Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"

Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight and the service was great!"
Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Pros: "Amicable staff"
Cons: "Baggage was damaged. They seemed to be running low on vegetarian food (despite having selected so online) - I was compensated never the less."
Pros: "I slept most of the flight and awoke to the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Long time to check in. Not the airlines fault. Passengers had so much luggage, I didn't think the plane would leave the ground. There should be a line for people who travel light."
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."
Pros: "Schedule of flight"
Cons: "Space between seats were smaller"
Pros: "The airport in Doha is beautiful with great amenities and shopping. The quiet rooms are especially nice for a long layover."
Cons: "The ticket was cheap because of very long layovers"
Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"
Cons: "They knew we would never make the connection flight and still they told us it will be fine after adding a stop which changes the schedules. When we arrived the connection plane was still there but we were never registered on it. I will ask for compensations even if I have to take a lawyer."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Half an hour delay"
Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"
Pros: "I am looking for something good put didn’t find Sorry"
Cons: "The departure time should be on time Our flight was delayed more than one hour"
Cons: "Really, nothing"
Pros: "It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old."
Cons: "The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers."
Pros: "Emirates is a top airline for comfort and extras. Even on short flights customers are treated well."
Cons: "No suggestions"
Pros: "Emirates is the best airline I have traveled with. The Dubai Lounge and general service is just outstanding"
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "They ran out of chicken for the back part of the plane so we all had salmon"
Cons: "So many people were ill near me and the 14 hours of journey was crazy with such curcumstances around you.Those people should not have allowed to board"
Pros: "Seats weren’t all that comfortable."
Cons: "Service and meals were good."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing bad"
Pros: "Outstanding and very helpful service"
Pros: "Business class makes the entire trip much more comfortable."
Cons: "no negatives"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."
Cons: "Airplane to late"
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment was amazing The boarding process was very seamless Everything was done on time"
Cons: "Honestly, nothing. I was beyond impressed."
Pros: "A bit of delay, high traffic. New MCT airport is much better than before."
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian). Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "Booked a window seat and luckily the middle seat wasn’t taken. I was able to fade in and out of sleep ... much needed!"
Cons: "Wish I could afford to upgrade for a proper sleep!"
Cons: "Still flying . I lost my first hotel night what to doooo"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
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: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR. Only good thing was that Emirates gave me a boarding pass to a later flight and a meal voucher that was accepted with bad grace by the barista at terminal B Costas. Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"
Pros: "I forgot my laptop in the flight and called almost inertial but could not find it yet."
Pros: "Everything was well done! Great customer service."
Pros: "Every thing about Emirates was first class Including the CREW!!"
Cons: "It was a bit too cold but it did get better afterwards"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable for a transatlantic flight"
Pros: "I have travelled with various airlines over Atlantoc and Pacific none of them I found comfortable as Emirates. The reason I guess is, "Emirates delivers more for ever service" Good work..."
Cons: "The departure time should be more comfortable"
Pros: "I can't believe how nice this was for getting such a good price. Good space, Tons of movies, super attentive staff."
Pros: "It was ok, average."
Cons: "The reclining function of my seat was broken, smaller seats and too high air conditioning."
Pros: "THE ICE"
Cons: "Luggage handling for overwait hand luggages"
Pros: "Newer plane. Good options for entertainment."
Cons: "Again NOT impressed with busing out to plane and hiking up steep set of stairs in the heat of the day in Dubai. The bus ride was long and there were few seats for elderly, disabled, moms holding kids, etc."
Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."
Cons: "Sat next to a man who smelled terribly like alcohol. He then ordered and was served a small bottle of wine... I'm not sure he should have been allowed to board or served more alcohol. He was not causing any disturbance, mostly slept, but smelled awful I had to turn my head the other way and would have liked to move seats."
Pros: "The staff is super friendly and professional."
Cons: "I paid for an assigned window seat (18K) at the front of the plane. However when I arrived to my seat I was told that there is a handicap person in my room and I can't sit there and was offered a seat in the back of the plane. Yes of course I understand and wouldn't want to move a handicap person to get to my seat but at the same time I believe the seat assignment fee which I paid in advance should be refunded."
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: "Everything i mean whats there not to like ?"
Cons: "Due to visa processing delays I couldn't return back"
Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"
Pros: "Relaxing on time flight.."
Cons: "Food was bad... Before it used to be really good..."
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "I liked the service, food and the crews behavior"
Cons: "The only thing that I didn't like was I was told in the office that you will get free hotel room unfortunately when I arrived to Dubai they told me that I'm not in the system and you have to pay"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business"
Cons: "You did not consult me first and I was traveling with a friend"
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
Pros: "Flight attendants were patient and kind despite tension between passengers due to lack of overhead space."
Cons: "Very rough flight and every set of earphones were defective."
Cons: "When we landed we had to take the bus"
