Emirates flights always nice. Service rendered by the staff is superb.I am always comfortable in Emirates flights.

Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Pros: "Crew was kind, attentive, funny, and engaging. The best."
Cons: "A warning about landing in Dubai, and being put on a bus to the terminal"
Pros: "Cleaningness"
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."
Pros: "The size of seats , the food and the service"
Cons: "The entertainment system had few glitches but workable ( flickering banners of the channel or sound, volume"
Pros: "Leg room and friendly staff"
Cons: "Child’s meal does not have vegetarian option, this must be included as it makes not sense in not having this option."
Pros: "I slept well since I updated to business class."
Cons: "Service was awfull. Noticed the air hostesses showed discrimination while serving meals and attending the passengers like me. I had a very positive experience in the past but not on this trip."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "It would be useful if Emirates would allow us to reserve the adjoining seat of the 3 (on less than full flights) so that we can have the extra space."
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "There was no way for us to reserve seats with extra leg room 48 hours before the flight. Had to sit in agony for a 9 hour flight because of height"
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and missed 2nd flight due to delay"
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!"
Pros: "Service was slow, but fine."
Cons: "* Couldn't online check-in * Seat selection was not honoured * Plane model not as advertised * No entertainment on board"
Pros: "Crew was lovely, patient with all us skiers returning from the slopes. The food was EXCELLENT- for airline food. And I was in economy."
Cons: "The Entertainment tech was not smooth, had difficulty getting it to function and likely annoyed the person in front of me with all my tapping."
Pros: "When you lose your phone in the business class seat and a technician goes to find it once you land in Zurich and the day that it has miraculously disappeared there isn’t much to like at all about Swiss Airlines. Swiss Airlines isn’t going to hear the end of this is they don’t agree to replace my son’s phone. My husband is a lawyer and we are prepared to bring this to the public."
Cons: "My son dropped his phone in business class seat and the ground staff technician claimed it wasn’t there. Theft at its best! Swiss Air better take responsibility for their shady staff and agree to replace my don’s Phone promptly or we will take this to the public eye and courts. I’m sure we could get a big class action suit."
Pros: "On time! Courteous. Free meal! Even on flight less than 2 hours!"
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "Enjoyed the surprisingly good vegetarian hot meal, wine, and chocolate! (And silverware) Said to us they cared for passengers and the environment. A much better overall experience than with United!"
Cons: "Plane did not have a place to switch to the other aisle without disturbing passengers or crew! You need to move a tad bit on such a long flight!"

Tai-City to Atlanta :Lots of legroom on the flight. No interaction from the staff at all on the plane. They only attended to the First Class passengers. There was no entertainment. Security I was body scanned even though I hadn't set off an alarm, my father-in-law in his 80s, was stopped and subjected to a through body search, told that they would have to place their hands in intimate places. There were several border guards present, and as we walked off we could hear the TWA officer talk about the procedure as if he was training. My father-in-law was a little upset about the whole process. A kind explanation that training was taking place would have been more acceptable, and it felt dehumanizing to him. Atlanta to London: Check in was difficult we had been unable to do this online for 2 of the family members on the same booking both in their mid to late-80s. No seats had been allocated for them and we were all travelling Premium Economy. After several phone calls to the booking agent and conversations with Delta staff at TriCites airport, we were told that seats would be allocated at the gate in Atlanta. When we arrived at Atlanta, and spoke to a member of the boarding staff at the gate, he was curt and repeated back exactly what we had just told him, that only one of us was checked in. I explained that we had been unable to check-in online for the 2 family members (I had tried twice). He again repeated back that we needed to check-in. As we were in transit, I was at a loss at what he wanted us to do, but he kept repeating that we needed to do this. I asked where we should do this. No answer. In fact all he did throughout was look at his screen. He told us that there were no seats in Premium Economy, and that he could offer my parents-in-law 'two seats at the back'. I asked if he meant at the back of Premium Economy, and he replied, 'No, at the back of the plane'. At this point, myself and my father-in-law pointed out that they had paid for Premium Economy tickets and expected seats there. He never took his eyes off the screen once. Then he hit a button and it printed out two boarding passes for my parents-in-law. The seats were directly across from my seat. He had gone from saying there were no seats to somehow finding two together. No explanation, no eye contact, nothing. The flight: As we boarded, our first introduction to the flight was the stewardess at the entrance addressing a passenger with an annoyed and loud voice about a bag that belonged to them. That was not promising. The seats were good, and so were all the accessories. The food, etc.: we had flown with Virgin on our outward journey and I could not fault it. The service and food was excellent, the stewards very helpful, offering additional drinks and snacks. The toilets were more accessible than Delta, which were in the economy area and were told in no uncertain terms that we should not use the First Class toilets, even though they were much closer to our section of the plane. We had a menu for both flights, yet when I asked for the chicken dish on Delta, I was told that there was none left and that there was another chicken dish with mashed potatoes and that 'it was fine'. This was almost pushed on me before I could answer. I was sitting 3 rows from the front of the section, so I was surprised that they had already run out. I repeated that I would like the chicken dish on the menu, and asked whether she would be able to get one from her colleague who was serving in the other aisle. The stewardess replied 'No, that's not how it works!' It always has on previous flights, so I was a bit confused. I accepted that I would have to opt for the pasta option (no choice), but was a little perturbed by her response. Minutes later she returns and hands me the chicken dish I had originally asked for. I had already started eating the other one, but was told curtly that I could have both. This was the same stewardess who was shouting at a passenger as we boarded the plane. The food was very poor in the end, nowhere near as good as Virgin's. Unlike Virgin, there was no starter, no bread roll, just a main and a brownie served in a cardboard container. Virgin had provided real china and glass. Unlike Virgin, they did not return to ask if we wanted more drinks, and there was no tea or coffee served after the meal. The breakfast that was served later was equally poor and inedible, apart from the fruit. At the time, the stewardess, a different one, completely walked past my mother-in-law and did not offer her a hot drink. Both my parents-in-law are in their mid to late 80s, they have been world travellers in their time and had decided that this would be the last flight that they ever take. They have health problems, including memory issues. I feel that overall the journey back to London was pretty unpleasant for them especially, and that they were treated badly, especially by the ground staff. We have lived on two continents and are used to long haul flights, and I have to say that this is up there in the worst flight category. Bearing in mind that we had paid extra money expecting comfort and additional attention, it was extremely disappointing. I would fly Virgin again, but never Delta. The two flights were incomparable.

