Cons: "Crew woke us up to ask us if we wanted food. I've only ever been woken up before for safety reasons (seat belts, etc) We were not impressed with the arrival in Dubai. We came in a large plane and had to deplane very far from the terminal onto buses, down a long set of stairs. They did not send enough buses so we waited on the hot outside stairs for about 15 minutes. It took us a full 45+ minutes from landing to get to the actual terminal. We were grateful we had a long layover or we would not have made our connecting flight!"
Pros: "Boarding logistics and flight timing were good. Being on time was a big plus. Personnel demeanour/service was good."

Cons: "The ground staff at Bangalore in India had no idea on crowd control. Before they started boarding they made no announcements. The agents would talk amongst themselves but there were no announcements. With the result that everyone rushed at once for boarding. The lady agent who was scanning the passes kept yelling at people to form a line but by then it was too late On the flight, they ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat!!"
Pros: "I flew Emirates for the first time. You guys rock. The stewardesses very quick to help with their smiley faces. The Asian vegetarian meal was okay."

Pros: "Everything...food and staffs were great"
Cons: "I had a terrible experience on my flight from BLR to LAX on 12/30/2016. My flight from BLR was delayed for 3 hours because of fog. I had a connection flight from Dubai at 3:15 pm the same day and I was going to miss it. I had a flight from LAX to SFO(I had booked this separately via a domestic airlines) on the 31st at 10 am. The ground staff at BLR told me that they would put me on the 8:30 am flight to LAX on 31st. That would mean more than a 12 hour wait at Dubai airport and they informed me that accommodation would be provided. Based on this I rebooked my LAX to SFO(I paid extra for this) for the next day. On reaching Dubai I was told that I will be put on the 3:30 pm flight on 31st instead of the 8:30 am flight. That would mean a 20 hour wait at the airport. I was also given a SINGLE food voucher and told that no hotel accommodation would be provided. I was also going to miss the LAX to SFO flight which I had rebooked. I requested the ground staff to try and put me on a direct flight to SFO instead. After begging them for a while they put me on a stand by status on the 7:30 am flight the next day. I spent 12 hours in the airport. That flight was further delayed by 3 hours. When my husband contacted the customer service on 31st morning, they told him that accommodation would be provided and sent me an email confirming that. This was in the morning after I had spent 12 hours in the airport. If accommodation was available why was I told by the ground staff that all rooms were full? I also saw them hand out hotel vouchers to other passengers with shorter wait times than mine. Was it based on their nationality(I sincerely hope not but the reviews I am reading of Emirates online suggest otherwise). Fog and other weather conditions are completely understandable but the discriminatory behaviour of the ground staff in Dubai was really disappointing. This new year weekend was my honeymoon and it was completely ruined because of this trip."
Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"
Pros: "-Airbus A380 from dubai to SFO and backforth was very pleasant and almost zero noise in cabin. However flight design is little awkward that it squeezed me, wife and our baby in bassinet seat. - We had opted for Asian veg food and was very tasty and was served hot all the time. - Many restrooms - Travel accessories - Great entertainment options."
Cons: "- Cabin crew were bit rude and didn't care much even though we had baby when flying from SFO to Dubai. - Restrooms are oddly placed inside flight. - Can improve on food menu and varieties and also wish there were more snacks to munch. - Boarding process need to much more organized."
Pros: "Spacious, great service, amazing entertainment selection. Food on the return leg from Dubai to Seattle was bland and not tasty. Uninspired. But the leg to Dubai from Seattle is great food. Very tasty"
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines,"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was really bad. I have travelled in Qatar Airways B class and there I was impressed by the food quality. Here it was really pathetic. Crew was helpful but were not willing to go an extra step. Like , offering a cup of coffee after someone wakes up."
Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Pros: "Space and cleanness"
Pros: "The flight itself was fantastic. Perfection as usual. Emirates is surely neck to neck with Singapore Airlines for the number one spot of the best airline in the world."
Cons: "1. I joined at Bangalore. The staff worked strictly according to the rules. While this is good it lends itself to passenger discomfort at times. Example: I had only 1 suitcase of 45 pounds, and I had a hand baggage of 13.7 kgs, because I was carrying all my precious crystalware back to Houston. The attendant kept insisting I lighten the hand baggage to les than 7 kgs. Finally he even suggested I send the hand baggage as checked luggage. He must be insane! I had a few thousand dollars worth of crystal in that hand bag and there was no way I'd send as checked luggage. Finally, I lightened the load to 10 kgs and called his manager and I was allowed to carry the hand luggage. 2. On landing at Dubai, everything unraveled. The airport was full of thousands of stranded passengers because 18 hours ago a plane had crash-landed at the tarmac causing flight cancellations. Obviously Emirates was poorly prepared for handling this this emergency. Many of the passengers, including myself, ended up standing at the customer service counters (there were about 10 customer service stations all over the airport), and every customer station had about 500 irate passengers and 3 or 4 agents handling them. Not only that, the customers were standing in stuffy atmosphere, no fod no water for hours, many mothers were desperate with children. Emirates had no idea how to handle this situation. I caught hold of a senior police official and told him that the least he could do was to give the customers some bottled water to keep them hydrated. Within minutes, in typical Arab hospitality - many cases of bottled water showed up, followed by cupcakes and then Mango Frootis. This helped to calm the passengers down. Then there was the chaos of everyone crowding the service desk. No lines, no semblance of order. After discussion with the policeman, we installed barriers for that passengers would stand single file. One thing that was very wrong and out of our control was there were only 3, sometimes 4, persons behind the desk, attending to more than 500 stranded passengers at each station. I reckon we would need at least 20 or 30 staff at each station. I noted that at each customer depot there were at least 10 computer stations at our service station, but only 3 were manned. Also, there was no one to advise the passengers on their status, what arrangements were being made, what the status update of the situation was...... nothing. We just stood in a bunch at the customer service desk and hoped for some attention. Appalling. Emirates needs to beef up their crisis management strategies. As a Crisis Manager myself, I was appalled to see how poor their capability to respond to a crisis situation was. I have many ideas based on my experience in crisis management. If you want suggestions call me. Besides this crisis, Emirates has always been a very good airline to me. Their everyday service is impeccable and a treat to experience.

