    Their cattle class would be first class on the planes I travel on.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    I have mixed feelings about Emirates. love their planes, service and pricing. but it does make the trip to LOS a bit longer for me in comparison to using Singapore Airlines. and I am still not sold on Dubai airport as a transit stop.

    I do like their Perth to London setup. They try to keep flying in daylight to avoid jet lag.
    Plus you have the option of a Dubai stopover to break up the flying time into 10 plus 7.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    When the A380s were relatively new, I flew from Melbourne to Sydney via Auckland with Emirates (cheap airfares to NZ), only stayed in Auckland 2 hours (plenty! 555), but flew to Sydney on the A380, upgraded to business for 16 000 pts, great experience.

    Hard to believe A380's in service 7 years already.
