Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Same again. A good flight and well fed."
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
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"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
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"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."
Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Cons: "Crew were rude, kept knocking customers. no vegan meal No drinks offered for majority of flight poor quality entertainment, screen didn't work properly."
Pros: "Everything!!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
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. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"
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."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"
Cons: "very poor food and seating"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."
Pros: "La tripulación excelente y nos dieron un obsequio"
Pros: "Qatar is the BEST First Class airline in the world."
Cons: "Everything was amazing!"
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Great service in economy."
Pros: "Stuff is Fantastic, food is delicious, a lot of leg room, got to love Qatar Airways. No wonder they’re number one."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"
Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."
Pros: "Wonderful crew. Pretty nice and clean plane, I wish the normal distances between chairs were a bit bigger. My knees hurt. Flight was very smooth, landing seamless."
Cons: "Boarding in jfk is always a nightmare, and this was not any better. Huge crowds blocking the hallways, boarding started 15 minutes late, departed late - therefore arrived late and we missed the connection to Kiev, had to spend 8 hours in Doha."
Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs"
Pros: "Excellent airport; always on time; good meals; excellent entertainment"
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Cons: "Transit time was too close with my connection"
Pros: "Flight was on time ."
Cons: "The seating was not organized when people needed to bored. It was busy and people where rushing to get in the plane ."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple, food was ok."
Cons: "What a terrible flight. There was absolutely no leg room. I'm 180cm but I imagine Qatar airlines have taller passengers. I understand they are trying to squeeze as much money out of their flights as possible but it was to the point of such severe discomfort that my right knee still hurts half a week later. The reason that it hurts so much is that there was a post through the right half of the leg room under my seat, which was already super limited to begin with. DO NOT GET A WINDOW SEAT, WHATEVER YOU DO. It was a 7 hour flight and I was SO MUCH PAIN. Horrific. The flight staff was rude. I will never fly Qatar again under ANY circumstances. I would rather travel months by boat, or even walk for years on end then go through that 7 hour experience. Qatar's cheapness lost them a customer!"
Cons: "Chicken sandwich was not good"
Pros: "No problems at all!"
Cons: "There were no headphones and again with the remote Oryx screen that is just way too complicated and freezes like crazy."
Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."
Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent food and service.Very comfortable flight.Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in staff not so friendly but process was OK"
Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."
Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"
Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Pros: "See previous"
Cons: "See previous"
Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"
Cons: "Planes are a little small for a fairly long haul business service. Nice but small - so basic amenities."
Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"
Pros: "The way flying was meant to be."
Cons: "Sears in Boeing 777-300 are amaño and marroquí, Edith feedback space and unconfortable, worse if being sittedbin the Baco of the aircraft rows 40 yo 54"
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The aircraft looks a little old."
Pros: "You guys are blessed and best of all of time"
Cons: "I didn't hate nothing it was the best"
Pros: "Very friendly and willing crew."
Cons: "Sound through headphones could be better. Hope to have free onboard internet one day!!"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "I hated it"
Cons: "I am a non veg guy and during serving the foood they said ...they don't have Non veg meal ..I have to eat Veg only ..what the hell is this .. For water also ..I had to ask 3 times then they gave me when I request fourth time...it was terribly bad experience and I hated this trip."
Pros: "This was the best coach experience I've ever had. Food was great, tv screens were large, little bags with earplugs, slippers... were provided. Other airlines could take some pointers on how to treat passengers on long, overseas flights."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"
Pros: "Comfortable plane Good food Friendly service"
Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Insufficient leg room."
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Kind cabin crew Ontime departure"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Cons: "Not having a jet bridge and having to board a bus to get to the plane."
Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "Foods are not so good, standard. Crews didn't smile. They don't smile why? They don't Greet. Very poor service."
Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"
Pros: "I was nervous to fly Turkish Airlines; however, the crew was professional and the experience was very positive. I felt safe and well cared for."
Cons: "Istanbul connection could have been smoother. The process was not efficient or clear. It worked; and I navigated it, but it could be improved."
Pros: "THE CREW AND THE SPORTS CHANNEL"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to my destination with me. I waited an hour by the luggage carousel until I saw someone that informed me that one of my suitcases did not make it onto the flight. I had to wait until the next day for it to be delivered. While I am glad it was delivered to my residence, I am frustrated for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "No applicable"
Pros: "On time flight, Helpful crew and relaxing journey. Overall an amazing travelling experience from onboarding to collecting luggage."
