good service

Cons: "Being on time"
Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."
Cons: "Boarded the plane via a very long bus ride to a remote parking bay. Once on board we’re treated to one of Emirates newest Boeing 777’s ."
Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"
Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"
Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."
Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."
Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."
Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "All reasonabley good."
Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."
Cons: "Beeing more than an hour delayed"
Pros: "The food and service was great."
Cons: "Boarding for priority was a bit slow."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"
Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"
Pros: "Everything about the flight - barring one thing - was brilliant. The new overhauled interior with the padded leather seats and a mini bar is an exquisite touch. The build quality of the interior such as the spotlight, switches, buttons all have a classy touch with a very classy interior cabin lighting. It felt like how a business class should be: excellent. And, as usual, the staff remained professional, polite, friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "There was a delay before the take off. I had one booking with four trips with Emirates, three delayed which was a disappointment from a major credible airliner."
Pros: "Good service by Emirates"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"
Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"
Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."
Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"
Pros: "Wi-Fi"
Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."
Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"
Pros: "OK flight"
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"
Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
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."
Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."
Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."
Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"
Pros: "A380 Quiet airplane ride"
Cons: "Food was bland"

Despite requesting for vegetarian meal, we were told in the flight that they don’t have vegetarian meal for us. We were not provided any meal because of that

Check-in and flight very easy. All staff / personnel polite, efficient, friendly. Clean and safe plane. Good price

NA

This was the worst meal I ever had on a flight. It was undercooked pasta with unflavored tomato paste. Horrible.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't fly, they opened counters late, closed the gate early didn't make an announcement."
Pros: "-Flight staff -Flight entertainment"
Cons: "-Last hour gate change -Parking lot instead of gate (both in Wien and Istanbul) -The answer of counter person about the crowdness"
Pros: "Entertainment and punctuality"

Cons: "Flight was late, not first time it happened"
Cons: "Air conditioning didn't work!!"
Cons: "The flight was late, with no explanation."
Cons: "The plane was too hot"
Pros: "Perfect take off and landing. Very smooth flight with good service"
Cons: "Of the last 4 times I've flown with Turkish Airlines, I've been asked to move from the seat I booked. If you book and choose a seat in advance of the flight, I should be entitled to keep it."
Pros: "I’ve flown Many airlines in the past but my experience with Turkish airlines was wonderful. The only bad thing was that there was a lot of turbulence. The staff were super helpful, every time you asked for something they provided quickly. The seats were spacious. Great flight entertainment tons of movies to choose from. Food was yummy. Will defenitly fly with Turkish air in the future."
Pros: "Not bad"
Cons: "Okay"
Pros: "the flight attendants were more present and even spoke English."

Pros: "Everything is just done way better than all the other airlines flying to Europe from America !!!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Good selection of movies too."
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but what has been a horrible pain has been trying to get refunded for an accidental double booking."
Pros: "Movies, I had leg room. Nice friendly staff .."
Cons: "Internet would not work"
Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Onboard food was good"
Cons: "Crew wasn't attentive, flight boarding was delayed with passengers on the bus waiting for boarding ramp to the plane, for awhile no explanation was given."
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Enjoyed: - Service - Food - Amenities"
Cons: "Disliked: - Disembarking & embarking at Attaturk (ie. shuttle bus)"
Pros: "The quality of every aspect of this much shorter flight on a smaller plane was not diminished from the good experience we had on the overnight leg of our journey on a bigger plane. This has not been our experience on some other airlines."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Flying to Tel Aviv (I missed my chance to review), my tray table was broken and the USB wouldn't charge on any of the televisions."
Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Short flight with no issues."
Cons: "No problems--everything average."
Cons: "They moved the time up without prior notice. I could have lost the flight. They checked my bag in Antalya via Istanbul to Naples. When arrived in Naples no luggage. After long wait was told it is held in security in Istanbul. They should have not boarded me if they had problem with the luggage or at least they should have told me in Istanbul not after arriving at destination and have to search for an answer. Extremely poor airline and will never fly with them again."
Cons: "My tv and monitor didnot work...10 hour flight was sooo awfull,pluss i couldnt charge my phone ...When i ask to find me a seat they couldnt and i asked for upgaded seat they have seats but they are not allowed to put me there......10 hour flight I staired at the black screen tv..I paid same amount of money as theothers but got less service and crew didnt even bother the help"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Well our flight wasn't until 4:30 am and we couldn't go into the airport until 1am. So we were sitting outside in the heat for 8 hours until they would let us in."
Pros: "Seating could be wider."
Cons: "Seating."
Pros: "Timing, schedule is well arranged. Staffs are helpful"
Cons: "Every time, the breakfast are omelette??? Its taste was terrible. I flew a two-way flight and got 4 omelettes. And once it messed my stomach."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got lucky to be alive after the flight"
Cons: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Having seen so many ads promoting the quality and service of Turkish Aurlines, I was quite disappointed in the end. Only the entertainment and seat facilities were good."
Cons: "The boarding was a mess in Istanbul. My pre-booked seat was changed in the last minute despite asking to be located in a similar area. The staff were not attentive."
Pros: "Prague airport is nice. Food is good. Boarding was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Entertainment on board was poor. No power outlets."
Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."
Pros: "This rating is for a one hour flight from Istanbul to Ankara. Even so, Turkish Air provided a meal, not just a beverage. Seats were typical coach size, so a bit crowded but not bad. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Baggage handlers in IST threw the bags from the plane so hard onto the cart that they bounced. It's amazing that only one item broke in my bag."
