Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "The airport did not have air conditioning, which was very annoying given the temperature outside was 30C."
Pros: "Cabin crew friendly and efficient, great service"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Leg room in economy"
Cons: "4am in the morning. I wish it was around 12 or 1am or 7am in the morning."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."
Pros: "On Time good service"
Cons: "Serving alcohol on board"
Cons: "They changed my seats twice and it was near the bathrooms and I hated it. They refuse to give me a better place when I requested. I didn't choose the seats they put me in and the crews couldn't handle the other passengers attitued and actions. I asked for a below but they didn't bring it to me."
Pros: "Qatar airways equipment very good."
Cons: "Gate change confusion unnecessary"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as passport security had reported that I was intoxicated. I was badly injured in the armed forces and have lost my hearing which affects my balance. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy as s personal trainer. But was given seat E. Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too. Totally disgusted with the whole flight and crew when everytime I've used the same company before it was excellent."
Cons: "Food has declined significantly over the past few years"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."
Pros: "I would like to see you distribute toothbrush kits in economy class, even if you do not consider 7-8 hour legs as long haul flights"
Cons: "there were no toothbrush kits given out in economy class"
Pros: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"
Pros: "Easy to check in, outstanding crew!"
Cons: "Old, old, old plane! :("
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: "Amazing crew. Seat upgraded to business class. Superb service and comfort!"
Pros: "Crew were rude and kept ignoring me"
Cons: "Crew member needs to be more friendly and accommodate when things go wrong"

Pros: "Best of the nest"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable"
Cons: "Overall great experience!!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "Ladies worked hard"
Cons: "I now understand how the chicken and live stock must feel in their cages and stalls. Perhaps the CEO and management staff must be made to take the same flights in the same conditions in so called Economy class. So much greed! Hoping for the day, Air travel becomes obsolete."
Pros: "Personalized service"
Cons: "Sound kept going of on movie"
Cons: "Very bad service we press the light no one comes and the food is really bad and my mom we to go get a cup of tea for her headache and the crew member got really mad saying where is your cup we aren’t going to give you a cup where is your cup"

Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."
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: "Very welcoming. Coach made comfortable. Excellent movie selection"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "Some snacks between the food service"
Pros: "Wonderful airline, great movie collection, ended up leaving one of my bags behind in Dubai but they were delivered to my home in one pice"
Cons: "The time between flights was so little and with a big airport, literally had to run from one end to the other"
Pros: "entertainment, legroom"
Cons: "unacceptably atrocious customer service by crew at checkin. i was starting to think i accidentally got a wizzair ticket instead of emirates. shockingly poor manners."
Pros: "Arguably the best service I've ever had on a flight"
Cons: "Had to stop movie 20min prior to landing as I was in emergency exit row"
Cons: "Food. And also seats. We r silver class and should have been assigned better seats."
Pros: "Crew were excellent , very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food was horrible , not much options for vegans"
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Pros: "A380 economy cabin, excellent legroom for a 6"2 bloke like me. Seat was wide enough too. Really good food and a cracking entertainment system. Happily fly them again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional, friendly and attentive. We were also impressed with the amenities -- every passenger received free headphones, drinks, pillow and blanket."
Cons: "The overhead lights did not seem to align with the correct seats."
Pros: "I travel with a lot of airlines but this time Traveling with Emirates airline is completely different such as accommodation transportation everything awesome."
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."
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: "On our onward flight from Orlando to Dubai, the crew made sure the flight was always clean (specially the toilets - they really cleaned them up every 30 mins) Not so much on the same flight returning from Dubai to Orlando - toilets get wet and messy after about 5 hours and were never cleaned after."
Cons: "Overall, food and service were ok. I really didn't think Emirates did anything different in Econony class compared to other airlines (Air India)"
Pros: "Emirates is my carrier of choice, and that's due to their continued service standards, friendliness and rates. This flight was pretty empty so service was even better and I was able to spread myself out. Also, well done to the crew. They continue to maintain high standards."
Cons: "This is the first time it's happened to me, but I was scheduled to leave Oslo on Wednesday, but Emirates cancelled my flight and put me on the next one. It would have been alright had they offered some sort of compensation or made it up to me in one way or another, but that was not going to happen. They cancelled and the cost was on me (as per the T's & C's I was told) and that was pretty much that. Here's a hint, it seems like their Scandinavian flights are underperforming and in a cost saving effort, they're randomly cancelling flights. I subsequently found out they did it to someone else in the area causing them to miss two days of a pre-booked vacation. So, if they cancel, it's going to cost you a lot more in a city like Oslo to wait a day - not to mention the costs involved in missing work or vacation, so maybe shop around then. I still like Emirates, but I'm feeling a little burnt after this episode."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Pros: "My experience at the check in kiosk was very positive. Very friendly and polite employees."
Pros: "The predictable skyward gold benefits when travelling with emirates"
Cons: "The low quality Oryx lounge offerings on my Doha-Dubai return leg"
Cons: "I have to cancel on the counter because me and fianse donor have visa"
Pros: "The best"
Pros: "777 are pretty good"
Cons: "Screen was broken for the whole flight , after repeated calls to the flight attendants nothing was done"
Cons: "When you fly from Dubai boarding is a disaster and staff is rude"
Pros: "Great staff and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Other passengers..."
