    First time flyer on the mighty A380 and what a pleasure. Flying isn't a novelty for,min fat due to standing 6ft5 have used multiple seat review websites to gather some knowledge on who best to fly with, just for that extra bit of comfort. Emirates stood out from the minute I stood at check in. In ...

    Have now flown Manchester to Auckland via Dubai and Melbourne twice in last 18months. On both occasions everything was fine and acceptable. My only criticism is the Staff are a little cold and not very friendly, but do their job efficiently. Apart from one all flights were on time. The return ...

    DBX - SIN (12 Aug, 3:25am). Terrible service on this flight. The late night meal, according to the menu, was supposed to be a panini bread roll, muffin, and tea/coffee. The bread rolls were handed out by the FAs, but the other items were not forthcoming. Later when the FAs came though to ...

    The First Class Lounge near gate 123 was a joke. I arrived at 2 a.m. in the morning and the receptionist behaved like he just had to work double shift (sleepy and unmotivated). The lounge hosted only three passengers at that time. I was negatively surprised by the poor F&B offer. In Emirates ...

    DXB/SIN A380 rear cabin of business class 03.25 departure. The new A380 only lounge in Dubai is better than the one in Terminal B but noticeably more crowded though now that QF have moved in with their 2 A380's daily. I don't find the EK lounges very relaxing too open in my view, but I do like ...

    Boarding at LHR was strictly by Row number and happened in a very controlled manner. The flight was on time and arrived early. Two meals were served breakfast and lunch/dinner. Both were of good quality and certainly as good economy food as I have had elsewhere. The IFE (ICE) was superb ...

    I like the quietness of the A380 but the seats in the business class are so narrow, they waste alot of space in the plane to provide more privacy but it lost its business class luxury comparing to emirates B777 which i love to travel on business class in it

    This review covers three flights on the A380 : LHR-DXB, BKK-DXB,DXB-LHR. The chauffeur drive was well organised, Mercedes in UK & Thailand, Volvo in Dubai. Check-in in LHR was mayhem and in BKK desperately slow. The lounges in LHR & BKK are pleasant though undersized, London cracking at ...

    I chose the aisle seat (47C) for my JFK-DXB flight online on Emirates website, which is fairly easy to use. Check in was rather a bit cold but upon boarding, I could feel the size of the A380. The front most cabin is the quietest on the lower deck area - so would highly recommend choosing a seat ...
