Airline Review: Emirates A380 Business class
Flight Booked: London to Dubai return.
Seats: “honeymoon” centre seats both ways, as I was travelling with a friend.
Checking in at Heathrow was as seamless as you would expect for a business class traveller, however the business class lounge seemed a little “lacking” compared to their hub cities lounge. I guess for a such a major city, I expected more?
My travel buddy and I sat in seats next to each other in the centre of the plane, there was a privacy screen for those who are sick of talking to their buddy, haha, or if it’s a stranger next to you, and you just want some additional privacy. The seats are flat beds, and long enough for the tallest traveller to lay in comfortably. I’m 5’10 and managed to still have ample room, my friend is 5’7 and could have squeezed a midget down by her feet no problem!
The additional storage space was a welcome relief ,my winter boots could be removed for the long flight and store out of sight in the foot rest. My lap top had its own area next to me, right by the plug to keep it charged, and right in front of the all important mini bar! It was restocked with juices and cola, but for anything harder we had to head to the private bar down the back of the plane.
The A380 was roomy and filled with light, and it was quiet and comfortable. A few wines in, and a nap was in order! Meals on board were fantastic, with a menu with plenty of options. The food came out well presented and as tasty as you’d expect from airline food- of course much better than economy meals!
The bar area at the back of business class, is used exclusively for those in business. First class have their own bar! The seating area was a welcome relief to stretch my legs, and chat to fellow travellers ( my friend promptly fell asleep on take off, leaving me to amuse myself!) The staff were superb mixing up cocktails and serving nibbles for the duration of the flight.
Would I fly business class again? Of course! The sheer comfort of the A380 and the exceptional service of the Emirates airline certainly make it one of the best options. Love love love!!!
