I have flown with Emirates in First Class and have reviewed my long haul flights. My trip reports can be found below. I have also reviewed Emirates flights in Business Class.
Emirates has more than 240 wide body planes in its fleet, carrying more than 40 million passengers to more than 100 destinations in the world per year. The Dubai based airliner is also the largest operator of the Airbus A380, with currently 74 of this aircraft type in its fleet and 66 more on order. The success of Emirates is very much based on the comfort and space onboard its A380s which are used on both shorthaul and longhaul. 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 moisturising pyjamas designed for airline use and to overcome dry air so passengers get a better nights sleep. They are available to First Class travellers on Emirates overnight long haul flights.

Emirates brand new first class suite on the Boeing 777 will launch in December and the layout will change from a 1-2-1 configuration down to 2 rows in a 1-1-1 configuration. Read More.
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.
