Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Shorten luggage wait time to arrive on the belt."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Crew didn’t manage noisy passengers at business cabin"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Pros: "Yes I like the services and then you will have good stuff for goods"
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."
Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."
Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."
Cons: "Being late and have 24 layover at Dubai . Am still at dubai"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Caring crew"
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."
Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"
Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."

Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "Free entertainment (nice selection of movies), free food and drinks (food is a bit spicy, but within reason), more leg room than expected."
Cons: "At first they refused to let me in on the plane, because they misread the instructions from Dubai and thought I couldn't even be at the airport. I can't go into Dubai, but I can be at the terminal. To their credit, they realized their mistake just in time and I was able to make the flight, albeit barely, so no harm done."
Pros: "Super friendly and professional crew, clean airplane and great entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding in Colombo was typical for a lot of these airports I guess but I hate it. Go outside, cram in a bus, drive to the airplane and everyone fights to get in at once. Talking about an Airbus 330-300. Took an eternity to load"

Cons: "Everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "SriLankan Airport and cabin attendant behave was very poor."

Cons: "The food"
Pros: "New aircraft from Cok - Colombo. Colombo-Doha was also good flight. Check-in and lounge at both Cok and Colombo were good"
Cons: "Colombo - Doha flight service not as not good. Delay in serving food and drinks. Bread served after I completed my dinner. No water supplied. Food menu need to update once in three months at least. Since last six months or more it is the same food menu. Same thing with the entertainment, movies need to be updated once in six months."
Pros: "Normally business class people can board any time. No with this airlines."
Cons: "We made it through the mad house of security only to find our gate wasn't open and were escorted back out Then had to go through security again when the gate was open.

Cons: "The seat does not feel soft, so hard and discomfortable"
Pros: "Every thing was fantastic"
Cons: "No thing"

Pros: "crew was nice. movies were good."
Cons: "having to use bus from plane to terminal"
Pros: "The flight landed safely is by far the most that I liked. The service was okay."
Cons: "I paid for business class and it sucked. The seats would not recline enough for comfort and the entertainment had to be held in my hand. Totally unsat for the price that I paid for that business class seat."
Pros: "Cleanliness in cabin was very poor and food quality was extremely poor."
Cons: "Cleanliness in cabin was very poor and food quality was extremely poor."
Pros: "The seats were made of stone which make the flight uncomfortable rest was quite good"
Cons: "Replace seats"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Too short a flight!"
Pros: "Online check in system kept hanging, was worse than useless, I had to mske an international call to reserve my seat. Same issue with customer satisfation survey sent by airline..the links to the system continually hung and did not respond. I would never recommend thus airline until they solve this problem."
Cons: "Online check in system kept hanging, was worse than useless, I had to mske an international call to reserve my seat. Same issue with customer satisfation survey sent by airline..the links to the system continually hung and did not respond. I would never recommend thus airline until they solve this problem."
Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "all the crew are very friendly and smile face"
Pros: "I cannot say enough about Sri Lankan. I have traveled in business class several times now from Kuwait to Colombo and Kuwait to Bangkok. The seat arrangement is awesome, the service is great and the food is tasty!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, I often have a short connection time in Colombo and have missed the connecting flight to Bangkok several times due to the plane leaving late from Kuwait. I'm not sure that this is an airline issue and is most likely due to the ground crews in Kuwait..."
Pros: "New biz class lay-flat seats were nice, though inconsistently-wide--I am 74 inches long, so was looking forward to the advertised 76-in layflat seats, but it turns out that when laid flat, the last foot or so of the seat is crammed in to a tiny cavity underneath the seat in front of you, so the only way to take full advantage of that length is to lay completely still on your back as if you were in a coffin."
Cons: "The crew woke me up multiple times despite my using their "only wake me for meals" sticker, and was generally a little brusquer than typical for biz class."
Pros: "The cabin crew was first rate. They were very observant and answered all needs!"
Cons: "Nothing bad about this flight. Will happily fly with them again!"
Pros: "All about Sri Lankan is good, they took care of me well."
Cons: "Actually there was no problem with sri lankan air line.But at Muscut there was a boarding issue to Ethiopian air line and I had to return back to SL.But bag had been sent to destination that I was supposed to go ?...... There was very poor response to my enquirer on my lost bag. Still they failed to help me to track the luggage."
Cons: "Seats are cery very tight, to my experience narrow space than anyother airline"
Cons: "No screens or headphones on board, you had to download an app on your phone and use your own earphones to watch a very limited amount of films/tv shows. Very tight seats, not reclining enough. It was like being on a low cost flight but for 5 hours. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The seat were not adjustable and the snake were poor and no entertainment on board ... poor boarding with buses and arrived with buses"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were helpful when approached."
Cons: "Crew should have been proactive in determining passengers' needs, etc. Film choices were poor-- lots of violence, few family-orientated options."
Pros: "On-ground customer service of Ethiad, Fatima. She was professional and understanding."
Cons: "Don’t overlook international flights and penalize travelers who don’t have a seat selection but checked in on time."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was great, seat was comfortable"

