Not much more room than cheap airline. Thin seat. If in aisle seat and your leg is slightly protruding it will get a whack every time the trolley passes (with no apology).

LHR-DXB-DAR return. On the first leg the cabin crew appeared thoroughly disinterested. When eventually the meal reached Row 76 it was luke warm. The drinks trolley arrived as we were finishing the meal and tea and coffee was not offered. Landing at DXB was delayed for over one hour by a duststorm that we understood had been raging for several days. We boarded the B777 for DXB-DAR on time, only to sit on the stand for some two hours whilst other flights were given greater priority to take off in the limited visibility caused by the duststorm. To be fair the flight and service on this leg was quite reasonable once airborne. However we arrived at DAR so late that we had missed our onward flight to ZNZ and had to pay for a replacement and to add to the stress Emirates had opted to leave one of our bags either at LHR or DXB. The return from DAR-DBX was good but the having boarded the A380 at DBX very efficiently the departure from the stand on the DXB-LHR was delayed for an hour due to a medical emergency (obviously not Emirates fault). Once airborne it was again evident that the cabin crew simply cannot cope with the number of passengers a fully loaded A380 and once again service did not match expectations. From past experience Emirates has always warranted its 4 star rating, but standards have clearly slipped in recent time and that is no longer the case. We will need to find an alternative airline for our next trip to DAR/ZNZ

This was the most comfortable long haul flight I've ever taken. Oslo to Dubai. The seats were pleasantly squishy, my elbow wasn't jogged when folks walked down the aisle and there was plenty of room between my knees and the back of the chair in front (I'm only 163cm) but there was several inches clearance. My kid could squeeze past me when visiting the toilet rather than me having to get out of the chair. The food was pleasant, the staff service was excellent.

Six flights from Glasgow to Sydney and back. The seats were poor With little room. The cabin was noisy, cramped and the service was poor. To top it off the meals were barely edible. How can you give this airline 4 stars. Thankfully the entertainment system was top notch. next time I will fly long haul from London on the A380 and never again on a Boeing 777 in this configuration.

MUC-DXB-MUC. Both legs on an aisle seat. Seat is quite comfortable and provides enough support for a 6 to 7 hours trip. IFE has a wide choice of movies and series, games and so on. Food is good, on both legs two choices of main course available. Crew friendly and spot on, drinks served through the flight.

Dubai to Dublin - booked in 9.30 for 14.55 flight in hope of getting good seat, I was given seat 17A. I found this seat has restricted legroom due to bulkhead. Beside me I had a large gentleman with 6 month baby and a lady on the outside. Before take off I complained to cabin crew who promised to sort out after take of. This and three further requests to be reseated where ignored so I eventually found myself another seat. I found the staff of this flight the worst I have ever flown with.

Took 4 flights with Emirates over last 3 weeks - all long haul. Every one was late. The service, particularly on the A380 was terrible as was the food on every trip. They were so late on both our legs out to Africa via Dubai we missed our domestic flight out of Dar Es Salaam and it cost us another $560 to get on another. Emirates stance is hard luck. We travel extensively and we will never use Emirates again. We hadn't used them for some years as we were not impressed then and had hoped that they had improved - alas they have deteriorated even more.

Seats very hard with no support. Probably ok for a short journey but even with extra leg room it was uncomfortable for me as average height on a 7 plus hour journey. We had seat row 80 to our destination and row 51 on the way back.

Dubai to Melbourne on Qantas codeshare flight. Seat was very uncomfortable and felt like padding was worn down to nothing. Meal service chaotic and seemingly no order to service with people around us bring served and others missed. Ran out of one of the choices and vegetarian meal offered which was in edible. Bread roll on some trays and not others. No hot drink offered. Although a range of entertainment choices, nothing much appealed as many were Arabic or Bollywood. Overall not as good as the previous leg of the trip on Qantas. I would not choose Emirates again.

Emirates needs to review their seat comfort. Seats are not comfortable and feel like seating on a plastic chair. Also, please increase leg room and seat width.

