Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."

Cons: "The fact there are many airlines which can't even get close to what JAL can offer and even if they try, employees won't be able to match it because of the cultural differences. Makes me sad that other airlines (I won't name them) can still be in business... they need to fly JL9 once and hope they understand."

Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr."

Cons: "The food is getting terrible. They had better food a year ago."

Pros: "fine food, the pilot handled a typhoon like a pro"

Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."

Pros: "The crew were the only enjoyable part of this flight. They were helpful and nice."
Cons: "the food. they tasted like left over of left over."

Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and headphone jacks on the end of the arm rest (I kept knocking mine out when I moved in my seat)."

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Great experience all together"

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic patient & I couldn’t get my aisle seat so, I had to wake up my both side passenger too often. Missing my Hindi movies."

Cons: "They need some vegetarian options for meals."

Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"

Pros: "The seat I selected was the first row of regular economy. It had extra legroom and received excellent attention by the staff for drinks. The arline served 3 meals and snacks on the flight. I felt like I was eating the entire trip. :)"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."

Pros: "I liked the way the pilot talked to us and let us know what was going on and still got us there on time even though our departure was slightly delayed."
Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."

Pros: "The person who checked me in at ORD found me an alternative aisle seat with an unoccupied seat next to me. Great benefit for a 12+ hour flight. Very thoughtful."

Pros: "It was fast and the crew got right to it as far as take off and getting home."

Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."

Pros: "The most impressive is consistenty great service from check in, in the air and online costumer service.. they are very pleasant , humble and genuine, always trying giving what you need."

Pros: "Smooth , professional crew and their hospitality and especially their smile and attention to passengers is unparalleled."

Cons: "The thing I didn't like it was when I was in Tokyo I stayed overnight I didn't know what I expected for first timer like me I wish they give me some kind of a voucher food, nothing big but I really like in Tokyo though thanks"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hours! I had to make other arraignments so I wouldn't miss my conference. I lost money because of the great delayed."

Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service."

Pros: "The food they served was very unique and will ready you for a trip in Japan ( if that is the root you are taking it for) The entertainment options were overwhelming ( movies, games, and anime)"

Pros: "Very comfortable. Lots of room, wonderful crew."

Pros: "staff was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "movies were not sp good"

Cons: "Headset wasn't working propperly."

Pros: "Food was delicious, crew was very nice and attentive. Plane was very new and clean"
Cons: "Delay on tarmack at airport. No fault of ANA"

Pros: "Everything accept the food selection."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had more selection of food, it's a minor issue and what do you expect if you know you're flying on a Japan airline. I just wish they would have a little more selection gear toward American food. :-)"

Pros: "Staff polite ,speedy"
Cons: "Had to get down to ground floor, walk outside, take a packed bus, wait on Tarmac while Korean air took off, waited some more to be safe, then climbed the stairs to a 787. The seats in economic are very uncomfortable, tortuous for seven hrs."

Pros: "Staff pleasant"
Cons: "Entertainment could be improved"

Pros: "Polite and considerate crews Food is good. Crews are always smiling."
Cons: "No boarding zone? Everyone just swirm up and line up for the shuttle. No order even though there are guidance."

Cons: "I have encountered missing documents before departure in Singapore to KL. The check in crews very helpful, their knowledge to assist me boarding smoothly. My appreciation towards all crews who have helped me this morning ( SQ106) Big THANK YOU to you ALL."

Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."

Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and straightforward, the seats were comfortable and had individual entertainment screens, the crew was very polite and helpful. For meals, everyone was given a printed menu at the start of the flight so that meal options could be easily made."
Cons: "My only complaint is that I would have liked to see more frequent offers for water refills during the flight, since water cups are so small and staying well hydrated on flights is difficult but essential."

Pros: "What can I Say. It's Singapore Airlines"

Pros: "Great seating"
Cons: "Free internet in long flights"

Pros: "Very cramped seats"

Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"

Cons: "I think the food in our flight was not that good.."

Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Luggages did not arrive with the flight as it should be. It got lost in Sydney from Queenstown on flight SQ 6683 operated by Virgin Australia (VA 162)."

Pros: "Despite being a very late flight at 11 pm, the crew was courteous but not over the top, when all the passengers wanted to catch some sleep"
Cons: "Lufthansa's short haul slim line seats become uncomfortable after 1.5 hours"

Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"

Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."

Cons: "I love the foods in Hongkong, so many varieties . Price wise is affordable."

Pros: "Very comfortable. best airline I flew on overall and was first time ."
Cons: "Charges for extra bag was steep- $150. Location at LAX airport is far. While nice to have many options for meal but did not low-carb so I only ate half my food"

Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."

Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"

Pros: "Flight crew great"

Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Boarding a mess, 30% boarded as "business". Food terrible. Entertainment system doesn't work on a lot of seats as plane is very old. Cabin crew not able to handle the passengers, delayed in every aspect and forget to serve passengers. Shitty flight and service."

