Hot towels on boarding would be wonderful. Pre meal drinks served before the meal is served rather than after would be very welcome - a chance to relax and unwind.

Our flight was changed before we left for the trip without any offer of compensation or offer of transfers for the inconvenience. Emirates did not live up to their reputation and was definitely not worth the money
