Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"

Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worse food Old flight Late boarding"

Pros: "Expenting better from the Airline and Airport. Airpor has only 2 lounges at other terminals for passengers flying either Delta or United, Not for Emirstes and no Priority Pass. The service was not as expected, took me more than 25 min to get a flight attendant to reach my seat to request a glass of water... when I went to the back of the plane to get water I was told to get back to my sest since seatbelt sign was on (it happend to be turned on for 12 hrs over a 14hr flight... Other than that service is better, than modt of US airlines. I flight frequently and I have boarded Emirates before, economy and business, I feel that they do not deserve best airline qualification for economy, fir example KLM is much better."
Cons: "Attention of Flight Attendants Wait before boarding No major airline alliance or frequent flyer program For pay WIFI a complicated selection in the menu and no runs for extra water or drinks Old headphones not compatible eith other comercialized and used by the rest of the world."

Pros: "The sitting is nice with good leg room"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I don’t like."

Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."

Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"

Pros: "I liked the entertainment and the cabin crew is very welcomjng and nice smaile on their faces."
Cons: "The leg room for tall guys isrediculous and if i had to get more leroom even in international flights they r charging. Ive not bren charged in domestic flights till now for leg room. And the food shoydl be changed and please give sime yhing more filling."

Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"

Pros: "The excellent service and the very attentive cabin crews."

Cons: "the new laptop/camera rule. not enough cushion with bubble wrap, no organization. the crowd and lines werent managed. there isnt insurance available in case anything happens to them since it's out of our hands."

Cons: "Flight got delayed and had to stay in Dubai over night. I was provided with the hotel voucher when I enquiried about the delay but the staff did not give me enough information how to get to the hotel. He seems so caught up with other stuff. I was standing there clueless. The sceen on entertainment unit was too dark and the buttons were not working properly on the screen."

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."

Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Cons: "When at the Dubai plane got delayed for 3 hours they did not make the announcement and nobody knew what is going on. That main man at the counter did it behaves the way they should.

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!!

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "was very quick"

Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"

Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had.

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"

Pros: "That we didn't crash"

Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."

Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."

Pros: "The crew was sufficient and polite. Seats are average. Food was extremely limited. Underwhelmed but, frankly, exhausted with the process of trying to get out."
Cons: "Communication of flight departure time was not provided causing us to miss our flight and requiring over 2 hours on a cell call to Bangladesh to book a 24 hr delay which was further confused by computer glitches. Poor customer service at the flight checkin desk in Kathmandu who are, apparently, limited in what they can assist with."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. In seat entertainment had great selection, but dated screens."

Pros: "Luxury and spacious toilets"
Cons: "Amount of food was not enough from Hong Kong to Abu Dhabi."

Pros: "Seats were super comfortable and on time arrival."
Cons: "Food servings timings, were not matched with the New York time zone."

Pros: "Seats are not too tight. Professional crew. Ventilation and overall aircraft comfort was good."
Cons: "Food can be better."

Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"
Cons: "My co passengers."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"

Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "If your someone with mild restless leg syndrome, go business class or the leg room package or you will be miserable."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly"

Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"

Cons: "I checked in at Hyderabad and the check in staff were more than unprofessional. First they said my carry on bag and laptop bag should be no more than 7 kgs which was wrong. Later when I asked them to show the baggage restrictions, they went back saying it's okay. I had only 1 check in bag and it weight 1 kg more. I thought they would allow it since I had only 1 check in bag but they made me take out that extra kg and check in my carry on as second bag. Finally I asked for an aisle seat and they said the flight was full. But when I boarded the IAD flight I was rather surprised to see quite a few aisle and window seats. So rather than being a great experience, I would say it was a mediocre one because of the Hyderabad staff."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."

Pros: "Didn’t have much choice for vegetarians.. food was not good atol"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew great. Enough food at proper times. Plane clean"
Cons: "Wish they had earlier check in for a 777 flight."

Pros: "My seat had a problem initially it was not reclining once they fixed that later the seat got deflated. It became unbearable to seat. The crew tried fixing it for about 30 mins and they then they changed my seat. Ideally I would want refund for the flight as my experience was extremely bad"

Pros: "Food again"
Cons: "old entertainment system"

Pros: "All crew members were 5 star and so friendly! They checked many times on everyone, coming along with water often."
Cons: "The attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. very old on flight - dress warm!"
