Smooth trip with excellent service.
Pros: "very good service"
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Got Pizza for snack both ways. Could have been changed, and with 16 hours non stop, water should be offered more often. Although we can go get it ourselves, don't want to disturb others in the seat row to get snacks or water."
Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."
Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."
Cons: "Shorten luggage wait time to arrive on the belt."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Helpful crew. Clean toilets."
Cons: "Overhead racks, so very difficult to close, always you need help. May a design fault."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "45 minute wait for luggage on conveyor belt"
Pros: "Business class service is good"
Cons: "Economy service sucked . No attendants even after pressing buzzer 5 times in an hour . Had to go get the service on own . Few hostess were unfriendly. Most of the times the nonveg meals were over . This is not the first time . Every time they complain things in Menu are over . I am stuck to fly this airlines for mileage"
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. People running over each other to board at TRV airport. Clear and helpful announcements may be needed but the ground staff is mediocre at best"
Cons: "I was sitting in emergency exit so i will not complain of small seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Still not there"
Cons: "I am still waiting in Dubai for the flight to Nice. The flight is 24 hours late"
Pros: "the entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew, instead of the usual isle by isle service kept the food trolly at the service station and bought back trays to passengers. This doesn’t have a clear logic to it, but the worst part was, was that they forgot where they were and I had to use my call button for a meal. People were skipped over and they mixed things up. Shockingly disappointing decline in Emirates service standard."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options with current movies."
Cons: "Limited leg and elbow room. Food too carb heavy."
Pros: "Breakfast and lunch were both tasty"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour for our bags at BHX"
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "The non veg food got over . My wife waited , but they told they dont have any more non veg food Emirates should plan accordingly rather than doing these cheap things"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "I ordered regular vegetarian meal and they served me Vegan meal! Also my flight from Chicago to Dubai on January 30 they didn’t offer me vegetarian meal coz they said I Didn’t select meal and they said they didn’t have extra Vegetarian meal!"
Cons: "The system delays before boarding the plane on 02/03. Otherwise the flight was pretty good."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The crew and my fruit platter."
Cons: "So many screaming babies. So many passsengers wanting a few upgrade. And a sick passenger that had to deplane resulting in delayed take off. The crew were saints- composed, polite, and embodied team spirit. So many screaming babies."
Pros: "The over all flight"
Cons: "The long delay of 13 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seat in business class on A380"
Cons: "Crew was awful. We paid a lot of money for Airport upgrade to business class because we were told economy was oversold. We were promised full business class service. On board aircraft we were not offered business class meal options as we were told they didn’t know how many people had upgraded. It was absolutely embarrassing when crew skipped us when drink and meal service were being ordered. Crew was obnoxious and dismissive about situation. Absolutely atrocious."
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and the food was passable"
Cons: "The number of children screaming and running up and down the aisles was ridiculous. Since parents can’t be trusted to stop their darlings from raising hell, the flight attendants need to. The poor old guy next to me looked like he might die from exhaustion after this long-haul hell. In other news, rushing us into the bus and then leaving us standing there for 30 minutes is not my idea of a good start to the journey."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Yuck."
Pros: "Great Business class! Excellent service."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as other middle eastern airlines."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The crew was very helpful. Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Long flight."
Cons: "We had several friends who made the same trip on other airlines and were not hassled about visas. We had all of the documentation that we were told to have by our friends and by travel agents... Emirates did not accept this and did not let us travel and refused to refund or change our tickets. Disappointment does not even begin to describe the emotion of losing this once in a lifetime opportunity."
Cons: "It was delayed for 50 mins"
Cons: "One baggage misssing, flight delay"
Pros: "Better food Meals were bland"
Cons: "Very far gate, long bus ride to reach plane"
Cons: "Very cold. Limited new/quality music to choose from..."
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. Unfortunately I do not remember her name. Thanks to her and her team I felt at home."
Cons: "Vegetarian food would be good if it was less spicy."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "The business class seat was too short for sleeping"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "Food, Service"
Cons: "Lack of Restrooms"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew; comfortable within the limits of economy class!"
Pros: "This airline is consistently great. Comfortable, lovely staff members, and great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Was a bit disappointed in the food this time."
Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."
Pros: "Up to date movies"
Cons: "The boarding in riyadh airport was crowded because it included all economy class travelersat once, it should start from A category till the last group. This should be rectified."
Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I will do again"
Cons: "Crew members are very arrogant at passengers they will not respond quickly .Food is not at all good"
Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!
Pros: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal. My ticket was from Riyadh to Bahrain, but when I went to the airport, I could not get on the plane, and the reason was that the flight was going to Dubai, not to Bahrain. Is there any solution to this issue, And where is my money? I will send you the ticket in the e-mail, and at the airport they said that it is not strange on your site that the traveler falls into this problem, how can you sell tickets to a particular destination without making sure, who bears the responsibility now?"

