Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Better food and cooked throughly and better seat and more blankets."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seat upgraded to business class. Superb service and comfort!"
Pros: "it was good, i like all the services from staff."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good but that doesn’t make up for lack of equal treatment of all passengers"
Cons: "They are racist!!!!! Segregation and all!!!!! For my more than 12 hours layover I had to pay for my own hotel!!! Yet other travelers were given free hotel vouchers. As a matter of fact I was kept waiting for nearly half an hour in the middle of the night even though I had been waiting for service ahead of them."
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Pros: "Emirates is my new favorite airline. Food was excellent, flight attendants were all friendly and professional, the seats were spacious, and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

The flight was canceled so it’s stupid to send me this now !!!!!

Pros: "it was ok."
Cons: "Crew allowed passengers in with no masks. Why do they write a boarding time on a pass? They started 15 min later. Then, "be fast, be fast, we are behind". Plane departed 20 min late."
Cons: "The plane waited 40 minutes for delayed connecting flights to arrive. It's great for some passengers because they don't miss the transatlantic flight, but it causes others to miss their connections on the other end. It added to very stressful deplaning."
Pros: "We flew Business Class. The crew was professional and attentive. The food was definitely a nice cut above."
Cons: "Nothing that I can offer. If I needed to make another trip anywhere ANZ flies, they would be my first choice every time."
Pros: "I like that the plan wasn’t that full and the movie was great also when I flew back the food and monies was different"
Cons: "More snacks maybe lackerli"
Pros: "The seats were good for a short flight, which this was. No complaints."
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."
Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"
Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"
Pros: "Seat was broken and did not recline. It was uncomfortable..."
Cons: "USB and power outlet were unable to charge my kindle.... what is the purpose of these if they dont work? Fix them please!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours and it did not have WiFi (even though it was a Dreamliner!)!!!!"
Cons: "there is always a delay... the movies on the moniter needs to be updated..."
Pros: "It was on time and flights itself was pleasant."
Cons: "My luggage is lost and I hope it will come on the next flight to Yerevan."
Pros: "Cheap fair to Eastern Europe. Many new movies."
Cons: "Crammed seats. Flight delayed. Almost missed the connection flight. My luggage didn’t make it to the final destination. Luggage delivered to my hotel in 2 days. Noticed the bags have been opened (I put tapes around the bag, and the tapes were cut/altered). Some stuff were stolen. G.H.E.T.T.O."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair upon arrival in Warsaw and in Toronto but it was not provided."
Cons: "At least one free drink or a small sandwitch on 2 hours international flight would be fair."
Pros: "The crew remained polite and we were given a bottle of water each during at 2.5 hour delay."
Cons: "We had a two and half hour delay on an evening flight on a Sunday from WAW to Paris. This was during the UNFCCC COP24 when there was extra heavy international traffic through Warsaw. It was not clear why the plane was delayed for so long. It meant in the end that we got to Paris after midnight when the RER train had stopped running and the airport was functionally closed. This meant instead of a train ticket, rather a 55 euro taxi to get home. This was an expensive delay."
Cons: "- Boarding: was rainy and is quite complicated when you need to take the bus; All the other difficulties were more related to the weather. However, for a ~260 EUR flight, the lack of comfort and basic food were unexpected."
Pros: "OK small flight to warsaw from Lviv"
Cons: "Took too long the flight to Lviv and my luggage never made it on the flight."

Very rushed and stressful Transfer at Pearson. Baggage delayed, I have been advised is coming, but not sure when.

Boarding was a breeze and the attendants at the airport were very helpful

Not to long of a trip, crew where very good.

Took forever to board. Didn't leave until an hour past scheduled time.

Pros: "Amazing crew and Ground staff. Check in and bag check in was really smooth and fast."
Cons: "Maybe some more options of snacks. In flight entertainment was not working so can’t say much about it."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was on time. This was a newer plane"
Cons: "it was great"
Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to provide a good service."
Cons: "Wider seats and more leg room. The return trip from Ottawa to Vancouver was over $1200. I think that’s quite pricey given that any food or alcoholic beverage had to be purchased at an extra cost."
Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Pros: "It did eventually get there on time."
Cons: "Last flight changed gates like 6 times, delayed 2 hours, then was cancelled and they moved us to another plane...and two more gates, but to the original time. So I had to keep updating my ride who was (2) hours away. It was only a 1 hour flight. This was my (3rd) flight of the trip and had been travelling for 15+ hours. This was an United Flight."
Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Cons: "Food was horrible! Vegetables so overcooked they were almost liquid. Overly salted. Best thing was Chobani yogurt... pre done by Chobani."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Cons: "No snack, one cup of beverage and no movies without paying."