V were stranded at airport without sleep.V r planning to claim compensation for this horrible situation because of Emirates"
Cons: "You need to do a better job of placing families together. I moved from my seat twice in this first flight because of poor seating choices you provided for families and young women. The first move was because a father wanted to sit next to his young son. The second was because a young women was uncomfortable sitting in a row of men. I started with an aisle seat but had to move to a middle seat through all of this. I gave up my comfort to ensure that other passengers were properly taken care of. You should only hope that others will be willing to do the same."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Pros: "Basically nothing"

Pros: "Promptness and efficient management of time. Nice staff!"

Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."
Pros: "As above"

Pros: "Very customer like"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Discomfort No food/water No entertainment Very very bad seats Only 2 toilets"
Cons: "- The flight onward to Ahmedabad went fine but the return flight got delayed by 2 hrs, one hour to get fly from Ahmedabad and another one to land as the Mumbai airport had heavy traffic so we kept flying for an additional hour waiting for an opportunity to land. Its effect was increased by the fact that it was late at night. In fact, we were using flight rather than train to save time and it ended up costing us 5 hours between waiting and flight. - There was no food available on the flight apart from food that one should buy at an extra cost."

But refuse to display No display of gate until boarding was midway Row wise boarding not followed Head purser on board was loud , brash , rude and curt to all Non apologetic to a delay of nearly 2.5 hours Cramped seats"
Pros: "The flight was for only one hour and it went by pretty quickly. The flight was clean and the crew was friendly as well. The prices were a little high but they were offering international baggage allowance so it was worth it."

Cons: "poor communication of delay as well as estimation of delay."
Cons: "Did not receive timely information about the flight delay (if I'd I could cancelled, gotten a full refund and flown on another flight right there, but the information came too late, even though they had it in advance.)

Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Boarding in a bus is a bummer"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding could have been swifter."
Pros: "Nothing much - just value for money."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The check-in staff at the counter give the first impression, and my impression was that they were stressed. Perhaps they need more support. The cabin crew was very pleasant and professional.

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 7 hrs"

Pros: "Friendly but brisk crew on time arrival in Malé"
Cons: "Hectic boarding, tiny plane (Q400) on an international flight, when going from COK To MLE, fly indigo bc better boarding and more comfort bc A320. SpiceJet used a bus gate, had terrible legroom,"
Pros: "Only Allows just 15kg check-in bag will not work if traveling internationally as then the charge huge fees if over 15kg. My bag was 24kg and cost me an additional 3000 rupees. I have not given the option to check in online ."
Cons: "Reclining seats not working"
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "There was an hour delay which the ground staff nor the airlines bothered to inform the passengers"
Cons: "We had to pay 14,000 rupees more"
Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."
Cons: "They only had 2 options for meals on board. And both were bad. With 20 options in their menu, they had kept only 2 options and both were bad. Those too were only snack items."

