Emirates 777 DXB - MNL 9 hrs 05 mins

Layout was 2 - 2 - 2 and were something resembling recliners which I could lay completely flat in and was given a full size blanket and pillow. Fed very well...had a tv that was on an adjustable arm showing 6 different movies at a time. Strangest thing was a sheik sitting near me smoking a full-sized "hooka" (one of those 2 foot tall water bongs that sits on the floor and has a pipe attached) That was strange...

What is rare about the Emirites 777 flight?

Let me rephrase if I was confusing....

I am looking for experiences on F service from airlines that are either defunct, mostly regional, .... etc. I don't mean a rare experience for the traveller. I mean a rare flight because it was short lived (EA's MIA-LGW) or beyond the scope of their typical service (HP's 747's).

Ah I totally misunderstood your point. I thought you were getting at it being rare for the passenger to get to fly on a long range flight in F Class. Oops  Smile

PE flew 747's from EWR to LGW. First class was only in the bubble. I think there were 16 seats but not sure. Leather. Food service was included but not extravagent. In flight movies on overhead screen. Pretty much a domestic first class product. It was primarily used by staff rather than paying passengers so everytime I flew PE on the 747's we were upstairs with no one but staff.
