It is a full-service airline owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai and was founded by the royal family of Dubai. The company has been around since 1985 and nearly joined the Star Alliance in 2000. Several airlines, including Tap Portugal, Japan Airlines and Air Mauritius, operate codeshares with the airline.

Checking in online allows passengers to print out their own boarding pass and grants them permission to head straight for the boarding gate if they have no luggage to check in. If passengers do have luggage to check in, baggage drop-off counters are readily available. 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 are trying to do too much, service was very average on board both flights, careless attendant spilt drink all over me, and on leg to Dubai the service in our aisle was Fawlty. But both flights delayed only by ground control so no complaints there.

I booked a return flight with Emirates airline . On my flight from Dubai to Kabul, I was Surprised, the flight was operated by a low cost carrier (Fly Dubai) with very restricted services on board, different terminal, delayed flight. I was charged the price of a regular Emirates flight but had to take a much lower grade flight. If I have booked the same flight directly through Fly Dubai, I would have paid much less. Fly Dubai did not gave me any thing free to eat or drink event water also the charged me for every single things extra, I have paid AED 35 for movie, AED 10 for tea and I paid AED 102 for food. All together I paid AED 147 now I would to ask you refund because I paid for those things already.

I ordered a vegetarian meal at check in & the staff said it would be fine for the Dubai to London leg. I got a special meal but it was chicken! They had no spare veg meals on the flight. My screen also stopped working early in the flight & an attempt was made to fix it but it never worked again & they stopped trying & didn't make any explanation.

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.
