Flew 4 times with Emirates in Economy class, the only positive things I can say are that the Staff are helpful and friendly, the services are satisfactory and the luggage allowance is good. You are surely better off in either business or first class. The seats in Economy class are uncomfortable and cramped, they only tilt about 2° backwards and...

To request a special meal you have to notify the airline before 24 hrs of departure. Even if you want to change your seat online, you have to be very quick because the seats are already booked, even though you are not given an option when purchasing the tickets.Our flights were return from O.R.Tambo JNB to London Heathrow, via Dubai....

Good flight and went without any delays which is always a bonus. Plenty of leg room on the aircraft. Meals were okay but we’ve had better.

My favourite airline !!! Luckily, I have had the privilege to travel in many airlines to many countries but I always tried my level best to commute via Emirates. Only due to their upmost service, clean planes, generous leg room and conformable seating. I have only travelled economy class & hate travelling long hauls, however mentally and physically I feel...

In this day and age it is good news to arrive safe and sound, with bags intact, at your chosen destination. We last flew emirates to Europe, a very long flight from Oz, three years ago and were very happy with the experience - five stars. There has been a marked decline based on our recent flight. The seats were...

I just returned from Khatmandu and the main portion of the trip were the Non-Stop Emirates Flights to / from Dulles. The 4 hour flight from Dubai to Khatmandu was on Fly Dubai Airlines (booked through the Emirates website and is also an affiliate of Emirates). The aircraft to / from Dulles was the A380 and was very nice. We...

Over the years I have travelled with many airlines. As would be common knowledge both the middle eastern and Asia companies far out class other airlines. For the first time I decided to fly with Emirates on the A380. In life I have made good & bad decisions. To opt for Emirates on this trip was a wow decision. From...

I had an economy tkt and they upgraded me to business although I do not use this company a lot Unfortunate living in Thailand the most convenient for me to fly around is Thai Airways that even if used hundreds of time never upgraded me ... Highly suggested if available with a direct route where you are traveling
