Excellent baggage allowance, plenty of room and very good service. The trip went very well indeed but a problem was returning via Sydney where we were charged for extra baggage weight. No problem leaving London. A very good airline apart from Sydney rules.

As we have traveled Economy Class on previous international flights, we did not expect much in terms of comfort on our flights. So we were pleasantly surprised at the seat size, the recline feature and overall comfort of our seats for sleeping on the 14 hour flight. We were fortunate to have an empty middle seat on all segments of...

We 've ever flown with Emirates before, it was ok. Even on the way from Bangkok to London on Oct. 15 , the foods was edible, even though the stewardess forgot to gave me the refreshment towel ( I did not sleep, she just skipped only me) . I gave at fair satisfaction , but not this flight( Oct. 21,2016)...

Check in - indignant behavior. Lounge greeting - snobby and rude. Lounge quality - not even close to competitors. Food and beverage on board - inferior. Service on board - clearly the crew were more important than the passengers. Seat - good, all the gadgets one can think of but cramped even for mid sized passengers. Entertainment system - excellent....

Very excited for my first flight with Emirates and the A380. Being a fairly large man I did appreciate the extra room in the Economy seating. The seat had several power connection points so no problem powering computers or phones. There was a large selection of new release movies to watch on a large screen fitted to the back of...

On time arrival and friendly hospitality, safety of our baggage from check-in till baggage claim, comfortable and spacious seats, good food and refreshments. Though the price is little higher side but it is worth travelling in Emirates.

A good service for this long flight via Dubai. I would particularly compliment ICE the entertainment system with a fantastic range of options; and the food which is plentiful and of high quality. The on board mood lighting, including led stars, is also good. My only frustration is that, along with other airlines, they are very keen to put you...

Our sixth flight on Emirates and as in the past it was excellent from start to finish. Check in was easy and fast, boarding was efficient. Staff are very friendly indeed. Service on board is fantastic, staff offer drinks almost every hour. Food was excellent. The entertainment was fantastic too, there was simply not enough time to see all the...

Everyone is talking about Emirates as the best Airlines but after having traveled with them a few times I don't understand why. It is good but not better than Cathay or Virgin or even BA. What is particularly unpleasant is the boarding and disembarking of the airplanes from Emirates. The main reason is that these aircrafts are large and with...

Flying long haul from Australia if you are lucky to do it go business class. The crew & A380 make the hours spent in the sky worth it.
