Most people love flying EK, and consider it one of the best flying experiences around.

There, that's something nice!

But KE is a great airline too (a friend who's recently flown both in Y preferred KE), and one wonders how much cheaper it had to be to fly all the way south to DXB rather than just non-stop on KE?

I flew LGW-DXB-BKK-HKG last summer and EK staff were the best i've met. The transfer is very easy although the terminal a bit short of space and places to sit down but all in all i quite enjoyed EK and would recommend them. Hope you have a good trip!

My experiences from 2006 MUC-DXB-BKK in Y class:
Great ICE on B777ER, the best IFE I have seen, and the best airline meals, pre booked sea food.
The A330 was a lot worse, old birds. Both a/c had a very tight seating, not much shoulder room, leg room ok.
DXB can be growded and rather uncomfortable, but you will survive.

Flown twice. A332 and A345 and both were great experiences. Very nice! You can read my trip report. It is all positive there.  Smile

Enjoy your flights. Transit is not so bad at DXB unless it is very short.
