Emirates Airlines Reviews
Humans are not capable of growing their own wings, unfortunately. So as an alternative, we have to rely on technology and machinery to create our own vessel to soar through the skies. How hard would our lives be if airplanes didn’t exist? Transportation is power, travelling is an essential part of human life.
Airline industries all over the world provide the greatest service there is for transportation. One great example is Emirates Airlines.

What people are saying
Being a 4-star airline speaks for itself. Past passengers were very happy flying with Emirates, according to most Emirates reviews, every expectation was met. There was even one passenger who wrote, “it is a mystery why Emirates is not rated with 5 stars.” So it means that there’s still a lot of room for improvement and innovation. Who knows, probably sooner or later, Emirates will be ranked as a 5-star airline.
Now, going back to the customer reviews, many passengers were very happy with the comfortable seats. The flight attendants were kind and polite. Passengers were delighted with features like the fast wifi and amazing food. The best thing about these reviews is that Emirates manages to gain loyal customers who promote their great service to family and friends.
Emirates website is pretty standard and easy to access. Passengers can check in online, they can also check their flight status. One good feature about the website is their page for altering booked flights. Passengers can manage their flight status, like change their date, pick their seat, book hotels or car rentals, and anything else to do with the flight. Their website has a page for special offers, click on it and a daily discounted offer appears, so people looking for value can find it with a little luck. Each flight listed, shows a picture of the destination, in-flight facilities and other features.
Emirates’ customer service functions all day and night, their phone lines are divided according to passenger concern. There is a designated number for flights, another for hotel booking, car hire/rentals and lastly a number for queries about travel insurance.

Emirates offers three classes, First class, Business class, and Economy class.
To start with the best one, the first class truly has amazing features. The best one is probably the seating arrangements, or should I say, room arrangements. That’s right instead of connected seats, first class has small rooms for each passenger to enjoy their privacy. Simply go inside your room, slide the door shut and enjoy your solitude in the air. The room includes your bed/seat and a table for work or play. Each seat can be converted to a bed for a peaceful slumber. Oh by the way, each room has their own mini bar that can be accessed by pressing a button.
Besides the room feature for each seat, business class is similar to first class. A convertible seat, a mini bar, space for work, you will surely reach your destination refreshed.
This class offers spacious room and an in-seat power supply for your laptop or other devices. You can surf the internet, write an email, or update your blog while flying. Each passenger can also adjust the ambient lighting to their liking.
Foods and Beverage
No matter if you are flying first class, business class, or economy class, you are surely in for a treat. Emirates Airlines serves exquisite and delicious meals for their passengers. For first class, passengers can enjoy meals from around the world. In business class, the food options are regionally inspired and for the most part, cooked to perfection. Economy class also offers regionally inspired meals like Lamb Brochette with Arabic Spices or Grilled Chicken Breast with Caramelised Plums. Pretty sure that your appetite is ignited just by reading the menu.
Meals are even served on fancy flatware like royal doulton fine bone china with exclusive Robert Welch cutlery, this enhances the overall aesthetic of the meal.
For their beverages, passengers are satisfied by world-class wines and cocktails. The wine is carefully chosen to compliment the gourmet cuisine. Kids can enjoy tasty snacks and fun drinks for their delight.
In flight technology
For entertainment, Emirates provides the Ice digital widescreen which includes over 2,000 channels for movies, tv series, sports, and music. So each passenger has a wide selection of in flight entertainment.
Emirates has their own baggage crew who help you as soon as you step out of your car, right up until you check in and reach your seat.
To fully enjoy your trip without any hassle, Emirates offers chauffeur driving services. This service is available to first and business class passengers. The driver will pick you up at home and take you to the airport in style. The service works both ways, so once you land you can have a chauffeur take you to your hotel, home or wherever it is that you need to be.
That’s pretty much it, but, what more can you ask for? Each feature and service truly aims to gain customer appreciation.
