Is Emirates first class worth it?
Emirates is a state-owned flag carrier airline based in Garhoud, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The airline is one of the numerous investments of The Emirates Group, which is owned by the government of Dubai’s Investment Corporation of Dubai.
The airline was in the year 2017 voted the best airline in the world at the TripAdvisor’s Choice Awards. The decision was arrived at after the travel firm scrutinized passenger written reviews to find out which airline out of the many offers the best service for its customers.
Among the reasons for which Emirates Airlines was voted the best by most travellers includes spacious legroom, seat comfort, customer service, cleanliness, food and beverage, and value for money. According to TripAdvisor, some customers claimed the luxury affiliated with Emirates is better than most executive suites in most hotels. Regardless of the luxuries, Emirates first class is very affordable. For instance, a first-class return ticket from London Gatwick to Dubai costs roughly £4,000 ($4,800), but for that price, Emirates provides its first-class passengers with an unforgettable experience.
Below are some reviews from passengers;
“When boarding as a first class passenger, you’re greeted and escorted to your seat by a flight attendant and offered complimentary Champagne. You’re given your own spacious cabin with sliding privacy doors and the kind of amenities that you’d expect to find in a high-end hotel. The leather seat reclines and becomes a lie-down bed.” Said Bill Holler
“Upon arrival in the cabin, you’ll find a wash bag filled with fragrances and toiletries by luxury fashion house Bvlgari, Gillette shaving foam, a toothbrush, Colgate toothpaste, and Axe deodorant and the feeling is royalty” Chris described
“The glossy wood paneling and gold trim provide the perfect frame for the view outside. First class on an Emirates Airbus A380 only has 14 seats, so the service is tailored to each individual. This makes attendance to passengers very great” said Marie
“If you need to freshen up at 40,000 feet, you can book a slot in one of two onboard showers and spas. The room has heated flooring and each passenger is given five minutes of running water during their 30-minute session. When you return to your seat, your assigned shower attendant will have left a fruit plate with honey waiting for you.” Said Owen
“Regionally inspired gourmet meals can be prepared for you at any time and are served on Royal Doulton bone china. Your suite can be transformed into a mini dining room by the flight attendant. What else can a man ask for again?” said Rory.S
“Emirates’ first class cabin is consistently deemed one of the best products in the sky, and for good reason. Each passenger gets their own suite — yes, suite, not seat. With 14 suites in a 1-2-1 configuration, there’s certainly a favorite spot for everyone” said upgradedpoints.com
“Without overhead baggage bins, the cabin feels extremely open and airy, but at the same time you’re within the privacy of your own personal suite. You’ve also got a “do not disturb” option if you want to catch some solid shut-eye, but with all this excitement going on, we’re not sure why you’d choose that option!” said upgradedpoints.com
“The first class seats have a 23″ width and 86″ pitch, which is more than enough room to relax for ~16 hours!” said Mary Ann
“The seats can be configured into a 78″ fully lie-flat bed with added mattress/topper and faux sheepskin blanket for maximum comfort. Your cabin crew will skillfully provide turndown service for you — all you have to do is ask!” said Hannah
