Pros: "Entertainment, punctuality, helpful crew"
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Improve cabin comfortable"
Pros: "Latam could not issue a boarding pass at Santiago. This led to long waiting at Brazilian immigration checkpoint. Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."
Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."
Cons: "When checking in, they were quite slow and they didn't seem like they wanted to be helpful. Some crew members were not as helpful as when we were going to Brazil, and even the way they communicated the rules was not always very nice, but not rude either."
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Time to board delayed. Delayed landing. The passengers bus in airport got malfunctioned which caused more delay to board on flight."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Cons: "On each of my meals served the food was cold, and was actually ice cold in some places, some of the food served was inedible it was so bad. on a 16 hour flight the crew was mostly absent. Not once did they offer me s glass of water other than the little cups that came with the meal, nor did they come through the cabin to pick up trash. By the end of the flight the waste paper places in the bathrooms were overflowing at least in the bathroom I used."
Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."
Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"

Cons: "Food was mediocre, service was poor crew took 20 mins to answer the request, our food was served very late, no legroom, no good snack refreshment options"

Pros: "Very courteous and attentive And always with a smile! A great way to travel, it's hard to go back to other airlines after having experienced Emirates!"
Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "Emirates is always the best."

Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."
Pros: "travel was pleasant"
Pros: "The AC was leaking on the seat and the crew made. Me to sit on the wet seat during Landing!! and tons of cold water dripped on me during taxing making me sick"
Pros: "Dubai was fun."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. Not very heathy. More fruit and veg please. I don't like that the flight attendants close the curtain for first class disembarking. Seemed pretty childish and snobby."
Pros: "Should sttart a flight from Edmonton to Dubai or Calgary to dubai"
Pros: "Everything was great. They have it together."
Pros: "This is the 4th times I use Emirates and they maintain their standards. The entertainment is very good, a lot of new movies and tv shows, in many languages. The quality of the plane is still amazing, I love Airbus even in economy class and I am 6'2 tall. So enough space for my legs, the plane seemed to be pretty new. Love it. No problem during the boarding. Staff very efficient at that time The same during the flight. they were there to provide us a high standards services. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "The food portion were pretty small BUT there were some leftover that the crew agree to give if you asked for. So at the end not too bad."
Pros: "The variety of movies available on ICE"
