I booked our flight from Bishkek to Hong Kong with Emirates. I wasn't to know that the Bishkek/Dubai leg was going to be with flydubai. It was a long awful flight - only 4h but it seemed an eternity!! Cramped seating. Flight attendants continually bumping into aisle seats - no apologies. The worst meal (breakfast) I've experienced. Zilch entertainment. Not...

All in all, the goal is to travel from one point to another therefor I would do it again if needed. But don’t have high expectations. The crew is very nice and friendly though. All in...

After being spoilt on the first half of our journey with emirates, this was like cattle class. We were on a flight just short of 6 hours and felt every one of them. The entertainment all had to be paid additionally for, not even any free games to pass time. The food on the way out was so bad I...

The flight was short, the wait was atrocious. The plane was hot, the aircond was not working. And after all that, I got the nastiest surprise when I collected my luggage. One wheel was literally PULLED AND RIPPED OFF from my bag! I planned on taking the bus from the airport to my hotel (BAM1.80) rather than the taxi (BAM40),...
