For people that have flown the EK Suites, how do you feel about each of these points? Did you enjoy the experience overall, and were you happy with the design of the suites?
|Quoting SOBHI51 (Reply 1):|
Yes i did fly EK suites and you may have some points there
A) The mini bar is useless as all drinks are warm,so if you need a drink you still ask the F/E for ice
B) There is no space to put ant hand luggage as they do not have racks.
You still feel that the suite is large even after you close the door.
The showers on the A380 is a gimmick but a good one.
I did not find the gold to be overwhelming but the vanity mirror yes.
Now speaking about gold i see that your user name is Stargold??

I get what you mean! It's for this reason that I will probably never fly Emirates if I have the choice! It's as if Emirates are trying to make their suites look like the inside oh a badly decorated Bentley or Rolls Royce instead of an airplane. I much prefer the interior that Swiss are going to introduce, or the suites that QF have on their A380's. Also I sort of have a dislike towards Dubai, it all seems fake to me, however I have never been so maybe I'm wrong.
|Quoting B742 (Reply 3):|
I agree with some of the above points; I find the whole Gold/Wood effect a bit over-powering.
I don't think Emirates has the best on-board product in both F or J compared to some leading-standard airlines, I do think they've done a good job in Economy however.
However I think the suites idea is a good idea, SQ however have a better version of it. Really looking forward to LX's and EY's new F Cabin Suites.

Obviously you've formed your opinion from photos on the web but if you did have the opportunity to fly in them, you'll will change your mind even before the plane takes off.
I'm sorry but this thread is ridiculous. I've flown on the suites on a A340 and let me tell you, when that plane lands, you would be happy to stay on the plane.
The seats are fantastic, loads of room and you can sleep very well on them.
