We also asked for some fruit instead of the pizza snack and didn't receive it either. I know you don't have much control over passengers, but we had a two year old child in our seating area and it screamed and cried virtually the entire 14 hour flight. Very annoying."

Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "It was ok, average."
Cons: "The reclining function of my seat was broken, smaller seats and too high air conditioning."
Pros: "So, as mentioned, this was our first time flying Emirates and from our flights from Maryland to Dubai to Philippines has been pleasant, the only issue we've had was with the security process and an incident that my wife encountered in Dubai when we were in the process of boarding to go to Washington Dulles. We landed in Dubai and we were in transit to our connecting flight. We went to our assigned gate and had to check in with security prior to waiting in our gate or boarding the plane. We checked in our electronic devices and my wife was asked to be checked. There wasn't anything wrong up until that moment. My wife cooperated with all the requests of the security agent. They asked her to go inside a security room/enclosed area and the first thing that the security agent asked my wife was why she wasn't wearing her wedding band. It was obvious that she was married because she had a tan line of the marks of wearing a ring. It was her travel ring and she removed it because it was too tight and she explained that to the agent. The agent then made the comment "so you got fat on this trip?". My wife was confused on what she said and asked her "what did you say?". The agent then repeated ..."So you're fat... that's why the wedding ring doesn't fit?" My wife was furious but maintained her cool because she didn't want to give a reason for her to be held from getting on the flight. I didn't see the situation take place and I don't know if there was anything that triggered her comment. My wife felt humiliated. I don't know the agent's name but I wanted to address the incident. Our experience with Emirates has been very pleasant but having to feel helpless after someone with authority to make that comment was humiliating and ruined the rest of her time on the flight as well as mine."
Pros: "Emirates is my new favorite airline. Food was excellent, flight attendants were all friendly and professional, the seats were spacious, and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."
Pros: "My first time on Emirates and it was great. Lots of room and amenities even in economy. Food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Emirates is easily the beeeest airline out there. Their economy beats almost every other airline, and their rewards system is fantastic (truly rewarding -- I get free flights all the time for being a Skywards Silver member). The food is so much better than other airlines too. I ordered a vegan meal and their vegan meals over the past 6 years went from absolutely awful to incredibly delicious and gourmet. Their entertainment system is also the best Ive seen across all airlines. They have movies that are literally still in theaters, as well as old classics, comedies, horrors, tv shows, world movies in every language, audiobooks, meditation guides and more. The crew is totally accommodating. Happy to keep flying on Emirates for every flight !"
Cons: "I haaaate that there are no footrests. It literally makes the biggest difference. These flights are always so long and its impossible to sleep unless you have three or so seats in a row to yourself."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were spectacular and the availability of the crew was first-rate."
Cons: "The late arrival from Bahrain (0130) required a 40 minute bus ride to the terminal, which reflects poorly on the reputation of Emirates and the Dubai airport in general. It felt very poorly organized and shoddily run."
Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."
Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."
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: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "Up to date movies"
Cons: "The boarding in riyadh airport was crowded because it included all economy class travelersat once, it should start from A category till the last group. This should be rectified."
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: "Nice spacious aircraft , nice catering , friendly crew."
Pros: "everything was very good we had such a great time"
Cons: "nothing really"
Cons: "The flight was good, however I was not able to check in online due to British airways website issues. The entertainment touch screen is not working properly,needs some maintenance."
Cons: "Seat 26 beside exit but cold air passing through the door/fuselage made the overnight flight very cold and uncomfortable. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Everything was really good. Very nice crew. I will highly recommend it."
Cons: "I think it is one of the best."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost and the flight was 1.5 hours late."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seat spacing is awful."
Cons: "3+ hours late"
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration BA is using in Business class. The staggered seating with 50% rear facing makes griping in and out of seats"
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Pros: "Staff were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "The two meals we received were not quite enough to see us through a 9 hour flight"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "The flight left on time although take-off was delayed due yo traffic. Plane is new and comfortable."
Cons: "I did not enjoy the Java coffee I ordered because the coffee pulps were the first item I tasted upon drinking the coffee. I called the attention of the flight attendants but nobody answered because the 2 were busy selling items to the passengers. I just removed the coffee bits by throwing them out of my mouth using napkin."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Departed about 2 hours late."
Pros: "Very accommodating flight crew, food and drinks very good, Entertainment excellent"
Cons: "Printing boarding passes is difficult."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "The plane was new. The crew was awesome and the flight short."
Pros: "I arrived safely and on time.....good movie selection"
Cons: "Breakfast out of London was not appealing - eggs not tasty and potatoes mushy and lacking in taste."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, serving food, drinks and water very often"
Cons: "BA made me place my laptop and Ipad in the checked bag, preventing me from working on my computer for the next 20+ hours until my final destinations. Ridiculous policy! Very rude immigration and security people at Riyadh, I realize this is not BA's fault, but it was very annoying. Second level search of my carry-on bags at the gate very invasive procedure."