Dublin to Dubai after take off the person in front reclined her seat during the whole fight till the breakfast time. During diner time I asked the air hostess to ask the lady to put her seat straight so I could eat my meal properly she said she cannot do that. So during the full flight it was a total nightmare. They tea/coffee tray after meal never show up after 45mins I ended up asking for a tea. I used to travel with Emirates before and I was always happy - but this time no tonic drink, no tea till you ask and recline seat during all flight that enough for me.

Seated at the end of a 4 seat row. Each time food trolley came up I was bumped on shoulder. Also had water spilled by stewardess on me. People queuing for toilet standing in front of me. Not pleasant with just a wall in front of me. Everything too restricting, no space to move. Also didn't get seat I had booked as someone at Dubai airport when I presented boarding pass changed my seat without saying!! And where are smiles these days. Not a good flight.

Bassinet seat. No baby seatbelt provided until we has started leaving the gate. No baby meals provided on 8hr flight DXB-MAN. Bassinet position meant it was impossible for me, positioned by window to exit my seat without crawling under the bassinet as no room in front of seats. Entertainment system very good. Oriental meal consisted of coleslaw sandwich. No obvious flight attendant care as passenger walking around cabin just prior to landing. Free strollers from gate to baggage claim. Would not recommend for travelling with babies and infants.

I am under 5' and thin. The seat recline button was broken/pushed in and did not recline. The passenger in the seat in front of me had their seat in the reclined position the entire flight from Melbourne to Dubai. The pain from sitting upright was unbearable. My back, neck, hips and bottom was that bad I put my blanket under my bottom just to relive the pain. It did not help. The cushioning was non existent and I am a petite person. Emirates in conjunction with Qantas pride themselves with their fleet. I was totally stressed out from not having any rest. I could not watch the seat back monitor as it was too close and getting out from my seat was difficult due to the seat in front of me being reclined. I have had many long haul flights but I would have to say this was the worst and most memorable.

Very hard, firm straight back seat with headrest positioned about shoulder blades and wouldn't shift. No lumbar support, simply awful. Like sitting on a wooden backed dining chair with minimal padding. Fortunately only in it for 3.5 hours, wouldn't have wanted to do long haul e.g. Brisbane/Dubai in it. Suffering made longer by plane having wrong waypoints laid in and spending a lot of the flight heading towards Sydney not Brisbane.

We returned home 3 days ago, flying from Venice to Dubai in 777. My husband is tall, so we had asked for exit seats, After arriving at the airport early (at 5.30 am in the hope of getting an exit seat) for a 10.10am flight. We were told sorry but all exit seats had already been reserved for Melbourne travellers (we are from NZ). The flight to Dubai was an horrendous 6 hours, the seats were so close, and five minutes into the flight while we were still climbing, the woman and man in front of us put their seats back! It was a hell ride, one we wont be repeating.

Sydney-Dubai-Sydney. Staff attentive and polite. WiFi you get 10MB free and pay $1US for an additional 10MB. It took me some time to connect, but once I did was all good.

Emirates have tried to squeeze the last drop out of the orange in their economy seats and seating plan in their B777. The 3x4x3 configuration is too tight for this aircraft and makes the aisle just wide enough for the food cart. If in any aisle seat you will be hit every time they come past. The seat width and legroom is fine if you are an 8 year old child but for someone who is 6" 1' it is not a pleasurable experience.

I was disappointed with the 3x4x3 configuration on the aircraft. The services provided by the crew was pleasant, the PTV was nice, but what is bothering me the most are the seat width and access in/out of the seat. The seat width was really narrow and basically you would make contact with the passenger beside you all the time. And accessing in/out of the seat will disturb the passenger beside you, which probably both of you will need to stand up for you to access out/in. The aisles are also narrow due to the 3x4x3 configuration. I really dislike this configuration.

Very narrow seats and aisles. Very uncomfortable if your neighbour is large. In the aisle seat you are continually knocked by staff passing up and down aisle. The good legroom is gained by reducing the cushioning on the seat so they soon become uncomfortable on a long flight. and if the person in front reclines the seat the advantage of the legroom is sacrificed.

