Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible. Thank you Emirates...you made my trip a pleasure both to and from Dubai."

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Cons: "This was a fraudulent charge!!"
Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Pros: "better than super stinky American carriers"
Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."
Pros: "The ICE system was a perfect way to spend 13 hours on a plane. I watched a movie, listened to music, even watched part of a live broadcast NFL game during the trip. Much appreciated!"
Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it. I needed to ask more than three times to get water, again and again, I can't understand this behaviour at all. They treat you extremely bad unless you fly business with them. I felt uncomfortable and didn't like this behaviour at all."
Pros: "A380 is a great airplane. More specs for legs. Comfortable seats. Good choice of movies (different languages). Great crew"
Cons: "Meal was good but I had more from Emirates. It was night flight and light worked within the flight."
Pros: "The service of the airline. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very small and tight. Most other long haul flights the seats are much more comfortable."
Pros: "Emirates gets credit for reasonable legroom in economy class and excellent entertainment choices."

Cons: "Service was bad."

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"
Pros: "The flight entertainment system and crew were top-notch."
Cons: "The off-loading from the plane after landing in Dubai was as terrible as I have experienced. It took forever to get off the train to the busses, the staff on the ground seemed very confused about who should go to which bus (much to the visible frustration of flight attendants), and once we boarded the bus, it was a half-hour trip to the airport terminal. Half an hour. Standing up, to get from the plane to the airport. We landed an A380 at the Emirates flagship airport on-time for a normally scheduled flight, and it seemed to take everyone by surprise."
Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."
Pros: "Crew were great with looking after us. Got us a special meal even though we didn't order it ahead of the flight. Very impressed."
Pros: "Food , entertainment"
Cons: "Seats very compact"
Pros: "The good hospitality and customer service from the airline staff and agents over the phone."
Cons: "I disliked the feeling of being targeted and discriminated against. I was forced to undergo additional unwarranted extensive security checks as I was boarding the plane. I was asked to step aside and have my carry on rechecked while I was being interrogated by an officer. This is all in addition to going through an extensive security check at the security checkpoint. This procedure is Unjust and Humiliating for innocent passengers try to take a flight with absolutely nothing to hide."
Cons: "There was no wheelchair available at Dubai airport."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff!

Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"

Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Friendly staff"

I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Cons: "Virgin seats are not the best business class seats out there..."

Cons: "not aplicable"
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "Boarding OK, Seats very very comfortable. Enough space for my long legs"
Cons: "Coffee and tea were proposed, but have to be paid. I would understand for alcohol, but for tea and coffee, as a customer I felt a bit insulted"
Pros: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Why do they do this job if they hate dealing with the passengers? They act as if we are a burden to them."
Pros: "Tight in ecomony. Aisle seats are bad I was hit the entire flight."
Cons: "Seats not the best"
Pros: "This was a very full flight and the crew were exceptionally patient with everyone. Much appreciated."
Pros: "personnel extremely courteous, helpful and looked like they enjoyed their vocstion."
Cons: "not being able to check bags thru entire trip from gerneva thru London to lax. had to travel thru customs etc to get backs and then travel to terminal 2 from terminal, awful experience. made connecting flight by 15 minutes."
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."
Pros: "Easy flight schedules"
Cons: "Legroom in first class is a joke."
Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Pros: "flight was not crowded and service attentive and courteous"

Cons: "Customer service - useless and with attitude. Couldn’t check in for the flight either on ba.com or over the phone."
Cons: "Even after booking three months ahead, my husband and I were seated in middle seats, rows apart. We asked several staff people at the airport to rectify the situation and none could."

Pros: "The 787 aircraft is better"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "Coffee/tea was not free"

Pros: "The kindness of the service people."
Cons: "not even water was offered- i left the flight really dehydrated, and with a terrible migraine because there was a young baby behind me who was crying the entire time. The flight was mostly empty yet no one suggested moving the baby and parents (to the back) or the passengers around the baby to seats that were more quiet."
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."
Pros: "We liked that our Renfe train from downtown Madrid took us straight to Terminal 4, same as British Airways. Service counter personnel were helpful and suggested checking in our carryon luggage for no charge. Plane was on time and comfortable for the trip to London."
Pros: "I always enjoy the BA flights. The crew is always warm and welcoming and they run very efficiently."
Cons: "Plane was still dirty from the previous flight. First time I've every seen that. And there didn't seem to be a soft-drink service - even for a glass of water. All refreshments had to be purchased"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food advertised was not available."
Pros: "The crew was efficient"
Cons: "Food was really bad. I would like much more entertainment in such a long flight."
Pros: "The plane got to destination earlier"
Cons: "No in flight entartaiment"
Cons: "I was annoyed that they charged for soft drinks and water on this flight. There was no entertainment. Just a seat on a plane."
Pros: "flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, due to a metal box under the seats . You have to sit with legs in an angle, instead of straight; After 9 hours, it's very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."
Pros: "It was a short flight but the plane and staff were amazing."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Last-minute gate change with no announcement."
Cons: "Everything was for sale only."
Pros: "The way to goA380"
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"

There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."
Pros: "We were singled out by the ticketing agent and forced to pay 55 francs (approx $52 us) to check in a bag that clearly fit In the overhead storage compartment. additionally there were loads of other folks with bags the same size or even larger boarding the plane."
Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of stampede"
