China southern from Bangkok to Shanghai.
Shanghai to Dubai then Dubai to Man.
I flew three EA powered and one RR. The RR plane seemed slightly less powerful on takeoff but I was taking extra note so could just be me being over sensitive.
The whole experience on EK was amazing. Dubai has been built around having A380’s so I would think they would like to carry on buying the plane. However my boss who flew from Glasgow flew in the EK 777 said there was more room in Business class on the 777 then the A380.
Some 777s have the new business class. I've been in the A380 J and the new J in the 777-300/ER. The 777 feels more spacious because it doesn't have the surrounding cabinets and walls. The new J seat on the 777 is also a bit softer too.
But the A380 is much quieter and also has the bar on board.
Yes the bar, that was good. I can recommend the Port and the red wine.
