I am flying Emirates this coming Saturday and it seems lately that there are a lot of mixed opinions about what the Emirates experience is in real life, versus what the airline bills it to be. I'm flying coach on these sectors: JFK-DXB (A380), DXB-COK (772), TRV-DXB (A332), DXB-JFK (773).
With so many mixed opinions, I was wondering what your thoughts on Emirates economy class service is!

What I like most about EK is their ICE entertainment system. Time really flies away with it... The service is professional but nothing extraordinary. I also enjoy seeing a variety of nationalities working as a cabin crew on board. Plus you will get to experience the A 380

Quoting CO7e7 (Reply 9): Interesting.... why do you predict that? I'm really curious. Is it the A380 vs. 773?
I have experienced this route on several occasions and it seems that EK crew take pride on the A380 and this makes service enjoyable and of a very high standard.
Also, there is a far roomier feel on the A380. If you are in the middle of a row on 77W you feel very cramped and restricted. On the A380, the atmosphere is completely different and people move around so much that it seems easier to move around yourself, no matter where you are seated.

Thanks for all the info! I'm hoping that the return 77W will have the updated seats and entertainment system, but I'm not sure if EK gives any favor to the JFK flights regarding which 77Ws they send... We shall see!

I have to agree. Their ICE is fantastic.
I did MAN-DXB-BKK-DXB-MAN and i found it weird that the captain on all four legs of the trip was Australian. The flight crew coming back were mostly Welsh aswel which i thought was strange. But it is nice to see.
I thought they were excellent, the entertainment as i already mentioned was great, along with the food/drinks and the service was very good. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they always had a smile! I would definately fly with them again. Enjoy your trip.
