Pros: Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates

Cons: train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie

Pros: Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight.

Cons: Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels.

Okay 4,3

Pros: N/A

Cons: We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality.

JNB
DOH
Good 6,3

Pros: Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way.

Cons: Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in ZAR.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