Pros: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I had to check in my cabin bag"
Cons: "Hassled at gate since I had my boarding pass on iPhone from Etihad and no a paper boarding pass, was held up and was one of last persons to board airplane"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."
Cons: "Disasterous! The flight departed 3 hours late because of some mechanical problem. So missed connections in Abu Dhabi, although Ethihad could have held a later connection to BKK for just about 20 minutes for us to board. The huge hassle getting lodging from the airline to take an onward flight the next day. Your staff would not accommodate us at the airport hotel so we could avoid the need to obtain a visa, which takes a minimum of 3 hours wait. We finally gave up on the visa and decided to just stay up overnight at the airport. That caused one kind Ethihad staff to finally make issues us an authorization for the hotel at the airport. We would never fly your airline again."
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "The organisation of the crew & their amability was very Good"
Cons: "I didn’ t like the food bcs of the rice Rice & rice again & especially the dinner it was only spicy rice"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Pros: "I found the crews and their services good. Food served was tasty and healthy."
Cons: "The seat layout wasnt good. In a Boeing 777-300ER generaly the seat layout is 3-3-3 in a row, where as in etihad aircraft it was 3-4-3 in the economy. Th seat was very congested for a long haul flight."
Pros: "was easy to find connecting flight info."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too high ie it was too hot and not enough drinks given out"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"
Pros: "The crew were outstanding."
Cons: "They only had two choices of food: either vegetarian or chicken. The number of dishes were small as well. The “salad” was horrible."
Pros: "Was not rendered the service inspite of being charged"
Cons: "Custormer services"
Pros: "Got an exit seat, so really enjoyed the leg room and overall flight experience."
Cons: "The flight did not take off on time, either from NYC to Abu Dhabi or Abu Dhabi to Islamabad. From Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, it was almost an hour late."
Cons: "The food was not good and our flight attendant was not attentive. He didn’t make the people in front of us put their seats back up for landing. There were no blankets when we requested one."
Pros: "Food was good."
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and pay attention to details. The layover of < 2 hours is perfect."
Cons: "Food was bad"
Cons: "Some times we did not take food from crew, I and my kids are slept. When we woke up kids feeling hungry, they are not provided food"
Pros: "I managed to find a MUCH cheaper deal through Kayak, cheaper than directly through the airline (£200 cheaper in fact!), which was a great start to the trip. I was emailed a confirmation that my booking had been accepted through the airline within minutes, and it was easy to workout how to check myself in. Then I had zero hassles on the flights, so I'm really pleased with the service. I was even lucky enough to have a whole row to myself on both of my flights from England to Australia, which on a +24hr flight can be an absolute godsend. Staff were all friendly even encouraging us to move to alternate seats given there was sufficient space. The air crafts were tidy and it was easy transitioning from each connecting flight. Absolutely no hassle at all."
Cons: "The only points were that the inflight entertainment from Manchester to Abu Dhabi was a tiny step below standard but great choice in terms of films to watch, my second flight was on an A380 so there was an obvious difference in design standard between the 2 planes making the first flight less desirable, and the food was OK at best. On one of my flights I didn't eat the heated meal, any sides and only ate some of the dessert given the flavour was quite poor. An airline could do to raise the taste bar standard."
Pros: "on time & Friendly hosts."
Cons: "I paid for extra space seats & what I get is seats smaller thane some of the regular economy seats, Entertainment earphone was bad effect voice quality, food was tastles."
Cons: "Food presentation"
Pros: "The food was delicious (there was lamb at multiple meals) and the flight attendants had everyone close the windows so as to help with the jet lag."
Cons: "I had a lot of issues with Etihad this trip. First, they changed our return date no less than 3 different times, one of them by more than 2 days. Then, they wouldn't allow us to pick up our checked luggage for our layover in Abu Dhabi because it was under 24 hours long. Unfortunately, while we made our connecting flight the next day, our luggage did not. We ended up spending 3 days without luggage, and ultimately went to the airport ourselves in order to make our tour."
Cons: "Boarding process,"
