For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help.
I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated...
We flew economy. These days, there no longer seems to be any attempt by Emirates to provide a superior flight experience to the budget airlines. Noisy families were crammed into the cabin, many bringing with them more hand-luggage than could be fitted into lockers, some passengers too wide to fit into the seats! There was nothing specifically wrong with the flight, the crew were friendly & professional and the in-flight entertainment provided by Emirates is always really good. But flying economy with Emirates nowadays feels much like flying with the cheaper competition.
