Our rating:
Advantages of Emirates are the fast growing number of destinations worldwide. Good service, in-flight entertainment with AVOD (Audio Video On Demand) and internet on-board (A380 only). The fleet is young and very well maintained. It is also possible to select a seat and check in online.

Emirates is an above average airline and offers a good on-board service. However, try to avoid business class on the airbus A330 and A340. We recommend Emirates for flights from, via and to the Middle East. Emirates is comparable with airlines such as Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.
