Cons: "The guy on the second flight was a bit creepy"
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."
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "crew was attentive and seating was comfortable"
Cons: "they could have changed snacks..I had the same pizza when travelled four years back."
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."
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."
Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"
Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."
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: "Everything about it"
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."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Everything was very nice"
Cons: "I like everything"

Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."
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: "The staff were very courteous, especially Iliya. The onboarding staff were very friendly. I will definitely fly emirates again"
Pros: "I really recommend this airline. Is worth every single dollar that you pay. Everything is exceptional, the service magnificent, the food is good but the beverage choices are great quality. We really love everything about to travel in Emirates. We are considering to use this airline every time that our destination works."
Cons: "Since they pick up at your house until we landing you feel VIP"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "After my request for vegan was apparently not put through, the crew bent over backward to find food for me. Unfortunately I only got fruit which is not very satisfying. . In addition, a kid was seated behind me and repeatedly (and I do mean repeatedly) kicked me in the back and slammed the tray table into my back. The crew found me another seat and were extremely nice about it."
Cons: "My request for vegan food was lost - it is hard to feel comfortable for that long of a time period just eating fruit. (This is even after the crew from the previous flight tried to remedy the situation by notifying them.)"
Cons: "The connection in Dubai was horrible. The 30 minute bus ride is so ridiculous. It's very difficult to even find the Business Class Lounge. No greeters. No signage. Terrible service. Even pajamas are not provided in Business Class --- unlike on Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."
Cons: "Cannot choose seats without paying a fee which is ridiculous. There is no way to get a window seat on the plane. I have never travelling on a non window seat in my 20 years of flying until this time."

Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are cramped a bit"

Pros: "Loved every thing!! Great flight"
Cons: "There was one economy counter to check in. It took very long"
Cons: "Small and crowded seats arrangement"
Cons: "The line to checkin was THE LONGEST checking line that I have ever seen. Perhaps it was because the flight took off on Vriday afternoon when most Israei,I don't work snd there were an inadequate number of checkin clerks. But that is NO EXCUSE. I have also never been on a p,and with so many small children....who were VERY noisy. You should seat them all in one section, curtained off from other passengers. It was an unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Plain looks well kept"
Cons: "Waiting for someone to take the plate took almost the all flight. Food was terrible"
Cons: "screen not functioning should not serve meat or chicken with kosher meals this week through Tuesday, August 1. Period of mourning and kosher people don't eat meat or poultry during this period. Served fish on first leg from NY. That was good. sorry, this report is for return flight"

Cons: "Had no vegetarian food for me although I ordered it, the food I got as a replacement was bad."
Pros: "Was very pleasantly surprised. Thought there would be a problem because they did not at first seem to have a vegan option upon making a special request ahead of time, but it turned out that if you're vegan you can specify you wish to have a vegetarian meal that does not have dairy (no cheese, etc.) and has no eggs in it, either! Thanks for having this type of meal instead of the meat option!"
Cons: "Flight was too short, was sad when it ended, ha, ha, ha!!! It was like being on vacation even before the trip started, and before getting there!!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."

Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline.

And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."

Pros: "Seats, in flight entertainment"

