I had a previous connecting flight from Houston to Dubai on the A380 and now I am flying the Boeing 777-300ER to Amman. To be honest, overall I think the A380 would be better in almost all aspects of both planes. I was seated pretty close to the back (42K), and seats felt a bit tighter than on the A380. The 3-4-3 configuration was on both planes but it felt way more spacious and better on the A380. It's just cramped with a fourth seat in the middle. Other than that, food as good and the cleanliness of the aircraft was excellent, as well as the flight attendants. Legroom was good, not bad. The only main issue on the B777-300ER planes would be seat width and possibly legroom.
I am usually a frequent flyer with Air India but due to an emergency had to take a flight with emirates. Despite all they negative feedback AI receives from people I'd say that their economy class is 10X more comfortable than emirates on the 777-300ER. Due to the fact that emirates have a 3-4-3 o 10 abreast seating.
Fantastic crew, food great and entertainment on the ICE system the best!!.
Seat is relatively ok, not too close to the toilets so relatively quiet. The seat itself is rather firm and after a few hours I started to get some minor aches and pains but nothing too severe. Legroom is sufficient for someone of average height however with 10 seats abreast on this aircraft the seats are noticeably narrower than other aircraft. If the seat next to you was occupied you would quickly notice how little width you have.
We usually prefer the seats at the front of economy. The service is usually better. The seat itself is a good seat, with window view and good for making a quick exit on landing. Although when we landed in Newcastle EK35 they couldn't get the air bridge to lock, so we had to walk the full length of the plane and go down the steps, we were the last out.. Just your luck I suppose. Generally good flight, good food, and service.
Was my first ever flight and really enjoyed with a window seat 12k.
The 777 in the 10 abreast configuration is terrible! Flew Dubai to Rome. We sat in the 2 seats J/K at the back, hoping for that little bit of extra space and comfort, it was TERRIBLE. Cramped, and watch out for the overhead lockers, there is some equipment stowed here, so it can be tight if you are slow to your seat. Seats in general are uncomfortable, I will now avoid Emirates if 777. A380 was ok in comparison. Don't pay extra for these seats, waste of money. Stay away from Emirates 777.
The whole row (6) is located close to the entry doors, in an remarcable cold area. Very unconfortable.
There is a plastic storage box built into the seat in front which prevents you from storing your bag underneath the seat, and means you are unable to fully stretch your legs.
Found it quite spacious and less claustrophobic sitting in this seat. Nice and private with sense of space.
Avoid. Because of the pseudo-bulkhead, you have to squeeze your precious stuff into the overhead lockers already occupied by crew's equipment during TTL (without assistence from the crew), and passengers tend to cross from one aisle to another using your legroom, carelessly stomping on your bags.
Unfortunate to have flown on EK408 and EK409 between Melbourne (Aus) and Dubai. We had the 2nd row of two seats at the rear of the aircraft on both flights. Seating was cramped, aisles very narrow and couldn't complain about service as there wasn't any. A budget airline would probably have been better. For a relatively long haul flight these aircraft are shocking.
Basinets in Economy just behind a curtain (no bulkhead) exceptionally bothersome.
Even though I was seating just before the lavatory, the recline was great! The leg It was limited or anything. The legroom was also great! The ICE system when I fly was the latest one and it was awesome. It sometimes lag for a couple of minutes but everything is fine. The remote controller also has screen on it so you can watch a movie while checking out your location.
Terrible 2-3-2 configuration in Business, narrow and short seats, no direct aisle access from a window seat, keep bumping into your neighbor on the way in and out. Plus slow service... Terrible experience. Emirates 777 J class is overhyped and hugely underwhelming. If Etihad flew this route I'd take them instead any day.
I flew from CPT to DXB on this plane in April and found it quite comfortable for both sitting and sleeping. The extra mattress provided after take-off really does help in evening out any irregularities and the very slight angle of the lie-flat bed didn't affect me at all. The service from the cabin crew was excellent and the meals of a high standard with a good choice of dishes. Whilst the 2-3-2 layout is possibly not the best layout, I didn't find that sitting in the window seat presented any real issues in getting out into the aisle. Personally I tend not to bother with the in -flight entertainment (ICE) but from what I looked at on this flight it was very extensive. Unfortunately the aircraft I was on didn't have live TV as I had watched that on my flight from DXB to CPT in late March. When taken in conjunction with free chaufeur drive to and from the airport for business class customers I would certainly fly with Emirates and in this aircraft again.
I'm currently sitting in this seat. The best thing about this flight is the wi-fi. Legroom is fine. Three windows within reach. ICE screen is quite far away on the bulkhead and it's impossible not to be distracted by your neighbor's screen. However, by far the WORST thing about thing really aged aircraft is the angle-flat bed. It is desperately and unavoidably uncomfortable, with the thinnest of seat padding over the metal frame (the quilted seat cover they offer doesn't help). I think the toilet seats are more comfortable. Forget trying to take a nap. There is simply no comfortable position to lie in, especially on your side. When you book on Emirates site, their description of "What's on your flight" is "Stretch out on flat-bed seats in Business Class" - no mention of 20-year old angle-flat seats! This is bait and switch. Emirates - it's time to off-load these old planes to some third-world airline. It's a rip-off to charge these fares for such garbage quality compared to your other offerings. My Skywards status is Gold, so this is obviously not my first trip on Emirates, And Ive flown to Cape Town a few times too, but never had this configuration. But it will be last on this piece of junk even if I have to fly via Hong Kong to Cape Town.
Standard Economy seat however has only 1 window that you have to lean forward to see out of due to the Boeing fuselage design. The panel next to the seat is missing a window.
Whilst in a good position re noise & light etc., these supposedly lie-flat seats are very uncomfortable and the sleeping area very narrow. I never want to fly on one of these again - sleep impossible. Allied to this is the intensely irritating ICE system that keeps on switching itself back on for no apparent reason.
ICE entertainment was cool but seats were narrow for a 6 hr flight. You may get a partial window view as the window in 14K is misaligned
