  1. The a380 is called the flying cattle car, and like the 787 NightmareLiner, not a plane I'd ever want to be forced to fly on.

  2. It’s very nice!

    Nowhere to hang your jacket and I found the seat quite narrow.
    For some obscure reason they have this large chrome handle on entry which makes access uncomfortable for me.
    Main courses were served in airline economy dishes which I thought very poor and on both legs, Bkk to Dubai , then Dubai to London. I did not enjoy the food.
    1st leg staff were great, second leg cocky steward was too big for his boots. I prefer the service on oriental airlines

  4. Someone reviewed a similar Emirates upper deck business class and complained of a 2 3. 2 seat configuration. Needless to say he came up with a very negative review because he was seated in the middle row of the 3 seat business class seat. Sorry it was on the 747 upper deck.

  5. Can you use emirates lounge with priority pass ?

  6. Thanks so much. Excellent video!

  7. I have been flying Emirates for the past 31 years and mostly business class . Never tire of traveling Emirates . By far the best

    Thank you for this overview, it is one of the best I have seen in YouTube 🙏🏼🥰

  9. I traveled from Dubai to Washington and got a great upgrade offer for business on the Emirates A380. Best 14 hours!!!

  10. The A380 is such a great plane, it’s a crying shame that this plane won’t be made anymore.

  11. ❤. EMIIRATES. 👍

  12. Not so great if you’re on the aisle. I’m sure it’s narrower than other aircraft and you’ve got people on top of you every time anyone comes down the aisle. Get a proper window seat and it’s good though.

  13. Does Emirates serve vegetarian options in A380 business main course lunch/dinner? I only saw meat/sea food options. I would like to request vegetarian option for main course but would like to try breakfast and desserts in my upcoming trip.

  14. Hello david were you are from i like youre total video thxx

    Simply Aviation, actually, i am frequent flyer with Emirates on business class and first class, i am enjoying the foods and chufferoue, and everything, this time, is pricing, but i hope next time, is much more cheaper too?

  16. Hate you mask!😡😡😡😡

  17. How much was the ticket

  18. Just amazing!! Emirates always favorite and your channel too❤️💯💯

  19. Great video. I love the A380.

  20. I've flown EK business numerous times and the mini bar is a joke because you still have to call the flight attendant for ice and a glass…so what's the point 🤔 (And it's the same in first as well.)

    I wish that Emirates used the A380 on DXB-DFW.

  22. Great info! Looking to go to Male in 23 and wanted to do business class, but it's up to 7500 round trip. Going to try calling and negotiating since we're a group of four. If not economy it is and hope to get this offer although being with a group might hurt that chance. Hmmm…why am I consumed with drinking at a bar in a plane at 35K feet? Must…happen…

  23. just flew Emirates A380 NEW Business and checked out the onboard Lounge!! Check out my video!! AMAZING FLIGHT!!!

  24. 3:06 What? That's not good! Will the A380s be extinct??

  25. You are so wrong about the a380

  26. 0:10 I so agree! This is why I like Emirates a lot! Over ANY other Airlines!!! Only Emirates can make so many A380s! I also think that all B777s in Emirates Fleet will disappear, because they are not even as luxurious as the A380s. I think one day, we will end up having only Airbus A380s of Emirates. Maybe we might add some Boeing 747s, because those are like, one full lower deck and a partial upper deck. But I don't know yet. What I am quite sure of though, is all B777s are going to disappear one day, and we might only have A380s. What's your opinion?