Narelle and Victor were amazing and delivered 1st class customer service

Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Cons: "Overall, I am disappointed in Kayak for listing my round trip flight as KLM, when in actuality, only one short connection of this flight was actually KLM. My itinerary said KLM all over it, but in the fine print it said "operated by Delta." This is dishonest and misleading."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."

The flight was cancel and then changed the gate 3 times and nobody communicated to that change I don’t take any trips whit that company

I had a good experience but it can be better.

Pros: "the crew were amazing. The food was good. 20 minutes late in a snowstorm, amazing. Seats were comfortable. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "The crew were very professional. There was a very difficult passenger who was very rude to the stewards and I thought they coped really well. I was sorry to see them treated in this way."
Pros: "The crew was the best! Excellent service... kind and caring as well as professional."
Cons: "As always, more space but I was fortunate enough to get an exit row this time, which helped."
Cons: "Instead of saying what could have been better, I want to praise the excellent wheel chair service at Munich airport. She went above and beyond, helped us find an alternatively connection after we missed ours and while reassuring us about the solutions. She was First Class service. Thank you."
Pros: "Flight cancelled due to a technical problem, missed connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Pros: "Nice plane, free checked bag, and a snack,"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late as the copilot was late, middle row seat (as I refused to pay the seat choice charge, (and it was only a one hour flight.)"

It was good but it got bad when they cancelled my flight to rochester and couldn’t get me in any flight even for the next day they said i will be a standby.

The boarding seemed especially inefficient- rather than open several lines for boarding they opened one despite having multiple kiosks to check your ticket. So it was hard to squeeze around the person in flight and you often had to wait even tho kiosks were open. The flight crew was great but the flight was delayed before departure, due to long boarding and on the tarmac. I was in one of the last rows and due to a table arranged near the exit to accommodate customers who had missed their flights already, we were backed up on the plane for a long length of time. Luckily I could run through the aiport and just made my connection.

Pros: "Courteous crew, nice leg room, entertainment system worked, periodical food/drink."
Cons: "I requested a special meal request online but it didn’t go through, and the crew had to find me an alternate meal."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Pros: "Blanks were comfy, staff very friendly and the food was tasty"
Cons: "One overhead speaker was crackling and not sure if it worked quite right, couldn’t hear announcements very well."
Pros: "Nice friendly crew, happened to mention it was our anniversary and they kindly presented us with a glass of champagne from the posh end!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the food was quick, efficient and goo."
Cons: "Place the correct boarding time on the boarding pass. It would be nice to have more accuracy about boarding."
Cons: "Delay , rebooked on fight. Had to wait 8 hours. I needed a wheelchair .. they put Erin a remote location with a rude assistant in charge of transfers for wheel chairs . She had none. Made me walk 15 minutes to find a place to take my meds. She couldn’t care less."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than an hour due to mishandling of baggage - was at runway for takeoff and was called back to the gate because a bag was loaded that should not have been."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
