My flight tonight is departing from A gates. Emirates unfortunately do not have a separate train to A get to gates for premium passengers. 


Dubai airport is large and has a wide variety of restaurants and shops.

I was seated in 26B which is a window seats (further from the window). This was the last row on the airplane and was the only seat left because the flight was last minute booking. I would not recommend this seat because during the flight the noise from the bar behind can be very bothersome. I would recommend seats with 'A' because they are closer to the window and offer a lot more privacy


The seat offers a good amount of legroom

The seat offers a mini bar which is something quite rare in most business class seats.

The flight has been delayed by about an hour because they had to offload an unwell passenger.

Conclusion

Emirates offers a really good business class product on the A380 and it is a real upgrade from the 777s. I would recommend this product.
