Pros: "Plenty of room even in economy. Good food for a plane. Very friendly"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Nice quality blankets. Flight wasn't overbooked. Leg room. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours on the runway. Temperature got hot during the night."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
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: "Well trained crew, layout of aircraft and comfort, wide choice of entertainment, smoothness of ride"
Cons: "boarding was rather disorganized mob scene"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight but they serve dinner don't turn lights off then other passengers are shaking you awake to have you put ur seat up this was unacceptable"
Pros: "Excellent selection of entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Pros: "Had a wonderful trip with many pleasant surprises - kind and efficient crew, tasty meals and a variety to choose from, cameras to see the outside at all times, and special treats for kids (photo, travel pack, meals, etc). Looking forward to the next trip on Emirates!"
Pros: "Food was better than Iberia or Delta. Staff greeting friendly."
Cons: "Asked for wine - never came back. No reply. Nothing. Asked for water an hour later - never got water. Asked later in flight, got nasty reply: "Not my job to satisfy coach customers.""
Pros: "I like the confirt and the on time flight."
Cons: "As I'm pilot and being my first flight in a A380, I would like to visit the plane what was denied by a cabin crew."
Pros: "It was comfortable with plenty of space since no one was on the flight."
Cons: "The stop in Milan was unexpected and not marked on the ticket. It was irritating to stop in Milan and then have to reboard. I didn't notice when I was buying the ticket that the flight was a few hours longer than it could have been. I should have just booked my flight straight from Delhi to Europe. It would have been more efficient."
Pros: "So nice to still fly on a comfortable seat and with great and friendly service."
Pros: "Food was really good and they accommodated my gluten free diet with ease. Great movies and tv shows to watch!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the internet to work...not sure if it was my phone or their service. Seats don't lean back much and there isn't as much legroom as some other airlines I've used. Hard to sleep."
Pros: "My first time on Emirates and it was great. Lots of room and amenities even in economy. Food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't want to get off the plane."
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: "The entire experience was first rate- an excellent web-based support network from flight planning through on-line checkin. Airport experience at both MXP and JFK was excellent.. attentive, efficient ground staff- as were aircrews on both our flights with Emirates. Top class, attentive.. really enjoyed the flight. And, we pushed back spot on time both legs."
Cons: "They work the aircraft hard and it shows in small details.. broken latch in the head, bits of trash in the seatback pocket... but still head and shoulders above their competition. Oh, and it'd be nice to have bar service better coordinated with dinner.. the bar showed up quite a while after dinner was handed out. Tough if you prefer wine with your meal."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew and decent food. Good infotainment although I couldn't find live TV in the Menu."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably COLD and DRY! Had two blankets on me and still sneezing. Seats were TIGHT!! Unbelievable!! Such a large plane had seats as small as baby car seats! Left the plane with red eyes, dry nose and aching joints!"
Cons: "My car was left in Dubai , & I am not sure when I will get it."
Pros: "It was more comfortable than a US carrier's coach class, but ,8 hours in coach is still rough."
Pros: "Gorgeous plane, delicious food and great entertainment system."
Cons: "My wife and I checked in together and we have identical bags, but hers did not make it to Milan BECAUSE IT NEVER LEFT NY DUE TO TOTAL INCOMPETENCE. IT TOOK 4 DAYS, 35 PHONECALLS AND INCREDIBLE PERSISTENCE TO MAKE SURE WE GOT IT BACK AND EMIRATES WAS AWFUL IN THIS REGARD."
Cons: "Want to be a millionare English version"
Pros: "Beautiful plane, lots of room, nice lighting, soothing colors, friendly staff, better meals, nice toy pack for my daughter."
Pros: "The fly was fine as usual"
Cons: "Not Emirates fault but they open my bags and made a mess with the presents for my family"
Pros: "The plane was lovely. The food was unusually good for coach. The flight attendants were really nice and I liked that they were from so many different countries. It was also a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Wasnt able to sit next to my wife on my honeymoon"
Cons: "Customer Service is Dead with British Airways!!! I will make every effort not to fly with BA again"
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived 30 min early, fast exit and quick bag retrieval"
Cons: "Pre boarding at the gate was slightly chaotic"
Cons: "Stop losing my luggage and stop charging for food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Sears very uncomfortable flight was running 45 minutes late when it landed in Palma and due to a glitch couldn’t check-in on line"
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Cons: "For starters they should have not misplaced my luggage since I was stuck in LHR for almost 6 hours which means that they had plenty of time to carefully load my single suitcase. I am so mad."
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."
Pros: "New plane and good service"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "I had a window seat, the tv screen worked and I was able to watch a few good movies"
Cons: "The food quality has significantly dropped."
Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."
Pros: "boarded and landed on time. staff was nice."
Cons: "i slept this whole ride so i don't have much to stay that was bad! Most of it just didn't apply to me!"
Pros: "Food extremely ordinary-crew scarce when needed-stuff “sitting” around when they should be removed-standards of “American airlines” r way below others & should not be-BA whom I booked with should find another partner-Still waiting to be impressed by a NA airline"
Cons: "Service, staff, food. Hoping the return flight will be a bit above the norm"
Pros: "Flight crew informed us what was happening although all passengers were accounted for earlier than departure time. Very pleasant crew members and pilots."
Cons: "No entertainment available and no snacks available without purchase."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Very room seats."
