Airline reviews

Pros: "I didn’t get on this flight. Due to the departure at LAX. It would’ve been nice to know that this was a possibility before the arrival. Although the ladies at Japan Airlines were able to get me on a later flight, it almost didn’t happen. But the kept making calls to help me. I’m very thankful they were able to get me on ANA flight at 8pm."
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "The crew and food was amazing, with ample entertainment selections."
Cons: "Seats. For some unknown reason, JAL uses different seats on this 787-8 flight from NRT-SAN that's 2-3 inches less in pitch than all of their other planes. This was not comfortable on a 9-hour+ flight. The flight attendants also woke us up everytime food was served so we could recline up seats."

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Trip to Manila from Tokyo was delayed for 3hrs plus"

Pros: "very good"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The foods could be better not up to the standard of EVA air on economy class"

Pros: "Good efficiency for boarding an good in air entertainment"

Pros: "Good service. Flight went off without a problem."

Pros: "even though middle seat, there was enough leg room to rest comfortably."

Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"

Pros: "JAL is hands above any of the American airlines....so polite, helpful, diligent and graceful. Food much better as well, and newer planes."

Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"

Pros: "Great airline, roomy seats and they don't nickle and dime you like other airlines."

Pros: "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."

Pros: "I was very surprised Japan Airlines staffs welcomed at boarding gate in Chubu Centrair,Nagoya with friendly smiles, chocolate and a mask for the upcoming flight. Also very comfortable seat, friendly crews during flight. One of the best flight !"

Pros: "The service, more leg rooms and flight attendants were very friendly."

Pros: "Service is outstanding. Attentive but not invasive and always with a genuine smile. Will fly JAL every time it’s an option"

Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."
Cons: "One meal was sufficient in quantity, mediocre in quality. Other meals and snacks were skimpy in frequency and quantity."

Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Pros: "Great flight, great food (Hagendaus Ice Cream was a great treat)"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Food was very good and snacks and drinks were offered frequently. Plenty of entertainment on the in-seat TV consoles. Gave me a pillow and blanket and the seat reclined a bit so I could sleep some. The airline staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing, it was a very positive experience."

Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."

Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Food, lavatory experience"
Cons: "Small carry and carry on bag"

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "Service impeccable"
Cons: "Worst food in the industry. Barely edible."

Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."

Pros: "The airplane and all"
Cons: "A little bit in the sakura lounge"

Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."

Pros: "The flight staff was excellent on my flight back to JFK. They were very attentive and kept a smile. There was never a time where I felt uncomfortable. There was open seating on the flight and the staff allowed passengers to relocate for increased comfort. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."

Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."

Pros: "Attendants were very supportive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Restroom smelled bad"

Pros: "Roominess of economy seats."
Cons: "Poor movie selection. Heavily skewed to action/terror/suspense. Very few dramas, and none of them current."

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class. Enough leg room, good attention, never felt like I was riding a crowded city bus as on typical one distance economy class. Worth paying a little more for being treated like a human"
Cons: "I did have any negatives on this flight"

Pros: "We left on time, we arrived early. The crew was very polite and helpful. The food was decent on board and the seats were comfy."
Cons: "I wish they flew all over the USA, American carriers should be ashamed"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "The movie selection, my electrical outlet didn't work and they took my phone away from me to charge it in economy plus but did not allow me to come with my phone. The food wasn't very good either."

Pros: "We boarded quickly and orderly. The crew was very attentive and made sure we all had enough to eat and drink. The food was good, the tea and coffee was good."
Cons: "Not a darn thing...."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian Food, inflight entertainment was horrible. Even the air hostess approach Was unexpect from JAL. If it was any American carrier it's expected to have such service."

Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."

Pros: "Well-appointed airliner. Good food, comfortable seats, wide range of in-flight entertainment. And, as always, extremely polite and accommodating attendants."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough for comfort. I would trade this for leg-room."

Cons: "Food was not good."

Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was plentiful. One of the best flights I've ever been on."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I needed to borrow a pen and the flight staff hardly had any."

Pros: "The ANA crew is pretty awesome. They are super nice and professional. I would 12 out of 10 travel with ANA again."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, toilets clean."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 times, didn’t receive text or Email from the second delayed"

Pros: "The flight attendants were so awesome and beautiful! Food and snacks were great and the amount of time we were fed. They came around in a timely manner to get trash and ask what we wanted to drink."
Cons: "More variety of options for the vegan meals..."

Pros: "Crews were friendly and helpful. I never had economy seat that goes as flat as theirs. I liked the safety instruction video."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of food options quickly. Wasn't a problem for me. But, they should know better."

Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"

Pros: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall service on the plane was great."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Los Angeles and we did not make our connecting flight in Tokyo. The next option they had was a full 24 hours later so we ended up taking the train. I tried to make adjustments to one of my flights for the return home and was told that is not an option."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and the food was very nice."
Cons: "It really would have been nice to have a vegetarian option!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food can be better and Entertainment was poor There should be more choices available. WiFi was spotty only 150 MB was available after paying. It should be free in business class like other airlines"

Pros: "Service, crew, seats, punctuality"
Cons: "Bad food, cold coffee and tea."

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "Great experience overall."

Pros: "Comfortable seat space and food is great"

Pros: "Food was good and staff were very helpful. The boarding zone in economy class were easy , it started from the last to the front."

Pros: "Friendly & helpful stewardesses, watched new release movies, good meals, overall a smooth ride."
Cons: "Quite a few passengers with young children crying throughout the trip but I can sympathize trying to keep them occupied on such a long flight."

Cons: "Deception at the time of booking"

Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."

Cons: "You should add some veg dishes"

Pros: "Food and movies."

Pros: "Great customer service and very kind staff!"

Pros: "The flight crew was definitely the best part of the flight! Not only did it seem that all the flight attendants were highly attractive - but, they were also extremely attentive throughout the flight AND they did it with enthusiasm & smiles! What a remarkable group of service professionals!"

Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Narita has poor general facilities overall. Therefore ANA should offer a discounted lounge facility for passengers with more than 4 hours transit. (I read that lounge food is surprisingly bad. I used the United lounge instead.)"

Pros: "Great star wars vessel. Very attentive staffs and flight attendants."

Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."

Cons: "Long security lines"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "When I went to counter to get my seat assignment I was offered 25,000 yen to take a later flight because mine was overbooked. I agreed and began notifying my transportation at my final destination when I was told nevermind, space was no longer needed. This was aggrevating."

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."

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: "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."

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: "the crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "due to a medical emergency, we sat on the plane for two hours before a decision could be made as to whether or not we needed to return to the gate. keep in mind, this was in addition to the 13 hour flight from LAX to NZ. it was a very long evening/day of travel."

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"

Cons: "Just a bit cramped"

Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."

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."

Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Cons: "Lack of leg room"

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: "Very professional; enjoyed entertainment options"

Pros: "Very attentive crew, layout, comfort"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything I wa"

Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."

Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."

Cons: "The lounge is a bit far from the departure gate, so I waited with regular economy class travelers. It would have been nice to have had a closer dedicated area for business class."

Pros: "Response is the same as above"

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "Flight was on time, baggage was quick, got out of airport and on my way."
Cons: "Deboarding out on the taxi way in Doha, then busing us to the terminal, took a long time, we were dropped in front and had to go through security again, should have been an easy connection but ended up rushing. status boards in Doha are not that clear, change a lot"

Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."

Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were outstanding. Anticipated requests, were readily available and attentive without hovering over you. QSuite was superb. Food was excellent."

Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"

Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"

Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"

Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."

Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Pros: "Better crew members"
Cons: "Seats and food.. This should be the last travel with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."

Cons: "You charge me around $400 Australian dollar because the emigration change the trip until I get the permission to travel overseas that not my fault , why you charge me all this amount ??!! Please return my money"

Pros: "The spirit despite the COVID19 scare. Serving on an India bound flight from the Gulf is never easy"
Cons: "We need to promote paper free boarding passes for whoever can afford. Atleast an endeavor."

