Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."

Pros: "Attendants and aircraft comfort was excellent"

Pros: "Easy to check in, outstanding crew!"
Cons: "Old, old, old plane! :("

Cons: "Complete overhaul of all your crews and workers in different airports except the airport workers in America. They were nice and cautious. My overall experience was awful"

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."

Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."

Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"

Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."

Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."

Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."

Pros: "Stewardesses were great"
Cons: "It took them 1.5hours to give me my luggage. Everyone else had left. They kept making me go back and forth saying it was coming but nothing. This had never happened before and was ridiculous given it was a direct flight"

Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "—-"

Pros: "Food is good . Service is good"
Cons: "Airline appear to be harassing passengers with excessive overage charges. DXB is supposed to be a shoppers paradise. They are weighing dutyfree bags too along with cabin baggage. Eg: they charged me $56 for 2 kgs overage. I am very disappointed."

Pros: "Leg room, on time boarding departure and landing, no delays, condition of the plane. Loved the outlets/ usb entries. Bathroom clean."
Cons: "To pay for wifi during international flights is unacceptable. I think this way for all airline companies. Not just Emirates. it was free for the first 2 hours, but the speed was sooooooo slow!!!"

Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."

Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Legroom entertainment show selection remote control {very poor} Food"

Cons: "Ground crew was not well organized. Lacked attention and professionalism. Bad way to start a flight."

Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "The food, crew and comfort were as good as can be on a 14 hour flight."

Pros: "Caring crew"

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: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."

Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"

Cons: "The flight was delayed"

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: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Pros: "All was good. Excellent price. Plenty of space. Crew was nice and helpful, as always with Turkish Airlines. The flight was on schedule."

Cons: "Fod no good"

Cons: "Change the crew they were rude"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment, nice food"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not friendly, and were resistant for any special requests"

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attractive business class fares. Among the best business class."
Cons: "Don't underestimate the additional hours. The stopover in Istanbul is definitely a negative (crowded, unpractical airport). Next time I will probably stick to European airlines, if the fare difference is reasonable."

Pros: "I love the food and the movies"

Cons: "The grilled cheese sandwiches. They've been in the menu for a while but my family does not enjoy them at all. Tuna sandwich on another flight was much better. Also lack of entertainment. They allow you to access it, then they turn it off. Is such a tease. Plane left late and kept us in very hot cabin."

Pros: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Terrible check-in (30min waiting), boarding was uncoordinated, and the cabin was probably 30 degrees!"

Pros: "We made it in one piece"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hour delayed while passengers were on the plane. There was no communication whatsoever. Once we left, tv and entertainment along with WiFi were never working during the flight. Very small and uncomfortable plane."

Pros: "The entertainment was a nice touch, the food and drinks given, and the restrooms were clean."
Cons: "Crew was a little unfriendly, they missed us for lunch and we had to ask."

Pros: "Got ticket for a good price."

Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."

Pros: "Excellent service, great to see people smiling and happy to be there."
Cons: "Their WiFi is terrible."

Pros: "Its was sooo goood, thanks"

Pros: "The seats are not as luxurious as the international. They do not recline that much and are not pods. No surprise as that is similar to the US. But it was only a 3 hour flight so was fine. Food was same as first trip, solid.. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. They did not communicate at all the reason. Takeoff was supposed to be 8.30pm, didn’t take off until 11pm. Sat on the tarmac for over an hour and the crew or pilot did not say a word. The beverage service again was lacking compared to other international business class flights I’ve taken."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."

Pros: "kayak was poop for help for me."
Cons: "The flight from BTV to JKF was cancelled day of departure, within a mere 4 hours of take-off. I only received an email.... This, in turn, caused a domino effect for the remainder of my flights and travel plans. I had to PURCHASE brand new tickets and go through a refunding debacle, not through Kayak but another third party whom actually held the tickets. FIASCO is the word! Kayak did not even recognize the cancellation and continued to try and check me in to flights i was not on. Such a headache.. I will not be using this service in the future"

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"

Pros: "The Entertainment system was best I have seen."
Cons: "Flight attendants had crappy attitude, hardly spoke English, spilled a drink on my lap and only managed a sorry when I spoke up."

Pros: "crew was wonderful."
Cons: "leg room slightly tight for 12 hour flight."

Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."

