RE: Mahan Air First Class Experience A340-300 DXB-IKA

Excellent trip report once again! It's a really interesting insight into an airline we don't see much of around here. It looks like top notch service you received, and those ex-Lufthansa seats look super. Thanks for sharing Sam!

Hi there, First of all just want to say sorry about your foot. That's a real bummer to have that happen on your holiday, but it sounds like the business class flight made up for the misery haha.

Good trip report. So nice to hear that the Tasman crew was good - It's a lottery with Emirates sometimes. Those newer First class suites look very nice on the 777-200ER as on the A380. Which is your preferred cabin (excluding the showers on the A380)? Does it feel more personal without the two seats...
