Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."

Cons: "I had a business class ticket, when I wanted to order the food they said it is finished! and that was the only vegetarian meal in the menu."

Pros: "The Seat is good."
Cons: "The check in counter welcoming should be better in Barcelona"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"

Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."

Pros: "I am a very tall man, 205cm, and I am always worried when I travel that I would not get the first raw or emergency seat. But Emirates always pays attention to my problem. And the economy class seats on Emirates have more leg rooms than on other airlines."
Cons: "I could not use the onboard wifi on the flight from Jakarta to Dubai (Boeing 777 300er) and from Dubai to Amsterdam (Airbus A380)."

Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."

Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights. Same for cabin luggage and is enforced randomly. Some economy passers were allowed two pieces, others were forced to check in cabiuggahe at $200."

Cons: "Best flight ever. Everything was perfect . Best crew ,"

Pros: ":("
Cons: "Don’t expect any assistance with the change of a passenger name - you will be asked to buy a new ticket without reimbursement for the mistake that is by any stretch of imagination only a duplicate bookings. What will happen is that either the travel company or the airline simply will blame you."

Pros: "Efficient and very friendly cabin staff. Captain and team kept us informed of flight progression at reasonable intervals."
Cons: "Some slight delay in clearing up some catering equipment."

Pros: "Emirates has great programming and the TV screens are the best I've experienced among airlines. LOTS of choices, great sound, screens not to dark like many on US-based carriers and GREAT Headphones."
Cons: "Restrooms, even before flight took off, smelled of urine like they had not been cleaned. Lines to use them were very long. Leg room SUCKED (and I am not a big person).....maybe 30-31 inches, but my knees were banging up against the seat in front of me!!! I booked this ticket thinking that economy would have more room than US-based carriers and it did not. It did not help to have a very large man spilling over into my seat from the middle seat (although he was very nice....still resent paying for a seat I don't have full "bandwidth" for),"

Pros: "Excellent all round.a"

Cons: "The food was appalling and crew service very ordinary much inferior to Qantas. The seats are also uncomfortable"

Pros: "Amenities - ear plugs and basic things are good. Dint see this in other flights till now in economy. Good movies collection."
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"

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: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."

Pros: "It was my first time flying again in ten years and my first time with emirates. I was expecting excellent standards and I´m very pleased to say I was not disappointed!"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Pros: "Emirates was top in service, organization, personnel. Planes were clean, staff attentive and personable and wanting to help. Been a long time since service this good and on such long flights. Cabin personnel of multiple nationalities and languages only added to the flight. They even returned my phone mistakenly left on board. Would recommend them to all."
Cons: "Entertainment system on smaller planes not as responsive as newer models. They need to improve web info to share layover process for hotel vouchers and visa."

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"

Cons: "i had bought $150 worth goods in NY dutyfree, so it wasnt chked in. But Emirates delayed the 1st flight by 2 hpurs, which caused me to miss my 2nd connecting flight at Dubai. And bvos of that, Emirates staff didnt allow me to chkin my dutyfree stuff which they threw away.. i want to be compensated for that."

Pros: "Service, food, beverages and entertainment are good with Emirates. Also boarding procedures are good."
Cons: "Seats in Emirates keep getting smaller"

Pros: "Smooth ride, decent food, good entertainment."
Cons: "Long periods without in cabin service, people had to repeatedly ask for water or get up to get water. Boarding Gates were totally secluded from the shops and restaurants of Dubai airport."

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."

Cons: "I requested the waiter(Asian) to serve me a non-egg breakfast if there were any remaining. He curtly told me that if I had not pre-booked the non-egg breakfast he could not provide me. Few minutes later I made the same request to another waitress and she quickly provided me the non-egg breakfast."

Pros: "Overall very good"

Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."

Pros: "Emirates is always the best."
Cons: "On longer flights, they always take your blanket 30 min before you land. I am very cold and tired and cranky at the end of a long flight. I understand they do this to reduce the work they need to do before the next flight, but it still makes me sad."

Pros: "This was our first time flying Emirates and it will not be our last. The staff, service and experience has been very pleasant."

Pros: "I was surprised to receive a pair of socks, sleeping eye cover and toothbrush/toothpaste. Great courtesy and attention to detail by the flight crew."

Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The boarding was chaotic. The public address at the gate was not clear and everyone seemed to line up randomly."

Pros: "In my way to Dubai, I asked the gentleman not to put me in the middle, when I get in found myself in a middle row middle seat. Food choices chicken, steak, and stuffed zucchini all are nasty. Also, I was told that business class luggage comes out first that wasn't true on both leg of the trip. Also, I wasn't told that I have a lounge to hang out until the boarding time. In my way back it was same exact food menu service is mediocre at best very demanding flight attendants. Also the luggage came out towards the end . I told my friend I travelled with that this would be my last time to use Emirates airline"
Cons: "The flight being on time"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Had a few hours sleep also. Very happy."

Cons: "It seems to me that the flights to India are a little more cramped than the ones from the West to Dubai."

Cons: "The lack of attention by the crew was unexpected,"

Cons: "I was not allowed onto this flight (Dubai to Hong Kong) because my previous flight (London to Dubai) was a little late, but I made it to the gate before it was closed. My fellow passengers from my flight were also not allowed onto the plane, and while we were arguing (including being told that the plane was full) other passengers from an even later flight were allowed on board! Instead I had to wait many hours in the terminal (because apparently there were no hotel rooms available!?) to get a flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (!!!?) where I could get a Cathay flight to Hong Kong. This meant I arrived 14 hours later than scheduled. Absolutely abysmal service, with no sympathy and no responsibility from any employees."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Solid service."

Pros: "Boarding went smooth. Amazingly courteous staff. Great attention all during the flight. Great entertainment options with all kinds of information availability."
Cons: "Customs forms into NY were unnecessary. Everything else that I can think of was out of Emirate's control."

Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"

Pros: "I liked the service, food and the crews behavior"
Cons: "The only thing that I didn't like was I was told in the office that you will get free hotel room unfortunately when I arrived to Dubai they told me that I'm not in the system and you have to pay"

Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."

Pros: "Love it and I had a middle seat !!!!"
Cons: "The food was good v and excellent service and entertainment"

Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse. No kit was given which includes brush, paste, eye covering band. Last time I travelled from Boston to Dubai the food was completely frozen and now this!"

Pros: "Entertainment great."
Cons: "Scratch on screen. WiFi stopped intermittently and too early at end of trip. When disconnected, the 30 minute free allocation kept counting down to zero minutes."

Cons: "Occasionally, stewardess would hit me while walking through the aisles. It became extremely annoying."
