Couldn't justify the extra miles and extra time in a plane and airport with a mask on, went with option 2.
Switched to option 1 for the price of option 2 ;D

Debating which flight to take.

Option 1:

MLE - AUH on EY in J 11:45PM - 3:05AM on a A320
AUH - JFK on EY in F 8:10AM - 1:50PM on a 787-9

Pros: Fly in F for the long haul
Cons: It's not the A380 & the flight times are horrible

or

Option 2:

MLE - DXB on EK in J 6:20PM - 9:35PM on a 777
DXB - JFK on EK in J 8:30AM - 1:55PM on a 777

Pros: Normal flight times
Cons: J on the 777 isn't great

If I take option 1, I'll have several hours layover in MLE in addition to the 5 hour layover in AUH in middle of the night. On the other hand, flying on EK J isn't too great based on the pictures I've seen.
Alternatively, I can go:

MLE - DXB in J on a 777
DXB - LHR - in F on A380
LHR - JFK in J on AA 777

Longer travel time, but can fly the shower class.

Option 1
Provided you can ise lounge during layover.
F on the long haul no doubt.

Option 1.

Option 2 has a long layover.
Also option 1 give potentially time to sleep on the flight
While Option 2 - layover is the middle of night with a really long stop.

The only issue is, doesn't seem like the F lounge has any sort of rooms to be able to sleep in. So it's just sitting on a chair, in the lounge, for half the night.

Option 1.

Option 2 has a long layover.

That's true, but with an overnight layover I can get a hotel and a normal night's sleep.

So far, I have option 1 booked though.