Pros: "Comfort, cleanliness ,check in."
Cons: "I was refused food as the stewardess did not have change for ₹500:- & cost of food was ₹200/- odd. Being diabetic I had to go without my insulin.. Luggage arrived quite late in Kolkata."
Cons: "The gave us hard time :( first they were not issuing us the boarding passes. They when I call kayak i have been told rebook our tickets. It was the worst day for us :("
Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"
Cons: "No food, low leg space. Very long boarding (back seats first, inaudible announcement of which rows should go now, and still very long)."
Pros: "Faster than driving from Chandigarh to Delhi Great value for price for flight Great service"
Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Pros: "Very courteous service and yummy onboard food"
Pros: "Healthy snacks"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row, so was fine with leg room. Checking a bag, even though I had not pre-paid to do this, was easy and didn't cost anything."
Cons: "Give out free water - the air inside the plane was stagnate and dry."
Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Pros: "Efficient and orderly."
Cons: "Boarding should start only when the plane is ready to board. A very l9ng queue could be avoided."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, specially Ms Nandini. Food was okay."
Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."
Pros: "Seamless check in and check out."
Cons: "Everything was good. Can't complain. My legs are just too long to fit any airline seats comfortably."
Cons: "No in flight service. Crammed and small seats. Had to pay recess baggage fees since did not know that the ticket I bought via kayak was without any checked in baggage."
Pros: "boarding was very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes, then we ended up circling for a long time so landed nearly an hour late."
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"
Pros: "Not much. A seat? Free cup of water? The 737? Safety. The drill, and cabin check, was mostly up to international standards. The crew were trying hard."
Cons: "No seat belts for infants. No actual control over size or number of hand baggage. The 15kg weight allowance for stowed baggage (that no one told me about) but I did like the way one could pay for excess at the check in desk. strange that refreshments were served 15 mins before arrival exactly when the pilot started his landing announcement on both legs I travelled. On the longer leg they were also offered earlier it is true, so it seemed especially odd to serve again then."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service."
Pros: "The seating is fine and yhe crew is polite"
Cons: "The aircondition is not working and very hot."

Pros: "It was very nice"
Pros: "Aircraft food cleanliness"
Cons: "Timings bit , delayed start by an hour!"
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."
Pros: "Food is good. Crew is very polite."
Cons: "Everything - Boarding, Quality of Aircraft, Cleanliness, Entertainment. Everything looks so outdated (and broken). Pieces of the seat were dangling."

Pros: "Price, crew, and service"
Cons: "Boarding process was not smooth. People were allowed to board in a random order resulting in crowded aisles and not optimal overhead luggage compartment loading"
Pros: "All facilities are good"
Cons: "Video system is not working properly. Remain all is good."
Cons: "Cost of my ticket from Bangalore to Delhi was $58 USD. I have been in India for 6 weeks, so I had two suitcases. It cost me $131 for a second suitcase. That is absolutely ridiculous and I will never use Air India again."
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: "The aircraft is small and understandable because short distance. When we boarded the aircraft got problem with brakes & AC. We have to be offloaded. We finally depart after 2 hours."

Cons: "The USB Charging point was not functioning. The display of a seat in my row was not functioning"
Pros: "nothing much"
Cons: "the cheap crowd."
Pros: "Flight staff were very accomodative"
Cons: "Overall management of Air india, handling of 300+ passengers when the flight is scheduled for next day, should have been better. Cancellations happen, but they made us wait till 2:00AM to put into a hotel.. when they knew about reschedule around 4:00PM. the Contracting agency who handles Air india in JFK are the worst. They dont care about Air india reputation."
Pros: "good service, food in general"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about half hour. Business class luggage came much after economy class luggage. Why am I paying priority price? Samething with check in -- they allow people to move in and out of priority line without preference to business class passengers"
Pros: "Quick check in. Not so long que and immediately transferred"
Cons: "Food was not at all good . Idly was rock hard and Sambar was awful. Departure was delayed by 15 minuets."

Pros: "Was very good"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful in general. I did not have any issues, but the passenger in the seat next to me had quite a lot of issues, since it was the first time she was travelling. The crew was very helpful, and in my opinion, they did everything possible to make her comfortable."
Cons: "The luggage check in process was a mess. We were directed to a particular line to complete the check in. As we were standing in the line, 4 out 6 agents closed down and went elsewhere, leaving everyone in the line to check in with remaining 2 agents there. An old couple were there as well, who moved from one counter to the next, to the next, and they were then told to come back in the line! Two of us were traveling together, and presented our tickets together, but we were given seats far away. I requested them for adjacent seats and they said that none were available. I insisted and stayed at the counter, and immediately, the agent found 2 adjacent seats, going on to show that she did not even look for it the first time. The seats have poor cushion. I needed to use multiple pillows to provide cushion for sitting and for back support. The food was average. For some reason, they make the curry extremely spicy, as a result of which many of the passengers find it difficult to eat. The inconsistency of the entertainment unit in AI flights is well known. In many flights, in many rows, it does not work, immaterial of the number of times they reset it. Fortunately for us, this time, the unit was working fine in both our seats. That was not the case during our to-journey."
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by 2 hours and 30 minutes. They informed us vet late by the time we were in the cab."
Pros: "Since my lasr travel inn Air India 6-7 years ago, it has improved a lot. I travelled from chicago to Delhi (non-stop) in May 2017 with my family. Flight is on time. Crew is younger and energetic unlike my last trip. Food is fine. Toilets are clean. Couple of times, They were asking to provide feedback by filling some form which tells me they are genuinely trying to listen and improve further."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "ON TIME!!! Both legs reached before or on time at destination.,food and drink service was good compared to other airlines. Also air fare was the cheapest of all airlines!!!"
Cons: "Seat was broken and air hostess are rude and look more like mammas in sky."

Pros: "Good food which is very unlikely otherwise. Indeed a pleasant flight !"
