Hello Again

Thats my trip report of an Emirates flight from Warsaw to Dubai. I decided to catch the connection at Warsaw because the flights were full for all over the Europe! So I spent a night at the city of Warsaw.

Then a flight attendant earned me and welcomed in Portuguese! He was fantastic! Changed my seat from 23D to 31B, one of the only near the window seat. Then the captain announced due to ATC problems the flight was delayed

    Great plane spotting, and congratulations for snapping the LOT 787 being celebrated by two fire trucks !
    The LOT E-170 livery seems to be Planes rather than Cars :)
    Thanks for sharing !

    Thanks for sharing this report. Emirates seems , FR after FR, to do a good job on a very regular basis. It has become a leading airline not only for that enables it to grow at a very fast pace but thanks to good crews and service. Your reports illustrates it clearly.

    Thanks for this FR.

    We rarely get to see reports on the older EK planes such as this 777.

    The service however still remains good no matter what the cabin is like.
