Will be travelling to the UAE from Brussels next week. Abu Dhabi or Dubai makes no difference, but I have to fly coach (economy). What would you advise me from a comfort point of view? (seat comfort, meals, service on board, IFE, airport facilities). I limit my choices to those airlines on which I can accumulate more mileage.
1/ LH over FRA or MUC, further to the UAE on B744 (DXB), A333 (AUH) or A346 (AUH). Dayflights.
2/ BA over LHR, further to UAE on B772, same equipment for DXB and AUH. Dayflights.
3/ EY (Etihad) direct flights into AUH from BRU, on A332, outbound nightflight, inbound dayflight.
I am Frequent Traveller on LH and Club Silver on BA.
Any chances for free upgrades?
Your advise? I'd avoid the LH744 because of no up-to-date IFE, but never travelled on LH A333/346 neither did I on EY.
