everything has much improved from my previous flight from LAX to BKK about 1.5 years ago. cabin was still a bit cold, but flight attendants were able to give me an additional blanket. they ran out of blankets last time i flew on China Eastern. entertainment was higher quality, food tasted better and snacks were available throughout the flight. boarding was also much more organized compared to last time which was like a angry mob scrambling to get on the plane.

New planes. Comfortable. They include a small snack for a short flight. Free baggage included in the price.

The 1h flight was late for 1h. There is no English magazine or something to read. The staff is a bit rough, a bit precipitated.

After our trip from Cape Town to Dubai with Emirates which was not that great we where pleasantly surprised when we where bumped up to business class from Dubai to Bangkok. We did not expect this. Although we did not take advantage of all the extras business class has to offer we had a great nights sleep and the breakfast was superb. The cabin crew was excellent all the time. Thank you Emirates.

No one to assist my friends enter the plane. No one to help with hauling minor carryon baggage up the outdoor staircase. Very difficult and no offer at all for anyone in a party of six to help. No lift and no one offered assistance in business class to help at all.once on the plane service was outstanding. Passengers in 70s and 80’s and no knowledge of the need to to climb stairs and without any assistance. Attendants watched the elderly struggle.

I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives.

First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
