My most recent experience , only last week to DXB was absolutely perfect , as we entered the CCR and took seats on the terrace area we were approached immediately by a member of staff who was friendly and smiling , who got us 2 coffees and offered the breakfast menu , we replied that we would eat in the dining area later , and then she also came back after our breakfast which was very nice with 2 glasses of champagne for us , I did think the service levels in there were just right .
On boarding , it was strictly enforced with F only being called / allowed , met at door , and welcomed by name and explained that she couldn’t leave the door as two other F passengers were being escorted , but a great warm and smiling welcome ( and being grown up I do now know that 2K is near the front !! ) again a warm smiling welcome and interaction throughout the flight with the F cabin crew , great food ( perfect beef dish ) and drinks and service , even got a visit from the CSD / person in charge .
Arrived a tiny bit early , everyone else held back until F cabin cleared and bags waiting on trolley once through immigration .
This flight was excellent , my others even in CE and CW and F previously have all been consistently good , the only thing Hi de hi about it was the price darling , £463 as I was using a Amex companion voucher !! Perhaps the silver card on my hand baggage means they’re extra nice to me ?? 🙂
Looking forward to my flight back .
