I have no loyalty to Emirates at all, but on another thread, relating to standards generally on ME carriers, I posted a brief note on my experience of flying 4 F sectors with them last week. I am very hard to please, but, apart from some minor niggles, I really find it hard to fault what they do.
The overall experience was outstanding, albeit I did not have so spend much time in the main concourse areas of DXB which are, in the nicest sense, a bit of a chore.
If, overall, you are attracted by the equation of “what you get for what you pay”, it is a remarkably good package.
Having retired, I now spend a lot of time helping start-ups, and they pay for my travel.
So, if it all stacks up properly for a particular trip, I would be happy to fly EK F; it leaves a good impression, at least in F
