Pros: "crew was super attentive, seat was very comfortable, but a few of the buttons did not work properly."

USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

They are keep talking around three hours it’s doesn’t problem if a cabin Crew didn’t give them many bottles of wine. They are drinking for three hours with 9 bottles for 3 girls. They are talked so loudly,drunk and the smell very bad.you know i couldn’t sleep but When They are asking for more wine and the cabin crew also give it for them, i cant belived it!!!. And another guy he want to enjoy with them and asked me to change a sit, i want to sleep and i though it will be better for me. But its not. They are talked more louder. And the problem is when they are getting drunk, the guy back to his sit and take something in his cabin, because he can not control his actions so some stuff from his bag drop down over my head also my body. I was mad but how should i do? Point at his face and tell something bad? Oh i can not. canbin crew just comes and say sorry with me. That is a bad flight that i ever had. You treat customers well but you should have a limit. Im so disappointed about my flight of that day. Thank you"

Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."

Cons: "Emirates Check in Person at Orlando International Airport is Rude and RACIST"

Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Cons: "Occasionally, stewardess would hit me while walking through the aisles. It became extremely annoying."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Your flight attendants are terrible, I asked her 3times just to get some water and she raise her voice to me, and I press attendant call button for 5 times just to get some more water but non of your flight attendant showed up at my seat, I'm a purser of Thai airlines so I know this Emirates flight attendant service was suck. I will never fly with Emirates again, so bad services"
Cons: "I booked flight for my husband, however, the credit card authorization process took long and he missed his flight. Hence, the next cheapest available flight was July 3rd. I ended up having to rebook his flight via Air Canada. The payment was processed and accepted immediately. I figured 7 hours was sufficient time to process a payment. It was not. My husband is now incurring additional charges and is missing employment in Canada. I'm looking for some compensation. I have never encountered this wait time when purchasing an airline ticket. Your site/app has great reviews but you need to work on credit card approvals. Thanks for your time and I look forward to being compensated."
Pros: "Very friendly, courteous service. Boeing 777, spacious and quiet aircraft."
Pros: "To start with, the friendliness of the handling crew. They couldn`t be any better. I haven`t any better words to describe them. Friendly.

Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."

Cons: "Coffee and tea were proposed, but have to be paid. I would understand for alcohol, but for tea and coffee, as a customer I felt a bit insulted"
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Why do they do this job if they hate dealing with the passengers? They act as if we are a burden to them."

Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "This was a very full flight and the crew were exceptionally patient with everyone. Much appreciated."
Pros: "personnel extremely courteous, helpful and looked like they enjoyed their vocstion."
Cons: "not being able to check bags thru entire trip from gerneva thru London to lax. had to travel thru customs etc to get backs and then travel to terminal 2 from terminal, awful experience. made connecting flight by 15 minutes."
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."

Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"

Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."

Pros: "The kindness of the service people."
Cons: "not even water was offered- i left the flight really dehydrated, and with a terrible migraine because there was a young baby behind me who was crying the entire time. The flight was mostly empty yet no one suggested moving the baby and parents (to the back) or the passengers around the baby to seats that were more quiet."
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."

Pros: "I always enjoy the BA flights. The crew is always warm and welcoming and they run very efficiently."
Cons: "Plane was still dirty from the previous flight. First time I've every seen that. And there didn't seem to be a soft-drink service - even for a glass of water. All refreshments had to be purchased"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food advertised was not available."
Pros: "The crew was efficient"
Cons: "Food was really bad. I would like much more entertainment in such a long flight."
Pros: "The plane got to destination earlier"
Cons: "No in flight entartaiment"
Cons: "I was annoyed that they charged for soft drinks and water on this flight. There was no entertainment. Just a seat on a plane."
Pros: "flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, due to a metal box under the seats . You have to sit with legs in an angle, instead of straight; After 9 hours, it's very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Last-minute gate change with no announcement."
Cons: "Everything was for sale only."
Pros: "The way to goA380"
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"

There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."
Pros: "We were singled out by the ticketing agent and forced to pay 55 francs (approx $52 us) to check in a bag that clearly fit In the overhead storage compartment. additionally there were loads of other folks with bags the same size or even larger boarding the plane."
Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of stampede"
