Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."

Cons: "Kids food. Chairs weren't comfortable until I reclined it back. Felt like I was bending forward when in the upright position."

Cons: "No it was good"

Pros: "Crew and flight comfort were fine until the flight got canceled after sitting on the plane for over an hour"
Cons: "Wasn’t happy with the accommodation after the flight cancellation, was told no other flights for 3 days so I ended up paying $250 more to get on a different airline that day to make the wedding I was going for."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room and the crew were very helpful and attentive."
Cons: "None which I can recommend."

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"

Pros: "The size of seats , the food and the service"
Cons: "The entertainment system had few glitches but workable ( flickering banners of the channel or sound, volume"

Pros: "All the teem all the services"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "No response when requested for help from flight attendants multiple times from SEA to DXB. Every time I have to walk to them for help."

Cons: "Leg space horrible. Wasn't even able to fold my legs just a bit, was stuck in one position resulting in severe neck pain."

Pros: "Lovely flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew and attempt to help with anything I needed"
Cons: "Limited leg room for a big guy like me. My cancelled flight from Boston to phx was too long of a layover"

Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash"
Cons: "We were offered no form of refund, miles, or anything after a 6 hour layover. We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "My entertainment system was not working and the crew wasn’t very helpful about it."

Pros: "Overall top service."
Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"

Cons: "I like it"

Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."

Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."

Pros: "I liked the service but the problem is carry on bags"
Cons: "Carry on bags they're taking my small bags I don't like it they did to cargo"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."

Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "Crew were efficient and moved things through"
Cons: "Food could be improved as was movie selections"

Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"
Cons: "Food quality is still good but slightly below previous experiences"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Need Indian tea"

Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Cons: "The planes still seem dated on the interior, but entertainment system is expansive."

Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."

Cons: "I was expecting a ve"

Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."

Pros: "All went fine"

Pros: "The crew was bery rude and not helpful at all. Worst airline we have ever used"

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth, they give you a little pacquet that includes tootbruch and toothpaste, eye covers and socks. Food was ok, entertainment system is second to none."
Cons: "Some of the crew were a little rude when asking questions or just approaching them for simple things like our entertainment system not working. They weren't able to help us and it took me theee times to get them to pay attention to us."

Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"

Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the attention to detail throughout the flight."

Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."

Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "The bathrooms were dirty. There was water all over the floor. Announcements need to be made in different languages so that non English speaking passengers know that they have to remain seated until the aircraft comes to a total halt."

Pros: "Good overall experience."

Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"

Cons: "Complimentary varieties can be increased"

Pros: "Great giving free wifi and liquor"
Cons: "Food was bland and flight attendant were surly. Most disappointing was the high expectations we had of airline that didn't deliver."
