Premium economy on Emirate A380 is simply the best non-business class product. In fact its probably better than many business class if the seat isnt lying flat. The food and service is close to perfect!
Everything was perfect... especially air hostess were excellent in attending people.
Pros: "The crew.. And the quality of the aircraft. Plus the on time departure and arrival was fantastic"
Cons: "The TV show collection was a bit of a letdown"
Pros: "I like the most........ very comfortable take off n landing .... special compliments to the captain.... I specifically told this to an airhostess"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Did not have all the food options listed"
Pros: "Flight schedule is perfect for a family."
Cons: "Crews are not responsive to my call during the flight."
Pros: "The service is the best."
Cons: "The seats on the Boing 777 don't compare to the seats on the Airbus from Dubai to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough, take-off was roughly on time, and the flight as a whole was a bit faster than predicted. Friendly flight attendants. Plenty of entertainment options (movies, TV, music). AC outlet on seatback made it possible to charge devices in-flight."
Cons: "Food was so-so, and not particularly healthy and loaded with carbs (e.g. potatoes plus crackers plus pasta salad plus very sweet desserts), but overall somewhat typical for air flights in my experience. Seat pitch (aka leg room) was basically adequate for me (6' 4"), but not great. Touch screens on entertainment system on both outbound and return flights were a little wonky -- needed re-calibration, so it was impossible to activate virtual buttons near the edges of the screen."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The crew was very helpful. Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Long flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."
In flight entertainment system including wifi were down and passengers got tortured for the 16 hours flight without any of these. Food was spoiled as well for the first meal provided but second meal was Ok. Overall a horrible experience which was not at all expected for such a long haul flight which was expected to be THE most memorable part of my planned trip for family.
Pros: "Non-disruptive 15-hour red-eye flight from Hong Kong to New York was appreciated. Smooth and comfortable flight, no complaints here."
Cons: "In-Flight Wi-Fi was not available once reaching the continental United States."
Pros: "Good leg room and nice recline for economy. Good and service very nice."
Cons: "Everything was well done and organized."
Pros: "Crew are friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late, seat tray was dirty, and entertainment system hard to use."
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable even though there was plenty of leg room"
Pros: "Airlines staff took my complaint seriously and found the bag at Hongkong airport. Later the bag was brought to SFO and delivered at my temporary stay. Very good job done."
Cons: "On arrival on 10th Sep at SFO, I found one of my checked-in baggages was missing. This made me bit worried. I made a complaint to airlines staff there. Some inconveniences caused since I kept my needed cloths in that bag."
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Great food, great movie selection."
Cons: "Delay in serving wine for 12hr flight, then did not refill wine with dinner service. Also ran out of breakfast dim sum."
On the flight back the seats where very uncomfortable, they where so bad that my back started to hurt after the first 2 hours. I can sit in a wooden chair for 2 hours. But these where just horrible, it just shows how cheap the airline has become. And the cabin was heated all those people in a heated cabin during a night flight. It was clear the climate control was not working. To top that off you are not even offered a glass of water, these people are animals.
We purchased a Go First Pass for 10 Euros each so we could board first, but everyone was able to board at the same time so we wasted 20 Euros. The flight left ab out 15 minutes late and was not allowed to land at Healthrow so we had to circle Heathrow for about 45 minutes. This caused us to almost miss our flight from Heathrow to Atlanta.
Severely delayed with no notice. Could have arrived at the airport hours later had we been informed of the delay
Once the boarding sign went on and all passengers gathered in line, we were left waiting standing up for almost an hour because there was a delay.
It would be nice to have vegan options for meals. The entertainment was not working on the the way to Austria. It was only available near the end of flight to Canada. The service was excellent.
The business class layout on this plane is tightly packed and atrocious with no sense of privacy.
Pros: "The crew was amazing and took measures to make the flight Covid safe"
Cons: "The food was not the best and Twistees weren't available. Also the seats felt narrow"
Pros: "From checkin to luggage collection - the flight was easy and without hassle. We left slightly later than scheduled but arrived slightly earlier than scheduled. Staff from check in to those onboard we polite and professional. The aircraft was clean, bright and appeared in good order."
Cons: "Luggage collection took a little while longer than I would have expected - only a minor point, nothing to change airlines for."
Cons: "Both times into Rome we had to wait on the tarmac for stairs. Either get more stairs or book fewer flights. The planes get hot in July while you wait endlessly on stairs."
Cons: "Check in was a mess. I paid for a seat but was given a seat at the back. Fortunately, I had the print out and insisted to Ck it."
The flight was canceled 2 days before, without any alternative offer
Pros: "I was traveling with a handicap, the staff was very polite, patient and helpful"
Cons: "We did not make this flight due to an unrealistic connection time. We had to buy a new ticket to get to our destination."
Pros: "The crew on the plain were great"
Cons: "The flight was delied and no one let us know The ground crew wasnt nice at all, even a bit meen..."
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours when the boarding du"
Cons: "The seat space was cramped, I paid extra to reserve my seat but it doesn't do you any favours. The aeroplane was old and needed modernisation. It was lacking in basics like netting/storage on the back of the seat Infront. Budget airline is a budget airline I guess."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good leg room."
Cons: "Magazine racks on back of seats would have been good."
Cons: "Boarding took long time took ages for a coffee . Stag and hen parties very loud and rowdy"
Pros: "Easy trip. Crew relaxed, short flight."
Cons: "The process of getting on the flight is the most exhausting part: distance to Terminal 1, multiple screenings and checks, then another long bus ride to the plane. The flight itself was is the easiest part at this airport."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Poor flight and poor service on Air India service back to US
Pros: "The itinerary and the fact that the flight was uneventful was the only good part."
Cons: "The gentry itself"
Pros: "Crew was excellent serving food and beverages when needed. Answering and helping with toiletry needs too"
Pros: "Crew was answering and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment if not available should be able to switch the power off"
Cons: "The food can be better. There was no proper message regarding delay."
Cons: "There were no fans or AC running before takeoff and we had to sit in a hot plane for an hour. My seat wouldn't stay reclined. My child's entertainment system froze early on and no one fixed it. One of the toilet seats was broken. Airport checkin lines were very poorly managed."
Pros: "It was in time. No issues with luggages"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat reservation but they gave me just random seat not the one I picked."
Pros: "The flight crew was awesome. Very friendly and welcoming. Served well even in between the scheduled service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. No reason given other than operational issues. What does that mean? All airport staff sucked at both airports. SFO more so. They broke my bag. There was no agents around for an hour.. Then they said 40$ is the maximum they pay for a broken bag!"
Pros: "That's all you need to know. Crew was courteous - only one person rolled her eyes when I asked for some extra coffee. So things could have been worse."
Cons: "oh boy that entertainment system - reminds you of how poor technology can be more frustrating than nothing at all. Late flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time, air hostess were very kind and professional, good drinks"
Cons: "old airplane, uncomfortable seats, food was not very appetizing."
