I have flown with Emirates a number of times and have reviewed their long-haul flights in Business Class and First Class. My trip reports can be found below.
Privacy, personalized service, and glamour typify Emirates’ cabins, and Emirates recently upgraded the on-board Lounge/Bar on its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft where you can stretch your legs and mingle with other fliers.
We love their First Class product. Gold-clad suites come with a sliding door, a personal mini-bar, and adjustable ambient lighting. At night, the crew will convert your seat to a super comfy, fully flat bed with a mattress, so you can arrive at your destination totally refreshed. If you don’t feel refreshed, take a shower in the sky. First Class private suites are available on all Emirates Airbus A380 and A340-500 aircraft and most Boeing 777 aircraft. First Class cabins on other aircraft offer flat-bed seats or deeply-reclining comfort seats.
Emirates have introduced the world’s first moisturizing pajamas designed for airline use and to overcome dry air, so passengers get a better nights sleep. They are available to First Class travelers on Emirates overnight long-haul flights.
I rate the Middle Eastern Carriers; Qatar, Etihad and Emirates as the top airlines for First Class and have compared Emirates vs. Etihad vs. Qatar Airways to rank which is the best Airline in the Middle East. They all also feature in my top 10 best business class airlines in the world.
All Emirates flights arrive and depart from Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International airport. This terminal comprises two concourses: Concourse A (the world’s first A380 purpose-built facility, accommodating 20 air bridge gates) and Concourse B. Both concourses feature Business and First Class lounges. My flight departed from Concourse A, and I have reviewed the Emirates First Class Lounge in Concourse A at Dubai International Airport separately.
