AMS-DXB-BKK With EK In J

Mon Apr 11, 2016 8:31 pm

Hi all,

I’m not much for writing trip reports. I rather read/watch others. As I have become a frequent flyer with EK on above mentioned route in both Y and J few images have been taken. Actually only from J to be honest, so I thought why not share some of them with you all instead. They are from several different flights and I will try to advise which. All on the A380 though.

But lets kick off with some images from AMS terminals during my departure 24th of March.

CX awaiting departure at concourse G;

So anyway, that was a few images on how a day at AMS can look like from airside.

Lets move on to some cabin shots shall we!?
My December (2015) AMS-DXB on EK148, A6-EEX;

My December (2015) DXB-BKK on EK384, no reg on this one. As this is a sleep flight the cabin is dimmed pretty quicly after reaching cruise;

Flying east not that far from BKK;

The following could be from any BKK-DXB flight as I always fly on EK375 A6-EEE, A6-EOA and one more I don’t have reg for;
Concourse E where EK has a designated gate, E4;

DXB-AMS is not much to see to be honest as after meal service cabin is dimmed and so am I.
I did fly EK149 on the 77W A6-EBD before it was changed to a A380 as well. So AMS has 2 daily A380 departures since MH ceased all operations to AMS. MH now has a code share agreement with EK.

Few images from DXB lounge concourse A when arriving on EK148, A6-EDU now in March;

So there, now I have shared you some images taken from some of my flights.
I think EK has a good product which is also why I stick with them for my AMS-DXB-BKK runs. I like focus on details, and one being that they study your last name before approaching you. During one EK flight DXB-BKK on EK384 the cabin manager came up to me to ask if everything was ok with me. I was very tired and a bit grumpy. I told her that I was inbound AMS-DXB and did not sleep much and I had first worked all day. She confirmed that I looked tired and asked if she could make my bed while I went to wash off. I did and had a drink while I was back there anyway. Got back to my seat 23K and my bed was made and window shades down. Those are things that makes me chose EK each time. There are several options to get to BKK from AMS too. Direct AMS-BKK with Eva air for example. Or with KLM. None which attracts me at all to be honest.
Next flight coming up soon and this will be with EK again.

Cheers everyone!

Hi Sudden!

Thanks for sharing your photos. It is good seeing all the different liveries and tails at AMS. I'd like to see Iran Air touch down in PER one day.  

Nice shot of downtown Dubai on departure for BKK. I've tried to get some shots in the past but it was so hazy that even Photoshop couldn't help.  

Regards,
Weary

Thanks.
Was really hazy this morning as well so image quality suffered from trying to get rid of the haze.

Hi, the reg was A6-EDI.

I find http://www.libhomeradar.org/ to be quite helpful in finding regs of my past flights
