Hello from Dubai! Ford and I just took the 15hr10min flight on Emirates in first class from Los Angeles (this was a paid first class fare, thanks to an amazing fare sale Emirates published last year, which will earn us a ton of Alaska miles). While I’ll have a full trip report soon, in this post I wanted to share my initial impressions.
While I flew Emirates’ new 777 first class earlier this year, it has been a couple of years since I’ve flown Emirates’ A380 first class, which I typically consider to be the most fun first class products in the world… and this flight reinforced that.
On the surface Emirates’ A380 first class cabin isn’t that private or spacious, as it has 14 seats, but in my experience it’s rarely more than half full (on this flight there were four other passengers).
