Flying Emirates Business class

Geraldine Boshoff, Contract and Marketing Manager at Sure Travel, shares her story of flying Emirates business class to Bangkok, Thailand. If you’re thinking of choosing or upgrading to Emirates business class, it comes highly recommend!

Here’s what Geraldine had to say…

I enjoyed such a wonderful trip on Emirates to Bangkok, Thailand, in June this year.

EK 773 - from Johannesburg to Dubai. Great crew and service.
EK384 - from Dubai to Bangkok on an A380. Wonderful! Service, seating, etc.
EK371 - from Bangkok to Dubai. Also on an A380 and once again a great experience.
EK770 - from Dubai to Cape Town was equally great. Hearing Afrikaans from the captain in the cockpit was a bonus.

Why I enjoyed flying Emirates business class:
• The Emirates experience was truly wonderful.
• The crew made me feel comfortable and special at all times.
• The in-flight entertainment "ICE" is great and I had time to catch up on a few movies.
• All the check-in counter staff were friendly and helpful.
• The Emirates amenity bags contain some lovely products.
• I really enjoyed the choice of food and wine on-board and to be served at a time convenient to each client is just amazing.

A South African pilot flew us from Dubai to Cape Town which was a nice touch of home.

The Dubai airport experience:
• Dubai Airport is a maze of duty free shops, restaurants and lounges. A lot of choice.
• South Africans who are not flying in First or Business class may visit the Marhaba Lounges which are free of charge for many of the Platinum and Gold cardholders of most South African Banks. Check with your bank if you would have access.

It was really a wonderful experience flying business class with Emirates and I’d highly recommend it. Emirates can rightfully be proud of their product, crew and service.
