The Emirates airlines is the only airline that I know of that has a full bar in the back of the A380. Absolutely fantastic for passing the time. First class food and drink galore, great staff. Great seating, great meals, great service and a fleet of limos (free) to take you on to your hotel. No other airline even comes...

What sets them apart is their desire to be the best but backing this up with investment. The key investment that makes a difference is staff to customer ratio. So many airlines have reduced staff numbers but Emirates have either maintained them or increased them. They where friendly and attentive. The seats comfortable and highly manoeuvrable. The bar whilst a...

The in-flight entertainment system offers numerous options to choose from. The food was of a remarkably high standard (can be easily compared to what is...

Very clean flight with most efficient pilots.

It can be several hours quicker flying from London to Johannesburg on a direct flight, but as there are often saving running into hundreds of pounds flying via Dubai, when flying for leisure the savings can more than make up for the inconvenience! What also makes the additional time more than acceptable is the truly great service provided on Emirates,...

This was our first long haul flight - 12 hours with a break at Dubai. There was, of course, restricted space but, once settled into our seats, it really was not too bad at all. The choice of inflight entertainment was huge, albeit a little American biased. The food was of a remarkably high standard. It was really very good...

Make sure you sign up for Emirates specials on their website we saved A TON of money on our family trip. I found a "buy one get one free" special...

I had an experience to fly from Saint-Petersburg (Russia) to Sydney (Australia) and to Rio (Brazil). It was very comfortable, food is perfect (one of the best food), all alcohol is free, good choice of entertainment, fantastic welcoming personnel! Good value for money! Always chose them for long flights!
