Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"

Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Cons: "None."

Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."

Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"

Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."

Cons: "The crew members is not very detail oriented. Almost forgot to give our whole row of people without dinner. Don't they remember where they left off sheesh. I work at a hotel before and customer service all my life, I don't think I will make that mistake."

Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding with Nigerians is always difficult"

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seats had enough legroom. Good was second to none"

Pros: "Overall good."

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Cons: "Airport Staff behaviour in Pakistan"

Pros: "At least inform me that bag is left behind so i wont walk around around baggaage belt for hours at the destination it happend both sides thanks"
Cons: "Waiting inconvenience"

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Lovely staff....nice food have had worse. Found the seats very comfy as an average size person.Would fly with Emirates again thanks guys x"

Pros: "Liked The service and the spacious airplanes"
Cons: "No choice left for dinner and would have loved a snack"

Pros: "Plenty of space"

Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "Air vents over seat, excelent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade."

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"

Pros: "The stewardess were friendly enough. When the cabin got chilly I received another blanket. The complimentary beverages was nice. No chips though. The individual tv screen was a plus."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable. I couldn’t recline it back all the way to sleep. I was very dry and did not realize that there was water in the galley that I could have helped myself to. Not enough leg room for tall people like me without having to purchase it."

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Crew made the flight a pleasant time dispute the 13 hours in the air. Good service, Good food and reasonably comfortable accommodations."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs some updating - kept freezing and needed to rebooted to continue watching. Wouldn't normally care but with all that time captured in air you need it to work."

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

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"

Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."

Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it. I needed to ask more than three times to get water, again and again, I can't understand this behaviour at all. They treat you extremely bad unless you fly business with them. I felt uncomfortable and didn't like this behaviour at all."

Pros: "customercare was good. Thank you."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."

Cons: "It does not fly to all the destinations I travel to."

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."

Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "The movies are censored... there is no point in offering R rated films if you can't watch them as the director intended."

Cons: "Crew were very rude. Didn't stop people from being in aisles when safety say belt sign was on. Access to a bathroom was limited. Dropped food on my head. Were not available at first when another passenger took my seat. Held us in the back of the plane 20minutes after business class departed."

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."
