Cons: "Overall experience turns exceptional great when crew is friendly, understandable & helpful. My overall experience on this flight from CAI-DXB on Emirates was great because of the wonderful crew, on top was their Supervisor/ Adel A.Hamid El-Hareth. On the contrary my decision after an experience with Emirates on board from DXB-LAX, was never to repeat it due to Crew Supervisor, she was British, she was there on board I guess to teach everybody disciplines with a tone !! Someone exceptional to meet once in life but it may bring you to a decision along with other factors not to fly again with Emirates to LAX. Thanks for your professional follow up Regards, Dr. Karim Ali"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"

Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."

Pros: "Lamb and chicken were good but kids didn't like the kids meals.."
Cons: "2 of the female crew members had attitude problems when asked simple questions by passengers. One was an Urdu speaking flight attendant and the other was a blonde woman. Regret I didn't get their names. Please work with them on being nicer with passengers."

Pros: "all is good"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "gate was poorly labeled. Screens and boarding card said "E11" but there were 3 gates "E11A" "E11B" and "E11C" and most passengers wasted time trying to find the right one (including "E11C" which was the first gate # passengers saw, and required going up stairs to a different floor to determine it was the wrong gate). Terrible signage, awful experience. Someone should be fired."

Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"

Cons: "Cairo airport: Personnel have no manners. Rude, disdainful security staff who bark at passenges as if everyone is a criminal. Must be related to the Egyptian mindset. Dubai airport: Endless taxiing from aircraft to terminals, endless shuttle rides between terminals. You feel like a rat scuttling through underground tunnels and dismal byways through a wateland of darkness to be spat out at ugly, uninviting entrances somewhere in the bowels of Dubai International. No signs, no knowledgeable personnel to explain anything to you. No attempt at making travelers feel comfortable, no attempt at making the surroundings look pleasant. Must be the culture. The flight itself has wonderful staff, but the airport makes me not want to fly Emirates again!"

Pros: "the food is excellent"

Pros: "The seats with enough legs room"
Cons: "It was so difficult to find the restrooms. There were few of them in a big airport that made a long line and difficult for kids"

Cons: "The flight got cancelled, and it was impossible to reach your customer service. It was the first time to use and last time."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Excellent trip"

Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Cons: "Over charged for bags paid $326.00 for one extra bag I call Airline in Dubai they said you have been over charged"

Cons: "The screen not working I feel very bored"

Cons: "crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and crew were great"

Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."

Cons: "I had a 14 hours layover in Dubai. I had called Emirates before booking this flight and they said they would issue a hotel and meals vouchers. Due to a mistake by an Emirates agents who was processing the visa application in Dubai, it was denied and an immigration head officer came and appologized to me and spoke to her. Emirates did not compensate me at all. They could have granted Emirates lounge access, meals, or simply book me a room at the airport hotel. I ended up sleeping for 14 hours on a chair due to their employee's fault"

Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flighet delay"

Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Pros: "Excellence !!!"

Cons: "All seats are occupied airplane is completely full making it difficult for crew to serve passengers and time consuming to do regular activities."

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"

Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"

Pros: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance"
Cons: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance. An extremely poor show my emirates who call themselves a premier airline and this was a POOR SHOW!"

Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "we were delayed by 3 hours and missed our next flight to seattle, emirates did nothing to help us catch our next flight, even though it sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we were denied entry to the gate."

Pros: "Great entertainment. Crew was calm and professional."
Cons: "Food was ok, but I've had a lot better on Emirates. Low carb options would make it amazing."

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."

Pros: "Everything was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flights"

Pros: "Available movies are great! Food is really good, but if your seat is in the end of the plaine, your choises of food will be smaller (meat plates ends before you get the opportunity to ask for it)."
Cons: "Emirates is located in a crowded terminal in Cairo and from the airport entrance to the gate can take you more than one hour. Also, some people in this airport don't respect the queue, so you have to pay attention on your place in the line and sometimes, 'fight' for it. My flight had lots of kids, and even asking the parents to control their kids, it didn't happened. During part of my flight I had a child kicking the back of my seat!"

Pros: "Nothing good to mention"
Cons: "Check in counter staff are more aggressive than their passenger. Dealing with the passenger/customer with respect and in a polite manner must be applied."

Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

"This was the worst meal I ever had on a flight. It was undercooked pasta with unflavored tomato paste. Horrible."

Pros: "The aircraft is a marvel."
Cons: "The food is a bummer. No coffee, no tea, no beverages. What's the point? How eating a stew is different from eating a small sandwich? What's the reason? Nobody care to explain..."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The crew was attentive"

Pros: "i like the food and movie choices."
Cons: "Crew was little bit rude. They didn’t help me to find the spot for my carry on luggage."

Cons: "They were making luggage issues with all passengers"

Pros: "Great crew, confortable seats, free complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Even though the same plane was used, the Cuban authorities asked passengers bound to Caracas to deboard the plane, pass to transit, to have us waiting an hour to re board. Boarding was a complete chaos. We were not handed headsets, so could not listen to inflight entertainment. Food was not good"

Pros: "All the pieces to have provided an excellent experience were there, but they didn’t come together. It was nice to get some food, and the movie choices were pretty good."
Cons: "Hot, like super hot, in the aircraft. It was horrible."

Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."

Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."

Pros: "Flight itself is very nice. Good service and media selection."
Cons: "Trip from ZAG to IAH Business Class. At ZAG they told me it was fine to take my skateboard onboard. At the Istanbul layover they forced me to pay $160 or else my items wouldn't make it on board. With a business class I still had to pay extra for a carry-on they said it was okay but then they changed their tune. I get it's in a different location but the same company is telling me two different things that ended up costing $160. On top of that, when I finally arrived at IAH they didn't have my skateboards... so I paid $160 for them to lose my boards."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."

