Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates

Cons: train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie

BEY
Okay 5.3

Pros: I was very late and the gate was closed but the staff helped me make it on time.

Cons: I booked on Emirates and on my way back I flew with Fly Dubai it wasn’t specified in the ticket. There were no pillows, no covers and I was freezing! No entertainment it is a downgrade from Emirates. At least the ticket should have costed less.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
