Airline reviews

Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"

Pros: "The overall experience was good."

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: "Good check-in experience."
Cons: "Entertainment Systems are old, low-resolution and difficult to view & operate compared to, say, A380 aircraft. Some did not work. Seats were cramped. One recliner was broken. Cabin crew smiled less. African legs should not have lower quality of equipment and service than other legs."

Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped. I paid $900 for my flight, and the seats were so on top of one another you could barely breath without touching another human. Just because other airlines do it ... doesn’t mean Emirates should."

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"

Pros: "Efficient and very friendly cabin staff. Captain and team kept us informed of flight progression at reasonable intervals."
Cons: "Some slight delay in clearing up some catering equipment."

Pros: "Everything from take off to service to landing. Was superb, real proffessionals."

Pros: "For other people it seemed to work."

Pros: "My seat mates were very nice about it when I had to climb over them; the food was fine and the staff all were great."
Cons: "Traveling in economy is torture but then it's over. The sound wasn't working at my seat and I got tired of reading lips on the movie I wanted to see. But reading and sleeping weren't bad ways to spend the time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very bad service we press the light no one comes and the food is really bad and my mom we to go get a cup of tea for her headache and the crew member got really mad saying where is your cup we aren’t going to give you a cup where is your cup"

Pros: "Lovely staff....nice food have had worse. Found the seats very comfy as an average size person.Would fly with Emirates again thanks guys x"

Pros: "Smooth"

Pros: "I felt very pampered!"

Cons: "I don't need to be forced to look at advertisement of Dubai airport and then Dubai itself right before landing, when I have 10 minutes of movie left"

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."

Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "The aircraft and flight crew was good. Entertainment selection is awesome."
Cons: "People traveling on this sector just don't know how to behave. It's amazing how the crew puts up with this. As the food service is going on, there were several people who wanted to move up and down the aisle disrupting the service several times. When the flight was taxiing after landing, people had already got up from their seats and were trying to take their bags. Despite many announcements, pax did not care. Hats off to the crew who patiently handled it."

Pros: "Airbus from Melbourne to Dubai is very comfortable for a long haul flight"

Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep. The screens remain on even when passengers go to sleep, making it very bright in the cabin. It would be good if staff could walk through and turn them off manually."

Pros: "Pleasant staff, good lounges"
Cons: "Way too far to travel on foot in Dubai to change planes"

Cons: "didn't like anything about it"

Pros: "Generally the standard was good as I've come to expect from Emirates"
Cons: "There was little communication about boarding at Lusaka. By contrast to larger airports it is not at all clear where to go once you are in the departures area - fine if you are familiar with the airport, but confusing if not. I discovered I should make my way through secondary security into the departure gate area via a small unsigned door. There followed a good deal of confusion among the passengers as to where we should be waiting, and whether the flight was on time or not. Another area which could be improved, but not by the airline, is the listing of departure gates for connecting flights in Dubai. There are so many flights cycling on limited screen space, so you have only a few seconds to locate your flight, from around 90 or so, before having to wait for the cycle to repeat."

Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"

Pros: "We are arived safe"
Cons: "The attitude of the crew it was very good and the comportment very nice"

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "I loved the bigger screens and the fact that I could watch movies from the monument I boarded and did not have to wait until take off! I also loved the use of real cutlery in economy. The flight was fantastic. The toilets in economy are spacious too."
Cons: "The leg room could be a wee bit better. Then again, I was in economy."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "This was a short flight, but still they served coffee, tea, and food. Amazing."
Cons: "Not much to say. All was fine on such a short leg of the trip"

Pros: "The great customer service once on board was outstanding... great amenities and prompt return of requests..."
Cons: "The Airline Denied my WhiteWater Kayak then Allowed 12 hours later 2 Kayaks of equal proportions. My whole trip was focused on having this kayak.. it forced our trip into confined abilities and completely took away from my overall experience in Africa... I want a free flight with a boat.. I can give you flight details of my last flight takken .. What do you say..?"

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: "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."

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Pros: "First class service in economy."
Cons: "The head phone jacks in the arm rests need to. E replaced. I had to frequently jiggle it to get good sound."

Cons: "Flying east from Brazil by Emirates to join my friend in Dubai and then not allowed on the aircraft because I missed the gate by 5 mins. The next flight was two days later!!!"

Pros: "Spacious seating."
Cons: "I wanted to sit upstairs"

Pros: "It's a long way. I was ok. Thanks"

Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"

Pros: "Nice new plane. Efficient and punctual boarding and baggage service. Staff was so friendly and attentive."

