Fly Dubai is average but that’s reflective of the price but the flight from RUH to DXB every Thursday afternoon is ALWAYS delayed. Try to fly Emirates.

Liked food. Service could have been better. More water trips would have been good.

Excellent

Pros: "Staff"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "You didn’t change my ticket within 24 hours of booking and I have to loose that ticket I didn’t fly back hime"
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: "All"
Cons: "To be cabin in business class"
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Some of the crew were neglecting, the food was bad and the boarding system was strange, as people in first class and economy were meshed together (Amman - Dubai)"
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Seats were goooood and comfy Leg room was good"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "Service on the plan was excellent. Food was delicious"
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I find the A380 in the Emirates configuration to be more comfortable than other planes/configs."
Cons: "Wish we had a few more choices like carnatic music and an expanded list of movies."
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."
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"
Pros: "Great video console for a short 1.5 hour flight to Yangon"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was fantastic. Just a really nice quick flight."
Pros: "I liked how I didn't get jet lagged"
Cons: "Half the food was good half was just okay"
Pros: "Good space and entertainment. Crew was excellent. Really enjoyed it."
Cons: "Food. It’s plane food wasn’t impressed."
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"
Pros: "Emirates staff gone out of way to accomodate my seat. Even all the counters were closed. Excellent passenger service."
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next 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: "Evverything"
Cons: "That the plane can't do 2,000 mph and have us there in 1/4 the time :-)"
Pros: "Boarding process followed at LHR #3 was well done and organized, made good use of passenger's time. Desk personnel at LHR #3 was professional, as was crew on aircraft into Dubai."
Cons: "No breakfast (had sticker on seat to wake up if needed) and ended up awake whole flight. Flight for LHR to Dubai did not provide breakfast although 1950 -> 0550 red-eye flight"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "Trip was shorter by at least one hour than projected."
Cons: "Very dissapointed with return flight. It was like a different airline experience than first leg of trip to Athens"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Need Indian tea"
Pros: "The seats were quite spacious and comfortable. The crew was very friendly and helpful. They actually seemed genuinely happy to be of assistance (a rarity, especially on 9 hour flights!)."
Cons: "Boarding was a fair disaster. No structure or communication about lines. Unclear who was boarding and when. Like a slow-moving stampede. The food was actually very yummy. I just prefer fresh food to be included. Like fruit. Didn't use any entertainment."
Pros: "Everything i mean whats there not to like ?"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "My experience at the check in kiosk was very positive. Very friendly and polite employees."
Pros: "Same comments as above."
Cons: "No toilets in departure lounge! Delay of 30 minutes sitting with hardly any oxygen in cabin thought I was going to pass out. My last flight with Emirates."
Pros: "I felt unwell towards the end of the flight. The cabin crew could not have been nicer. Although they were busy they all found time to come and check on me, including the purser. Water and other drinks were given out regularly. They even provided afternoon tea with scones and cream!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Checkin process with baggage limit was so strict that they even won't let 400 gms extra. also the rep in Chennai airport does not even know that I could carry 2 pieces for carry on (laptop & carry on baggage)"
Pros: "Dubai was fun."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. Not very heathy. More fruit and veg please. I don't like that the flight attendants close the curtain for first class disembarking. Seemed pretty childish and snobby."
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
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"

Quick Flight back to Glasgow.

Cons: "Pre boarding at the gate was slightly chaotic"

Cons: "2 hours delayed, even tea has to be paid"
Pros: "It was overall officient, basically on time and comfortable"
Cons: "Getting off the ground took quite a while even though we arrived basically on time"
Pros: "My last answer should have mentioned that the airline I referred to was Loganair not British Airways. Coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit at no charge"
Pros: "Crew were great and we left and arrived slightly early which was nice"
Cons: "The in flight magazines and safety cards were ripped and damaged. Not a good look for the flag carrier"
Pros: "quick boardling, good flight, enough personal space in business class"
Cons: "I do wish passengers would sit until the seatbelt signs are off and not all jump up and open the over heard bins and drop things"
Pros: "Crew cheerful"
Cons: "Beyond their control. Flight delayed 50 mins"
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Good service and crew."
Cons: "Seats were very very narrow."
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "there was a mechanical error which kept us on board the plane for 20 minute increments for nearly 3 hours until they had us switch planes"
Pros: "Boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Typical BA efficiency."
Cons: "What’s the difference between BA and EasyJet?"
Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Cons: "We where delayed for just over an hour"
Cons: "Too hot, meant to arrive 5 mins early but ended up 15 mins late as we sat on the runway for about half an hour without air conditioning."
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Good flight. Friendly crew members. We checked our carry on because the flight was full and the attendants said that they wouldn’t have room for all the bags. Checking the bags was very easy and we got to board the plane first."
Pros: "Professional crew, comfortable seats with adequate legroom"
Cons: "No beverage without paying, extra bag fee, no jetway at Heathrow (bus to plane)"
Pros: "Very good aircraft!"
Pros: "All BA staff were professional, pleasant and helpful. My seat had more leg room than I was expecting (after a flight Seattle to Heathrow where my knees were jammed against the seat ahead of me."
Cons: "I was frustrated that I had to pay for either a cup of coffee or water. Since all healthcare providers recommend that one must drink water on a flight to stay hydrated and healthy, a complimentary bottle of water would have supported healthy travel. Due to a short layover in Heathrow, I had no time to fill my own water bottle."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Service was poor, flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Full flight, but still excellent courteous service from all members of staff."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Pros: "Flight as always great"
Cons: "Delay made me miss two meetings"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"
Cons: "Price & food not so good."
Cons: "It would be nice to have a free juice or soft drink on this flight. They only offer free water, and then you have to ask for it."
Cons: "Bag didn't make it, and then the system to get it returned doesn't work as it should."
Cons: "I made the mistake of buying a no checked baggage ticket- they charged me more to check my bag than it cost me for the ticket (65 British pounds). How do they get away with this? Many passengers had carry-ons that probably weighed as much as my luggage, yet I have to pay a huge fee. Plus, extra charge to choose a seat, and not even a glass of water on the flight. Last time I choose to fly British Airlines."
Pros: "The BA agent after immigration did a wonderful job getting us on the next flight, which saved us from losing our entire vacation."
Cons: "The luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at which point we only managed to still get our rental car due to an extremely helpful Europcar agent. Otherwise, we would have been stranded at Glasgow airport overnight and would have lost our hotel reservation."
Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "British Airways carrier American Airlines was not clearly notified on tickets/boarding passes/itineraries nor was there any communication between the carriers, so when I checked into British Airways I got no help expediting my check in at American. It was confusing and no one was helpful and instead flip. At American every interaction, whether about connecting flight boarding passes, my five and half hour delay or seating left me feeling unimportant and disrespected. I will never use either airline again nor Kayak"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As like always late"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Pros: "Nothing, felt like I was back in the 80s"
Cons: "Old plane, had no port for usb cables, no tv on the back of each seat, no wifi. Flight from Philadelphia 5 days prior had it all."
Cons: "Not really friendly. Nothing to drink. My chair was broken so I couldn't really lean back."
Pros: "After a slight delay, the crew got everyone on board quickly, and we got off, making up some of the time we had lost. A real "greased landing" by the pilot, (I didn't know we were down till he hit the brakes)."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing complimentary, no screens on exit row seats"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "on time.."
Cons: "very busy no free tea coffee."
