Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Very polite & helpful crew & agents.... both at Dhaka Airport & the flight. Conditions to work in Dhaka Airport are difficult & yet your ground personnel were calm & helpful with a smile on their faces!"
Cons: "Very little isle space!!! Now I know how sardines are packed!! Did you put in more seats? Seems like you have!! With no consideration for the simple, basic comfort of your passengers!! Just because most of the passengers were Bangladeshis you DID NOT have to serve only what was a very poor excuse of Bengali food!! A choice or better quality food would have been appreciated!!"
Cons: "The flight attendances were rude. Lot of mosquitoes inside the aircraft. Mosquitoes were every where. The aircraft were dirty and did not clean. under the seat trash, passenger food table was dirty, I had to ask crew member for napkin to clean. I would not recommend any one to take emirates. certainly i would not fly emirates again."

Pros: "Everything. The service, food, entertainment. This airline is phenomenal!"
Pros: "Timeliness, behavior of crew. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Food quality, seat sizes, comfort of the seats is not good. There were belligerent passengers that kept on drinking alcohol on the flight and even lit up a cigarette in the restroom. The persons involved should have been arrested for causing a disturbance on the flight."

Pros: "Nice food. Fast boarding. Liked the small bag with travel products."

Pros: "Reservation and boarding process are good. The condition of the aircraft is excellent. Onboard service is also good."
Cons: "The taste of food served was far below standard. I had hard time eating their food. Emirates used to serve better food in the past but in recent time the quality has worsen."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly and fast when you turn on the help sig."
Cons: "I can't handle any kind of spicness in my food. I understand you guys try to give out food similar to the place your visiting, but I wish you guys gave out an option of non spicy food just like you do for vegetarians. I would also like to suggest that your crew members come more frequently to give out water. And the last thing I want to say is the most important, Boarding the plane was such a hassle. I would like to suggest that a crew member should come out and organize the way people are going to be boarding. They can say something like, "seats # A-C can you place stand on the left and Busniness Class on the right" instead of having everyone crowd to the front and be pushing each other. Or have those rope lines like they do at banks and make the people form a line."
Pros: "I enjoyed excellent service of this airline"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth as was finding my luggage after arriving in NYC."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work for about an hour and they had to fix it. It took the crew a while to start troubleshooting it. A few people had to complain before they did anything. The quality of the food on Emirates has greatly decreased recently. Their wifi on flight is terribly slow and they require you to pay $1 for it."
Cons: "In my flight from Milan (MXP) to New York (JFK), I had a seat on 63C (aisle seat). A woman seating on my sided asked me to change my seat with her son who was on 74F (middle seat). I said no, because it would be a seat several rows back an in the middle. I had paid more to have the aisle seat, so it did not make any sense to change to a middle seat. However, some minutes later, an Emirates employee asked me again if I could change the seats. He created such an awkward situation, that it was impossible to do not change to the other seat. I tried to argument that he was giving me no other option, but to accept the change. In summary, I had a good seat due to the higher fee that I had paid, but I was transferred to the back in a middle seat. I thought Emirates was a serious company. As I told their employee, I do not plain to fly with them anymore."
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."
Cons: "Crews were rude"
Pros: "Check-in counter associate was very rude and the wait was too long"
Cons: "The wait and the treatment without any greetings or respect"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Food is so bad The crews they didn't helps also I ordered to change my food he ignored me and the seat is not comfort."

Cons: "The bus connection from runway to dubai airport wasn't comfortable. It took 40 mins to get to the airport and still I didn't have a good support to hang onto during the journey (I was standing)."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and plenty of entertainment available. Service is prompt and friendly."
Pros: "Newer airplane. Non stop service to Dubai."
Cons: "Some of the cabin crew members were rude and didn't care much about good customer service."
Pros: "The crew on the Emirates flight was really professional and courteous going to India and coming back. The food was lacking a bit of flavor but overall it was good. The entertainment on the flight was amazing!! However, the monitor had to be restarted a few times due to technical issues. But I really liked my flight and will definitely travel again with Emirates."
Cons: "Now to the issues. The flight from New York to Boston sucked. Jet Blue couldnt find our reservations and we were instructed to go to the Emirates Terminal. So we had to take our luggage (around 50 pounds each), run to the Airtran, board the Airtran, go to the next Terminal. The Emirates counter was closed and we had to go back to the Jet Blue counter and magically found our reservation. They were unapologetic and annoyed that we were asking them too many questions. But overall, the experience with Emirates was good."
Cons: "Lost my bag and charged me for it. Never fly with them. Their Dubai staff is incompetent"
Pros: "the plane and the crew were great"
Cons: "There is really no vegan food on board in spite of my advance request. The transfer to T2 experience at AUH is not good and when you get there the lounge and the cafe are closed. The entertainment system has extremely limited choice/variety."

