This was a really great flight. Lovely staff. Incredible assortment of options for in-flight entertainment. Wonderful meal choices, even though the flight was only a few hours long. I wish it had been a longer flight and I'd been on the plane for longer.

More silent because of better isolation and more Space for your legs because of the wide cabinroom upstairs.

Emirates have a very good business class service - even more so on their A380s with a skybar than on their 777s with a somewhat unpleasant 2-3-2 configuration. They are a very handy airline to setup combined trips to Middle east and Far East destinations from Europe. In February e.g. I flew Amsterdam-Dubai-Muscat-Dubai-Bangalore-Dubai-Amsterdam on a single business class ticket under...

I have flown on Emirates many times and always had a wonderful experience. One time my bags were a little over the weight, but being that I was a loyalty member they did not charge. A few other flights went by and they did not charge. My last flight, I again was over the weight limit and was charged nearly...

I had a 14 hour flight with Emirates, giving me ample time to consider this review. The aircraft was the largest on which I have ever flown -- two levels, the lower being economy and the upper business through super first class (this was a plane that had at least one luxury private suite). I sat in row 86...which wasn't...

Definitely one of the top airlines offering 1st class service, maybe just behind singapore airlines and Air France. the staff is well trained, polite and efficient. Drinks are at the top: choice between 2 Dom Perignon, and food was ok. The suite is comfortable with various amenities but the seat is somehow awkward to recline. Great to have the shower...
