Emirates is the company with the most A380s on order with a total of 140 and already 58 delivered. The number of in-flight services and interior design are one of the most amazing, especially in premium classes. Let’s review the A380 Emirates Business Class.
If you think that long haul flights are always painful and boring, it seems you never tried the A380 Emirates Business Class. With the entire upper floor dedicated to Business passengers, a standalone cocktail bar, some relaxation sofas and a 1-2-1 configuration offering maximum of privacy, the experience goes far beyond competitors. On ground, premium customers can enjoy a complimentary limousine service to go to/leave the airport, and a fantastic lounge at Dubai ; in addition, rates are one of the cheapest worldwide. This is unbeatable!
We already reviewed years ago an Emirates Business seat but this was the first we experiment the proper A380 Emirates Business Class one and I have to say it worth the value, especially the single window seats. They are actually a kind of mini-suites offering lot of privacy – away from the corridor – which is very convenient when you turn it into full flat bed.
Then the award-winning entertainment ICE system perfectly completes the overall, with a wide movies selection manageable through a touch pad located on the private mini-bar.
Taking off from Paris at daylight, catering was very nice with an interesting food & beverages selection for lunch. Our meal was well served and coocked to our seat. The only complaint is usual for Emirates Business Class: we would appreciated to be served at the plate and have an a-la-carte menu for unexpected hunger during the flight. Well, let’s say the company has an axis of improvement!
