Travel Forums General Talk Emirates Airlines - Good or Bad ?

Hi all,
Flying from Manchester to Shanghai (via Dubai) this year. Just wondering what people think?
Read mixed reviews so thought i'd ask people that have probably had loads of experience rather than just either 'one good' or 'one bad' flight.
Thanks people.

I flew Emirates a couple of years ago and I really liked them. The food was good, the seat was comfy and there was a good selection of entertainment options.
The one thing I don't like about Emirates is that most of their flights have online stops.

Emirates is one of the best airlines I have flown with. Good choice of food (and they have never run out of my choice either), good service with bringing drinks and snacks around and good seat back entertainment. Rest assured you will have good flights with them!

When i flew with them from manchester - Hong kong (via Dubai) I had no complaints apart from there wasn't as much leg room as i was expecting.....Food was quite scrummy too!!

Myself, and anyone I know who has also flown with Emrites, has only had positive experiences with them :)
