Great service, food was amazing
Emirates canceled the booking on me without any explanation. There was no reason given and no option to rebook. Ended up rebooking on a different airline for double the original price that was locked with Emirates. Even though the refund was processed reasonably expeditiously, this experience is unacceptable.
Pros: "Crew & food was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was very good and helped whenever it was needed"
Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"
Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"
Pros: "The crew was helpful. Flights were on time."
Cons: "The transfer in Dubai was to be made in 75 minutes to another terminal where the inter-terminal bus only comes every 40 minutes. Almost lost my connecting flight. Also, the seat on the FRA - YYZ leg was 23A. Couldn’t be reclined and had no leg space. Painful!"
Pros: "Today amazingly the service was too good, the hostesses were coming forward and asking if we needed something and making the journey comfortable."
Cons: "Was nicr"
Pros: "ICE program and WiFi made the trip comfortable."
Cons: "Depending on the plane, you may not get comfortable seats and have difficulty using the touchscreen. The cabin crew is a bit slow in responding to requests and show attitude."
Pros: "No one gave me food. I pressed the button to request services, and had to wait for two hours until someone finally came and get me a drink (the flight was about 3 hours long). This was the worst flight experience that I ever had. Very bad."
Pros: "The ground staff at Emirates check-in counter who so kindly changed my seating to isle as requested and updated my Skywards membership nbr on their data base. It enabled me to board the flight amongst the 1st and business class passengers."
Cons: "Nothing in Particular"
Pros: "The legroom"
Cons: "The food was fine but was too late so my son felt as sleep before that."
Cons: "Shitty boarding like in all India airports"
Pros: "Friendly, capable crew. Seats very comfortable - properly flat/horizontal beds."
Cons: "Connection was too rushed in Dubai. It seemed odd that they treated it as a night flight (dark cabin), given that it left at 10am - is this for the convenience of the staff?"
Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worst flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Pros: "My third time with Emirates. This time on an Airbus A380 from Prague to Dubai. Simply put, wow! Everything about this aircraft and flight was outstanding, from the aircraft itself, to the crew to the in flight service and the comfort of the seat,"
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Really."
Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."
Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Wonderful service. Great entertainment. Excellent service all round."
Pros: "Second legs entertainment system was brilliant."
Cons: "To offer only one meal on a 7 hr flight seemed quite stingy, although the quality was very good."
Pros: "Overal very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Sat on plan after boarding for an extended time before takeoff. I think it was a maintenance thing. It happens so no biggie. Table and magazine pocket needed cleaning from prior flights. Made me uneasy from a cleanliness point of view so they took a hit on comfort."
Pros: "Movie options were good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, service was poor crew took 20 mins to answer the request, our food was served very late, no legroom, no good snack refreshment options"
Pros: "Check in was smooth, flight was smooth and pleasant. Great food, great entertainment choices, great seat company. Best part was the hotel provided during my layover in the wee hours of the morning. I was able to sleep well and shower and was therefore more relaxed during the ensuing 14 hour flight."
Cons: "The online site didn't let us allocate seats even before 48 hours of schedule flight timings. Complimentary seats were allocated badly. Even when contacted with airline staff they didn't pass on the right information. We found on airport counter that exists seats opened before opening the airline counter at the airports whereas we are told that it would be allocated at the airport counter only. Misleaded at Dubai by airline staff that airport counter would open 3 hours before flight departure whereas we found and told at counter it was opened 48 hours before flight departure. Faced lots of inconvenience in allocation of complimentary seats. I speak with other co-passengers in the flight and found single complimentary aisle seats were allocared to passengers. They same opportunity was not extend to others having more than 1 seats in the flight."
Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise that I could not take my SLR camera on board as carry-on luggage and had to check it (they were doing this to everyone, not just me and it covered laptops, kindles, cameras, etc - everything electronic except phones). This was not done on the flight into Dubai. Also irritating was when I got to Boston, an Emirates guy cut open the packing envelope open and in the process, accidentally sliced the camera neck strap. He was, however, very apologetic and eagerly got me the info needed to submit a claim to Emirates."
