We visited our family who have emigrated to Perth. As it is such a long journey we opted to go Business Class and this is definitely the way to do it. We flew on their A380 from Manchester to Dubai and then on to Perth. Yes, it is expensive, but if you can afford to do it, go for it; it is worthwhile.
We were quickly checked through security at each destination and were able to enjoy the comfort in each of Emirates Business Class lounges before our flights.
The flight itself was superb, especially the full flat bed, complete with mattress and blanket. Service was second to none with wonderful food and drink constantly being served and even though both flights were long, there was plenty to keep you entertained. Loved the beautiful free Amenity bags.
Our only disappointment, was the fact that free chauffeur service was included. It was indeed a good service but we hadn’t realised that although the mileage limit was 75 miles in the UK, Perth was only 45 kilometres. Our distance was 48k and we had to pay the full charge of $40Au each which was rather disappointing. However, it is mentioned in the small print!
We loved Perth, seeing family and also Emirates and will definitely visit again in the not too distant future.