Pros: "I love the food and service, thank you Turkish airlines, you are the best in the world"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."

Pros: "Ataturk airport, meals"
Cons: "Turkish airlines staff are rude"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours before boarding; and this problem of no USB to charge phones from Abuja to Istanbul is a frequent problem, old fashioned seat and aircraft. Some of the air hostess were mean and hoarding foods.Nigerians patronize Turkish Airlines a lot. Turkish Airlines need to improve better and treat customers right."

Pros: "The staff!"
Cons: "The turbulence lol"

Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"

Pros: "Timing of the flight."
Cons: "I have used this same flight 6 times and only the first time was good. The others were getting bad every time. The service is very poor. The food is not good. You can not say you are out of pasta when you said you will serv it. Flight attendants really are not friendly."

Pros: "Nice crew. Boarding and deplane was fairly easy and quick."
Cons: "Seats in coach are quite close and became worse when people reclined."

Pros: "It was nice"
Cons: "Food was not that nice"

Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."

Cons: "Delayed yet again"

Pros: "Boarding procedure was not organized. Boarding of business class and special needs passengers was not prioritized and were boarded along with economy passengers. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "TV screen very far from the seat and could only interact with it via the remote control."

Cons: "Toward the end of the flight it was very hot. I didn't like that there were no AC controls at your seat"

Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "More leg room is needed"

Cons: "Vegetarian meals were not good."

Cons: "Terms and conditions of trkish air line of changing date of booking is essentially high and doubled if you are forced to do it twice...the trip cost me more than first class"

Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "It was a pleasant experience,"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The staff were helpful, the food was it's usual high quality and it was possible to grab a a snack or drink during flight if you wanted one without bothering the flight crew"
Cons: "I found the announcements at the start of the flight a little annoying as they were timed to continually interrupt the films I'd chosen, but I prefer that to not being able to start a film while taxiing."

Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"

Pros: "Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall"

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."

Pros: "Food was very good. Was surprised we got a meal for a short flight"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"

Cons: "Crew need to smile a bit."

Pros: "Sitting was small"

Cons: "They always ran out of food options."

Cons: "Flight didn't start boarding until posted departure time and no announcement was made. the food was horrible and smelled horrible. Airplane exhaust was permeated the cabin making passengers nauseous,"

Pros: "Contrary to many mainstream airlines which try to cut costs everwhere to the detriment of economy class passengers, Turkish airlines provides excellent service in economy, and I could get a super cheap fare for my whole family."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled then stood for hours in a line just for a hotel room. Then waited in hotel room till afternoon the next day with no news. Horrible way to handle customers"

Cons: "Baggage handlers poor. One of my bags was dented and the other had a buckle broken."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Excellent service"

Pros: "I liked the easy boarding and the food"
Cons: "The planes interiors could use some updating"

Cons: "No entertainment on board. Food served was rather bland. Seats weren't very comfortable."

"Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email. Kind regards, Mohammed Sent from my iPhone"

Pros: "Loaded passengers quickly with so many issues at the airport"
Cons: "No thought to seating and how they change and scatter families in different places not too far from each other. Plus seats were confirmed."

Cons: "Good food"

Cons: "Was a good experience"

Pros: "Airplane very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!!"

Pros: "New & clean aircraft"

Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."

Cons: "The food needs to improve and the movies are old. The actual flight was nice."

Cons: "Not lied to me about my extra being payed from Bahrain to Kenya because it was only payed to Dubai which is now causing me a lot of stress my flight from Dubai to Nairobi was cancelled while i was there without my knowledge"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "They are not as bad as their reputation states"
Cons: "Gulf air staff at cairo airport refused to give me the boarding pass of the 2nd flight while i was returning from cairo, while in dubai they gave me both boarding passes Although i told them the layover is under an hour Luckily bahrain airport accepts mobile check in and i barely caught the flight"

"They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again."

"Late departure, the plane was filthy since people were dropping lots of trash in the aisle. The bathrooms were almost unusable because people peed on the walls and floor, and left soaked bathroom paper on the floor and toilet. Most people ignored the crew and didn't wear masks, including people who were coughing."

This really escalades recommendations for EgyptAir"

Pros: "Flight itself was great ... attentive service, nice airplane, food and beverages even when it's a short flight"
Cons: "Check-in in the Cairo airport: different lines led to large differences in processing time ... our line also processed business class which led to us taking over one hour for check-in (basically being the last one) and having to run through security even when we arrived rather early. No initiative by the check-in attendants to balance between the lines. When they opened two more counters to process check-in they only processed the 'fast' line. Pro tip: avoid the (economy) check-in line next to the business counter. This probably led to the second problem ... they gave us separate seats when traveling with a young child."

Cons: "Airline cancelled my Thanksgiving NYC to Cairo flight 2 weeks prior, leaving to me to scramble to find another flight and paying an additional $300+ on another airline. On top of it, phone support staff I talked with were not the least helpful, empathetic or friendly. I was jerked around about receiving a full refund even though it was the airline that cancelled, and finally had to dispute the purchase with my credit card company. They've lost my business forever."

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plan was really old. It had ashtrays."

Pros: "Lots of movies or tv shows to choose from in entertainment system. There were only 20 people on my flight, so lots of room to spread out."

Pros: "Service, on time"
Cons: "Not much to complain about"

Pros: "Purser from Tel Aviv to Jordan and Purser and cabin attendant Jordan to Dubai."

Cons: "It was over 2 hours late"
