Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."

Pros: "It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old."
Cons: "The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers."

Pros: "Not really Seat cushion hard ."
Cons: "Boarding disorganised..little management of the process"

Cons: "Excellent as usual"

Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."

Pros: "Flight attendants are very friendly, actually smile, rather than scowl at you, as so many of the American carriers do."

Cons: "The boarding process needs improvement. The crew should be more friendly. And, there needs to be more movies and TV shows."

Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."

Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."

Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."

Pros: "10 out of 10. excellent. 5 stars."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "It was comfy, the crew seemed genuinely happy, and the food was good. Never going to complain about smoked salmon."
Cons: "I didn't like that my connecting flight was with another airline"

Pros: "entertainment, legroom"
Cons: "unacceptably atrocious customer service by crew at checkin. i was starting to think i accidentally got a wizzair ticket instead of emirates. shockingly poor manners."

Cons: "40 minute bus ride after landing. Why are they landing airplanes so far away from the terminal? They own the whole terminal!"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Cons: "A very small hidden FLYDUBAI reference for a one-route flight with Emirates logo was unprofessional and deceptive."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"

Cons: "I have no space for my legs ..i have 1.97 cm ..other things are excellent"

Pros: "The entertainment system was really good..."
Cons: "The food was poor compared to other airlines...IE British airlines void us great"

Pros: "Service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "Movie selection somewhat limited"

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Very poor food menu selection. For an airlines like emirates getting even the basics for Vegetarian mean was missing. A wrap offered was no where close to edible feeling. in AVML meal ordered what was offered was Pathai Noodles and some oriental vegetable preparations with Indian Achaar. didnt make any combination what so ever."

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Pros: "plain was big and clean entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "they lost 2 pieces of my luggage one of them was a wheelchair and there was a delay in takeoff"

Pros: "It was my birthday and the flight attendant gave me a rose, gummibears and champagne and congratulate me and I was very happy to receive that gesture"

Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"

Pros: "Overall, I can’t complain. The take off and landing was peaceful"
Cons: "The food could’ve been better. The wait time at Abuja needs lots of improvement. It was the worst part of the trip"

Pros: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Cons: "My luggage was left in Athens due to late arrivals in Athens to Munich. My son received his I didn’t, huge inconvenience"

Cons: "Unfriendly, sarcastic flight attendant. No free gin & tonics on United/Lufthansa apparently, unlike other international airlines. Had to pay extra to get what ought to be a standard amount of legroom."

Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "1. Airport (Frankfurt) 2. Service crew (Lufthansa) 3. Functional entertainment (device nonfunctional on the 9 hours trip)"

Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."

Cons: "More tasty food."

Pros: "Beautiful plane, economy seating more generous than normal, excellent in-seat entertainment (easy to navigate, more options than I've ever seen before). Well done!"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Staff were kind and courteous."
Cons: "Late departure and uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "flight on time-good sevice including food tha I ordered in advance and all my luggage arrived."

Pros: "The flight was very smooth."

Pros: "We only had carryons and they took the. From us before boarding the plane."
Cons: "They should tell people that there is delay and that they will take their carry one"

Pros: "Food was great; I appreciate the frequent water/juice service."

Pros: "Wider economy seats"
Cons: "Metal box impedied foot space for 15 hours and monitor froze several times during flight"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "you cancled my return ticket when I got off the plane in Frankfurt and did not contiue to Geneva.."

Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!! Hundreds of gates and we had to ride a bus out to the plane. Airline kept complaining to passengers that they didn't have enough personnel. Flight was late! Given totally incorrect information about luggage retrieval in Chicago. Not required! Waited 45 minutes for luggage that was not there and was supposed to be headed to Houston but did not arrive there either. Still waiting..."

Pros: "Very attentive crew; nice leg room on upper deck; extra storage bin under window a nice touch; luggage arrived very promptly on carousel"
Cons: "sick, screaming babies in small upper deck space. I realize the airline cant help this but it would be a good idea to seat them all in one area of the aircraft so staff can give them the attention they need."

Cons: "Our booking was changed from cologne to Frankfurt and Frankfurt was hurriable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Cons: "This flight was the second leg on my trip from New York to Munich. Many people on the flight from NY to Brussels were scheduled on this flight and that plane landed in time that this flight would only need to be delayed 10 minutes to allow for us to connect. However, they decided to leave all of us with a long unexpected layover in Brussels, costing many of us a day of what was supposed to be a short vacation for most."

Pros: "Very friendly stewards, great in lounge boarding for Gold members, great to have sparkling wine as a choice for economy too!"
Cons: "Tiny chairs, tiny leg room, crappy airplane food"

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "I like the friendliness of Lufthansa staff - on the plane and off the plane. This is definitely one of your strongest points Lufthansa!"

