The plane was really old. There was no monitor Infront of seats. The speaker that played the voice of crew and captain was broken and noisy. We could hardly understand what they were saying and that was something definitely obvious for them. It was kind of disrespectful when they saw such an obvious annoying problem and not trying to solve it. I really felt angry.

Great flight!

Same as before very over rated plus super expensive to change flight date lots of penalties and bs fees

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "veg food was mostly repeated in all the meals, didn't track who is vegetarian, so ran out of veg food. Pizza wasn't great."
Pros: "Business class on Emirates is always top-class. Very comfortable. Friendly crew. Easy boarding and disembarking. Good drinks. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Food was a less impressive menu due to COVID, more like what you'd get in economy class. But we can't blame the crew for not wanting to do close-up personal service like in the past, during a pandemic. We enjoyed another drink to make up for the lower quality food!"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "Boarding system did not work temporarily and the boarding was delayed"
Pros: "Everything was good and easy"
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: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Pros: "Latam could not issue a boarding pass at Santiago. This led to long waiting at Brazilian immigration checkpoint. Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."
Pros: "Interior of plane was very comfortable and entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Slow to serve food and drink. We had to wait 2 hours before being offered anything."
Pros: "Lucky to have the seat free next to me otherwise not much else good."
Cons: "Was supposed to be a A380 but they changed the flight to 777. I only flew with Emirates to be in the more spacious A380 otherwise I’d have chosen another carrier at better price. I also paid to choose seat which naturally didn’t apply any longer and was put at very back of plane so that money was wasted. They could have at least advised but the attitude was blaze and not willing to even speak to me."
Pros: "Xcellent"
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight!"
Pros: "The boarding and immigration process was smooth and trouble free"
Cons: "Leg space was inadequate for an international flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
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: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Pros: "I like food and spacious seats, make journey comfort"
Cons: "TV movies were outdated,"
Cons: "In cochin to Dubai flight , There was no space to put my carry on baggage, I ask the crew to find the place and put it, but one of the crew said there is a place in the front but she cant take it there, I told her if it is above my seat and close to my seat I don't mind to put , some body taken my space its your responsibility to find the place and put it. then she called her supervisor and the supervisor told me the bag is heavy for her, (the bag was only 7 kg). I have to take the bag all the way to front. The crew is very lazy and too much attitude, wont fly this flight any more."
Pros: "one of the best flights I have had going to zanzibar"
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "food is the same as last flight."
Cons: "movies selection"
Pros: "Everybody was polity with smile the trip as good and"
Cons: "Space very cramped."
Pros: "Nothing. Will not travel again on Emirates"
Cons: "Food Comfort level Flight delay"
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment only."
Cons: "I was surprised when i got on the plane because i always hear great thinhs about the Emirates airplanes, this one was very low quality airplane, and for a long distance flights the flight must have been a better one."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Boarding delayed, no information given to passengers Rush and push Not enough seating at airport Food was okay, so so Crew was okay, no compliments nor complaints"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Technical issues with my in flight entertainment that was never that was never corrected"
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: "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: "Loved that they took care of a Skywards Blue member, even upgrading my wife."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "server told person asking to take away her tray that she did not have three hands"
Pros: "New roomy plane! Great customer service! Kind, friendly, attentive staff. Great airline!"
Pros: "OK flight"
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"
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: "i will be recommending Emirates to ally my friends which will ever be able to use them"
Pros: "Entertainment screens good - good range of music and also internet accessible"
Cons: "Food not very appetising. I did not eat much of it."
Pros: "On time. As comfortable as coach can be. Crew was friendly and helpful. The bag checkthrough/transfer from flydubai to emirates worked fine."
Cons: "Cabin temperature could have been warmer. The seat backtouch screens are aging a bit. They don't track well on the edges of the screen."
Pros: "Flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew, food and comfort. Taken out from flight no reason and harassed by land crew by not giving any flight for 24 hours with one baby and one child. No food offered for 8 hours. Not happy at all"
Pros: "Overall the service and food was nice."
Cons: "I was not able to recline my seat, so did my daughter. This happened for the first time with Emirates. It was a 16 hrs flight and gave me back ache since the passenger in front kept his seat reclined all the time. it gave me less leg room as well."
Pros: "The quiet flight I've been in , the crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The standard meal was spicy to me , change the menu with more choices of healthy suitable for flight"
Pros: "Fresh food, customer service"
Cons: "The food is not good at all"

Excellent.

Movie choices were very limited and old

Pros: "Amazing trip Qatar airline is great"
Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."
Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."
Pros: "From Doha to lax my assigned seat was 20K and some Isidore changed it before I arrived to Doha. Then I called in to get another window seat and likely got 29K. When entering the aircraft another moron changed to to 38E. I’m so definitely getting my refund for this customer service/ flight !"
Cons: "Take a while guess"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced. I am not one of your frequent flyers but travel internationally. However, based on his attitude I will think twice to select Qatar as my choice of airlines."
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: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."
Pros: "Very packed and no leg space"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing"
Cons: "More movies on the system"
Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."
Pros: "Phenomenal sericve Left my earbuds on the plane ther were returned before my next connection"
Cons: "Service service The q suite the airport and more service"
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Stuff is Fantastic, food is delicious, a lot of leg room, got to love Qatar Airways. No wonder they’re number one."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines has amazing service! And they have free internet!"
Cons: "The films are all sensored. And the free internet is only for 30 minutes."
Cons: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Cons: "Business class luggage came late."
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Need good wheel chair service."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Pros: "Great service. Courteous staff"
Cons: "Outdated IFE-overhead screens. Biz customers get iPads preloaded with movies"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to find us vegetarian meals as our booking was incorrect. They had some good movies to watch that made the trip faster"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and one can only eat vegetable curry so many times in a day. At one point I really just wanted dry cereal because rice and curry is not breakfast in my mind"
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"
Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
Pros: "Although I felt Qatar responded poorly to the cancelled flight, the actual flying experience was wonderful and made me forget about the extreme inconvenience and poor customer service regarding the cancelled flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "very upset about fee i was charged for overweight luggage, and the unclear wording on their sites baggage allowance rules."
Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
Cons: "It was an older plane. It seemed smaller and we had no choice in entertainment"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."
Cons: "I did not like that u cannot see what seats are avil before u buy the ticket.. i got a bad seat!"
Pros: "Everything was great except the plane from Doha to Beirut it was too small with no seat screens and bad c music channels and non-comfortable seats !! :( otherwise everything was great !! I like Qatar airlines and don't hesitate to travel with them again Thank you"
Cons: "Chicken sandwich was not good"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"
Cons: "The song selections were somewhat old and should be looked at."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Way to crowed and...you know how u see the clown car in a circus...this was a clown plane...seats are horrible just all together a frustrating flight..."
Pros: "The food and seats were very comfy."
Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"
