The food was less than ordinary! Sadly, you have taken away the open buffet between meals. This buffet of fresh fruit, chocolates & healthy bars were welcome & much appreciated! The little pouch with few essential things for travellers was very useful......you've taken take away too! Qatar, Turkish or Itthehad Airlines are beckoning me!"
Cons: "My one problem, which is not Emirates' problem, is the lady that sat behind me on my way to Dubai in October was unhappy if I reclined my seat at all. I didn't want to cause a problem, so I left it upright - later on, when I walked to the back, I saw her sleeping w/her seat reclined!

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew; comfortable within the limits of economy class!"

Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."
Pros: "The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Cons: "When I was boarding on my 14 hour flight from Dubai to the US, I was briefly informed by the Emirates boarding staff that my seat had been changed. I had specifically chosen my aisle seat because I like to stand often on long flights, so I was concerned that it had been changed. When I tried to get more information from the staff member, he dismissively said "Ma'am, this is a good seat" and handed me my ticket without even making eye contact. There was no apology or courtesy of any kind. I ended up with a window seat and I had to crawl over two other people throughout the 14 hour flight to use the restroom or stretch my legs. I expected more courtesy from the staff for this kind of inconvenience and will rethink my flight plans in the future to avoid Dubai."
Cons: "Boarding was 'mediocre' due to the air crash earlier in the day, led to a gate change and various chaos. Great staff through, so not really so bad and totally understandable...."
Cons: "Crew members are very arrogant at passengers they will not respond quickly .Food is not at all good"
Cons: "Flight stranded on the runway for 3 hours due to technical issues"
Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"
Pros: "Water station!"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her."
Pros: "The crew on Virgin Atlantic was superb!"
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend."
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."

Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "Crew were great. EconomyX is a wonderful seating set up"
Cons: "Very strange boarding. They got us through the boarding process but then made us all wait in the bridge because the plane wasn’t ready. So now you have a plane load of people all crammed into the bridge. Very poor."
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding, comfortable enough flight"
Cons: "Could have used a charger for electronics, especially because we were expected to use our own device for entertainment. Didn't order food, but didn't look digestible"
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight to Tobago. Staff was quite friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "Staff was top notch in service and kindness"
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."
Pros: "The ground staff at Delhi was very helpful in giving us a new flight ticket for the next day for free eventhough they maintained that it was actually Air India's responsibility."
Cons: "member of cabin crew chewed gum. no food selections left by time cart reached my seat."
Pros: "a very good experience Felt as if the crew cared"
Pros: "Made the long flight bearable to have good food, drinks, and entertainment provided."
Pros: "Keep up the good work. The crew was amazingly hospitable. I felt right at home. THANKS"
Cons: "I would suggest James Bond be made available, It seems appropriate. However I have no complaint."
Pros: "Great Service, comfortable seats, good choice of movies"
Cons: "Food...Does not encourage healthy eating...but I this is nothing our the ordinary for flights"
Pros: "Availability of Indian movies"
Cons: "The variety of movies on every route is the same and there is minimal variety"
Pros: "I am a disables person who can not walk more that a few feet without assistance. I was helped all the way to my seat which was great. The Terminal employees were very helpful"
Cons: "The food was burn on to the bottom of the dishes and to hard to eat. The crew spent most of the time in the galley and only came out to serve the food."