Cons: "They even charge for water."
Pros: "I chose British airway relying on safety record depite being comparatively expensive."
Cons: "The outer seat arm was faulty. It couldn’t be folded back, so getting out or in was very difficult. It is certainly risky in case of emergency . I asked the hostess to report it. Nothing complementary offered to passengers .Other reputable airlines do, such as a drink , or chocolate bar ."
Cons: "There was no food or movie"
Pros: "I managed to get onto an earlier flight than anticipated when my original flight to Milan was canceled. The flight went well and service was certainly completely acceptable. I don't recall many details more than two weeks later."
Cons: "The exit row seat available on the rebooked flight was a middle seat, and I can't really complain since I did get the extra leg room I originally booked. I didn't like the length of time I had to wait at Heathrow, however, due to the canceled flight. It was several hours! My apartment rental landlord and I were both inconvenienced somewhat by the late evening arrival when an early afternoon arrival was initially scheduled."
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
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."
Cons: "I paid for TWO EXTRA suitcases for my flight. I carefully packed and weighted them in advance. The "lady" on the counter made me remove one jacket and one pair of boots from each suitcase because it was GRAMS over the limit. Grams those that my hand scale did not accuse at all. The following customer right after me had KILOS OVER the limit (almost SEVEN) and were not flying business or first class, regular economic class just like me. And they did not had to remove a thing from their extra heavy suitcases. What is the company criteria? Anyway, I bought me another return flight on OTHER airline and simply lost my return flight on BA. I am never flying this horrible company again."
Pros: "the pre-boarding for families with kids was nice, the staff were helpful during the flight"
Cons: "The flight home to DC was fine. The flight going to London from DCA was horrible.The deserts on the kids meals had mold on them. My daughter was vomiting as a result of the food. It ate into our trip which was hard for us as we were visiting my grandmother who is not well. We contacted the airline about it and their proposed compensation was not what we were expecting. Honestly we plan to make an annual trip but based on our experiences with this trip maybe we'll choose a different airline."
Pros: "There were no passengers in middle seats. I liked the M&S food for purchase, although they ran out of sandwiches by row 10."
Cons: "I made the connection from T3 to T5; my bags didn’t, again, BA!"
Pros: "Entertainment good, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Snack was pathetic, chips and chocolate. Lunch was not very good, only two choices. A lot of airlines have three."
Pros: "The entertainment, food and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats on the 747-400 were less comfortable than the Airbus 300 going to London. The airbus also provided several more inches of legroom."
Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours in the airplane before they would take off, first because they said there was a line for the taxi gate, then they said something was wrong with the airplane they needed to fix it. Shouldn't they do maintenance before they load a plane?"
Pros: "It was a smooth landing."
Cons: "Do difference between business and coach except no one in the middle. Same seats, same everything. Save your money."
Pros: "Plane was comfy and airport setup was good"
Cons: "The prices of items at airort"
Pros: "Nice, smooth flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Pre flight information, checking in online & self baggage drop."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on runway for 30 mins with no explanation. Not very comfortable, cramped. Can't pay for refreshments with cash."
Pros: "I had an Indian inspired chicken dish. It was the first time I have ever enjoyed airplane food. Nicely done."
Cons: "I was lucky and got an emergency isle row. Even so, I am not a big person. I'm a 25 year old athlete. And I find the seats are getting tight. My shoulders are right at the edge. This isn't a condemnation of British Airways specifically, more a criticism of all airlines. This sardine style seating is a trend I'd like to roll back or at least halt."
Cons: "Our bags were lost. Only water was offered."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Very poor service. Did not offer drinks. When asked for drinks the crew said they are doing duty free and did not serve water or drinks."
Pros: "Food was great All flights were on time Very clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "I thouht that the seats were comfortable. When we boarded the Madrid to London flight, we were surprised to find that the aisle seats that we had paid extra to book had been changed, and although my husband had an aisle seat, I did not. On the longer flight from London to Seattle , we did both have aisle seats, which was important to both of us. We get up more frequently than many people to use the bathroom."
Cons: "There were a couple of women who were very cold, and there were no crew members in economy class who could speak Spanish who could respond to them appropriately to them. The attendants just kept saying, sorry, I don't speak Spanish. This seemed very surprising to me, as the flight connected a Spanish- speaking country to London!"
Pros: "nothing to be noted"
Cons: "late departure"
Pros: "This was maybe a regional carrier, the flight was a bit more mundane compared to the wide-body crossing the Atlantic, however, there was nothing to really complain about. Boarding was a bit of a madhouse, but in the end not too eventful."
Cons: "We booked a wheelchair transfer from the connecting flight, and BA refused to provide the service. My elderly mother in law with limited mobility was left alone and stranded at Heathrow and was only assisted by fellow passengers (NOT BA staff). Unbelievable."
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "Everything was on time. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Checking in for BA was a headache because of my Alaska connection so I was unable to request a window seat. Not able to request a window seat prior to check in."
Pros: "I upgraded my seat fr more legroom"
Cons: "On the trip over, British Air had no record of my seat upgrades. They tried to accomodate, but it was not the same. They did process a payment for about $110 for upgrades both way, however, and I have written to get a refund. In general, British Air can be not responsive or helpful in the admin department and i will avoid them from hereon."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Cons: "No new movies!~"
