Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew is always great."
Cons: "They can’t really do anything about this, but babies screaming all around me made the flight pretty terrible. Infants shouldn’t be flying. My god"
Cons: "Service, boarding, entertainment system was old difficult to navigate"
Cons: "Thanks, good service"
Pros: "Very professional and helpful crew. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Seats in economy a little cramped. Better to fly their A-380 double decker as more space."
Pros: "Crew, food, drinks, and seats were fantastic"
Cons: "The screens sound wasn’t good, not working well"
Pros: "A perfectly ordinary Emirates flight: good food and entertainment."
Cons: "The Kabul route often has less experienced travelers. So passengers couldn't figure out their seat belts, couldn't lock the toilets, stood up while the plane was still on the runway, pushed and shoved to try to get off the plane first, etc."
Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."
Cons: "When checking in, they were quite slow and they didn't seem like they wanted to be helpful. Some crew members were not as helpful as when we were going to Brazil, and even the way they communicated the rules was not always very nice, but not rude either."
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable"
Cons: "Overall great experience!!"
Pros: "Emirates does it with class, consistently."
Cons: "Wanted some tomato juice, but they didn't have it..."
Pros: "Overall, wonderful! Appreciate that they started boarding early and that we left right on time, if not a little earlier. Was very comfortable and excellent flight. Thank you so much! Very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Flight is not clean,I was given non veg food instead of veg saying there is shortage of vegetarian food packs, what if I’m a pure vegetarian? Should I stay hungry? Also they took a very long time to serve the food, be it breakfast, snack or dinner.Each time I ask for something the answer has been always da same ‘’ we are sorry we don’t have that’’ Due to worst possible seat so far I have asked for an extra pillow and as expected they don’t have."
Pros: "My seat mates were very nice about it when I had to climb over them; the food was fine and the staff all were great."
Cons: "Traveling in economy is torture but then it's over. The sound wasn't working at my seat and I got tired of reading lips on the movie I wanted to see. But reading and sleeping weren't bad ways to spend the time."
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The food far too spicy and was unable to eat it!! Sat by someone who should have had two seats instead of one. Thus a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Plenty of space"
Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On second flight from dubai to kabul was horrible. The did not offer an infant place for infant and we were among the passengers in a very very tide place,the other things were good"
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."
Pros: "Delayed by 3 hours!!"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The person in front put his seat back and therefore I couldn’t watch my TV. No choice for food."
Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Cons: "Service was very poor,. Not enough employees or lack of interest."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Cons: "It is just great. The timing the service the professionalism"
Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."

Pros: "Crew was extremely accommodating and friendly."

Cons: "I wasn't offered any refreshments upon boarding and had to locate an attendant just to receive service. Although I normally order the low cholesterol meal I asked the attendant to provide with its contents before serving so that I could decide whether to choose from the menu. Twenty minutes later the low cholesterol plate was served and not once was I offered the opportunity to make a selection of my own choosing."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "the flight was on time"

Pros: "I always see the best experience with emirates"
Cons: "More varieties of veg food should be introduced. Seats have a bit of less leg space No wifi"
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: "The food and care was great."
Cons: "Not enough food and snacks"
Pros: "Emirates crew have been amazing in every point of our journey!"
Cons: "The crew was not enough for so many people, they looked stressed and some of them were not very nice. The seat spaces were too small for such a long trip (13 hrs) + we had 1 hour delay in Dubai."

Cons: "I had to file a claim with Turkish because my new suitcase (not an expensive suitcase, but still) got seriously chewed up and is now unusable. At least it made it to the destination on time! And the contents were only slightly damaged. I will be happy if I get reimbursed for the suitcase."
Pros: "Flight was badly delayed and they changed the gates 3 times with no proper announcements. As a result connecting in Istanbul after 23 hours flight from LAX I missed my flight to Baku. I was made to pay EUR 651 one way at THY transfer desk for another flight which was also delayed."

Pros: "Crew was very good and the food excellent."
Cons: "Seat space is a little small."
Pros: "The flight from Brussels to Istanbul was close to perfection as the plane was not full and I had 3 seat for myself... Crew attitude, professionalism and kindness"

Cons: "The Ground crew didn’t know how to add a bag"
Pros: "Good food and great entertainment system."
Cons: "As close as an hour to takeoff, we had not received any confirmation from the gate that we would be boarding there. Upon asking the gate attendant at our supposed depature gate if if was indeed the gate depating for Kabul, she "had no idea." To begin boarding, people just randomly started lining up without any formal announcement ever occuring."

Cons: "The boarding at the gate was a bit congested."
Pros: "The friendliness and the ease of flying alone."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing- very pleasant and hospitable. There was great entertainment available which made the flight go quickly. The food was good.

Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not good food service."
Pros: "Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew."
Cons: "The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017."
Pros: "Price Point."
Cons: "Staff not very Helpful. Really bad security check for USA travelers. Airport security is really out dated, zero technology, not even a metal detector before the gates. They woke up a 15 month baby 3 times for security check. Who does that."

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight over from Atlanta to Istanbul. Everything was timely and clean."

Pros: "While in Barcelona, Spain I needed to change my departure time, there was the usual long lines ahead of me when a THY Associate questioned me about my travel plans. I explained to her that I needed to change my departure time and she took me out of line and escorted me to the correct window. Standing now at the correct window I was able to quickly make the desired changes. I was so happy I was able to avoid the long lines. THY is a Class A operation indeed. Thank you, Rudy"
