Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Solid flight. Emirates always delivers. Nice snack meal on 60 minute flight."

Cons: "This is the second time I have flown the AirBus 380. If you can make sure that you fly this airplane. Even in coach, there is ample leg room and comfort. The flight crew was very attentive and prompt in their service to passengers."

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "reached before schedule. giving passengers enough time for getting off board and give them a little extra time in hand."
Cons: "flight attendant responsible for boarding the flight was rude. he gave unclear instructions creating confusions. the flight interior was average/below average. really inferior quality compared to other emirates flight."

Cons: "Fly Dubai are just substandard. The codeshare flight are ruining the reputation of Emirates."

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Cons: "Be on time. Flight delay was ~3hrs. Flight operated by Fly Dubai and eve though my ticket was with Emirates got charged for coffee and water!!!"

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Pros: "it was good, i like all the services from staff."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing bad"

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Cons: "There was a nosiey family setting behind us they bothered us an the ppl around us the little kid was very hyper and loud un polite and the father him self is very rough when getting up an setting as he would grap the chair very hard and he would move and kick alot we complained to the crew but he didn’t stop and the noise and bothering was there the whole flight, the captain of the flight felt like he isnt a professional as the plain was moving in unstable way on a high speed and uncomfortable degree where we felt unsafe at a point, the flight was Delayed one hour so as the time we took of we reach to dubai an hour late and had just around 50 min to get to the connected flight we had to run and we couldn’t rest or take a look at the airport our waiting time was 1:50 min because of the delay we had to run for the next flight, i think that Emirates airlines should stop dealing with Flydubai crew as they aren’t as professional and they are effecting in a bad way, i have traveled many times with Emirates and this is the first time i dont feel satisfied, next time ill make sure the flight isnt oprated by Flydubai they crew and captain is not in the professional level at all."

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Cons: "How one of your crew member expressed herself to another crew member regarding the passenger next to me. just because he asked her what type of vegetable were in the eggs. Your crew member was very inconsiderate. All she had to do was answer the question and not make any other comment to her co-worker (Joyanne) about how she wish they (meaning ) passengers would read the menu. I was very disappointed about her comment. Even worst, to see how inconsiderate she was and how she did not even considered if this gentleman could read, or did not have his eyewear. I believe her comment was unnecessary and inappropriate at the time. I could not quite get her name, but she does not need to deal with the public."

Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"

Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Cons: "The Barcelona airport was confusing to navigate. Poor signage. Limited restaurant options, and confusing to find them."

Pros: "Food was good and service excellent"
Cons: "The plane was very unconfortable"

Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."

Cons: "We never got there."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "the seat"

Pros: "Empty seats next to us."
Cons: "1 hour delay (not BA's fault) confusion as to gate location"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful Plane was clean Food was hot"
Cons: "Plane was old. Small screen; limited relimited recline. No usb charger. Headphone jack loose. Seats not the best."

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "Good variety of onboard entertainment. Middle seats felt roomy."
Cons: "The staff weren't the most professional (save for one or two members) and the food was not great."

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Cons: "No WIFI"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Pros: "The flight was smooth with no turbulence. The pilot was excellent"
Cons: "Plane too crowded. There was a terrible smell in the luggage bin above my seat! The plane really needed a good cleaning !"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Pros: "Everything was super outdated I asked for new headphones never got them because the ones I’ve had didn’t work the TV screens were so small and so outdated, was a very bad experience"
Cons: "Everything was super outdated I asked for new headphones never got them because the ones I’ve had didn’t work the TV screens were so small and so outdated, was a very bad experience"

Pros: "Got us (but not our bags) to Seattle. Wanted ro charge for water--are you kidding me??"
Cons: "Abysmally awful customer service--way beyond rude and not at all helpful."

Cons: "You had to pay for everything and I do mean everything. Even a glass of water. There were no glasses unless you paid for a bottle. If I have a choice I won’t be flying British Airways again."