"Even though I was had been double vaccinated weeks prior; arrived at the airport 5 hours early; had two negative COVID tests, including a PCR test I was forced to pay $225 for at the airport (the free tests do not have the fast result turn-around required by the Sri Lankan government); proof of a ride from the airport and lodging information; I WAS DENIED ENTRY TO MY FIRST FLIGHT. I was told I needed a special email from the government? I was told to email immediately and given a bogus email address? The one man, who was a "supervisor" for Etihad and refused to identify himself, kept berating me and told me explicitly that "you Americans are used to going wherever you like whenever you like BUT IT'S NOT THAT WAY ANYMORE!!!" I was dumbfounded. I should mention that I was unfailingly polite the entire time. I would characterize this employee's behavior towards me as abuse. I did try to call KAYAK for several hours but no response. This same employee kept intercepting me on the snake line and continuously prevented me from approaching the check-in desk. I should add that I was the only person waiting who appeared to not be of SE Asian or Middle Eastern descent as well as the only unaccompanied woman. While I cannot for certain that this had anything to do with the Etihad employee's targeting, I can say. that my experience was truly horrible. After 5 hours of attempting check-in, being prevented from approaching the check-in desk, and being continuously denigrated and lied to, I left the airport in despair. That was only the beginning of my troubles. Many weeks later, I still do not have a refund, or even an exchange, for my wasted ticket. I have spent countless hours on hold with KAYAK and their enterprise is absolutely criminal. I really can not afford to lose the price of my ticket, but I don't know how many more weeks/days/hours I can spend fighting for a refund for a flight I was prevented from boarding for no apparent logical reason? AVOID ETIHAD. AVOID KAYAK!! They have stolen my money and have been absolutely horrid. And if anyone from KAYAK reads this PLEASE REFUND MY MONEY. I am so deeply tired of this. The way you have treated me is so. very. wrong."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "Food needs to be improved. More space near washrooms and for moving around in long flights should be provided."
Cons: "Entertaintmebt was poor, and quality of screen was bad"
Cons: "- The plane was set to a freezing temperature all the time made it really uncomfortable flight for most of the passengers. - Etihad mostly runs short of veggie food and passengers are asked to go for non veg option. Not cool."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."
Cons: "I wish I knew that I could have get a room or food vouchers when I was ordering an e ticket("
Pros: "they are quiet but not as roomy as i hoped. The food was okay.prices in Abu dhabi are extortionate though for a 5 hr stop."
Cons: "The plane to bangkok from Abu Dhabiis a bean tin cram as many on as you can . the seat sent my backside to sleep for 3 days and my ankles and legs are badly swollen. disappointed and not looking forward to return flights"
Pros: "I enjoyed the quick flight and friendly staff"
Cons: "I ordered Jain food and the whole trip from Chicago to Mumbai I’ did not have Jain vegetarian food. I did not eat for 18 hours"
Cons: "Cleanliness could be improved. Washrooms were not serviced frequently"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."
Pros: "services are good. flight is on time."
Cons: "Movies don't work properly."
Cons: "1. Not smiley at all. 2. I asked for a blanket as my 2 yrs old was sleeping and I have to ask three times and finally I got it. 3. I asked for arrival form 40 min before landing and the air hostess said later and she didn’t give me one ."
Pros: "I found the crews and their services good. Food served was tasty and healthy."
Cons: "The seat layout wasnt good. In a Boeing 777-300ER generaly the seat layout is 3-3-3 in a row, where as in etihad aircraft it was 3-4-3 in the economy. Th seat was very congested for a long haul flight."
Pros: "The new A380 was great"
Cons: "It was freezing cold Trays were left in front of passengers for too long Entertainment options were poor"
Pros: "Friendly and professional. Always with a smile."
Pros: "Multiple delays which was due to poor management on the airlines side"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"
Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."
Pros: "first class service. Extra blanket, mealtime is anytime, seats recluned fully"
Cons: "no first class kit with socks. My feet get cold on the plane and the socks would have helped"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Checked in online and booked seats that had extra legroom. When boarding the plane seats had been changed and we were separated. Not happy about it. Agree with other reviewers re Abu Dhabi, not the most pleasant experience in the connections hall. A bit all over the place!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was OK."
Cons: "While going Airport staff was not at all good at Chicago airport. I had a carry on bag, which I had been using in all other airlines as carry on for last couple of years and never was told that the size is not right. I was asked to either check in carry on as extra baggage and pay $300 or put my carry on stuff in my other checked in baggage and pay extra for over limit $120. And I have to trash my carry on of $80 value. I was not at all happy. I noticed in the flight so many passengers have the same size carry on, which I have to trash. On my return journey from Delhi to Abu Dhabi I was talking to a woman in the security line, who was sharing the same experience and she told me that they charge her $400 for one extra suitcase. To me that was shocking as how come I was asked $300 for extra checked in bag and she was charged $400. No idea what kind of policies Etihad has for extra baggage. I would like Etihad management to pay attention to the airport staff dealings with customers."

