Emirates Economy Review: Are you booking an Emirates economy class ticket?
If so, then you have landed on the right page. You must be thinking that this is a sponsored post but please note, it is NOT. Emirates is one of my preferences based on my experiences.
There are 30 things on which I rate the flights, I will soon make it public. My rating system is called “Comfys“. I give this airline 9.1 comfys (out of 10, It the maximum I have rated any airlines)
So, why do I prefer and suggest Emirates airlines?
It is not that I will travel every time in Emirates economy class, it can be super expensive at times, can be a longer flight as compared to rest options like Delhi, India to Bangkok, Thailand. No, I will never choose Emirates in such scenarios.
Emirates economy class provides comfort, luxury and with choices. This is how:
1. The SEAT SIZE
This flight offers big and comfortable seats. If I am on this flight, I am confident that I will be at peace and comfortable throughout the flight. Even the middle row seats are not uncomfortable. Every seat has a personal fan and light. The armrests are movable so in case you are lucky to have the next seat empty, just put the armrest up and enjoy the bigger space.
2. The LEG ROOM
You get enough space to let your legs relax. It is spacious and your knees won’t touch the next seat unless you are 6ft 4″+ approx. You also get a footrest in some flights.
3. The ICE – information, communication, and Entertainment system
This is a screen with a vast multilingual variety. The system will be available for you from the moment you sit in the flight. You can choose from Movies, TV shows, News, Radio, games, Information on Dubai- everything that a tourist needs to know, and much more. There is so much for entertainment that you will not get bored even if it is a 17hrs flight.
This is what I chose on my flight and I loved it! Do check it out…
It is a small thing but it really helps, the flight information is always available on the top corner of your screen. You don’t have to stop your movie to check how much time is left to reach your destination. The moment you click it, your screen splits into two parts – your movie and the flight information.
There are so many options for you that it becomes difficult to check out all the things and pick the best. But even that is taken care of through a book. There is a manual in your seat pocket that tells you what all you can watch, so definitely browse through it.
In case, if you get bored of all the TV then you can read some good books. I would like to recommend some good books for tree lovers here.
4. The PICTURE QUALITY
It is good every time, there are various screen sizes in different type of Emirates aircraft. You can see it yourself in the above video.
5. ONBOARD WIFI
This is my favourite as I can stay connected with you! If you are a skyward member, it is a free membership, you get 20mb free for 2hours. You have paid options for more data like 500mb for 10 USD. Do become a member to get benefits like redeemable miles, onboard data etc.
The staff is polite, helpful and understand your needs. This can vary obviously as different flights have different crew members.
7. Keep your electronics charged
There are sockets on the seats – one of 110V and another is a USB socket. Just plug your USB cable in the port and you are good to go.
8. To top it all – CAMERAS
Yes, you get to see outside of the plane – the actual outside view from different angles irrespective of your seats. There are 3 options to choose from, view from the front camera, view from the camera beneath the plane, view from the camera at/near the tail. So pick the best view and enjoy!
Here is one of the feed, I couldn’t hold my camera still, haha but you will get an idea.
It is good and much better than other airlines. You can opt from a variety of meals online prior to your flight. You will not be disappointed with the menu or the taste. The red and white wine served in the airplane are very good, exclusively made for Emirates passengers.
I am a vegetarian so can’t comment on the non-vegetarian food being served. Here are a couple of meals I have tried:
Before the food is served you get a menu with all the information on your food choices, I think this is a good idea as you get time to decide and you can be sure of what you want.
And, it is written in more than one languages. So no worries if you are not comfortable with English.
The Lavatory size is also good, you can do your business at peace. Haha…
I can’t comment on the ride quality for obvious reasons but I have had a good experience all the time.
With all the above-mentioned facilities, Emirates economy class seems no less than a Business class… I will not leave you thinking about the business class of this airlines.. I will show it to you 😀
Must-Follow Tips for any airlines:
A. Become a member prior to booking and earn miles and enjoy other privileges.
B. Checkin online – it starts 48 hrs prior to the flight. Do it asap to reserve seats of your choice.
