Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew!! Lots of entertainment options. Food decent. Better than on trip from Seattle to Dubai. Check in Bathrooms kept clean on long flight We were encouraged to walk around"
Cons: "Boarding cumbersome We left Dubai late and arrived Seattle late. It was a little g flight already and the extra seat time of the delay was difficult."
Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"
Pros: "The options for drinks for this 13hr flight were great. The food was sufficient. The ride was smooth as usual."
Cons: "I know the crew gets tired too, but the whole crew shouldn't be tired and disappear all at once."
Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."
Pros: "The attendant helped find me a vegan option at the last second."
Cons: "If you want upgrade you should bay 2100 USD why it’s a upgrade not new ticket !!"
Pros: "good entertainment, great staff"
Cons: "plane a little older, but all in, it was fine"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful in many ways."
Cons: "The seats that I booked online were not available when I checked in for the flight."
Cons: "poor service"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
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: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."

Cons: "Smalller cans for drinks. Need more free internet."
Pros: "Leg room, seats reclining, kids movie selection."
Cons: "Food was horrific. Kids meal was just not Edible and smelled bad. By the time cabin crew reached our section there was no food selection. Bathrooms deteriorated through the flight and were not cleaned through a 10 hr flight. Paper towels and toilet toilet paper ran out two thirds of the way into the red-eye flight and bathrooms became non useable in the morning. Crew requires more training in upkeep of airplane on long-haul flights."
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: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "Too much costly for a Tuesday flight. But rest all good"
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "We were not made aware to go get snacks from the serving areas ourselves. We waited to be served. Finally figured it out. The seat near the exits were close to the pantry so could not sleep due to noises of the trays and serving atea. Those seats should cost cheaper ."
Pros: "The entertainment is excellent- so many choices. I also really appreciated having a plug and a port in the house seat, I could keep my devices charged and feel free to use them as much as I liked. The attendants were friendly and helpful the entire flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing, for a near 17 hour flight, I think 1 more snack would have been welcome. Also a personal bottle of water would have been great. I had to ask for water several times and I noticed lots of other passengers doing the same."
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "It was a great experience...nicest airline I've ever flown. The cabin crew was attentive and accommodating and being a vegetarian I found they had many options for my dietary requirements."

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"
Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule with professional staff, and clean planes."
Cons: "The food was ordinary."
Cons: "I waited in queue for almost 4 hours to get past security. While watching people cut the line, airport officials taking bribe and allowing some people to cut the line and more. i did not have enough time to purchase from the duty free store in chennai and since my flight from chennai was late it landed late in Dubai so I did not have any time to purchase anything in dubai duty free before my connecting flight. I reached airport 4 hours before departure and I get treated like this, horrible service."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Had a few hours sleep also. Very happy."
Pros: "We arrived."
Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."
Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
