Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Cons: "Under 2 babies did not get enough milk They should have baby food items cereals, crackers or baby foods options"
Cons: "Seats were so close together that when the person in front of me leaned back, my personal screen was inches from my face. Then when it was time to get the seats back up - none moved - they all had to be pulled up by many people."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "Excellent food, service and comfortable seats."
Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"
Cons: "Entertainment for a 4 hr flight was terrible"
Cons: "just did not like the baggage policy for carry on"
Pros: "Customer service and food."
Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"
Cons: "Seat didnt fit to me."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Food was better. Seating was comfortable."
Pros: "Very kind & friendly crew. Boarding was smooth & flight was comfortable. Food was good considering it's airline food."
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes late, with no explanation - even though we took off on time. Even with a short dog leg over Iran, we should have been able to make up any delay over an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Pros: "The courtesy and efficiency of the crd, an acceptable level of comfort inf the economy class."
Cons: "Food below average, command of the entertainment screen not convenient."
Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."
Pros: "Leg room in economy"
Cons: "4am in the morning. I wish it was around 12 or 1am or 7am in the morning."
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Pros: "The airport in Doha is beautiful with great amenities and shopping. The quiet rooms are especially nice for a long layover."
Cons: "The ticket was cheap because of very long layovers"
Pros: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Economy seats were too close to others. Entertainment displays on 777 planes didn't react well to touch. Too many large roller bags allowed on plane. Arm rests on A330 and 777 wouldn't go all the way up."
Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."
Pros: "Friendly used easy to use"
Cons: "The food was great but I think they really don't understand what an Indian or any other food is. Although food was cooked nice they names the dish with some Indian name and in India the provided combination is never offered"
Pros: "Same as stated for the flight BKK-DOH"
Cons: "I was quite happy with the facilities and service ."
Cons: "At Nairobi airport, we were waiting at the gate to board our plane. There was a lot of disorganization and confusion. A man made an announcement that we would need to go to another gate. He then retracted his statement and told us to remain where we were. My group was going to be pressed for time to catch our connecting flight. The confusion regarding take-off time and location was extremely anxiety-invoking. All of the people taking the flight had to walk quite a ways across the tarmac to board the plane. The flight itself was unremarkable."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. The food was excellent.the seats was comfortable."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was lengthy and totally unnecessary with the extra steps"
Pros: "Some crew members are not helpful with simple requests, not even an update about the request from multiple employees. Used to consider Emirates the best in hospitality. Food was awful on some parts of the journey."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were pretty stiff compared to the A380 business class seats on my preceding flight."
Cons: "Very nice"
Pros: "The crew good except one man i guess from India"
Cons: "The food was not good at all"
Pros: "Hospitality, service, crew and everything was well"
Pros: "Almost everything"

Pros: "For a 15 hour flight the crew made it comfortable"
Cons: "The restrooms were non functional by the end of the flight"
Pros: "Crew is great and on their game"
Cons: "Stuck next to and surrounded by crying babies on a long haul flight is terrible. So uncomfortable! Wish I could afford to upgrade but I suppose I must tough it out:/"
Pros: "Everything other than food"
Cons: "While they gave good AVML food on DXB-HYD flight, not sure what stops them from repeating it on SFO-DXB flight., It was worst to the end."
Cons: "Emirates charging for duty free merchandise bought in Dubai. It is ridiculous that they add the weight of the duty free merchandise to your carry on luggage and charge at the gate. If I have known that I could have shopped in Dubai duty free. The customer service person was very rude too."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "I travelled internationally after 4 years. When I boarded my flight in New York, nobody cared to weigh my carry obs. However at my transit, while I was about to board the next flight, they weighed it and asked me to pay 100$ extra. If the airlines didn't allow more than 7 kilos carry on, they should have weighed it at the beginning of my trip since I had lots of room left in my check in and would have adjusted the luggage."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "We like everything, was good experience All over"

Pros: "Food and entertainment. Didn't crash."
Cons: "There is no leg room, and the seats are so small that everyone ends up leaning on each other. Better pray that you neighbor doesn't show up. Ever tried to eat while in such close proximity to another human? Totally not recommended, yet it's a requirement on these flights. I was not able to eat at the same time as my neighbors. I let them eat first, then ate my food."

Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."

Pros: "The response and service of Airhostesses are outstanding. I have to mention specially the assistance their supervisor provided to me when I have felt a little breathlessness and her constant attention on me to ensure I am normal and comfortable.

Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"

I had 2 suit case one was 24.5 kg and other one was 25 kg, they wanted me to pay $132 for each bag or take out stuff to make it 23kg. Never met someone that horrible who doesn’t want to let it go.

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Even though we were redirected to a new gate/plane and had half hour delay, our plane arrived on time."
Cons: "Was stuck next to an overweight lady who was sitting partially in my seat and crowding me. My gate was changed and we were redirected to a ghetto looking area for the gate. My luggage was not delivered along with my flight and I had to file complaint to get it delivered.

Cons: "New policy (thanks TSA) that prohibits laptops in the cabin. Have to check them and risk getting smashed."
Cons: "We were asked to stand for boarding. And instead of having us board they boarded first class and handicapped people. I understand these people have the right to board first.

Cons: "Flight attendants (crew) need to be a bit more passenger friendly. Most of them just don't care about good service. I am a frequent flier having flied for 30 years nationally and internationally via numerous airlines. I am an "easy" passenger who is not demanding in any manner.

Cons: "Boarding process, slow and long - I have seen other airlines do it much faster. Crew were friendly, but lots of confusion among crew members. Entertainment was horrible - need new and latest movies. The latest movies available were months old. This makes the flight time feel a lot longer than it is."

When I asked them why my seat was changed even though I have confirmed the seat again when I had my boarding pass from their office in Dubai, but no one has answered my queries."
Cons: "this does not necessarily reflect in the airline, other than the fact the staff could really not do anything for me in Abu dhabi: the eithad staff handed me an email and told me i had to inform them that way. no designated lost and found, the local police were utterly unhelpful"
