RE: Emirates From A 5 Star To A 4 Star Airline

We flew Emirates Economy for the first time this December and overall, we found that they had a great product for the price we paid for our tickets.

I have posted video reviews in the other threads on this forum so that all travellers can see what I mean.

Cheers and have a blessed Christmas.