Cons: "No dedicated bus or transport for first or business passengers!"
Pros: "Good nice flight feel like you sitting in bussiness class"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats too cramped. No jetway in Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "Timing was good, crew was friendly, flight was delayed but made up most of it on the way. Food wasn't anything extraordinary but still worlds better than American carriers."
Cons: "Soo cramped on the Dreamliner. Would not recommend for a short flight let alone the 15 hour torture chamber I was stuck on."
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was very good"
Cons: "Crew was not that much friendly, 1 or 2 people were excellent. I didn't understand what makes them so serious, not polite and many. It might be reason if they are smile or polite passengers might ask more questions or more extra drinks or food. I don't think that will be case, it will be very long journey many people has remember the flight journey and need to travel back again in same flight."
Pros: "Food was good. The lavatories were clean."
Cons: "Crew behavior needs to be better. I guess in economy, generally the crew tend to be condescending."
Cons: "There was a bad odor of the bathroom, also I asked a blanket from the crew, then after 20 minutes I got it. Also the little rude dealing from the one of the crew. Little islamic programs"
Cons: "I buy two ticket to Sri Lanka . But medical retion my son 9 y old did not go but I e mail to them abut doctor tel but still my my son Cancel ticket not yet refund I don't know why"
Cons: "Wheelchair facility should be prompt. we had to wait for an hour to get it.. Also it is not that spacious.."
Pros: "The crew was great although clearly tired. They timed meals and darkness/light well given the time zone jumping and were consistently friendly despite drab conditions of such a long flight."
Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good.. Would definitely fly Etihad again."
Cons: "Only problem they didn't have proper veg food on the mum-abu Dhabi route. But that wasn't an issue on Abu Dhabi - NY route."
Pros: "Great Headrest Neck Pillow Comfy Headphones Large Toilets"
Cons: "Bathrooms became filthy."
Pros: "I liked the fact my request to sit with my wife was successful and we both got exit rows. Staff were very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Check in took took long and it would be better if you could use more technology to speed up the process (e.g.) check in via email and check your bags before you get to the airport so you can just drop them off."
Pros: "cabin crew members were much more attentive."
Cons: "food was monotonous."
Cons: "Attentiveness, we were miss for food purchasing was abit rush."
Pros: "Checking in goes well"
Cons: "after booking, air asia changed the flight schedule back teo hours. Then on travel day the flight was delayed another hour. So we arrived around midnight. Air Asia Is somewhat annoying as they’re always trying to sell you something during the flight"
Pros: "Nothing. It's cheap and really not because you pay for everything extra."
Cons: "Rude customer service. Baggage cost more than the flight."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Bigger aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "There wer plenty of empty seats and the other people sitting in my row wanted to move to open seats but weren’t allowed because the seats apparently cost more money than our seats. I think that’s a bit stingy of the airlines because no one is sitting there. Why not allow people to be comfortable?"
Pros: "The flight i booked has 2 segments and both by Air Asia. However, when arrived in KL, i was forced to exit term"
Pros: "Very good for the price I paid"
Cons: "Somehow I couldn't check in online, or at the kiosk. There was only 2 check-in desk for domestic flights in KLIA2. Long lines and waited 20 minutes. Thankfully the staff at the counter allowed me to check in, despite having only 50 minutes to spare."
Pros: "Prompt boarding, leather seats with reasonable leg room, even with seat in front reclined. Efficient, friendly and professional stewards"
Cons: "Had to ask someone in terminal about getting our connecting flight"
Cons: "Regarding the luggage. Myself need to purchase luggage but some of the people not need to buying. The Airasia staff informing that my luggage and laptop more than 11kg and need to purchasing. This is first time, I hear that laptop including also. As per my view, I had saw some of the people more heavy and biggest than me but still can go through. It is because I am foreigner and they are local person."
Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly. Even let me off some money for a drink"
Cons: "Checking in took way longer than needed"
Pros: "I will say that the AirAsia crews do save the day. This is my first time flying AirAsia on a 3 leg trip (currently on leg 2) and the crew members have been absolutely awesome and stellar."
Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"