Cons: "Love Emirates - would fly it everywhere if I could!"

Cons: "It was cold and the blankets got collected 45 minutes before arriving. Well, we had to wait 30 more minutes to get to a gate and I was freezing!"

Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"

Pros: "It was comfortable flight and most importantly, our family was finally seated together in our last flight EK 420. The crew were attentive to us."
Cons: "The entertainment shows could be better as it was limited"

Pros: "The crew helped us get seats together as a family and also made a request for that seat change. They allowed us to board earlier which really helps since we have two kids under 4 years of age."
Cons: "The announcements at Chennai airport are not always audible"

Pros: "The options for drinks for this 13hr flight were great. The food was sufficient. The ride was smooth as usual."

Cons: "Something weird was going on about how food was served and how people went about deciding what to have."

Pros: "The crew was both friendly and attentive. I was satisfied with their interest."
Cons: "I found the boarding experience in Dubai to be quite tedious. We were shuffled around here and there and getting on the plane itself was tough."

Pros: "the people working on the plain and airport."

Cons: "poor service . Unresponsive cabin crew"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment and nice crew. The flight was good so I could sleep from time to time."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to have one stop in Dubai. But the return route was changed so we had 2 stops, one in Dubai and another one in New York with long hours until the next connection. I arrived in Seattle a day later which made me lose a working day."

Pros: "It was so nice"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "Everything was very good."

Pros: "Arriving at Perth is always a hassle with delayed baggage unloading. Can Emirates engage their own staff to expedite this activity. The Perth baggage handlers are too slow, particularly when on penalty rates on Sundays."

Pros: "Food, staff, seats, quality and feel of cabin"
Cons: "The cabin is heavily perfumed. I coughed most of the flight from the various scents. You could tone it down a bit."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was great"

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"

Cons: "There is nothing to not like"

Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"

Cons: "Changing the flight schedule without any concideration!"

Pros: "When traveling overseas, I believe Emirates is by far one of the best airlines to travel with. From check-in to arrival the staff is extremely professional, polite and helpful. I will look to travel with Emirates every possibility I get."
Cons: "I think the meals can be simplified a little. Wasn't a big fan of the food, but I rarely eat on the plane so it didn't matter anyway."

Pros: "I'm not going to travel by Emirates again. My miles were not added though I asked multiple concerned people. Same thing happened with some of the fellow travelers."

Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties."

Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."

Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "they are a bit expensive compared to other airlines but given the service cant complain. hopefully they start A380 from SEA"

Pros: "Dubai was fun."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. Not very heathy. More fruit and veg please. I don't like that the flight attendants close the curtain for first class disembarking. Seemed pretty childish and snobby."

Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."

Pros: "the amazing atttention from the staff and the cleanliness of the airline."
Cons: "the seats did not go back enough"

Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."

Pros: "Every thing , service , taking off and landing ."
Cons: "Nothing , every thing was perfect"

Pros: "Continues"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."

Pros: "The plane was good and new. Larger plane and ride is a much more comfortable for the longer hauls. Overall good experience traveling."
Cons: "Veggie food, especially Asian vegetarian was unpalatable for the longer flight. Kids pretty much starved to then eat at the Dubai airport later."

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Pros: "Good space"
Cons: "It's unfortunate that when you order a special meal you dont get your drinks until after you have eaten your meal. and if you end up waiting then you end up having a cold meal. It would be great if this could be changed"

Pros: "Food and entertainment seemed a bit upscale."
Cons: "Young air hostesses with a bit of attitude. Wouldn't talk, just shake their heads in a weird way, to ask about what I wanted to drink or eat. None of my luggage made it."

Pros: "Please Refund my ticket"
Cons: "Lost baggage. It had important stuff"

Pros: "on time and proice"
Cons: "food and seat"
