Cons: "Hindu Non vegetarian meals could have been better"

Pros: "I liked everything! Excellent service. Great food, entertainment, and flight. Nothing went wrong. Thank you!"

Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed.

We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."

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"

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: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."

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"

Cons: "Seat selection is paid."

Pros: "Crew and the upgraded entertainment system. Especially, the nee touch screen and 3.5 mm support in the headphone jack."

Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"

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."

Cons: "Was not able to get preferred choice of meal due to insufficient availability."

Cons: "everything sucked time bery bad servive starfed on flight nonacolok was sergvedngypu ilt was really disappoinyling includigbymkthrvlounhr aothee airlione"

Pros: "Customer service"

Pros: "Layflat bed"
Cons: "Turkish airlines desk crew in DC. Really old aircraft with problems with recliner in business class from IST to LHE. Wooo likely not fly Turkish airlines in future"

Pros: "Onboard the flight service was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return. I ask this issue to be looked at, as I am currently stuck in Athens. I need a ticket to go back to D.C."

Pros: "Specially food service and also boarding"
Cons: "They checked carry on again even you passed from the counter I felt very bad about this"

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Nothing. I guess the fact that I made it to Israel?"
Cons: "Your incompetent agents messed up my reservation multiple times. They called my home and emailed asking for a payment, even though my client bought the ticket for me. Then, when I was checking in I realized my name was wrong even though my client has a document that proves she typed the right name. Finally, and AGAIN KAYAK, I arrive at the airport and Turkish Air says the ticket is booked but not ticked. So I had to jump on a 30min wait over the phone trying to solve issue after issue. Never doing business again with Kayak."

Pros: "Service was great, very polite crew. The food was so far the best comparing with other airlines I flew with. Planes were clean."
Cons: "The flight arrived with delay in Istanbul. The connecting flight was delayed as well. Hopefully I won’t experience that on the way back. One of the passengers said that flights are always delayed when arriving to Istanbul waiting for gates."
