Check in was not good. They told me I needed a QR code for my vaccine card and pcr test per emirates rules. I spoke with emirates and they said this was not necessary and it would be handled in Boston. The agent at check in would not check me in without the code. I had to pay $275 for another pcr in airport with a QR code. Guess what?? Emirates did NOT need it and I wasted $275 on a test. Horrible experience. They need to get with with their partner airline and know the rules.

They had no mercy for two women over 80 years old, they only gave them a wheelchair and left them on a waiting list for more than 6 hours, they did not speak English and could not eat or move, they also transported them all the time through the airport from one gate to another. airline customer service are very rude and very abrupt to speak and give information. the truth is I have a very bad concept about the airline

I paid extra to board zone 1 they called zone 1-3 at the same time so that was pointless. Crew was unfriendly and I felt like an inconvenience. Wasn’t able to go to a gate had to take a shuttle to the gate and that process was a mess. I won’t fly sun country again unless it is an emergency.
