Emirates sounds familiar
Emirates is the national luxury airline of Dubai, which is home to the most luxury-loving population of the entire world. With most of the people of Dubai concentrated in public and private parties, upscale malls, and the beaches, it is not surprising that the national airline is an epitome of luxury! The Emirates web check-in facility gives those who seek luxury a plethora of options to choose from. But, do not fret. Even if you are a last-minute booking, and did not have time to do a web check-in. The staff is amazing and will guide you towards the path of your luxury and grandeur.
The expectations of the luxury seekers
What exactly do the “luxury seekers” seek? Is it plush seats with extra legroom? Or travelling in business class? No. they need their time on air to feel like an ongoing party always. For those who have been working away, their weight wants to relax for those precious few hours before they touch down and must start working away. There aren’t a lot of airlines that can provide these amenities to the travellers. Emirates is just one of the rare species of airlines.
Let us behold the famed Emirates
Did we mention the amenities you get to choose from in the Emirates web check-in? Well, do you want to know what exactly those amenities are? This is for sure that the facilities given by the Emirates far outshine your usual private jet, both in luxury and distance. Let us give you an exotic glimpse of the Emirates Airline’s A-380 Jets!
Economy Class and Business Class
Even the Economy class seats have futuristic television screens and plush and reclining seats! Let us now see the luxurious business class cabins. Each seat can be completely reclined, with feather pillows for added comfort. The leg support given is fantastic too! The cabinet attached to your seat allows you to charge your laptop and work on it while on air. You can also keep your daily use medicines in the cabinet. Drinks are already loaded in your bedside compartment!
The First-Class Suit feels…
Now, if you are a complete sucker for luxury, you will have to consider flying first class. Getting your personal cabin and bed is the least of the facilities you get! With accents of wood and gold highlighting the entire cabin, the basket of orchids ever presents adds a certain exoticness to it. Shut yourself inside your suite and turn on the individual lamps and lights given to you! A small bar is at your disposal, which is great if you are too lazy! We will get to that later. The LED lit vanity mirror gives you the chance to quickly touch up your make up or put any stray locks in place before touch down. When you feel drowsy, ask the crew, and they will turn your seat into a bed, with soft mattress, pillows and sheets in place. A goodie basket full of exotic chocolates and candies is at your disposal. You will also find a set of toiletries in the mirror compartment. There is enough space for your carry-on luggage, and the charging cables come handy when your phone or laptop is about to die. A writing kit for the writers has also been provided for you in case you want to document anything! The small touchscreen controller near your armrest helps you control the television which is quite far away from the seat.
1. The food and Drink
The food is by far the best aeroplane food you would have ever had! The complete á-la-carté offered by the Emirates Airline is the best and has a wide variety of dishes. In fact, you can order anything, and the crew will serve it to you! It feels like dining in a five-star restaurant! The most important thing is to time your meal here. You should not order too little or too much, and you should order at the correct time. The beginning of a two-hour flight is perfect for ordering. You will get it in a while, and till then the snacks basket will fill you up! Extra olive oil as well as soy sauce, along with vinegar is served in packaged glass vials. A dollop of butter also accompanies your dish.
2. The on-Board Bar
Yes, you read correctly. Emirates has an onboard bar obviously! The bar is a perfect place for passengers to leave the solitude of their suites and mix up with the others. People come from business class too to avail the facilities of the onboard bar. Grab some tasty canapés and cocktails while you talk about business or philosophy. Titbits like muffins and burgers can also be ordered here!
3. A Shower on Air…
The most special thing about the Emirates is that it makes you feel clean after the end of a long journey. It has two shower cabins, which are huge with state of the art fittings, for its first-class passengers. With warm fresh towels, hot water, and imported soaps, shampoos and conditioners stored in fancy vials, the showers here are nothing other than Nirvana.
4. Limousine services
The first-class passengers, as well as the business class passengers, have the chauffeuring services made available to them in a limousine. You are eligible for this complimentary service if you are either a first-class passenger or a business class passenger. So, if you are not either, get the Emirates web check-in done and upgrade your ticket! The chauffeur services will drop you off at the airport as well as pick you up from the airport.
5. Lounge Access for the Elite
Since you are a first-class passenger, or about to be after the upgrade, you will get first class lounge access of the Emirates in the airports in Dubai as well as in the rest of the world. The lounges are pretty amazing and cater to your every need.