Cons: "Pillows for everyone and warmer temperature"
Pros: "Pleasant and efficient crew made a middle of the night flight (01.00 - 05.30) quite bearable! Food good too."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "Airplane very comfortable"
Pros: "On the 15th. Nov during my flight to India, I have made an online check in though did not receive an e ticket. I arrived the airport 70 min before the flight. The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."

Cons: "the bouth"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly, aircraft were very comfortable compared to other economic airway companies"
Cons: "Bahrain airport,"

Cons: "Entertainment system was limited with poor sound quality even in Business. Monitor is too distant in business. Food was mediocre. No announcement was made 45 minutes before landing in Tel Aviv, just an announcement at 30 minutes forbidding movement to the restroom. Tea and coffee were not offered frequently in Business even though several seats were empty and attendants were not overwhelmed. Announcements in English were confused and confusing. NO SIGNS at gate explaining 26 A was for business and 26 B was for economy and these gates were a 3 minute walk from each other. No staff to advise until finally an announcement. Lounge is ‘tired’ with limited food selections. Disappointing all around."

Cons: "Would be better if no breakfast provided, catering needs heavy reforms. No refreshing towels and No water provided when asked for several times. The staff /crew is very forgetful and needs to be reminded several times. They do not attend the toilets very regularly to check if they are clean. In total, the staff is very lazy and wet towels or tissue and other refreshment services are very limited. worst then some domestic flights I have traveled with."

Pros: "Every time I took the flight it landed always on time or before time."
Cons: "Overall the food was great other than parathas were uncooked. At the time of check in at Mumbai Airport we had to stand in the line for an hour and half cumbersome line. Why combine all flights pass passengers in one line? The attendants at the check in line at Mumbai were letting go foreigners in the business class line even if they were flying economic!!"
Pros: "No socks or toothpaste or brush."
Pros: "Friendly Crew. Spacious seating and clean aircraft. Food was decent though they kept running out of vegetarian trays."
Cons: "The crew needed to be more professional and prompt in their service. Forgot to offer coffee to my wife twice during the meal service and disappeared even when we requested it.

Pros: "Turbulence, higher than usual, lasting for an hour at a stretch. Plane dipped in altitude suddenly more than a handful of times. Plane was about to land at SFO, pilot suddenly decided not to, with sudden and accelerated plane movements. A kid next to me was thrown half a foot from the seat. Following this when the plane landed it was continuously 'wobbling'. This kind of piloting is not expected of a long distance passenger aircraft. Lost my trust in Air India as a safe flight. Will highly not recommend Air India to family and friends."
Pros: "Air India lost our luggage when we travelled from Delhi to Ahmedabad! This is not at all acceptable. We received luggage after 2 days. This made me think of not traveling with air India again just coz of this poor service! Hopefully you do something about this coz this is really inconvenient for the customers and I guess you already lost few! Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly, baggage came out quickly upon landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes. We were sitting at the gate and don't think we heard any announcements. Even boarding we just noticed people start lining up. Snack was a cheese sandwich which we couldn't eat because vegan -- would have been nice to have chips or something."
