Direct gate from Lounge to aircraft... Once enter lounge we feel touch of emirates....
Qantas and Emirates flights were awesome, the timing of dimming lights to encourage sleep was great and the food service and timings were perfect. bathrooms were clean and enough legroom in economy
It’s not what I expect core two out of five
The best airline i have traveled with thus far! They really set standards. Thank you Emirates =]
Pros: "Nothing impressive, mediocre performance"
Cons: "Service improvements"
Pros: "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
Cons: "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "The person behind me didn’t have enough space so I could recline back and get comfortable"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing negative."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Wow I was pleased to see lady with sign daying Dublin Passengers this way"
Cons: "All Good"
Pros: "Crew were excellent , very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food was horrible , not much options for vegans"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Pros: "Beautiful, clean aircraft with multilingual staff-great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Nothing's ng"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Good Flight."
Cons: "They changed the seats without asking."
Pros: "the attention, the comfort, the large amount and options of movies, shows, entertainment channels; the food was good. and most of all the smooth flight and experienced pilots"
Cons: "not informed flight delay in advance"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "I watch 2 movies !"
Cons: "During waiting the staff didn't serve anything! No tea, coffee or juice!"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "No comments"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"
Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "I could not get the barding pass to chennai at seatle itself"
Pros: "I flew Business and it's like first class all the way. Seats are so comfortable-entatinment and a lounge area that feels like a top one With drinks and food-you can almost forget you're on a plane. Helpful. Flight attendants and great food and wine meal selections Fabulous airline I chose for long flights. Incomparable"
Cons: "I loved it all!"
Qantas has really slipped. Horrible breakfast box, staff were trying but the culture is poor and flights were delayed 3 times during the day.
Air New Zealand leave Qantas for dead
No cleaners available Luggage screwed up Entertainment not working Only 1 toilet for full capacity economy class Other locked off Over an hour late arrival
Easy flight and smooth journey. Some delays in boarding, but were made up in flight.
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, had the same lady from the crew on the departure to Australia and on the way back to Dallas take care of me with the unlimited bundaberg ginger beer and hourly checkup to see if I needed anything else."
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good service"
Cons: "Outdated seat and plane. No privacy in business class. Seat and biz class layout not competitive (2-2-2)"
Pros: "The flight is short, it was on time, boarding process was swift."
Cons: "There was one flight attendant with attitude problems but if you ignore her, she would stop it. No big issue."
Pros: "All as expected."
Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Checking online didn’t work. You could not request seats ahead of time and would tell you check in online and when you tried it would fail and told us to go to the airport which we did the day before and they told us they couldn’t do anything. Every agent told us something different about meal plans and seats. Crew onboard were not friendly and rude to us in economy. The vegetarian meal requested was awful and ended up being vegan which was not what we requested. When I asked for fruit plate off the regular menu the flight attendant never followed back up with me and so we didn’t eat any food for on a 15+ hour flight. Even though they had 100+ empty seats we couldn’t move around. Overall I was highly disappointed in their service on this flight."
Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."
Cons: "Flight was late departing."
Cons: "Little more leg room required"
Pros: "They provided much more than a seat. One of us was overcome with air sickness. The flight attendants provided all the help and comfort necessary to recover from sickness. They were indeed very helpful. We are very thankful and grateful for all the care they gave us during the flight."
Cons: "They only offered pretzels."
Cons: "Food and service was appallling. ... an insult to be assed a Lindt choc (1) ... by hand."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Cons: "Delayed!! It’s hilarious.. He didn’t arrived on time"
Pros: "Checking in was quick, fast through security, very enjoyable visit to the Qantas Lounge and off to board. Boarding was fast, the service was pleasant and the flight right on time."
Cons: "If I must be critical the onboard screens are a bit difficult to control. But fine for a short flight."
Pros: "Great service, flight was not packed and had an exit row to myself."
Cons: "Delayed by a half hour. Better than the 2 hours the last time I took this flight 3 weeks ago."
Pros: "Fabulous service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Overall a comfortable way to travel."
