Having arrived on VS400 I proceeded to check-in for EK3801
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801%201/EK3801010808254-1.jpg
I had expected EK to put up banners and general promote this historic day, however this was sadly lacking,

At check-in I enquired as to J class availability, basically had any seats freed up?? - appears 1 window seat had opened up, I snapped it up, sure glad I did too!

I had to visit the ticket desk and pay the difference, took about 5 minutes then headed to the dedicated check-in desk for US bound EK flights, went smoothly enough thought the agent seemed to have trouble getting to grips with me leaving JFK for Europe on the same day after such a long flight!

Got my boarding pass and a lounge invitation, still not sure why they have to write these things out, seems like a waste of paper/card to be honest!

Passport control and security was pretty easy, again First & Business have a dedicated lane to use, saves getting in line with the great unwashed.

I will say the First/Business check-in area was not that great, looks quite dated compared to the layout/offerings from say BA and VS.

The walk from security brings you to duty free

great if you want to buy stuff, but a pain if you don’t want anything, masses of people, reminds me of T3 @ Heathrow, a zoo!

Once up to the next level, departures, I took a walk along to try and get some spotting in and snap some pix of the A380. Be warned, DXB is not great for spotting, it’s hard to read reg numbers of the planes parked at the gates and there are people everywhere, the whole place in the early morning is a nightmare to navigate, hot, stuffy, you’ll be drenched in sweat before you know it. I’ve not been here long but have developed a dislike for the place already.

After a quick walk to try and get in some spotting, enough was enough, decided to hit the lounge.

http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801%201/EK3801010808146.jpg
I chose the lounge closest gate 25, this being the gate allocated for our departure.
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801%201/EK3801010808142.jpg
Upon arrival the reception agent wanted to take my lounge invite but I asked to keep as a memento of the day, no problem, she copied the details onto another and let me have the original, why copy the detail??
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801%201/EK3801010808147.jpg
By now I was hot as hell, had a nice sheen of sweat on me and had been in the same clothes for some 10 hours, thankfully the lounge had a couple of showers and 1 was free. Whilst refreshing, the shower room lacked any form of ventilation, the ceiling was covered with damp stains and you were wet as soon as you had dried off, rubbish! – That said, I did feel much better even if I was soaked in a new layer of sweat!
Luggage for the trip

Shower

I managed to find a table next to the window, grabbed a paper, OJ and coffee, relaxation at last! – The lounge had free wifi so I checked my inbox and checked the most important web site in the world, A.NET to see what was going on, I noted Roni was already at the gate. A text or 8 to MissBA319131 back in London and I headed down to the gate around about 10am ish.

There appeared to be nothing special at gate 25 for the flight, a passport & boarding pass inspection and I was through. I had been advised to show my ticket stub to the girls in the gate area to receive our gift – this was an Emirates bag with a couple of goodies, nice but quite poor compared to the gift SQ gave out on their inagural A380 flight.
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801010808250.jpg
The whole affair was quite a complete contrast to the SQ affair, I had expected EK to really promote this day, the inagural flight of their 1st A380 and the first A380 powered by the new engine alliance GP7200.

I sat near the window and managed to catch a couple of local’s who will never fly to LHR, really need to re-visit this place where I can get some good spotting in, it’s a paradise! – Anyway, I good looking chap approached, it was Roni! We had a bit of a chat, boarding for First & Business was called so we headed off, stopping for numerous pictures along the way!

Roni heading down the jetway.



Once aboard we both headed right, me row A, Roni in K.

Pretty impressed with the seat, beats the pants off the VS seat I flew in on and is better than the BA Club World seat.

I will say the side window storage bins open too easily, your arm tends to move off of the arm rest and end up on the storage bin, usually making it open!

As expected, camera’s were in abundance as everyone took pictures of the fixtures and fittings, at this point we were allowed to visit First Class, so took the opportunity to get a few shots of the showers along with the seats.

