Airline reviews

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Pros: "Bad handling and organization by JAL ground management. There was no support at the gate or clear leadership or direction of what needed to happen or what was to be done for the passengers They dumped everything in the Malaysian ground agents to handle without clear direction. Very poor service and no accountability"

Cons: "More movie choices. More substantial second meal."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"

Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"

Pros: "The flight attendant and staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Japan airport is updated with excellent facility and flight transferring was easy."

Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."

Cons: "Missed flight due to medical emergency"

Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"

Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."

Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"

Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage"

Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"

Pros: "Excellent crew,service and great food."
Cons: "It was little bit warm during flight. There were several other passengers that c/o the temperature being too warm."

Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."

Pros: "Always a good crew .. they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable."

Cons: "Didn't get to go. Thanks for selling me worthless insurance."

Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."

Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."

Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."

Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."

Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."

Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"

Cons: "Food is not that good"

Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."

Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"

Pros: "The upgraded seating."

Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Pros: "checking in at chicago ohare ord was a nightmare.there were only 12 of us in line yet the wait exceeded 1 hour , we watched as the airlines next to us processed well over 150 passenger's while the japan airline moved slower than snail sex. it was painfully beyond slow."

Pros: "The crew were cooperative and the supplies were good"
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable and the toilets were so dirty"

Pros: "Great food and beverage service"

Cons: "If flight cost less lol"

Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"

Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It took a while for them to serve the first meal and I don't know that there was a need for a second meal. I would have preferred to sleep."

Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"

Pros: "Their service"
Cons: "Foods"

Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."

Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."

Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."

Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"

Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."

Pros: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."

Pros: "Timely departure/arrival, great flight crew, good food, excellent ride, clean cabin."

Pros: "The crew is so polite and attentive. Snacks are free, generous, and tasty. Food is pretty good for airplane food. Interior was very clean and kept clean during the flight."
Cons: "I suppose the food could be better."

Pros: "Friendly staff and great food. Cabin was spacious even for Economy."

Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."

Pros: "Legroom is good, you don't need to recline the seat"
Cons: "Food wasn't the best"

Pros: "Enough room for relax, I love this one"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Enough room for relax"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Comfort... enough room for relax"
Cons: "none"

Cons: "Felt very cramped, seats very close together, headphone jack comes out of the side of the armrest, should come out the front of the armrest, I busted the ends off of two of my headphone cables."

Cons: "Touch screens were a bit glitchy. Was not able to adjust brightness, and volume kept readjusting by itself."

Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "The Japanese crew were not very good at English!"

Cons: "The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions. Not sure why but it was unnecessary to have too many, can't rest or sleep nor continue with viewing the entertainment provided. It seemed like a tired crew this time. The food was not good."

Pros: "Great food on ANA flight from Malaysia to Tokyo."

Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."

Pros: "ANA airline was great! I love the service and the crew was very friendly, answers questions with a smile. I will definitely choose this airline for my travels, I know how they treat the coustomers."
Cons: "NONE"

Cons: "Hdhdhd"

Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."

Pros: "I like the whole experience overall I would definitely Fly ANA again"
Cons: "I like the whole experience overall"

Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."

Cons: "There was no information about connecting flights before landing."

Pros: "crews have good attitude"
Cons: "flight from kuala lumpur to narita is not for mobility impaired person, one has to take a flight of stair down to tarmac then board a bus, then on to the airport itself."

Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"

Pros: "Great Premium Economy experience with comfortable seats and extremely-hospitable cabin crew!"
Cons: "Archaic In-Flight Wi-Fi Plans should be brought to modern-age plans."

Pros: "The service was excellent"

Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."

Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"

Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."

Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"

Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"

Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"

Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"

Pros: "The service is exceptional!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, variety of entertainment (sceen) , good food options and friendly and courteous service."

Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."

Pros: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."

Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."

Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"

Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."

Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."

Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "Everything great personnel"

Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."

Pros: "Not much turbulence"

Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."

Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"

Pros: "Crew is big on service and being true professionals. Always smiling and being attentive"

Pros: "I always felt attended to, great customer service, clean and best bang for your buck"

Cons: "good"

Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."

Pros: "Flew business class to SE Asia and experienced great service, fast check-in & boarding, terrific seating and amenities, and outstanding meals. Came home well rested."

Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."

Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"

Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."

Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."

Pros: "Great customer service, food was fine, seats were comfy in economy too. Definitely would fly again and recommend to everyone!"

Pros: "The service was amazing. The flight attendants were all so friendly and eager to assist. The meals were very tasty and complimentary wine was such a treat. Blankets were nice and thick, pillows were comfy, and you even received a little bag with socks and toothbrush."
Cons: "Can't think of anything:)"

Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."

Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."

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

Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "The crew left a lot to be desired. Very disappointed as when I flew last year, the crew was superb. I'm not a demanding flyer. I really hesitate to even call a flight attendant whenever I fly, so I'm not high maintenance. Incident 1: The flight from DPS to Singapore the flight attendant scoffed when I asked for socks saying that economy passenger don't receive socks on this flight. I didn't appreciate the suggestion that my class wasn't worthy of meeting my request. Her response felt condescending. Her continued interaction with me consistently felt short and mildly irritated with me. I didn't understand why. Honestly, I won't fly Singapore again because of this. Flights are not cheap for me. I spend the extra few hundred dollars because of great reviews and a superior experience last year. I will not be spoken to in a condescending way. On the second leg of my travel from Singapore to LAX the flight attendant once again said that I will not be given socks? Why, thought? I'm traveling for over 30 hours. Have things changed? Second, I asked for a second ice-cream. She handed me the ice-cream then took it out my hand and told me she would have to come back to me. The galley that was suppose to have food didn't seem to have anything. Was I missing something. Be fail on many level."

Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"

Pros: "I would definitely fly with Singapore again. Their staff is super attentive, they have lots of options for in-flight entertainment and things generally went smoothly. I didn't sign up for a special allergy meal ahead of time but they were able to accommodate me anyways."
Cons: "The food was overcooked, mushy and tasted old. The seats were small and didn't recline very much. I think these things are kind of normal now on most airlines."

Pros: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"

I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"

Pros: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."

Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"

Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "On each of my meals served the food was cold, and was actually ice cold in some places, some of the food served was inedible it was so bad. on a 16 hour flight the crew was mostly absent. Not once did they offer me s glass of water other than the little cups that came with the meal, nor did they come through the cabin to pick up trash.

Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff"

Cons: "Crew was rude."

Pros: "Spacious for the kid to walk"
Cons: "For this flight boarding was smooth as my previous flight was late and an Emirates employee ran us through security and to this flight on time. For the people reading this review who might think my kid would have been messy or cranky on the flight so we were treated this way, that was not the case, she not even cried once or made a mess. Same as my previous flight with crew, Crew were so late in responses, my wife actually walked to their place 2 times to get milk for the baby. Also she was not served food at all when they served breakfast. We requested Hindu meal and I was served hindu meal and she was missed and when they served lunch she was told she has not requested prior to the flight and can only be served a regular meal, which she gladly accepted. Kid was not served any food again, so we gave her solid from our meal. When we requested some food for the baby she was given a banana baby food(Kid did not even eat it). Taste of the food was edible(Not great). Overall do not fly emirates with a kid"

Pros: "The crew and my fruit platter."
Cons: "So many screaming babies. So many passsengers wanting a few upgrade. And a sick passenger that had to deplane resulting in delayed take off. The crew were saints- composed, polite, and embodied team spirit. So many screaming babies."

Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."

Pros: "Food, entertainment choices"
Cons: "Despite premium price, seat selection was not available unless you pay extra; Family of 4 dispersed and given only middle seats except one aisle seat; But that seat couldn't recline. Complained and asked how A380 seat with 16+ hour flight wasn't reported earlier. Crew admitted there's a log about seat 63C (EK215 DXB-LAX Jan 7) but Airline chose to ignore it! Crew was apologetic but was offering me free drink (almost seemed like bribe). One of the checked bags torn when we collected it at LAX; Overall, pretty bad but most annoying is the fact that they nickel & dime for seat position and lot of families were spread all over (not just mine)."

Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "No wonder Emirates is one of the best airlines in the world!"

Cons: "The layover from Karachi to Dubai is less than 2 hours. The flight from Karachi is always late n it makes me nervous that I might miss my flight for LA. It has happened to me before. You should maintain your punctuality in Karachi as well. Even the boarding process is extremely flawed, it is very frustrating. Plz maintain your reputation everywhere in the word!"

Pros: "The service was excellent and the crew tried to keep everyone comfortable. Food was good and great selection when it comes to entertainment."

Pros: "It felt comfortable."

Pros: "Food is terrible. Not what it used to be. Don't keep the bathrooms clean as they used to. Service just isn't as great as it used to be sadly. Entertainment is great tho!"

Cons: "Broke my bags."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "- almost nothing - They arranged vegetarian food on demand."
Cons: "- Repetitive food - No one turned up when called for assistance. - late service"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Not many passengers got to spread out"

Pros: "I was fully satisfied"
Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"

Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. I enjoyed that the plane was empty that we could all change our seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The walking to board my connecting flight was overwhelming, a lot of walking. Also, I understand the food isn't from a 5 star restaurant but the lamb I ate was over cooked and felt very rubbery. As the crew members went around aking if you want Tea or Coffee, I said I wanted coffee. The coffee was cold so I couldn't even drink it, i know I can ask for another one but I felt so disappointed that I'd rather have nothing. My monitor had lots of weird lines on them as the colors were so off on some areas and good on other areas."

Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"

Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."

Pros: "They canceled our flight because they were over booked ,we had to stay overnight , overall very unhappy with the airline , they forced us to purchase new tickets , will take legal action against the airline"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The entertainment and staff were unsurpassed. The food was better than industry standards."
Cons: "The seat was terribly uncomfortable. The seat bottom has a ridge that digs into your rear. This was on both 380 flights and I tried three seats in total. After a couple of hours is when the pain starts. If the seat back was moved forward, you would not sit on this edge. Please fix. Not sure I could fly on a 380 again for this duration."

Cons: "Baggage took over 40 minutes to come out."

Pros: "Every opportunity I get when traveling will fly with Emirates. The flight staff have always provided excellent service regardless of of being in economy class. The restrooms are always clean. I also enjoy being advised by the flight crew of any impending turbulence before we encounter. Emirates has always provided me an excellent flying experience despite my fears of long distance traveling."

Pros: "same as above"

Pros: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The flight was great. The seats were spacious and comfortable."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."

Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Cons: "Up grade with new movies. When I was booking the flight I choose my seats. But they at the airport they change the seating and separate the family."

Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."

Pros: "I got left alone! I watched movies, and slept most the flight!"
Cons: "Nothing in particular. I just wanted to be out of the plane asap since my "fun" incident in Maldives. Safe to say that emirates has ruined my vision of the maldives for a while."

Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"
