Emirates is usually on time, but not this trip. Also, during the flight the attendants disappear unless called upon. Very strange. I have watched the quality of Emirates service diminish over the last five years.
Ok Check in and boarding was horrible - every time 15 minutes delayed which was done 6/7 times Bags were delayed by 2 hours at Bali airport
Pros: "Business class on Emirates is always top-class. Very comfortable. Friendly crew. Easy boarding and disembarking. Good drinks. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Food was a less impressive menu due to COVID, more like what you'd get in economy class. But we can't blame the crew for not wanting to do close-up personal service like in the past, during a pandemic. We enjoyed another drink to make up for the lower quality food!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was good. Seat wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Price should be a little less, comparable to that of Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!"
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: "Every aspect of travel was excellent, boarding, flight, crew services"
Pros: "Hard to say, it wasn’t a good experience. Flying from Bombay to Toronto was really bad."
Cons: "They broke my baby stroller, they didn’t bag with or handle with care. It was new stroller all damaged from Bombay to toronto flight."
Pros: "Food was not good at all. Crew response is poor for help. I pushed button for help and crew total ignored it. When I asked them when they came to serve food after 40mins, said they were busy to respond for help"
Pros: "The seats on the A380 are a bit larger and offer more leg room. The food is always good and the service is first class."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Blankets and pillows were ample and already at the seat."
Cons: "Food was worse than what I had come to expect from Cathay Pacific. Drinks were less frequent. Restroom facilities were not well kept over the course of the flight."
Pros: "Top notch service and experience. Up there with EVA Air as the best I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "Baggage delivery took very long in Hong Kong. Bags were coming off 35 minutes after the first bag came off."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was not the same plane I booked travel on. They changed it, so if it’s the 777 then it is basically widebody short haul seating in business, with a lay flat price! The seats are old and don’t work well. This has been an issue on all the flights I’ve taken between Tokyo and HKG."
Cons: "Extremely poor entertainment system - mostly old movies. No Bollywood movies"
Pros: "Vegetarian oriental meal was good. Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hr. I was not notified on time to go make arrangements to go to the airport a little later."
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."
Cons: "The accommodation/attendance from the flight crews. They looked like they have just been deployed from training."
Pros: "Innovative seating arrangements in business. Service was good."
Cons: "Comfort of seats and laying position are ok, a bit hard for 15 hours."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and diligent !"
Cons: "Food could have been better with some more options available onboard!"
Cons: "New menu is not appealing with lesser choice and smaller portions - inflight entertainment very limited choice - constantly disturb with meaninglessness pa announcement"
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: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "The female FA gave me an attitude when I asked about moving to a window seat"
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: "The flight itself was absolutely fine but we are very unhappy with the what lastminute.com did regarding our tickets. (As you will see when you look at the notes for our case). We shall be seeking legal assistance upon the return from our holiday & contacting you/lastminute.com for compensation."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Leaving on time (we were an hour late because of a discrepancy between number of passengers checked and number on board.) Would be nice to have at least a complimentary bottle of water."
Pros: "It was only an hour and a half from Rome"
Cons: "It wasn’t clear that my fare did not have free check in luggage. Check in luggage was very expensive! It’s going to cost me double what I paid my flight just to check in one piece of luggage in both directions."
The flight was canceled 2 days before, without any alternative offer
Cons: "Easy checkin Comfortable seats Fun cabin stewards Great flight Great price"
Pros: "I was traveling with a handicap, the staff was very polite, patient and helpful"
Pros: "Price of flight was good."
Cons: "Price of snacks is a rip-off. Seating is cramped."
Pros: "The crew was very nice but somewhat disinterested. Perhaps because their average age was 14?"
Cons: "The whole luggage thing is a nightmare! Ive never gotten SO many pre-flight messages! I kept paying MORE Euros, for an already overpriced flight.....and never was really sure what I was paying for??? And STILL had to smash one piece of luggage into the other??? I think ill do easy jet next time!"
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"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good leg room."
Cons: "Magazine racks on back of seats would have been good."
Pros: "On time flight and decent boarding process (not too much fuss over baggage size and weight)."
Cons: "Seating policy - it’s ridiculous to charge passengers to be seated together, even if they’re flying on the same booking. It only leads to on-board seating “trades” and negotiations to get people to agree to swap seats. Embarrassing!"
Pros: "Seat not too cramped. We didn't get lost - as BA flight did recently!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed! Info re delay was limited."
Except Boarding, crew and flight furation, nothing was there which i liked. It looked like the Boeing-777-300ER flight run by AI sucks big time, its broken from inside glued with tapes, hand rests were broken, flight was like it was never cleaned, experience of current AI flight sucked big time except the duration which is a direct flight is a big plus and thats why people like to travel via AI. With this experience i had, the price i paid was not worth it.!!!
Cons: "Crew sounds mean and lies often Why do they have to lie???"
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."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Terrible communication about what terminal and gate to go to!"
Cons: "Audio system is so bad it’s long journey and no entertainment"
Cons: "I had a business card on 01A but in the checkin I was told that the seat is no serviceable They gave a 17C economy seat and promised that if they will succeed to repair the seat I’ll will have my Haines seat 01A back On the gate I was told that seat 01A is ok but 01J is non serviceable bad compa"
Cons: "At the Chicago airport I have to plead for the seats together for my parents and after realizing that my mother had a broken arm ,they finally gave one. This situation became worst when the Air India Airline didn't provided wheel chair assistance to my parents at the destination airport in New Delhi. We had requested it way earlier with our Itinerary. This is one of the worst flight to book. If you are taking this feedback try to work on this and make other customers aware that beware of booking your flights with Air India when you need wheel chair assistance."
Pros: "Newer airbus plane"
Cons: "Crew clueless , delayed boarding n takeoff. No update announcements once in plane as we sat clueless for nearly 2 hrs in the plane..."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful to keep the baggage in cabin. She said it is not my duty. The movies are all 10 years old and none of South Indian movies updated. Bathrooms smell awful."
Pros: "The price of my international flight was significantly cheaper than other airlines, but Air India was wonderful. The food (for airline food) was good, the seats comfortable, and the selection of movies was great. A button was missing from my inflight entertainment system remote, but I used the touch screen to navigate, so it wasn’t a problem. Will fly Air India again."
Cons: "Inside of the plane shows a few cosmetic signs of wear."
