I lost a lot of money, was unable to talk to good customer service."
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: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."

Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."

Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"

Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."
Pros: "Service courtesy helpfully"
Cons: "I could not get pure vegetarian food as i am a strict vegetarian"

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."

Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."
Pros: "I’m very disappointed by the supervisor treatment at the time I was checking in and weighing my luggage. It is very frustrating to see that I was forced to pay US$ 175 for an excess of only 9 Kg. Even after I told him that my other luggage didn’t have the maximum weight he insisted either to throw away my items or pay the amount. The supervisor was ready to either not let to board the flight or leave my luggage. I could have appreciated if either charged only extra 9kgs or move the excess volume to check in luggage that was not full. The supervisor was not ready to listen and he constantly treats me in a disrespectful manner. Given to the mistreatments I had I have vows not to travel with Emirates anymore and also advise my friends and colleagues not to use it. I hope you will use this feedback to improve your customers services."

Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Crew and plane were fine. Nothing super special. Definitely less desirable a flight than European."