Cons: "Some of the crew staff are arrogant and unfriendly. I think they need to be trained on customer service!"

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."

Cons: "Huge drop in the quality of the staff compare to the previous flight 4 hours earlier. A lot of staff and maybe 2 of them seemed to be concerned by their job. Most of them spent most of the time eating, drinking and talking between them. They probably spent a better flight than us. For a 7 hours flight they offered us just once to have a drink. Their office was completely messy. Nobody really care about their job. They all seemed to be in training period."

Pros: "Timings were perfect for flight landing and departure. Cleanliness was there."
Cons: "Service was very poor. Asked for warm water 3-4 times - no response.. Asked for green tea - no response."

Pros: "All was good"

Cons: "The flight was little crowded but over all it was OK the food service was late and meal was delivered one hour late"

Pros: "Accommodating my rest to sit at an exit seat."
Cons: "Delayed departure caused me to miss my connection. Monitors for flight times and gate not enough and you had to go and look for it needs to be big and in ver conspicuous places."

Cons: "The Staff always seems to be very rude - i see how they are to others and and also to me. They always seem either rushed and frustrated - this applies to all the flights i have been on lately with Emirates"

"The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"

Cons: "good short flight"

Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."

Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."

Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"

Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"

Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"

Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."

Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."

Pros: "Seats were noticeably more spacious than comparable airlines. Good entertainment system and selection of films."
Cons: "Location of plug sockets, very difficult to use."

Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."

Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."

Pros: "Boarding was on time, and flight went smoothly. Loved the timing, giving me the whole day to explore the area and move on to the National Parks in the area. Breakfast at Uppington Airport is the best!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"

Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Cons: "Lazy agent said we were too late but bags not booked through on connection which helped cause delay"

Pros: "Pilot effectively communicated about the fueling delay and the imminent storm."
Cons: "Refueling issue : After boarding we had to sit on the aircraft to wait for the refueling driver to arrive and fuel the aircraft. This resulted in a delay of some 20 minutes. ssue"

Pros: "The crew was nice, overall a good flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra baggage on a long layover, because we couldn’t check our bags all the way. My husband amd I had seats next to each other and then when we got to the gate, they had switched his seat... not ideal traveling with a 4 month old."

Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system works very poorly, it need to be upgraded! The quality of the image is very poor, the touchscreen does not respond easily and the stream is often interrupted by clips of ither movies or programs. This is unacceptable for a 14+ hours-long journey!"

Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."

Cons: "We were very upset as we missed our flight to Maseru due to circumstances beyond our control. As a result we had to pay for another set of tickets and pay for s hotel room as no other fflights that day. We arrived to airport in plenty of time however there was a backup at immigration. We waited 10-15 minutes than an employee had everyone in line move to a different line. By the time he slowly walked us over our plane had already boarded. The bus was still there but we were not allowed on. Also, the representative said the boarding was delayed 3 minutes. Actually they boarded early. All along way we were assured there was no problem making flight."

Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."

Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"

Pros: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."

Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Cons: "Staff not so friendly"

Pros: "seats were nice"
Cons: "food was cold. no entertainment for 3-4 hour flight"

Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."

Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."

Cons: "No priority boarding. 15 minutes waiting inside a cramped bus. First three rows in plane are curtailed off but seats are exactly the same as the rest of the plane. Beverage selection was poor and again same as in economy. The lunch was the only difference: a plate of chicken instead of a sandwich. SO WHAT DID I GET FOR PAYING BUSINESS? a curtain, a plate of chicken and exclusive access to the toilet at the head of the plane. Shame on SAA for selling this as a SAA business flight. Or Kayak for wrong advertisement. In the future I will definitely not pay for business as it is absolutely not worth it and will try to fly this portion with Air Botswana"

Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"

Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."

Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"

Pros: "Small plane but a very short flight, so its fine."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"

Pros: "short, easy flight"

Cons: "Lost baggage. Sent to Jouburg instead. Second day at Cape Grace in dirty safari clothes. Still no bags."

Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."

Pros: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"

Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"

Cons: "THe check in lady on the flight from Cape Town, was surly, rude, unhelpful, arrogant...just awful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People were not the friendly except for the stewardess"

Pros: "Efficient, pleasant experience. Coming from the US, it was unusual to have complimentary meal and alcoholic beverages on a short domestic flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and disorganized. I think better communication of procedures would've helped."

Pros: "Great time to arrive in Cape Town. Late Afternoon, head into Cape Town against the flow of traffic so it is an easy ride. Quick, convenient."
Cons: "It is an expensive flight"
