Cons: "don't know of anything"

Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."

Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"

Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"

Pros: "No flight No refund"

Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."

Pros: "Good, comfortable and smooth flight. Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants seem to be bias towards passengers. Had some loud passengers on one of our flights and noone told them to be quiet. Was also asked to move my seat up so that the person behind me could eat, yet the person in front of me was not asked the same thing"

Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."

Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."

Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"

Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

Pros: "Very nice crew."

Cons: "Still stuck in Doha! Flight hasn't happened yet!"

Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"

Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"

Pros: "Food was good. Flight was very organized."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."

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: "everything! the A380 plane and the onboard entertainment and services was fantastic"

Pros: "average, plan is pretty old"
Cons: "TV is terrible. Not a touch screen ."

Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was great"
Cons: "Less air condition towards the end."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Facilities and comfort"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Emirates always is outstanding service and comfort even for a Economic ticket, but...."
Cons: "This time I had problems, I was in the seat 71 of A380 and I realized it is the worst seat to receive boarding service, I always was the last to receive food, so the fish option was “sold out” ... bad experience"

Pros: "Crew was attentive Pilot steered a smooth flight"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"

Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Screen didn’t always work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If you want upgrade you should bay 2100 USD why it’s a upgrade not new ticket !!"

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: "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. Bit noisy down the back but not to bad with noise cancelling headphones."

Cons: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Quantas Operated by Emirates is definitely not Emitrates standard."

Pros: "Food, entertainment and timely flights"
Cons: "Very poor planning/organizing , as we starved after boarding the a plane because of the bad time management of the food service We also boarded very late in Abu Dhabi"

Pros: "Smooth ride. Great food."
Cons: "Slow boarding started later than expected"

Pros: "Beautiful, clean aircraft with multilingual staff-great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Nothing's ng"

Pros: "The crew and overall experience was great. Comfortable travel conditions and crew was very responsive and proactive in comfort."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, nothing special."

Pros: "I loved it."

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: "Everything was wonderful the crew was outstandingly friendly! I would definitely fly again"

Pros: "The flight itself was great, though it was 4 hours delayed. The interface between Jet Blue and Emirates didn't work."
Cons: "I booked roundtrip flights in two legs, so Jet Blue, Emirates, Emirates, Jet Blue. The two airlines didn't seem to interface. In each direction for some reason, I was unable to check in online for the second flight, which didn't make sense (so Emirates there and Jet Blue back). On top of that, neither could give me boarding passes that would work for the other. The customer service kiosk took about 15 minutes to get this done for Jet Blue in JFK."

Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very helpfully and nice"
Cons: "Other passengers and there dramas"

Pros: "Overall the flight was good and had no issues. The staff was professional and friendly."
Cons: "The food could be better."

Pros: "Very good we appreciate good service and good food"

Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

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: "Kids meals, activity packs, kids headphones, travel backpacks/blankets, all made a great travel experience for the kids (2 and 4 years old). Entertainment system was top notch!"

Pros: "Excellent food, good timing of food, drinks, etc. helpful flight attendants who were efficient and not overbearing."
Cons: "The plane was very cold when we got on, and it was difficult to get a blanket. It was also very cold when landing when we were required to give our blankets back!"

Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"

Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"

Pros: "Flight staff good attitude, condition of airplane"
Cons: "On the 15 hour flight Dubai to LAX, Only one hot meal was served, plus later, a sandwich. I'm a thin girl and barely found the food sufficient - imagine the men!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."

Cons: "service from a crew member. she was not obliging. we asked for blanket and she responded whenever i am free will give you.which never happened. and she was giving extra good service to the passenger in front of me . she was shouting at passengers as if we are animals"

Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."

Pros: "SERVICE!!!! EXCELLENT!!"

Pros: "surprisingly the high definition 17inch screens and the plenty of movies was essential"

Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"

Pros: "A lot of space under the seats, good food and beverage."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that some passengers can get drunk during the flight and that they can drink as much alcohol as they can. On the road behind me there were three Arabic guys who were really loud, noisy and impolite during the whole flight. One of them was constantly punching my seat the whole flight and even when I asked him politely to stop he didn't. Instead, he smiled at my face. I told the stewardess about that, but she also didn't do anything. She continued bringing them beers. The floor under their feet was full of empty beer cans. They had at least 20 cans of beer, and after that some wine. I think you should put some restrictions on the allowed alcohol amount per passenger. Wifi is never working!"
