Good enough for short flights. Wouldn’t make a long trip with them.

Unfortunately, I've got to long haul with them from JFK. Thanks for the input.

Have your $25 in exact change for your visa if going into Cairo. Asking them to make change (which will be in local currency) is asking too much of them. Don’t use CC at terminal.

It doesn't serve alcohol? Ugh, no champagne is business class? Why bother!

Happy day! The organization sprung for business class on Emirates through Dubai on their upgraded 777-200LR.

I'll lumber off the plane fat, dumb and happy.

Best business class in the industry IMO. The 380 is even better.

It’s extraordinary, Emirates really got great value out of the 150 million they spent to refurbish the 772 fleet. The best part about it is it’s a direct flight from FLL - DXB.

But at the same time, I have to laugh, there was a passenger who was complaining about the lack of a lounge at Ft. Lauderdale (Terminal 3) and I just kept thinking to myself, “Try flying coach DEN - LAX - AUK - PER.” I walked off that trip injured.