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."
Pros: "Excellent experience. The airline I will be looking to fly from now on."
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg. they said they didn't get the request. Unacceptable."
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Cons: "Boarding was not organized Crew forget to return to you with your drinks The seats are NOT comfortable"
Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"
Cons: "16 hours transit in dubia without any service."
Pros: "Overall feeling on board, comfy seats and leg room, high standard of screen and remote control, free 2h wifi for all, quality of food and drinks"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly. On my first flight I wasn't even asked if I would like to drink something even though not sleeping and waiting to be asked (I think my complete line was forgotten), there was no smile and kindness, when entering the plane 2 people in front of me did not need to show their tickets so I put mine away - of course I had to show mine a 4th time then and look for it. So annoying. They all look pretty but could definitely be more service orientated."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment, food, and decent leg room in comparison to other airlines. Also, a plus they have a good beverage selection."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "it was a very nice experience. The leg room was good for economy. If one is comfortable they then enjoy all the accoutrements . food was good, entertainment, and staff was very good. there's always one when asked for help with a question would be every helpful all in all nicely done"
Pros: "Low fat meal was great! (the salmon one)"
Cons: "They broke my checked in luggage!!!"
Pros: "The airline still runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is efficient and staff are courteous. Flights are on time and reliable. DXB airport is easy to navigate. New on-board headphones design is an improvement."
Cons: "Cost saving cuts are evident around every corner. No more night mask, flight socks and toothbrush. No more hot lemon towel upon boarding (only towards end of flight). Food tray is smaller and more compact than before, turns Dinner into a game of Tetris (although, not a fun 'game'). Flights aboard A380 are much more comfortable than in Boeing 777."
Cons: "We had selected row 47 for our seats and this seat allocation was confirmed on our itinerary. However, at check in time, the airline arbitrarily changed our seats to row 83 without even letting us know. This is unfair and wrong. Wheelchair was booked but not provided . I think this is because of your staff please check it . It seems that it was sold"
Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."
I couldnt go on this flight and lost all my money over 1,000 UK Pounds as my visa to Myanmar was not accepted :(
After going back and forth with the airline, they never reimbursed the airline tickets. Went around asking multiple people how to get reimbursed and kept getting put back, not satisfied with their customer service.
Pros: "crew was efficient and friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant service is spot on, quick and most of all, very friendly!!"
Cons: "As for this particular flight, I wished they offered a premium economy class. It’s like your either rich or poor...economy or business class. To upgrade on this flight was $1850 each leg!!"
Cons: "Staff tried to accommodate my vegetarian requirements but with limited success."
Pros: "Crew good. Seat better than airbus seats!"
Cons: "There was no headset in my front pocket so I couldn’t watch any movie. Staff was busy doing meals and drinks over the 1.5ht window. When there was time, it was late to start any movie."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing compare to the past. Very active with excellent service mind."
Cons: "Just keep the level of service mind like yesterday on flight then Thai Airways will come back again."
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and attentive, the food was really excellent ( note I travelled in business)"
Cons: "The lay flat bed was good but hard, entertainment was good but having travelled the route 7 weeks ago, not much had changed - but a good choice. We were late leaving but arrived on time"
Pros: "First and only time on an Airbus 380. Amazing to see how such a large bird can leap daintily into the sky without any effort. Wonderful decor. Very pleasant and attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing negative, however was worried that the route might not be economical as such a large capacity plane was virtually empty. On the plus side, had empty seats all around."
Pros: "A young very professional crew made the journey a pleasant trip"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The Crew was very Good and yes the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think they did the great Job"
Pros: "Amazing crew members. The seat was comfortable."

Pros: "Easy flight, quite nice for such a short trip."
Cons: "It's a shame that there is no way to earn Star Alliance miles (United specifically) on the flights to Luang Prabang -- can't get them on Thai Smile and don't get Star Alliance Gold status benefits on this flight, even when booked through Thai Airways."
Cons: "No veg food option"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were consistently good."