Cons: "Service on this flight was significantly better than the Cairo flight, probably just because this flight goes to London. Welcome drink were promptly served but the food choice was still a big no-no. EVERYTHING CONSISTS OF DAIRY PRODUCT THAT I M ALLERGIC TO. When I brought this to the flight attendant's attention, none of them was apologetic and none of them tried to find out another solution to me, who was flying their airline the first time and didn't know the not-so-diverse food option."

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Too many ads and promotional messages, not letting to use entertainment system much."

Cons: "No vegan or even vegetarian meals. Very disappointing"

Pros: "They accommodated my service dog even without being in the system.They are always very nice and look after me perfectly!I was super late for boarding on the way from NYC and they helped me out!"
Cons: "I called the Customer service to let them know I have a service dog and she wasn't in the system neither the way to Hungary or back!I had a little trouble because of that!I asked to sit at the isle for the same reason and they gave me a seat and then moved me because they said I cannot sit there with a dog.They wanted to give me a middle seat but fortunately a nice girl swapped with me for the Isle seat!"

Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice food"
Cons: "Bad crew. I was so thirsty and asked for water several times but never got them. Left the plane with a huge migraine"

Pros: "Passing comforter The headphones for TV (full headphones red) Entertainment options"
Cons: "The seafood plater and breakfast platter egg Bathroom was dirty (water spill)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Would not refund my ticket or make changes. Turkey is full of terrorism and all Americans have been evacuated from this country and the airline would not refund me. They kept my money and robbed me."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment were excellent"
Cons: "Seat assignments I made on line got changed."

Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."

Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"

Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"

Pros: "Good food. Wide choice of beverages. Entertainment. Flight is only 1h 45min Departure on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."
Cons: "The bording process, the customer service and attention."

Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."

Pros: "Getting off the plane, getting on the plane"
Cons: "The inhumane incarceration that was the overnight layover. I had no idea it would be so awful and regret having booked with Turkish Airlines"

Pros: "Great short flight, even with a meal!"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Efficient and on time. Part of Star Alliance. Much better than any domestic USA or low cost European airline."
Cons: "Nothing negative"

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, great price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like the fact that for almost 11 hours I was fed, entertained, and was able to rest. The flight crew was very hospitable and I would very much recommend it to others. The price was also very reasonable, unlike United or some other major carriers. It says something about your airline when I decide to fly through Istanbul, coming from Rome, to go back to the US. It's a longer flight but it's a worthwhile one. Thank you and keep up the good work."

Pros: "The service is amazing Food is great"
Cons: "Boarding was interesting"

Pros: "Food was excellent,lemonade was great"

Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me who was upset that I had to go to the bathroom."

Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19...still waiting for refund ??"

Pros: "It’s OK"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Cons: "No screens or headphones on board, you had to download an app on your phone and use your own earphones to watch a very limited amount of films/tv shows. Very tight seats, not reclining enough. It was like being on a low cost flight but for 5 hours. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Next time give money back to people for cancelling or changing flights. Never flying with Kayak again"

Cons: "Rushed boarding at ccj"

Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"

Cons: "The food was of very poor quality and no alternatives. Went hungry the entire flight."

Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."

Pros: "Plane was clean especially bathroom, chairs were comfy, good entertainment options"
Cons: "It took forever to check in and board. Colombo airport is a bit disorganized. Vegetarian meal was 2 types of pasta no vegetables"

Pros: "Boarding in this time was quick, flight was delayed by almost 45 minutes but pilot made time and we were only 10 to 15 minutes late landing into Singapore. The only redeeming quality was the nice gentleman next to me who was helpful."
Cons: "Food was quite mediocre to be honest."

Cons: "Hassled at gate since I had my boarding pass on iPhone from Etihad and no a paper boarding pass, was held up and was one of last persons to board airplane"

Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Food was just very normal and lack variety. Should provide more options."

Pros: "MUTTON WAS EXCELLENT"
Cons: "SAME MOVIES BOTH FLIGHTS"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Unorganized lines for check in at JFK airport. Wheelchair was not provided, though it was requested before a month. Customer service rep didn’t try to call for a wheelchair."

Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."

Pros: "There is nothing much to like about the flight. The only good thing about Etihad is the pre clearance option at Abu Dhabi that saves a lot of time after landing in the US"
Cons: "14+ hours of flying time where it can be done under 10 to 12 hours. Food is not good at all."