Pros: "Able to stretch legs."
Cons: "Quality of food served London to Los Angeles needs to be taken to a higher level."
Cons: "Using stairs to de-plane"
Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Pros: "That the flight was not bumpy and due to bad entertainment I had good views out the window"
Cons: "Tight seating, old airplane, a bit dirty, most info was in Spanish!? Could not hear overhead announcements,"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "90 minutes delay for a 1 hour flight. They blamed the weather but no other flights were delayed except this one. Also, I purchased a seat with no checked baggage allowance and was NOT aware of this when I booked. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Cons: "The crew was rude and almost didn't seem like they wanted to be there especially this one person called Byron."
Pros: "Nothing really exceptional"
Cons: "Flying frequently with Emirates and Saudia rises your standards! seats, privacy, food, service on British airways are way behined!"
Pros: "There is nothing to like. I paid for three return tickets from Amsterdam to London. My family and I were at airport and couldn't get on the flight. Even return trip wasn't honored. I made a mistake by choosing this carrier and would never do this or even recommend British Airline to anyone. . What disaster."
Pros: "The cabin crew were exceptional. One flight attendant in parifular was extremely helpful to us in helping place our carry on luggage in the overhead compartment. I did not get his name but he told me he was from Spain."
Cons: "- Landing cards were only distributed 20 minutes before arrival. The seat belt sign was already on. So, I could not use the food tray to fill out the cards. I tried to use the magazine to put under the landing card, but there was some turbulence and I could not fill out the cards n the plane. Cards should be passed to passengers an hour after Akef off. - no gifts given to kids like small games or coloring crayons to keep them busy. - food took hours to serve and was not comparable to BA's image. - the water pressure in the toilet's wash basin was too strong and was splashing all over my cloths."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was poor. Also breakfast was bland"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed, the previous flight lost our baggage and we arrived in LAX at 11. We then missed our connecting flight from LAX to PHX. British a Airways told us that they couldn't do anything about it and we had to stay the night in the airport and get on the next flight at 6am from southwest."
Pros: "Clean cabin and crew's friendly attitudes."
Cons: "Finally got it 20 mins before touch down but the cheese was still freezing cold! That's amazing! The crew would rather enjoying coffee and talking instead noticing the call for help. Coffee served with a loosing lid and ended up spilling out."
Pros: "The crew above all were cordial, warm and approachable. Not only to the passengers, but to one another. They all seemed to get along really well with one another and that set the tone for a long but comfortable flight. It's probably one of the most memorable of all my flights b/c the experiences."
Cons: "Better in flight food choices. Maybe I should've purchased a meal. Will definitely order a meal the next time I fly on BA. And maybe a different seat type so that it's more comfortable."
Pros: "Food, movies, crew were all great"
Cons: "Sitting with not enough leg room for 12 hours. I am 6 ft tall, and I made it work mostly, but needed a neck pillow that I brought to fall asleep, and it wasn't for very long. Just feeling the pinch!"
Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"
Cons: "Horrible service for providing wheel chair. Pathetic service. They do not care much about the help needed."
Cons: "Seat backs are too thin. You feel every time the person behind you goes into the pocket."
Cons: "Tiny area for feet at window seat. Overhead compartment smaller than usual."
Pros: "The service was good. I felt bad for them because of the number of cards they had to process."
Cons: "As of mid-January, any flight less than 5 hours includes no complimentary food or drink. Cash and check are not accepted, and the card processors are slow. This meant the stewards were in the aisle for quite a while dealing with this, and access to the bathrooms was hampered."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful , the seats very comfortable , breakfast very reach I felt my self booking first class not economy It is the best trip"
Pros: "The flight experience was average. Not too bad but not too great. No food was offered. The flight was short so it as okay."
Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly despite some windy conditions, and we were transported in one piece, without incident, from LHR to IAD. The crew members were pleasant in conversation and reasonable in frequency of food service. Once, when I pressed the attendant button, one of them came quickly to ask me what the problem was, and that kind of responsiveness is always a plus, in my opinion. The seats reclined a reasonable amount, not the mere 2-5 cm one sometimes experiences lately."
Cons: "The aircraft was aging at least a bit, and it was clear because my seat almost would not return to the upright position and stay there. Several times I tried to return it to upright as the end of the flight neared, and it would easily move but would return to reclined once I leaned back. It was as if I had been the whole time keeping my finger on the button that makes the seat movable. After I'd about given up, the seat finally stayed upright even when I put my weight back on it. My flight attendant misunderstood my drink request, but I let it go because the result was close to what I had asked for. It could have been that there was too much background noise - not sure."
Pros: "Professionalism of staff"
Cons: "Boarding system"
Cons: "I have to request several times for a glass of water. My seat was broken and didn't care about anyone extra needs."
Cons: "Our flight left two hours late causing us to miss the connection in London going to San Jose. We stood in line for 5 HOURS while British Airways tried to arrange for us and many, many others to get to their final destination."