Cons: "Nothing. Every thing excellent"
Pros: "I liked all from salutation at boarding desk to leaving the air craft."
Cons: "Better food and drinks could have been served."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Departured 40 min later while we were seated waiting on the aircraft. It was also really hot. Then, before landing, had to circle over the airport half hour because did not have space to park."
Cons: "My ticket weas rescheduled through Kayak and it was showing updates on kayak apps. Unfortunately, at airport Biman could not find my ticket and informed me that it got blocked. I had to pay $80 to activate the ticket."
Pros: "Cabin staff were good seats reclined aeroplane was pretty new"
Cons: "Flight delayed 8 + hours, no information given inflight English entertainment was a joke"
Pros: "Overall process was helpful. Assistance at airport was good."

Cons: "The cabin crew were rushing & the flight was delayed"
Pros: "It's a short flight but really nice to get a meal. Staff were friendly and plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Line ups a check in counters are not easy to navigate. Plane also left delayed and didn't even start boarding until 10 minutes before departure time."
Cons: "Male Cabin crew were very dismissive and not helpful. I asked to borrow a pen 2 times and was ignored, then the gentleman in front of me asked and was given a pen. Incredible! I asked for water, received a strange look and was given nothing. I heard the attendant speak English so I know he understood me. overall service was terrible."
Pros: "The flights were to full so seating was easy and the cost was low."
Cons: "Flights outbound and inbound were late. Outbound was re-scheduled six late. Inbound was two hours late getting out. But the flight were to full so seating was easy. The food they served is what they make jobs about - it was terrible."
Cons: "Flight was three hours late, worse things is flight attendant said no drinking water available only juice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by ~3 hours due to runway closure. Missed connecting flight from Kolkata, and Biman Bangladesh didn't take any responsibility."
Pros: "The price. Biman Bangladesh offers the best fares which is the only reason anyone would choose to fly with them."
Cons: "Biman bangladesh airlines are consistently late. Almost all of their employees display laziness. Check-in and boarding are never easy or pleasant."
Cons: "Shaking a lots... Snacks are too poor..."
Cons: "The flight was massively delayed."
Pros: "On time service and excellent quick 30 min flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants needs to smile little more."
Pros: "Meal and snack was tasty and piping hot. Plane was brand new 737-800 in great shape. Entertainment system worked as described although there were some glitches with movie playback and the Moving Map program. The flight departed BKK on time! Crew were pro and attentive."
Cons: "Bit of a hard landing in Dhaka, but maybe that's how the pilots have to do it?"
Pros: "The lunch was fresh and very tasty. The personal entertainment system worked well and there was a good variety of programmes. The plane itself was a brand new Boeing 737-800 and was in very nice shape. The crew announcements were consistent and thoughtful."
Cons: "The service was okay. Not great, but satisfactory. The flight departed 45 minutes later than scheduled time. This seems to be the rule rather than the exception. Not sure if this is a Dhaka Airport problem or a Biman problem. Or a bit of both. The landing in Bkk was hard. The pilot pulled the brakes quickly and forcefully immediately after landing. Not sure why."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, pretty dated interior."
Pros: "Station manager, Mr. Habibur Rahman was very helpful to reschedule ticket. He is very cordial and cooperative. We wish BG has more people like him. Cabin Crew Kobita and Taslim was good and Captain Enam is the best. Cabin was clrean."
Cons: "Inside temperature was very cold and there was not enough blanket for the passengers. But Ms. Kobita was apologing on behalf of BG. Kualampur BG staff did not search much and said no seat availavle on 27 February. But station master Habibur Rahman helped us get three seats. When we were in the plane we saw one fourth seat was empty."
Pros: "We hit bad turbulence just up from Calcutta. But the pilot used his skills to get us to a new altitude and the flight smoothed out. Kudos to the captain and his crew. Good job.....................I don't like that we paid good money for the flight and flew on a Bombardier Dash-8 rather than a Boeing 737-800 like on the way to Calcutta."
Cons: "Snack was really bad (white bread, mystery filling) and some dry cake. They could do better. Maybe shingara or chanachur, or even peanuts. Or even potato chips.............I liked that the flight departed on time."
Pros: "The crew were very responsive, very willing to attend to our requests. The equipment were in very good shape, and working as expected."