Pros: "On our entire journey this leg had the friendliest crew. Surprisingly the A380 journeys had seats more cramped with poorer recline than this aircraft."
Cons: "The food definitely needs to improve. It is slipping back to the cliched term of 'airline food' Albeit extremely courteous and caring the crew seemed overwhelmed and understaffed for there were delays in providing drinks or a blanket (although they profusely apologised)"
Cons: "The toilet configuration is not good. It is cramped and the sink positioing makes It difficult to wash your teeth."

Pros: "Crew , seats and crew"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow although we did it online as they were serving all client without differanciating the online checked already."
Pros: "on time & Friendly hosts."
Cons: "I paid for extra space seats & what I get is seats smaller thane some of the regular economy seats, Entertainment earphone was bad effect voice quality, food was tastles."
Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Food could be improved upon and entertainment system should be available the whole flight"
Pros: "We boarded etihad for the first time and the experience was not good at all. Have two major complaints. The boarding area was very strict with the carry on laggage items size. My wife and I have the carry on bags, with which we boarded multiple domestic and international flights and never got a complaint from any carrier, but to my surprise, etihad staff mentioned that my bang is over sized in length and width and I need to check in. And second complaint is on Food. We selected Hindu meal, and the food was not good in taste and the options as well. We felt Air India, Qatar, emirates, Cathe Pacefic etc were better comparatively than Etihad. Staff were all good and supportive all the time."
Cons: "Food Boarding"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Wait,wait,wait. Overnight stay in a HARD AIRPORT CHAIR."
Cons: "Child screaming for 12 hours straight. No action taken to resolve."
Cons: "No dedicated bus or transport for first or business passengers!"
Pros: "Just average flight, nothing so special"
Cons: "the flight was so overbooked that I had to stand in the queue for an hour for check-in, All the overhead compartments were full and I could not put a small bag in it, the crew even did not bother to help me with it. Ultimately I had to stow it beneath the seat. The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "The food was nice. Vegetarian and non veg options were good for all the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding process was one of the most unorganised and pitiful for passengers I have ever seen!! Baggage check in process was a mess and the crew could not handle it. There were multiple lines at baggage check in for some reason for economy itself. We were guided by crew to one of the lines. Then after half hour, they put our line behind another line that arrived after us! Mismanagement led is to wait for nearly 2 hours at baghage check in. Also, the person at kiosk failed to check me in for connecting flight from Abu Dhabi(I was marked for airport checkin, so web check in was not an option). So when I reached Abu Dhabi, I was told my name was not even on the list!! Moreover I had only half hour layover at Abu Dhabi due to delayed flight from Mumbai . One of the worst experiences ever as it was also our honeymoon!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class, which was nice."
Cons: "Re food, I had salmon....it was very dry and tasted quite processed. There was no dessert, even in business class."
Pros: "Service Seats Flight attendants"
Cons: "Air condition was not good from Dhaka to Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "We were forced to sit in the aircraft after boarding for nearly 2 hours as the ground staff waited to load bags from delayed connections."

Cons: "boarding was not good, all times using buses. people inter plant from back entrance and front entrance and they meet at middle of plane with a lot of delay."
Pros: "L Are departure but timely arrival."
Cons: "Food is not great"
Cons: "One of the worst flight experience I have had. both website and boarding pass say go to terminal 2 but flight is actually from terminal 3.no offer of assistance, no offer of how to get to terminal 3 . Rude ground staff with zero ability to manage the complaint process."
Cons: "This one has multiple problems: 1. First no one clearly tells you where to go for FlyDubai flight and you really have to fight your way to get this information. 2. Then when you know that you have to go to terminal 2 for this flight, it takes them minimum 45 minutes to transport you from emirates terminal to terminal 2. 3. FlyDubai staff in general is less courteous and cooperative than emirates. 3. T2 is minimally maintained terminal with even basic amenities missing in some parts of terminal. 4. It also feels less secure."
Cons: "Flydibai changed the flight hours. The new layover in Dubai was 11 hours instead of 4. They refused to provide free hotel. It was disappointing."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The plane was very old with no padding in the seats. You could feel the back of the seat grinding into your back. Everything, including water, had a price tag, unless your flight originated from an international previous flight. During the four hour flight there was no entertainment available, wi fi was expensive, and flight attendants were practically non existent. Water......, a plain bottle of water, cost $2.00! I had to beg for a paltry cup of water that supposedly came with my flight. Fly Dubai is nothing near the service and reputation of Emerites. Other connecting airlines to Nepal are much better."
Pros: "Staff was great. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Did not want to check my luggage and was 2 pounds over. Now my brand new bag has a 6 inch slash in it."
Pros: "Good airline for a 3 hour journey...value for money."
Cons: "Most of the display units across the flight did not work properly."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"

