Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"

Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."

Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"

Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"

Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."

Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"

Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."

Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"

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!"

Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."

Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."

Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."

Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"

Cons: "The food was very cheap, it’s not the Emirates that it used to be, especially if you fligh economy. The crew wasn’t so nice, they seem like tired and unhappy, not even a smile. If you ask for something the answer was sorry we don’t have. The wifi didn’t work properly and now you have to pay for that. My seat, 87K didn’t work, it was blocked and I couldn’t reclined. Emirates used to be very good airline but not anymore."

Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."

Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."

Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"

Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"

Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"

Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"

Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."

Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."

Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"

Pros: "Everything!!!!!"

Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"

Pros: "The crew and flights were very good,I could not find any fault with them."
Cons: "I require assistance due to a spinal injury which makes walking and standing difficult but not impossible. When we arrived at Dubai I was told my name was not on the list for assistance even though I had been taken to the flight in a wheelchair and informed check-in and flight crew. The Emerates assistance people made it seem as if they were doing us a favour by assisting us,made us stand around waiting for a buggy then for the train at no time did they show any respect or compassion for the people they were supposed to be assisting."

Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."

Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."

Cons: "Everything was awesome!"

Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."

Cons: "The in-flight crew was rude and aggressive. Also there was no communication or announcement regarding the delayed flight. Food was substandard. We've had much better experience with emirates in the past. Next time perhaps we will opt for another airline ."

Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"

Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"

Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."

Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green).

I had to use the leg room of the passenger next to me to put my foot down."

Pros: "Crew was the best ever."

Pros: "Flight was on time, and smooth. Food was OK. Very efficient crew."
Cons: "Wheel chair accommodation in Frankfurt is poor, doable but not to the US standards. Lufthansa gate staff member took us to the wrong elevator, ended up outside security and had to go through security screening all over again, now late for flight and not early boarded. Was told she was only on the job for 2 weeks, I don't blame her for her incompetence I blame her management! Plane was loaded on the tarmac via a bus for a large international flight...no gate?? Seats in economy class are equivalent to those on a domestic flight, fairly uncomfortable on a 12hr flight. Many of the entertainment choices were not available, you can select it but all it plays is a short commercial."

Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Food is not good. But you can't expect that with any airline today anymore. Entertainment system wasn't working at my seat."

Pros: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."

Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"

Cons: "I couldn’t eat the food"

Pros: "I like everything about this airline. The entire crew is always happy to serve and extremely helpful. The food is very good and served hot. When our flight was delayed and it was questionable whether we'd make our Lufthansa connection, there was a small bus with 2 Lufthansa crew members waiting for us on the ground - they escorted us through Customs and directly to the door of the airplane so that we'd make the flight. Service I have never gotten on an American airline!"

Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."

Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"

Cons: "See previous comment. Airline service needs to be vastly improved."

Pros: "Good service, good IFE, smooth, great cabin crew, no complaints."

Pros: "The crew was organized and very polite. Even if it was a bit of delay the plane made it in time and luggage was readily available"
Cons: "One thing that everyone was complaining about was the temperature . It was very cold and nobody anted to do anything about it. Another thing that I found unwise was the entertainment. It was a large selection of movies with very explicit sexual content. I didn't travel with kids but I was thinking what I would've done if my kids were seated next to a person like I did who was watching this kind of movies.."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."

Pros: "I said everything in another evaluation"

Cons: "Will need to add more recent movies for entertainment"

Pros: "we received business economy from IAD to FRA"

Pros: "Staff mostly, but also plane, seat, food, boarding and communication."
Cons: "We left late due to weather — which is okay— but pilot didn’t catch up in the air. Also, the connection was tight partly because the Prague flight parked at the far end of the field and the bus ride took forever. Then we had so far to walk to get to the departure gate."

Cons: "Not enough indian movies. Too many other foreign movies. English movies were too old. Frankfurt airport is the worst airport. Terminal to terminal is too far."

Pros: "So rude crew"

Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."

Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""

Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"

Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "delayed"

Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."

Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"

Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"

Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."

Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."

Cons: "Leg room."

Pros: "Professionality onboard, punctuality"
Cons: "In Bologna, They made me take stuff out of my luggage at check in, because the weight was 26kg instead of 23 kg and I'm even a Fyingblue gold member. Totally ridiculous."

Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"

Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"

Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"

Cons: "Security at Heathrow."

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"

Cons: "Movie system frequently had to be rebooted."

Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."

Pros: "Professional pilots. Good flight."
Cons: "Unprofessional and rude flight attendant. Not enough food available on an 11 hours flight."

Cons: "The food was not that good, the beef was like a brick and the service Poor , I asked for water twice, by the time it arrived I already had finished, same for bread I had to ask for bread, was not offer, if I didn’t asked for the main course in the lunch portion on the flight they were taking away the tray after the salad and fruit, I did not like the salad, I tried mine and my Husbands that was salt restricted and they were Awful. I travelled business class, the flight was packed."

Pros: "Premium Economy seats LHR-SAN. Comfortable, decent food, nice variety of entertainment. This flight is the best way to get from San Diego to Europe."
Cons: "The TV portion of the entertainment system didn't work, but there were enough movies to keep me occupied for the 11 hours of the flight."

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."

Pros: "The service was great, plane was clean, entertainment was great, food was OK but not great."
Cons: "In economy the seat spacing was very limited. It was worse than many US domestic flights. If the seat in front was reclined, the TV screen was about 12-15 inches from your face."

Pros: "Crew is super hospitable and nice"
Cons: "They lost my luggage after I asked when I checked it in LA and when I boarded in SD"

Pros: "The crew apologized for the late departure"
Cons: "We were left waiting for the technical issue to be fixe for more than an hour"

Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "food was worse than typical airline"

Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They were awful"

Pros: "If I had another option for a direct flight to London, I'd take that over traveling with BA."
Cons: "They ran out of the meat option for my meal. Understandable but I couldn't eat the veg option either. The flight attendant literally said to me that they had no other food on board - a complete lie of course which I didn't appreciate given the $1500 ticket I paid for the flight."

Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Seats are pretty small"

Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"

Pros: "Boarding at LHR was so quick. This was my first 747 experience and the boarding process for so many people took less time than other flights I've had with smaller crowds. The entertainment was great, flight staff was very cheery, and there was food being served nearly every two hours..."

Cons: "Seat backs are too thin. You feel every time the person behind you goes into the pocket."

Pros: "I generally fly business or first but not this flight I felt like we were treated like we were in first class the attendants was great. Really great. I became a believer in British on this flight!"

Pros: "Courteous service, and good selection of new movies"
Cons: "Turbulence over the mountains, and steward didn't serve food anymore"

Cons: "Seems like the easiest way to make flyers happy is a decent TV with movies on the flight, not this airline. The entertainment consisted of a a 4-6 TV in the back of the seat in front of you that occasionally turned black and white. Time to upgrade that BA!"

Pros: "Staff. Ample seat recline."
Cons: "No usb outlets. Dated entertainment. No indiv air flow control. Screw was loose and a metal wire was wrapped around but you couldnn't see it. So, when I reached to turn the broken dial for air the metal wire pierced my finger."

Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
