Hey guys! Did you miss me? It’s been a while since I posted anything, sorry for the disappearance. I am doing fine here. Anyway wishing you guys a Happy New Year 2018! 🙂
I travelled to London in December 2017. This post is mainly about my experience flying with Emirates. My first time with them from Kuala Lumpur to London via Dubai. I choose Emirates as I wanted to experience travelling to London with a stopover thinking it will be less stressful as you won’t be stuck on a plane for 13+ hours.
After weeks of purchasing the flight tickets, finally, it’s time to go to London! Yeayy! J J I am very excited to go to London this time as I will be experiencing how Christmas is being celebrated in the UK.
Back to Emirates, the check-in at KLIA was smooth. The boarding announcement was clear. The staffs were welcoming and friendly.
Once I got onto the plane, the setting is almost similar to Malaysia Airlines A380. The cabin environment was nice with good ventilation, lighting and temperature. Take-off and landing were decent for A380 plane. The seats were comfortable considering I am 6’2 in a normal seat. Point to note, I did pay additional for the seat selection. The ICE infotainment system is fantastic and you can watch so many programs which are cool.
I was not too impressed with the in-flight dining. Some item was out of stock and they don’t seem to ‘entertain’ additional requests. At one point, I requested for soft drinks in between meals but didn’t get any.
One thing that I don’t like about Emirates is the baggage allocation of 20kg per person which is horrendous. Most of the other airlines provide at least 25kg for such long distance travelling. I don’t mind flying again with Emirates if the cost of the flight is significantly lower than other airlines.
