After having a busy year at work, I wanted to take a break and go to the states for vacation. As I am from Dubai I had two options either Emirates or Etihad after checking the prices and planning I decided to fly Emirates to San Francisco so I booked the first trip to San Francisco and the return trip from Chicago and I booked a month ago before my trip.
At the day of the trip the Chauffeur picked me up 3 hours prior departures and it was a Mercedes Benz but i didn't take any any pics till i passed immigration due to restriction in US flights and I wanted to play it safe.
heading to concourse A by train
reaching concourse A which is a small part of terminal 3 but it looks nicer tbh
my gate but it was not opened yet
and here is first class lounge which I think it is much better the the one in terminal 3 gate B area it was bigger and it has the gates inside the lounge and also a full duty free.
prayer room inside the lounge
having a tea in the smoking lounge
after that I decided to have breakfast but i didn't want to have a full meal so I can eat in the aircraft
after breakfast I went through the gate in the lounge and security were waiting to check the bags before boarding it did not take time then I headed to the aircraft and here is a pic of the big bird
Here is my seat 1K
Arabic coffee was given in boarding
headphones which were comfortable for 16 hour flight
here is the private mini bar
I didn't take any pics during take off as I recorded in the video which you will find at the end of the report
here is the menu
after take off breakfast was serviced and I ordered scrambled eggs with sausage
tea after breakfast
after couple of hours of watching the big bang theory I went to get some snacks in the first class mini bar
approaching the north pole
the Wi Fi did not work when we were in the north pole area
after that I ordered steak sandwich which was really good
after that I decided to walk to the business class lounge, and her is a pic of the business class cabin
before lunch I had a shower and believe there is not better feeling than having a relaxing hot shower after flying for 13 hours it refreshes you completely.
a tea to make you even more relaxed
when I came back the mini bar was filled again with drinks
after that lunch was served
getting closer to San Francisco
after that we landed safely in SFO and sorry for not taking any pics during landing as I was busy taking a video, and you will find the landing in the video.
after an amazing flight which i felt it was shorter than 16 hours I went to the hotel and I was not even very tired even though I didn't not sleep during the flight.
and here is the video
hope you guys enjoyed the report
Emirates Lounge - First (Gates A)
