The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."
Pros: "Courtesy and thoughtful services throughout the flight More leg room and better food than typical American Airlines’ economy"

Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."

Cons: "The only downside was the long layover (7.5 hrs) in Narita airport."

Cons: "Because it is Japan Airlines, the food is authentically Japanese. Unlike US based international flights, they only serve one meal with zero alternatives."
Pros: "Good quality food. Between-meal snacks. Great selection of media entertainment. Convenient power available at each seat including USB right in front of you. Many handy pockets in front of you for storing various items."

Pros: "Excellent service overall"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Great airline great service. Haihly recommended"
Pros: "The crew Service"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people.

Pros: "Airline crew was super nice and helpful, attentive, and the plane was very clean."

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Cons: "The main entree was not very good."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very friendly and polite. The seats in economy are generous and as comfortable as they could be in economy on a 10 hour flight. The two meals provided were pretty good for food served on an airplane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Best R/T I have had, service to food to cleanliness."
Cons: "All passengers were onboard but the captain said that we need to go out and change to another airplane at different gate too (note: the changes made after passengers on board)"
Pros: "The food was delicious and interesting. Also, the flight crew allowed me to sleep through the rest of the night after dinner service was complete."

Cons: "Passengers in front alway lowered their seats and the amount of space to move for someone over 6 feet made the flight uncomfortable. the woman in front of me was short too so I did not understand her need to push her seat back. The seats should not the ability to be lowered to the extent they were. It makes for an uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "The willingness to provide a better quality service by the entire cabin crew and improved food quality."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"
Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."
Cons: "For better leg room in business class go for the bulkhead seats"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous, went above and beyond."
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"
Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"
Pros: "Crew were attentive and courteous, food and beverage choices were great; would definitely fly with SA again."
Cons: "None that I can think of"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."
Cons: "Crew woke me up from deep sleep to raise seatback for meal service. Sleep versus food?? Should prioritise sleep every time on night flights."
Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
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"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."
Pros: "The staff was very responsive and the food was great. Ground staff in SIngapore helped me to modify the tickets due to us missing our connection to Phuket. Very helpful. Irene at the transfer desk was an excellent manager. The wheel chair staff was excellent all through."
Cons: "It would be great it the seats were leather so that plane would feel more cleaner."
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."

Pros: "The wonderfully kind and friendly air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "spicy chicken too spicy!"
Pros: "On time. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Old TV screen that was difficult to see. Looked like it was from 1990. Limited movie selection."
Pros: "New plane"

Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"

Cons: "Food was ok, not super high quality."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nada"
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "nice food, plenty of water, good service, quite comfortable & on board wifi if you need it"
Pros: "This was probably the best check-in I had. The ground attendant was extremely friendly and helpful. She kindly moved me to the exit seat and made sure I was sitting in aisle seats for the rest of my three flights. All until boarding the process was quick and breezy. In flight, the attendants were professional and friendly. Always smiling and helpful. The entertainment section and food were superb."
Cons: "The only negative thing was that boarding of this flight was late and the gates were switched about 40 minutes before boarding. This was due to the fact that the plane arrived a bit late. None the less, we arrived to Singapore on time and everyone made their flights."
Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."
Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"
Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "services was good"
Cons: "I Hate Hate Hate the setup of the business class cabin - you face each other, no privacy, you look at other people feet all flight, cant look out the window, horrible!!"
Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good choice of movies"
Cons: "Would have been nice to get offered beverages more often. Was hard to get water as much as I needed without disrupting my fellow seat mates."
Pros: "Emirates is my airline of choice. They do everything well."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "flight left very late. couldnt make up time on the way. had to struggle to make it to the connection."
Pros: "The crew was just fine."
Cons: "Checking on the cleanliness of the toilets frequently"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and comfortable. Ample room for the long flight."
Cons: "Desert option: warm cookies"
Cons: "In most cases i was so disappointed to be allowed only 1 lugage of 50lb while i was supposed to be allowed 2 50lb of bags,i had to pay 275$ for the extra luggage,very disappointed as i was not expect that to happen,you guys made me look ashamed infront of people as i had to borrow money to pay for"
Pros: "Crew was generally very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."
Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."
Cons: "The food is not good. I chose chicken but unfortunately no chicken only small mashed potatoes and gravy and when I asked for another one the crew said no more chicken lol.So I skipped 1 meal"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Fast professional and courteous. The flight wasn’t full so there was plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval process is slower than normal. The airplane food was well, airplane food bland low quality."
Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Cons: "The flight fid not depart on time and therefore I missed the connecting flight. Had to spend a day in a hotel until the next connecting flight."
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."
Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."
Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."
Pros: "Service courtesy helpfully"
Cons: "I could not get pure vegetarian food as i am a strict vegetarian"
Pros: "I liked most of the food service. Not breakfast."
Cons: "Cramped seating on 1st flight. High business class fares."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "There was a hair in my food. Seats 46a and 46b were very constricting, leaving it very uncomfortable for sitting."
Cons: "Dubai to blre flight was better than IAD to Dubai as there was a chewing gum stuck over the window's edge next to my seat."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Less attention to my two kids"
Pros: "The outstanding service of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, well mannered"
Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."
Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent. The entertainment system and seat amenities are top notch - large screen, great selections, power sources, remote control (cabled). I was so impressed I planned to join their frequent flyer program (*** but see review of second leg - Dubai to Manila *** )."
Cons: "Was served the wrong meal even though I double-checked with the FA."
Pros: "The food was horrible. We were served almost an hour late after everyone and not given and option to select our food. I would like some kind of response from the airline service on this."
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."
Pros: "The 380 is a great plane, the quiet and comfort."
Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."
Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly. Passengers were not even allowed to carry out a basic conversation near the restrooms at the back of the plane without being shushed left and right from cabin crew in their private quarters and other crew up the stairs."
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."
Cons: "Connection was too short and airport too big. I had to literally run through the terminal and my bags didn't make the flight. Window seats on A380 are too far from window to sleep comfortably."
Pros: "Very comfortable pod."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."
Pros: "I’m very disappointed by the supervisor treatment at the time I was checking in and weighing my luggage. It is very frustrating to see that I was forced to pay US$ 175 for an excess of only 9 Kg. Even after I told him that my other luggage didn’t have the maximum weight he insisted either to throw away my items or pay the amount. The supervisor was ready to either not let to board the flight or leave my luggage. I could have appreciated if either charged only extra 9kgs or move the excess volume to check in luggage that was not full. The supervisor was not ready to listen and he constantly treats me in a disrespectful manner. Given to the mistreatments I had I have vows not to travel with Emirates anymore and also advise my friends and colleagues not to use it. I hope you will use this feedback to improve your customers services."
Pros: "Liked the Customer Service, Flight, neatness, entertainment and food"

Only had fish option for food. I am allergic to fish and there was no veg option

Flight was delayed at IAD Washington. Passengers were anxious as there was delay announcing about it.

The best, Qatar Airways is incompatible

Better food & beverage required

Pros: "Very nice and accommodating crew!"
Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."
Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."
Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"
Pros: "The customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."
Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."
Pros: "All the crews are awesome and very helpful, especially to the parents with young kid."

Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."
Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."
Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"
Pros: "Excellent seats..."
Pros: "On screen entertainment"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food"
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"
Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"
Pros: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Cons: "Food was a bit dry"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"
Cons: "The seats were cramped"
Pros: "The in flight service was great.. Crew was excellent."
Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."
Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Cons: "Service,"
Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
