i am travelling to london and returning from rome to sydney at the end of this year. it is the first time (apart from small trips within australia) on a long and international flight- what do people think of emirates? we have booked our flight, but is this a good company to go with compared to Air Japan, Austrian Airways and cathay pacific?
Not to worry . . Emirates is one of the best airlines I have flown, besides having worked with them closely on work.
Its got one of the youngest fleet of aircrafts & winners of several airline awards... so sit back, relax and enjoy your holiday.
Flew Emirates in 2003 from Perth to Athens, then after backpacking the Greek islands and Egypt, flew Emirates from Cairo thru Abu Dhabi back to Perth.
Got upgraded from Economy to Business on the Abu Dhabi to Perth leg and loved it.
Certainly in the top 3 airlines in the world, and deservedly so.
Just sit back and enjoy!!!
Consider yourself lucky to be flying with emirates!
I was really impressed with them. Brilliant service, I found it really easy to make alterations to my flights etc and they were really professional, then also in the air, my flights were quite long and I was impressed with inflight entertainment system (hundreds of films!) and even the meals were quite nice as airline food goes!!
Flown few times by Emirates.Genarally good.
However once during a flight from Frankfurt to Dubai,happened to see an airhostess (who was a bit old for that job)was not only unfriendly but was rather rude to the passengers.She was curt to an old couple sitting in front of me.Many passengers felt that she was unfit for this kind of job.This could be a stary case.
Cathey Pacific is also a good airliens.No expereince with other airlines that you have mentioned.
