Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."

Pros: "Very helpful and arranged for me to move next to a friend (we had booked separately )"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My husband showed up at the airport but they didn’t let him go to flight because it’s one way ticket. We called but no any help."

Cons: "We landed in Dubabi from Athens a bit late. We were taken by a bus from the plane to the terminal which took 15 minutes. That lefte us about 30 mins before the gate closed From where we were dropped off we walked for about 15 minutes but were nowhere near our gate. We asked Emirates employees to give us a ride in the golf cars. But they all refused, until one had pity on us and gave us a ride. We reached the gate a couple of minutes before the gate closed. When we arrive in Kolkata we were told that out luggage hadn't arrived. They reached our luggage to our Kolkata home a 11:30 pm. What a nightmare. Never again on Emirates."

Pros: "Very nice"

Cons: "Hard sandwhich"

Pros: "The overall experience was good."

Pros: "The service the movies the food"

Cons: "The planes were older and for both flight my seats had problems reclining."

Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"

Pros: "The food was decent."
Cons: "While checking in, they demanded me to show them my ticket back to the US and insinuated that I will stay in Rio permanently. There was a very disorganized line to get into the plane. They also forgot to give me immigration forms for Brazil."

Pros: "Emirates advertised for $66 RT tickets from Mali to NYC which I purchased, only to find out by email that two days later that they weren't going to honor my tickets. Hence didn't end up taking the trip."

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Never had an experience where "pocket book, was weighed. After my carry on was weighed , my personal bag where I had my essentials and medications were included in the total weight of carry ons. I ended up paying for overweight. It was a big surprise for me. I came from NY and your agents approved . I had to pay,or discard."

Pros: "After my request for vegan was apparently not put through, the crew bent over backward to find food for me - even giving up one of the crew members vegetarian meals. They even made the effort to notify the next leg of my trip (even tho that effort failed.)"

Cons: "No reason to complain."

Pros: "Nice flight. Nice staff. Nice food. Nice environment. Thanks to Emirates."

Pros: "The entire experience was first rate- an excellent web-based support network from flight planning through on-line checkin. Airport experience at both MXP and JFK was excellent.. attentive, efficient ground staff- as were aircrews on both our flights with Emirates. Top class, attentive.. really enjoyed the flight. And, we pushed back spot on time both legs."
Cons: "They work the aircraft hard and it shows in small details.. broken latch in the head, bits of trash in the seatback pocket... but still head and shoulders above their competition. Oh, and it'd be nice to have bar service better coordinated with dinner.. the bar showed up quite a while after dinner was handed out. Tough if you prefer wine with your meal."

Pros: "ICE"
Cons: "Delay in leaving the plane even I were seated first raw!!!"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."

Pros: "Crew behavior, boarding, entertainment channels,food,comfort"

Cons: "The terminal was freezing and the plane was freezing. I asked a flight attendants if she could adjust the thermostat but she said she couldn't. Then they came around selling blankets. After all the inconveniences the least they could have done is give them for free Ni had to pay $10 for two flimsy blankets. Is that why they keep the a/c so cold? Disgusting."

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Food was bland though it was Bengali cuisine from Kolkata one would expect a little more taste."
