This is my video trip log on an Enirates Airbus330 Business Class flight from CCU/Calcutta to Dubai. A five hour flight which takes off at 9am and lands in Dubai around 2ish in the afternoon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kDJQEeVy50
I have always been intrigued by the Airbus 330s. One one hand, it's said to be the identical length and the framework of an A340 yet it has only two engines. Seemed a little weird to me but I love the fact that it is so damn quiet. It misses the sheer rumble and power of sitting in a Boeing 777 but this has its own charm!
On this particular flight the aircraft had a three class config. but was flying two classes (so basically, as you'll see, the First Class was empty). Also, I was able to do a complete cabin walk thru and you'll notice the difference between the chilled out atmosphere in Business Class compared to the claustrophobic Economy section.
This video includes
- Taxi and Take Off and climb out from CCU
- A complete walk from the tail section of Economy to First Class.
- Finals into Dubai
- Look at the empty First Class Cabin