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Cons: "I order a seat near the window A9 but this seat has no window. the crew did not solve the problem even I ask them and note that is important to me/"

Pros: "Surprised by so many entertainment options!"

Pros: "service was good except for 1 attendant that didn't want to be there. Entertainment choices were very good."
Cons: "Food was very poor. Chicken was rubbery and the two pasta choices tasted horrible with no meat choice other than chicken. The biggest issue was the extreme delays from Lufthansa that ate into a 4+ hour layover that I should have had at LAX instead I arrived at the opposite terminal from my LAX flight with no time to get through customs and onto the plane I missed the plane by 10 minutes and had to book a hotel that wasn't paid for because it was Lufthansa's fault and not United which then put me and my family home a full 24 hours later than was originally planned."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "We liked everything about the flights: the crew was friendly and helpful, the food service for economy class was excellent, and the flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "...being bumped from row 26 to row 47; but we still retained seats H and K."

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight and the movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the crew, they was very caold and not pleasant at all. didnt like the food."

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Problems with the check-in online that made it impossible and cause that me and my partner had to seated not together. In the counters at the airport, we asked if it was possible a solution as I suffer with big anxiety and needed to be together my partner during the flight, and they answered us in an extremely rude way. Luckily we could change it with other passangers inside the plane by ourselves. Not a fault of Lufthansa but something that made the flight HORRIBLE was an extremelly smelly and very heavy guy seated next to me that used half of my seat and made me be really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Annoying kids in seats behind us :( Not enough leg room for someone over 6 feet tall."

Pros: "Staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Aircraft was pleasant and clean. Seats are a bit uncomfortable in that they seemed to lack cushion comfort but space was OK for economy class. I will highly recommend your airline to others. Thank you!"
Cons: "Food quality was not good."

Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"

Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport."

Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "Crew were friendly."
Cons: "Every thing is good."

Pros: "Staff in Germany very friendly"
Cons: "Ground stuff in turkey could be more friendlier"

Pros: "Prices and service"
Cons: "Everything its perfect service"

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."

Pros: "The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."

Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The flight departed over 3 hours late. Rather than communicating a realistic departure time, the flight was delayed 6 times in 20-40 minute intervals."

Cons: "No delays"

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived early, good flight attendant service"

Cons: "Flight over 5 hours late."

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "That goodness it was a short flight. Seats are small."

Cons: "I was supposed to land in denver by 930 and did not end up getting in until 140. We sat on the tarmac at ohare for 20 minutes because they did not plan the gates well then there was a plane blocking our gate customer service lines were absurd. The flight attendant to o hare was very unprofessional"

Pros: "Pleasant interactions"
Cons: "Didn't realize I couldn't choose my seats with United's new fare"

Cons: "Now Sherry in any documentation I received did it say that my flight was operated by United airlines. I waited at ANA check in until within the 2 hour window and went around and asked someone at United who confirmed that they were partners with ANA."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I was delayed /cancelled 12 times due to air traffic and arrived 27 hours after I was suppose to. Instead of 1 connecting flight they made me take another connecting flight. I was offered no vouchers for anything and all the people at the desks were very rude. To top it all off they lost my luggage and they still haven't found it, it's been over 24 hours"

Cons: "What does a girl have to do to get in a boarding group that isn't LAST?"

Pros: "Arriving early in LA"
Cons: "No head phones. toilet sink blocked paper bin not emptied check in at Rochester was a horror show. In end supervisor had to help. He said United wasn't connected to Air NZ star alliance. Also wanted to charge $35 for extra bags when we were flying business class from LA to Auckland. We are both currently Gold elite with Air NZ Cant use money to buy glass of wine or buy food. On way from LA to Rochester , 2 stages nite lights didnt work so couldn't read as window passenger pulled the blind down, it was night time."

Pros: ",,,GOOD FLIGTH! THANK YOUUUU ALL*"

Cons: "Very rude lady working at United desk at LAX. I am a veteran and I have very bad anxiety and PTSD and my wife (who is active duty) were split up for the flight so we had asked to be seated next to one another since we had picked our seats online prior to flying. The lady was very rude rolling her eyes saying that there was nothing she could do for us besides us asking people to possibly switch seats even though my spouse had the United app open and showed two seats to upgrade too and she didn't even ask if we wanted to upgrade to be next to each other. At this point I had to take my anxiety medication and as we were taking off one of the flight attendants said we could ask about upgrading but yet the lady at the desk said nothing."
