EK 777?

Mon Mar 15, 2004 12:05 am

I´m going to fly on Emirates from CAI to DXB, which should operated by B777. Has anyone tried this EK route/aircraft? How about EK service otherwise, is it as good as they let you believe?

Hey Fido73

Yeah, I've flown on their CAI-DXB-CAI route twice, experiencing their 773,772 and A332. You'll probably fly on their 772. The flight was excellent. The serivce and IFE was really good for the flights. It is scheduled to take 3hr30min, but only takes 2hr50min.

I usually fly with Egyptair, because the seats are comfortable and the legroom is better than EK, also their airfares are cheaper and I am with MS's frequent flyer program (adding the miles).

Anyway I am sure you'll have a good time flying EK, they deserve they hype they get!

Yes I have flown this route in 2002.

On the DXB-CAI leg the flight was downgraded to an A332. On the way back it was a 772. When I flew the route the flight was well over 4 hours.

EK are a good airline, I was satisfied with their service.

You weren't downgraded. EK operate daily 777 flights (EK926) and a weekly A332 flight (EK928) too. You probably flew on their second flight
