I had a smooth flight through out my journey. This time around all was well. Thank you to the team.

Pros: "Nothing impressive, mediocre performance"
Cons: "Service improvements"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good choice of movies"
Cons: "Would have been nice to get offered beverages more often. Was hard to get water as much as I needed without disrupting my fellow seat mates."
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, and food was amazing"
Cons: "Some of the fixtures were falling off, and the side controller for the TV screen was not connected or working. It is to be expected from an Older A 380, but not a deal breaker by any means"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "My judgement will be unfair cause I love Emirates airlines"
Pros: "Ok"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was good. Seat wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Price should be a little less, comparable to that of Qatar Airways."
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: "Relaxing Cabin crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not that I can think if"
Cons: "So many people were ill near me and the 14 hours of journey was crazy with such curcumstances around you.Those people should not have allowed to board"
Cons: "Delayed my luggage. Still waiting for Emirates to call me after 2 days"
Cons: "Food options have changed. We used to get AVM and now IVM is pretty bad..Hope you can replace unhealthy UPMA like items to healthy Pongal"
Pros: ":("
Cons: "Don’t expect any assistance with the change of a passenger name - you will be asked to buy a new ticket without reimbursement for the mistake that is by any stretch of imagination only a duplicate bookings. What will happen is that either the travel company or the airline simply will blame you."
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"
Pros: "I always love traveli ng eith Emirates. Great service. They are punctual. Good entertainment system. Comfortable flights and service overall."
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: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
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: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade."
Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."
Cons: "My 1 Bag was open. Lost few items. Not satisfied the luggage was handled by the crew. Overall Dissatisfied due to Bag was received in open condition. @ Amdavad Airport found issue by Crew but didn't take good care of it."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I love God Father Trilogy. And Emirates has all of it !! Just amazing. And there are also another series like Marvel & Fast/Furious etc. I want actor series like the movies that DiCaprio starrs."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"
Pros: "Entertainment and drinks."
Cons: "My suitcase wasn't delayed by a day, despite having a 16 hour lay over and came damaged! Noone from emirates is responding to my emails!"
Pros: "We were able to switch seats to get more space -- especially leg room"
Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse - despite it being a 14 hour flight!!"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
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: "Fantastic customer service and attentive staff"
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, comfortable flight and excellent service."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Emirates is easily the beeeest airline out there. Their economy beats almost every other airline, and their rewards system is fantastic (truly rewarding -- I get free flights all the time for being a Skywards Silver member). The food is so much better than other airlines too. I ordered a vegan meal and their vegan meals over the past 6 years went from absolutely awful to incredibly delicious and gourmet. Their entertainment system is also the best Ive seen across all airlines. They have movies that are literally still in theaters, as well as old classics, comedies, horrors, tv shows, world movies in every language, audiobooks, meditation guides and more. The crew is totally accommodating. Happy to keep flying on Emirates for every flight !"
Cons: "I haaaate that there are no footrests. It literally makes the biggest difference. These flights are always so long and its impossible to sleep unless you have three or so seats in a row to yourself."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."
Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "they are a bit expensive compared to other airlines but given the service cant complain. hopefully they start A380 from SEA"
Cons: "the baby crying next to us crying thrugh much of the flight. We're still exhausted from not being able to sleep well during the flight."
Pros: "Great service and staff, best food I've had on an airline, great legroom in economy. Overall awesome, in my opinion."
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Cons: "in flight entertainment interface can be improved to be more user friendly."