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."

Pros: "easy check in process and the crew was awesome. friendly and attentive to all passengers. great food as well."

Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"

Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Pros: "Everyone was cold asking for blankets it was freezing on that plane only major complaint, I love the airlines, the flight attendants are lovely and gracious, they really do try. Such a nice treat after flying United airlines all year!"
Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"

Pros: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."

Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"
Cons: "No working seat audio"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Put some natural spray in the washroom for guests to kill their odor. I was the lucky one sitting outside the washrooms."

Pros: "the flight time was quick , by the time you took off you practically were preparing for landing"
Cons: "nothing disappointing"

Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."

Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"

Pros: "Flight Delhi to Singapore was uncomfortable. Flight to SFWas very comfortable. Roomy seats. Good service."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "the gates the time intervals and the connections..."

Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"

Pros: "Singapore is #1 in my books. So glad I could get on their airline. The flight was super. The economy cabin was really nice and comfortable. I especially liked all the adapter plug outlets to power my equipment. I just can’t say enough good things about the cabin crew. The Stewardess were very attractive in their uniforms and make-up, not like the old maids United and American has. The cabin crew were extremely helpful and nice. The service was impeccable. The meals were actually pretty good. Course all the alcoholic drinks available was nice. A person could get wiped out pretty easy if not drink responsibly. But not a good idea to drink much cause of the aftereffects after the flight."
Cons: "The headset ear plugs left a lot to be desired. I need to bring my own good set to enjoy the vast selection of music and shows available. My number 1 complaint was the outside row seat armrests would not move up. This makes getting out of the seat into the isle much more difficult than it has to be. Why does it have to be stationary?"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"

Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."

"Very good service, all were ok/excellent"

"Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport."

"Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If the police and security in the airport respect the people more!"

Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."

Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"

Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."
Cons: "Same advertisements before each movie could play were annoying to me."

Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"

Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."

Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Cons: "Few selection of food."

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Cons: "The delay was awful Al marjan business class lounge in doha don't have good quiet room bed for sleeping"

Pros: "The seats were a bit roomier and more comfortable than any other plane I have been on. There was a good variety in entertainment selection on the individual screens. The stewardesses were lovely and attentive. Food was delicious and balanced and was served with real silverware."

Pros: "Crew were super nice, a lot of entertainment varieties"
Cons: "That I had to deal with some rude local officers at the airport, one of them was Qatar airline employee, 3 were security and immigration staff. They ruined my trip with thier rudeness."

Pros: "Smooth flight, staff very attentive, lots of great new movies to watch from"
Cons: "Staff kept reaching past me to shut my window without asking me first. Very rude."

Pros: "The crew we're good"

Cons: "Very less leg room"

Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight 1 1/2 hours. Other than that, the flight was good."

Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"
Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class!"

Pros: "The staff were very attentive and polite at all times!"

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "comfortable seats and entertainment system"
Cons: "the food wasn't so good and I expected more from an Emirates flight"

Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Excellent food and serving"

Pros: "Good flight and on time."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Peanuts !! Ban them please"

Pros: "The food and the entertainment was great! Very comfortable seats."

Cons: "More you to stretch out"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Amazing flight to travel for long travel! Relaxing! Easy to adjust in the whole flight! Crew was giving an awesome service!!"

Pros: "Perfect"

Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"

Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."

Pros: "I slept well since I updated to business class."
Cons: "Service was awfull. Noticed the air hostesses showed discrimination while serving meals and attending the passengers like me. I had a very positive experience in the past but not on this trip."

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."

Cons: "I have no space for my legs ..i have 1.97 cm ..other things are excellent"

Pros: "customercare was good. Thank you."

Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "Not enough storage space. Beds not the most comfortable. No wi-fi."

Pros: "The crew and overall experience was great. Comfortable travel conditions and crew was very responsive and proactive in comfort."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, nothing special."

Pros: "excellent services thanks"
Cons: "services provided to impaired handicap persons ,need improvement thanks"

Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."

Pros: "Very nice check in, because the people weren't rude. They accepted my luggage and gave me my passes."

Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent entertainment"

Cons: "Checkin process takes long"

Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."

Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."

Pros: "The crew could not tell if the meal. Is nut free. Management should make sure crew know ingredients of meals. Or caterers should specify to aireline and crew members of meals contents."

Cons: "The temperature was set too high"

Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."

Pros: "Also spacious even though the plane was smaller than the NY to Dubai plane."
Cons: "The flight wasn't as nice as the flight from NY to Dubai. I guess it's because the plane was older."

Pros: "The Airport handling staff I happen to deal with in Chicago and Dubai were very courtios and helpful . Same goes with the in flight crew ....too good ."
Cons: "There's nothing I can think of EXCEPT , they did not give disembarkation cards to fill in the aircraft befitting landing which caused everyone lot of inconvenience after landing at Hyderabad airport ."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