Cons: "For flying business the food was awful; the person sitting next to me actually sent his meal back it was so bad. They had a relatively pedestrian menu, but were unable to deliver. The steak was overcooked and grey throughout, prawn starter was tasteless and bland, and panna cotta was overly sweet and weirdly goopy. The dinner options were so uninspiring that I skipped. I understand that it's airline food - but don't offer it if you can't at least make it slightly acceptable.... The staff was a bit all over the place and slow - it seems like having the flight at capacity was too much for them to handle. The sets in business are really starting to show their age and need a really need a steam clean."
Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and engaging"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Food was very good and crew was excellent"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delays are too often"
Pros: "Good price and pleasantly surprised with Quantas (first time flying with them)"
Cons: "I didn't get to choose my seats this time so I got stuck in middles both ways"
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding to help with a defect entertainment centre. They really went out of their way to keep us happy and to solve the problem. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."
Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."
Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"
Pros: "Nicest flight attendants I've seen! Their service is phenomenal and they truly care about your experience. Food and entertainment are great as well."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly cramped, very little legroom for such a long flight."
Pros: "Nothing because they did not allow us to take the flight. We had to buy new sets of tickets."
Cons: "They did not do their best to help us talk to the Australian embassy to allow us to re enter Sydney even as transit passengers just to be able to take our flight with Philippine airlines early the next morning. I know we made a mistake of getting flight to Manila in Sydney. We should have just gotten flight from Auckland instead but it was an honest mistake. They should have just allowed us since we know it's possible. We spent 14, 000NZ additional for that mistake."
Pros: "Food is good which is being served hot , even the bread is being served hot . The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"
Spacious seats for economy class. Food was good. Responsive and great cabin crew.
Food was bad. Comfort was bad
Pros: "Crew members were very helpful and pleasant. The food was excellent and nicely served."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "The seat 21A was absolutely horrid inducing claustrophobia due to limited space all around on a full flight long delayed on ground after taxiing for departure."
Cons: "Etihad needs to be more sensitive of passenger comfort and avoid being so stingy with economy class seats (21A)"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in the flight from Toronto to Abu Dhabi. I was served wrong food. The food was tasteless. The crew was giving on half glass of water when asked for. It felt as if they were scared to give water to drink"
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Pros: "Flight price and time"
Cons: "There was no choice for dinner. It was only a fait accompli that eating from one category remained. When I refused, they did not respond to my request to replace the food. I refused to eat it. The host did not agree to replace the food,"
Pros: "I was not put on the plane because they said my seat did not existed! I had purchased my ticket 3 months prior to departure and they said I did not have a seat on the plane due to overbooking. They clearly gave my seat away to someone else and this is not acceptable."
Cons: "Ethiad was not helpful at all and did not provide any same day help. They’re customer service was absolutely terrible."
Pros: "pretty simple flight, not too packed so I could spread out a bit, slept like a baby really -- super safe flight, I love that"
Cons: "the food, as mentioned above -- meh, you guys are better than the others but still, not so great"
Cons: "The entertainment was too limited"
Pros: "Customer service at the desk was terrible. Also, proceeded to tell me my checked bag would be over $400!!!! Needless to say, I walked to emirates and booked with them. Sad."
Pros: "The new Aircraft is wonderful"
Cons: "Food quality is not good"
Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"
Pros: "One of the best flights I've ever taken"
Cons: "I had to check my hand carry sue to the weight of my bag. When I got my bag from baggage claim I noticed my zippers were opened slightly. When I inspected my bag I noticed that my vapor and my samsung S7 edge were both missing."
Pros: "Not much. Free shower at the airport was welcome."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi airport is poorly designed, crowded and confusing. For some bizarre reason, we had to exit the boarding area (we had arrived very early), and then re-enter at the end of a VERY long line, then dispose of the water we had bought AFTER we had already gone through one set of security checks, to have another bag search inside the boarding area. (???) For a 14 hour flight, you might expect a bit more in the line of amenities (like the Singapore Airlines pamper kit). It’s also nice to know on a long haul what you might be eating (a la Singapore Airlines menu card), but not on Etihad. Also the movies on offer through the entertainment system were a bit stale and dated. They also had no arrivals cards in English, and finding them at Sydney Airport is a nightmare. (Why do we still do the stupid things, anyway?) Then, to top it all off, after a tiring flight, Sydney Airport put on their best demonstration of appalling and confusing crowd control at the baggage carousels and getting through customs. Used to think Etihad was a quality experience, but it doesn’t seem so any more."