The crew served pre-departure drinks, water, OJ & Champagne - Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2003 – no guess which I took!

As per my last A380 flight, push took me by surprise, you don’t feel it, you only notice it if you happen to be looking out of the window at the time!

A short taxi out
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z287/BA319131/EK3801/EK3801010808193.jpg
and a long takeoff run wheels were up at 11:20, a small amount of applause could be head through out the cabin. The guy from Engine Alliance was behind me in 23B so I guess he was happy.

Climb seemed very slow, much slower than my SQ380 flight, so much so I did wonder if we were in fact climbing……………… thankfully we were!

Once the seat belt sign was extinguished that was it, the madness began, people all over the place, cameras out again, the rear bar area was packed, it’s a great place to hang out and much more user friendly than the VS area. I imagine it’s fantastic at night when the mood lighting is on, Roni has been commissioned to report on this on the return night flight.

The curtain divides have arrows on to show where to open

Here are a few pictures of the bar area:-

Meal service began around 1pm Dubai time, I say 1pm, it depends where you were sat on the plane, some areas had finished their meals before others had received starters.

I took the Lamb with a salad to start, both were excellent as was the chocolate tart which followed, not good for my wedding diet though!

After lunch Roni & I did a bit of exploring including heading down to the lower deck. The crew had pulled a retractable barrier to stop economy passengers trying to visit us, there were many on the stairs as we headed down asking how life was upstairs.

The lower deck as you may know is all economy, mostly a 3-4-3 layout. The seat pitch appears to be quite generous, say 33 or 34, however, if travelling in this class, try and snag the forward section which ends at row 50, that’s the most private/smallest cabin.

Last orders were taken at 21:00 Dubai time and served shortly after, well some were. Roni came back, his meal was over and done with, I’d yet to have the table set up!

Took the chicken this time, followed by the cheese plate, all went well except the wine never managed to arrive, nor did the port to go with the cheese, the error was realised but by then everything was pretty much eaten.

Wheels touched down at 16:30, not the smoothest landing ever though, I think he planted the plane rather than kissed the runway!

Total flight time was 13:10 on the dot!

the cockpit announced that the fire service would be giving the plane a water cannon welcome, it was noting to worry about.

Here is a picture of the event, I was lucky to catch it, such a short blast of water, don’t actually think it touched the plane.

Immigration was pretty heavy for this time of day, Roni has a US passport, he was through and outside having a smoke even before I got to a counter!

Once through we met up again, headed up to departures, then outside into the sun, lovely evening there, would have been nice to spend a night on the town, but no, return trip’s awaited us, me to LHR via ZRH, Roni back to DXB on A6-EDA.

We both headed to our respective check-in’s before meeting up to go and hit our lounges.

Thanks for some good company and conversation Roni, look forward to meeting up again.

The crew were excellent on this flight, nothing was too much trouble.

I don’t remember all the name’s (sorry) but Toby and Bec, many thanks, you were excellent!

Summing Up:

Whilst the service was patch at times, drinks not appearing with meals or second courses taking a long time to follow, this was all down to lack of time getting to know the aircraft, they got it Tuesday night, 3 days later they had the first flight, the small problems are quite forgivable at this point as they get to know the aircraft.

F & J cabins are excellent, layout is great, seats superb. Economy is pretty good but I’d not want to do this particular flight in economy, several passengers in the immigration queue who had flown in economy said they would not take the same route again, preferring to take a 1 stop flight instead.

Many of you will know this is my second A380 flight, both on inagurals. The A380 is a superb plane on which to fly, it is roomy and depending on customer fit out, a comfortable aircraft too. I might be wrong, but the SQ RR machine seemed quieter than this EA powered one, anybody else travelled on both and can advise their opinion?

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed the trip so far, next part, LX15 & LX to follow!

Kind Regards

Mark

Thanks very much for the report.

I really don't like that fake wood panelling that seems to proliferate in EK's premium cabins. Also, can't really see the point of the common areas - would prefer to enjoy the seat/IFE than try to make conversation with other pax. That's just me, though..