Auckland to Brisbane. We had chosen seats 52J and 52K bulkhead seats in the first row of the second economy class cabin which did offer more leg room. They are located next to the galley so you get a lot of noise from that area. This did not bother me at all, but on a much longer flight, if you wanted to sleep, may have been a bad choice. The hot towels were very welcome, and also the drink service was efficient. When the evening meal was served, we seemed to wait ages for the cart to appear at our row. We were offered the choice offered on the menu of Beef or Salmon, and then immediately told the Salmon had run out some time ago. Then why offer it? Our row was not offered tea or coffee during the meal service. Just prior to landing the female flight attendant decided to tidy her hair, and apply make-up in the galley mirror which took some time, she should have done this out of sight of passengers. I think Singapore and Thai in my opinion offer much more for economy passengers.

I am 175 cm tall and weight 78 kg. FRA via DXB to PER and back. Seat comfort is comparable to a cheap charter airline. I cannot understand how Emirates has such a good performance rating. We were so disappointed to Emirates because of the service and the quality of seating. I am sure we will choose for our next longhaul flight SIA again. SIA and THAI has a better Service and better seating comfort.

I have made many long haul flights out of Washington DC, including some 17 hour flights to Narita, Japan, but this 14 hour flight was by far the worst and most uncomfortable journey I have ever made. I usually get up frequently to help with leg swelling but sitting in the middle of the 4 pack of seats was nearly impossible getting out, even for me as a 5'7" thin build woman. General back pain and discomfort for the entire flight. I wish I could say the entertainment made up for it, but it was in no way worth it over other comparative flying experiences I have had on airlines like British Airways and Qatar. I was generally looking forward to flying Emirates after hearing great things, but do your body a favor and avoid this economy flight if at all possible.

I really don't know how all the other airlines have much more space than this one. First of all, how can they be number 1 airline when economy seats are totally uncomfortable? Configuration 3x4x3 is too much because as a passenger you don't have enough space and also for cabin crew who are struggling to pass with all service trolleys. Also, between the services you need to be careful not to be hit by cart on - knee, leg or shoulder. As someone mentioned before, it's so poor ambience when you see full cabin with all the luggage, bags and poor cabin crew who don't have space for all this stuff. What are they willing to do just to have more money?

The A380 is great and Economy class BKK - Hong Kong is really acceptable. Good food and decent entertainment, but they didn't offer wine and passengers didn't know you had to ask for it. The one thing I didn't like was the quality of the headphones and the background hiss was awful, however I also have a hearing problem, but this was terrible. I ended up watching a film on the laptop.

We flew with A380. The seats with this headrest behind your head is a disaster. Your head is pressed forward all the time - many people were complaining about this. You cannot sit relaxed with your head to the back like in the normal Boeing.

The seats are not wide enough at all, the return flight my backside started to ache as 7 hrs is a long flight on uncomfortable seats. TV is OK but the system is dated on the 777 and was a bit grubby. I flew on 3 of these and only one had a nice TV, on the other hand the A380 was much more comfortable and a much better flight, I guess because of the added room.

The 3x4x3 seat configuration in a 777 is deeply uncomfortable, and unsafe. I am not an unusual build for a western male at 6'2" and 110 kilograms but I cannot get into anything but an aisle seat where the aisle is so narrow that cabin staff have to ask me to move my upper body across the neighbouring passenger so they can get their trolleys past me. The risk of having scalding water spilt all over me while they are serving coffee is always there and it does happen, although not to me, yet. I understand Qatar have a 3x3x3 configuration, I think that is my next airline.

Seat was narrow, as many other people have mentioned. Legroom was okay but I was never comfortable - fortunately my flight was only 7 hours (MEL-SIN). The squab seems to move when the seat is reclined, meaning most people didn't try to recline their seats - which helped with room for the knees.

It was my first flight with Emirates and with an A380 and I (1,92m) had enough space for my long legs, which is not usual in economy-class when you are tall. While I slept, my legs touched the seat in front of me, but I'm used to that. People of "normal" size shouldn't have problems with the space. The TV- Screen and the entertainment system was very good and had a large choice of movies and music.

