Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."

Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"

Pros: "The crew was really good, even the food was nice"
Cons: "I think the economy class seating could be better & even the ticket prices could be reduced a bit"

Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"

Pros: "Seat was okay, even when multiple exit row seats were available they would not give it to passengers as they had 500 Dirhams charge on them. Qatar had no such policy when I travelled there two weeks ago they happily let us use the exit row when no one was seated there"
Cons: "Seat was okay, even when multiple exit row seats were available they would not give it to passengers as they had 500 Dirhams charge on them. Qatar had no such policy when I travelled there two weeks ago they happily let us use the exit row when no one was seated there"

Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."

Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"

Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"

Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"

Pros: "some new movies"

Pros: "Nothing. Bad crew."
Cons: "No option for vegetarian food on the menu. I had booked vegetarian meal option when I booked tickets, but by the time they got to my seat, I was told there is no more veggie meal left.. it happened with both dinner and breakfast. I asked the flight attendant to substitute some fruits for the egg, so that I can eat something. They said at 30000 feet altitude, the options were limited. I told him, so are my options limited, and running out of veggie food is not my problem, when I had booked veggie meal at 30000 feet and a flight duration of 16 hours. The attitude of one flight attendant "Ahmed" was horrible. He was never helpful, mean to passengers and would not offer any solution to any problem... I was travelling with an infant, and he refused to fill a bottle of water to prepare milk, and said that I had to wait until they finished their ongoing service.."

Pros: "Overall experiance."

Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."

Pros: "Everything!!!!!"

Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard.

Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."

Pros: "comfortable"

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

Pros: "So so"
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Cons: "The service i received from airfare.com and Kayak."

Pros: "the best all"
Cons: "the best in all"

Cons: "The changes of the airplane"

Cons: "Poor entertainment systems Plane too cold Only 1 meal Ran out of gin for the second flight in a row"

Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"

Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"

Pros: "Crew did a great job!!"
Cons: "Due to the age of the plane there was no outlet to plug in your phone."

Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"

Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"

Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"

Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."

Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Good amount of legroom, no issues with boarding etc. Food was fine and lots of snacks available if you knew where to look for them."
Cons: "Not the friendliest crew. Large film selection but not the best choice of new releases. Quite action focused."

Pros: "VERY GOOD"

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "The services in general."
Cons: "Not of anything that I saw."

Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They were awful"

Pros: "Good service and refreshments all the way from excellent crew"
Cons: "Old jumbo has poor screen and very limited entertainment compared with modern planes"

Pros: "Since online check-in did not work, my daughter and I were a little nervous that we had not been able to reserve seats together. Imagine our worry when we were told at the airport that we did not have seats at all! However, the BA agent calmly worked to get us seats .... and my daughter and I enjoyed business class for the first time in our lives! What an experience! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing -- it was fantastic!"

Pros: "The service was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are too cramped. There is not enough room on such a long flight. Some seats have a box under the seat in front of them, like mine (48K) and therefore no room for my bag or feet."

Pros: "My husband left his wallet on the plane and everybody was extremely helpful...we were able to get it back intact thanks to all of their wonderful Dallas staff!!!"

Pros: "Nicer and cleaner airplane, food was above average and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, stewardess hit me with the food cart while I was seated and didn't apologiza and looked at me in a very rude manner."

Cons: "Landing was rough. Very rough."

Pros: "When the flight was delayed and I missed my connection, the crew had a new ticket for me by the time we landed."

Cons: "2 hr delay in Paris very poor choice of movies"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The entire trip"

Pros: "Short jump to Dallas"
Cons: "Didn't even offer or apologize for no drink service. Prefer Southwest-excellent customer service. Airport check in was terrible. Was placed in 3 different lines before the computer checked us through. Worst I have EVER experienced."

Pros: "direct route to madrid"
Cons: "low quality entertaining system low quality meals"

Pros: "Everything about the trip was marvelous. Friendly employees, good seating, terrific food,and lots of great movies. From booking to ticket retrieval to transportation to arrival all was done wonderfullyrics and with no problem. Thank you for a trip well done!"
Cons: "Not a thing..."

Pros: "Travelling buisnes means a lot to me."

Pros: "Location in the aircraft"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Not enough newer movies for a 10+ hour flight. I am not a movie-buff but only managed to find 3 movies I had not seen before. Monitor for video was hazy and hard to see the movies with the overhead lights on the whole flight. Flight attendants for my area (business class upstairs) did not seem to want to be there, did the bare minimum, felt like the attendants you usually get on any airlines US domestic flights. Yes, daytime flight, but did the lights have to be on the whole flight? Had 6-8 kids in 10-15 year range that were running around the whole flight, maybe if the lights had been at least dimmed they could have settled down so the other travelers who would have liked to sleep could... Food servings were smaller than usual, but since it was also unusually uninspired and tasteless I guess that was ok. Plane was dirty (visibly so on, f.ex. the sides of seats, traytable, and bathroom) and it was not just from the ongoing journey but from previous flights."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Cramped"

Cons: "Plane was old and probably a "spare lease" ans as such the seat quality was horrendous... lumpy, faulty (did not recline)"

Pros: "On Time"
