They were unable to provide gluten free and lactose free meals for both flights. The only food they gave me was a bowl of chopped lettuce - nothing else and that was delivered by a rude hostess. They have advised they cannot provide more than one type of meal. Obviously customers cannot have more than one food allergy!!!!!! What century...

Going to Bangkok was awesome. Going back, not so much. Not because I was sad to leave Thailand, but the lack of comfort on the return. I had a connection from Flydubai, which is another review, and I got to DXB with 7 hours to wait till my flight. I got there and immediately went to the Business lounge. It...

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.

I hope I never have to use this airlines again. I had to return before 7 days of my travel, they said there was a restriction, and it would cost $1,000+ to make the change. So, I had to buy another ticket. When I tried to open original ticket, they said it would cost about $400. Suraj

This was my third Emirates flight and like the previous ones, it was just transport. There is no camaraderie between the cabin crew and no cabin crew-passenger interaction. The meal service is something from the 80s, while the 777 we flew in on this leg was old, tired and disappointing. Overall not a patch on 'real' full service airlines like...

Best flight ever. No jet lag as we left at 6am Sydney time and arrived in Rome at 8pm the same day!!! Flew on Airbus 380 (double decker), larger seats, larger screens, camera on the tail so you can see the whole airplane leave the runway and land even at night. Lots of movies, plenty of food and if you...

We could not fault our flights with Emirates we had 6 flights with them during our six week holiday. We flew economy on the 380 and 777 and all our flights arrived and departed on schedule the cabin crew were friendly and attentive and the meals were of a good standard the inflight entertainment made our journeys so much shorter...

My journey to Accra via Dubai- food & service was good, but on the way back, it was terrible. What was served, was not what was on the menu. Food was not good at all. I brought this to the notice of the Supervisor, who said that they have changed the Caterer or trying a new Caterer or something like...
