“Very Dissapointed”
Review of Emirates


Reviewed 28 July 2021

I am a frequent traveler and often fly with Qatar or Etihad. Because all of my friends recommended me to try emirates and I book my trip for July 17th from Seattle Washington and return on the 31st of July. I m was very excited and had high hopes about the services. My entire experience was very bad from the check in until the flight landed in dubai. Emirates let passengers travel who has invalid passport. ( i was unaware about my passport that was expired in March and Emirates let me travel from USA to Dubai and from Dubai to India) that was very surprising. However I boarded the plane and the service in the cabin was worst. One of the attendees was very rude and ignored most of my requests. When I asked for coffee couple times they told me they will get it and forgot both the times. The food they served was cold. One of the flight attendant seemed very frustrated and in a rush to serve also she was the one who ignored my request and had an attitude when I reminded her about my coffee and told her that she forgot. She said "Sorry I will get you when I am done" I wasn't sure what she was doing rather I saw her just running back and forth empty
handed and funny thing is she never came back until few minutes before landing to Dubai. I took the connecting flight from Dubai to India and the experience was ok than the prior flight however when I landed India the Indian immigration bureau had to stop me and investigate for 4 hours becuae the Emirates allowed me to travel with expiry passport. The immigration officer called the Emirates employees and they showed up I am not sure what they discussed but after flying for 21hrs I still had to wait there for over 4hrs to get out. Luckily I was indian national and had no issues entering my country. I have my return flight on the July 31st and get a email from Emirates saying my flight is canceled and I need to contact my travel agent to book a new one. " I got the email just fee days prior to my flying date" how I am suppose to look for another flight in such short notice and plus who is going to pay for mt extended stay here in india. Now I am struggling to look for flights and the one which are available are expensive. I am never going to travel via Emirates again neither will recommend my friends who recommended me.

It is very traumatic experience Emirates would have put my status in jeopardy. Thank God I was indian national to clear the immigration. Very irresponsible staff and worst service.

This was a very smooth and polished experience.

The in flight food was excellent and the entertainment selection extensive, including some fairly recently released movies.

The flight crew were all very attentive and helpful.

An excellent airline.

I flew to Madrid on the 3rd of July after a long time of non-traveling due to Covid. The flight was quite busy and I couldn't get an upgrade. However, my flight was very comfortable and I was very well looked after especially by flight attendant Hazem, #466118. Thank you Hazem for making my trip as comfortable as possible:)
It felt sooo good to be flying again!

I fly Emirates for over 4 years now and the customer service still amazes me every time.
You call 10 call services during Covid and 9 of them will have a 30min waiting que, not Emirates, they answer within 1 minute and solve your problems within 5.
The customer care is truly the best in the world.