The Boeing 777 was not designed for 3x4x3 seating. It's horrible, and if you have the misfortune to be seated next to a larger person, your 11 hour flight is truly miserable. Never again - Qatar for me from now on.

First time on a B777-300ER. Seat 45C was the last seat before the rows with two seats started. Good recline (no one behind) but narrow seat and aisles are way too narrow so bumped constantly. Noisier than A380 so a long way (DBX-SYD) to put up with discomfort.

Manchester to Dubai. There were 3 of us travelling (2 adults and a 5 year old) and we had 3 of the centre 4 seats. Row 36 had a wall behind it but the seat seemed to fully recline and we could store pillows etc behind the seat and no one could kick us. We were close to the galley and toilet but that did not bother us. The seat had the new ICE which was fantastic, with a huge range of movies, tv shows, and music and widescreen monitor. We were not bothered by the 4 seats in the middle, it did not seem overly cramped, and the lack of a footrest was fine. The recline was very good, seat comfortable and I was able to stretch my legs under the seat in front. I am 5'11 and 15 stones. The food was very good, and good choice of drinks.

I travelled quite a few times in B777-300ER from DXB-GRU, Flight time is around 14 hours. It is always very uncomfortable to seated in 3x4x3 configuration as compared to Qatar airways 3x3x3 configuration. Sadly Emirates sacrifices the economy passengers comfort for higher revenue per seat.

I flew Auckland to London with a 9 month old and I thought cabin crew and bulk head seats were excellent. I was nervous about flying on my own with a baby but had no problems. The passengers I sat next to we're very friendly and helpful which was a godsend. A380's have great space if you need to stretch your legs (this is compared to other planes, you are still in a plane, you're not going to be able to jog around). Food nice, entertainment looked excellent, seats were hard so had to try and work it a comfy position. Probably impossible. They weren't worse than a lot of other airlines. Didn't like Dubai airport - so busy and airside hotel not open in the A380 terminal and after asking unhelpful customer services how I could get to the other terminals I only had an hour and they only had smoking rooms.

The reviews you will read about the 2x4x2 section at the very rear of the aircraft are true. 46K had more legroom, space between the seat and the window, and an overall feeling of a bit more privacy. The cons to 46K are that the armrest between 46J and K is a permanent one that cannot be raised or lowered. This might have eaten into the already slim seat width a bit, but it did not bother me being 5'8" and average size. Another con to being at the very back of the plane is that it takes a long time to deplane, and they were out of the meal I wanted by the time they got to me. 28A was just fine, but only because there was no one in the middle seat next to me. Originally there was, and after the doors we closed, the FA came and found him an aisle seat to move to. Before he moved, however, I was already sore from leaning against the window just so our shoulders wouldn't touch. Had he stayed there the entire 13.5 hr flight, that would have been terrible. The 3x4x3 layout overall is a bad idea for passenger comfort. Not only are the seats shoulder- touchingly narrow, but the other comments you've read about the aisle width are very true. I had to sidestep down the aisles to try and avoid bumping other passengers. And at meal/drink service time? Forget it. I did not have a problem with the lack of a footrest as some have commented. Sure, it would have been nice to have, but my feet touched the floor just fine and I'm 5'8". If this is a problem for you, I'd suggest using your carry on or, as I read in a different forum, bring a beach ball with you. When not inflated, it takes up almost no room, it costs $1, and if you partially inflate it, it won't roll and makes a good makeshift footrest.

Seats 46A-B 46J-K and the same in row 47 are good seats on the B777. This is where the plane narrows so seating is now 2-4-2. There are 4 rows with 2 seats left and right, but the best seats are row 46/47 you are far enough away from the toilets not to be bothered by pax queuing

Just perpetually uncomfortable. I am a male, 6' and of average height. The only thing that makes Emirates economy class bearable is the entertainment. We're looking to fly to New Zealand next year and trawling the airlines, to fly virtually anyone except Emirates.

The seat goes up at the front and I had to take off my shoes and put my feet on them to avoid cutting the blood circulation. My wife put her feet on top of her handbag. There are no foot rests. I have another flight prebooked with Emirates but after that I will not use Emirates again. I have no idea what size person you would have to be to be comfortable on one of their planes.
