Pros: "Emirates is a top airline for comfort and extras. Even on short flights customers are treated well."
Cons: "No suggestions"

Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."
Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."
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."

Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."

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

Cons: "I shouldn't be forced to change my seat just because a hostess told me to then she was rude to me because I didn't then I finally changed my seat and she was ok- I don't think this is appropriate"
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Can definitely see why the company gets such high ratings. Crew very efficient and accommodating. Food was better than I expected. Especially the smoked chicken salad.

Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Cons: "Checkin process takes long"
Pros: "The service, entertainment and food were all excellent."
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."
Cons: "Was not able to get preferred choice of meal due to insufficient availability."
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."
Cons: "Flight wasn't booked, so people scrambled to take over middle sections. If you weren't in middle you were somewhat in a comfort trouble."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very patient and attentive. The in-flight entertainment was very diverse and equipment for the most part was in good working condition."
Cons: "I liked everything. One of the connection boarding calls was a little disorganized but I do not think it was Emirates fault necessarily."
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"
Pros: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Flight take off was delayed by almost an hour."
Pros: "Crew and hospitality"
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."

Pros: "Very well organized and efficient. Very friendly staff. Great service."
Cons: "I paid for internet which constantly disconnected. Waste of money."
Pros: "Legroom Entertainment Airport onboarding exp"
Cons: "- horrible crew, many crew members were just rude to many passengers. Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"
Pros: "Very good vegetarian option, the crew dealt with a difficult patron quite well."
Cons: "Since we boarded so early and the process was long, I was lulled into a false happiness that I had a row to myself that ended up being filled at the last second before the doors closed."
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "There was not enough non veg food onboard and no choices. Everyone was served vegetarian towards the end. They served lunch in the beginning of the flight and then I was literally starving after 5 or 6 hours until a fellow passenger told me they had some snacks at the back. There was no communication on that."
Pros: "Every thing is good inspite of food"
Cons: "Cheep quality of food"

Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."

Pros: "Free movies and polite hostesses and service"
Cons: "Free internet"
Pros: "1) the flight was not full which was a big plus 2) the universal charging at the seat, I didn't need a converter."
Cons: "1) The sinks in 4 bathrooms were broken. People were still using the bathrooms although there was no sink. So people were not washing their hands which is unsanitary. 2) the food was not very good, nor the timing of it. Also sandwiches in plastic wrapping were distributed during sleeping hours and that was very disruptive. 3) the plane was older. 4) the flight was very expensive so I expected 5 star features and comfort, but it was only a 3 star for me."

Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"
Cons: "When there is a connecting flight from Domestic to international, Domestic is letting us in without any restrictions on Cabin luggage but in middle of journey in Chicago they have really troubled all the passengers, mainly they haven't checked the baggage's untill we have boarded the flight though everyone is there before 2 hrs of the and i personally asked they if my bags needs any new tags but just before they pulled everyone from the line and screwed us. which is really bad."

Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for too long a flight. Boarding took forever."
Pros: "All seats had power outlets"
Cons: "Plane was older than expected. Food/service was nothing exceptional."
Pros: "We boarded etihad for the first time and the experience was not good at all. Have two major complaints. The boarding area was very strict with the carry on laggage items size. My wife and I have the carry on bags, with which we boarded multiple domestic and international flights and never got a complaint from any carrier, but to my surprise, etihad staff mentioned that my bang is over sized in length and width and I need to check in. And second complaint is on Food. We selected Hindu meal, and the food was not good in taste and the options as well. We felt Air India, Qatar, emirates, Cathe Pacefic etc were better comparatively than Etihad. Staff were all good and supportive all the time."
Cons: "Food Boarding"
Pros: "Food, In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Etihad has the most ridiculous carry on baggage policy. They have this cage within which your carry on should fit in. If it does not then you have to pay $320 to check in the bag which I was forced to pay. Never seen any airline doing such a shitty thing and overcharging. Also, I think they turned the AC off during the flight and I was fanning myself for the entire 14 hour duration of the trip. WTF??"
Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."
Cons: "I was assigned a middle seat next to a obese person. It was very unpleasant 13 hours, and the airlines could have moved one of us."
Cons: "Flight attendant could have cared less about being there. lol"
Pros: "The plane was specious but the crew needs to improve their service ."
Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."
Pros: "I was pained to see so many passengers hassled at checking time by the crew. When carry luggage with same dimensions was allowed on onward journey how can it be oversized on the return journey? I was asked to refer the website for dimensions and tod that Ethihad does not use standard carry on baggage size. Some passengers were forced to buy new carry on luggage at the airport. It is pathetic service in my opinion because the airline put so many elderly passengers with no knowledge of English to a lot of heardship."
Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"
Pros: "Very professional but efficient."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Pros: "Friendly staff, legroom was OK, American's gates at ORD were fairly clean."
Cons: "Great big stain on the carpet around the end of the gates looked pretty bad."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"
Cons: "Food was bad. Seats were not comfortable especially for such a long flight"
Cons: "It seems Etihad hired a lot of beauties without the brain. The crew on this flight knew nothing about customer service. I had my face mask on displaying the side that states "please wake me up for meals" and of course I was not. Hours later, I woke up starving and had to go to back of the cabin to pick up a food tray since no one bothered to answer the call light. After finishing my meal, I pushed the call button 5x and no one came to collect the tray. I waved at an attendant 2x and she replied, "I'll pick it up on my way back" but she never came back. 3 HOURS LATER!!! My food tray full of waste was still sitting in front of me. At that point, the gentleman sitting in the aisle seat woke up, saw the tray still in front and he got very upset. He stopped a random attendant walking down the aisle and requested tray must picked right now! The attendant then apologize and was shocked herself that the tray sat on my table for 3 HOURS! In addition to this, the seats in the economy class were so tightly compacted and uncomfortable for a 13 hours flight. One could barely move."
Pros: "When one country allows the same size of lagguage one way .The other way down the other country doesn't allow in the last moment. They do not understand how inconvenient it would be for the travelers to adjust the lagguage ."
Cons: "It was difficult to leave planned lagguage in dust bin."
