About Emirates

Emirates is based in Dubai and operates out of its hub at Dubai International Airport. It is a full-service airline owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai and was founded by the royal family of Dubai. The company has been around since 1985 and nearly joined the Star Alliance in 2000. Several airlines, including Tap Portugal, Japan Airlines and Air Mauritius, operate codeshares with the airline. Emirates has a huge fleet of more than 200 planes, which is no surprise as it is the largest Middle Eastern carrier.

There are cheap Emirates flights to cities across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East, giving its passengers more than 150 destinations to choose from.

Passengers on Emirates cheap flights can opt to check in online. This service is open from 48 hours prior to flight departure and closes 90 minute before takeoff. Passengers can check in online with their surname and booking reference. Checking in online allows passengers to print out their own boarding pass and grants them permission to head straight for the boarding gate if they have no luggage to check in. If passengers do have luggage to check in, baggage drop-off counters are readily available. In house check-in is also available for Emirates flights, and passengers can simply visit one of its check-in counters at their departure airport.

Flydubai airlines was a disappointment; for nearly a five hour journey, it didn't offer any drinks, light snacks or even a blanket. There was no entertainment on board. All these had to be paid for in addition to the fare which seems absolutely ridiculous!

Overall disappointing. Lack of management, coordination and team work of air stewards. Completely disorganised and disappointing. Sat and watched one air hostess constantly eating and saying how hungry she was. I asked for a headset was provided with a used one - why? Food was disgusting. Watched one steward constantly flirting with one of the air hostess - totally unprofessional and unacceptable. The worst airline experience in my life!

I spent extra money for earlier flight to arrive in my destination. All my money and effort was wasted when Emirate flight frome LHR did not leave on time or arrive in time at DBX to catch next flight to YGN. I am very disappointed with the service I received.

I travelled with my nearly 2 year old son. This meant his flight was free but for large parts he was on my lap. Can't complain about that but would have appreciated a child meal for him rather than the baby food on offer.

Needs serious attention and refurbishment if this airport is to be recognised as anything other than a bus stop.

The trip was great, all flights were on time, the food was nice, only that in terms of Music I didnt see much African music. I would appreciate our own greats like Oliver Mtukudzi and Thomas Mapfumo's Chipo Ndechangu

Booked on Emirates but two of the three legs were operated by Qantas. Singapore to Sydney was one of the most uncomfortable flights I have endured. The experience was marginally redeemed by the final leg operated by Emirates themselves.

Date 2017-04-12 City U.K. Age Under 30 Class Economy

Flight was ok except all the delays we had. We had 3 delays, one was in Bangkong to Hong Kong for 2 hours. At least we were giving snacks and drinks while we waited. We then had another delays in Hong Kong to Dubai for 2 hours which we weren't offered any foods or drinks. We also missed our connection flight back to Manchester (U.K.) due to the delay we had in Hong Kong so we had to wait for 7 hours for our next flight. I was very disappointed that we weren't offered anything at all when we got to Dubai. We weren't offered any foods or refreshments so we had to buy our own food and drinks. Also I found on the plane from Hong Kong to Dubai there was a screw driver left on the seat!!!
