Emirates Master Thread
« on: December 21, 2016, 02:46:46 PM »
I couldn't find any Emirates master thread  So I figured I might as well start

Are the emirates 777 a "unique" experience or is that mostly only with he 380?

I'm looking to book a revenue ticket for my son in J on EK, CAI-DXB-DEL and DEL-DXB-DEL.

Their website says that there is chauffer service for both F and J passengers, but apparently it doesn't apply to "transit" passengers, i.e., those who are stopping over for less than 24h.

So, would he get chauffer service to and from CAI and DEL, but not in DXB?

Also, is there an arrival lounge for J passengers in DXB?  Thanks, everyone.

Assuming there is no exception for those locales, he should get one at origin and destination.

That said, if he just asks for chauffeur in DXB, he'll likely get one from DXB, but he will not get from in DXB to airport.

Should be arrival lounge, but GIYF.

Thanks re the chauffer.
Sometimes GINYF.
I found this: https://www.emirates.com/english/plan_book/dubai_international_airport/emirates_terminal_3/arrivals.aspx
but it doesn't say anything about an arrival lounge (e.g., showers, snacks). 
And nothing about an arrivals lounge on their lounge page:https://www.emirates.com/english/flying/lounges/dubai_airport_lounges/dubai_airport_lounges.aspx.

Besides, I trust you and others here more than anything on their website.  ;)

If I cancel 2 tickets do they go back into the inventory right away? in other wordsIf I cancel a ticket can I rebook it immediately after or risky that it might get blocked out or take time to be available again?
TY

There has been a problem lately with EK premium cabin award booking. Have not been able to book even when showing availability on QF.

For transfer time see here:

Price ?
的 have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

If I want to fly TLV-MXP with Elal, and connect from there with EK to JFK, is there any way I can make it into a single booking (like to try to book it thru Jetblue)?
Thanks

Sucks.  They bumped me from EK208 to EK202.  So instead of 8.5 hours in DXB i get 1.5  >:(