Pros: "Easy connections ,good flight ,food"
Cons: "Check in at JFK took ages as the ground staff just didn’t bother about balancing queues versus available agents. One quueue moves fast and the other got stick . Some of the agents were novices After boarding some passengers couldn’t find place for their carry on a. They were rudley informed that they are carrying large carry ones and were threatened with deboatdong if they weren’t fast in finding alternate places for their bags"

Pros: "Timing were good"
Cons: "Crew UPLESENT AND UPSET TRIED TO BE UNHELPFUL Diappointed on staff Food was bad. Should give people smaller options but provide something edible"

Pros: "Food was good."

Pros: "Ample storage available in window seat. Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private."

Pros: "The food was delicious (there was lamb at multiple meals) and the flight attendants had everyone close the windows so as to help with the jet lag."
Cons: "I had a lot of issues with Etihad this trip. First, they changed our return date no less than 3 different times, one of them by more than 2 days. Then, they wouldn't allow us to pick up our checked luggage for our layover in Abu Dhabi because it was under 24 hours long. Unfortunately, while we made our connecting flight the next day, our luggage did not. We ended up spending 3 days without luggage, and ultimately went to the airport ourselves in order to make our tour."

Cons: "From the trip to india and the way back, The experience was horrible. The staff was rude and unwilling to help. Compared to other airlines very bad customer service. I will never fly Etihad again. I will actively tell people not to fly Etihad. At the Ahmedabad Airport they were unwilling to help and very rude!"

Pros: "All crew members were 5 star and so friendly! They checked many times on everyone, coming along with water often."
Cons: "The attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. very old on flight - dress warm!"

Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Cons: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country.

Cons: "Myself and my wife were assigned seats away from each other. Business class seating was not as good as in some other airlines that I have travelled. If husband and wife and family are travelling together on a long flight it should be possible to seat them close to each other"

Pros: "Nothing much. Flight was delayed and no apology was given."
Cons: "The food situation was weird. Only some passengers were given food. Also I didn't see any selection of movies."

Pros: "Leg room was okay on the flight. The meal served was excellent and the portion was just right. It was a nice surprise for a flight of it's length. We were happy with the overall experience of the airport staff and the airline crew. The seating area at the gate was the most comfortable of all terminals we passed through"

Pros: "I had to stay forceibali at Dubai overnight they did not give my boarding pass earlier."
Cons: "Also flight attendant did not serve water or snack in time we had to call attendant many times."

Pros: "I like the service.People are very helpful in the airport"

Cons: "The flight was held on the tarmac for nearly 40 minutes. It was a full flight with no air ventilation and the heat was overwhelming."

Pros: "Dont deal with onetravel"
Cons: "U still alone without onetravel"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew!"
Cons: "Rough landing"

Cons: "the check in and boarding took almost 2 hours of waiting in line... the flight itself, you had to pay for everything including water... nothing was included... and it was an extremely rough flight... I thought the pilot was going to crash twice once when we started our decent and once when we landed"

Pros: "relatively clean"
Cons: "I was NOT impressed with this airline. I have never been on a transcontinental flight that did not provide on board entertainment or food. I thought the absence of both was ridiculous. Plus I went to try to read the news option- which was actually free and the papers were from 2014!!!! WTH?!There is no room to put everything- no pouch in the seat ahead of you so nowhere to put the food or drink that you have to bring on board or any of your travel things. I have no idea why. The FlyDubai terminal in Dubai is also quite lacking- I felt like I was trapped in crappy restaurant. I'm not certain that I will ever use use this airline again- not impressed."

Cons: "It took too long to board"

Pros: "I like nothing"
Cons: "Even planket on the air craft for the frozen A.c. for old handicap pepole was paid !!! Not only bad survices no any surviced If ane passenger suffocated i think they will request paid bottle of water"

Pros: "Good for an LCC."
Cons: "Termiinal 2 at Dubai is very overcrowded. As I bought this flight as part of an Emirates ticket, it would have been nice if a meal would have been included."

Pros: "Nothing. Zero."
Cons: "We stood on a bus for 15+ minutes waiting to board. We boarded, crowded plane with small space, and now my luggage is lost. I paid a lot of money for my business class ticket on Emirates only to have a second flight that was terrible in every way. No one seems to care where my bag may be- I am trekking in 2 days and I have NOTHING to use!! I’ve called every number I can find and emailed fly dubai- each person had shown very little care and not one person can even tell me if my bag left Dallas. Unreal."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "- flight late one hour. - A/C of the plane was too warm. - food too poor and I don’t have a problem with the payment. - cabin crew not helpful at all."

