Good experience

Everything fine

Cons: "Qatar airways changed the flight time which made the layover 8 hours instead of 3 hours. For the inconvenient it was caused Qatar airways made no effort to compensate."
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Pros: "the crew was amazing"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Food was okay, seats were less so. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Pros: "The supervisor has a good customer care and all the crew are so wonderful. I was so pleased. Thank you."
Pros: "Everything! It just awesome"
Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Pros: "Houston check in counters need to be added."
Cons: "Doha airport indian staff is rude to many passengers during their hand carry check. Too little space there. No organization."
Cons: "TOOO long."
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "NA"

Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "THE SEATS I REQUESTED DURING BOOKING DID NOT TRANSFER OVER TO QATAR AIRWAYS."
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"

Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet.

Departure times were late

Emirates canceled the booking on me without any explanation. There was no reason given and no option to rebook. Ended up rebooking on a different airline for double the original price that was locked with Emirates. Even though the refund was processed reasonably expeditiously, this experience is unacceptable.

Pros: "excellent crew, helped me through my nerves about flying"
Cons: "would have loved to sit upstairs in the bar area."
Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seats comfortable"
Pros: "Some of the crew were friendly, certainly not all of them."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, food was subpar. Paid extra for a “twin” seat and after this experience I think passengers should be paid extra to sit here."
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Check-in at the gate was opened only 40 mins before the flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "the place of my seat on the plane."
Cons: "The food, seat, space, & baby Control"
Pros: "Food was phenomenal. Unbelievably good."

Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Emirates could do better!"
Cons: "Be on time. Flight delay was ~3hrs. Flight operated by Fly Dubai and eve though my ticket was with Emirates got charged for coffee and water!!!"

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worst flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."

EK 202 – delayed by 24 hours Issue:FROM 3 HOURS INFLIGHT SITTING, RETURNED LUGGAGE, HOTEL FOR 4 HOURS, 12 HOURS OF WAIT TIME ON AIRPORT DOING NOTHING EK 538 – delayed by 6 hours Issue:FROM 3 HOURS INFLIGHT SITTING, 6 hours delay. I booked the flight with Emirates because of their better service even though Price doesn’t matter, but I didn’t expect this bad. No rest from Last 48 hours due to HORRIBLE experience with emirates and Flight delayed. I am surely looking for some king of refund in the ticket since it was really bad experience.

Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I've always liked Emirates and the comfort level is very high. Also, the entertainment has always been excellent."

Pros: "Variety and choice of media entertainment was superb. Enjoyed the food and service."
