Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
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: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Pros: "The stewards were very attractive, the entertainment was plenty of movie choices."
Cons: "The food was terrible, the seats were extremely uncomfortiable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Pros: "Entertainment in plan .. airport facilities"
Cons: "Staff in chick in only no staff .. staff in plan ignoring most of passengers except the rude passenger to stop fighting"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."

Cons: "While they gave good AVML food on DXB-HYD flight, not sure what stops them from repeating it on SFO-DXB flight., It was worst to the end."
Cons: "Emirates charging for duty free merchandise bought in Dubai. It is ridiculous that they add the weight of the duty free merchandise to your carry on luggage and charge at the gate. If I have known that I could have shopped in Dubai duty free. The customer service person was very rude too."
Pros: "I like everything, every boby"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "they have changed how they serve drinks and food. they used to do that separately. now they club it together."

Cons: "I travelled internationally after 4 years. When I boarded my flight in New York, nobody cared to weigh my carry obs. However at my transit, while I was about to board the next flight, they weighed it and asked me to pay 100$ extra. If the airlines didn't allow more than 7 kilos carry on, they should have weighed it at the beginning of my trip since I had lots of room left in my check in and would have adjusted the luggage."
Cons: "seats wouldn't recline, they say it is a mechanical, I had to sit uncomfortably for 16 hrs"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment and the cabin crew is very welcomjng and nice smaile on their faces."

Pros: "I am pleased to travel and thanks to Emirates."
Pros: "Food was good and seating was comfortable."
Cons: "That i could not step out for a 7 hour layover in dubai. transit visa should be granted even for that duration."
Pros: "Everything! The plane is the size of a bldg lol! Economy seats were really comfortable, lucked up & sat in an exit row. They feed you, give you plenty to drink in economy! Out flight attendants were superb, especially Vidhi! She was a total sweetheart!"

Cons: "Seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "All are good."
Cons: "Served vegetarian, I am very happy."
Pros: "Food and entertainment. Didn't crash."
Cons: "There is no leg room, and the seats are so small that everyone ends up leaning on each other. Better pray that you neighbor doesn't show up. Ever tried to eat while in such close proximity to another human? Totally not recommended, yet it's a requirement on these flights. I was not able to eat at the same time as my neighbors. I let them eat first, then ate my food."
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: "food and timing services staff behavior and treats excellent"
Cons: "pls replace drinking water bottles (small) in the place of cups"
Pros: "Excellent service in flight and nice food"
Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."

Pros: "The response and service of Airhostesses are outstanding. I have to mention specially the assistance their supervisor provided to me when I have felt a little breathlessness and her constant attention on me to ensure I am normal and comfortable. Unfortunately I do not remember her name. Thanks to her and her team I felt at home."
Cons: "Vegetarian food would be good if it was less spicy."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "Wide selection of movies, TV shows and other entertainment. Food was decent. Crew was attentive enough."
Cons: "They did not have special meals that I ordered but the crew tried their best to make it up. But they had the same collection of movies both ways. My return flight was a month later. Entertainment set of was pretty good on their Boeing 777-300Er flight, but average on the A380-800. The 16 hour flight will not be pleasant for most. Why the toilets are so compact? I would pay extra for bit more room. This is a problem with all airlines. They allowed me to take a laptop and a hand baggage in LAX but forced me to check in the hand bag in Dubai. They pick random passengers for this. Irritating."
Cons: "I pre-selected the Asian Veg Meal but they were out and I didn't get any meal because of that."
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"
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."

Cons: "Food came before alcohol :)"
