I have nothing against the other airlines, just want to
plug this for free post this as nothing interesting is coming to my mind today.
I don’t know if it applies for all but most of the Emirates flights I know adjusts their time of arrival to Dubai to arrive at dawn or at night, obviously to avoid the heat outside, especially in summer. A very clever scheme not to scare the tourists away.
My daughter was treated marvellously by the staff while onboard, and was given a lovely backpack filled with goodies and one very nice book which she thoroughly enjoyed. Her meals were interesting and, and she was always served first, again thoughtful and appreciated.
The inflight entertainment console is conveniently located right in front of you and the options are endless!
You could start any of the programs or films at ANY point you wanted so you dont have to wait for them to start over. It also had a juke box in it with every possible popular, jazz, classical albums from almost any artist you could think of. It also had EVERY number one J-pop single which kept me amused and nostalgic for hours. I couldn’t keep my earphones off my ear even when I was
There are enough program choices to satisfy all ages, tastes and nationalities. On our flight to Dubai there was the opportunity to watch 2 complete movies out of an impressive selection of Hollywood, Bollywood, Arabic, Filipino and Chinese ones. Sub-titles were also there for you to select in a range of languages. Didn’t fancy a film? Many different TV programmes from comedy to sport to general interest were on-line. Audio? About 20 channels of music catering for all tastes. And the kids? Sixteen games were there to keep them amused. Some computer type – remember Tetris? Also a few for the older generation as well as one which was interactive with any other passengers playing!
When it comes to entertainment in the sky, Emirates is A-class.
Plenty of leg room even in the economy section. The seats are big and comfortable. Our 12-hour long haul flight from Nagoya was painless.
Food was not as impressive as that of Lufthansa German Airlines but it was not yuck as well. Except for champagne, all drinks thinkable are free, anytime you want it, how you want it.
All in all, it wins hands down – other issues notwithstanding. Don’t just take my word, experience Emirates yourself!