On the plus side, the A380 looks great in EK livery, and the food and IFE looked excellent.

Cheers

Absolutely fantastic report!!!

Reading this report suddenly brought back the good memories! But then i realised, it was only two days ago! haha. Going to New York and coming back in a day, just makes it seem like such a long time ago! I'm actually feeling a little light-headed this morning hehe

It turned out that i actually did pre-select seat 23 A when i made the booking for the return leg. So i sat in your seat. While it added to the privacy factor, i missed all the action up front in the main Business cabin.


Thanks for sharing this! Mine is still in the works. Will be up and running soon !!

Excellent report Mark! Just fabulous , I would love to fly their premium products Very good pictures!

Though I must say why were the screens saying EK801 when the number was EK3801? Maybe the IFE is programmed for a 3digit flight number.

Ek surely has a good product to offer on the A380.

However, I must add that my Inaugural SQ B77W from BOM, where it was just an equipment switch, had more celebrations than this historic event. Too bad EK did not go ahead that extra mile.


Looking forward for more TR's!

Quoting BA319-131 (Thread starter):
Once up to the next level, departures, I took a walk along to try and get some spotting in and snap some pix of the A380. Be warned, DXB is not great for spotting, it’s hard to read reg numbers of the planes parked at the gates and there are people everywhere, the whole place in the early morning is a nightmare to navigate, hot, stuffy, you’ll be drenched in sweat before you know it. I’ve not been here long but have developed a dislike for the place already.

Exactly my thoughts, DXB is pretty bad not just for enthusiasts.

Pretty impressed with the seat, beats the pants off the VS seat I flew in on and is better than the BA Club World seat.

Looks really good in general - but I'm not a fan of that particular type of wood.

Quoting BA319-131 (Thread starter):
Toilet

The same here...

Quoting BA319-131 (Thread starter):
The lower deck as you may know is all economy, mostly a 3-4-3 layout. The seat pitch appears to be quite generous, say 33 or 34, however, if travelling in this class, try and snag the forward section which ends at row 50, that’s the most private/smallest cabin.

Shoulder space seems to be more than enough.

Quoting BA319-131 (Thread starter):
The crew were having issues with the galley equipment, several carts appeared to be abandoned through out the plane

Not the best decision - what about sudden turbulences?


Anyway, I was looking forward to this report, it was a great read.

Mark,
Thanks so much for the wonderful TR and sharing another very special trip for you!

It's a shame EK didn't do more for it's for passenger A380 flight. I remember what SQ did for their inagural flight to SYD! That was lovely in itself. They were very generous with the goodie bags.
By chance did EK hand out a A380 model at least for the inagural flight?

It looks like EK does have a nice amentity kit. One of the best out there.

I agree. I think it look's cheap and tacky and there seem's to be so much of it!

I really like the "Personal Minibar" you get in the Premium classe's though, and I thought J class looked very comfortable.

The shower's looked nice too. - Did you speak to anyone who got to take a shower?

Quoting BA319-131 (Thread starter):
There appeared to be nothing special at gate 25 for the flight, a passport & boarding pass inspection and I was through. I had been advised to show my ticket stub to the girls in the gate area to receive our gift -- this was an Emirates bag with a couple of goodies, nice but quite poor compared to the gift SQ gave out on their inagural A380 flight.

I cannot really understand this lack of enthusiasm for such a big and important event. I have never flown EK or SQ but after reading about their inaugural flights on the A380 I think SQ made a bigger fuss that obviously hit the media all over the globe. I think EK missed some cheap publicity here.

Nice to compare the attention to details,

There are some aspects that I do not fully like on this plane. The massive use of this plastic-wood decorations they have and golden garments; too baroque for me. I am more of: less is better.

Looks like EK have succeeded in creating a novel inflight experience, unlike the previous TRs I have read on A380 flights. Especially the aforementioned shower and the bar service. You being the expert, what do you think?