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Pros: "Very pleasant crew"

Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Cons: "Checking into Heathrow was interesting because they have automated systems to bag drop. I always like talking to a person which I could have done but was unaware. I had printed my boarding passes which then was sent to the automated line. That being said I had an issue with my carry on it was a literally too big because of the handle sticking out. So I had to check it. One of the women there was kind and sent met back to the British Airways check in section again to check it. She said don't worry it'll be free. So I went to the assigned line and a woman stopped me and told me I needed to stand with the rest of the people in the checked baggage line not the hand baggage line. I said I was sent to this line. She said well you're going to have to pay if it is too big. I said I was sent to this line because I was told it would be free to check it. Her attitude/tone was rude. Which for me was not ok. I had just landed in Heathrow from Newark and was starting jet lag, plus I literally was able to carry on my bag at Newark. Same company! I was trying my best to be kind but she just kept insisting that I was going to pay for the bag. I then stated that I already had paid for the bag! As I had paid for 4 and only checked 3! So if necessary this would be the 4th bag. Now I would not have had to do this if British Airways had allowed me to tack on my Athens trip to my Heathrow trip. When I found out they could do that they said it would be an extra $1025 to do so. I told them that I would just go through customs and get my bags and put them on the Athens flight. Of course I get to the counter and the woman there was wonderful and told me not to worry that it would be taken care of. So thank you to the woman who diverged a ridiculous argument over the handle not fitting in the cage. Moving forward boarding was interesting as I have never ridden in a train that takes you to the plane on the tarmac. It was a little long and VERY hot as they fill them to the brim and it was a good 10 min ride with people packed like sardines. When we got to the plane boarding was quick and efficient. The seating in that plane was very much like a spirit flight for close to 4 hours. There was a lot of turbulence and the landing was a little hard but that's to be expected in planes."

Cons: "Salad was slimy and clearly not fresh. Food was not great."

Pros: "I realize that you always have to pay for food on short haul flights these days but, considering that, I was pleased with the M&S food offerings. There was enough variety to please our young children, vegetarian and omnivores and the prices were reasonable for airline prices. It came in very handy as it was definitely lunch time."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay to reserve a seat on a BA flight beforehand. That's getting to close to Ryanair. Also, the boarding gate at Venice Marco Polo was awful, super overcrowded and confusing. We actually had two different flight lines getting merged. Expect better from BA facilities."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "The service wasn't very good. We had to walk to the galley for drinks mid-flight."

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Flight was delayed because of no AC, but we were put on another plane and the flight was only delayed an hour"
Cons: "Initial boarding. We stood in line for at least 30 - 45 mins to board the plane"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"

Pros: "Food was ok - rest was terrible."
Cons: "Boarding was troublesome due to the fact the person made an error and changed my seat that I had already reserved. I noticed this while walking to the gate and then informed the person at the desk. After some time they determined the error happened at check in and she then returned me to the original booked seat. While in the flight, the lady behind me kept kicking my seat and complaining that I should not have the seat leaning back. Of course this is a fully acceptable function of flying in that the seat can be tilted back when not having food - the crew did not help at all and I was forced to fly the whole time with soon being rude behind me."

Pros: "Service and screen tv"

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"

Pros: "Great service- on time-"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

Cons: "Wheelchair attendant was late picking me up from the Club World lounge (at least the British Airways agent monitoring the whole thing cared and kept us updated while we sat out front waiting. Despite the fact that I'd checked with BA the previous night that yes, I was registered to have a gluten-free meal (as of two weeks beforfehand), the flight attendants had no record of this and no GF meal had been included for me. Entertainment = faded screens, bad touch screen interface, crashed nd needed to be rebooted at one point, touch screen minimally responsive, a shockingly small number of choices. Did not have wireless or a usb port, but fortunately there was a universal AC outlet and I had my wall charger along so that I could spend most of the flight using my iPad to read. I'm especially displease with the food, boarding process, and entertainment considering my boyfriend's and my seats were Club World seats I'd paid for (rather than receiving them as a reward). On the bright side, the lie-flat seats saved me from days of post-flight pain, so it could have been worse. Not pleased overall, and the next time I travel internationally, I'll probably chooseanother airline if the prices only differ by a few hundred dollars."

Pros: "Good entertainment options Made home it alive Lots of water"
Cons: "Flight was late taking off and had to run to make the connection flight to Calgary."

Pros: "We enjoyed the entertainment on the flight. The crew was great too!"
Cons: "We were right in front of the restroom, closest to the back wall. We kept hearing the toilets flush and had to deal with all the people in line for the restrooms. It just felt a little crowded back there. Boarding wasn't ideal either. We were delayed 3 hours and couldn't get a confident update until we actually boarded. The only thing near the gate was a Starbucks that took cash only. That's more of a problem with the airport though. Overall, for an 11 hour flight, it was quite enjoyable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
