Pros: "The new A380 flight is very comfortable. The leg room even in economy was great."
Cons: "The in flight crew service was absolutely terrible. I was shocked to receive this kind of service by Emirates. I did not receive any assistance by the crew members even after pressing the call button and waiting for over 20 mins. Finally I had to get up and help myself. This was not just once but twice in a single flight. One of the stewards serving my area seemed very curt. The food was also terrible. My chicken dish was cold and very dry. Even the side bread was like a rock. The coffee that was served after the meal was cold. This kind of service is unacceptable on a 16hr trans Atlantic flight. Overall very disappointed with Emirates."

Pros: "Organized and quick boarding process, excellent service overall."

Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."

Pros: "That i landed"
Cons: "No snack and a drink when you get on the plane. Straight to lunch and the food is less than mediocre. I asked for water several times and never got it. The seats are extremely uncomfortable. The head rest is supposed to help but really you just end up sitting awkwardly with back spasms."

Cons: "Had to run across Dubai airport to make my connection. Nobody at the gate to direct passengers to their short connections under 20 mins. Horrible experience. A person without the ability to run at full clip would not have made the connection. This was an international flight from Los Angeles - Bags did not make the connection either and had to wait two days for them. If you issue tickets with short connection times, it is your responsibility to make sure passengers will have adequate time to make it to their next gate. Or airline should provide some assistance to these passengers. Making them run is unacceptable."

Cons: "Long time for boarding and staff is not clear on baggage policy"

Cons: "Layover time at the airport"

Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"

Pros: "Seats were large and comfortable. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that we had pre-booked, so they gave us an extra breakfast meal, which tasted bad and meant that we had the same meal twice (for dinner and breakfast). Additionally, our row (in the back of the plane) felt rather crammed in, and most of the overhead baggage space was taken up by blankets."

Pros: "The plane looked nice and was clean, entertainment, food is only so-so."
Cons: "Seats were too stiff (hard). Can't use my personal headphones because it doesn't support it (single plug). Food was so-so (generic and poor). Bathrooms were a mess."

Pros: "Pilot was good flying"
Cons: "Hospitality Food Serving I recommend to change the staff They are not serving as per ordered meal When asked for water no response till 1 hour Light indicated for assistance never bothered"
