i am writing my trip report about my last summer vacation ......
i remeber it waz 26 june , 5:30 , i couldn't sleep that night ... i was sooo excited .....i woke up and left to dubai airport , when i arrived they were still constructing the new terminal ( which they now opened .... its AMAZING ) , it was an EMIRATES flight
EK 001 to LONDON HEATHROW .......
at the counter , the woman was sooo friendly , she knew it was my first time to travel alone (i am 16) , so i begged her for an upgrade , she appologized and said the flight was 100% full ...and promised to upgrade me
in london ..... but she told me to use the firast class lounge ( it waz EXCELLENT ) , later then , iwas on the plane , it was SOOOOO FULL ! the airplane was a B777/200 that flight was really good,food was
v. good ,service was good , entertianment , was very good ,i would rate it 85% if it wasn't for the crowded flight and that annoying baby , who cried for 7 hours striaght !!! we landed at 12:30 - terminal 3 , then i had to meet my brother on the duty free .....i met him an hour later then we had to wait 4 hours for our next flight ..
united ailines to washington dulles ........
the person on the counter was sooo rude .......i wanted to punch soo badly , then in the gate when i asked for the upgrade the woman in dubai airport had promised , they started screaming at us ( it was like we asked for gold !) and then told us , if we r not happy , they would be happy to transfer us on delta .......we were on the plane , the seating was 2-5-2 , VERY annoying !
i was in the middle , they had no PTV's ( my friend told me that u would expect that on all american airlines ),
the movies were old , food was HORRIBLE ......service was bad, in the middle of the flight , i felt sick , and the
FA told me the best solution is to sleep !!! 7 hours passed then the captin announced , due to strong winds , we will be late for another 1 hour and 15 min. so total 8 hours and 30 min., i would give it 55% so we arrived at dulles , the airport is plain and simple but huge ! i couldn't open my eyes , i had to sleep , i was hungry , but felt sick and wanted to throw up .....the woman at the boarding gate was very kind ....but she didn't know where was dubai ...and had never heard of
EMIRATES AIRLINES , very surprinsing huh ?!? i thought ALL AMERICANS were educated , and they were the best nation in the world ! so we waited for 2 hours , then we took the flight , agian United airlines to orlando airport , B737 , the seating was 3-3 , the plane was half full , so i slept on 3 chairs and so did my brother , no entertianment , no refreshements , maybe because i was sleeping , anyway , there was bad turbulance , so i woke up , the plane was shaking so badly ......arrived after 2h and ahalf . 70 %
oralndos airport was really nice . anyways , on the return ( after3 weeks) we were at the airport , , the plane was supposed to takeoff at 12:30 in the after noon , but then we took off at 5:00 PM , didn't expect it , so we arrived at washington dulles and took the other flight to paris , that flight was 7 hours , they finally had PTV's and food was good , FA were nice , anyways , paris CHG airport was BAD !! it is soo old ,
after staying in paris for a week , went took EMIRATES
A330/200 and we were upgraded ! finnally ! that flight was soo good , i didn't want it to end ....everything ws excellent , food , service , movies ........90 % ......
and that was the end of it ....so tell me what do u think ..

Hello Ahmed

nice trip report! But I have got a question: Why didn't you fly DXB to EWR with Malaysia Airlines? They fly that route nonstop in 15 h. What reason does it have - to expensive? I flew with them from FRA to SYD and back from CNS to FRA both via KUL. The service was great! Maybe I will write a trip report. By the way, I am also 16.

the reason behind me flying EMIRATES to london heathrow is because i HAD to MEET with my brother ....as i said , i met him in terminal 3 , otherwise , i would have flown maylsia from dubai to newyork for 15 hours , .............besides , i also wanted to fly united (i wanted to try out any american airline ) and ofcourse , it turned out to be crap and probably the worst airline i have ever flown ......
