Airline reviews

Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Cons: "Everything was disappointing"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."

Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get.

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."

Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."

Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."

Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."

Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."

Pros: "Great and helpful see ice. Food is good as well. One of the few airlines where flying 24 hours (over 2 legs) is bearable."
Cons: "Takes a long time to board and de board the plane, which almost made me miss my connection at Dubai."

Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."

Pros: "Ya"
Cons: "I like it"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."
Cons: "The food is not good. I chose chicken but unfortunately no chicken only small mashed potatoes and gravy and when I asked for another one the crew said no more chicken lol.So I skipped 1 meal"

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Fast professional and courteous. The flight wasn’t full so there was plenty of room to move around."

Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."

Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"

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

Cons: "Missed connection in Dubai due to late departure from DC."

Pros: "Very comfortable interiors and great food and drinks. Crew is also not a bunch of jerks."

Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."

Pros: "I like the food and entertainment options"

Pros: "I liked most of the food service. Not breakfast."
Cons: "Cramped seating on 1st flight. High business class fares."

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, well mannered"
Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."

Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"

Cons: "Really small space. Airport crew was dismal. Boarding was more disorganized than in a poor African country and boarding is easy, I really don't understand"

Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"

Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."

Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent. The entertainment system and seat amenities are top notch - large screen, great selections, power sources, remote control (cabled). I was so impressed I planned to join their frequent flyer program (*** but see review of second leg - Dubai to Manila *** )."

Pros: "The 380 is a great plane, the quiet and comfort."

Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."

Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly. Passengers were not even allowed to carry out a basic conversation near the restrooms at the back of the plane without being shushed left and right from cabin crew in their private quarters and other crew up the stairs."

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."
Cons: "Connection was too short and airport too big. I had to literally run through the terminal and my bags didn't make the flight. Window seats on A380 are too far from window to sleep comfortably."

The plane had mechanical issues and we were moved to a new gate and plane, but that plane was late on the fueling list and they only addressed this after boarding us, so we waited forever after boarding. The internet didn't work even through the united app."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Good level of standard service. Finding the personnel are getting better in their individual service. Understand their job is difficult but a positive attitude can make everyone's situation better. Keep working toward better. Seeing the improvement is encouraging.

Cons: "Nothing worth mentioning. That is a plus."

Pros: "Cookies were very tasty."
Cons: "Seat would not recline."

Cons: "Late departure."

Pros: "Very poor service"

Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."

Pros: "Very comfortable plane. 2 seats on a side, 5 thumbs up."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. People forgetting to even stand in line for their boarding groups getting to cut ahead of those whose group is currently in the process of boarding. That should not be allowed. It's rude and disrespectful to other passengers/customers."

Cons: "Your (Kayak's) booking service sucks."

Cons: "Management, flight was delayed and no information conveyed ahead. Later connections missed and no proper arrangements made on time for next connecting flight."

Keep your boarding pass as need this at the other end to get through customs... for some reason we had to go through international departures for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system not working and some of the seats needed repair."

Cons: "Delayed by 5 hours almost"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all in 2 of the 3 seats. Airline staff could do nothing. AI staff does not help as we we're heading to Bangalore & Baggage need to be claimed in Delhi with just 2 hours transfer. We had to rush & no help from AI staff . Poor service."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Convenience of a straight flight from IAD to DEL."
Cons: "Online check-in did not matter as we still had to wait in line to drop off the bags. A baggage drop off for those checked in online would help reduce check-in lines as the counter..Food can be better, but that is true for most airlines..I think Air-India works on India time schedule as they offer alcoholic drinks at noon only (9:30 PM in India), the flight leaves IAD at 11 AM, and not during dinner service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All our three seats did not have working entertainment on a 14 hour flight; the back of the seats had cardboard used with duct tape; the flight attendants call button did not work; the reading lights didn’t work; flight attendants were rude and were working just bacuse they have a job; the quality of meals were the worst; could not turn off the screen that was blaring a non working message on a over 14 hour flight. Typical government run third world airline."

Cons: "Bags took 45 minutes to arrive in Kolkata"

Pros: "Non-stop flight for DC area to New Delhi. Flight was delayed leaving but still reached destination on time."
Cons: "Lack of service during non-peak times. Food was mediocre."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "CREW, FOOD, CUSTOMER SERVICE. My parents were traveling on 29th April. They did not provide blankets or cushion even the flight was almost 15 hours long.. when my dad asked the crew for blankets, they said we only got 25% and we do not have it. The food was horrible.. they even complained at the airport but no one cared.. over all very bad/worse experience they had.. so disappointed.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff are surly. Planes are grubby. Flights were late. Won't be using AI ever again"

Pros: "Service by the stewardesses"
Cons: "Old aircraft and limited entertainment."

Pros: "The fast travel time with no layover"
Cons: "-No working entertainment system. 15 hours flight. A person could go crazy! Not just my seat, all seats around me."

Pros: "The direct flight from Washington Metro area"
Cons: "Absolutely old, ill-maintained plane, The tray table was slanted and food tray slipped all the time. I had to be careful that food didn't spill out. Uncomfortable seat with no leg room to speak of whatsoever. The seat didn't incline for sleep and drifted slowly within in a couple of minutes o the upright position. The travelers were horrible as well. Many passengers were just not behaving well. Left toilet papers all over the floor. Toilet room was poorly maintained. No napkin towels to wipe our hands! Flimsy napkin (if you can call that!) for dinner. Generally, the worst flight experience that my wife and I have had! And, we fly a lot around the world!"

Pros: "Overall Air India has improved a lot over the years. Flight took off ok time, reached destination before scheduled time. Need to improve on in flight announcements, get better on communication, service mannerisms, approach to customers, courteousness, etc. It was a good experience and would like Air India to get better and be great!"

Pros: "Service ...the tall clean shaven gentleman was very courteous and patient...even with people who behaved over entitled and over demanding..."
Cons: "-plane is aged -one curved long nose (diamond stud pierced) lady stewardess was oversmart and deliberately skipped two rows without offering coffee. Very inconsiderate and eventually her peers had to take care of that when they actually came to collect cups! -lady announcer could not announce landing properly twice! Could not read basic English at all!"

Cons: "Horrid food"

Pros: "crew members were polite and service oriented"
Cons: "security checks at the gate, past gate, and before stepping into aircraft were over and redundant to a point it felt like being hassled."

Pros: "boarding was ok."
Cons: "the seats are are compact and not comfortable at all. I know i had the economy, that doesnt mean i should suffer the entire flight. the entertainment screen/s do not work!!! you'd be lucky if they do. they do not look very happy or satisfied serving food or drinks."

Pros: "Service was good, food was good. Arrived on time, rather a few minutes before the schedule. I appreciate that. Suggestion: People traveling on international flights with no luggage to check in but just one carry on, should be given priority to obtain boarding pass in a special line. I had no check in luggage but I have to stand in line in DC for one hour to get just the boarding pass, but on my return flight from New Delhi staff gave me boarding pass quickly in a special line. This must be looked into why not the same in DC?. Prof. Dr. Jiwan S.Sidhu"
Cons: "Most of the TV screens were not working. Out of three in the row only one worked. Moreover the number of movies etc were very few, not much choice. Please provide more variety in this entertainment section."

Pros: "Direct flight saved travel time to Delhi"