Pros: "Missed flight because the Air Asia app could not process my boarding pass. Had to leave my arrival Terminal 1 to pass through Immigration to reach Terminal 2 because Air Asia has no counter in Yerminal 1. All this led to a time consuming exercise and missed counter check-in time. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and painful, even though I had checked in online.They charge for everything you take on board. Normally you can take a small suitcase plus rucksack, not so, there is a extra charge for the rucksack. On board I was sick and tired of listening to useless information in 3 different languages about duty free, meals, safety info that was repeated many times.. get on with the flight turn off the light and let people sleep!"

Staff spend more time selling AirAsia paraphanila and duty free than attending customers. No water nothing is offered for free. One flight booked had one luggage Free and the next we paid 72americian for 1 small suitcase. No info provided on luggage when booking. Sneaky way to make money. Use Firefly Airlines for a great budget airline"

Cons: "We arrived a full 2 hours before our flight, as did many other people. Unfortunately, as they only had 2 people working at the check-in desk, we waited in line for over an hour to get checked in. Everyone was telling the staff that we were all at risk of missing our flight (as we still needed to clear security and immigration), however nothing changed. The girls behind the desk seemed genuinely flustered and sorry about the situation, but unfortunately no one else came to support. We made our flight by the skin of our teeth, but it seems that people in line behind us weren't so lucky."

Cons: "Entertainment section doesn't seem to get update frequently. There were not any new movies. Food was not upto the mark.

The airline was boarding a certain class of passenger, but there were no announcements to inform other passengers that they weren't doing general boarding at the time. The touch screens on the back of the seats are annoying (especially on a 7-hour flight) to the passenger in front, as they can feel the constant tapping through the seat."

Cons: "Delays and missed connections. Avoid transit through Delhi and WHEN Air India delays your flight, don't expect staff to try to help. You're on your own. ANY other airline in India is preferable - avoid at all costs."
Cons: "Not good"
Pros: "The only good thing is that this is a direct flight! - The airline host/hostess staff were okay to deal with - The boarding process was okay too, similar to other airlines - The Delhi airport that we flew out of is a major improvement over the past ones"
Cons: "1. The comfort and ambiance is poor. The plastic on tray tables on my seat was broken and dirty. 2 The seat cushion is thin and feels like sitting directly on a board. I had a pain my back. Not sure of why can such a major airline out of India not try to spend back a little money to improve the comfort. 3. The space was also a pain point, when you are travelling such a long leg of flight, a little bit more space is always helpful... I think this airline has the least space among the ones I traveled with. 4. India is a country of amazing culinary experience and the food here was worse than the hostel. THIS PART WAS JUST A SHAME!"
