We breezed through check in. Within about ten minutes all was done, baggage checked in, our check in etc.. As we approached the Emirates Check in Section, a man referred us straight over to his colleague, she was fantastic, checked us in then referred us over to check our baggage in. There were no queues at all as we had a baby, so we went straight through to the priority line. Everything was organised and continually flowing. It was stress free, no hassles, no headache and very easy. The staff working for Emirates were all polite, helpful and really organised. This was just the beginning of the journey and this painLESS process made it all absolutely worthwhile.
At the Departure lounge, a man collected our pram to take it onto the plane, again the process was swift, because we had a baby we were first onto the plane and allocated our seats which were the BEST SEATS as we had the bassinet ones. Loads of leg room and a bassinet seat allocated for Drissialemoy (which she never slept in off course, as she wanted to just cling on me throughout the journey - Lol).. There were individual TV screens on each seat with loads of films and programmes to choose from, and a large LCD allocated in front of us to monitor the journey etc.. The Stewardesses (who were in love with Drissialemoy from the minute they clocked her in the lounge area) brought her a toy and bag filled with baby stuff.
The plane we flew on was a A380 Airbus. It's HUGE. It has the three rows, middle left and right and has an upstairs which is for Business Class Passengers. Apparently there are showers up there too. For once there were plenty of toilets to choose from so queues were not that long. I've been on planes before, where there's always people queuing so it puts you off going to the toilet as you end up waiting for so long..
On another note, (nothing to do with the service at all) - the turbulence we experienced scared me a little bit. The seat belt sign was on for long periods of time, so the toilets were out of action. The plane was a bumpy ride, and it did at times jerk quite furiously. *SCARY!!*
The overall Emirates experience was AAAA +
The staff and service were excellent and I definitely will choose to fly with them again. I honestly think this flight was the best one I have flown with, and trust me I have flown on many flights. Nice staff and very good service overall.
