Rude crew member.

Great flight. Wonderful crew, delicious food, comfortable seats.

Airplane A380-800 is too big, fully booked. Too many people everywhere, which made me nervous due to Covid-19 infection risks. But food was good, and toilets were fine.

meal portion used to be bigger.

Food was very bad.

Pros: "The crew we're good"
Pros: "Good selection of movies. Lights changing color on ceiling through the flight"
Cons: "Need more water service throughout the flight!! So dehydrated! Couldn't get up and disturb my seatmate, but really needed more water!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Managed to get a whole row to myself (bonus!)."
Cons: "Cheaper change fees. ;)"
Pros: "The timing of the flight and available entertainment"
Cons: "For economy class, maybe more variety to meals?"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Costumer service"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "NA"
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."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"
Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"
Pros: "Flight cancelled with extremely poor service from Emirates."
Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process lacked discipline"
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: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "They were very courteous and provided us with a solution with an overweight luggage so that we wouldn’t pay the extra fees. Flight was very smooth on the 777. Best flight ever."
Cons: "Nothing negative about this flight."
Pros: "The seats on the A380 are a bit larger and offer more leg room. The food is always good and the service is first class."
Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"
Pros: "Food Staff Service Aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Very welcoming. Coach made comfortable. Excellent movie selection"
Pros: "Food was good when we got it."
Cons: "Flight crew was horrible. They rarely picked up Trash and I had my call button on for 2 hrs before someone actually responded just for something to drink. They also continually bumped into everyone walking down the aisle as well as hit people with the food carts. They definitely need a lot more training. Not happy at all."
Pros: "It was comfy, the crew seemed genuinely happy, and the food was good. Never going to complain about smoked salmon."
Cons: "I didn't like that my connecting flight was with another airline"
Pros: "Entertainment - excellent"
Cons: "Seat (bed) - not very comfy (could be wider and full bed) Food - very poor breakfast (dinner was very OK). It's a shame for such an airline to serve such a breakfast (continental)."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"
Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"
Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."
Cons: "Presssigned seats were horrible. Middle 2 of the 4 seater."
Pros: "Every thing about Emirates was first class Including the CREW!!"
Cons: "It was a bit too cold but it did get better afterwards"
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "There were not proper announcements for delay of flight. Flight moved from gate while overheads bins doors were still open, lots of passengers were still standing, walking in the aisles. Even though I told Steward not to wake me for the meals but still I was woken up 3 times for two serving of meals."
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: "Service"
Cons: "Iwas unable to select vegetarian meal on webjet online service"
Cons: "Bad seat"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They treat outbound from India as cargo. I had to request for a blanket three times."
Pros: "The entertainment system, the items handed out for our comfort, the food, the attention."
Cons: "The problem which happens when the person in front of you leans back his/her seat. It makes watching something on the entertainment system very difficult!"
Cons: "service"
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: "Food and tv"
Pros: "lovely crew"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Boarding announcements somewhat vague - not repeated often enough"
Cons: "Boarding was 'mediocre' due to the air crash earlier in the day, led to a gate change and various chaos. Great staff through, so not really so bad and totally understandable...."
Pros: "Great entertainment offers."
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to final destination....still a waiting delivery of them."

Lost 2 check in bags at chicago, no customer service at all. Playing phone tags. Missing critical medications

Food should be supplied as per request. One meal option they are giving as per passenger request either vegetarian or non vegetarian. When real vegetarian people get to choose by that time all vegetarian meals are finished. Entertainment telugu movie collection is very poor. When 90% passengers are Telugu speaking there are only 2 Telugu movies whereas other language selection is more. Movies number should be based on passenger destinations

It is always a joy to fly this airline. Good arrive, beautiful aircraft.

Sampler food this good is very heavy for a flight

This company violated my ticket terms in the form of canceling my flight while failing to notify me about the change. In an attempt to resolve things, they put me on an earlier flight which I reasonably missed even with my best efforts to catch it. It would have made a bit of sense if they changed my flight forward not backward, and they did all of that without even telling me. I've actually had to wait for the following day to catch a flight.

Pros: "Stewards and Air hostess were great. The food was served well. The flight was kept clean and had a great entertainment system. Overall it was a great experience."
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment"

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."
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."
Pros: "Crew was great; plenty of space to stretch out"
Pros: "Decent leg room. New plane."
Cons: "Only one meal was served in about a 6 hour flight. By the end of the flight I was famished."
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Flight was very good"
