Hello, and welcome to this new Flight Report, today I'm reporting the FRA-DXB leg of my TLS-CBR trip. Here is the routing :
Our flight from TLS to FRA was quite late, ½ hour late actually. I was the last to board this magnificent A380.
My seat for the next 6 hours : sadly, I couldn't select a window seat… This seat is miles away from the one on the 777 : direct aisle access for every seat in a 1-2-1 configuration : much better for an airline named 5th best in the world by Scamtrax. I really don't like the bling-bling effect, though i've got to admit after flying with lots of world class airlines, Emirates is one of the best (before I started writing FRs, I'd flown SQ's fantastic 777 business class, BA's horrendous 777 business class, and QR's fantastic Qsuite).
I found headphones, a pillow and a blanket on my seat.
The footbox (which isn't too narrow btw) :
ICE IFE :
I chose orange juice as my pre-departure drink :
But if you're thirsty, you can always chose a drink from the mini-bar, which isn't refrigerated (a total waste IMHO).
Safety video is screened, and we push back :
It's a good time to show you the menus (sorry for the quality of the photos) :
Oh, and I almost forgot to show the headphones :
Time to eat dinner ! The inexperienced flight-reporter that I was at the time forgot to take a photo of the (fantastic) Traditional Arabic Mezze, and only took a photo of the Beef Tenderloin with Peppercorn sauce after he started eating it. He did, though remember to take a photo of the Apple Cheesecake and Fine Luxury Chocolates.
Now, it's time to head to the lavatories : clean, and very bling-bling.
When I returned, I found my bed made, so I decided to go to sleep. the blanket was very comfy, and I slept a good 3 hours I think.
I then decided to watch a movie, and then I turned on the tail camera : what a beautiful view !
The inexperienced flight-reporter that I was also didn't take a photo of the breakfast, which was good. We then touched down with a smooth landing and I said goodbye to my seat.
Another very good flight with EK. Nice cabin, professional crew, fantastic ICE system and good food. It's a shame I didn't take a pic of the bar though, which was fantastic.