Pros: "- The entertainment/distraction module was modern and functioning. Its UI (User Interface) was excellent. There was even a USB port, great for looking at images. The movies available were up-to-date. - The aircraft, a Boeing 737-800, was fresh off the assembly line. It even had that new-airplane smell. None of the seats were busted. Yet."
Cons: "- Mosquitoes infested the jet bridge and the plane. Never seen anything like it. While that was bad enough, the crew began spraying a toxic knock-down cocktail over our heads. The fellow sitting next to me, an Indian, said 'This would never happen in India. People would refuse to fly until the problem was resolved. In India we have standards.' I said 'That's all well and good, but we're not in India. We're in Bangladesh, and people have become inured to unpleasantness. Even me.' Now, my aim's not to pick on Biman. Perhaps the mosquito problem is Dhaka Airport's responsibility and they've clearly dropped the ball. But c'mon, spraying a poisonous mosquito killer INSIDE the cabin filled with passengers? Get real. - The hard and fast landing in Kolkata. Felt like we were hitting the runway too fast. There was a slight bounce. It took a while for the reverse thrusters and brakes to come on. Sure, I'm not a pilot, and to a pilot perhaps this landing was totally normal and within protocol. As a passenger though, I was a bit spooked. I thought 'Gee, I hope this is a looong runway.' Also, the pilot kept saying 'Inshallah.' Inshallah this, Inshallah that. Inshallah translates roughly to 'God willing.' Faith is a personal thing and to each their own. However, I want to have faith that this plane's going to land safely based on the pilot's skill, not on God's will. - The meal. More of a snack, really, and that's OK given the short flight. But the Wonder Bread mystery meat sandwich was disappointing and totally unnecessary. Biman should serve tasty Bangladeshi snacks (chanachur, jhal muri, phuchka, shingara, etc.) rather than poor attempts at Western food -- especially if Biman wants to be taken seriously as the pride of Bangladesh's skies. The dislikes far outweigh the likes this time round. We'll seriously contemplate flying Biman again."
Pros: "Food provided on plane and dinner and breakfast included at Dhaka airport in transit area. If you have a visa you can stay in a hotel but I didn't want to pay for the visa on arrival."
Cons: "Airport is full of mosquitoes"
Pros: "The cabin crew were inattentive. Call buttons went unanswered or were deliberately left. The service was basic. The crew allowed economy class passengers to continuously use our business passengers toilets and spaces, frequenting my space which was an annoyance. The toilet I used were a total wreck with cabinet panel doors left open. On a second visit it was all too apparent that someone had urinated all over the commode and the open panel door. Ridiculous is an understatement ! Not enough due courtesy or cooperation was extended to us the business class passengers when we were trying to stow away our hand luggage. To serve a plate of open mixed nuts then take off is a nonsense as I saw how those plates slid off and caused messes on passengers within my view. The business class seating did not recline enough. The entertainment on offer was totally substandard for the well travelled international passenger whom is woed by other carriers. On my return trip there was no entertainment at all on offer, very strange. Biman is a joke !!! The very dated aircraft interior left everything to be desired. I have deliberately kept many snapshots as evidence. Business class passengers pay that extra for a reason. The whole compliment of passengers for the entite plane were boarded and unboarded through our cabin areas, totally unacceptable and unjustified. The time I tried to purchase two on board duty free items, surprise surprise, yet again was told some nonsense and it was yet again another negative an experience. So overall, I will endeavour never ever to make the mistake of flying with any such substandard an airline whom a-z seem to be either be guided by or employ "clowns" whom are not in touch with the realities and ongoing standards being maintained by other carriers."
Pros: "For supposedly business class, the biman experience was SUB-standard. Those with authority to bring about changes to improve standards, must act soon. Study and implement how competitors are conducting themselves a to z, apart from the space of my seating, all else failed......from the greet, the assistance in storing hand luggage, to the food served and the.dared "entertainment" on offer. ALL need to improve!!!"
Pros: "Nice companion in seat next to me"
Cons: "Dreadful food in business for a dinner flight. Plastic wrapped pieces of white bread with mysterious 3 mm thick substance inside. Pilot apparently aborted landing and did a go around with 45 degree steep turn with extreme nose up attitude. Wow. No explanation of any kind. Seats are worn out in business class. Strong cigarette smoke like stink in cabin. Apparently results from heating elements in oven. Flight staff sprays fumigation bomb inside cabin. Mosquitoes in cabin were robust and impossible to kill. They seem to like."
