Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "All services are simply best."
Cons: "If you can add more Indian food, that will be better."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
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 had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Cons: "Staff don’t smile! I ask for hot towel the crew didn’t give me any!"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
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: "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: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Very impressed. Will definitely fly with them more often in the future. A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so soecific."
Cons: "A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so specific."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
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."
Pros: "Overall very good"
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"
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: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."

Pros: "Excellent service, as expected."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour, was not communicated properly at the airport."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."

Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."
Pros: "Food, movie/entertainment options, amenities."
Cons: "Lots of announcements that would interrupt video programs. I think they did the announcements in at least 3 languages, sometimes 4 (Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, English). It became a bit much at times."
Pros: "The A380 is a beautiful aircraft. Smooth and quiet. Great movie choices. Crew friendly and mostly efficient. Great value for money!"
Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"

We left in time, arrived on time but my luggages did not! I just got them the next day.

Pros: "Flight was on time, baggage was quick, got out of airport and on my way."
Cons: "Deboarding out on the taxi way in Doha, then busing us to the terminal, took a long time, we were dropped in front and had to go through security again, should have been an easy connection but ended up rushing. status boards in Doha are not that clear, change a lot"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."
Cons: "The food. The vegetarian meals were both noodles. And the meals were not very healthy. Too high calorie. I couldn’t figure out how to customize my meals On the Qatar app"

Pros: "Great"
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"
Cons: "everything. see what i mentioned above. i will not book through your company again"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Wish there were a bit more movie selections but only because it was such a long flight"
Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Cons: "There was not enough tome to catch my connecting flight and I had to stay in the airport an additional 6 hours and had to stay the night in the hotel and then get to Portland on another airline 21 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Good food, overall good service"
Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The food sucked."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Bathrooms"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Originally I was assigned a wonderful seat but then I was put in the back by window it was very cramped and noisy. The flight stuff was mediocre and the food was not that good either. Big difference from the flight over"

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "Over all great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable and the staff are friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "As always the space"
Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "Nothing wrong every thing is good"
Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "baggage process could have been better, i was made to remove stuff just because was 1-2 lbs overweight in my baggage. Never had this issue with other airlines (especially when its only matter of 1-2 lbs.)"
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
