Brilliant food and wine selection. Ordered the roast guinea fowl - great presentation and was restaurant quality. As always, Emirates in-flight entertainment is the top of its game, offering a selection of blockbuster hits.
Fantastic experience on this flight. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Food was superb and the wine and drinks choices exceeded expectations. Row 2 in first class has wider suite than first due to the narrowing fuselage.
This plane was configured to a two class cabin of business and economy. Important thing to note when choosing your seat is to avoid rows 1 and 2. The narrower fuselage at the front of the plane makes for a very cramped first couple of rows.
Bar area is a bit dated, and the food was surprisingly disappointing. Wine list and drinks choices were great and the seating was phenomenal (very spacious yet intimate).
First class suits on the Emirates 777 are great. Much more privacy than the A380s and with only 8 seats, it feels a lot more exclusive and personal. Service was without fault and transfer to and from the airport was hassle free.
Seats and service were excellent on the flight. Slight delay at Heathrow Airport waiting for the chauffeur service at Heathrow due to the full flight. They should really have more cars ready in advance.
Bar at the back of the plane is a superb feature on long haul flights. Transfer in Brisbane was straightforward and hassle free.
Food a step up on Australasian routes from others. Service was superb.
Comfortable seats with great service. However seats have a higher partition on the 777s which gives more privacy from others in the cabin. Also less seats in first on the 777s.