Cons: "Simply that was a bus .... not a plane!"

Pros: "The overall was ok"
Cons: "The return flight was expensive with no luggage allowance. We pay lots of many for one 18 KG. I don't know why 3 tickets not get allowance for at least 21 KG! is that will make the flight go down?!"

Cons: "One family 2 person!!! One in row 20 & the other row 32 very crazy"

Pros: "Excellent service all around, much better than the Air Asia experience. Excellent complimentary food packet was a surprise."
Cons: "Entertainment system is a mess. Even if paid service, the touch screens do not work and worse, they are energy inefficient with the screens HOT to the touch. Doubt they make any revenue to recoup the investment."

Cons: "I had to rebook my flight from DXB to Jed because some international regional issues that were supposed to be cleared for the customs"

Pros: "Inexpensive, but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Seats are almost laughably small, both in pitch and width. The plane was very hot during boarding as they use both doors and the wind blows through the entire cabin."

Pros: "The terminal we were waiting in, not organised well, very messy, smelling very bad except in lounge that Cost 40$ for 2 hours with discount. So I'm having a layover 12 hours, I pay 240$ just I can sit in a non smelling place and eat some food. Adjust some of these and would be great. Other terminals have so much to offer in same airport, over rated Dubai airport."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everthing"

Pros: "The crews were great on both legs of the flight. Seating was not too bad. When boarding finally started, it was fast."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed, and in both situations no one would tell anyone what was going on. Leaving passengers in the dark about their travels is a terrible experience."

Cons: "Arrived 40 min before flight and was denied access. Lost my first plane."

Pros: "there was nothing special to like words "cheap airlines" got a really true meaning with Flydubai i will use then only if there will be no other possibility it is not about the crew it is about the "politics" of it"
Cons: "i am 6'8 tall so normal seats are not for me just wondering why having a free row ( no 15) of exit seats in the flight from Dubai to Zanzibar i needed to pay for it and on my way back row 15 was free of charge? one way charge one way not? something is far from easy to understand..and why having a combined flights (Emirates and Flydubai) i couldnt check in online? and will i get any response?"

Pros: "To be honest nothing in fly Dubai are good"
Cons: "I the foods are very expensive."

Pros: "The only thing that I liked about this flight was the it took off and landed safely."
Cons: "The flight was hot, the attendants were rude, and seemed to feel as though they were burdened a passenger requested something. They did not offer water to anyone (especially elderly people) when the A/C went out. They also lost my bags, and would not deliver them."

Pros: "Option to buy food. 30 mins only from Dubai to Doha"
Cons: "Delay in take off by about 30 mins. Ground services in Dubai sucks and you are treated like low/no class passengers if you fly with other airlines apart from emirates. Transport bus from Term 3 to Term 2 via Term 1 make extra stops as per driver pleases. This would be last time I go via Dubai on other airlines non Emirates. Toilets in Term 2 also sucks and would rather go on the plane...."

Pros: "The food was okay - most flights don't include food, we were given a $12 box of food for free since it's a 6 hour flight. It was worth about $1"
Cons: "None of the touch screens functioned, but they did show ads There is literally no leg room for a normal person, but seats still fully recline (crushing your neighbors) They play a loud ad for their inflight entertainment before the flight (even though it was not working) They started drink service and then called the flight crew back - no water/drinks for 6 hours Announcements on the PA were totally inaudible"

Cons: "The hostesses and host in coach were not friendly."

Pros: "There was flight entertainment but had to be purchased. Food had to be purchased. For international flight, I found it very inconvenient to travel with this airline. Worst of all, I did not realize that in order for me to continue to my connection flight to Dubai, I had to get my luggage, apply for Turkey visa and leave the transit area and check-in again. There was no assistance on the flight nor outside when we arrived to guide passengers to the connecting flights. Overall, i would not recommend this airline nor, Easyjet (Amsterdam-London) and Skypicker the company that booked my flights to anyone. I found overall experience, frustrating, unprofessional, delays, luggage weight limitation, unnecessary visa requirement, etc."
