I think I have asked this before but can't find it

I know a lot of guys in UK use these airlines and transit in these airports

Which is better?

Thanks

Both excellent, comes down to route and aircraft used. I would always choose Emirates if an A380 service.

Experienced Emirates A380 biz class and Dubai airport once. Well...once is enough.

Cathay Pacific is still my preferred airline to the West.

If its going to be a long layover for airport experience I will go with Emirates.
Here's a comparison vid I found. I assume its gonna be economy.

I love Emirates A380 business class. What went wrong? ..55

All my trips to NZ via Thailand I always try to choose Emirates A380. Even economy feels good.

Hello, well I think they over did it with the interior design, just not my style. And the lounge at Dubai is like a super market.

I thought the lounge was ok. We don't get supermarkets that nice in the UK... 55

The in-airport hotel isn't bad either.

May have found other Asian options

But if my stepson coming, a but harder matching Ao's one way flight to his r/t

But will pay up a bit to avoid the Middle Eastern ones

Comments above ^

And Ao would not be thrilled connecting in middle East anyways....
If I can pay $500 more to avoid it, not a big deal
I pay extra so I can get Emirates... not to avoid it... 55

Dubai Airport is huge. Bigger than Bangkok, you'd hardly know you were in the ME...

You aren't married
And I am only about 40% of the time 555

But if I book my wife on a flight that she borderline gets sexually assaulted....
That will not be great for the home life!

I told you not to go to Doha... 55

What are the alternative routes... and will she be any safer?

I brought my mum, dad and sister through Dubai... and would do so again. In fact the UK Airport is probably more aggressive towards passengers... and as for the US...

Narita and Seoul
She will be more comfortable there
Plus if Nut is flying back solo, she wouldn't want him flying through ME

So that's sorted!
