“Very good catering, service and IFE”
Review of Emirates


Reviewed 6 November 2019

It was my first time taking Emirates. I have heard a lot of people saying Emirates are overrated but I was pleasantly surprised how good they were.

Check-in was efficient in all three airports I used (Singapore, Dubai and Amman).

The catering was very good. Regional food was used, depending on the route. The portion was a lot bigger than most of the major airlines. Even for a 2.5-hr flight they offered a full meal service with a lot of items.

Most of the flight attendants I encountered were excellent. They helped passengers with hand luggages proactively, which I thought wasn't that necessary but was nice. They were very friendly and prompt during meal services. However they did not go around for drinks very often.

The IFE was also excellent. It was one of the best. However the movie selections were not as wide as they claimed on their website. Quite some movies listed on the website were not available inflight.

The seats were comfortable. Leg space was plenty.

Overall the flights were very good.

Normally Emirates Business Class is good on most aircraft. My experience on a 777 was not. Admittedly I though we had booked the A380 on all legs, which is superb, but the night flight from Bangkok to Dubai on the 777 was an ordeal. The seats were OK during the day, but if you are tall, you won’t be able to sleep on your side, as when reclined the metal footrest coincides with your ankle. Also the 2:2:2 configuration means that the person in the window seat has to climb over you to use the WC – not very Business Class!

Unfortunately I will be flying Business on an Emirates 777 shortly from DXB to CPT and am not looking forward to trying to sleep!

Emirates are a great airline and the service and food are excellent. The staff are mostly fantastic and helpful. If you have long haul travel why not try the Airbus A 380 business class. It's amazing. Private pods and a full range of titbits at your reach.

We travelled to Auckland from Riyadh and it was amazing experience.

Good Quality of Halal Food was available. Reasonable Luggage and luckily some extra seats.

They should work on Interactive Toys for Kids for such a long flights.

Thank you Emirates.
