Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Pros: "Direct flight"

Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"

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

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."

Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Second legs entertainment system was brilliant."
Cons: "To offer only one meal on a 7 hr flight seemed quite stingy, although the quality was very good."

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The plane was nice. Boarding process was quick. Food and entertainment were great."

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "Everything is perfect."

Cons: "I didn't like having to pay AN EXTRA $250 FOR A BAG!!! I will never recommend this site to my worst enemy"

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Pros: "Treated superbly!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Pros: "Like everything"

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."

Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."
