Anyone Flown Emirates To Athens?

I just purchased my tickets to Athens at the end of the month for my honeymoon (looking forward to them greek isles!), and, unfortunately, I was not able to get a seat on Singapore Airlines which is my usual first choice. However, the upside of it seems to be that I get to fly on EK for the very first time!

A quick check on Emirates' website reveals that I'd be on a B777 from Singapore to Dubai, and then an A300-600 from Dubai to Athens, with a stopover at Lanarca, Cyprus.

Just some quick questions to anyone out there who knows: Does EK use a B777-200 or B777-300 for the leg from Singapore to Dubai? The economy class seating on EK's B777 is arranged 3-4-3, which seems to me to be too cramped for a triple-seven (ie. as opposed to the normal 3-3-3); is the seating in such a layout comfortable? Does the A300-600 have PTVs in economy?

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Don't fly EK

Yes, A300-600 has PTV's. Flown with them many times.

Seats are a bit old though.

Take a better route - fly GULF air

Hi Shabaz,

Why do you not recommend EK? I've heard such conflicting reviews of the airline that I'm quite confused.

Gulf Air did not have a flight on my preferred date of travel. Maybe another time in the future.

EK is a good airline. I've been on the A300 DXB-LCA it was an ok flight, the PTVs are quite small compared to the ones they have on the 777/330. I think your flight to ATH from DXB is nonstop and from there it continues on to malta...

Well, if you want to avoid EK, try Thai or Olympic from BKK, Gulf Air, Saudi Arabian or any other airline you can find from SIA.