Cons: "The flight was delayed more than two hours and there were no TVs on the plane"

Pros: "Awesome experience from manchester to dubai on emirates,outclass flight/crew/journey"
Cons: "Horrible transit in dubai,they keep taking you around in buses where u hav to stand in a bus to upto 40 minutes at a time,ridiculous,Terminal 2 in dubai is a shame,crowded like a bus station,And fly dubai planes have zero leg room"
Cons: "Not on time. Most entertainment screens not working. You choose a seat and you will find someone sitting on it amd the crew will simply say choose a seat in the back."
Cons: "Not on time. Most entertainment screens not working. You choose a seat and you will find someone sitting on it amd the crew will simply say choose a seat in the back."
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."
Pros: "I made it to my destinations (Amman and Dubai) safely."
Cons: "- Airport check-in line was ridiculous. Only two Fly Dubai agents working (1 for regular people and 1 for the crew) - Had to take a shuttle to board the plane. The plane wasn't ready/clean. Had to wait on said bus, packed like sardines for another 10-15 minutes. - Agents in Amman arrived late to the check-in desk and fumbled around for at least 10 minutes finding paper/logging-into the system etc. - MANY Customers stood up WAY before the pilot signaled it was safe. This has to be a safety regulation/problem. Flight attendants did nothing. - The screens/entertainment system on the flight didn't work. Absolutely useless."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The delays, chaotic checkin counters at Dubai, slow boarding, seating changes when on board, uncomfortable seats, no food or drinks on board and unfriendly staff"
Cons: "This is not exactly a low cost airline because FlyDubai charges egular prices for BEG-DXB flights, therfore, passagers should be offered a complimentary drink and food on a 5 hours flight for the price we paid."
Pros: "It was on time, which is always a good thing!"
Cons: "The check in agent was not very helpful. He said, "Would you like window or aisle?" I said, "Window please". He says, "there are no windows. I can give you an aisle." I said, "but you asked me if I wanted a window." He said, "you are too late" (as though it's my fault... but I was one of the earlier ones at check-in and was not able to check-in online!). He continues, "I can give you an aisle in row 23". I say, "okay". Then after I leave the check-in counter and look at my boarding pass it says I have seat 11B. Neither window or aisle! In addition, I flew this flight as part of an Emirates ticket and it was not cheap, and yet the FlyDubai segment did not include a meal."
Cons: "The price and the service"
Cons: "The detailes of no survives and every thing that is paid only apear after confermation of booking .. Cheating deals"
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."

Cons: "Your notifications"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "My in-seat entertainment did not work."
Cons: "Must pay for in flight entertainment...screen also did not work even when offered to pay 11 us to watch movies"
Pros: "i liked the fact that you showed my destination along the way!!"
Cons: "Simply that was a bus .... not a plane!"
Pros: "FlyDubai knows customer service. I would have given 15 stars out of 10 if it let me. I flew economy but was treated like first class. I will only book with FlyDubai for all trips. See you guys next month when I return to Dubai."
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?!"
Pros: "40 me on the flight knowing that that my connecting flight was cancelled stayed in Dubai for a day and a half without anyone helping me because I did not fly with Emirates to Alexandria horrible service customer service no one held I would never fly with this company ever again. Martha milagros Rivera"
Cons: "They did not give us food or drink, , They were selling everything even water."
Cons: "The staff was extremely rude and held up the boarding of the flight by shuffling passengers around for an extended period of time. check in for the flight took over two hours and there were less than 15 people ahead of me. Won't ever fly with flydubai again."
Cons: "They didn't even offer water. Worst hospitality. Ground staff have knowledge of anything. Worst experiance with Fly Dubai. Never recommend anybody."
