Pros: "one of the best flights I have had going to zanzibar"
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas .

Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Some customers were allowed to drink to excess. Staff lacked the discipline to say no. Cabin staff showed clear bias to some customers. They chose to chat with passengers and neglected their duties. Little clusters of drinkers gathered in non seat areas away from their seats causing noise. Staff did not challenge this. Female staff too busy giggling with drunk men"
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: "I enjoyed everything about Emirates. No complaints. Nice plane and stewardess."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."

Pros: "The flight from Dubai to NYC was great"
Pros: "Great service during flight. It did not feel like it was over 14 hours."

Pros: "I like the selection of movies."
Cons: "The check-in and gate staff were trying to weigh our carry-ons and make us adjust things when ultimately does it matter how much weight I can carry on the flight? What if I gained 20 pounds since I booked my ticket. Will I be charged? Seriously, if it's that big of a deal, there should be a limit on weight of the person plus their carry-ons. Thin people should not be hassled! I am saving a hundred or so pounds by not weighing so much! Stop hassling us for carry-ons!"
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Cons: "The delay in the return leg but all in the interest of safety so no complaints. Wifi in Dubai airport good be better"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"

She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Cons: "Left the cabin lights on most of the trip and kept interrupting with announcements to sell duty free and other things when most people just wanted to sleep. Flight from Chicago to Helsinki was much better."
Pros: "Blueberry juice!"
Cons: "No food."
Cons: "No seating available at the gate. People had to sit on the floor or stand"
Cons: "Another upgrade charge, no extra leg room but a seat "near the front" (row 8). NO entertainment system. Only food service was on-board bistro, which sadly I slept through because I was exhausted from getting absolutely no sleep on their crummy transatlantic flight... There are no 'zeroes' to give, so can only give a 1 star poor rating on food, entertainment and comfort. Crew, again, tried in the face of a crummy airline."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5 and a half hours and did not arrive into Chicago until almost midnight."
Pros: "The staff were thoughtful and kind. They checked on us and offered snacks and water very regularly. My favorite, though, was that the captain took the time to alert us to the sights out the window. We had closed the shades at the request of the attendants and would have missed the beauty of Greenland had he not alerted us to peak out. I appreciate that!"
Pros: "Everything well organized"
Cons: "Something that was unpleasant was if someone spoke through the announcement system it would be very loud through the headphones if someone is listening to a movie or music"
Pros: "Good movie selection, frequent water refills, boarding was quick and easy with ample overhead stowage"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken, non-adjustable headrest, older flight crew less tolerant of passenger disrespect, not quite enough bathrooms, food had my stomach in knots"
Pros: "Breakfast was good"
Cons: "Air conditioning was blasting down on me too powerfully"
Pros: "They moved my boyfriend and I from the back two seats on the plane up to the front with four seats across the middle! This was amazing for the long flight and allowed us to be very comfortable throughout the flight. Great service as well with three food servings and constant trash pickup."
Cons: "Woman in front talked endlessly"
Pros: "Food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "Plane only had screens for the movie in the center aisle and only every five rows or so."
Pros: "The economy seating was relatively comfortable and spacious, compared to some other airlines, and we boarded and departed on time. Boarding was quick, if chaotic."
Cons: "They gave us ipads to watch movies, which were old and didn't work well, but were difficult to hold if you also got a tray or a drink. They didn't give you much water and it was hard to get service. The airplane itself looked pretty old and a little run-down."
Pros: "AA fly to/from Charlotte and if you are lucky you'll get a local NC crew, southern drawl included. The A330's are nice, even without Prem Economy the seating space is decent on the former USAir metal."
Cons: "The USB charge points do not work. Plus, the touch screens for the IFE require a lot of hard tapping on the screen, annoying for the people in the seat on which back the screen is placed."
Pros: "could change to extra legroom on the day without extra charge"
Cons: "no individual entertainment console, and only certain seats had power outlets."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "No way to get seat assignments until 4 hours before flight"
Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."
Pros: "easy - no surprises"
Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence. Only paid food offerings. From gate took 10-15min bus drive to plane No entertainment"
Pros: "Very good flight"
Cons: "Seats on the Dreamliner seemed cramped and too close together."
Pros: "The entertainment was really up to date and easily accessible"
Cons: "My flight was delayed but I was able to catch my connection flight. (After running through the Madrid airport). Then when I arrived in Berlin I come to find out my bags were still in Madrid."
Pros: "Good Entertainment, and I had an empty seat next to me. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was lost when I got to Paris and the staff at the ticket booth in Denver were not aware that my final destination was Paris."
Pros: "After a hellish arrival to London it was nice to have a good flight coming home, but the flight was on British Airways, not Finnair, which was a surprise since I booked Finnair."
Pros: "Even though the flight was late, we arrived in good time. Everything was great otherwise."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late."
Cons: "When I booked the flight there wasn't an option for a special meal and I have dietary restrictions so I was unable to eat any of the food on the plane."
Pros: "British airways is always a good choice for me, never had a bad flight with them."
