The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!
Pros: "Good selection of movies. Lights changing color on ceiling through the flight"
Cons: "Need more water service throughout the flight!! So dehydrated! Couldn't get up and disturb my seatmate, but really needed more water!"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment. Seats were okay."
Cons: "Our Kochi to Dubai flight was late, the bus at Dubai airport was extremely slow and we reached Dubai airport two minutes prior to the closing of the boarding of the onward flight. We had to literally run to catch our onward flight to Boston. However, the ground staff at Dubai were excellent, called the gate staff to alert them about us and managed to get us on board. Surprisingly, our luggage was also loaded on to the same flight and we couldn't believe we got the luggage in Boston! Overall, all went well."
Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."
Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "Food and the attendants"
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "All the teem all the services"
Cons: "My 2 bags didn't come out to Cairo airport Your employee helps me to report that. He didn't give me the $200 to buy some clothes. Because he told me that my 2 bags coming out in a vew hours. And they give my cell phone # 01114488833 and I give them my wife's cell phone # 01225993535. They never call me they never answer me. 8 days. So I went yesterday 10-11-18 to the Cairo airport I met one of your employees. Asking for my 2 bags they told me that they called my my wife but they didn't. I asked my wife she said they never call me. And she talks to them on phone. They said sorry some mistakes happen they should give me $200 for every single day my bags lait but they didn't ButI received my bags broken an I lost my wife shoes and my candy The chocolate rolled over my clothes And the workers open one of my bags and eat some candy and leave the trash inside the bag"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the one ICE video center that was working offered a ton to watch."
Cons: "On a 13-hour flight, the video center is your main source of not losing your mind. Truly disappointing when you pay for the extra leg room in an exit row and you can’t watch any videos. Unfortunately, the ICE video center was broken on the way to Dubai also. In addition, the flight crew lets people stand around in front of you which reduces the extra leg room you pay a hefty price for. What’s the point of charging over $700 for this added “luxury” on each of your flights from JFK to Male, Maldives when you can’t use it. Emirates is nice, but didn’t reach the expectations they set."
Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
Cons: "My one problem, which is not Emirates' problem, is the lady that sat behind me on my way to Dubai in October was unhappy if I reclined my seat at all. I didn't want to cause a problem, so I left it upright - later on, when I walked to the back, I saw her sleeping w/her seat reclined! That really was my only complaint, and like I say, that really has nothing to do w/Emirates."
Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."
Pros: "Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Asian Meal is not good at all"
Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."
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: "I liked the complimentary alcohol, but you had to get up and ask for additional beer /wine/etc...."

Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "Emirates still remains one of the leaders in hte business"
Cons: "The crew was unwilling to do their job. I sat in the window seat and the crew member assigned to us wasn't even willing to pass me drinks or food leaving the task to the people sitting next to me or to me overly stretching to get to the tray. She never smiled, talked nor look at us. Not really a kind service I would say. Never had such a odd experience, usually people doing that job have much more attention to these type of details"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Cons: "Seats are not very big."
Pros: "Lufthansa did a great job in their customer service, their movie selection to include their technology available to each customer."
Cons: "the Seat was uncomfortable after an 8-hour flight. I have taken many 14+ hour flights to distant locations so I was surprised how quickly their seats caused discomfort."
Pros: "There were too many people. It seems United is trying to put more seats to make more money. Giving more uncomfortable to passengers."
Cons: "The company forced me to put my luggage out of the plane, which I found strange. On my first flight in this roundtrip they let me have my carry-on without any problems. If they are going to have policies, they should be standards and they should stick to one thing instead of doing different things in different flights."
Pros: "There was some initial confusion on what gate we were at and when everyone could start boarding. Once that was cleared up boarding seemed to be pretty smooth. The crew mostly seemed friendly and helpful. It was nice to have the blankets and pillows on everyone’s chairs in case someone was cold. That way they didn’t have to wait for a flight attendant to get a blanket or pillow."
Cons: "I did not like the food options so much, I think there may have been some alternatives but those alternatives were not clear. Also,the tv screens can sometimes be difficult to get out and put away in the exit rows."
Pros: "Bought a ticket through a discount site. Since I'm a senior I really didn't realize certain things. Didn't realize my TSA wasn't accepted with this ticket, also I'm was in group 5 & always in middle seat. First time I flew on United. I bought the same type of ticket for a flight in April very unhappy about my mistake. I used Skiplagged."

Cons: "Wish there was better food. It was okay."
Pros: "The check in was good. The craft was clean."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "There’s a fee for everything. Check a bag, pay a fee. Need a snack, pay a fee, watch a movie, pay a fee. What’s next? Charge a fee for toilet paper?"
Pros: "Semi professional. Placed in a small space for over four hours and staff at counter did not seems to know the flight status most of the time."

Cons: "The weather delay but there is nothing to control that yet..."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."
Pros: "I booked the basic economy and I was pleased that I had a row to myself. I was nervous it was going to be a tight flight because of the smaller plane. Also I enjoyed the onboard movies available on our personal devices."
Cons: "Gate attendant recommended we check bags because overheads were full, but there were multiple empty overheads when we entered. This caused us an extra delay when we landed."
Pros: "Courteous crew, choice of snacks, on time"
Pros: "The first leg of my journey was on time, a little early, even."

Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Pros: "Streamlined experience and on time. My choice of seat as well at the terminal desk."

Cons: "I flew Economy Plus for the first time in quite a long time. As a 1K member, I usually try to fly Business Class. However, the food in Economy Plus was disgraceful. It was terrible. If I regularly flew United Economy and was served this food, I would try another airline."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Same experience on ANOTHER 8 hour flight I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."

Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and did not recline enough to provide for a nap."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The time"
Cons: "The charge for 1 bagge."

Pros: "Flight was in time and arrived 30min early"
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Direct TV out most of the flight"
Pros: "punctuality, crew"
Cons: "seats on EMB175 are just not meant for flights longer than an hour. Absolutely no low back support on a firm seat flat as a 2x4 makes for a miserable experience, particularly after a previous intercontinental flight."

Cons: "There was no entertainment, no power outlet on one flight, they charge for access to there Internet. No Tvs on the back of the seats"
Pros: "Not at all, crew over fueled the plane and delayed for 1 1/2 hours"
