“Another excellent flight. Highly recommended.”
Review of Emirates


Reviewed 21 September 2021

The second leg of my journey from London to Seychelles. Transit in DXB was straightforward, just being required to show one's negative PCR test result. I have never seen the DXB airport complex so empty at night! The boarding process was as normal, no requirement to show anything more than one's passport and boarding pass.
The flight itself was excellent. Passengers well spaced out. In flight service and quality of food was excellent and, despite all the masks, the cabin crew were as friendly and helpful as always. Highly recommended.

After 18 months of not flying, it was good to be back on board with Emirates. With all the Covid-19 travel requirements at my final destination (Seychelles), the various e-mails from Emirates in the run up to the departure process were excellent guides as to requirements, both in transit in DXB and for entering Seychelles. Check-in was only a little longer than previously, then through to the almost empty lounge where there were drinks and food available - no newspapers sadly!
The flight itself was excellent, good food and excellent personal service, all following strictly the various Covid-19 requirements. Passengers were well spaced out. The flight itself was excellent as was the transit processing. Brilliant - thank you again, Emirates for a great flight. Highly recommended.

Overall the flight was no better than any other business class
i was with someone and we were separated by a partition that could not be lowered
The problem came with the lack of communication. Apparently they took off late (they lied saying the aircraft was being cleaned) because they could not locate everyone's luggage.
Upon arrival all was revealed and told our luggage were located and will be on the following flight (next day) and be delivered at our place by Sunday morning
We insisted to see a manager at the airport and asked to have luggage delivered on Saturday night once they tagged it (they assured us it would be done)
Saturday night: NO LUGGAGE
Sunday morning: NO LUGGAGE
Sunday afternoon: NO LUGGAGE

Make sure they don't misplace your luggage or it might take a while to wear something!

The service was consistently good but the equipment was disappointing. Business Class on the 777 does not compare to the A380 which had previously been in service on this route. I asked the crew and they said they would be bringing back the A380 soon. The seats are narrow and are not lie flat. Not good for tall people as the foot rest doesn't extend far enough. The ICE entertainment system is quirky and my headphones did not work. Food is better in the lounge. So have you're meal before boarding.

Excellent service all the way. Smooth check in. Emirates lounge @ Manchester was closed, so we were asked to use escape lounge. Priority security and check in. In flight service very nice and attentive. EK18 and EK516. Well presented and served lunch. Spacious seats. Excellent inlfight entertainment
