Read more about Emirates

Manchester airport facilities for special assistance was nothing short of disgraceful. Not an Emirates issue but they should be made aware.

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"
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"
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
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!"
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "Service level of cabin crew and ICE."
Cons: "The long wait to exit from the aircraft and to pick up my baggages from the carousel at Mcr airport. The main meal chicken curry & rice was a disappointment as the curry appeared slimy and starchy. It didn’t come anywhere near the delicious meal on flight from Mcr to Dubai on 12/1/19 chicken with pilaf rice!"

Staff was helpful. Flight was on time. Overall excellent experience. Thank you will fly again.

BLR boarding is total pathetic. Should not fly Qatar from Bengaluru. Check in staff is too rude there

Very tight seating. Crew seemed too dis interested and too slow to remove main meal trays.

Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
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."
Cons: "Tbilisi-Doha delayed due to no A/C. Inadequate notices. Children yelling behind me, no action taken. Doha-BKK worse. Another 1 1/2 hr delay. Woman I’ll eventually taken off. Flight deck with inadequate notices. Then searched for woman’s overhead luggage. Others with delays elsewhere. Never again."
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: "The crews are very friendly and seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "There nothing could have been better cause everything is perfect"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Hyderabad to Doha and they did not allow us to board the flight as connecting flight from Doha to Dallas would have been left. They did not have seats for next day , the earliest we could go was 2 days later. They did not apologize or compensate for delay."
Pros: "It was a normal flight with any extra confortable feature."
Cons: "Not delay Treatment in the boarding Gate was ride, asking for visa despite I dont need it."
Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"
Pros: "The crew was polite and continuously offering drinks, headphones and food/snacks. Kept us comfortable and happy during the flight!"
Cons: "I never made it on the flight. It was over booked, they switched me over... I'm still at the airport, missing two days of my vacation. Flights have been delayed from SFO, causing me to miss so many of the connecting flights..."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The flight staff was just okay - they could have been friendlier. The seat cushions seemed old - they were comfortable enough for sitting but not comfortable to sleep."
Cons: "1.5 hour delay departing put a slight damper on this flight but otherwise it was fine."
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Pros: "The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful. Entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "The leg room or seat closeness."
Pros: "Finally, they came to their senses. When you change planes, you already have been checked once for security, so there is no more need (and never was¨) for another secutiry check. With just one hour to switch planes, this is great relief."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

It's good but not enough entertaining you have to have your iPad

Paid extra for more leg room but the aircraft was changed and they gave me the last seats in the back with no room to even recline backwards.

Pros: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."
Cons: "Transiting at Manchester between our Frankfurt to SFO flights was dreadful. They made us go through security and the inspectors were so incompetent they caused a huge back-up. Took an hour to get through. Avoid Manchester. Then they lost my luggage...still missing after a week."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Cons: "40 minute delay in departure due to late arrival of incoming aircraft."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