Pros: "The crew and well maintained air craft makes my US trip excellent"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS NOT CANCELLED"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS DELAYED, CONNECTING FLIGHTS WERE MISSED. SIGNIFICANT DELAYS"
Cons: "The Crew do not give you the meal what you booked during reservation, what is the point in booking the meal prior if it is not served."
Pros: "Lay flat bed was very nice"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "This airline is the worst airline ever"
Cons: "My complain is more for the ticketing and not the entire flight. Never got a chance to fly with as I missed my flight. The ticketing guys did not help or seem to be interested in helping me find anoyher flight. All as I was concerned my missing of the flight was taken as a gain for the to make more profit with this situation. The people I called to talk to were so rude and sometime even hang up the phone on me.. They ended up cancel my return flight too even though it’s suppose to be 1 month from now. They did not care if anything went okay with me, they kicked me out of their space. I ended up spending $2000 to book another flight. For this reason I hate this airline and I would never ever recommend it to anybody which I know they wouldn’t care because they will still make money but im gonna warn everybody I know to stay away from this airline"
Cons: "The person checking me in at Delhi was rude. Didn’t let me take the cabin bag that others were allowed to take."
Pros: "The airport customer service rescheduled us back to direct flight to Dallas. Our original flight. They helped us expediting boarding process in short time margin. Inside aircraft crew was good and efficient. Food was excellent."
Pros: "All were very friendly: at the airport and in the plane. Good food. We were well informed and in time!!!"
Pros: "Boarding process and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was horrible. First of all, we didn't get what we had requested. On top of it, whatever they had provided was substandard. Especially whatever they had given as sandwich."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Awesome service, smooth flight , great staff. Very spacious"
Cons: "My luggage got damaged, but it's being taken care of."
Pros: "All above"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "Entertainment system , crew"
Cons: "Boarding, as we did it online but waited long queue because online counter was serving all passengers"
Cons: "They ran out of food (lamb and chicken) and served veg dish for both the main courses!!"
Cons: "Customer care"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are way too small and cramped."
Pros: "Just average flight, nothing so special"
Cons: "the flight was so overbooked that I had to stand in the queue for an hour for check-in, All the overhead compartments were full and I could not put a small bag in it, the crew even did not bother to help me with it. Ultimately I had to stow it beneath the seat. The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "That we arrived safely"
Cons: "The seat in the exit aisle was too upright and very uncomfortable. After paying for the exit row seat I expected a more comfortable chair. We were stuck in Abu Dhabi for nearly 2 hours on the runway waiting for take off even though all passengers boarded early."
Cons: "We missed the flight to porto alegre because we went to bali and the flight from asia air delayed 8am. We tried to change the flight in every way, but we could not. We had to buy a new ticket for another company. We are sad and disappointed"
Cons: "If you are flying from AUH to JFK, they pre-clear you for US Customs. What they don't tell you is that the cut-off to get to the gate is one hour before departure. I took a leisurely stroll down to the gate when he signs said 'boarding soon' and was denied entry to the flight. The next one was in seven hours, so I spent the night in the terminal. The big slap in the face, aside from how rude the staff were: they won't just put you on the next flight. You have to buy a new ticket, full fare. It cost me more to get home than the original round trip ticket did to begin with. Trying to discuss this is fruitless - they are absolutely not interested in helping, but instead use phrases like "you are the one that is wrong" and "why should we pay for your mistake". Essentially, I was held hostage in Abu Dhabi and forced to pay a heavy charge to leave."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "Got stuck in a row that doesn't recline. You could call it unlucky for choosing that seat"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "leg rooms are good from Chennai to Abu Dhabi and in flight service was good"
Cons: "I do not like having to take a bus to and fro the terminal in Abu Dhabi. Especially when the connections are short."
