Airline reviews

Pros: "Everything, one of my favourite airlines"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Had a broken seat it didn’t recline...."

Pros: "Delay"

Cons: "Aircraft was very old"

Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been kept more strict and organized."

Pros: "Emirates handling of the crisis was good.they delivered snacks at the boarding gate. Considerate ground staff kept us informed and profusely apologetic."
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No lounge. No notification that the lounge is closed. No compensation in a lounge replacement form just a shitty $40 voucher"

Pros: "Plenty of space"

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was awesome!"

Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "I started my journey from JFK with Emirates and before booking ticket I checked with customer care representative regarding the baggage allowance and I was told that I am allowed to carry up to 55 inch . I just carried 43 inch tv weighing 19lbs and one check-in baggage weighing 21kgs and they made me pay 175$ saying that tv size is not in allowed limitations. I have also filed complaint but didn’t get any response so far . Last year my husband carried 55 inch with ethihad from same airport JFK and was not charged single penny. so I can say there is no airport restriction as well."

Pros: "The staff at the check in counter at JFK was very friendly and accommodating, much like the crew on the flight. Boarding was orderly and efficiently executed, although some announcement about the 30-minute boarding delay would have been appreciated. Onboard the seating was quite comfortable compared with other airlines I have travelled on and the crew was exceptional in their service - really customer-focused. The meals were tasty with unlimited snacks and complimentary drinks. Generally, I would highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "The TV and remote controls could be updated. Touch screen was largely slow to respond and the whole system could be more intuitive."

Pros: "Crew is always helpful and friendly. Riding in economy is never very comfortable. Love the little chocolates handed out toward end of flight."
Cons: "Food is boring and repetitive. Current movie selections and TV shows were mostly uninteresting."

Cons: "Caused my bags to miss my connection to Mumbai. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Little room"

Pros: "Wonderful service. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "My TV wasn't working."

Pros: "Loved to watch a movie and get wonderful service"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Cons: "Hindu Meal was a repeat of the DEL DXB and DXB JFK sectors."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Pros: "Food is good, inflight entertainment is good, and even though the flight is long, Emirates does a good job inflight."
Cons: "29 passengers were arriving in JFK from MSP, a flight that was delayed due to ground staff issues at JFK (which means that Emirates' partner airline had some issues?). Plane was delayed but we landed just in time to make the connection or so we thought. After running through the terminal, we saw our plane attached to the gate for 53 minutes(I have pictures to show) but Emirates gate staff said the flight is now closed, and didn't let us board the flight. They didn't help us rebook our next flight, or pay for hotel or transportation. And some of us couldn't fly for 2 days because they were overbooked on their future flights. And that's what really happened - Emirates was overbooked for our flight, and conveniently used the excuse that they didn't know our flight had landed in JFK (seriously), and their ground staff was totally non challent about it. They asked us to call the partner airline to rebook, who instead asked us to call Emirates. 4-6 hours of calling for most of us in the middle of the night. Emirates has social media presence on Twitter & Facebook but it's like chatting with a wall. Its 100% useless and waste of time, and I have asked them where I can send my complaint but they won't respond."

Pros: "Seats were more spacious than other airlines, it was comfortable, food, service and entertainment was good."

Pros: "everything"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Iwas unable to select vegetarian meal on webjet online service"

Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."

Cons: "One baggage misssing, flight delay"

Pros: "Overall satisfactory"
Cons: "Time taken to Debord at Mumbai"

Pros: "Over all experience"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great leg room"

Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."

Cons: "Boarding was just a little delayed."

Cons: "The delays"

Cons: "Some of the crew staff are arrogant and unfriendly. I think they need to be trained on customer service!"

Pros: "Unlike most reviewers, I never have a good experience with Emirates.However, Crew (this time) was very accommodating and did their best to make this a comfortable trip."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."

Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "Want to be a millionare English version"

Pros: "Service was great whole trip was pleasant all the crew was v nice"
Cons: "Almost at the end rest room run out of supplies."

Pros: "Beautiful plane, lots of room, nice lighting, soothing colors, friendly staff, better meals, nice toy pack for my daughter."

Cons: "Something was wrong with the boarding process. Not sure what, but we were pacing on the jetway to the plane for 30 minutes or so. People were so eager to get on, but for some reason, they asked people to board in specific sections, when they weren't ready, or the people needing extra time had not gotten settled yet."

Cons: "Wasnt able to sit next to my wife on my honeymoon"

Cons: "We were not able to print the online checking ahead of time, so we had to stand in a lot of very long lines. The person printed the wrong boarding passes because they didn't know many details about domestic and international flights. There was also confusion about checking in the luggage between the domestic and international flights. A boarding pass from Dubai to Ahembadvad was not given at the New York airport."

Pros: "Everything was great! The A380 wonderful, quiet and spacious!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "This was my first time flying Emirates, and my very first flight from JFK to DXB was so late that I ended up missing my DXB-DEL connection and had to waste over 8 hours of my time and bear a lot of discomfort"

Cons: "Great! On time"

Pros: "Great leg room. Good food and entertainment."

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work or was buggy for the entire flight and while we got an apology, we got no other compensation. Also, with 2 hours left in the flight, the flight attendants loudly woke everyone up in the plane and forcefully raised everyone's seats, even if they were asleep, so that they could serve breakfast to everyone. That was an incredibly rude awakening."

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"

Pros: "The air crew was amazing & went above & beyond for us. I cannot say enough positive things about them!!!"

Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"

Whilst the crew were very friendly, always searching for a specific drink you request, but the food quality was average - I'm taking my own sandwich next time."

Cons: "I paid $60 for an emergency exit row for more legroom but I was seated next to a giant who spread over onto my armrest forcing me to lean towards the aisle. Not his fault - he was just too big for a single seat! Food has deteriorated to a cardboard box of slop. Entertainment options were extremely limited in comparison to other carriers. Noisy aircraft, poor quality headsets (I'd inadvertently packed my NC headphones in checked luggage)."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3.5 hours so we were stuck at LAX for a long long time, way passed the closing time of all the shops and restaurants at the international terminal :(. Otherwise a great flight w decent food and great service"

Pros: "Wine and speed of service was excellent. Friendly and approachable crew."

Pros: "Qantas Airlines really made traveling a pleasure.