Cons: "The plane felt old, and wasn't as roomy as the plane for Melbourne to Bangkok. It felt like we we're sqwished into a tin can - it was like flying 15yrs ago. The plane was extremely hot at the back of the plane, but not in other parts. The service was average and if you asked for something it was done begrudgingly."
Pros: "checking in, the agent pointed out that I had a middle seat. I thought I had reserved an isle. She fixed it."
Cons: "boarding using bus!"
Pros: "sit was ok. stef was 100%"
Cons: "morw games in screen"
Pros: "Food & services on the plane were great."
Cons: "The boarding process can be improved. I traveled with children (7 & 8 years old) and normally we would get the shortest line. But this time we had to board with other long lines which not so comfortable for our children. Also the flight was delayed by 20 minutes. Thai airways should really be improved on this area."
Pros: "Speedy boarding, early arrival and generally comfortable flight."
Cons: "The food choice was limited - and it was spicy which didn't suit me or the children. The flight was a little bumpy."
Cons: "The plane was a very old B777-300 and the air conditioning did not work so the whole flight was very warm. The cabin in general was very dated and cramped. Having flown the A350 to Bangkok which was newer and much better, did not see why they couldn’t operate the flight back on the same platform"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "We arrived plenty early at terminal 2 like the confirmation said. Only to find that over night they changed departures to terminal 3. No signs. No one there to give instructions. Just a security guy saying “take sky train “. We had plenty of time so it was more annoying than anything. So we arrive at the gate and the are having a party to inaugurate the new gate and terminal. I’m glad they celebrated. Haha. Got to laugh. The big crowd at the celebration were passengers who were delayed bordering so they could have a celebration. Part of the adventure."
Pros: "Food served is nice especially the croissants"
Pros: "Service was great, food options were good. I have no complaints."
Cons: "I have not complaints about this trip."
Pros: "Great legroom in exit row, staff very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding terrible, utter chaos, seat very narrow"

Pros: "Service and entertainment"
Cons: "Not so satisfied with food"
Pros: "Whole experience was excellent"
Cons: "Food not up to previous Thai Airways offerings"
Pros: "OK, so it's a plane, and I'm in economy. Still, the crew makes you believe they're actually glad you're on board, and the amenities are quite good for economy travel. No complaints."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew were very attentive & nice. Great customer service."
Cons: "It’s time for the 747 to retire. It looked tired and worn."

Pros: "Spacious leg room when seat is in an upright position"
Cons: "Headphone connection was bad. Crackling sound was constant...at times lost sound completely."
Pros: "I really love Thai Air business class internal flights. Great seat layout like the long haul privacy. Thai Air staff always excellent and even on this 70 min flight they serve a hot Thai meal rather than cop out with sarnies. Also was llucky on the flight down to HKt was on a brand new Dreamliner, I think they were testing. Wow! Multi coloured calming lighting and no window blinds ! 5heh work electinically like polarised glasses! What next! Highly recommend Thai Air for business class."
Cons: "Flight from koh samui to bkk cancelled and has to spend 2 hours on phone to arrange another flight. Catamaran gave me the wrong phone number for calling thai airways. Thai airways/vayama had originally booked me on another flight without confirming it would have been ok. Terrible in flight service especially on way back."
Pros: "Vegetarian food was ok. Crew was very polite and helping."
Cons: "Economy class Seat was hard, did not move back much, had very less leg room, thus uncomfortable, couldn't sleep on the flight"
Pros: "It was drizzling, as is often the case in the monsoon season. There were so many clouds and I didn't expect Himalaya mountains. However, I was surprised to find majestic Mt. Everest! It was a great farewell gift from Nepal! After being impressed with Himalaya, I could enjoy movies during the flight."
Cons: "The seat pocket was broken."
Pros: "Unilike the flight from Sapporo, there were some empty seats in this Nepal flight, and I've generally enjoyed it."
Cons: "The Thai food during the flight was generally OK, but there was artificial smell and taste when I ate desert."

Cons: "old 747, seats not very comfortable"
