actuallty makes quite a difference for comfort."

Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."

Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Pros: "Excellence !!!"

Pros: "Good flight and easy transfer."

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "1- Crew seemed less professional than European countries destinations ( An Egyptian crew gave me wrong direction about my seat at the entrance of the plane ) 2- Wifi service was not working, though they said the plane is equipped with WIFI ( i checked with the cabin crew, she said maybe the area..however throughout all the travel flight, there was no WIFI )"

Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."

Pros: "I loved the bigger screens and the fact that I could watch movies from the monument I boarded and did not have to wait until take off! I also loved the use of real cutlery in economy. The flight was fantastic. The toilets in economy are spacious too."
Cons: "The leg room could be a wee bit better. Then again, I was in economy."

Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"

Pros: "Food nd entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"

Pros: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance"
Cons: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance. An extremely poor show my emirates who call themselves a premier airline and this was a POOR SHOW!"

Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"

Pros: "Great entertainment. Crew was calm and professional."
Cons: "Food was ok, but I've had a lot better on Emirates. Low carb options would make it amazing."

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."

Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"

Pros: "Everything was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flights"

Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"

Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."

Cons: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"

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: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "food needs imporvement in EK in general"

Pros: "Nothing good to mention"
Cons: "Check in counter staff are more aggressive than their passenger. Dealing with the passenger/customer with respect and in a polite manner must be applied."

Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

Cons: "I didn't get food Jain veg. Please include it in your menue"

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."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Excellent"

Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."

Pros: "Assistance with moving through airport due to a disability"

Pros: "The crews were very polite and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were excellent, but the storage and configuration below the Airbus equivalents."

Cons: "Very good airlines"

Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"

Pros: "Detail and attention to peoples specific needs. Service prior to boarding and during were excellent"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Upon confirming my flight I had received a middle seat. When I got to Sydney I was able to talk a host at the gate to see if she can move to an aisle seat. She did and it was at the front of the row with plenty of leg room. I couldn’t have asked for a better flight home."
Cons: "The mess other passengers made. Have some respect for yourself and the stewardess. I could only imagine the home some of these people Live in."

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Pros: "That I didn’t have to get up so early."
Cons: "Didn’t like coming via Dubai - parents have no control of their children. Tearing my hair out."

Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."

Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"

Pros: "All the services"

Cons: "Flight attendants and staff were extremely rude and condescending"

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The way your seats reclined: back/head your typical recline but add your seats bottom sliding forward. Best sleep I have ever had while in International economy. Sadly our plane to Australia from Los Angeles did not have the same seats. Entertainment selection excellent ! Great line up of brand new and older movies. I was able to use my noise cancelling headphones in your jack which was a big plus."
Cons: "Paying an extra $30-35 just to choose a seat. Enjoyed sitting in the back of the plane however meal selection was terrible as the front of the plane always fed first so by the one it was our turn there was only one option - terrible “southern chicken” Or the Greek Inlet Which was just ok."

Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and easy. Food and service on board was excellent. No hassle with baggage or hand luggage. Comfortable and able to use my One World Status and earn miles."

Pros: "Good food on the plane; friendly staff."
Cons: "Horrible accomodations; I've never been in a flight this tight before. It was miserable the whole way. Even Southwest is roomier. I should have taken an American carrier. Space is the number one priority on a flight across the Pacific, and Qantas really doesn't understand that. I've taken Delta, American, and United across both ponds. Stick with them! After all, I can make my own food."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Upper deck and lower deck economy seats don’t have the same amenities on the A380-800 plane"

Pros: "Quick boarding process, good food, and good entertainment selection"
Cons: "My headphone didn't work properly. The left ea side didn't have any sounds and the right side sometimes scrambles."

Pros: "Checking in and boarding was good and reasonably fast. Room available for everyone's hand luggage. Toilets were reasonable. Food in economy was ok."
Cons: "No hot USB port in economy. Inflight information system is old and screen resolution and contrast is not so good. Best to use own headphones."

Pros: "Best entertainment on the market, movies and music for all customers not only teenagers and families"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."

Pros: "Nice crew. Nice food. Nice movies. Smooth ride"

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: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways! I tried to change my dates after I bought it and dealing with Flight network -where i bought it from - was a nightmare!! I wouldnt recomment this at all."

Pros: "First Lounge is good."
Cons: "Seats are old, lumpy and don't work half the time."

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: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."

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."

Pros: "Great exportable the staff was very helpful and friendly I will fly again"

Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Flight attendants were the best. Everything about the flight was perfect. Also, I didn't even realize we had landed it was such a smooth landing."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."

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: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Crew are professional and food is good quality!"
Cons: "The cabin is way too old and out of date, especially considering alternative business class options. Time for an update Wantas before it hits your bottom line (if it hasn't already)."

Pros: "I cannot thank the Qantas staff enough for our recent, very smooth trip from Melbourne to Dubai. I was a little worried about the 14 hour trip since I am 7 months pregnant and wanted to be sure I had enough room to move about as needed. Both the desk and plane staff arranged for my husband and myself to have 4 seats to ourselves (luckily, it wasn't a full flight!) which allowed me to rest and put my feet up (literally!) through our long journey. They also checked on us frequently to make sure we were comfortable throughout. Thanks so much Qantas, we will definitely be traveling with you again with our little one in tow!"

Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."

Pros: "I was fortunate to a e a points upgrade to 1st Class Like a dream"

Pros: "The staff where excellent as was the full process from getting to the airport to disembarking. Would like to fly with them again"
Cons: "We have an autistic child and to get the seats that are most suitable for us proved very difficult. We got there in the end but basically they have said that that if we want to get our seats before check in opens we need the pay. We have never had to do this before and I was very shocked and surprised. They eventually relented and resolved the issue however the damage was already done. For a company that is associated with the local autism society I was very disappointed that they don't recognise it for the challenge that it can be."

Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Cons: "I ordered gluten free food and it was really bad. 1 fresh apple in the 24 hour flight. For some reason, the people who design this food think that just because a person is gluten free, you can give them the worst gluten free bread! Just leave out the bread and make the food a bit more fresh and interesting."

Pros: "Crew were amazing!"

Cons: "poor legroom in my seat - couldn't stretch my legs at all"
