We have just done a short 3hr flight from Sydney to Christchurch on an Airbus A380 the first time I've been on one of these aircraft. We found it too be quite compared to other large aircraft. The seats we choose had a bulkhead behind which saved us from having anyone digging there knees into the back of our seats but didn't restrict the recline. Great airline to fly with would totally recommend emerits to any one traveling.
Only having a 2 seat row in front us, it felt less constrictive and allowed me access from my seat on both sides due to lovely lady in seat 68A. Seat recline button needed quite a lot of force to enable seat to move, others around had same issues. 17 hour flight was so much better than expected. Would book same seat again
Our first experience of the A380 did not disappoint especially as we flew first class as to birthday treat/surprise for my wife as her birthday happened during the flight. We both found the seats were very comfortable with the added privacy of closing the suite door certainly helped although we had no noise issues even though first class was quite full. Position of seat generally good although if flying first class again I would book 3e/f as our seat had the Emirates sign on the high level bulkhead slightly restrictive in cabin view though the only disappointing aspect is the if travelling with a partner the only practical option is the centre seats with design priority given to single travel passengers as you have the window seat with external view but that is our only non-positive comment
May 6 - On Mumbai/Dubai sector adjacent to lavatory with limited recliner. Dubai/San Francisco sector it was similar to being restrained in police custody. Will be difficult to recommend to family or friends. However the Emirates staff surprised me with a mini champagne and a box of chocolate cake l believe at the request of a family friend for my 75th birthday on the previous day. Hope I have better experience on my return flight. My wife was equally uncomfortable on this trip and prays for better experience on return sector from Orlando MCO to Mumbai.
I really appreciated the helpful, friendly staff providing support. I’m a special assistance passenger with mobility problems. It was the first time I have flown Emirates and the first time I’ve flown Business Class. I would certainly do both again and recommend them to others. The food, drinks and service were excellent. Thank you 🙏
Was disappointed tablet entertainment was not working & seat was stuck in slight recline and was uncomfortable,had no room when seat in front was in full recline position 🙁over all had a very uncomfortable flight my daughter spilt coffee on herself and was given little assistance and no help to clean up . 🙂hope our return flight is much better on return ,thanks Bazz ,
Seat was really good, but some passengers felt the need to gather in the space in front of it, drinking wine, talking and laughing loudly and allowing their children to carry on as well. It was disappointing that the cabin crew did not speak to them and request they return to their seats. I think it is reasonable that people can stand there quietly and stretch etc but not be disruptive for quite a long time. It was also disappointing to go to the toilet to find that the soap and tissues had run out.
Comfortable trip, much better than the first leg of my trip on the B777-300 plane. The meals were reasonable, having said that I am rather a fussy eater. Air crew always helpful. Nice to have the extra room. Hope to have a return trip in this aircraft next November. Enjoyed my flight on this aircraft, found the information on the screen helpful. Thankyou, Emily Grayson.
SEATS 23A, 22D, 22G and 23K are ALL STANDARD business class seats. I have been Manchester-Dubai-Singapore and return 11 times to now (total of 44 flights (aeroplanes) Not ONE of those flights had EXTRA leg room. All are standard size and all have a Bulk head immediately in front. I choose 23A or 25A because this bulkhead makes a small compartment and I am not 1) looking at the wing blocking the view, and 2) I am not looking down the entire aircraft. So NO extra leg room, and a decent view outside.
I am a double amputee, i lost both my legs in cambodia standing on a landminen while i was there doing voluntary work. SINCE i have been able to fly again emirates crew, and check is staff have been AMAZIN, doing everything to make my getting to the departure gate easy, and the air stewards, and sterardesses checking me regularly to make sure i was comfortable. I was very, very comfortable, and the food was really, really tasty. IM looking forward to going back to thailand next week to see my son, and his wife again.
Close.to the bulkhead seats where they put babies but they were amazingly well behaved. We were last to be served food which meant choice was limited for the last rows. Cabin crew made an effort to put that right.
The seat was terrible - along with the limited recline, there are chiller units above your head which create a loud whirring noise, which spools up for about a second, every other second, for all 7 hours of a flight back from Dubai to London.
I travelled back from Dubai and was seated near the toilets. The smell was disgusting and I felt sick for most of the flight. It is about to happen again in seat 65K. Tomorrow. Because I am a single flyer and I can't afford to pay extra for my seat, my seat is always changed when boarding. I am so fed up being treated as if I don't matter.
The seat overall is fine, plenty of room and I am 6ft 225lbs. My issue was with the traffic, the galley is right there and I did not mind the girls working during meak times. It was the disrespectful passengers that stand around in the exit area and speak loudly disturbing seated passengers. This should be curtailed by airline crew to allow only minimal time for stretching, not spending half the flight there yelling to converse. A terrible flight from DXB-LAX. Will never sit there again.
The huge advantage is not just extra leg room, but no seat in front at all, so no one to cause issues! Also, due to location, you can come and go as you wish without having to disturb anyone and there’s no need for anyone to disturb you! It’s next to a window, but you’re right on the wing so the view isn’t the best. But, comfort wins over view for me! I’ve booked this seat for my return journey too!
Good seats with room to get up & down easily. Room behind the seats to stretch. No hassle with putting your seat back as there is no one behind you. Downside is the light is always on where the hostess sat, but if you have travel eye masks its okay. We got a free travel pack from Emirates on the first leg to London, containing eye masks, socks, toothbrush and toothpaste. Quite handy.
You would think you have extra leg room but the bulky door which holds the life raft blocks your ability to spread your legs entirely. Pick 41H or 41J and 41K will be very jealous. 41A also has this problem. 41B and 41C are good!
Best flight I've ever had. Plenty of space, very comfortable seat, good window view.
What a fantastic aircraft to travel on, it's a pity about the people though. Trying to sleep with noisy passengers is not ideal but achievable when quiet. Food great, lie flat bed - amazing and entertainment unlimited. Am looking forward to return trip already.
All seats in this part of the cabin (row 41 down to 50) are super silent, which is an important factor for me. Seats 41A and 41K do not have a window, which is not marked in the V2 version map of SeatGuru. To me this would be super annoying, with the wall next to you but no chance to look out.
