I just carried 43 inch tv weighing 19lbs and one check-in baggage weighing 21kgs and they made me pay 175$ saying that tv size is not in allowed limitations. I have also filed complaint but didn’t get any response so far . Last year my husband carried 55 inch with ethihad from same airport JFK and was not charged single penny. so I can say there is no airport restriction as well."
Cons: "It was over booked No option to upgrade even though I had more than enough air miles"
Pros: "The stewardess were friendly enough. When the cabin got chilly I received another blanket. The complimentary beverages was nice. No chips though. The individual tv screen was a plus."

Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Cons: "Crowded! I did not realize we were traveling on a holiday. The plane was full of children, including preverbal kids, who have no choice other than to cry when they are confused or unhappy. But hey, that's what noise-cancelling headphones are for! Staff is very accommodating and did their best."
Cons: "Emirates flight took me and my mom to Milan(Italy) on issued Dubai Boarding pass."
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."

Cons: "Time taken to Debord at Mumbai"
Pros: "Over all experience"
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "After 20 flights booking with emirates in last seven months and nice experience, seems its right time to switch airlines. Was not allowed to board when I reached 8 min late due to heavy traffic on accident on highway. I had 50+ mins before flight departure but they didn't allow me to board. Paid extra money and reschedule for same day flight at 4:30pm and they delayed this flight departure by an hour without no problem. Too much biased."

Cons: "Want to be a millionare English version"
Pros: "Beautiful plane, lots of room, nice lighting, soothing colors, friendly staff, better meals, nice toy pack for my daughter."
Cons: "Something was wrong with the boarding process. Not sure what, but we were pacing on the jetway to the plane for 30 minutes or so. People were so eager to get on, but for some reason, they asked people to board in specific sections, when they weren't ready, or the people needing extra time had not gotten settled yet."
Pros: "The fly was fine as usual"
Cons: "Not Emirates fault but they open my bags and made a mess with the presents for my family"
Cons: "Wasnt able to sit next to my wife on my honeymoon"
Cons: "We were not able to print the online checking ahead of time, so we had to stand in a lot of very long lines.

There was also confusion about checking in the luggage between the domestic and international flights. A boarding pass from Dubai to Ahembadvad was not given at the New York airport."
