14 Nov 2013 : Rating 1/ 5 . I traveled with my family from Pakistan Lahore to Harare Zimbabwe using Emirates. I was shocked because my husband had had an operation and it was my son's birthday on the 9th Sept 2012 and the crew promised us a cake and they didn't give us, and when I asked for it they said sorry we forgot - can we give u dessert. I was so disappointed because it was my son's birthday and he never had a cake for the first time. In that flight with me what they did I rate them zero, as that time I was so disappointed - like they were thinking I am a worm who is in economy class and business class has special people - that's why they asked me - they can give me dessert from business class like it was very special but it was not special for me because it was not a cake for my son they thought I am poor who can't afford buisness class thats why they didn't care for my son's birthday.
