In house check-in is also available for Emirates flights, and passengers can simply visit one of its check-in counters at their departure airport.

Emirates is a great airline, they have all the luxury on board, super friendly, multinational personell and they take really good care of their customers. Even though my meal choice for vegetarian wasn't registered properly, the staff took care of me and made sure I was able to eat a vegetarian meal after all, AND on all 4 of my emirates flights.

Wheelchair was booked all through the journey but at the connecting airport no information was passed on so had to walk with great difficulty to the connecting gate. Very annoying, stressful and painful. Very poor communication system. Please improve.

For some reason I could not book my seats as I wanted a window seat, and I had to ask at the check in desk when I got there. However, there were none available but when I went to the ticket desk the gentleman there managed to get me window on one and an aisle seat on the next flight. All the remainder of me Emirates flights were window seats.

I was not informed by the agent on the telephone that I had to pay extra if I needed to confirm my seat when doing the booking- I only discovered that when I tried checking which seat I was allocated.
