My seat, 10A.

The buttons for controlling the window shields.

A very spacious legroom.

Emirates offers complimentary stay at hotels near the Dubai International Airport for passengers who have connecting times of 8 hours or more provided there is no earlier flight available. As I entered the Emirates Lounge, I got this hotel voucher which gave me 1 night stay at the Copthorne Airport Hotel as well as complimentary dinner. Cool!

The welcome drink: a glass of champagne!

Meal

A plate of heated nuts and a glass of mango juice was served after offering hot towels.

Conclusion

 

It was my first time to fly with Emirates in business class and I have to say that they really have a very good product. The food tasted excellent, the service was very friendly, and the cabin looked fresh and nice. The delay on our arrival in Dubai due to sandstorm was something that we can not control. Overall, a very pleasant trip. Shukran, Emirates!
